Many, Many thanks to all who have contributed to Miss Vicky's success. Just passing $46,000 USD is very exciting. As for our beloved '31 Model A Ford Victoria, she's just arrived in Los Angeles after luxuriating for 10 weeks in transit on the high seas: Cabo, Ensenada, Panama (of all places) and on to LA. via container ship. I'll pick the 'ol gal up Wednesday morning to complete the journey northward back to Camano Island - thus completing the 2023 A2M odyssey. Haven't decided the route, which depends on weather and terrain. She's "wounded but capable" to make the journey but the last 996 miles will be yet another adventure for sure! Wish both of us luck!

Why I am fundraising for The Rotary Foundation
Our "Miss Vicky" will again be joining Rally the Globe for its 12,000 km (~7,600 mile) Alaska to Mexico Endurance Road Rally. Building on her success in the Peking to Paris rally of 2019, Miss Vicky, a 92 year old Model A Ford, will "go the distance" to prove that difficulty things are possible - even ridding the world of the polio virus. Join us for the event and help make history by contributing to the cause. Every penny raised goes directly to Rotary's PolioPlus program. A single penny per mile ($76.00 USD) is matched 2:1 by Gates Foundation. Help Rotary meet its $50 million dollar annual pledge to eliminate polio forever.
