Las Vegas to Kanab, UT, 234 miles. First thing this morning, a parking lot seminar on John Jorgensen’s car. Snatched that broken crank pulley off and put the new one on in half an hour. But now we have an interesting new development. Joe Davis’s modern van ate the rack and pinion steering, oil leaking out badly, so Joe went off searching for a Chrysler dealer. Can you believe it, the modern went in for help? Anyway, he and Sid spent an extra day in Vegas. We considered putting the van on the trouble trailer and posing a Model A in front of it, wouldn’t that be a kick?
After the Valley of Fire, we concentrated on burning up the pavement to Kanab. It was warm, some of us flirted with vapor lock, but nothing more than a burp now and then on the hills. We took a little side drive through Hildale/Colorado City, sadly, the ice cream store is gone. We got in about 5:00 after losing an hour due to time change. We are staying at the Parry Lodge, an old time motel from the 30’s that has been used as the headquarters for a lot of movies. Pat and I are staying in the Tyrone Power room.
I just realized, no roadside seminars today, Yahoo!!!!!! Joe and Sid arrived at 9:00PM. Off to Bryce on Saturday. Less miles, more red rocks, stay tuned.
