This was an epic, epic road trip. Brother Ed secured a car which was christened “Randal F Magnet” – an abbreviation of Randy Fanny Magnet, because it was sooo bad that it was cool.
Uncle Tom Shearer had found Ed this old Ford for $500. No air con. Plastic seats. UGLY.
The troop was Ed Shearer, Amy Shearer, Angus and I. We travelled to Yosemite, Las Vegas and a few other places together,… including Barstow where we stayed the night that Princess Dianna died tragically.
