Love those Intros Tim!


Those intros sound great! One of the best shows yet put together. I love the caller from on the road, while he's towing an Airstream...Technology is pretty cool! Give us a shout on your way to a Rally, would love you hear what you're pulling, where you're going, and why you're doing what you're doing. Just cell it in!

Go VAP Go!

I tuned into the latest "The VAP" this weekend, really enjoyed the show. The VAP folks are doing a fantastic job and I recommend it to everyone in my WBCCI Unit, even if they own a new Airstream! There is so much to learn from people who have restored or are restoring vintage Airstreams, I've gotten a few ideas from this show on how to improve my mid 90s Excella that makes it a better camper for me.

Thanks myboyburt and all..

Glad you like the new intros. They came out great!

I think it was your idea, but we made up a flyer availble at the website that you can print and hand out to other WBCCI rally members. Please let me know how these work out.

We got a few more suprises for episode 12, so don't miss it!

Thanks for all the feedback. It really makes it worth the work. It takes on average 10 hours per episode to produce, sometimes longer

Take a minute for the Listener Survey if you haven't done so yet.

Also don't forget the polls we got going!

We really need some input fast on those who have had ebay buying or selling experience. We're putting together a future show so we need input by 2/8.

More info at the website

Thanks for listening!
