No lunch needed, and eat a light breakfast.
We will be going to "Coopers BBQ" after the Museum,, for some good Texas BBQ...

Ride safe, Ted

Let me guess...

I just realized; I'm not sure that I mentioned the cost to see the Museum?

If not, here it is..  {NOTE: If you choose to go back another day, ticket cost is for 2 days at the museum}

WWII Veterans: Free
Adults: $15
Seniors 65+: $12
Military w/ID (active or retired): $10 (ID must be presented when you arrive at the museum)
Children 6+ & Students w/ID: $7  (ID must be presented when you arrive at the museum)
Children 5 & under: Free
School Groups (advance reservation required):  Free
Bus Tours/Groups (advance reservation required): $8


I'm going to attempt to get the Group rate ($8), but doubtful I can.
  Update; We got the $8 group rate.

Ride safe, Ted

Harry,  in your case, it might work.
   But,,, you have to shave your mustache, wear a wig, ride in a baby stroller, say nothing,,,, and have a pacifier in your mouth.
                                                                          ;)

The good news "is" my crying and whining worked.  We got the $8 group rate.
  The bad news "is" we didn't get the Marine Colonel I wanted as a guide. {But we have another Guide arranged}.
   More bad news;  Someone has to push Harry in the baby Stroller...   

PS:  I may need some help here. {as I'll be doing arrangements for the group}..
  The lady (Stephanie Hagee) that is helping us, wants a ride on a motorcycle, and also/maybe some of the other Ladies that work there.....
     Is anyone willing to take some ladies for a quick ride on there motorcycle?   :motonoises:

PS: Stephanie's Dad/General Hagee is the President of the Museum...
           So, "NO" wheelies thru town..

Ride safe, Ted

I might try pulling out my grad school ID and seeing if they'll give me the student rate. The Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg does.

(Actually, probably won't...I am 100% behind supporting efforts like this to preserve our history.)

Not-a problem.
     I'm more than happy to arrange a Baby Stroller ride for Harry...

Irene, Harry needs a baby bonnet to make his "under 5" attempt more plausible.
          Can you bring a Giant one for his swollen head so he doesn't have to wear a wig?
            "Plus" I think he'll look cute.

Ride safe, Ted

PS: Geez, some people (ie; Harry) will do anything to save $8.00..   :-[

Ed, I think at least three  of  us have faculty ID's. We could've said we were hosting a "Senior enrichment" tour....

Ted asked me to post the route he planed, I followed it as close as I could. One of you "adventurous" souls may have to load it into Ted's GPS for him.
I've titled it Ted's Nimitz Adventure Tour.
Don't let the "Adventure" part of the title fool you, as far as I know Ted doesn't have any off pavement stuff planed so you don't need an Adventure bike to
take the ride. I put that in the title because I've been told that "riding with Ted is always an adventure".   :D
Now I won't say who told me that  :-X but his screen name rhymes with Got No Mild Jerky.
