I was thinking of doing it in October next year, to catch the leaves in fall colors, and because the free spots are usually more available.

We can bounce ideas around here, and once we have a core group of people, we can start a new thread.
Now that sounds cool. We (my family) would have to plan well in advance due to having to travel a day or two just to get to the start point and then a day, day & a half to get home from the end. But sounds like a great idea at this point.

10 of us went down the trace last year in September, wonderful trip, lots of things to see and do, take your time a week or more, take lots of side trips to the surrounding areas, you can easily spend two weeks, lots to see and do

We are glad to have this forum as it is helping us dive right into the AS life.

We have had the trailer for less than a week it we have spent 5 days by myself and 3 with the wife along. Cant wait to meeting other AS people. We are friends with 2 families already and a 3rd I met online informed me they know people we know from our previous camper life. We have 5 weekend trips planned going forward and I think we will pull it from Atlanta to Seattle for our Daughters wedding in November. What TAC GA number can I have?????
Good grief, hasn't everybody had enough of this "number crap" such as WBBCI?
I know who I am, and sure as hell, don't have to have a number to remind me....can't anybody simply have fun any more?
We have just completed an Alaskan trip, saw a lot of Airstreams, and very interesting, there were more of them that DID NOT have WBCCI numbers than did have the red attrocities pasted to the front and rear of their units....
Just an observation, but it sure told us something.

Larry, Many members of the Club with Mr. Byam's name in it do not fly their numbers. The reason I hear for this is they do not want to ruin the skin of their trailer. I think just because you do not see any numbers is not a direct correlation that it is owned by a non "B" member. It might be someone running bald.
There is also no requirement for a TAC member to fly his or hers numbers either. Most everyone that has joined loves having a number to identify them. People seem very proud of their number. The nature of the TAC is for you to make the rules you want to follow. If you want no number, then you get no number. If you want a number significant to you, then that can be done also. It is totally up to the member and what they want.

I like my number and have it proudly on my Argosy. Why??? I really could not tell you the exact reason. However, I look at it as a way to promote the new club and for other TAC members to know that we are members as well. This club is in it infancy and could use all the promotion that it could get....IF it is to become a true alternative/addition to the other club.

The only reason I see for the numbers is so we can look in the directory and see who owns that really awesome A/S we saw. Not putting the number on is a privacy guard like being unlisted.

When will the TAC website start having content?

When will the TAC magazine start looking like a magazine? I have done magazine typesetting and think a well laid out magazine with great contact is a big part of any venture's success. Who does the magazine now? Would you like some layout help?

Well Larry, Why??? Because I can and I want it. not anybody place to question why anybody wants it. It is not right for a person to pressure, coercce or intimidate anybody to do something, we have numbers under our own free will because we asked for them. It is a number, it doesn't say who you are and if you are defined by a number then... well I will let the people with opinions finish that. I number only identifies you. As I type this I am sitting in my Airstream at the Top of Georgia Airtream park, allowed only because we are WBCCI members. This, by the way, has been an incredible experience and the people at TOG have been some of the nicest people we have encountered. Our AS will not have the numbers on the skin because it has been polished and needs done again and the numbers on the skin will make this upkeep a hassle. If you knew anything about our history you would know until we purchased the AS we camped in a p-up and did so 1/3 the weekends of a year for 8 years. We love state parks and COE campgrounds and spend most of our time there with good freinds. Camping to us is all about fun but I guess the request of a number or the signing up in WBCCI changes all of this. Wow... it going to suck to have to be serious now that we have an Airstream. Just kidding... Bring on the fun. We love our Airstream and talking to people that stop by just to see it or talk about one they had growing up as a kid. We love to stop by other peoples Airstreams and see what they have done and dream of what we can do to ours.

Have fun and live free.

If we're going to write in boldface now, why not italics and underline too?

I hear you, and pretty much agree....My wife and I got a very bad taste in our mouths from a certain Florida chapter of WBCCI that we we members of for a couple of years.
If a club is for the enjoyment of all of it's members, and continues in that manner, then I'm all for it. But if it begins to be run by a clique of snobs, as was our experience, then it very quickly becomes part of my past...

Larry, while I have no reason to doubt your experience with a WBCCI chapter, I think it's best to stick with TAC stuff here. There are plenty of threads to exuberantly criticize the WBCCI.

So far as numbers go, I see no great need to put numbers of any group anywhere. I'd have to go look for numbers, order numbers, put numbers on. That's a lot of work. And if I did, I'd put them in a window, not on the outside of the trailer. I haven't even gotten around to getting an AIR sticker, creating an avatar, putting some pithy quote at the bottom of my posts. I do take regular showers however.

Just a quick note here, I belong to the Ia-Tac group. (I don't own an Airstream) I think the TAC has gone a long way towards improving public relations.
