“To Pee Wee Who accompanied me on my first and last Caravan.” Wally Byam

When Wally's book, Trailer Travel Here and Abroad was published he autographed a copy for me. At the time it was great to receive the book and to have him sign it for me. Only after his death did his remembrance in the book hit home. It became true, I was on his first and last Caravan. 1951 to Mexico and Central America, then in 1959 to Africa. Thank you Wally!

I have taken pictures from copies of photos, slides etc. and spruced them up in Power Point and then saved them as JEPG's – Dale Schwamborn
