Report November 9th & 10th.
Edit by Trudy.
Before we left this morning Dirk has to do some office work.
After the Model T and the Land Rover were started, we went to the Mc Donald’s in Paris, were we have an appointment with Sam Humphries from Lexington.
But unfortunately we missed him so we went to our next appointment with Jason Dotson, who owns a car shop in Paris; The Dotson Brothers.
We were warmly welcomed with coffee and nice home made apple pie.
We made some pictures in front of the shop which they printed and gave us.
They also gave a donation for SOS-children’s villages.
From here we continued our trip from Paris to London through the Daniel Boone Forrest with rather steep and long hills.
Because we missed them yesterday morning in Paris, Sam en Eleanor Humphries came to visit us in London to bring us a nice Kentucky licence plate and a home made wooden spark plug for Model T, to use as a decoration in the Christmas tree.
We had to do a long trip today; about 220 miles to Chattanooga, were we have an appointment tomorrow with Coker Tires, the company that sponsored the tires for our Model T during our world tour.
We arrived 5.30 PM in Chattanooga and the last 80 miles we drove on Highway 27.
The Model T has the wind in the back and in the overdrive Trudy spotted the speed at 60 miles p/h.
