Yucca Mt. National Tour: We Need Help! Contact: Kalynda Tilges, Citizen Alert Kalynda@citizenalert.org
Posted: Friday, May 24, 2002

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 about 9,000.

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.
