Wally’s Creed, Part II

Airstream trailers have been seen all over the world. Caravans traveled through North America, Central America, Cuba, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and from Singapore across Asia all the way to Portugal (including Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union)! In Africa, the Caravan crossed roads, rough terrain, washboards, quagmires, and even endured blinding dust. But every night, you could find a bath, shower, dinner, and a clean bed after a long and difficult day. Today, Wally’s promise is just as active today as it was on earlier Caravans.

I read about the Boer War, the Kimberly Diamond Mine, Kruger National Park, Dr. Livingstone, the Tutsi and Maasai peoples, the Ethiopian emperor Haile Selassie, the pyramids, and Victoria Falls. In 1959, Wally Byam


The Caravan Enters Turkey

Planning for the African Caravan had been completed. It had been decided that the Caravan would travel from Cape Town to Cairo, Egypt, then through the Middle East and on to Europe. The Middle East was intriguing. The area that had been home to ancient civilizations that flourished, rich cultural traditions with wide-rippling historical impacts, centuries of nations at war, and religions that spread all over the world. Wally Byam had brought the Caravan back into ancient times, when Egyptians, Assyrians, and Romans ruled the world. When the Caravan reached the northern region of Asia Minor, we were ready to
