I can make it to Brownsville next week but need at least $300 pledged in order to cover the costs. The limit will be at or under $400. The difference will be made up out of pocket or by limiting the costs of lodging, meals and amenities.





I will be taking my mother's "chauffeur driven limousine" (Greyhound $184.00) [highlight]plane[/highlight] almost all the way across Texas. That will get me to Brownsville 3 hours [highlight]the day[/highlight]before the hearing and I can sleep on the bus. I will get an early check-in reservation and clean up prior to the 1:30 hearing. I will return to the hotel and post comments and prepare for RC Radio after the hearing.





I don't trust my 18 year old S-10 to make it to Brownsville and gas costs would be around $400. I would also be worn out from the drive and need two nights in the hotel.





If I take an earlier Bus, I could arrive at 2:30 AM and need two nights at the Hotel.





Don't make any payments until the pledges have reached $250 and I begin making purchases.





If you wish to pledge check out the other posts or this top post where I will be totaling the pledges. I have a Paypal e-mail which Foggy can be use for contributions. Foggy has set it up so any Fogbow Contributions which come in while this fundraiser is in effect will go to the BoTG effort.





The total will be kept and updated here.


Pledged so far.


From the Boggle: $775.00





I added a day and will fly. Thanks all.

I've bunged in my $25 - if it's surplus or Tomtech can't do it, then it's for the Jack Ryan's gumbo pot.

Got paid today, so I'm sharing my bounteous riches. I think I can get you as far as Marshall.

Foggy can get me the funds. Flight and room is booked.I have an extra ticket for The Princess Bride on stage in Plano for $3:30 on Saturday. My mother changed her mind about attending.I believe that I have met my goal. Next week will be the first time in 20 years which I won't have another person along on a trip and will have the money to enjoy myself.

I wonder whether they allow cell phones, laptops, or tablet computers in the courtroom?If they do, I will call the courthouse Wednesday morning to confirm that there isn't a special rule set for Taitz day.

They are usually picky about those sorts of things, from my very limited experience and reading here. Lawyers can sometimes use techy things but the court tends to impose Ludditism in the gallery. I suggest legal pads and a couple of good pens just in case!
