Oct. 23, 1922 – Follansbee’s “Dizzy Four” Travel Across The Nation

Traveling thousands of miles, four local boys reached the Pacific coast, traveling overland in a Ford touring machine.  The Herald Star reported that William Krager, Louis Dillar, Walter Moyer and Harry Lambing, reached Los Angeles in 27 days.   The four men stopped at all places of interest sending post cards regularly.   Remarkably, their trip was delayed for only four hours due to breakdowns and tire trouble.  Post cards were received daily by relatives and friends who watched with interest their road trip across the country in a Ford. The specific model of the car was not identified by the newspaper.
