    Woo-hoo! Another cross country in a classic!

    Thanks for posting this-he took a great road trip! Hopefully with the change in importation laws we will see more 4 wheeled Morgans on the road.

    One of our local club members recently did a 10,000 mile trip in his Morgan participating in Morgans Over America. The tale begins on page 6:

    I think the 1,500 mile jaunt we do twice a year is a long outing, but these Morgan guys are truly in a class of their own.

    I was invited to go on that trip! I designed the badge for the Aussie-Kiwi contingent that came over for the trip (not the event's official badge, which I loved.) Unfortunately I didn't have an extra 10-20 grand burning a hole in my pocket to take the trip. But what an adventure that must have been, I'm so envious of those who attended. You can see a picture of the badge I did in my badge photos, on my profile page I think....

    Hmmm, my social calendar is only booked through the next 4 months, so June may be doable.

    (try to ignore the irony of me typing this from home on a Saturday night...)
