Sweet, thanks for figuring this out guys! Hate to be passing on bad trivia and the last time I mentioned it here no one challenged it. Glad this time I was better informed for next time.

Here is an actual graphic of the motorcade route courtesy of the DRT: http://drtlibrary.files.wordpress.co...de-mapwtmk.jpg

According to the brief accompanying the map are the facts that he landed at the airport but departed from Kelly.

Thanks! That's another great find. I saw him go by on Military drive on that day. I was in the sixth grade. I couldn't remember the direction he was going. But, west seems right. I saw something else that pointed to Roosevelt as part of the route. Makes sense as he appears to have been at International and Kelly.

Default Motorcade route Documentation ?

Excellent. Especially on the notation of one of the secret service people drinking beer
that very afternoon in 1963. Crazy.
Also entered was that the V.P. went back to Johnson to Johnson city that afternoon.
That was when, the conspiracy theorists claim, that LBJ went to plot the
assasination the very next day from a Murchison ranch house outside Dallas.
There are entire books on this topic.
Present during this plot wwere Clint Murchison,Cliff Richardson, George and Herman Brown and John Connally. and other oil millionaires and moguls.
Even J.E. Hoover would show there on occasion.
LBJ's mistress, also present , describes the events of that evening in an interview on videotape and a portion of it is on youtube. This interview is under "LBJ's mistress" on youtube. It was conducted out of doors complete with Live Oak trees in the background.
After this meeting, that very evening, this mistress Madeleine Duncan Brown, claims that Johnson said to her "I'll never have to worry about the Kennedys again after tomorrow."
Baloney.

I attended the JFK speech at Brooks AFB. My sister even shook his hand. I remember she didn't wash her hands for days after that. Being the brothers that we were, we said she had the "hand of death" after JFK was later killed.
