This is my first post - EVER.

Please come to Valley Forge to show your support for America and her troops.

DIRECTIONS

If you are driving, the Freedoms Foundation is located on Route 23 just outside of Phoenixville, Pennsylvania. The Foundation street address is 1601 Valley Forge Road, Valley Forge, PA. If you need further directions, please call the Freedoms Foundation at 1-800-896-5488 or 610-933-8825.

From Pennsylvania Turnpike Depart the turnpike at Exit 24 (King of Prussia-Valley Forge).

At the next traffic light (route 252), proceed straight through on Route 23 West. Approximately one mile on your right at the top of the hill (where a large American flag is located) is the entrance to the Freedoms Foundation.

From I-95 and I-76 From I-95, take Route 676 West (Vine Street). This exit is located near the Benjamin Franklin Bridge or Center City Philadelphia. Stay on Route 676 which turns into Route 76 West.

Take I-95 North to Wilmington, Delaware. Look for 202 North. Take 202 North into Pennsylvania - it will be a 4 to 6 lane road with traffic lights. Near West Chester, it will veer off to the right and become a 4-lane highway. Follow that for about 15 miles until you see an exit for Pennsylvania 252. Take that north to into Valley Forge Park, and it will dead-end into PA 23 at a traffic light. Turn left at the light, and Freedom Foundation will be on your right after about a mile or so.

It takes me about 2 1/2 hrs to get to No.Virginia from my home - about 20 minutes south of Valley Forge.

The easiest way is to take
95 North through MD and Delaware.
Stay left to Wilmington-Philadelphia.
Take 495 (Delaware) around Wilmington towards Philadelphia.
This will re-connect to 95 N (at the Pa line).
Take 476 (The Blue Route) NORTH.
Exit at Rt.76 WEST towards Valley Forge.
Continue to follow directions I've posted.

There is MEGA-construction at Rt 202 & 76 in King of Prussia, so be prepared for slow-ups.

Dirtboy's directions might be better than mine. I believe his is a more direct route as the crow flies.

I initially was going to take them your way, but going up 202 misses all that lovely construction in King of Prussia (an elderly couple in a Mercury Marquis is purported to be lost for almost a week somewhere in the turnoff to 422).

Great first post. Wish you the best of luck.

We had between 8 and 10 thousand in Cleveland, and found lurkers by the droves when we set up a central car and identified it with a Free Republic sign.

If you have access to a D sized drawing printer, DoughtyOne has some great posters to make signs with.

Best of Luck from NorthEast Ohio.

"Blueprints" come in different sizes. "A" size is the same as a sheet of paper, 8 & 1/2 bt 11 inches. "B" is bigger, and "D" is what you see in the movies when they breakout the "floor plans" of a buildling. It's about 2 foot by 3 foot in size.

Thanks for that info. I don't have any equipment like that. Just a regular HP deskjet 722C printer. Maybe I'll copy some things and go to Kinko's.

For those who haven't been to Valley Forge - it's a beautiful park. Some of the trenches are still there, where the ground was too steep to farm on. It's a great running park as well, some people live nearby just to be able to run in that park whenever they like. It's also a pretty good natural fortress.

You might want to try a local company that would have an engineering department. They would have a D sized printer, and they might do it for free, especially if you only want one or two, not twenty like we ran off.

Try the county Republican party, they might be able to tell you who the company owners/CEOs are that are part of the local party. You might be able to get a few more that way.

This is what some of our signs looked like:

Thanks for that info. Some very good ideas.

Abner, were you at the protest against Gore stealing the election in Philadelphia at Independence Hall back in Nov/Dec 2000? I think I met you there.

I am pretty sure there is a gun show at King of Prussia that same weekend, it's about two blocks away from Valley Forge. I'll try to get this message over to the gun boards.

Excuse me, a little confused.

Are you saying you have a permit for a Ralley in a National Park? If so, do you have speakers, do you have a sound system, did you rent porta-potties, do you have security. Just some basic stuff. There are more questions.

I think the idea is great but do you have your act together and do you need more help?

I think they are legit questions before we start driving.

This is a Glenn Beck Rally for America. WPHT is putting it together. It isn't going to be in Valley Forge proper. It will be at The Freedoms Foundation. They have 106 acres in Valley Forge. Click my WPHT link above.

It is being heavily promoted here in the area on WPHT.

The rally is being advertised on Radio WPHT 1210 am "The Big Talker" in Philadelphia. I heard the radio ad today during Rush's show, and again on Michael Smerconish's show and Jeff Katz' show. I went to their website and copied the information. I personally don't have anything to do with planning. I'm just going to show up.

But, now that I think of it, I may fax Arlen Spector, Rick Santorum, my congressman, Curt Weldon (R-Pa) and whoever the congressman is for that district. I'll have to look it up.

Good for Glenn Beck. Rush sits back spewing, blah, blah, blah, and doing nothing for local participation.

Maybe Rush should stick his golden EIV mike in his ear. Saying that, I still love his program.

Beck's program was about to be flushed in one stroke before he took this activism approach. Smart move.

As long as Beck is (1) For The Troops and (2) For our President's decision, I will back him.

Terrific!

Neil Cavuto-major honcho on Fox News-head of business reporting-said he was SICK of the major nets and even major cable stations not carrying the patriot rallys when they are all over the anti-American protests.

Getting in touch with Neil just might get FOX CABLE NEWS there and this might, in turn, light a fire under the belly of the major media outlets who are presently ignoring the outpouring of patriotic support rising in our nation just now.

And just maybe CSPAN will film it if ya inform um! Ya might start by telling um how many attended Beck's other rallys this past Sat!!!!
