Profile Information

This site is primarily for drivers, copilots, and support personnel for the ocean to ocean run. Friends do not need to be members in order to view content. Please indicate year and model car and relative association to this event.
I will be driving my red 1912 Touring and navigated ( and hopefully, sometimes driven ) by my wife, Barbara. She was disappointed in missing out accompanying me in 2009 and has anticipated this journey from its initial concept. She is a very enthusiastic Model-T participant and a proven reliable direction-following navigator. Following along our route will be my brother Ray and his wife, Linda, hauling my closed trailer for the trip home. It will afford us all the opportunity to see the country in both directions.

The 6th O-2-O Reunion Tour was GREAT!

Thanks to you Dom, your tour will be most memorable for many reasons. You made it both fun and interesting in the driving tours and seeing the sights in and around Chattanooga. I had no idea that Coker Tire and Honest Charlie's were both located in Chattanooga. It was also nice to meet your daughter and son-in-law.
Once again, many thanks for your efforts and we look forward to our next meeting. Will keep you posted on next year's tour in New York.

Shawmut Descendant's names??

Bob and I are getting many requests to do a program of our O-2-O trip and am putting a slide and video show of about an hours worth of video and pictures. I have a picture of the closing banquet with the Scotts as well as the descendants of the Shawmut driver, but don't seem to have their names. Anyone out there remember. It was a woman and her daughter and son. Believe their surname started with a "P". They ceremoniously shook hands at the banquet. Getting anxious to see some at Hershey in a… Continue

Days 26 & 27 --We Made IT!!

DAY 26: Didn't do a blog post for day 26 because it was a very busy evening arriving at the Snoqualmie Summit Lodge. This is at the peak elevation of the Snoqualmie Pass (3900') and the climb was not too difficult. After dinner we were treated to live music by a 20 piece band which featured early 1900s music like Scott Joplin and old time favorite songs which I enjoy. The first one I recognized was " The Connecticut 2nd Regiment Footguard's March" which was Bob Steele's theme song. I thought I… Continue
