At the camp site in Oceano we got several donations for SOS children’s villages.
Anthony, a blind boy of 8 years old, visited us to “feel” the Model T.
He has a very rare eye illness and they also do fundraising for research of that illness.

We leave the camp site and drive along the beautiful Highway 1.
Sometimes very steep but every time we reach the top again.
During our trip this day we meet a German couple. He is a teacher on a technical school and he and his students are working on an engine of a Model T.
He loves the sound of the running engine.
At the end of the day we look for a camp site.
We find one, called the Plaskett Creek, and we are invited by the Plaskett family to stay at their place.
The next day, 21 June, we continue our trip on Hwy 1.
When we arrived at Castroville we decided not to go to San Francisco, because otherwise we will be back in Las Vegas on time to pick up our new support crew.
So we leave Hwy 1 here and go to the east.
We see a lot of fields with curled kale.
Between 2 lakes in the San Luis Reserve we find a place to make our camp.
Tonight it is full moon.
Today, 22 June, we are exactly one year on the road with our world tour.
We have almost driven 20,000 miles in 200 days.
Sunday 23 June we wake up early because we want to go to Las Vegas today and that is about 300 miles.
We have to pass two mountain passes and at 3.30 PM we arrive at the house of Frank and Suk Hi Ross in Las Vegas, were we are invited to have a very nice dinner.
It is very special to have good friends all over the world.
