We will meet the truck hauling the Wall at the Hudson Bend Middle School at noon. There will be a brief stop for the kids, after which the procession will depart with LEO support bound for the Lake Travis High School football stadium.

Per Steve Von Roeder:
Also, please remind everyone participating in the caravan and/or entering onto school property that Texas State Law prohibits bringing firearms, knives, alcohol, tobacco and illegal substances onto public school property. This applies to both this site and the Lake Travis High School site at the other end of the caravan route.May 13, 2010 at 6:48 pm #2645
