I got into town Saturday early afternoon.

Stopped in to see Justin at Your Museum - all was calm before the storm.

Your Board Of Directors was in meetings for the day so I headed over to see Mark Atkins ...

Ron had come up from Florida for the tour so he drove over in his 1912 Roadster Pick Up.

Mark - Ron - and Garry Houser look over the 1912 ...



We all went over to Clara's for great pizza ...



On the ride back - Mark's taxi decided to take a break about a half mile from home ...



It was towed back - Mark quickly pulled the carburetor & cleaned it - it was back running in short order ....

Mark helped repair a leather strap on Ron's T - earlier he had helped Garry replace his transmission bands - just another day in The Life ... :-)



I will be streaming live from Richmond starting today thru next Saturday - short video & images:

Miss Kim gives Mr. Yoder a bottle of gin at the start of the first tour day .... ( you actually believe he covers 300 miles a day on True Grit alone ? )



First tour stop - Carillon Historical Park

I have some rest time at a motel to resize images ....

This Gentleman ran out of gas with his best gal on the tour & boy howdee was he happy ..... nothing nicer than a quiet stretch of road and some shade to pass the time ....



Trouble is - he was on a Model T Tour ....

When you run out of gas - everyone & their mother is gonna stop and lend a hand - as you can see he was clearly de-lighted to be rescued by the the Good Samaritan ..... :-)

I needed assistance on Thursday .....

Truth be told - I never looked at the driving instructions that JK had so meticulously detailed in the book - I just followed the last Model T & crossed my fingers ..... hoping for the best.

John ( on the left ) volunteered to ride shotgun on the tour leg that featured several stops to meet the cars going on & off a scenic section of trail not normally open to motorized traffic.

John & Frank ( on the right ) graciously allowed me to take their picture at the start of the day ....

When queried - both said something about remaining anonymous & guilt by association or some such nonsense



Despite my best efforts to distract him - John proved himself to be an outstanding navigator
