Mastering the Long Cut

I’m parked on the grass alongside Highway 59 just outside Montevideo, Minn. I’ve positioned my car in front of a bright green sign announcing “Lac qui Parle County.” As I set up the tripod and camera, a passing Ford pulls over and stops. The driver rolls down his window and asks if I’m having trouble…

Motoring Challenge Reflections

In Oklahoma I found myself on a turnpike between nowhere and somewhere. The crescent moon I had been chasing for the last few hours was giving way to one of those perfect pastel sunrises.

Favorite Photos of the 2013 Motoring Challenge

Adventure of Two Lifetimes

Phil and I like to sit back and marvel about what an extraordinary summer we had. In some respects it was unbelievable. We drove approximately 11,500 miles. It has been a blast, honestly we are both ready to do it again taking more time and more money! The Moss Motoring Challenge? Well, all we can…

Favorite Pastimes

I had a Moss catalog with me in the Middle East and shipped parts to my parents’ house. Returning home, just days after my Desert Storm tour ended with the Army, I tore my car down to its chassis, and the long task of rebuilding and replacing began. I would say the MGA did not experience…
