2001 Miles in a Model A Ford - June 14-25, 2001
From Colorado to Texas
by Jo Moss
The return trip started early on a cold June 23 with
Vag-A-Bon club members Al and Mary Allison joining the team for the
return trip. We made our first return stop in Garden City, Kansas.
We stopped at the state line between Kansas and Oklahoma for photos.
And stopped again at the Texas state line. Al and Mary Allison, Lyle,
Pam, and Cody Meek, Mark Moss, Rebecca Jordan and Max Phillips all back
on Texas soil. We spent the night in Childress, Texas, before our final
problems -- a cracked distributor cap, flat tire, faulty starter,
shaky shims, overheating and some loose accessories --
A challenging event such as the High Country Tour is a
test of vehicle and individual endurance of both hot Texas roads and the
mile-high plus elevations of Colorado’s High Country. The challenge is
only part of the "adventure" – the magic comes from the reactions of
people who marvel at the cars and the nature of the longer tours. It
also comes from the opportunity to enjoy a special hobby and to share
that enjoyment with people of similar interests.
