"Visitors to the Land of Velocity usually stop at one of the Gypsy souvenir caravans for a Sir Junior of Earnhardt cap or a Sir Carl of Edwards T-Tunic. Working at the Smith Clan wagon is Stephen's youngest daughter, Lizzy, with a dreamy look in her eyes.

Lizzy is anticipating twilight -- When supper is done, torches are lit in the encampment and she will mount the family's Gypsy Cart Horse to joust with the men and boys. A far cry from the official Royal Tournaments, these jovial camp jousts are none the less spirited and competitive.

Maiden Lizzy is proving to be both talented and fearless in a contest usually reserved for the lads. Recognizing her passion and talent, Stephen and the entire Smith Clan cheer her on like the champion she dreams of someday becoming."
