Y’dstoti In Our Model A Ford Street Rod


Whether I’m the “Mapreader” or the “Nagivator” — you’ll get an idea of how we navigate in our 1930 Ford Model A. It is true that I don’t have room to hold an atlas! I use paper maps from AAA and fold, and re-fold, them along as we go so I can see what I need to see. Plus I have the Garmin on, but no destination entered so it just shows us where we are. This time we’re in eastern Oklahoma traveling on scenic Highway 10, and later in the Ouachita National Forest. Absolutely beautiful landscape! On the Oklahoma Mountain Pass Scenic Byway, the “Three Sticks National Forest Monument” represents land, wood, and water. There is an abundance of one of the things you don’t see on the interstate — shade!! Y’dstoti!

The Mapreader’s Navigation Tools
