FrogEyed Midget almost ready

We are Rick and Peter Bastedo.
Rick is 'dad' and Peter is 'son'.

We are currently planning a father & son road trip to Road America, a 2000 mile drive (each way) from our home in Snoqualmie Washington.

The Frog-Midget is almost ready for the big trip to Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.
We will leave Friday morning at 7:00 AM from North Bend Washington, our first days journey will end in Missoula Montana where we will be guests at a BBQ in our honor.

Joining us will be Bill L. from Kelso Washington in his red Austin Healey Sprite, Bill M. from Renton Washington in his orange MG Midget and Mike B. also from Renton in his red Bugeye Sprite.

Our plan is to arrive at Elkhart Lake on Monday, July 18th - the starting date of the Midget 50th anniversary celebration.


  1. at the risk of repeating myself Rick, that is a very good looking car! Also have fun on your travels!

  2. Thank you, it's shiny now with the clear coat applied. We will enjoy the heck out of the trip - I promise!

  3. My husband and my son,
    Buckled, alert, and staring through the screen!
    Off to view counties unseen,
    The car grins as it careens,
    Companion cars middle to mean,
    Bar-be-ques protest against keeping it lean,
    The roads tell of other trips that have been,
    Only the compulsive keeps their car clean,
    Now goes orange, and red, and a frog-eyed green!

  4. Rick, Peter--best wishes on your trip. I wish I could be doing this with my son. Great idea to run this blog. Safety Fast--have fun.
