Ronald Reagan Library... Pics..
#1
Visited the Ronal Reagan Library while I was at my folks house. It is 19 miles from there and let me tell you it is well worth the $12 admission fee.

Entrance with fountain

‘Nough said… (sucks, but you could go on the plane and see EVERYTHING but they do not allow pictures PERIOD…..) If you ever have the chance to go on this or any other
Air Force One….. It is something to behold…. The COMM center is a marvel even though it is over 20 years old.


Ironic that a B-17 was on final approach to Camarillo airport in this pic… (small speck in the top of the frame)

At the end is where Ronald Wilson Reagan is buried.. Not a great monument, but he didn't want anything grandious …. It really moves you to tears; Many people including us were just in awe and overcome with emotion..

Nope, Simi Valley... 5 miles north of the 101 or the same south from the 118 (Ronald Regean fwy)... Madera exit south, then right on Presidential pkwy.... And what you may or may have not seen on TV.... The view is breathtaking...

If that plane was not there when you went, how did they get it in the building?

Unlike the Library, the Ranch is not open to the public as far as I know.
To get there, turn right from 101 at San Marcos Pass Road (154) to up to the summit, and turn right at West Camino Cielo, go about a mile or so and it's on the left, kind of a regular looking place, with a red roof. You can google earth it using the coordinates 34 30 53N, 119 48 54 W, look for the red roof and the small pond.
If you get to Cold springs bridge, or the Cold springs Tavern on Stagecoach road, you have gone too far. You can get to both the Library and the Ranch on the Same day, there are excellent hiking trails above the Ranch with superb views, a few minutes soaking in the view will give you an appreciation of how Pres. Reagan loved the place.

Oh yes, you can explore every inch of the plane. Though ABSOLUTELY NO CAMERAS ALLOWED. And they have people throughout the plane to make sure of it.

Thanks for the bump and I was thinking as I looked at the pictures how much we could use him right now. I must have missed this the first time around.

Good time to drag this thread up. Gawd if we only had his leadership now. Enjoy those of you that missed this tread. God Bless Ronnie.

There's a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts..........
