Wally Byam Caravan Club International (WBCCI) Memories

Dale & Virginia have been members of WBCCI since 1974 when they bought their first Airstream, a Bambi. They soon joined the Monterey Bay Unit and became actively involved. They attended most of the rallies and participated in several caravans including one to Baja. They have also attended several International and regional rallies. Dale is a past president of MBCU (1980). In 1990, upon moving to Reno they joined the Sierra Nevada Unit. Their last Airstream was a 1990 Bvan.
