NorCal Airstream Club

Welcome to the Northern California unit of the Wally Byam Caravan Club International (WBCCI). The NorCal Airstream Club is a group of people who own Airstreams, love to travel and have fun. Most of our members are from Northern California, including San Joaquin, the North Coast, Sierras, Sacramento Valley and San Francisco Bay area.

PoppyNorCal is large enough to support a great program of rallies and caravans, yet small enough that members easily establish life-long friendships. We tend to be retired or near retirement, although we have seen a recent increase in new members in mid-career. This group has diverse interests including ham radio, fishing, bicycling, quilting, art and history. An underlying theme is the Airstream lifestyle so there is regular chatter about trailer ambiance, maintenance, repair and towing skills. We host a minimum of eight unit rallies a year, mostly in Northern and Central California with an occasional foray into Nevada. Read more…

 

Clio Rally

Norcal members enjoyed the beauty and solitude of the Clio/Graeagle area.  Clio’s Rivers Edge RV Park provided the perfect setting among the pines.  The food was great; the company even better.  A group of fly fisherman had a nice hike and was outwitted by the local trout.  Artistic adventurers created their own original Airstream art under the direction of a talented professional artist.

Clio Rally

A group of intrepid explorers hiked up to the original gold discovery site in Plumas County.  The two-three hour hike covered at least two miles (best guess) with an elevation gain of 300-400 feet, about half way up the mountain in the photo.  The views were outstanding and the Orange Peel fungus was pretty cool.Clio Rally1

Red Bluff Rally

The weather didn’t dampen the spirits of the Norcal members who attended the May rally in Red Bluff.  Durango RV Resort provided a comfortable place to kick back.  We visited the New Clairveaux Abbey where the  Cistercian Monks are assembling a chapter house from ancient stones.  The history of the stones and the circumstances that brought them to Vina is fascinating.  We tasted the wines produced by the abbey. Desktop3

We also  toured Shasta Dam.Desktop4

We were given a garden tour at the home of one of your members.  Native and drought tolerant plants were the focus.  Desktop5

WBCCI Region 12 Cali Rally

 

The Region 12 Cali Rally was dry-camping at its finest.  The Camatta Ranch provided the perfect place to get away from it all.  Campfires, chili cook-offs, entertainment and camaraderie, it doesn’t get any better.  All photos by Kent S.

Olema Rally

Norcal celebrated the honey bee at the Olema rally in April.  One of our rally hosts demonstrated the art of beekeeping.  The Olema Ranch Campground and surrounding area provided a beautiful setting for the rally.  Of course there were recurring themes: good friends, good food and drink and interesting activities.  Photos by Kent S. and Cam M.

Columbia Rally

The NorCal rally in Columbia was a success.  We occupied both the 49er RV Park and the Marble Quarry RV Park.  We explored Columbia State Park, renewed friendships, ate well (always) and enjoyed a production of My Fair Lady at a theater in Sonora.  We took care of some business by belatedly installing our new president, Jackie K., and our new recording secretary, Claudette P.  The occasional rain showers made the entire rally more interesting.
