Demographics Question for Pee-Wee...

Demographics Question for Pee-Wee...

Pee-Wee, You have been very generous with your sharing of early WBCCI times and I hope you will be so once again. I have a question that only you (maybe a few others) can answer.

The early WBCCI events & personalities you were involved with – which appears to be quite extensive – could you tell me who these people were?

I’m asking about them at the time they were active and not so much interested in names but backgrounds.

Were they middle class, upper-class, idle rich?

How were they able to put their affairs on hold for extended times?

How old were they -- in their 20’s, 30’s, 60's?

Did they have families – did they bring them along to the events?

Were they US Americans or internationals (I seem to remember some reference you made to traveling with Brits).

Any minorities?

Did they feel they were on some sort of mission -- to promote camping, Airstreams, wonders of the modern age, something else or did they see this simply as a long rolling party?

How much pomp and circumstance went on at those events?

If a unit or car broke down, how much hands-on repairs was done by the participants?

I realize life was quite different then but I am trying to overlay, in my mind, the original group and the existing group.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

Herb
