- 10 (and a Half) Tips for Road Trips.
In every station we meet people and leave others. But the story wouldn't be complete unless they were there. Some of them we don't see everyday, maybe we see once in a year but everytime we see them it's like they left the day before. Others became strangers with memories. And the rest are just smiles when you remember the past. One thing would make her feel alive, one thing would make her feel limitless, one thing would make her feel free, one thing would make her features at ease, one thing would make her mind's peace.
The sea, the wind, the sun and the breeze. Firestone wrote that only "after considerable effort we finally got started on our way toward Connellsville," the next town along the day's anticipated route. But the way south to Connellsville lay on an "unfinished road," meaning it was not paved or even sanded. Hard-packed dirt pocked with divots and freckled with sharp-edged rocks proved especially hard on one of the caravan's two heavy Packards.

Using his own penknife and their soldering iron, he poked holes in the broken bits of fan, stitched them together with thin wire, then soldered the wire in place. The punctured point on the radiator was also soldered tight. The ignition was switched on and the Packard ran perfectly. Ford's repair work took two hours; as soon as it was finished, he was anxious to be going.
Before the passengers could pile in and resume the trip, a delegation of Connellsville ladies approached. They requested that Ford and Edison pose for a photograph beside a pile of tires being donated to the Red Cross. Probably with Firestone doing most of the talking, the Vagabonds were able to demur without causing any offense. It was a relief to get back on the bumpy road.
