A race to be the first automobile to make it to Tahoe via Donner Summit after the snows (kinda) melt

Dale,

Thank you for posting that!

For some reason when the link is posted it leaves off everything after the apostrophe.

But copying all of it (be sure the sCrossing1911.jpg is at that end) works.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

From the 1911 information:
"...the party carries a portable telephone outfit..."

Interesting.

Thanks for sharing, Dale.

What a beating that poor little T got! The local Jeep club holds an annual closed course event for Jeep owners to try and overcome many obstacles. That course is as severe as the terrain in these photo's. 4wd and skid plates don't ensure a successful ride around the course even with heavily modified modern vehicles. I wonder what all the "helpers" used to get around so they could lift and pull the T along?
