Fueled by seed money from their son and grandson as a Christmas gift, Sharon & Tom made plans for a trip “out west”. They had a goal to drive their 89 yr. old Model A Ford to all the lower 48 states. They lacked only eight. Those states were probably the hardest to get to because of their mountainous terrains, Utah, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, California, Nevada, Arizona and New Mexico.
Still grieving from the sudden death of their daughter in May and feeling numb, will they be able to leave on the trip? Will the 89 ear old car be able to drive thousands of miles without breaking down? Will Sharon and Tom be able to make the trip? They were only 10 years younger than the car.
At the Four Corners. euphoria reigned!
Constantly throughout the trip they felt the protection of God. They were amazed and grateful for the help that befell them without asking.
What is the next challenge for Tom and Sharon? Driving Abigail for 300,000 miles.

Sharon and Tom are retired from their professional careers of nursing and floor coverings sales/management. When Sharon is not riding shot-gun for Tom, she enjoys visiting with her two therapy dogs, flower gardening and dollhouses. Tom says, ‘If you own a Model A, you always have something to do”. So that takes care of his spare time besides being number one handyman at home. They both hail from Wisconsin and now reside in northeastern Indiana with their two rough Collies, Francis and Patches and kitty, Montana.
