What do you like about WBCCI?
When I joined the WBCCI in 1995, I quickly learned that I was not a typical member for that time period. At the time, I was in my mid-30s so was quite a bit younger than the average member and I was also single (never married) meaning that my demographics were substantially different from most of the members that I met. I quickly learned that it made little difference how your demographics aligned with the "typical" member; rather it was the love of Airstreaming that formed the bond that created the Airstreaming/WBCCI family.
Over the years, I have missed very few International Rallys and have participated in a number of formal and informal caravans. As a Free Wheeler, caravanning and rallying helped to make me feel like a member of the Airstream family . . . and even now that I have found my soulmate (at 51 years of age no less), we both enjoy Airstreaming and are anxiously looking forward to the coming travel season. Rallys, and the International Rally moreso than most, become the equivalent of family reunions for me as I have no remaining family other than my soulmate.
While the "group" activities of the WBCCI are not for all Airstreamers, I find that having access to the Rallys and Caravans have increased my enjoyment of both of my coaches tremendously.
