Go West Young Man, Go West By Gordon Bryan With production of WWlI air- craft, no longer a factor the spring of 1946 found Fran and I seven years into our marriage, with three children and faced with a decision of whether to stay in St. Louis where I had a fairly secure position in aircraft landing gear Engineering Design with Mc- Donnel Aircraft., or to head west. We were strongly pulled in oppo- site directions. I had felt a strong affinity for the West Coast since the age of five when my parents,'sister, two brothers and I packed ourselves, along with camping gear into a brand new 1921Studebaker--Big 6 touring car for a leisurely trip to southern California and re- turn, over roads unpaved and identified by colored bands on telephone poles rather than by highway numbers. That glorious trip--a story for another time--must have im- printed in me not only a love for the west but wanderlust in gen- eral. Also, during the winter of 1946, I had suffered a severe bout with pneumonia that kept me off work for five weeks and our family doctor had suggested that, with my history of respira- tory problems, a drier climate would be beneficial. To top off our reasons for a move, we were simply not fond of the hot-hu- mid summers and cold-slushy winters of St. Louis. On the other side of the bal- ance were considerations like the fact that aircral companies on the West Coast were laying offengineers, housing availabil- ity was at a postwar low, family and friends would be far away and such a move would be a little scary. When it comes to a contest between prudence (some might say good sense) and youthful confidence (or overconfidence), the latter is likely a winner--as it was in this case. So we started making plans. In order to beat the anticipated housing short- age we bought a slightly used 27 foot (considered large at that time) travel trailer. Fran had heard a number of bad stories about California and insisted she would not live there so we compromised on Tucson, Arizona, as our destination. We knew that Henry, our '41 Ford sedan tow vehicle, would be CHAMBE00 0 :OMMERU lb Everyone enjoyed the Black Bart Festival held recently on the boulevard in Cloverdale.
