Ocean to Ocean in a T

The Centennial of the 1909 Ocean to Ocean Endurance Contest

Our "rest" day today has been very relaxing - and we made good use of our time.
After a good breakfast at the hotel, we drove to Spradley/Barr, the Ford dealer in Fort Collins
who opened their shop for us to have oil changes, etc. Gary mounted the new spare tire on our rim
and was also able to grease the front and rear wheel bearings, and check the differential.
The dealer also gave us BBQ hamburgers and brats, chips and drinks for lunch, which was another wonderful treat for us and so unexpected. They certainly have been very gracious to us.
There were a goodly number of people who came out to look at our Model T's, which were on display.

This afternoon Gary took a long, cool sleep in our air conditioned Marriott Hotel room.
The sun has been as hot as ever with very few clouds in the sky - until - we were alerted by the clap
of thunder - it was another of the wonderful thunder storms that pop up out of nowhere, so we had to
run out and put the cover on the car!

We are now going to take a walk to a restaurant for dinner. Life is so amazingly good!

I'm happy you made it. Thanks for stopping in Fort Collins and Our dealership. Spradley Barr Ford I think our customers and employee's enjoyed it. I am happy The McLearens chose to get a New 2009 Ford F-250 King Ranch to go the rest of the trip with the Ford Model T's. All the best to all of you T'ers. Paul Phillips
