Back a couple years ago a teenage girl named Stephanie who just happened to have a Father who was an astronaut and who just happened to be on the Space Station decided she needed to let her Dad know just how much she missed him.

So with a little help from some friends at a car company she sent her Dad a message in a big way!

Her father is a keen photographer and likes to take pictures of the earth when he is floating in space. Stephanie thought she could use his hobby to send him a message from back on earth.

The car company used eleven sedans to draw the message on the land in Nevada’s Delamar Dry Lake, that read ‘Steph [hearts] you!’ using coordinates and a helicopter.

Her father took a picture of the image from space to show his daughter that her plan had worked.

Measuring 5,556,411.86 square metres or 59,808,480.26 square feet, the Guinness World Record has now declared it the largest tire track image ever. – Daily Mail

As the story goes Stephanie drew the original note on a piece of paper before it was ‘transcribed’ to a dry lake bed. There you go…more interesting history about the Delamar Dry Lake Bed.

So all you Dad’s out there…what do you think? Pretty creative for a 13 year old girl! She clearly loves her Dad a lot! A story worth sharing.
