Wally, you need not say goodbye.

You were a good custodian for #83, getting it's restoration well underway, but I certainly understand how these projects can grow into larger projects than originally anticipated. I am glad that #83 has a new owner that will continue the progress to truly get that historic Airstream back on the road.

I would be happy to keep you in the ATW communications loop as we continue to learn more and more about this historic trip and await the next surviving ATW Airstream to be rediscovered.

I hope you and Janni now have more time to enjoy using your other Airstream and hope that our paths may cross some day in the future.

Joe, I'm glad I was able to locate Fran Halls niece. Her willingness to share the 134 photos and Fran's personal notes/recollections of the caravan will help everyone better understand what the travelers went through.
Janni & I appreciate being kept in the ATW loop. Being part of this endeavor has been a wonderful experience in our lives. Thankful to not be saying "Good-bye".

Well, #83 is now home with us in Oregon. Thank you Janni and Wally for allowing us to have her. We are so excited to get it back on the road again! We are not often on Airforums, but I'll try to post periodic updates on our progress.
