Sierra Vista Tour

Post by AndyClary » Mon Feb 18, 2019 3:19 pm

False alarm, I didn't go. But I would love to hear from people who are there on tour.

I’m not on the tour either Wayne - but I wanted to go. A friend did go and this is what today looks like with a 21 degree chill factor. This is not his car. Snow last night and sleet frozen roads today. Brrrr. Said yesterday’s drive was 50% on 65 MPH highways.

Thank you all so much for the award, I feel very honored. It’s only a shame that my beloved Heather wasn’t here to share in the moment.
It’s a little cold here, this transplanted Southern Cal guy is finding the weather a little tough, yeah I know I’m a weeny.

Sierra Vista's elevation is over 4600', so snow in February doesn't surprise me. I want to get back to the San Pedro Valley, next time in a Model T, but at a warmer time of year.

Congratulations to Tony Bowker. It couldn't have gone to a greater or more worthy person. I have been hoping for many years that he would get the award! On most tours, if someone has trouble Tony is right there to help and usually you will see him under a car or under the hood. So now you know why he sometimes has dirty clothes or ruffled hair. That comes from fixing Model T's.
