travel itinerary

Here's our tentative plan, to be changed at any time! I pick Chili up in Tucson this morning and off we go down Highway 10 towards El Paso. Tonight, instead of going right into El Paso, we spend the night in Mesilla, NM. A small colonial town about 45 minutes out of El Paso. Mesilla is known for it's Chilis and civil war history. If you know my friend Chili, you know we need to go here ( she doesn't know about this yet!) Chili is a huge Civil war buff and is in-fact driving back to Bisbee this coming weekend to go to Piccacho peak's civil war re-enactment. A friend of mine form the Vineyard, "Run-around Sue", will be meeting us in Mesilla this evening as she is heading in the same direction.
Tomorow, off to El Paso! First we drop in to Hillary headquarters and get our marching orders. Hopefully we stir up some press too! As Madonna once said, "what good is doing anything if no one is there to watch?"
I am going to make reservations this morning at El Paso's only historic hotel, "The El Camino Real", in downtown EL Paso. Built in 1914, this hotel Known for it's tiffany, chandeliers, giant ballroooms, beautiful architecture, and the best bar in the southwest according to Bill's writer friend, Chuck Bowden. This extravagance comes compliments of Judy Nagle! This is how I've decided to spend that 100.00, Judy!
We then spend Tuesday at polling locations, and whatever the campaign needs... as long as it sounds fun to us!
Tuesday night, after the polls close, we get the hell out of El paso, and back on the road to stay somewhere on the way to Tucson... who knows! Then Wed. evening we fly to San Diego for a Leslie Hall show! Yea! Then it's my birthday ( March 6th)... 45 years old!

So glad to be a part of this excitement with you! Sounds like you two are going to have a blast! Kate, made your funny cake tonight. It's delicious!

Gretchen, I'm thinking of you all the time. Found another article about you in the Bear Essentials newspaper for kids and saved you a copy. Will mail with my check for the earrings.
