Think of what is sold in South Africa and who’s spare parts are available throughout Africa.
- Nissan Patrol, Toyota Land Cruiser and Landrover Defender, but not our U.S. big three TVs.

Ask yourself: “What is in it for them?” Why support rich tourist from the U.S. of A.?
- Unlimited world-wide advertising as our primary supporter.

Determine their cost to supply us with 25+ TVs and factor in the resale or salvage value.
- Maybe a low of $ 500,000 to over $ 1 million. Pocket change if you have deep pockets.

Compare that to several 15 second Super Bowl or 2008 Olympic ads on international television. Is it worth it?

How about the alien unit on EBay? With proper engineering you may be able to make that a hover craft. Think of the transmissions you may be able to send from up above.

2air,

There is a good looking 1979 Safari on ebay now with an $8,000 bid. The ad calls it a 1978 25' International Safari. It is in Tennessee.

I am pleased to report that Airstream Life magazine has become the first official sponsor of the Cape Town to Cairo caravan!

We've been working with Bert Kalet and Roger Wilson, leaders of the north- and south-bound routes, ever since the announcement came that there would be no support from WBCCI. We'll be providing space in the magazine for the caravan to recruit additional members, make announcements, etc.

We've also got a few other VERY interesting ideas in the works, which I hope to be able to announce later. All I can say is, it's going to be a lot of fun to watch whether you're going on the caravan or not!

Congrats to all who are going. Wish we could join you!
