.....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.....

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.)
