Mt. Shasta White Steamer Centennial Tour
photo by Pat Farrell

Dear Friends,

From August 13th through August 18th, 18 Cars attended the "Oughty Ought
Ought Mt. Shasta White Centennial Tour".
Steady sunshine the whole 6 days was welcomed by all. Only two cars, that
were busy with other things, didn't get into our Wednesday group photo.

What did we like best?
*Seeing our steam friends again and touring with them.
*Touring over the Mountain pass to Etna. 140 miles on that day.
*Siphoning water out of the river and irrigation ditches.
*Touring on less traveled roads and over the "mountain goat trail" to

By the end of the steam tour we had put on a little over 400 miles on our
'14 Stanley. There were a few lost souls that managed to put on more miles
than us but they had fun doing it!
