Mishawaka IN

Another nice drive through Michigan and into Indiana.  But I must say that Michigan has some of the worst roads I’ve ever been on.  We hit some really bad pot holes along the way in lots of different towns.  Traveling over train tracks is also challenging and bumpy.  We passed the Michigan Speedway along the route.  And in one town met a fellow O2O traveler from 10 years ago.  Arrived at our hotel early in the afternoon and took the opportunity to do our first laundry.  When it was my turn I…

Dearborn Day 2

 Drove all around Detroit to see Ford sites like the Highland Park factory and the old Sales Department building.  Just viewed them from the outside since the factory building is mainly storage now and the sales building is run down and boarded up.  Went to the Piquette factory where the Model T was born.  Our car wasn’t built there - it was built at the Highland Park factory.  Piquette has many Model T’s from all years and even Ford cars that came before the Model T.  Went to the cemetery…

Dearborn

Arrived in Dearborn yesterday after driving all day in intermittent rain.  We didn’t get wet as long as we kept moving and our stuff in the back seat stayed dry under an old shower curtain.  The car was a mess when we got here and required some TLC once we checked into our hotel.  Today was sunny and warm and polishing brass was the first order of business for the day.  Spent the day at Greenfield Village at the Henry Ford.  Their garage did an oil change for us.  We provided the oil and…

Getting close Breaking the Silence

I was wondering if we can get some information on:

  What parts we will have so we don't have duplication, if we are still taking parts in the trailer?

  What points of interest we may be stopping at?

  How many cars will be on the adventure?

  And any details we can share!

Reference: 2019 Ocean to Ocean Cross Country Tour

When you make your motel reservations, be aware that Day 10 with the stopover in Hannibal MO, is shown on the list as 24 June. This is incorrect! It is Tuesday, but the date is 25 June. Secondly, on Day 24 stopover at Pendleton ORE, the date is 9 July, not 7 July as it could be misread. Further advice is for Fort Morgan COLO. Super 8 Motel still has rooms but others are filling up fast. Watch out for some establishments taking payment with your booking, a year in advance!!

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.

I want to thank you for all the hard work and time you spent making the tour such a wonderful success.…
