Old Man with a Sign Goes to DC

Deep breath Gale, deep breath!

As some of you already know, I'm taking The Sign to DC. Maybe I should say The Sign is taking me.

Y'all have no idea how much I appreciate all the support you have given me with your kind words and purchasing t-shirts.

I wonder if you can help by contributing to my journey?

My plan is to leave Fort Worth in the next 2 weeks. I want to take my time and meet people along the way. If some are so inclined to let me spend 2 or 3 days at their place as The Sign and I do our thing, that would be great. I want to take photos of people with The Sign along the way.

I will also be writing a blog and posting photos of my trip here while on the road:


Wouldn't it be great to see a photo of The Sign in front of the Lincoln Memorial? Can't believe I got emotional typing that last sentence. What the hell is that about?

After Washington, I might go on to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY. If I do that, I will still be wanting to meet and stay with people, take photos, and find those good intersections to stand at. Of course, and I'll keep writing about the journey. Wherever I go, The Sign will be the focus. She introduces me to so many neat people! Who knows where we may go from there?

Well, that's about it. I'm not sure exactly how much money I need for the trip because I'm not sure how long I'll stay on the road. So I put down $2,000. I'll give all the money that doesn't go for the journey with The Sign to the ACLU.
