While the center of membership for the WDC unit is around Washington DC there are members from all over the country, Maine to New Mexico. If you are interested send me a PM and I will send you some info and have one of the officer, not really officers we just had to call them something, get in touch with you.

Ok - I am new to the forum - about a 6 month member - I follow as many of the forums as time permits. I read every point of view then try to develop my opinion. As far as this one - here goes. I was finally contacted by a WBCCI member from my somewhat local area (about 3 hours driving from where I am at). She was very nice and polite and very sincere about wanting me to become a member. But, they only have two local rallies a year. One in the Spring and one in the Fall. They last from Monday to Saturday. My up front money (membership dues) only pay for me being a member of the club and nothing else. I have to pay to go to the rally and then pay for the parking. She was sorry that I could no be there since I had to work and she informed me that the people of the club are either retired or can take off whenever they need to. I asked her if there were any rallies ever planned for a weekend and she said no - all of the people like to be home on Sunday. Well sorry folks - that leaves me out. I work Monday thru Friday - I can get off almost any time I need to. My girlfriend however has to schedule her time off in advance - manager of a store - open 7 days a week. No Red Letters for me. But - I am waiting for my Forum Membership Stickers and I will proudly be displaying my BLUE letters. I will be watching very closely for a forum rally in my area. But, then again, I will have to plan about 1 month in advance (at least) two months would be better.

Once again - I am very pleased with the information on this forum. I know Chief is sincere about his information and he did not sway my decision on joining the WBCCI. I have visited their web site and read just about everything there and I could almost see it was not going to be a club for me (I am not much of a club joining person to begin with). With the information I had read both at this forum, the WBCCI forum and my phone call from the local club member I have made my decision. Unless the rules change to where they are a little more flexiable (weekend rallies) I will never be a member whether I am retired or not.

mwells,

Check out the Heart of Texas Camping Unit, based in the DFW area. Artstream on this forum is a member. Their rallies are Friday to Sunday.

Don't know if they are any closer to you however.

Bill

All WBCCI units are different. We waited 5 years, and had just about given up, before finding one that met our needs! Because it is a two-day (or more) drive to attend our unit's rallies, we actually attend more AirForums rallies.

For us, it's not about the money....although, I think the dues money would be far better spent on a well-managed web site than on IBT activities. It's about spending time with like-minded folks who enjoy their Airstreams and camping!

Thank you, Chief, for sharing your experiences....perhaps it will help others in your area in deciding what unit to join....or avoid!

CMSgt,

I totally agree with your point of view about the WBCCI. The way I look at it, folks like us live and breathe structure...we sure as hell don't need it, while we're trying to relax. I recently found our nametags, from when we were a part of the DVNJ Chapter, Region 2, while cleaning out the garage...I promptly set them on a fire ant hill, poured gasoline on them and lit the match. It was cathartic. I'm thankful I never put the red numbers on our rig.

Summerkid, an elitist and a hottie! I haven't seen you post in a while.

Trailer Travel Here and Abroad

I just bought a copy of "Trailer Travel Here and Abroad" by Wally Byam. All I can say is...WBCCI sure was cool back in the day. And I know I see guys pooh poohing the folks recreating the Capetown to Cairo Caravan. But, Africa wasn't safe in 1959 either. So my hat's off to those folks.

Me, I'm full time employed so no African Caravan for me this year. But, I think stuff like that is just cool beyond words. Ol' Wally had it figured out, and that was his club back then.

Hey, can I attend a forums rally with an Avion? Or would they throw rocks at a silver sister?

Wrong reason for Wally to roll over

Wally just wouldn't like the negative people. He just wouldn't. He was a very positive person, and would find a way to make something better. He would not try to destroy something. There are too many people of little courage to step forward to improve something. It takes little or no thought to be negative or to rip something apart.

You your energies to move forward, instead of backwards.

Shame on all of you that have forgotton how to think positive.
