We're still working on planning for the Model T Tour in southern Kansas and Northern Oklahoma the weekend of October 3-5. I should be ready to start sending out full information and registration forms after I get back from Iola next week. Here's a little bit from the propaganda packet:
If you insist on paved roads, this tour is not for you. Some of the places on the tour are reached only by unpaved country roads. They’re good, graded roads, but unpaved. In fact, we planned this tour to avoid high speed modern highways. Don’t expect high speeds. This is Model T touring and much of it will be on the kind of roads that were major highways in 1914. It’s life in the slow lane. If you live in a place infested with heavy modern traffic, this is your chance to enjoy uncrowded Model T era motoring where you may go fifty miles before seeing another car. There are a few steep hills. They’re steep but short, down into a ravine and up out of it. These low pedal hills total less than half a mile. On Friday and Saturday especially, it would be wise to start the day with a full tank. It will be a long dry spell, over 100 miles, before you see another filling station.
I don't want to give the impression that it will all be country driving. We will be in town some, and one stretch of 55 mph state highway, almost ten miles, was unavoidable. But for well over half the tour, you can consider yourself driving in 1914.
Here are a few scenes from the route:
Steve; sorry that it is so far away !!!!!!
Looks very nice. I love that surrounding,we have been there.
Can Beau ride along?
I don't see why not.
