UPDATE: I received a reply from the Nimitz Museum today.
                  They gave me about 500 Nimitz Brochures to put out at Rally Registration.
                As far as the Museum trip planning;  Things are looking good..........
                    Their working on special parking and arranging a *guide. {that has lots of details on the Museum Displays}...

Now,,, back to the planning; 
                 Who "else" want's to go with us?

Ride safe, Ted

err, PS: I want to share my apologies in advance..   :sorry:
                 It appears that our **Guide is gonna' be a "Marine" Colonel.
                     {But, I'm sure I can help him}.

It has been awhile since anyone posted, and we got a little off track.
  Soooo, I decided to bring this post up again.

I think information about the ride might be listed on the National Rally site.
But this ride is not part of any planned group ride.

It is just me;
      I'm planning a personal day ride, and asking if any other COGger Buddies want to go with me...
        (I need to know how many are going so I can make arrangements for a guide/parking etc...)

"So", who else is interested??  :08:

I have it set up for Wednesday.
I'm thinking; we have a leisurely breakfast at the Motel, then roll out at 9:00 Am.

NOTE: I've made contact with my friend at the Nimitz Museum and she's working on arrangements. {parking/guide}
          Last year, we had a Memorial Plaque made for my Uncles that served in the Pacific. That plaque is now in the memorial area.
          While arranging the Plaque, I worked with her and the Colonel.

Not sure what festivities are planned at the Motel then night, but I plan to be back in plenty of time for those...

Hey, Ted

Count me in. Sounds like fun. Back during the last hill country rally in 98? 99? Whenever... Mr. Dombrowe and I took a day ride to the aircraft carrier down in Corpus Christi and had a pretty good time looking around in it. We were the only two in our tour group, so we got a pretty special tour. I gotta say, the only reason we decided to ride to the gulf that day was we thought it was going to be cooler near the water than where we were. But strangely enough, the closer we got to the coast, the hotter it got! (Whodathunkit?)  :-[  Was pretty warm that day. It was my last year wearing full black leather riding gear.  :truce:

If it gets too warm this year I'll just put the top up!   :)   Looking forward to the rally!   :great:

Good deal Jerry.
We'll see you there.

The Carrier {Lexington} in Corpus was the only Ship I was on while in the Navy.
We did a COG weekend ride to see her several years ago.
You'll see pictures of her at the Museum in the Pacific.
    I think she took a Kamikaze hit at Okinawa.

Some might opt go see the Lex. while at the National this year..

Ride safe, Ted

True, it did take a hit. There is a plac mounted on a railing at the fantail describing the hit and the ensuing carnage along with the names of the sailors that lost their lives in the attack.    :(

Great Jim.    I know you'll enjoy it..

Last weekend we did a ride from Kerrville, to Fredericksburg. {to see the Museum and check in with my contact there}...
As of now; Our guide is not locked in, but we do have private parking arranged inside the Museum complex...

After the Museum check in; we went past Enchanted Rock to Llano {for lunch at Coopers BBQ} and then we returned to Kerrville via some twisty rode back roads.  {Total loop was about 150 miles}
My thought is to use the same route when we do our Museum Trip..

I haven't done a recent count, but I think we have a bout 10-12 that plan to go?
  Who  else wants to go with us???

Ted

That is not the exact route we used in going from Llano back to Kerrville.  We went down RR 152, which is more scenic and has more twisties than Hwy 29.  Not sure if you made that change on purpose or by accident.
