It would be wonderful if Etta's books, plus all of the other books about the early days of caravanning that are long out of print such as Capetown to Cairo, Thank you Marco Polo, Retire to Adventure, Fifth Avenune on Wheels, etc. could be reprinted, or made available as a PDF document. I'm sure that there are many who would love to read those books.

Only a few of the Caravanners went across the desert. As you can see from the picture at times it was extreme in the sand. Because it was winter, heat wasn't a factor. Only sand.

The three aux vehicles went across the desert to support the Caravanners.

Like a classroom where more effort is put into the class, those that went across the desert had a gold star next to their names for the additional, toil, time and trouble.

Etta and Oscar never passed on a chance to go the extra mile.

I might get called out for being negative... but seeing these photos and reading PeeWee's accompanying tales makes me wonder why today, the club focuses on traveling to full hook-up convention facilities rather than opportunities to seek out experiences that inspire memories of a lifetime.

I think we should all print a copy of this photo... so that we call pull it out each time the going gets a little tough.
