In little more than 12 hours I’ll be on my way to the airport to fly west to California where I’ll meet fellow Tea Party Express team members who are also flying in from all over the country. The goal: Kick off a 17-day coast to coast tour, originating from the Napa Valley Fairgrounds on Saturday.
I’ve packed everything I’ll need for as many days in my trusty trim black Travelpro Roll-Aboard suitcase and a backpack that will stow my computer and associated paraphernalia. Traveling light this time around. (I’ll let you know how that works out…) No bags to check, everything travels with me. I learned the last time when the garment bag with all my clothing didn’t make it to Reno when I did.
And I’m keeping an eye on the weather. The winds associated with “Mean Irene” have already picked up and are predicted to be blowing here on the Space Coast at 25-35 mph overnight with rain squalls. Hoping by the time I leave in the morning, the worst will have caromed north of us and the drive to the airport will be event-free. We here in Florida got lucky this time. My sympathy is with the folks on the Carolina outer banks and in the NY/NJ/NE area who will suffer the full brunt of this first ferocious hurricane of the season. Good times…
Here’s the latest bulletin from the Sacramento HQ offices of the Tea Party Express. I hope you’ll come out and join us if we’re rolling into a town near you. Let’s show the naysayers on the left (and the DC-GOP cocktail party crowd) that we the people mean business. Remember, there’s strength in numbers.
