Recollections of WBCCI

Mike came across the photo galleries of my grandparents (WBCCI #772) on this website. He was interested in seeing more photos of WBCCI rallies and caravans of the 1950's and 1960's. That motivated me to get busy and set up more photo galleries. Over time I became curious about his Airstream background so I asked him to send me some information. The following is Mike's story. He has a very unique perspective on the history of WBCCI.
