Not very likely unless abused. The gray water disposal should be well spread out over time and there should be no more than a damp spot for a short time at most on the ground where it is dispersed.

Many I'Rallies over the years have used this technique and the only result was that the grass in the field was a bit better watered.

It does depend upon water conservation in usage and keeping residues and crud out of the wash water but these are things most WBCCI and Airstream types have as good habits, anyway.

Just don't do like the guy at Salem did - wash clothes and take shower then try to dump 50 gallons or more in a field all at once.

The law in Oregon restricted gray water dumping (strange because it is so PC and recycling gray waste is also PC) but the newbie instructions didn't follow this and said the honey truck wouldn't take gray water. I hope the documentation for the GA I'Rally is better done.

In August, I paid for going to International but never received a confirmation or other notification from WBCCI. Does anyone know when I should expect to receive this information? If so, do you know what I will receive?

If all continues according to the usual schedule, International Rally documents are usually mailed to those pre-registered sometime in late January, or early February. If I finally make the decision to attend the 2007 International Rally, I likely won't pre-register until after the first of the year. Unlike the past 10 plus years, I am not at all certain whether I will attend or not as I do not cope well with the high humidity levels.

I am still in something of a quandry over whether to attend as the International is only about one long day's drive from my home-base. For the past ten years, the International Rally has been the highlight of my summer's travels; and the thought of missing the rally isn't one that I enjoy.

We'll Be There

This will be our first international rally. It's just 2 hours down the road so we can't miss it. We have not explored much of central GA so the location is fine with us.

I don't like the heat/humidity much either so I signed us up for the 30 amp service. I figure if worse comes to worse I just chill out with the AC during the day if needed. Riding around in the car and seeing the sights won't be too bad. Museums and other historic sights are usually AC'd so I figure I can tolerate the weather.

We signed up toward the end of August. Hoping that we get a sight with full hook-up. I may decide to volunteer for the parking committee or something else if that gets us the sewer connection.

We're looking forward to seeing all that aluminum.

A lot has been made to do about the heat and humidity. If you are from the north of the Mid-Atlantic States, arid part of the country, or from the mountains it will probably be an issue.

But if you are just a couple of hours away, you should be ok. It shouldn't be much different than your summertime heat and humidity in August. Of course for many, that is the time of year to stay in doors under the A/C during the day anyway.

Hi Tom,there's not as many as there used to be.Some approximate numbers,

in the 1970's-1980's....3000 to 4000

in the early 1990's.......2000 to 2500

in the late 1990's..........1500 to 2000

recently...................800 to 1500


This should give you an approximate idea

IIRC, last year's International had 1,000-1,100 or so and that was the best in years, but that was because of the controversial vote on changing the name of the WBCCI to something else. Even the name change changed when it came time to vote so there was some confusion then. Anyway, I would think there will probably be a high attendance again in '07 as the issue isn't completely dead yet.

Lately, the location has played a role in how many trailers attend. When it's centrally located it is able to draw more people from both coasts. When it is either far east or west, the numbers seem to be lower.

However, anytime there is 1000 or so Airstreams in one place...that's a lot of aluminum!!! A pretty awesome sight!

If I didn't have plans already for that week and could rearrange my schedule and could go to both places, I'd go just because it is so close to home. However, being younger with young children I don't think it would have much to offer and wouldn't be worth it at this juncture in my life.

I am in my forties too...I enjoy it! I don't take in all the seminars & programs, but I've never been disappointed in the ones I do select to particiapte in. And just hanging out with all the terrific folks from all over the country is a blast! I wouldn't dismiss it that readily...but if you have other plans that can't be changed...oh well, next time!

One of the best things about the International Rally is being able to meet all of the people you know from the Internet.

Me, I am only 60.
