Every year the wife and I load up one of our "T's" and head off for an adventurous one-car, one week tour. This year we headquartered out of Rhinelander Wisconsin. This area obviously was designed by God to accommodate us crazy model T people. Great roads, friendly people, perfect weather, and the outstanding company of the one I have been married to for 54 years. The many national tours we have enjoyed over the years with our many model T friends are times to remember and cherish, but if you want to experience the tour of a lifetime just load up the old T and your favorite companion and head into the wilderness. You're in for a real treat!! Keep on keepin on. Dewey
Hi Dewey - You should know that there's several Model T'ers in the Rhinelander. And, of course, there's the HODAG. You can see it in from of the Chamber of Commerce offices, I think.
The Rhinelander area is great for Model T'ing and I'm sure you'll have a good time.
Sounds like a great way to spend time with your wife. I’m hoping to get there one of these days – currently a week touring doesn’t fit the hectic schedule we seem to have.
One question -- the yellow light at the back that appears to be sitting on a large bucket like item – is the large item also helpful or would the yellow light be all that is needed?
Thanks for sharing your T-moment!

Washed and loaded up the T today for a one car tour around the Praha, Moravia and Moulton area.
Dewey, are all the stickers on your touring from previous tours? I like the rotating yellow light at the back. I have a slow-moving triangle.
A most Excellent looking car! You definitely have me thinking. I live in the Finger Lakes area of NY and am plotting such an adventure. Thanks for sharing!
To Hap and others who have posed questions I'll add a note here. The "large bucket like item" is a 5 gallon "sanitary supplier" bucket appropriately fitted with a fabricated toilet seat. When the lid is lifted a lifelike rubber snake rears his ugly head. It also houses the 12v battery for the flashing light. When not on tour, the bucket bracket slides out and a trailer hitch goes in. I then hook up to my 4' by 4' red white and Blue Freedom trailer, mount all 20 some American flags and off to the parade I go. It also has a red white and blue "freedom" bell mounted on the tounge with a rope to the drivers seat and off we go to the parade. No one, absolutely NO ONE has more fun than an old man with a model t!! Thanks for asking. Dewey
Thanks for the additional information! And for promoting our hobby so well!
