Wolf Run is probably the next closest and is a very clean, quiet park. Some sites with elec, some without. Clean showerhouses, pit toilets. Nice lake also. We live in Cambridge and prefer Wolf Run to Salt Fork even though S.F. is much larger, closer, and has more amenities. W.R. to us is just quieter and more relaxing. Also better maintained. Dillon is nice but it's been many years since I last camped there so can't really comment much on it.

Enjoy, Brad

For you enjoyment, the following is provided by Pee Wee!

All you rally are expected to abide





WHAT WE EXPECT OF YOU


On this tour our little group will be living and traveling together for at least 6 months through Africa, 3 months in the Holy Land and from 4 to 6 months in Europe. It will be an exceedingly interesting journey with great gobs of unusual experiences. But, in the same breath, there will be hardships, none that are insurmountable nor downright dangerous, but some might be on the tiresome side, monotonous in places and with a faint tinge of danger.

Although the responsibility and the dollars and cents of this undertaking is great, the amount of physical energy I am expending and will continue to expend means a great deal more to me. Therefore, you can obviously see that on this tour we must reduce the possibility of personal misunderstandings, bickerings, arguments, dissention, etc., to the very minimum. No person is as important to me as the peace of mind of the entire organization. And, although the Golden Rule is the only rule of the Caravan, to be more specific, we have worked out a "Ten Commandments of the Caravan," which we hope will set forth our desires in a friendly and not autocratic manner.

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF THE WALLY BYAM CARAVAN


(1) THOU SHALT LOVE THY FELLOW CARAVANNERS AS THYSELF AND DO ALL IN THY POWER TO AID AND ASSIST THEM.

Since this Caravan is going into a rough country on an adventorous journey, we must all realize that each must rely on his neighbor. We all must be ready, willing and anxious to help each other in every way possible.


(2) THOU SHALT CONDUCT THYSELF FOR THE GOOD OF THE CARAVAN AND NOT FOR THY SELFISH INTEREST.

This is a one for all and all for one Caravan. The whole of the Caravan is more important than anyone individual. If any one Caravanner has special privileges, the same privileges should be available to all.

(3) THOU SHALT ALWAYS CONDUCT THYSELVES AS LADIES AND GENTLMEN FROM A CIVILIZED COUNTRY.

All of us -every individual one of us- must realize that once traveling abroad that we are all Ambassadors of Good Will for America, and must conduct ourselves accordingly.

At times, beligerent loud-mouthed American tourists harmed the reputation of Americans abroad. This must not happen.

(4) THOSE IMBIBING IN INTOXICATING BEVERAGES SHALL CONDUCT THEMSELVES LIKE KENTUCKY GENTLEMEN (AND LADIES)

Much of the territory we will be traveling through will be Mohammedan country where liquor is expressly prohibited by religious mandate. Need more be said.


(5) THOU SHALT NOT CRITICIZE THY HOST COUNTRY NOR ITS CITIZENS.

We must all realize that each of the countries we will be traveling through has its own long history of its culture and customs, and it is not up to us to criticize whether they are better or worse than our own.

(6) THOU SHALT ALWAYS ABIDE BY THE MAJORITY VOTE.

Democracy is a distinguishing factor of America. We realize that the members of the Caravan are all rugged individualists, but where it is necessary for the good of the Caravan individualism must be subordinated to majority rule. If you are so constitued that you cannot abide by the majority vote we would rather that you not join on with us.

(7)THOU SHALT IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES PRESERVE THE UNITY OF THE CARAVAN

As a group of American tourists traveling together we are somebody. We get special attention, special receptions, special entertainment. WE ARE IMPORTANT. As a group we can get more than any of us can get singly, or in smaller groups. When you sign up with this caravan we expect you to become a wholehearted part of it. We do not want any small splinter groups operating as or within the Caravan.

(8) THOU SHALT NEVER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES PASS THE WAGON BOSS UNLESS HE SPECIFICALLY GIVES YOU PEMISSION TO DO SO.

The Wagon Boss travels at the head of the Caravan, sets the daily run, picks the daily route, arrives first at the parking site. We have had unpleasant instances in the past when a few Caravanners jumped ahead, met the city officials, gave misleading information to the press, stole the thunder of the Caravan, representing themselves as the Caravan and leaving no reception when the Caravan came in. This is obviously unfair. Thus the Wagon Boss. It is not necessary that you travel the same road as the Caravan or that you travel with the convoy. You can lag behind, set your own schedule or travel on adjacent roads on either side. You just can not be ahead of the Wagon Boss nor arrive in the parking site in any village or city ahead of him.

(9) THOU SHALT NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES SPREAD RUMORS BUT RATHER BRING THEM UP AT MEETING WHERE THEY CAN BE PUBLICLY DISCUSSED.

You all know how distorted a message can become when it is passed from ear to ear. Bring it up at Meeting Time so that we can all benefit from it or check its true value.


(10) THOU SHALT REALIZE THAT THE LEADERSHIP OF THE CARAVAN AT ALL TIMES DESERVES THY WHOLEHEARTED CO-OPERATION.

Leading an adventurous group of this kind is a heavy responsibility. The leader must think first, last and always for the good of the Caravan. You must realize that he is devoting his ALL to the happiness and safety of the individuals who comprise it. Sometimes he might have to make quick decisions on his own which he will expect to be complied with until the whole matter can be brought out in meeting time.

You can readily understand that on an operation of this magnitude
that there must be a great deal of advance planning. Without advance planning there could not be a successful tour. A schedule is made up showing when and where the Caravan will be and governmental and tourist officials are so notified. It is thus necessary that we adhere to our schedule. For these reasons changes in the schedule will not ordinarily be subject to vote.

Glad Pee Wee sent them. Wally is the kind of leader we need today. Hmmmm, I think I could convince him to be the Wagon Boss for the Wilds!

Also I forgot the proper credit "Thanks to Pee Wee and the Estate of Helen Byam Schwamborn for the document"

We're coming!

I'm coming from Virginia, My sister will be joining me - she lives in Akron, OH. Please let me know if there will be an extra charge for her car to be at the campground.

We'll both plan on going on the safari and buffet.

Looking forward to meeting you PeeWee! And of course to meeting new and old friends. Loudruff, which Airstream are you bringing, the Argy or the Big'un?

Paula

Dagnabit! We knew that we were a "maybe" with this one, but it has turned in to a "not gonna be able to make it". Sorry we won't get to meet you there Paula and Karen. We committed ourselves to a band boosters pancake breakfast event and can't undo that date. It is a three day commitment and Larry and I set up the whole deal. Hopefully some newbies in the boosters will learn how this time and take it over for the Spring event and we can dismiss ourselves gracefully this year. We are sorry not to get to do this because we have been looking at the Wilds for awhile and hoping to get there. This would have been a fun thing! P.S. We were going to be bringing the Excella (big un)! LOL! Hope you have a great time!
Lou and Larry

Two questions: Is the sunset tour sold out (if anyone knows) and is anyone else thinking of going to a campground?

Also, I recently bought several old issues of Art in America from the 60's. In the July-August 1966 issue there is an article entitled "Mobile Architecture". Included are two pictures of Airstreams, one of which is a picture from the caravan. It shows the AS's parked inside a Roman ruin outside Jerash in Jordan.

More of Cape Town

OK, Dan has assigned me to represent Cape Town on our adventure. I've been reading Lillie Douglass' book "Cape Town to Cairo". One thing I didn't realize was that her contingent (she indicates not all left Cape Town at the same time) began the caravan in the driving rain. What a way to start a historic journey! It didn't seem to dampen anyone's spirit. Neither did bogging down in the mud the first time they parked for the night.


Since Dan suggested that pot luck dishes might represent those found on the journey, I've been paying attention to foods Lillie mentions. For Cape Town and South Africa, I've found these:
  • prunes, cornflakes, bread and butter, coffee
  • ostrich meat biltong with ostrich egg omelets
  • tea and scones with tart jam and whipped cream
  • hamburgers (which Lillie made in the trailer) made with "heavy white loaf bread"
  • braai-vleis ("fry meat" like barbeque) with sosatie (the sauce, recipe to follow)
  • milk tart (similar to a custard pie)
It's not exactly the BBQ sauce of down south in Dixie, but the sosatie recipe she gives is:
4 sliced onions
4 bay leaves
1 cup vinegar
2 teaspoons sugar
2-3 teaspoons curry powder (must be where they get the heat )
Cook until onions are soft. Marinate sliced or cubed chops of mutton, beef, or pork, one layer meat, one layer sosatie, for 3-4 days (yes, days). Then grill over an outdoor fire.
Y'all might escape the Monkey Gland Sauce. I think I will make a couple of milk tarts instead.

Recipes from Zimbabwe

Danielle and I were just discussing the fact that we are behind schedule on choosing a recipe to represent Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). A quick search on the web finds we have choices ranging from before-dinner cocktails, appetizers, main courses and desserts. Many dishes seem rather ordinary (maybe due to the British influence) and some may require a trip to an international farmers market to find the ingredients.

We'll keep working on ideas. Whatever we end up with it's sure to be fun at this rally.

Time to Make a Decision

Okay all you "RSVP Maybe" folks... It's time to make your decision - go ahead and sign-up for this rally - make the committment. This is going to be one very unique event. Not to be missed.

Danielle and I (and I know there are others) will be attending the Cape (Town) Giriduea, MO to Cairo, IL rally to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the caravan and then were going the The Wilds rally too. It's gonna be crazy but I can't wait!

We put new tires on the Airstream two weeks ago. The Suburban is in good working order - we're ready! Now we just have to work on that Southern Rhodesia recipe.

Lucius

OK, so after a brief intermission, it's time for me to keep this rally on everybodies mind!

Back to the food assignments! We're gonna skip . They probably eat just like the southerners?

So Jason and Andrea will be assigned to represent Belgian Congo! Seems this country was undergoing quite an era during the rally. Maybe Pee Wee has some stories to shed?

More to come!

That's eating!
Er. . . PeeWee. . . I see that in addition to giraffe, lion, elephant, etc., warrior appears three times on the menu.

Just what kind of warriors were you eating on that caravan?????

Cheers,
Nuvi
