AAA PRESENTS CLINTON WITH TRIPTIK ROUTING FOR INAUGURAL BUS TRIP

 WASHINGTON, Jan. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- President-elect Bill Clinton received a specially prepared Triptik routing from the American Automobile Association today, describing the historic bus journey the president- and vice president-elect will make from Charlottesville, Va. to Washington, D.C.
 AAA's commemorative routing features a cover embossed with the inaugural seal, a frontispiece illustrating sites along the route, six vignettes describing the inaugural tour and three detailed strip maps.
 "The inaugural bus tour will afford the president-elect a view that is uniquely American," said AAA President Paul R. Verkuil. "He will travel roads rich in the history of colonial America, the founding of the republic and the Civil War, while seeing the innovative and vibrant landscape of modern, changing America."
 The president-elect's itinerary was prepared by Kellie D. Walker, a AAA member service counselor in the Little Rock, Ark. office of the AAA- Arkansas Auto Club. The Clintons are AAA members.
 The 121-mile trip begins with a visit to Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson, third president of the United States. Situated near historic Charlottesville, Va., Monticello sits among the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Charlottesville is home to the University of Virginia, which also features Jefferson's architectural style.
 Traveling to Culpeper, Va., along U.S. Route 29, the inaugural tour visits the congregation of Culpeper Baptist Church, established in 1794. Young George Washington surveyed the town's landscape in 1749. The town's Commomwealth Park is an internationally recognized equestrian facility.
 Along the route to Washington, D.C., is Warrenton, a small Virginia town wrapped in American history. Presidents, generals and other famous political and military leaders have visited or lived in the town since it began as a trading post in the early 1760s. The town's Old Court House is where distinguished Supreme Court Justice John Marshall pleaded many of his cases. Many Civil War skirmishes were fought nearby.
 Leaving Route 29 at Gainesville, Va., the bus tour proceeds to Arlington, Va., via Interstate 66. across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C., Arlington is home to the Pentagon, as well as Arlington National Cemetery.
 The tour concludes at the Lincoln Memorial. "An American Reunion" celebration is planned on The Mall, a grassy park that extends to the Capitol grounds.
 AAA is a not-for-profit federation of 139 motor clubs with more than 1,000 offices providing 34 million members in the United States and Canada with travel, insurance, financial and auto-related services.
