Tom ~ scumdog and Christine have made it back home again safely. Here is what he had to say and a pic of his odometer when he started this 3,000 mile trip!

"Hi Ray, Finally home, the start of the international adventure had the odometer reading of 25585.6 and you can see for yourself the final reading in the photo!
Now for some info that may shock those of a delicate nature:
When I got my rebuilt carb back I bolted it on, hooked up the fuel line, choke tube and throttle linkages - that's it. I didn't adjust anything other than the idle speed.
And when I got the new vacuum can for my distributor I bolted it on, put the distributor back in the motor, hooked up the vacuum line and after fitting the carb as per above I fired up the motor.
I had marked where the distributor had been before removing it and set it to that mark. I let the motor warm up a bit, did a quick road test and retarded the timing a 'couple' of degrees as it would 'pink' under hard acceleration. And that was the total of my 'tuning' before the Wheelers arrived and we set off for the Beach Hop!! And the car ran great. More later if anybody is interested. Regards, Tom."

Here is that pic of his odometer.

Tom ~ scumdog, sent me another note and pic of his pretty '66 Flairbird. Here is what he had to say.

"Hi, Thought I'd post this photo of our '66 Town Landau at Kaka Point, our nearest beach town after its first wash since getting home from the Beach Hop. As it's just on winter here it was too cold to go into the sea so we had some chowder at the cafe behind the 'bird. Just a nice cruise on a fine day. Love from us in The Land of the Long White Cloud. Tom"

Here is that pic!

Today is Memorial Day, a day set aside to remember our fallen. It's a reminder that freedom comes at a very high cost. The result of their sacrifice is the very reason we enjoy many countless forms of liberty.

This site is a great example. The Internet is available to everyone here and in many countries around the world. Without it, many of Squarebird.org's international friendships would not be.

I'm counting my blessings, here. I heard a newsman on TV who said, wishing any one a 'happy Memorial Day' is wrong and politically incorrect and that this is a solemn and reverent observance, not a 'happy' occasion. I agree BUT I also know that our brave soldiers paid the ultimate price so we can be free to enjoy this day that God has made.

May God's peace and love surround all my international Squarebird brothers and sisters. Allow them to build even more friendships on this site, in the free and giving spirit that Alexander founded for us. - Dave
