    Dear Heidi,

    We read of your travels while on vacation in Morocco a few weeks ago, so we felt like we had a Holiday within a Holiday as we travelled virtually with you ­čśë

    You are an exceptional Woman & a true inspiration to us middle-aged folk!

    Will you be travelling to South Africa ?
    If yes, do you know if you’ll pass by the seaside town of Hermanus (3 hours drive SE of Cape Town) ?
    My father was a Berliner but lived many decades in SA. Since my mom is based in Hermanus, i know she would be thrilled to meet you & invite you to some lekker Deutsche Kaffee & Kuchen if your drive Schedule permits ­čÖé

    Also, once you finally reach European soil & if you find yourself in the French-speaking area of Switzerland (btwn Geneva & Lausanne) as you travel back up to Berlin, pls drop me a line (have plenty of room if you need to spend the night or if Hudo needs to make a ‘Pause’ ;-))

    Safe continued travels & Viel spass!!

    As you head further south in the US, you might enjoy a stop in Jekyll Island, GA. It was a winter resort for many of the titans of US industry, including John D. Rockefeller, Henry Hyde, Marshall Field, John Pierpont Morgan, Joseph Pulitzer, and William K. Vanderbilt. There are still “cottages” from the golden era on the island. Hudo & Heidi would fit right in. See Wikipedia for Jekyll Island Club.

    Dear Heidi,
    only recently I foud out about your trip and since then I read your reports with great interest. Especially about how the Hudson is keeping up. Respect! I am a classic car enthousiast myself and have travelled all over Europe in various veteran and vintage cars. I also keep a stock in classic car parts and found out that I have two cylinderhead gaskets for your 1930 Hudson. They are two four cylinder gaskets, as the Hudson has two seperate cylinderheads in line to make the eight-in-line. They are as they call it “new-old-stock”. Are copper/asbestos, the make is Victor (USA) number 802. So if you are in need (again) of a couple of headgaskets I am pleased to send them to whereever you will be when you need them. Free of charge. See it as a donation to support the adventure. I really admire your very brave attempt in travelling around the world. I think you have the same experience that I had on my travels that the old car opens doors everywhere you turn up. People get in touch easily and the thumbs up all of the time.
    Keep up the good work and I wish you lots of succes on the remaining leg of the adventurous journey.
    Kind regards from Bergen aan Zee in Holland,

    Greetings Heidi fans, technical lingo in English is tough enuff, in German it’s tuffer ! Google translator is not the best. Heidi was investigating an oil leak with the engine running, when oil pressure is naturally higher. Mr. Hudo has an external shaft which from the photos drives the distributor and perhaps oil pump. The rag which she was using to determine the exact source of the leak was drawn on or into the shaft, apparently with great torque, and her fingers were smashed (putting it lightly) in the process. German doesn’t translate literally. Longhairs like me please be careful, because when your hair gets drawn in your head is next ! Wear a cap or tie up your locks ! Heidi is tough, she’ll be back on the road soon. get well Heidi !!

      From a recent article in Hemmings Motor News’ daily email Heidi was projecting to be in Bennington Vermont on or about September 15 to visit their car museum and publishing company. It seems that will be later than the 15 now, since later yesterday, September 13 she and Hudo were still in St Catharines ON Canada. I would love to know if there is a new date planned for her visit to Bennington. My wife and I plan to drive to Bennington from our home in Forestport NY (about 200 miles) to be part of how ever many folks like us that wish see her and Hudo and wish them good luck on their wonderful adventure.
      So If anyone knows of a projected date for her visit to Bennington please pass that info on. We are flexible and retired so able to roll with the flow.

    Hello Marla,
    Eric here again, Saw the 26, August posting and just had to let you know Heidi is not alone when in the U.S. I was saddened to hear she felt better about the mechanics in Canada than in U.S. but I understand the decision. I don’t know if Heidi has a H.E.T club roster with her. If not, please contact me if she needs anything for Hudo, I will do what I can to contact help in any State she visits. The members are always willing to lend a hand, or a part, and in general are great people. There are persons in the roster who are specially marked as “Tourist Emergency Help Members” that if contacted will assist to the best of their ability (and usually deny compensation).
    I’m sure that the H.E.T.er’s wish her all the best, and want Heidi’s adventure to be safe & successful, as do I.

      The Hudson Essex Terraplane Club has been GREAT. Heidi was very upset the Colorado Springs meeting 3 weeks ago just couldn’t be fit into the route. It would have taken giving up on Canada entirely. I must mention Jon Battle, who has answered calls of help, made contacts and has been super helpful throughout the past months Heidi has been in North America.

      Heidi does not think Canadian mechanics are superior at all (bad translation job, my fault). Rather, she ran into some problems on the west coast, just bad luck probably, when repair shops declined her business for fear of liability issues if they mess up. Heidi of course finds it utterly ridiculous to think that she would stop her round the world adventure in order to take the time to pursue a law suit because some repair goes wrong!

      Thank you so much everyone for your positive feedback! Since the Hemmings online publication a few days ago Heidi has been flooded with invitations from all over, even Peru and Argentina! She will visit with as many people as she can. Meeting people has been the best part of her trip.

        Hello Marla,
        Everything in your reply is great to hear. I hope Heidi gets to meet all the beautiful people here and abroad that appreciate this great endeavor.
        I am so happy to hear Heidi has a “lifeline” of sorts here, and that her meetings with H.E.T. members has been positive. I can’t recall if I’ve met Jon, the name seems familiar, but he sounds like a great resource.
        I understood Heidi’s reason for the Canadian mechanics, not that they’re better, just willing. I find this a sad commentary on our (US) fear of lawsuits, but when every third or so commercial on television is an attorney promising to “make someone pay” it unfortunately brain washes you into thinking any mistake you make can mean trouble.
        Though disappointing Heidi had to forgo the Colo. Springs meet, it is completely understandable. After Heidi is home and rested I hope to stay in touch with you and Heidi, I think she would make a great keynote speaker at a future H.E.T. International meet. In any case I look forward to seeing the book/DVD about her adventure. I hope there are plans for a memoir.
        Thanks again Marla, Heidi is regularly in my thoughts and prayers for a happy, safe, and successful journey.

      The Canadian Maritimes are beautiful in the Autumn. We leave in Fredericton and would love to be your hosts for a few days. We have friends from Germany who have loved it here.

      What a great adventure in a great car! Having been involved with many vintage autos (and newer ones) I would like to warn against adding cold water to a hot engine as it is a sure way to crack the head or even the block! You must allow things to cool off.

      Gutte reise!

    I was wondering about Heidis route here in the United States, I would love to have the chance to meet this adventurous soul, if only for lunch.
    Your July 14 post says she is heading up to Seattle after seeing Las Vegas. I would be remiss if I didn’t point out the HET club International meet is Aug. 12 in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I know the timing is poor, but I’m sure everyone would be excited to see Heidi and Hudo there. There will even be a trip to and up Pikes Peak during the meet, which I hope is on Heidi’s to do list.
    I am in Denver Colorado, and if I can help Heidi in any way please let me know.

      Hello Eric, Thank you for the reminder. I wrote to Heidi today about the HET Club meet. Turning back south after Vancouver would change the planned route fundamentally. But with Heidi, nothing is ever set in stone. I’m sure she’ll be tempted. Though then it’s a very long, tedious road from Colorado to Chicago….

        Hello Marla,
        Well MY fingers are crossed. If she makes it that will be the second time an overseas Hudson came to a Colorado National, back in ’86 we had a Phaeton from Australia. I will continue monitoring her travels, I really hope her route will bring her to Colorado.
        If she does make the trek two options for Denver to Chicago that might interest her are the Lincoln Highway (I-80) which practically goes straight to Chicago.The Lincoln Highway was the first transcontinental highway for automobiles across the United States of America.
        Another, out of the way, route would be up to South Dakota to see Mount Rushmore/Crazy Horse monuments, though this would be a long drive.
        And I must suggest the Henry Ford Museum if she gets to Detroit, really a must for a car/transportation history enthusiast.
        Thank you,
        Hudsonly, Eric R. Jacobsen

    Dear Heidi,
    We met at the Dunhuang Caves in China last Fall. It was nice to hear about your adventures and to see that you have continued around the world.
    Are you coming to Seattle? That is where I live.
    Let me know.

      Hi Tamalyn,
      Yes Heidi will come to Seattle. The question is when exactly… She still doesn’t have her car, though the Container ship from NZ has arrived in LA. Paperwork, customs…
      She’s headed to Palm Springs, Sedona, Grand Canyon, Las Vegas next. Then north. Seattle perhaps at the end of July.
      I’ll keep you posted!
      Cheers,
      Marla, Heidi’s daughter in Germany
