I'll echo the peeps. The first unit we joined didn't have a ton of rallies so it was hard to get a sense for things but we switched to the NEU after joining them on a couple rallies last year and they are just the best folks to hang out with! I mean - they created a rally called "Diggin the Dead" which included both tie-died clothing and more importantly, an education on the historic gravesites and burial practices of old New England in Freeport, ME at a gorgeous campground on the bay.

Unbelievably helpful folks who speed up the learning curve and help you have a great time. We do plenty of camping ourselves which is wonderful and knowing we'll see our NEU friends at some rallies is also wonderful.

The caravans. And the people. And the Airstream parks. And Travelers Rest Resort (It was Airstreamers who built it). My retirement has been much different and better than I was looking forward to thanks to the friends we have made in WBCCI and in thanks to the caravans. Alaska, Newfoundland, Rockies, Southwest, Cajan, Blue Ridge Parkway, Southeast coast, and Taste of Carolina. Plus local rallies, TCP, and a lot and Airstream parked at Travelers Rest. Headed west again this summer. We will know half or more of the people on the caravan from previous trips. Caravan Cody to Arcata and then fish and camp on our own on our way home. Great combination for a trip.

The people, and now that I'm retired, the caravans. I was a new Airstreamer, and new to trailering when we joined in 2007, and the people have taught me so much. I'm trying to pay that forward now that I have several years of experience under my belt. For those of us retired, the caravans are a great value. You can't take trips like that for less.

Hmmmmm ... can we get back to you on that ... when we were a number (before the haircut), the best part was meeting some of the people.

The friends we have made all over the US and Canada. The worst part is deciding from all the rallies and activities. This May we will have to decide between the crab feed with the Washington unit, touring the Redwoods with the Oregon unit, the fishing caravan with the BC unit in Canada or get the yard ready for summer. WB members use their Airstreams.
I also agree with Janet, the Berets are cool

I love the WBCCI affiliated Airstream parks! Come visit us out in the Angelina National Forest on Lake Sam Rayburn at the Texas Airstream Harbor! I find it very cool that we have these highly unique places like this around. The SOB's have nothing that comes close to WBCCI or the Airstream parks.

What to LOVE about WBCCI? You can be assured itís a Platonic love relationship.
We had a difficult period where it took on a life of itís own. But things are better now.

Like my Airstream trailer--after awhile things donít work as intended.
They needed to be fixed or replaced with new parts and technology.

Membership in WBCCI is better than nothing.
But nothing is better than eternal happiness.
Therefore, WBCCI is better than eternal happiness.

WBCCI membership

We purchased our 2009 Classic last fall and have only just started doing weekend shake downs so we are more aware of the trailer and truck funtions before we head out to the WBCCI convention in Gillette Wyoming at the end of June. We hope to meet many people, enjoy new friendships and learn a great deal more about Airstreams before heading East and South for the rest of the year.
