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.

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!
