Ocean to Ocean in a T

The Centennial of the 1909 Ocean to Ocean Endurance Contest

Bob and I were the 2nd car to arrive at our hotel in Olathe, the result of making our earliest departure, 6:03 AM from Hannibal, MO. The highlight of our day's trip was probably the ferry across the Missouri River.
We arrived at 3:10 with temps about 95 and we checked in and relaxed in the pool and hot spa for awhile before getting out to the parking lot to see the later arrivals. After dinner, we retired for the night in anticipation of a "work on the car day" early tomorrow, before the heat got too bad.
I tackled our generator which is putting out enough current for 4 cars, and Bob saw to inspecting critical items for the next half of our trip, having come 1840 miles so far.
Tonight we will eat at a nearby "Outback Steak House" (Bob's favorite) and retire early to prepare for even earlier start, to beat the heat, of only 164 miles!
