PeeWee, do you have the rest of the article? Or know anything about the Laramie etching?

I have most of the Airstream Caravanner papers.

When I scanned the article it was for information about the See America First Caravan with Lynda Bird Johnson. There is additional columns for the story, they just covered additional rally info.

Art Costello Jr., Nick Charles and myself were the drivers for three 30' Airstreams, with Bonnevilles furnished by Pontiac. One of our stops was the rally in Laramie.

Lynda Bird participated in the WBCCI, 4th of July parade. She rode in her tow vehicle, a covertible.

I encourage all of you to visit the Sierra Neveda webside and look up the info I have provided. I had a deep appreciation for the work that Diane has done in organizing and presenting the letter, magazines, books, papers and many pictured not before seen in print.

The etching is a typical thing to do with a sidewalk. Who did it? I don't know. But it might have been the school to keep the walkway tied into the 1965 rally. Or it might have been Airzorro, riding the wind at midnight, swording a message for posterity.

I have found the Sierra Nevada website to be a great resource, I have logged many a hour there.

I actually found the portion of the article I linked to via a google search...I wasn't able to easily locate it (or the continued page) on the Sierra Nevada website - I looked. I just was wondering if you have a link to the other pages which you (or Diane) can direct me to? More as a resource to find out everything I can about the Laramie International rallies in particular ~

I have a few things, but they haven't been scanned yet. I have set priorities on Wally, my Mother, Caravans, and Airstream.

I will scan a picture from National Geographis that is a great pic of the rally.
