    I attended the Keystone XL hearing at the State Capitol on July 23, 2012 where I heard and saw Julia Crawford testify about her fight with TransCanada trying to build their foreign pipeline across her 650 acre ranch. I would like to be able to ride to Paris, TX from Austin, TX on August 10 to witness her trial at the courthouse. Would someone like to have me for a rider on that day? Please let me know if you can.
    Thank You,

    Steve Royal
