More of Tier

Right after Fat Tuesday, Feb. 11, 1975, Tier & Cut drove back to Texas where Harry & Jack, after touring Florida, joined them a few weeks later.

At the campsite: drinking beer

Jack & Harry's Florida tour included visiting Kim Schoephoester and new husband Jack McDonald in Ft. Lauderdale, whose father owned McDonald Pontiac in Morristown, as well as Sarah Reilly in Tampa and her sister Patty at the University of Florida, who died there a year or so later in a bike accident when a car struck her. Read about Kim's father, Mr. Schoephoester, and what he did during WWII by clicking here (at bottom of page).
