Sir Hudson needs to learn to travel light. Perhaps he had his wife with him ?

The Ohio State Patrol finds grass (and other things) hidden in tires, door panels, and gas tanks around here quite often put those who do it usually don't print it in the paper! :-)

Grass filed on the roadside when nothing else available was a regular habit in NZ also, just to get you home.

Even on todays sealed roads its 1700 k's.Darwin to Cloncurry.... that's a 1000 + miles ... God only knows what it was like in 1920, but there certainly would not have been any roadhouses to fuel up.. and it wouldn't have been exactly hospitable country if you break down. Amazing courage to undertake the journeys of those early automobile drivers in the outback.

In 2009 some of our Queensland Model T Club members reenacted the Hudson Fysh journey.

Here is a link to the Web Page.

I had a friend in Eastern Montana who used to shoot coyotes from his Super Cub, and once when he landed to pick up a coyote in a cactus patch both tires got punctured. He claimed he stuffed the tires with sagebrush and went back to hunting.

The puncture count reported here is not surprising when you remember that these cars were sharing the road with horses which were losing horseshoes and horseshoe nails regularly. Imagine how many nails were littering the roads back then.

Had a VW bug with no spare and got a flat miles from any where. Dad and I pulled the tire off and stuffed it with Scotch broom. :-) Saw dust I have heard of but we didn't have any.

my dad said in old days some would put cotton seed in their tires.

Fred,

Your Dad was correct. I removed the cotton seeds from the rear tire of one of our Fords around 1968.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

My Dad once told me that he stuffed the tires on his car with rags
