Sorry WBCCI

The talk around our campfire the last week or so has been about the $10 dues increase that the WBCCI/IBT have now put in.It is my feeling that this is how the 4 members here feel.
(1) That the leadership of the WBCCI is wasting OUR dues money on them selfs, just like the folks we send to Wash.DC do.
(2) That ALL WBCCI leadship should work for FREE,with NO perks that cost $$.If they can not afford to work for free do not take the job.
(3) That they are to confused in their old age and out of touch with the members that they can not save the club and should step down and let younger folks see if they can save Wally.
(4) That ALL unit should pole their members to see if they want to get out of the WBCCI and start a new club.That units like the NE,Wash.DC and 4CU could put pressure on the leadership of the WBCCI if their unit poled to get out.
(5) 2 of the 4 here have joined the Escapees and their Silver Bullet club because they get more for their money with them than you get with the WBCCI.
I am worried that this will be all the talk at the 4CU Dead Horse rally and I DO NOT want to hear it any more.I just want to go camping with folks I like and enjoy the out doors so I may be out after this year and camp the way I did before.To HELL with the politics of it all.
Now that is done it is going to be a nice day here in the BIG Q with the temp in the upper 60s and SUNNY.My boy will be here from Texas this week end for a week and that will make my week.So things are good for me in the BIG Q.That is the end of my rant for the day I now going to have another Bloody Mary and have a nice day.I may even go get 2 of my propane bottles filled.

Jimmini, not to worry, about the politics while in Deadhorse. I think everyone just wants to camp and have a good time. We are making some headway, with 4CU leadership now moving to the region level. Believe me there are many like-minded folks working from every angle to stop the nonsense and bring about positive change.

Keep the reports coming, I look forward to reading them each morning. We hope that you and Larry have a good time and be sure to tell him hello for us. Just Remember club or no club... we will all still camp together and have a good time!

Escapees understand it's all about camping...

Been a member of Escapees for a couple of years and yes they get it.
It's all about us...the RV'er and how to improve your time on the road or camping...Fantastic people who care about the club.

I believe WCBBI cares! They have just forgotten why they started out and are more interested in being a big shot in WBCCI.

Because most folks in the BIG Q do not get out before 10 AM.We got there at 9 AM when the gates open just so we could miss them.

Q Today

Well Larry and I made the hike up into Palm Canyon today.Palm Canyon is about 18 miles South of Quartzsite off Highway 95 about 7 miles on a dirt road.They are the only native palm trees in Arizona and are tucked away in a narrow,rugged canyon on the Kofa National Wildlife Refuge.The canyon also has a lot of Bighorn Sheep But we did not see any today.
Photo 1 Looking up at the narrow canyon that is Palm Canyon
Photo 2 Looking upward in the narrow,north trending side canyon at the Palm Trees.
Photo 3 Looking out of Palm Canyon at the vast desert below.
