I tried. But it's behind the paywall. At least for me. But then I'm a paying number.

I'd be happy to scan it in in jpeg form if people think that I'd have that right.

I guess technically I could put the pictures and story here because I wrote it.

Thanks for sharing your adventure with all of us Eric. You are a good writer too. Our kids live in Horace, not far from Fargo. They have been there over 20 years. Something must be pretty good about that area to survive that many winters there.

Nice read; you do write well. Post-Post script, the wandering throttle plate screw debacle, evidenced further divine providence.

Looks like you guys had a fun father/son adventure crossing the country. I also enjoyed the story as well as the pictures. Neat seeing pictures of your son in the desert and then in the snow.

I took my good camera as well as a drone and an extra phone, to always be sure I had the right tool on hand to get the shot!

Thanks for the info!

So the Corvair shares something with the Alfa Romeo? Keen.
