Jim Robinson and a bunch of FReepers are going Saturday July 22 to the Ronald Reagan Library and Museum in Simi Valley -- Come join us! There is a LOT to see, so if you can, arrive between 10 and noon for a head start. Jim & Crew will probably arrive about noon and we'll have lunch, then most of us will tour as a group in the afternoon.
At NOON, find the tables near the Berlin Wall display--there are tables where we can picnic. Bring Your Own--or bring enough to share! There is covered seating for 100, 1st come 1st served.
Make a crazy FR Badge or nametag! Bring cameras! Bring sunscreen and water. And...you might bring some American flags and signs in case we find a FReeping opportunity, ya never know....
Dinner will be off-site, location to be announced later.
"RSVP" by bumping this thread!
We've got people coming from Fresno, San Diego, the Inland Empire, Los Angeles---so if you want to carpool from one of these main areas, mention the general area you are coming from and your interest in carpooling, then work out the details by FREEPMAILing.

Darn. A vacation gets in the way or I'd be there in a New York minute.
What a great place to visit. Been there twice and will do so again soon. Have fun.
I'm so there! DH is gone but DD might go.
.....yes....a great place with tons of historical artifacts plus Air Force One......one thing, since it is summer. If it is crowded, parking can be a bitch since the lot is not that huge and you can end of parking on the winding road up there.....I went in Dec when it was pouring rain and managed to get parking....but there were tons of cars parked up to a 1/2 mile down the hill........Great trip for all though.....I got the chills and teared up just standing at the magnificent grave site.....
Air Force One is there now!
I am there also.
caluvdubya and I hope to go up with onyx from San Diego
Sounds great!! I'll check with the hubby (fellow FREEPER) and make sure we are available. Hope we are. I really would love to do some FREEPER bonding in person :-).
AF1 will be great to see.
Looking forward to this.
You said an SUV, you might need a bus.
I have rented the auto!
They were none available in my price range. Smaller car, but I think cyber ant is going. We'll have others too (I hope).
I don't know how anyone can possibly see everything in a day!
Oh we did in '04! I spent too much time "shopping." I won't this time. (I hope).
BUMP and ping!
O.K. But if they haven't caught that tiger I'm bringing egg salad. If the tiger's history then it's pastrami. Tigers don't like potato salad do they?
The Reagan Museum encompasses 22,000 square feet of exhibit area and contains everything from Ronald Reagan's high school yearbook to a nuclear missile deactivated when the President and Mikhail Gorbachev signed the INF treaty. Our permanent collection of films, videos, objects, artifacts and a world-class line-up of rotating exhibits make the museum a lively, engaging place for children and their families to learn about the 40th President of the United States and his enduring legacy of leadership.

Hubby and Daughter want to go too. (we can follow in our car)!
Bring egg salad. That way we have 'shells' in case we need to shoot the tiger...
You're going too, right?
Yes! We can caravan. Please tell other San Diego FReepers. I want as many as possible to attend. I promise all, it's an unforgettable experience and in the company of FRiends, it's a perfect, perfect time.
I apologize if some of you have already been pinged
OT, Has anyone heard from cgk? I know she was having health issues but haven't heard anything in a long time.
Excellent job with the thread. Thank you, (((L))).
I'll see you here tomorry.
Bump, I'll be there.
Sure wish I could join in this outing but cannot. I did visit the magnificent RR Library in August 2004, two months after his death. Flowers were still piled up and everyone viewing short video of the funeral, came out wiping their eyes, some openly weeping during film.
I'm right down the street ping!

I'll change some travel plans to be there! Can't miss this event!
Thanks for the ping, Ron.
Sorry I can't be there ~ have a wonderful time!
You can feel the history and significance of the place. And to be in such a beautiful location to boot.
They were still working on the AF One exhibit when I was there, so it's something to look forward to next time.
NordP & Mr. NordP
WOO-HOO! You hawe made my day!
Oh, man! I don't want to miss this but we are going to be on an Alaskan cruise. I am pouting. I want to be BOTH places! We have not yet been to the Reagan Library and this would have been the perfect time to go and get to meet some freepers that I've not yet gotten a chance to meet at the same time. *sigh*
Oh well, jkphoto and I will be thinking about you all on the 22nd and will raise our glasses to all the fabulous FReepers in attendance and to the greatest president of my lifetime, God rest his soul.
Are you guys driving together?
Look forward to cocktails afterwards.
I know many of you haven't been out since Ronald Reagan was laid to rest - what a great excuse to get out there!
Ventura and Santa Barbara County Ping!!!
Bummer. We have another picnic that day in the S.F. Valley. It isn't until about 5:00, though, so maybe we can be there for a short time. (This summer have noticed several flags, flowers and remembrance messages placed at the Library sign at the corner of Madera and Presidential, compliments of tourists.)
Wow, I'll actually be in SoCal on vacation and might be able to attend!
Some over-exhuberant rangers shot the poor tiger a long time ago. Idiots. Didn't even try to subdue with tranquilizers.
