Baffling, I Say
I found out about the airship myself by accident. I was doing some research about a train robbery and was reading old issues of the Reno area newspapers. I didn't find out much about the train robbery, but I came across this story about this mysterious aiship that was terrorizing Nevada farmers. Boy that wasn't what I was expecting. Over the years, the more I tried to learn about it, the more baffling it got. Hopefully, I can deliver a presentation that won't baffle the audience.
One interesting thing is they always ask if you need anything for Powerpoint, etc. Not really. There aren't any pictures of it. Cameras in 1897 weren't real good at photographing distant moving aerial objects in a time before aircraft were invented.
