We're thinkin' that since this crowd made it to the top of Mt. Baker Highway "back in the day"...



...when the roads weren't even paved...



...that it will be a piece of cake now-a-days.





Here's the route...







A short 100 miles round trip, but with some of the most scenic country in North America. Stops including a BYO picnic lunch at a National Forest Campground along the Nooksack River high in the North Cascades just before the final climb to the top.

Join us. Bragging rights awarded to all participants.

The good news is that if something breaks, you'll have plenty of experienced "help" to make repairs!

Might have to put in for the day off for this one.......

Where did you guys find all of these Mt. Baker pictures from back in the day? They're great!

Does the Whatcom County museum do prints like MOHAI does? One of these would look nice in my house!

Ian,
Yes...the Whatcom Museum. A fantastic resource for the history of our area. They will do prints. I found 20 pictures of Model A's on the Mt Baker highway. There are others of A's on Chuckanut Drive. One beautiful one of a late Cabriolet.

Ok Barners, I am going to have to ask you guys how many of you in Ford Barn Land are interested in participating? If you can tell me the name of your MAFCA Chapter or MARC Region and how many in your tour party? Trying to give the Donut Guy some warning so he does not fall over. Information from you will help make sure you and your party won't miss out on Coffee and Donuts...so it's a matter of life and death here If by chance there is more of you then Coffee and Donuts, we'll just cut the Donuts in fourths and get the garden hose and water down the Coffee Benny

me in person about the Can-Am, I'll be wondering around down there. Benny

It's going to be touch and go if Artists Point will be open in time for the ascent.

This from WSDOT...

Crews took an exploratory trip to Artist point on Wednesday, April 13 and found more than 500 inches of snow in most areas of the closed road.


In 2002 the road opened August 9th. In 2011 it didn't open at all.

Well 20 will be open by late August, maybe we should head for Hart's Pass. =)

Maybe we should plan a dry-run around the Mt. Loop Highway whenever the snow is clear there.

We are getting closer! If you are going please call the contact number on our website
(www.moonona.org)..If you know somebody who is going please tell them to call our
phone number on our website. Also if you're going please get a forestry pass before the
event. US Forestry HQ will be on the way but the more people who have them the better.
Thanks, Benny

Thanks, Benny
The US National Park Service Senior Pass is currently $10 for life!...

It provides access to more than 2,000 recreation sites managed by six federal agencies:

National Park Service
US Fish & Wildlife Service
Bureau of Land Management
Bureau of Reclamation
US Forest Service (Including parking at our destination...Artists Point)
US Army Corps of Engineers

Also, you will get free admission for up to 3 other adults in your car and any kids under 16 plus discounts on camping, guided tours, etc.

It's quite a bargain!

However, the cost changes on August 28th from $10 to $80. This is one change in a package of policy changes to defund of our parks that was recently implemented.

Get yours now...even if you are unable to accompany us on the Reliability Run up Mt. Baker.

A Senior Pass can be purchased on line or through the mail here...

https://store.usgs.gov/senior-pass

...or at any of the above field offices including the USFS office in Glacier on the way to Artists Point.

If you are not 62 or older or don't ever intend to visit a federal park or site again, a day pass to visit Artists Point is $5 and can be purchased on line here...

At least not Washington State state parks. We have an annual pass for that purpose. $30/year. Other states may have similar.

http://discoverpass.wa.gov/31/About-the-Pass

A day pass is $10 so if you go to more than 3 of the listed places the pass is good for...you win. Between the parks, trail heads, boat launches, etc., mine pays for itself many times over.

We will probably leave the start in groups from 9:30-10:15 so we don't tie up the highway too badly. should take about 1.5 hours to Artists Point if no stops are made on the way. 2 hours if a stop at the Forest Service is required.

If you turned right around and went back down, you could be back to the starting point in another 1.5 hours. you had a leisurely picnic lunch at the top, then made some stops on the way down (like at Nooksack Falls or some of the view points), add another 1.5 hours.

Plus I don't know how long the snow ball fight is going to last between Dick and I.It might take a while, I owe him a few Benny

Ok, that would give me plenty of time to drive down hwy 9 and then on home from woodinville. I don't want to drive 350 miles in one day, nor spend two nites in a motel. The evergreen club found a place in Bellingham for $74, a nite, so I think I'll go up with them on tues, but just drive home on wed after the tour. I think some are thinking of driving the whole thing all on wed. Now, I just need to convince the wife!

I completely agree, Benny. It might take a while for you to hit me with a snowball.

BTW, I was up to Artists Point again today. I was the sag wagon for my daughter's annual bike ride to Artists Point. The snow is melting fast.

I do not. I'm thinking maybe 6?..or there could be more? Canadians are sneaky and they maybe just down playing just to get a jump on us...but jokes on them they might not get a doughnut..Wow 15 from Seattle..is that Evergreens and Gerties combined? B

Also with it being 150 years of Canada..you think Canadians would be more competitive? Maybe if I told them Anne Murray was going to be at the top..handing out Tim Hortons..we'd get more?

That's not even 2 tanks of fuel. Heck, we've driven 600 miles in a day TOWING.

41 model A Fords made it up to Artist Point on Mt. Baker. There were a few cars that met us at the start but they did not go for ascent. As far as I know, no one had any mechanical difficulties.

An A+ day on the mountain!

I have to admit I was somewhat of a doubter when Benny told us there would be 40 Model As from 2 states and 2 countries at our A-scent of Mt Baker, but when we came around the corner on Mt Baker highway and the starting point came into view, there was no doubt...





I counted 50 cars in the staging area for the start of the tour, but 9 had come for the "car show" provided by the tourers (and it was a great one) and opted not to take the challenge of sea level to 5,000' in about 45 miles.

All 41 cars that started made it to the top without incident...







Lots more photos and videos here...

https://www.flickr.com/photos/996911...h/36302499652/

It was a beautiful day in spite of the lingering smoke from the BC fires.
Hopefully other Barners that were on the tour can post their photos and videos also.

All I can say is Thank you! Thanks to all who came out and participated and helped out when needed! Thanks to Dick,Art and Larry! A club President could not have a better crew! This was a long time in the making! We got a lot of Model A's together so they can be seen! Hopefully with that we can all inspire the next generation. That is what did it for me. When I was younger I would see a Model A convoy and I thought that was the best thing ever and when I got older I had to get involved! Thank you! Thank you, Thank you! Benny (President /Editor) Moon On A.

It was worth staying up until midnight the night before to get my oil pan back on so we could attend the "A"-scent! I'd never seen so many Model As in one place with my own eyes. I thought there were a lot when I got the meet up point before 9, and then another 25 Model As showed up!

Unfortunately we got stuck behind a DOT truck painting the centerline southbound on SR9 so it took a loooong time to get home. ~230 miles round trip for us.

We got caught up in DOT white line painting also.Then made it to Edmonds for the ferry to Kingston, we had an hour wait for a ferry. We did not get home, Port Orchard, until 8:30 pm, the mileage from Artist Point to Port Orchard was approximately 168 Miles.

We enjoyed the "A sent" up Mt Baker and also having a pleasant lunch on the snow fields. In the snow field, we picked a warm and dry rock to sit on for lunch. After lunch we visited Nooksack Falls and also enjoyed visiting its rich history of its evolution from being an electrical power station in 1890 to being just a tourist destination in 2017. After Nooksack Falls, it was ice cream cones on Highway 9 at Acme. I found that a triple scoop cone was too much ice cream for me and my wife Merrily. Dog Cola helped finish it. Doing all of this, we were still home in Sedro-Woolley before 2 PM and from my above posting, I was posting on line by 2:46 PM. First photo was taken at Artist point. Second photo was taken at the parking lot at Nooksack Falls. Thank you Moon On A's President Benny. You are making America Great Again!

Glad, you'll had a good time and made it home safe! Now next year we got our work cut out for us! The Canadians think they can out do us on their soil? Which I don't think is possible because I don't think there are any mountains IN Canada? Benny
