Join In! and Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the African Caravan

Join in with the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the 1959 Wally Byam Caravan to Africa.

A trip not to be forgotton, not to be duplicated, but a Caravan of Airstream enthusiasts to be remembered.

There are several oppourtunities to join in with groups having fun by having rallies to turn the clock back.

Here is a journal of 2009 of what's has happened and what the future offers.

Happy Anniversary Wally Byam Caravanners that went from Cape Town to Cairo on the African Caravan.

Awesome!

Pee Wee,

Thanks for all you're doing to help celebrate this historic anniversary!

Awesome to have you serving as Advance Scout for the WDCU caravan to Madison. Shouldn't be near as much a challenge as Africa. (Although you didn't have to worry about speed traps in Africa. . . )

What other rarities and un-fit conditions do you think we may run into PEEWEE? I hear the toll operators are fierce and sometimes uncontrollable, but a wise trucker told me once that bologna will tame them, I haven't tried it as I am too scared to get that close or go that slow when confronted, but was wondering if it ever worked for you?

Two cloves of garlic, one raw onion, and sour mash.
