Rd. H2, go up to Co. Rd. I, which is maybe a mile, and then return to Co. Rd. H2, staying on the same side of Hwy. 10 so we'll pass and greet each other either coming or going along the way. ----- We have to stay on the grsssy pathway off of Hwy. 10's pavement, which will make the going difficult, but not impossible, for someone in a wheelchair or with limited mobility. ----- To get more info about and from Cindy Sheehan, go to the Gold Star Families for Peace website, at For up-to-date reports and on-site interviews from "Camp Casey" TX, go to Truthout at:
