OK, thanks to ALL of you for your thoughts Dan, Wee Fred, Mike the Rich Guy, Roger the Fixit & Marylou (who must be very tolerant).

Here's what I learned from your posts:
1. Airstreamers have fun, especially if they are together.
2. Occasionally, Airstreamers have been known to join WBCCI to enhance the fun, although no one seems to know how they do it.
3. Airstreamers quite often suffer from schizophrenia.

I LOVE this forum!

No doubt about it, we are a crazy bunch! If you are looking for more info on the WBCCI, I would like to suggest that you check out their website. It is www.WBBCI.org. Michigan is part of region 4 and has 3 units to choose from. Dan has also started a new virtual unit that he has provided a link for called NOVA. I am a member of the Metro-Detroit unit and an associate member of NOVA. I also just hosted the Metro-Detroit forums rally last weekend. If you would like to try out the WBCCI I would like to invite you to one of our rallies. Our September rally is the 10th-12th in Ortonville, MI. Our October rally is the 1st-3rd in Grass Lake, MI. Let me know if you have any questions or would like more rally info.

Fred
My sir name is Roger. Mike was what my grandfather called me and I have a small engine shop and I Fixit when I can.
Evidently you didnt read any of the some 1200 posts that were here about the Detroit-Metro Rally. Because it didnt have those four letters on it you were not intrested.
And you do have it correct Fred WITHOUT hardly any orgaization at all. Alot of people all pulling together sharing the load and makin it happen.
I know you just cant understand.
End of Rant.

I am not sure who the crazy one's are anymore....? Too much aluminum in the air...

The crazy one's are always the most fun at the campfire though.

I belive ALL clubs and organizations have merit. To each is own and I cant say enough good things about the AirMidwest club! They put on a great rally and seem to have a lot of fun with lots of organization. I'm also looking at the 4 cornners unit to join. They are a WBCCI club that seems to have a lot of fun. Also is there a TAC orgaization in KC?

WBCCI serves a need. TCT serves a different need. TAC serves yet another need.

All this negativity is getting me down. It's so bipartisan and not getting anyone out in their Airstream and using it as it was intended.

Wally Byam would be ashamed at how some people are talking at each other, instead of going out, exploring, taking in new cultures and exposing themselves to differing opinions.

I prefer to focus on what we have in common - this spirit of adventure inside us - not the divisive things.

*sigh*

Let me just say thanks from a woman who had a blow out some years ago and the only person who stopped was a truck driver. Another truck driver had radioed back that I was in trouble and he stopped!

African Caravan & Wally's Dream

First I want to say that in all honestly, I don't know enough about the situation to judge. We've read what's been posted in the threads just trying to figure out what's going on. I am sure that everyone has a good reason for his/her stance....and I am not trying to offend anyone.

Secondly, we are NOT members of the WBCCI and may not ever be. Not necessarily because of the politics on my account(not speaking for the hubby), more the lack of true family events(at least that I could find anywhere within a 5 hour drive) or conflicts with schooling. Young kids here and the last thing we want is for them to be stuck without friends their age to play with.

The funny thing is my husband and I watched the TV show of the African Caravan on Youtube the other night. It was amazing to watch the clips of them working together to get through the muddy roads, nearly running out of water, and the desert that took 11 days plus lots of ingenuity to get through. After watching it, I think Wally would probably be disappointed in how all this behavior reflects on his wonderful dream.

I think that might be us! We began our life with an Airstream in 2003 and promptly became a member of WBCCI in 2004. We are proud to join the ranks of the WBCCI's newest and most progressive internet based unit. Of course members will enjoy rallies together but members will also have the additional benefit of meeting together online and keeping current with one another through out the year regardless of their geographical proximity to each other or the typical season and weather constraints and down time of the Midwest winters. The new flag looks pretty good too. Oh did I mention the president held the most unique rally in a wildlife preserve and there are plans to do it again!? This unit thinks out of the box folks and is one to be watched, and joined!

James congratulations on your new Airstream Tradewind. You are definitely going to like all the possibilities, challenges, adventures and fellow Airstreamers you meet from here on in. Welcome to the forums.

Nobody says that you have to be one thing. I belong to all 3 of the clubs you mentioned above and a few more also. I/we bring ourselves and our fun, friendship, comraderie, to all things regardless of club name. I can pull into anyone of the 3 clubs rallies and see people and trailers that I have helped work on and those that have helped me. We do focus on what we have in common, it just seems as though alot of people around here forget that what we truly have in common is each other! The diviseness comes from those that feel threatened from those that don't.


P.S. you have the best doughnuts in the world down there!

We are in Oregon- when we check the WBCII 10 web page, though, it comes up as a bad link. Is there an active page for the Oregon unit communicates? thanks!

How embarassing! I mis-typed. It should be www.wbcci.org. Sorry about that!
