The wife and i went down last night and wandered around a bit. Most folks were really friendly. We had been there about 45 mins when a older(obviously) couple stopped us to ask if we "needed help". Understandable considering the break ins. We relayed that we were indeed AS owners and were just having a look. They perked up at that point and for the next few minutes were were evading recruitment attempts.

That was a lot of AS in one place. Too bad it isnt like it was in the glory days of the club.

Enjoying it immensely . Where do we sign up for the RBCCI membership? Will there be a decal to go alongside our AIR sticker?
Either hat works for us. Will they be worn only as official protocal, or can we sport them anytime/ anywhere? Man, I want one of them big medals ( do they come in gold? ). I'm ready to place my order .

Be a good boy , but have fun at the Silver Falls R. just the same.

Thumbs up Great virtual rally!

Great thread 2air, what fun! That pirate flag is great!
I wonder if any of this will be featured in Airstream Life? Shouldn't there be a section in the magazine on the rbcci?

heeeeeeeeeeeeee's baaaaaaaaaaaaack..........

hi porky, denellen, sista, van, jdl, rebel, hooked' and others who still want the scoop from the rally.....

-hey hooked'......nice rhymn' isn't it fun!
-denellen your p'diddy chain and rb are on order....pick'em up at the next rally!
-jdl.......sorry we didn't meet.... and i went up to tigard on the 30th! hope 2 meet you soon! nice pix also....


while the 49th wbcci int is over.......
it's not history yet.....

i've still got some reporting to do.......

let's take a look at the most unique newer trailer......
that came to the rally.....
but couldn't stay at the rally.....

these folks were just passin' through.....
from florida to seattle....
as members of a florida unit of wbcci,
they hoped to spend ONE night
on the site.....
no such luck

since they were not registered, they were not allowed to stay.

h3ll, they could have been allowed to at least boondock......but noooooooo.
there just wasn't any space left.....
or right
in the salem fair grounds....

the 2nd photo was shot.....
as the parking committee,
escorted them off the lot...
so much for courtesy parking
seems flower power isn't what it used 2 be.....

cheers

the most important committe.....

i learned there are over 320 different job descriptions for the international..
and as many committees......
some years not all are used......
while new ones are formed as needed.....

the tank flush crew...
is by far the most important...
because everyones got2go
and all the 'go' has got to be moved...
at 16.50$ per flush.....
that's right each and every time....

i talked with some folks who only got dumped once....
the folks in my row got dumped every 3-4 days
perhaps that says something about how full of it my row was....
or was it just me?

anyway this was the go2guy.....
he said.....
"we are #1 at #2!"
he also volunteered to wear the rbcci beret.....
but given where his head had been...
i opted just to snap his committee hat...
with a rose......

and the main tool of his craft......
connecting us all at the rally......
regardless of political views.....
or titles,
or units,
all bow down to the stinky slinky....


cheers

here is a view of his crew at work.....
on the far left is the actual worker,
with the traile owner hovering over...
then the learners

while on the far right,
witht the 'red' ribbon....
the committee chairperson wb big wig.....
note the gloves and clean white shirt....
it was hard for me to get a photo with him in it...

this was as near as he ever got to the action.....
what would have happened with an impaction?

cheers

job completed, doc the retired vet in a bambi II,
explains to the young ones.....
'how we dumped in the old days'

one of the crew exits,
for the next trailer

and his attire struck me....
long black socks and shorts are common enough,
but 1 glove?
was he entering the michael jackson look alike contest?
or did he just get one hand dirty?

also his tee shirt is my favorite for the entire rally....
can u make out the messsage?

i want one......

other folks wearing the rbcci.......hat.

the folks from indiana,
who tolerated me being camped near by,
were a past president and his first lady.....
and a current president and his first lady

they were absolutely friendly
and insisted on showing support for the rbcci,
by wearing their berets......
and gold chains.....

first ladies show that there is still some controversy
as the alternative hat still has it's following......

the indiana unit is first rate!
and proof that some wb members still know how to have fun......
have fun on the maple leaf caravan and happy anniversary.....

signs, signs, everywhere signs.......

with the rbcci movement in full swing
among the company leaders, wb officers and vintage folks......
i decided to launch the grass roots effort......
in the rank and file.

for this i'd need a sign......

one of the busiest committees was the sign makers.....

here is the sign for their door.....

apparently they haven't coordinated with the tape/stick'em committee yet.....

that blue stuff is not protocol......

cheers

some of their work........

the rally had showers,
open from 8-4pm....
4 stalls in each.....
for 1800 people or so.....

the women's had a sign.....
the men's did not.....

we are better at finding things.....
or skipping showers altogether....

cheers
