Considered until

Paul,

We considered but since this is VAC associated, we won't be coming... sorry buddy!

Oh Rob, this is just a wonderful get together, and we want to be part of Finn's first Airstream trip, by then he will be 4 weeks old and definitely time to hit the road. I hope you will reconsider.

Rob, don't do that to your family

Rob,

FYI, this is actually my family’s vacation that we had start doing back a couple of years ago. As a member in the WDCU, I was asked to write up something for the news letter. I wrote up a story of how our family went to Myrtle Beach over Christmas and had such a “GREAT” time. Last year, people asked if I was going back once again to Myrtle Beach, the answer was “Yes”, others thought it too was a great idea and joined us. Last year we had about 5 other trailers including my sister sleeping in the back of her van. We all had a great time, with no plans, other than Virginia’s birthday dinner, which I cook.

I was asked, once again this year, if I was going to Myrtle Beach by your WDCU leader, the answer once again, “YES”. I was ask if I would like to host the rally, I said, it’s more of a family vacation for us, but yes, I would host “The Rally that’s not really a Rally”.

In a effort to share the fun we have during that week with others and to give people a reason to get their trailers out one last time before winter really sets in, I thought, lets make it “MORE” than a WDCU Rally, “MORE” than a VAC Rally, but open it to anyone and everyone that wants to join. My sister is showing up this year in an SOB, I don’t care, she like others are there to have fun. She is surprising Virginia by bringing Virginia’s 7 and 10 year cousins (boy 7 , girl 10)

Rob, if “YOU” want to keep your family sitting up there in Upstate New York in the cold during the week of Christmas right after your wife gave birth to your forth son in the freezing cold instead of giving your family the chance to ride their bikes on the beach, play in the sand, show off the new son, give joy to my daughter by letting her see and ride bikes with your sons, because of the simple thing of me saying this was a joint WDCU-VAC rally (Which if you look in the VAC news letter or the web site, there’s no mention of this rally) and the fact that you are trying to prove a point, I’m sorry!

If you don’t want to or can not come down, I understand, you got a bunch on your plate. But don’t use the excuse of this whole VAC thing as the reason not to join us. I’ll be sure to tell Virginia the reason why you could not bring your family down, (I’m sure she’ll understand!). Don’t take something away from your family Rob over something like this.

Better yet, I’ll have Virginia give you a call and you can explain to her the reason, (I wish you luck with that one, because you know she’s smarter than you and I put together).

Or, if you don’t want to come, please send Zoe and the Boys, I’m sure we can find room for her and the boys in my sisters SOB with two side outs!

Hope you change your mind.

Just heard from Airstream Pete - he and his gal will be in Myrtle from 12/26-12/28. That give me one raucous night to drink some whiskey with my WBCCI godfather.

We had one more sign up today, Kim/Danee and the boys from the WDCU.

We also had one drop out, Bob T our Region 1 Past Prez has had to cancel on us, our prayers are with your wife and you in hopes of a speedy recovery. If there's anything we can do for your wife, let us know.

Can't come now!

Paul,

We love the snow! This time of year up here is merry! Snow toys abound! Sledding down the hills galore - hot cocoa - mmmmmm!

Now that I've departed the WBCCI all together, I'm going to just kick back for a while Paul - and doing things just as us, as a family, my boys will really appreciate that... yes, we'll miss you guys tons! But I've stepped away for a reason - a principal that my boys understand as their dad has some pretty strong values. I'd rather invest with Madoff than give more $$ to the WBCCI leaders.

I know you all will have a great time.. but dress warm - Dec 26 high of 49, low of 40.. not exactly bike riding weather my friend. See you down the road!

Rob

Those temps ARE bike riding temps. Hopwever, they are NOT swimming temps. Although this year I do want to attempt the Polar Bear club. Last year Sonia was the only one brave enough to take the plunge.

Those temps are perfect campfire temps. We will be huddling close to the campfire and propane heaters. We will be Airstreaming!

Rob,

You know, I’ve always supported you in everything dealing with the WBCCI, which will not change. I unfortunately only get so much time off each year to spend with my family and friends. Since I’m no longer a “work from home guy” I spend many hours away from my family and friends. The little time that I do have, I try and shove everything together, family, friends, down time for myself, etc… that’s why “EVERY” vacation my family has taken since Virginia was born has been at a WBCCI/WDCU rally. Virginia gets to see her friends, MaryKim gets to spend adult time with other’s and I get to hang with the boys for a few days drinking a beer and talking a bunch of crap that will never amount to anything. All of the crap with the WBCCI and the VAC is just that “CRAP”.

For us, it is a common place that my family has found many new friends and many people that we “TRULY” care about. As you remember, I was tearful at the East Coast Rally when I talked about you, our family mourned over the lost of “Brother Bill” last year and we are concerned about the health of some of those in the WDCU. This would have never happened if we had not joined the WBCCI/WDCU.

I personally could not give a rats-a** about the WBCCI. I want to spend time with you and your wife, have my daughter play with your boys (we all laugh when asked, Where Virginia? Oh, in the trailer with the “Baker Boyz”, will only be funny a few more years) and hangout with some people I care about and enjoy spending time with. If we don’t get to see you at Myrtle Beach, that’s OK, We plan to come up to the Baker Bash, I just like to see you guys more than once a year and I only have so much time off.

I know, I’m not going to change your mind. But I do want you to know, my family feels blessed the WBCCI/WDCU has brought our families together; you know we love you, Zoe and the boys. Please don’t let the dislike for the WBCCI pull you away from the people that have come to know and love you.

Paul, well said, no one could say it better.

Life is too short, trust me, WAY too short, to discount or alienate friends for the sake of something as trivial as "a club".

I am so VERY thankful for the friends that I have made from my association with the WBCCI/WDCU. Indeed, many of them have in essence become family.

In the end when you boil down the ore and all the crap that goes with it, what remains is the gold. The gold is in the relationships.
