Why did Wally Byam get involved with head coverings?
Did the dream of Africa enchant Wally Byam? As a youth did he read Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs or writings by Dr. David Livingstone and Henry M. Stanley? Where Wally’s African aspirations came from were known only to him.
It is now 2013. Today, how do we envision Africa? For many of us, it's a flight into Nairobi and being met at the airport with a hotel bus that whisks us away for an adventure on the Serengeti Plains.
It was 1951, and the Airstream Wally Byam Caravan was traveling to Mexico and Central America. The Glassey brothers, friends of Wally assisting him on the Caravan, were driving along the highway in Mexico. They saw a hungry, frightened, lost puppy.
After several trips south of the border to Mexico and Central America, Wally Byam decided it was time to go north of the border to Canada. The summer of 1954 saw the Airstream Wally Byam Western Canadian Caravan embark on a quest north.

It can be tough to learn to surf, but Airstream can support anything that makes it easier for people to get out and have fun in the outdoors. Stand-up paddle surfing (SUP) is one of those things. Initially developed as a technique for instructors to position themselves for photos, SUP has developed into its own sport, focusing on racing rather than riding the large waves of traditional surfing.
We love it when other companies use and rely on our products. It’s particularly great when the company is one that tries to integrate the Airstream trailer and our philosophy into what they do. Veuve Clicquot is one of those companies.
