Time to walk away from the anger

I am writing because I have found myself reading threads getting more heated about certain issues concerning individuals, clubs, money and other things. I guess I could just ignore the threads but I have been trying to make sense out of the rising conflicts. Please no!!! don't repeat the reasons because I have read them over and over in all kinds of threads.

The bottom line is people are angry and standing their ground about certain issues pertaining to airstream RVing. Maybe if people could just turn off the negative and forget about the anger a new light will shine and understanding and common ground can be found. If not new creative ways of airstreaming may come out of it.

For people who have felt that they have been cheated one way another relax. Something positive will come out of it if you want it to. I joined the new TAC club. My first RV club ever. Times are changing and in nature life evolves. I think these changes people are making is just evolution of a way of life. A new breed of Airstreaming is being born. A different philosophy or getting away from tradition, who knows? change is happeining

I hope you all just look at the big picture. Enjoy your camping while you can. Club or no club times will be changing in the next 30 years. Watch this below. I saw this at a science conference last week. It is very boring for about 6 minutes and then you will see alarming growth of population. We may lose are way of life and camping if we are not careful. Time to get along and focus on the big picture.

YouTube - World Population

Watch the whole thing

Lurked here for a bit - just signed up today and even though it is free - the first thing I did was place my $20.00 donation via Pay Pal....

That's how great I think this forum is, the users, and the information!!!!

Now if I can only figure out which Airstream to purchase....

Well actually the brand affiliation group is an Airforums Club. Your beef is unfounded. And the brand affiliation group is operated on the same model as any other Airforum club... free free free. Everyone pays their own way. It is all right here at Airforums...
You are welcome to come join in the fun anytime you wish.

problem with clubs is that some people never get included.when im traveling,i feel as comfortable engaging anybody in conversation.doesnt matter if they are in a prevost or in a tent.afterall i started in a tent.i look at the camping community as one big club.when i was in lake george a couple of summers ago,the prevost club was having a little rally on there way to canada.as i pulled in next to there prevosts,they were wondering how i got in to there exclusive area.i said i asked for a premium site and was willing to pay the freight.after admiring their units they invited me and my family over for some margarita tailgating.of course,as the evening progressed they were very interested in checking out the silver bullet next door.clubs tend to evolve into a big click inmho.

that's more like it brian!

what sets THIS place apart from most brand/enthusiast/chat sites is that we actually DO have gatherings (my favorite term for rallez)

there have been 100s all over the land,

with no real restrictions beyond the geography at hand.

and these gatherings don't have a kitty fee, insurance issues, or other hoops to jump.

they generally focus on camping, food, campfires, food, relaxin, food, beverages, food, alien probings, food, recreation and...

did i mention food?

it's been interesting to watch the wb' and others try to skim off from this simple'r buffett of gatherings...

without much success.

the folks who have organized the gigs almost always express satisfaction from their efforts.

some have developed a real KNACK for planning these forum events and do several a year now...

IF the need is to feel like one belongs somewhere or is a part of something...

that can and does happen here.

IF the need is for a LOCAL affiliation with folks CLOSE BY who can physically assemble,

the wb' can and does SERVE that goal...

in SOME regions.

and so do the these forums, where enough folks live life CLOSE 2gether.
___________

the challenge is always building a critical mass within some 'range' of distance that serves the purpose.

so folks that live or spend a lot of time where there are CLUSTERS of LOTs of streamers can get that in the wb' or here...

IF however one is 100s of miles removed from many other streamers...

no new group will solve that issue by issuing new alpha/numerics.
___________

i think that alot of this early activity is from the desire to get a LOW NUMBER.

as if that somehow defines us.
___________

many schemes that are not much more than FLUFF and static, rely on appealing to this very notion....

ever heard the "get IN on the ground floor" cliche' ?
___________

anyway it's good to read u NOW remember the "1st club"

and hope u can make some of the many FORUM gatherings on the FORUM calendar!

there seems to be a LOT of gatherings and stuff in/around jo-ja' and flo'da to attend.

with lots of friendly southern charm...

and food

cheers
