This was supposed to be a $1.6 billion project with vacation homes, a resort hotel, golf course, and the second largest indoor water park in the country. Unfortunately, construction began one year before the great recession of 2007, and the project was abandoned in 2009. The failure of this project saw that two individuals were sentenced to 5 year jail terms for committing bank fraud.<

Every once in a while I like to get away from the serious stuff I publish here and insert a story that I find during my research that is off subject.

I found this 1941 Expedition following the route of the not yet existing Pan American Highway (at the time) to be something that I felt many of my readers would like. Do yourself a favor. Take an hour off and join these” three damn fools”, as their friends called them, on an Adventure that is truly amazing. . Your Editor Dennis Crenshaw

The Richardson Pan American Expedition


By Jim Benjaminson


“The Richardson Pan-American Highway Expedition is perhaps one of the greatest automotive stones of all time. In scope and magnitude it surpasses those pioneer automobilists that first crossed the United States at the turn of the century The Richardson Expedition crossed not only this country but encompassed the area spanning two continents-crossing trackless wilderness, endless mud. un-chartered territory and obstacles of every sort that Mother Nature could throw against them. The men of the expedition, Sullivan C Richardson, Arnold Whitaker and Kenneth C. Van Hee were many times called “Three Damn Fools” by friends and foes alike. It is a title that was perhaps fitting, considering the almost insurmountable odds against their succeeding -but succeed they did -and now that title is worn proudly- The Richardson Pan American Highway Expedition was perhaps the last great automotive adventure undertaken on the face of this earth”. . . .

Just when you thought you had it all! ~ Amazing Stories Vol 1 # 1 April 1, 1926 (PDF File)


















                                     No matter how many of us will admit it, if you are into the kind of stuff we here at THEI scour the internet to post, and if you came up in the ’50s you probably started your “adventure” reading with one of the many pulp magazines that were available. And more than likely that pulp was Amazing Stories.  From the start in April 1926 until well into the ’50s pulp magazines ruled.  Whether you remember the pulps or not I’m sure you’ll enjoy this Volume 1 Issue#1 from 64 years ago. How could you pass up writers like, H.G. Wells, Jules Verne, Edger Allen Poe and many more all in one magazine, and all for 25 cents!  And now 64 years later we get it for free! Neat. . . EDITOR
