2016 International Rally 6/28-7/4

I have decided to attend the International rally in 2016 (God willing). I would like to meet as many of you guys there as possible. By that time phase two of my rebuild on the 325LE will be complete. My overheating concern will be gone and I will be able to tow our car with it. We have enjoyed the 325 this summer so far and we have 2 more trips planned through October. Aside from the distraction of buying the 396Xl from Bill Thomas camper sales in MO. most of my time as you know has been devoted to the restoration of the 325. I think all of you guys are great and we are really all doing the same thing. There is enough time between now and then to make these plans work.....it may even be possible to arrange a Classic motorhome section for us all so we can be close. Let me know your feelings. P.S. I was even thinking of a possible rendezvous at Pennwood this fall if anyone is interested.

I'm betting I would fit in better with the burning man crowd wearing my custom aluminum foil anti mind scanning hat than I would with the Airstream Trailer folks. 😄

However, I will make an exception in 2017.

LMAO !!! I need to see a picture of that hat so I can make them for myself, the wife, three kids, and of coarse the dog. We were going to all wear the blue berets but I like the anti-mind probing hat idea better !!!

If enough of you guys come we can all show up at the same time and try to park together. Let me call WBCCI and see what I can find out.

Yes, I think you do have to work this out in advance with WBCCI so the parking crew can be aware of the situation.

One way to meet in advance is to identify a nearby campground that everyone can stay at the night before. That gives you time to meet/greet and organize your group and drive in together. You could simply try this without contacting WBCCI but giving them a heads-up would definitely help.

If a campground doesn't work out, maybe you can identify a shopping center or something else in the area that would have a large parking lot to meet the morning you plan to drive in to the rally. The campground idea definitely gives you more flexibility with people arriving at different times and from different areas.

Danielle and I plan to attend the 2016 rally in West Virginia. At a minimum, we want to demonstrate that rallies in the east are viable as far as attendance. Yes, the rallies out west are interesting for a variety of reasons but there are lots of members on the eastern side of the country and plenty of interesting things to do and see in the Eastern time zone.

Definitely meet up ahead of time to gather and continue in as a caravan. That way you can park together. The 4CU did this for the last International in Farmington, NM this past June. We had 23 rigs coming from all directions so we established 3 prior meeting points, then all proceeded as smaller caravans to meet at a point not too far from the rally site to organize for our final approach... You should work with the caravan and parking committees to let them know when you are coming in and how many of you there are... That way they can be prepared for your arrival and for an area to park together. If you don't do this they cannot usually guarantee a common parking area.

You may like to hang out with the Vintage Airstream Club. You don’t need a vintage trailer to be a member and your (VAC) membership will give you the opportunity to park together. We (VAC) meet at a campground a short distance from the International rally location about 2 weeks prior to going to International. We have a great time together and then some go to International and some go on to other places. I have done this for the past 2 years and it’s a blast. If not for VAC group I would not go to the International Rallies.
You may or may not be surprised but some of these members have been meeting at Burning man for years.
