2nd day of Amos

Wham!! ShaZaamm!!



Two hours- 50+ miles)DRIVE this afternoon in my 1969, red, Triumph TR6.

Charging down the highway at 70 mph, a red Trooper SUV
starts honking and waving and thumbs up at me.

Side by side doing 70 mph, I grab a BCF card and manage to
get it into the passenger's hand. A few miles later, I reach
over and grab his busines card at 70 mph.

My car at 70 mph is not all that quite so I THINK he
was telling me he owns an old British car.

I'll have to phone call him and find out.

So far, I have enjoyed over 150 miles and many nice hours
spent simply driving Amos. Not looking for breakdown, just
enjoying where I live.

It's a good thing that Dale wasn't around when the wagon trains were going across the wilderness. Can you imagine the amount of wooden spares on one of those trips????

Yupper, I'd carry lots of spares.

Here's a photo of my great, great grand pappy's
spare parts rig.

So, 8 of those mules are spares in case the other 8 die?

Only for Borax.

I think that they were taking that boat on the Salt Flats from the looks of the painting.

Giddy-up................
