Today was my turn to lead our club on a tour. I decided to take a chance and drive the 21 coupe I have been working on. With only 10 miles running on it, not sure if it would sink on it's maiden voyage. Much stress on this tour as we got lost on the last tour I lead and unsure about the T. I lucked out and the tour went fine. did not get lost and the 21 made the drive without a problem.

It's always gratifying when your "new" T runs great and without issue

Jim, well done! We have had a few first drives that were spectacular successes, others complete opposites. Isn't it a great feeling when you get home from a tour with no problems? Even more so when you lead it. I always say it wouldn't be as much fun if you were absolutely sure of getting there. When you do, you have accomplished something. I think there's enough wood in a 21 coupe it would have taken longer than RMS Titanic to sink.

Jim, you should never admit to being lost, locationally challenged perhaps. I lead a group of friends on a tour of the Nevada desert years ago, one friend asked if we were lost at one point, and I told him that we were not really lost, he asked what really lost was. I told him as long as we were in the right state, we were not lost. A short time later, we came to a sign that said "entering Arizona" and at that point I had to admit that we might be a little lost.

Lost on an outing is when you are out of food, gas and water.

I like the one about the "Mountain Man" who stated,......."Lost? Why,....hell no! I've NEVER been lost! I once was powerful bewildered for a couple days,....but NEVER lost!"

One of my NASA test pilot friends used to say, "You're not actually lost until you run out of gas."
