HEADING TO CALIFORNIA. 

A somewhat larger Caravan than usual set out for California. For the first and only time the wives were included, and the trip out was something like an extended family vacation, with conventional tourist excursions and home movies taken by Joe Esposito. Included are the Espositos, the Billy Smiths, the Schillings, the Gambills, the Lackers and Charlie Hodge, with Elvis at the wheel of the Greyhound and a trail of cars behind.
