Thanks Dan,

My pleasure to assist you in your rally since it is all about the African trip. Nice ideas with the country flags. I posed the question about authentic African dishes that may have been seen on the 59 Caravan, but we are still hashing it out. It may turn into a potluck serving popular dishes from 1959 and 1960 that the caravanners would have missed out on eating while away

Steve

Sugerfoot! Dacia is in charge of South Africa (capetown)

I was considering having people prepare a native dish for the potluck! I'm thinking of providing a flag for the trailer instead!
Alright!

Cape Town it is. I will be proud to display the flag. I'll check into Cape Town's regional cuisine. Being on the coast, it's probably something to do with seafood. Not sure this vegetarian would know how to cook any of that. But I'll come up with something.

Salad is always a good first course. And I've been surfing a bit. South African cuisine seems rather varied because of colonial influences. There are lots of possibilities.

Steve, I seem to remember a statement you made to me, something to the effect of "man cannot live on lettuce alone." I found a recipe for something called "Monkey Gland Sauce" This could be interesting.

As much of a carnivore that I am, I eat a 3 pound bag of salad per week. I love the stuff that much!

Your dish sounds fun, but where are we going to get fresh monkey in Ohio of all places?

Steve

You could substitute possum - likely taste the same.

OK, OK so Dacia gets to get started preparing... when do the rest of us get to get started on research? We can't come up with this stuff overnight ya know...wait, we have 2 months, don't we? But I still gotta get the fridge working on propane between now and then, so, little time to think about cooking. Come on now, tell us what the rest of the country / dish order is.

Some where I have a picture of a boiling delicacy that the miners ate in their compound.

It is bilious yellow, smells and I guess okay if you have to eat it. Not!

It is boiled uncleaned tripe. How about that for a Johannesburg meal.

Many places in the US are starting to serve Offal in American eateries. Many look at it as the, "waste not want not," attitude. While I feel that organ meats like tripe, intestines, brain, livers, hearts, kidneys or pretty much any internal organ are considered, "good eats" by some people, I am mostly disgusted when I think about eating it.

Now...where's that possum.

Steve

Today we are two days away from the official meeting day of July 10, 1959. This was the day all the participants were scheduled to arrive in Africa. Right now, several families are still crossing the ocean waiting out some bad weather.

nvestysly - You next! I'm please to announce that Lucius and Danielle will be representing Southern Rhodesia. This territory was part of the Central African Federation in 1959. It was under British rule.

Today the area is know as Zimbabwe

-----------
As some may be figuring out, I only have a limited amonut of countires to assign! If you want one, please register! If you are unable to pay everything right now, or are undecided about the tours, just send the parking fee ($15). I'll hold your spot.

Again, I must stress that the Sunset buffet and tour is open to the general public. We are charging exactly what it costs. It will sell out. If you want to go to it, please reserve early.

I do know that the Sunset tour is a high cost item. Several participants are electing to go on one of the lower cost alternative tours. Please know this option is available and will not sell out.

So Lucius, Monkey soup is taken. So you'll need to think of something else to bring......

I would dearly love to come to this! My only sticking point is the dogs. While I understand why they don't want pets, they were one of the reasons that we opted for a travel trailer in the first place, because we want them with us.

So, I need to talk to the boss, and see if we can do something else with the boys. If it weren't for that I would say yes for certain. Drat! Is anyone else contemplating staying at the campground instead?

Yep, I feel for you! I'm currently in the process of rescuing a newf. When that happens the puppy will be with me all the time.

But, understandably, the resident animals welfare has to come first on this one. This was made VERY clear to me. No execptions. sorry.

I would encourage you to consider a nearby campground. You certainly can still experience much of the rally.
