Jack Sisemore RV Museum

Stopped by yesterday before we left Amarillo. The museum is in a new location and there are no signs. Definitely worth a visit.Click image for larger version

Exclamation

PS -- Just think of what it took to organize these rallies all over the world, starting in 1948 . . . without much international communication available except telegraph,ham radio, mail, and rudimentary long-distance hard line telephone calls.



Needless to say, there is no URL link above to:

https:Wally.Byam.Mind.Blowing.International.Carava ns.All.Over.The.World.staggering . . .

Nor any mobile phone or satellite phone numbers.

["What is a satellite?" . . . one can hear Wally asking!]

Cape Town to Cairo in 1959? - Piece of cake!

Have a good weekend,

Peter

This trailer is a "fantasy peice". It did not travel to the places noted in the years noted as painted on it's side.

It does not even exactly document Wally Byam's International trailer trips getting some details wrong, but is somewhat close to reality. It does express the concept of international trailer travel in an inspiring way, though.Click image for larger version

Thanks Joe for that clarification . . . "inspiring" nonetheless as you say . . . especially for younger folks who may take for granted the ease with our "modern world" facilitates communication and travel.

At the end of each of our roads, is this "modern" really more satisfying to each soul?



Not so sure here . . .
