Way cool show ya'll.
My PDA beeped 5 minutes before the start, I would have forgotten otherwise, and I fired up the TV, switched to the local over-the-air channels and disaster! NO PBS Signal!

Quick thinking saved the day.... Out to the Airstream, crank up the antenna and turn on the AC.

I watched the entire HD episode sitting in an airconditioned '77 Ambassador while sipping on a glass of Biltmore Merlot

Doesn't get much better than that.

Great show

I thought the show was very well done.Great to see the interviews with Shari and PeeWee.Too bad Fred's got cut.I'm sure it would have been great also.

This show was extra special for me.I've played History Detective on these very Forums over 100 times the last year or so.It's been a lot of fun and I believe very satisifying for both myself and the folks I've tracked numbers for.And yes,I could have tracked this one(3684) fairly quickly but PeeWee's itinerary and list of participants was the clincher.

Great job by all involved in the show.

Thumbs up It was an AWESOME segment!

I called friends and family at 8:50 and said, "WATCH! I know who some of these folks are, you've got to see this."

Everyone looked and sounded great. Too bad they didn't show what's on the cutting room floor. I would have liked to seen Fred's part. But this thread is great, sorta fills in the "behind the scenes" stuff. Pee Wee ~ I love Wally's jacket.

When I was watching it the idea struck me that his investigation was not much different than what goes on here nearly weekly

Not only did they cut Fred, but Toni and I were filmed over a three hour period.

Thumbs up So they don't lost in the shuffle . . .

For those who may have missed them, here are links to a couple of PeeWee's other threads related to this History Detective episode.

History Dectives Airstream Story Plus Some Items

1959 African Caravan Movie Footage

I can't get the PBS slide show to advance, but the Caravan Movie is a must if you haven't seen it.

Thanks PeeWee, for sharing with us and the world. We all love you!

I had problems making the slide show go forward.

Then I clicked on the word not the arrow.

Indeed! I forgot about it and only got to see about the last half. Gonna have to see if it's on again (we actually have two PBS stations in Atlanta).

Mike, how do pick you up PBS broadcasts in Canada? Or are you down here visiting at the moment?

As long as I can remember,in Atlantic Canada we have had cable piped in from the USA.Most of the stations we get are based in New England.The PBS affiliate for our area is WGBH Boston.

I thought it was curious that there didn't seem to be any attempt to contact the original owner...find out a little more detail on the trailer's history. But maybe they did, and it got cut, too?
oh, well. It was fun! they certainly could've saved all that detail, and stretched it out to a whole hour.

I am well rested today, but did not get to see it.
62Overlander,
If you can wait a few days and stay up late or get up really early, WHYY out of Philly is scheduled to re-brodcast it on 07/25/2008 @ 02:00.

I know ALOT ended up on the cutting room floor...I talked extensively about the WBCCI and that there are still caravans, rallys & gatherings going on today all over the country & Canada. Also talked about how the VAC is an IntraClub (or special interest group) of the WBCCI focusing on the old trailers ~ some that HAVE gone on those old caravans.

I KNOW Fred, PeeWee & Toni all contributed much more information than time allowed showing too and told their own stories...but it didn't quite fit in the History Detective's "story" they were trying to tell. Oh well, sometimes that kinda footage will show up somewhere else...so keep your eyes peeled!

They were here in Denver for 2-1/2 days...I'm sure just as much in CA with the owners & the museum ~ oh well.

Shari
