Adventure = (Air + Concrete + Steel)

08 Jul

Tonight’s TTB column addresses a little-known period in postal history.  I know what you’re thinking– what could possibly be more riveting than postal history?

Well, what if I told you this story about little-known period in postal history has all the elements of a grand adventure?

  • A fascinating backstory that stumped even the Smithsonian? Check.
  • The discovery of forgotten historical artifacts? Check.
  • A hike? Check.
  • An acrobatic airplane flight? Check-o-rama.

Here’s a hint:

Check tonight’s Transcript Bulletin for the story.  I’ll repost here on Monday.

    Clint – I enjoyed your information on the directional arrow located above Lake Point. It is always nice to have you searching things out in my part of the vallet. Leonard Garrard says that Les Bolinder was involved with the siting and construcion of the aviation beacon. He was an aviation leader in this area, hence, the Erda Airport is named after him. There are still family members living in the county you could contact for more information about Uncle Les.

      Wow! Thanks for the lead, Colleen. I wonder if Les Bolinder helped with any of the other beacons in the county.
