The 40 Horse Hitch - 2006
Now sitting in a barn beside the train shed, the Schlitz Bandwagon is 35 years old. The carvings are showing various stages of rot. The last Bandwagon ever built in the United States remains in storage.
I performed from 1973 to 1995 with a couple years off in between. I did an aerial cradle act for three years, low wire as a clown, trained llamas, ponies, then lions and tigers for 15 years. I am now a firefighter, a member of the Circus Historical Society and an author of several circus and carnival related subjects.
