“As they crossed the start line, someone yelled, “Beetles rock. Paris or bust!” Ed rolled down his window and flashed the peace sign. He noticed that Marie-Claire did the same; already they were a team. And so they were moving, soon to turn west- a man and a woman strangers still, driving down the road that would end in Paris.”
The Long Road to Paris, page 55
Exactly two months from today WE will cross the start line for our world rally, following much the same route described in The Long Road to Paris. The only difference is Ed and I are certainly not strangers. Not to each other and not to antique car rallying. However, if our rally is anything like the one in the book, we will be strangers to those events.
Also today is the first day the website is public. It looks good and is user friendly other than finding the link to this blog. (It is at the bottom of the author’s page.) Kate Parker, a friend from Paris days, was the first one to contact us through the website at firstname.lastname@example.org
See you on the road to Paris,
E and J
