A Chance of a Lifetime for the July AR Challenge

By
Real Estate Agent with DFW FINE PROPERTIES 0506509

Second Entry for the ActiveRain July Challenge offered by Anna Banana, Carol Williams and Kathy Streib.

 

I plan to open the points store in the Rain later this fall. Points are subject to change due to how well you earn points on AR between now and then, depending on the gas crisis, including the time it takes for my recovery. However, if all is a go, as many people in the RAIN are welcome. You can sign up and make reservations in comments below. Voluntary active participation would be required for this amazing imaginary trip beginning on October 29, 2022, utilizing trained AR leadership.


Tentatively speaking, here is the plan. The trip begins from moment you step inside the Anna Banana Yellow Jet. Kathy Streib will do a security check; and Carol Williams will assign you a seat. Once you are cleared for takeoff and everyone is buckled up in their seats, Anna flips the switch. The Time Machine transports us back in time. Everyone on board is now 21 years old! We are ALL spring chickens!!!

 

The plane lands in Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. A stretch limousine awaits, and we will be driven to the Texas Motor Speedway in Forth Worth where we will meet inside my office located at the Speedway at DFW FINE PROPERTIES, 3575 Long Star Circle Ste 315, Fort Worth, TX. To preview in advance, go to Texas Motor Speedway. Nonalcoholic refreshments will be served, and you will view the racetrack from my wall of windows looking down at the tracks. Reporting down below for duty are George Souto and Ed Silva who will guide us to our own individual race cars for instructions on how to drive our super fast cars and learn about safety. Anyone with alcohol on their breath will be removed and replaced.

Drivers will use NASCAR Cup Style Racecars at ovals ¾ of a mile and greater. These “steel bodied racecars are stable at speeds of up to 160 mph and more.” When it is your turn to get behind the wheel you will be in control, driving “Xperience on a world-class racetrack in supercars, such as Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Porsches, and more!” Special rates will be arranged for the $99.00 special to drive two laps or to double your pleasure, you can drive for four laps.

After everyone is done and your legs are ready to go for more fun, Stretch Limo drives us to Uncle Julio's Mexican Restaurant. Unlimited Margaritas will be served with all you can eat. The restaurant will be closed to the public.

 

After dinner, Stretch Limo takes us to the Omni Hotel with enough time to get refreshed before leaving to go shopping at Maverick Fine Western Wear for Western Apparel where you will meet Fashion Consultants  Sharon Tara and Michael Jacobs. You will get dressed in your new clothes. Stretch will be waiting to take you to the Stockyards Championship Rodeo in Fort Worth. After an exhilarating day, you will return to the Omni leaving a generous tip to Stretch Limo’s Drivers. Get a good night sleep.

 

DAY 2: Eat breakfast; then be ready in the lobby by 8:00 a.m. sharp to leave for Japanese Gardens in Fort Worth. There you will meet Beth Atalay who will lead us in Yoga and Mediation. Dress appropriately. You must relax and do not dawdle as you sprawl over the gardens. There will be time to visit the gift shop. Stretch will be waiting by noon to drive to our next destination.

 

 

Onward we go to the Kimball Art Museum for those who want to view the arts and across the street to the Modern Art Museum. We will be met by Jeff Dowler, CRS who will lead us to a special art gallery. On the gigantic wall is a blank canvas with trays and carts of brushes, paint, and everything you need to paint a mural on the wall. Listen carefully to Jeff's instructions about what you can paint using the space, he assigns you to. No splatter paint on other AR members is tolerated. We all paint as we play nicely in colors of the rainbow with our brushes and tools. Remember. The Mural becomes a permanent addition to the Modern Art Museum in Fort Worth. Lunch is served in both museums. Evening is on your own and Trolleys will be available to travel in groups to your preferred destinations.

FALL IN LOVE WITH FORT WORTH

 

DAY 3

Be ready for a hooting hollering hell of a good time! Breakfast will be served in your individual rooms. Spa, message, and Beauty treatments will be available.

 

We will take a quick trip to the Fairgrounds where you will meet Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543 at his Antique Road Show. Antique cars will be in abundance. But save your energy! You do not want to miss what is next at the very famous Billy Bobs! Hooting & Hollering is MANDATORY!!! Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint-Idaho, Kat Palmiotti, Debe Maxwell, CRS , and Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, Phoenix Broker  will lead us in line-dancing and the Mechanical Bull!

 

But wait! There is more! Just before sunset Stretch will be ready and waiting for an experience of a lifetime! We will go on the  GREATEST GENERATION AIRCRAFT flying in the C-47 Southern Cross where our very own Pilot Endre Barath, Jr. will fly a WW 2 plane over the skies of Dallas Fort Worth. You will see the Dallas skylines below and know what it feels like if you were on a mission in the greatest country on earth!

 

 

Next, we are driven back to our hotel for a second Spa treatment. You will need to pack your bags and board the Anna Banana Yellow Jet  by 6:00 p.m. for a red-eye flight back home on Day 4. You will be free to mingle, sleep in, or meet up with as many RAINERS as you can before departure. Once you pass through the aircraft doors you will resume back to the person you were before your amazing trip to Dallas Fort Worth. Try to act your age - I dare you after this amazing adventure! Be sure to wave goodbye to me as I will be jumping down below waving proudly back at you! 

Yours Truly,
Patricia Feager

George Souto - Thank you for accepting your position of leadership at the Texas Motor Speedway. As a special way of saying thank you for your duties, you and Ed Silva will be issued special and authentic uniforms such as what professional drivers wear to set you apart from our group of drivers. And of course, you and Ed get to experience the track first to ensure proper training and safety. Plus, you keep your uniforms!

Kathy Streib - I thought you would like that role of being a security checker. When it comes to airline safety and security, compliance takes precedence. It appears as if there may be a suspicious passenger named Brian England who says: "I am not so sure about being frisked by Kathy Streib," so beware. You might want to beef up your security when he is about to board.

After all, after passing through the plane doors, and everyone is bucked up for safety, Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, Phoenix Broker flips the switch and you become 21 years old again! Of course, Dolores is welcome too! It is nice to know I added smiles to your faces! Come on over and join the Forever 21 group of AR members!

At age 21, I was in my first year of law school at the University of Virginia. That was a very special time after receiving my undergraduate degree in finance in three years by taking a heavy load and going to summer schools.

Roy Kelley - You started out young, still relative fresh out of High School and college, and not much older than most kids who don't know what they want to do with their lives! Congratulations on achieving your undergraduate degree three years prior to entering first year Law School! That was and still is an amazing accomplishment!

Law school provided a new world of education for me beginning at age 21. I shared a mail box with Ted Kennedy.  

Jul 08, 2022 06:20 AM
Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP

Roy Kelley - WOW! Sharing a mailbox with Ted Kennedy is more than I got. While traveling to Cape Cod in my earlier years I walked by Senator TK's car. I knew it was his because of his License Plate and there was a guard standing by his car. Did he ever speak to you?

I love this Patricia - nice that we cannot drink alcohol before we drive the speedway.

Margaritas and Mexican food - YUM! 

You have scheduled a wonderful Dallas Experience. I look forward to all that you have planned. I may not make it to the fairgrounds after my spa treatment. 

Endre as our pilot - oh my! 

Second spa treatment ... on the same day.  I won't make it home. I will be asleep in my room and miss the Banana Jet! 

Thank you for another incredible, creative read Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP  sounds like fun as to my pilot skills, need to add there not just turning the time back to age 21 but improving my eyesight too. The Air Force Academy would not take me because of my eyesight West Point was more tolerant:)Endre

Endre Barath, Jr. - Have you heard of SBK Advanced LASIK. It is the most advanced form of laser vision correction surgery. It treats common vision conditions such as farsightedness, nearsightedness, and astigmatism? Also, there is another option called SMILE (small incision lenticule extraction) eye surgery approved by the FDA that corrects even severe nearsightedness, again with a special laser making a tiny incision in the cornea, which allows a surgeon to remove the lenticule from the eye. Check with your Optomaligist! Don't forget - use your imagination!!! It wouldn't be the same without you. 

I sure hope you do not disappoint me!

Oh my goodness, I am late to the party but, hopefully not too late for the line-dancing, Patricia! Funny but, we attended a wedding last weekend and I was so surprised that the band didn't play one line-dance song all night! 

Your trip sounds AMAZING and I'm in for your DFW adventure when the jet gets to Charlotte!
