But my point is that, whether as destination or as overnight, a decent system of RV parks that offer 50% discounts to WBCCI members would sure be nice -- and would make me feel a bunch better about paying as much as we do for our membership.

I would actually go out of my way if they offered a TAC discount. WBCCI discount wouldn't apply in my case.

Frank,

As a founding member of TAC, get in touch with the campgrounds and set it up. The campgrounds won't come to you.

Pretty much, I guess. The ones I've seen in the directory (online) just indicate blackout dates so that we know in advance when not to expect the 50% discount off the daily rate.

The major point is that setting this up wouldn't cost the WBCCI anything other than letters, emails, or phone calls directed to the many hundreds of RV parks listed in the passport directory. As far as listing them is concerned, that would involve a simple PDF file on the website, updated regularly, as needed. For those folks who do not do the internet, they could do it like some of the units do with their online vs. hard-copy newsletters: Pay an extra fee for a hard copy.

But the benefit to us members would be substantial, I think.

Carl, MaxAB is correct, I believe that you have a misconception of Land Of The Free.

You all should ask yourself these questions, What would you do if you opened a business? Would you give everything away? How long would you have your business this way?

Now dont get me wrong I believe that campgrounds are getting a little carried away with the fees they charge, and eventually are going to price themselves out of business as everyone is going to go back to motels because of cost. But on the same token we all have to understand that in this day and age of regulations it costs money to operate, and governments/municipalities are going to get their fair share. As far as the day of the road side stop that used to exist, the above and people who dont have any curtosy to clean up after themselves caused them to go by the wayside.
