It's a long way from Soldotna, Alaska‏

Greetings from Tanner, Alabama where Festus’s 1968 Mustang has lived for the past 10 years.  He bought it almost 15 years ago in Soldotna, Alaska.  Today it was finally retrieved from the farm yard.  We replaced all four tires and loaded it on the car trailer.  The right front tire locked up so it took longer than expected.  Thanks to Bill and his brother-in-law, there was extra brute force help for the task.  Here is a FB page of photos that show the retrieval.

Barron 55 Lunch Flight to Greenville.avi

Video by; Don Cook

Lunch flight to Greenville airport turned into more than we all planned for when the number two engine wouldn't turn over. Turned out the started died. Phil had a spare back home. John Gardner called Jack Fastnaught to see if he could fly the starter over to us. Sure, said Jack. Not only did Jack show up but Bob Gillman flew up in his plane in case the stater didn't work and we'd all need a ride back home. Tuned out the started worked just fine and we arrived back home safe and sound.
