Riders:

The Vietnam War Museum provides a unique understanding of Warfare in Vietnam, every Veteran should experience this. The Museum provides an interesting display of artifacts used by all branches of the military during the Vietnam War. Truly, the Museum has something for everyone, no matter what branch of the service one served in.

Once we get there, there will be a guide (Volunteer) that will take us around and show us each display and answer any questions we may have. Remember, these guys are volunteers, they may have a ton of knowledge in one area and only surface knowledge in others. With the Vietnam Veterans we have riding with us and my own sense of historical military knowledge, we should be able to provide an in depth understanding of the Vietnam War.

The museum is laid out like a Firebase, complete with sandbagged bunkers, a fence, Armor, vehicles, aircraft and there is even a homemade bar in the corner of the property reminiscent of the type that would have been created on a Firebase in the middle of nowhere.

The ride is to go directly to the Museum, so our route will include some miles on I-4 up to Celebration Florida. From there we will take backroads up to the Museum. Route will be:
