Sadly, I discovered the evil weapon "food" and I progressed rapidly through the body building stage into body bulging. Sigh!

Airstream, WBCCI Written Exposure

We have Rich Luhr to thank for putting it all together. Airstream Life is comprehensive about topics that we all enjoy reading. The past, the present and the future. On the Airstream Life's website you have current update info, plus information that is so numerous that it can't all be published in one issue.

Having read "the Caravanner" in the 50's and onward, the Blue Beret, and magazine articles, each fullfilling their respective requirements, Airstream Life is now bridging the information gap.

Today the Blue Beret provides the Club information so dearly needed to keep the WBCCI members tuned in. Rich Luhr's Airstream Life gives us the Airstream, and Airstreamer's news.

Thank you Rich!

Wally's Birthday

On the 4th of July, Wally's birthday was always celebrated. It seems to be a Byam tradition. My Mother also had her birthday celebrated on Caravans. Her birthday was the 8th of August.

The first international rally was held in 1958. But Wally's birthday was celebrated on schedule. The International Rallies were specifically held in June/July to celebrate the Birth of the United States, and Wally's birthday.

The July 1st Caravan was the first one to Western Canada. Wally's birthday was celebrated in Calgary.

Thumbs up

Summer 08 issue was in my mail box today. I have only read a few of the articles, but it's another great issue. Topics include Burning Man, Squarestreams, Geocaching and Cajun Food. The article I had to read first was an interview with Dale "Pee Wee" Schwamborn.

Great job by Rich and his staff!

Got my very first copy today. Yip skips, it looks like I'll have some quality reading for over the Canadian long weekend.

Surprise! Splashed down the drive for the mail yesterday and found the new issue of Airstream Life Somehow, this drear spring has shoved thoughts of Airstreams and camping to the back shelf of my mind, but now...Wow! First the magazine, then overnight plans to seize the day and take Gypsy on the road for a few days, and now, a seven day forecast with NO rain and temps beginning in the 70's and climbing to the 80's. It's been a long time coming, and I do believe Airstream Life in the mailbox began it all! Bennett Springs, here we come! ~G

I found the Spring 2008 issue on the newsstand, coincidentally about a month before we made the trip to the local dealer.

A/S Life was honestly what motivated us to go ahead and buy. The range of article topics, different written styles, genuine interests displayed in the magazine - all helped sell us on the culture as a well as a known top rate product. Funny how one of the articles was about convincing your hesitant significant other about getting into the whole A/S experience.

The onboard magazine rack now has four back issues loaded, and they'll provide some nice leisure when we're stuck inside duing the rainy times. The only bummer is that this top rate publication is a quarterly. Can't rush quality...
