Yucca Mt. National Tour: We Need Help!

We are looking for someone to donate a vehicle that is able to tow a
1,500 -2,000 lb. cask with trailer for approximately one month. If
you have a heavy duty vehicle that you would like to donate forever
that would be handy too. We would like to have a small RV for this
purpose as we have not much money for hotels, etc. along the way. A
large truck that could seat 4-6 comfortably would work also. We also
need more crew to join us on the tour. Drivers, videographers etc.
We need a loan of a digital video camera compatible with MACS too.
The plan at this point is that the vehicle would be traveling from
Las Vegas through Arizona, New Mexico, through Texas to Colorado
and Kansas. From Kansas to meet with the other casks in St. Louis
Missouri on 6/11 Davenport Iowa 6/14, Chicago Illinois 6/16,
Baltimore Maryland 6/17, Washington DC 6/18. The route back would depend on whether the vote has happened by that time.
So we are looking at about 5,000-6,000 miles all together.
Citizen Alert has no money to offer you. (Small stipends will be
available to crew.) However, we would be pleased to have advertising
of you and/or your company on the vehicle to show you as a proud,
civic minded Nevada citizen/business. Also, as a 501c(3)
organization, your donation is
fully tax-deductible. We can also offer you our undying gratitude
and a piece about you in our next newsletter with a circulation of
Please feel free to contact us for more information on Citizen Alert,
the Yucca Mt. project, or the cask tour.
As time is of the essence here, we thank you in advance for your
quick and generous response in this matter.
