I second that Wow and also extend my welcome to the fourms. I look forward to reading your thoughts on Airstreams and the WBCCI here in the forum threads.

So, Dale, how are you at "channeling"? Just kidding, we know Wally and Stella are too busy out camping wherever they happen to be....

I'm sure as a group of over 20,000 members we can overwhelm you with thoughts and requests right at the start.

So, the all important question - are you going to acquire another Airstream and get out and away from that computer? I suspect you'd have a lot of fun hitting the various Forums camp outs.

Take care and glad to have you on board. We are sort of Andy's crew - he's the one who has made this forum possible, with a lot help from the moderators over the years.

Actually, I was speaking from a historical context.

It was a blast having Dale at the FCU Rally in AZ.

His lecture style. (Hi, My name is Dale but call me Pee Wee. Any questions?) was great. Questions led to answers which led to stories which led to more questions and a couple of hours flew by in a wink.

Dale stayed around afterwards and visited and told "other" stories. He had me laughing so hard I thought I was hurting myself,

Dale is one of those folks who's happy inside and it comes out in humor and sadly puns.

He also brought along a trunk load of artifacts and a slide show. I actually saw some blueprints of Wally's build it yourself trailer! The Holy Grail exists and was seen. He had sooo much cool original Wally and Airstream stuff you could not believe it!

After listening to Dale for a night and visiting with him around the campfire I'd go buy an Airstream if I did not have one already This guy can really show you whats it's all about.

Would somebody please give Dale an Airstream so he could travel around and share this stuff with everyone?

Well I am sorely sorry I missed out on that fun! Yes Free PeeWee!! If Sandra Bullock can have an Airstream than shame on Airstream for not sending Pee Wee on the road in style! He's worth his weight in Gold to we Airstreamers. Where's that petition?...

Do you have a link for pictures of the rally?

People came from all over, what a showing! Richard and Jan really know how to throw a rally. Enjoyed the pictures and all that sunshine and all those smiles. My favorite picture? Dale's caption and picture with the alternative headwear, "And the curtain falls on the last act of Peep Show."

I have traveled on Caravans to Europe 1956, Eastern Canada 1955 and 1957, Africa 1959. I have scouted two Caravans Africa 1959 and Eastern Canada 1961.

I have been to 5 International Rallys. I am a previous owner of the famous Wally Byam's Gold Trailer. I have been to inumberable rallies and club functions.

I worked from 1964 to 1969 at the Airstream California plant. Having started as the Receiving Clerk, Cost Accounting, created their Personnel Department and became the Western Materials Manager.

My two most recent Airstream adventures was the 2005 International Rally in Springfield, MO.

Later on the Club and Airstream flew my wife, Susan, and I to Nova Scotia for the dedication of the 50th Anniversay plaque in Kentville. It was a treat since I am a Charter Member and was there when in all begain in 1955.

Currently I do not have an Airstream, but my blood with always flow silver.
Bump!!
