When we tow our Airstream from New Boston, NH to Fort Lauderdale, FL it takes us 2 1/2 days of hard driving: 10 or 11 hours per day for the first 2 days and then a few hours on the 3rd day. This is pushing it from my point of view - I guess I'm old.....

If you are a part of the Wagon Wheels Caravan AND a VAC Member participating in the parade into International, please make a note that you need a reservation for TWO NIGHTS when you request your confirmation number from me.

Thanks!

Woohoo! Thanks!

P.S. Nice photo! I always wondered how those stickers were made so that the sticker decal peeled free from the backing. Who would have thought that the decals were laid out first with the remainder of the backing placed on afterwards.

It's coming together!

All,

If you have not signed up for the NEU/WDCU caravan to International down the east coast of the USA, time is starting to run out. As you may or may not know, we will be staying in local and state parks that fill fast early in the season with people that live local to them. If you are thinking about going or are planning on going and have not yet make your plans, I'd do so soon. We'd hate to see some of you that want to join us not be able too. Also, you don't have to do the whole caravan. Meet us along the way if you want to. It appears we will have many vintage units, some new and some vintage tow cars to boot!! If you have any questions feel free to contact me or Nancy Platt. Hope to see ya there!!

We just finished getting our trailer road-worthy. I sent you an email with some questions about the caravan. Thanks.

I received it and "you have mail"!

This caravan is designed as an "express" caravan in the sense that it is shorter than the average caravan which typically runs 10 days. But this caravan is not an "express" caravan from the perspective of driving time -- we will not be taking the highway and driving as fast as we can to reach our next destination.

We plan to drive mostly on secondary roads as many of the caravan participants are driving vintage tow vehicles! Taking secondary roads has the advantage of seeing more sights along the way.
