Well, it is Idaho. These guys escaped from home and started galloping when we came up behind them. They went a few miles before leaving the road.

Had a wonderful time in Yellowstone and the pre-4th of July traffic was tolerable. 45 mph is nice in a T or something bigger. The Bus works good for family.

Hope you all are having as great a summer as I am.

Rich

Richard,

Judging by those mashed bugs on your windshield, you must be able to get going at a fairly fast clip. Bugs land on my windshield, walk to the edge and fly away. :-) Jim Patrick

PS. Beautiful country through which to drive a T.

Here's a thread where Rich showed us some pictures of his 1923 White bus and what he started with in 1966.. http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/257047/279365.html?1333594494

Thanks Roger. I was searching for those threads but couldn't find them. I always loved driving the T's in the Park but the bus holds more people and it lived there for many years. Sadly, it and I are both getting older and it may not see too many more trips there. A T is easier to crank and steer.

Jim, I'm not sure if the bugs are on the inside or the outside of the windshield. Sometimes they try to pass and crash.

Rich

Holy moly, the size of those tires ... How's the steering?

Steering by Armstrong as they say. The rims are 24" so a 36 x 6, 38 x 7 or 40 x 8 tire fits. After driving all day I'm ready for a shoulder rub.

That's Old Faithful Inn in the back, behind the Bus. We have put on some local tours in Yellowstone over the last 40 years but it is more expensive and more crowded in the Park now. Caravaning is not a good idea anymore but single cars can do OK if it is not a busy weekend. The Park employees celebrate Christmas on August 25th with each other and we have put on a Christmas in Yellowstone Tour at that time twice. Lots of fun.
Those were the days.

Rich
