You need a great automobile that starts fast, so you can make a quick get-a-way whenever the police show up and I have one!

Happy motoring,

Warren

Central NH's Model T Club, Dust off Tour, April 21, 2013
Sunday morning was sunny and cool when 15 members left Dunkin Donuts at 10am for a scenic trip to view some of the covered bridges in the area. The first stop was at the Contoocook RR Bridge. Built in 1889 this is the world's oldest surviving covered railroad bridge. Next stop was the Rowell Covered Bridge in Hopkinton. This is where the video was made.The bridge was built in 1853 by Horace Childs of Henniker. Built with what is called Burr type construction that is unusual in that solid timber arches are fitted end to end and bolted to the side timbers to form the basic design. Most arches in other designs are laminated. The last stop was in Henniker to view that covered bridge. This bridge was constructed in 1972 Milton Grafton and his son Arnold. Grafton and his son employed historic building techniques in the construction of the bridge including the use of a team of oxen to haul the framed trusses across the Contoocook River.

Happy motoring,

Warren
