Ocean to Ocean in a T

The Centennial of the 1909 Ocean to Ocean Endurance Contest

Got an early 5:50 AM start this 13th day and arrived at Burlingame for an "on the road breakfast" at the Santa Fe Cafe around 7:30. The brick pavement center square was secured for our cars to park and local car clubs were on hand to welcome us. Then it was a seemingly quick 110 miles more to Abilene at 11:30. Since our rooms were not ready, we had lunch at the vintage Victorian style Kirby House an then toured the Eisenhower Museum & Library and the 108 year old Carousel. See my video of this.
Dinner was served "family style" at the Brookville hotel across from our hotel followed by exhibiting our cars for residents. Our longest day yet will be tomorrow, 260 miles, so early to bed and early to rise. I see CT is getting monsoon rains and here we are getting record heat, which I prefer to driving in a driving rain!
