The Coors beer plant is just about 2 blocks west of my office in Golden, CO...nice little campground right on Clear Creek right here in town. Clear Creek is where the water supposedly comes from to make Coors.

I would think the convoy would have to pass through Colorado one way or the other...don't know what your timing would be like, but all our rallies are posted on the DenCO/RMVAC websites...love to have you join us!

punch pins

This is great the punch pins our going into our map. It looks like there might be a route falling into place. I'm working on a map I can post. Remember you can make posts on the Blog as well. Also Tim has made a spot for us on the VAP for this Thursday. Here are the web address again.

Keep 'em coming!

Thanks folks!

Nice suggestions for routes, rallies, places to visit! Keep the suggestions coming! We are creating a map with push pins and keeping track! We'd love more ideas!

If you think about it, you might also chirp in with the weather in your neck of the woods during May, June, July...

Map

Well here is whats beginning to present itself on the map. This is based on those who have added input to the site so far. This is just a beginning. So don't be afraid to offer new points just because they don't appear on the maps yet. Here is whats starting to present itself. Begin in Yreka California,
attend Cassini Ranch rally on the Russian River. Then head south, Maybe highway 50, across to Alburque, then follow the Santa Fe Trail up to Kansas City, next pickup the Lewis and Clark trail eastward. Then if you look at map 3 The suggested route swings southeast, next north by norteast up to NYC, Wilgus State Park Rendevous Rally, next swing southwest back to the Lewis & Clark Route and then basiclly follow it up into Washington, then finally back home to Yreka. Remember at this point this is just a general plan. Time, weather, the willingness of the gods and good fortune could change things. The purpose of the forum and the Blog will be to keep all informed of how things progress. This is going to be an adventure dictated by the journey and the experience. Schedules are not for the retired. Many of you may not be able to decide to participate untill you see us approaching. Maybe it will be a lot like the Lewis & Clark trek itself. Post, Post, Post. We have lots of push pins. This is meant to be living experience.

i agree completely with an open travel timeline.

Summertime and the living is easy!

Don, Don't forget the I-80 corridor! If you come anywhere near the Quad Cities remember we are the only place in the U.S. where the Mississippi River runs East and West instead of North and South! I live in Illinois just south of Rock Island (The Rock Island Lines R.R.) and to go to Iowa I have to head North! During the summer months we have lots to see and do here. Just to name a few... Bix Biederbeike Jazz Festival and Marathon, Sturgess-On-The-River Both in Davenport, Iowa. The Rock Island Arsenal is home to the U.S. Army Armament Command. It is located between Ia. and Il. in the middle of the Mississippi River. It was the site of Fort Armstrong in the 1830's and housed Confederate P.O.W.'s during the Civil War! There is a Confederate Graveyard located on the island that is decorated with Confederate flags over the 4th of July Holiday! It was also the site of the first Bridge to span the Mississippi River. I could go on but for now I'll let you decide if you want more information from the Heart of the Midwest! Ed

BIGED52, these ideas sound like more pins on the map, thanks. Before too long I will start detail maps of given areas with more detail. Your type of response is just what we need. Thanks again Don

A couple of my distant relatives came to this continent between 1630 and 1640. They landed in Virginia. So yes I'd like to make it to that area and do some resurch. thanks Don

If you can make it through Arkansas you can experience the absolutely amazing natural beauty of the state. The north-western quarter is incredible with curving mountain drives and beautiful vistas. Plus, Lake Ouachita and Lake Catherine (near Hot Springs) are gorgeous and I have personally camped at each several times and thoroughly enjoyed it. Petit Jean State Park is another gorgeous place not far from Little Rock. (We live 25 miles south of Little Rock.) Just west of Little Rock is Pinnacle Mountain State Park, but I am not sure if they allow camping there. Little Rock has the Clinton Museum (if you are interested), the inital site of school desegregation in the south (Central High), the house that was used in the opening shots for Designing Women, the submarine U.S.S. Razorback, and lots of other attractions. Pine Bluff has the Railroad Museum and the National Band Museum and Sheridan has the Grant County Museum. Lots of neat stuff to see and do!

Hope to see you on your travels!

Susan & Brad

Alumatube, Thanks for the information. Once again it looks like more pins in the Map. Speaking of maps any websites you can suggest.
