The T.O.B.B. Convoy has Begun!

- Advertisement -

Folks, there is a convoy of patriotic people heading down to the Eagle Pass, Texas, area. They call their convoy, “Take Our Border Back!” As I sit here putting these words to text, it is 10:15 pm, and the convoy that left Virginia Beach, Va., is still on the road (and has just now passed the Georgia welcome center from So. Carolina). I have been following the convoy online between some property repairs, and they have a good leader and organizer by the name and title of LTC Pete Chambers, (retired). This man is a decorated war hero, and his love of country also has not diminished after leaving his service. As I mentioned before, the group is planning their first stop in North Jacksonville, Fla. (the Pecan Park Road Loves Truck stop, to be exact). They are planning to be in the Eagle Pass area of South Texas by Feb. 3. I am getting a late start on this story because the actions taking place are still quite “fluid.”

You see, I know those roads (almost) like the back of my hand, and I foresee trouble in their immediate future. The truck stop they are planning on pulling into is small (as big truck stops are measured), and in the Pecan Park Road area, there are few amenities. I have been following two internet “streamers” who are embedded in the convoy (as they were for “The People’s Convoy” back in 2021. The man driving is named Joe (do not know his last name), and his YouTube channel name is “1st Responders Media.” His sidekick (for this adventure) is a guy named “Josh” (again, I don’t have a last name), and he goes by “Oreo Express” on both YouTube and Rumble.

This convoy heading down to the Texas border is not going there looking for trouble (as some “progressive” news channels will report). They will be holding massive “revival-styled” events and will be having some notable Christian speakers helping them out. BUT FIRST, they have to make their first stopping point successfully, so that is where I am trying to do my part from down here (at home). I have sent them messages on their “Fan reply” page, and up to about an hour ago, they did not pick up on what I was attempting to do. Finally, one of their web “moderators” messaged me back and asked me what I was trying to do. I explained to her that I was familiar with that area, and as I have assisted many big convoys (for F.E.M.A.) in the past, I could make their first “landing” a smooth one. It turns out that only one exit south of where they will try to squeeze into a cramped Truckstop, there is a large exit that dumps onto Airport Center Road (and traditionally, wherever there are large airports, there are a lot of facilities and amenities). Besides that, there is a Walmart supercenter less than a mile from the interstate interchange.

I had hoped to be a part of this convoy heading west, but a medical emergency in the family always takes priority. It is my hope and eventual plan to connect with their main navigator and be of some assistance (with important landmarks and stopping points), and just maybe, I can still contribute to yet another large happening that is in my purview.

This movement /Convoy is a big thing and is also a good thing. Unfortunately, an evil presence has already tried to dissuade them by slicing all four of the tires on one of the participants’ vans. So, I will ask you faithful (and faith-filled) readers to keep these people in your prayers tonight and all the way through their “run.” Thanks again, and may God richly bless you all (and those who endeavor for adventures in a patriotic way!
