Hi Doug. As far as I know, Ian and Peter departed from Seattle on 8/9 September. I have no way of contacting them and presume they are on their way across the USA to Florida. They have flights back to the UK for end of October. Dolph Cramer may be in touch with them? I am sorry I cannot be more helpful. With good wishes for Scotts recovery (could it be a mystery virus?) and for your continued journey.
Wish I was with you guys hope all is well. Look foreward to seeing you in Virginia some time. Please keep your blogs and photo's coming we are watching it closely. Don't forget Barry lives in Anchorage. Best to you, Jon

Doug; I just left a meeting last night where I donated a few old club jackets to the Long Island Motor touring Club. An old friend met us there ( My wife Valerie and I ), he mentioned you in our conversation. Harold sauter, It was the first time I had seen him in more than 12 years. i was a member of the LIMTC back more than 20 years ago and was at one time the treasurer. One of my closest friends from back then until his passing was Frank Stepanek, his picture still hangs in my workshop. Frank taught me much about the model T and was often at my house helping me sort out a problem. I'm a retired Suffolk Police sergeant and had trouble making meetings after a few years because I was working nights. I sold my Tudor sedan about 7 years ago after it sat idel in a shed for 5 years. I lost interest after Frank had passed away. Then an odd thing happened, I became friends with the man who bought my model t and he shipped it to England. My wife and I visited this new friend in England after selling the car and we have gone back each year since. He has the T in his collection of cars that go back to his 1902 olds, 1904 caddy, 1910 Hupmobile, several brass T's, several bently's and early Rolls etc. He holds a car rally every year which sometimes starts in France. Then in early September each year he and his mother hold a 'Music' night at his Manor house to raise money for the local church. Ten on the last day he holds a car show in his sheep fields where more than 200 cars are displayed. last year more tha 50 model T's came to the show, most right hand drive. i look forward to meeting you on the trip. My friend from england, Larry Riches will be on the run with me with his 1923 Touring. I wonder if my old friend Frank is watching.
Hi Doug. Yes I am looking forward to this trip. My copilot (my brother) is a G.M. man but we will get him into shape before the trip. As I just got registered for this trip since January, as some spaces became available, I am playing catch up with paper work, car checking over etc. I think I work better under pressure.
