Brit Morgans just entering Los Angeles Harbor. 2 or 3 days late. Not sure why but looks better than it did a few days ago.

This is a good way to see the USA. It can be a bit exhausting, but it maximizes ones budget. I still have friends I met on MOA III in 2000. One of them is Lisa Holley of Sun Valley, Idaho who I am co hosting some sort of event. Lisa is doing the work, I am the Handsome Fellow greeting the Participants of MOA. However: I will be in Sun Valley, driving My +8 Itsa Bitsa. Sun Valley is about 12 Hours from Seattle. I have driven this route many times when Skiing in Sun Valley. I used to do this in 1 long day with two drivers. But this time I will be by Myself and on back roads so 2 days makes it a fun Run.

BTW: Sun Valley was built by a Railroad Company owned by Avril Harriman. He also developed Stow Mountain in Vermont. At one time I could take a train from Los Angeles to Sun Valley. I used to Fly from Seattle to Los Angeles and take the train. By the time I got to Sun Valley I knew all the Pretty Girls.

We are ready for the off tomorrow. The British cars are in the port waiting to be told when to pick up. Ship sustained damage going through the canal, apparently not that unusual in the new canal. I have instagram; britmog and will be posting when I can #morgansoveramerica, #moavii.

You boys certainly eat the miles up out there and it's a whole new mind set, I hadn't realised you were involved in this trip I hope you have a great time with the crowd.

You have me googling now with some of your references.

Day one tomorrow is a relatively short day 189 miles down the coast then inland to Brawely. Should get us nicely settled in.

Looks like they did not get their Morgans in time. Hopefully they are now on their way and will catch up.

Yes, the Brits collected their cars Thursday afternoon and motored on down to Brawley where they met up with the rest of us in the evening. Today (Day2) we all left Brawley and motored across the desert to Casa Grande making a stop in Yuma and Welton for lunch. Good long straight run at a constant 70 mph in the heat of the desert. Tomorrow is a short run to Tuscon where we will spend Sunday before heading off again.
