Bluegrass Back Road T's 2016 Tour

Posted on January 7, 2016 at 5:15 PM

Bluegrass Back Road T’s 2016 Tour.

Please join the Bluegrass Back Road T’s 2016 tour as we return to Corydon, IN  for four days of fun starting daily from the Holiday Inn Express - Corydon.  Registration will begin on Tuesday, May 31st. The fun begins on Wednesday, June 1st and the last day of touring is Saturday, June 4th.  Check out is Sunday, June 5th.

With Kim Doty and his exceptional route planning and navigational skills, we will travel some of the best Model T roads in three counties.

This year we will travel to the Jasper transmission rebuild facility, view the Kentucky ocean from the northern border, dine at the world famous Polly Freeze and be entertained by the Brass Band on the square in Corydon.  We will cross over several iron bridges, drive through several creek crossings and have a catered lunch by Ladonna, who has been kind enough to cater lunch for us in the past.

We will do things a little differently this tour than we have done before.  We will do a “pay as you go” to keep the registration cost down and allow options for those who may not the like group menu choices.  We will have negotiated lunch stop rates for all group lunches.  The minimal registration costs will be to cover needed items and include the trouble truck expenses and hospitality room snacks and water. 

We will also send out route and event sheets for you to print at home using the print size and font of your choice.  The host hotel will be the Holiday Inn Express - Corydon, with a campground nearby. Registration for the hotel will begin on January 1st, 2016 with a preferred Model T rate.  Simply ask for it.

We would enjoy your company at our 2016 Bluegrass Back Road T tour.  Please register for the tour with Linda at

Thank You
The Bluegrass Back Road T’s and Two Hoosiers
