Automotive history is filled with famous men like Henry Ford, but have you ever heard of Alice Rarnsey & Nettie Powell? Yes, Thelma & Louise may have perfected Girlfriend Cruising, but Alice Ramsey invented it!
Joined by Nettie Powell & 2 other wornen in 1909, Alice, a 22-year old mother & Vassar grad, hitched up her skirts & took to the road. Well, almost. Actually, there was no real road between New York & San Francisco, but that didn’t deter these women on wheels from driving 4000 miles in just
under 2 m0nths. Undaunted by danger & unencumbered by a map, they wound their way from coast to coast, using private roads, open fields & railroad straights during this literal “ground-breaking” journey!
Now that’s what I call a Road Trip!
