The trip into the Sahara was more dangerous and life threatening than our other trips. However; it would not have been possible without our self- contained VW Camper. Seeing the unique wildlife in the Sahara was a strong incentive. Frequently the only road markers were barrels and most of them were covered with blown sand. We traveled in convoy with three German students in the required areas. They were a little wild and left us in their dust. We needed our compass to navigate. At one point the Germans went over a bank and lost all their battery fluid. At times; tracks went in every direction causing some confusion. There were frightening incidences; but fortunately we survived. We hope you enjoy traveling with us. -Ted and Emma

From 1950-51 they were graduate students at Pennsylvania State University where they earned their Masters Degrees. From 1951-54 they worked in the Ann Arbor School System; Emma as School Nurse and Ted as a Biology Teacher. Graduate work was completed at the University of Michigan; Ann Arbor - 1951-54. During 1954-55 a ten month camping tour through Europe and Tunisia; North Africa was done on a 150cc BSA motorcycle. Graduate work in various fields of Biological Science was concluded through the years at Hopkins Marine Station in California; Arizona State University in Tucson where Ted received his PhD in Zoology; and at the Pennsylvania State University; State College where his thesis dealing with the occurrence and distribution of aquatic insects was completed. IN 1965 Ted resigned his position as Assistant Professor of Biology at Georgia Tech. in order to make a ten month camping trip from Cape Town; South Africa through Central Africa; to Mombasa; Kenya with Emma. VW Camping trips were also made to Morocco; The Sahara; Lapland; Norway; and Turkey. It is the sincere hope of the authors that our six month camping trip through; and stories about; Tunisia will instill genuine curiosity and respect for the variety of peoples and cultures that have evolved throughout Tunisia over the past several thousand years. Emma & Ted.
