Sarah Palin Talks Bus Tour, Says She Hasn't Moved to Arizona

Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- Many members of the media haven’t been able to get a question in to Sarah Palin during her “One Nation” tour, but Fox News host Greta Van Susteren managed to score more than 20 minutes with her.

Susteren climbed aboard Palin’s Constitution-decorated tour bus over Memorial Day weekend for a sit-down with the former Alaska governor that aired Tuesday.  Their interview covered a broad range of topics, from her tour to buying a house in Arizona.

When asked why she was going on a jaunt around the Northeast -- hitting key states like New Hampshire and Iowa -- if she doesn't know if she'll run for president in 2012, Palin offered this answer:

"It is about our charters of liberty and it’s reminding, especially the schoolchildren across America -- that’s why I have my dad on the bus too, as a school teacher -- I want the kids across America to realize what it is that built America, how important it is that we restore what is good and free and patriotic about America so we can prepare ourselves about the heady days ahead."

Palin said she has at least two good reasons to not divulge her tour’s itinerary in advance.

“We know where we’re going,” she said.  “There’s a couple of different reasons why we’re not going to broadcast it to the whole world.  One is security issues, but another is if the price of gas climbs much higher, right Todd [referring to her husband, Todd Palin, who’s traveling with her], we’re not going to be able to go too far.”

Palin then revealed that the gas tank of the charter bus is decorated with a “Drill, baby, drill” decal.

The former Alaska governor also confirmed the reports that she’s bought a house in Arizona but said she has not officially moved there.

“No, I haven’t moved from Alaska but Safari Investments has invested in property in Arizona,” she said, adding that “we are a part of” Safari Investments.  The reason for the purchase?  As Alaskans, Palin said she and the rest of her family “like to thaw out once in a while.”
