Upstate NY Activists: There has been interest for RP signs...

As Dec. 7th approaches I was wondering if there was any interest from other supporters in the Upstate NY to "sign bomb" Interstae 87 from Albany to Canada? I was thinking about putting signs at the on/off ramps in my area. Let me know if there is any interest.

There has been interest for RP signs on I-87 and some other high traffic areas. If anybody else wants to help out feel free. Every bit counts.

FedEx delivered my signs yesterday. Looks like Christmas came a little early. Check them out.

Yes..

I did see those back when you did that, but not too long after something happened to them.. I was wondering if someone could have taken them. That's what I figured happened.

New York REALLY needs help!

Voter re-registration for the New York GOP primary closed in October, so we can't count on last minute "Blue Republican" or independent voters to put us over the top. This race will likely be down to Mitt Romney and Ron Paul by the time of the New York primary, so we will ESPECIALLY need every GOP vote we can get.

I think our sign bomb was

I think our sign bomb was compromised. I happened to travel through two of the exits today that I sign bombed, and all of the signs were gone. I thought maybe the towns cleaned them up, but then I also noticed that several of the advertising signs I saw that night were still there.

I think we have an infiltrator. :)

I got

family in Coxsackie and Catskill, which is just south of Albany. they are huge Ron Paul supporters

If you've done exits 11-19 on

If you've done exits 11-19 on 87......

I will be Signbombing exits 16-8 on 287 NYS Thruway
...it's the southern tier..

Also trying to make enough for I-84 from NY to Pa.

And Route 17 (future Rte 86) Orange/Ulster/Sullivan

Today is brochure day for me..I've purchased the earlier brochures and will be hitting the Woodbury Common Center, and Galleria Mall...
...Also: It's only me
I DON'T do facebook (may have to re-access that)
..But if.. Ron Paul DID IT ALONE....
........ALL THESE YEARS....
Then I guess this will be a piece of cake.

Be very safe. I found a few spots that just were not going to happen due to traffic. Don't do anything stupid to harm yourself. Good luck.

20 signs! Thats great.

Well then, we have 40 signs. If you can get up to exit 15 I can get exits 16, 17, 18 and 19. I'm going to start around 10:00 p.m. Tuesday so there is less chance of getting run over.

RPGF

I will have 20 signs by

I will have 20 signs by Tuesday afternoon. I suppose I can do 5 exits, beginning at the RT 67 exit and working my way north, on Tuesday evening. Does that work?

In St. Lawrence County, near Ogdensburg. I'm not a Facebook kinda guy, so I will have to use alternate means to confab with Northern NY peers.

Re: Guys

You told me to join the meetup.com group and I did. I started a discusion about this there. The result was no response. From the looks of it on the discussion board nothing is done on that site.

You asked me to send an e-mail. I sent an e-mail and again, no response.

If your group is not interested in putting Ron Paul lawn signs at the on/off ramps that is OK. I wasn't planning anything gaudy or outrageous. I'm just putting the white "Restore America Now" official campaign signs up. I think those signs are little more formal than the "R3evolution" ones.

Also,for the next 3 weeks vehicle traffic in Queensbury/Glens Falls is extremely high due to the holliday shopping season. People are coming down from the rural areas in droves. So, in addition to the Northway signs I am putting some on the way to both Wal-Marts in Queensbury, one near Lowes and near other high volume traffic areas.

As far as phone banking in Albany on Wednesday's, that does not work for me. I have to watch my kids.

RPGF

I should have 20 signs by the

I should have 20 signs by the end of the work day on Tuesday, provided they have the materials in stock. This print shop is closed today but I contacted a gal that works there via facebook.

I won't be able to promise anything until Monday morning, unless someone on here has a bunch of signs they are willing to sell to me.

The best area for me to work would be from Balston Spa south til I run out of signs.

I was planning on putting my signs out the night of December, 6th. That way the'll be ready for December, 7th.

RPGF

I will find out tomorrow when

I will find out tomorrow when my sign guy can have some ready for me.

I never did this before. What do you do, zip tie them to the railing on the overpass? I suppose I can do 3 or 4 or 5 of them, depends on how much the sign guy wants for making them. If they're cheap enough, I can do 20 or 30, what the heck. :)

I don't figure I have time to get them from the campaign.

I don't know why I had it in

I don't know why I had it in my head that you wanted to do the overpasses... lol

I guess doing the ramps makes it a bit easier. Just stick em in the dirt.

Signs

That white plastic should be fine. I got my signs from ronpaul2012.com
What exits can you do?

RPGF

It depends on when this is

It depends on when this is happening.

It is unfortunate that I found your post here after your meetup.

I'm in Glenville. That's close enough I guess. :)

I just requested membership in facebook group, so I can stay informed. I can help out some, and I should be able to get some nice signs made up.

What would be the best material and size for something like this? Would that white corrugated plastic work?

So, how was..

The meeting? How did it go?

I joined the "meetup" group. Not sure what to think yet.

Anybody helping with the sign bomb?

I was just up there at Thanksgiving

Exit 26, Chestertown - I have family up there. They are politically apathetic but I will ask them to spread the word to their friends and coworkers and maybe we can get you some company on the 7th. Even just a few signs on those exits will go a long way - thanks so much!
