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.
NorCal 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…
Benbow Mega Rally
What a week. We stopped at the Calistoga RV Park on the way to Benbow. We took our time. The Benbow RV Resort was a beautiful setting. We endured some serious wind (and a full day power outage as a result). But, we are Airstreamer and when the going gets tough…The area is beautiful. Most of us visited the Avenue of the Giants.
We enjoyed good company, good food and good wine. Some dined at the adjacent Benbow Inn. As an added extra we had a wine and cheese tasting.
At our game night novice gamblers learned the ins and outs of games of chance. Alas, no money changed hands.
Thanks to Robert E. and Kent S. for the photos.
Region 12 Cali Rally
Wow, what a rally! Dry camping at the V6 Ranch in Parkfield provided the ultimate getaway. Nothing to hook up; just park and enjoy. Region 12 Airstreamers from California and Nevada met and renewed friendships. Check out the May Poppy for a more thorough write-up (with more pictures).
The April rally was held at Flag City RV Resort just west of Lodi.
The group visited the Haggin Museum in Stockton. They enjoyed displays representing early early California history.
Our president hosted us at her house in Acampo. Happy hour was never better.

Yes, I have made some changes.
I solved some formatting issues by adopting a more modern theme. I hope you approve.
We all know what comes before a beautiful rainbow. Yes, we had plenty of the wet stuff, but it didn’t dampen our spirits. The Lakes RV and Golf Resort provided a great setting for our activities.
We toured Ficklin Vineyards, a winery that specializes in port. We sampled several port varieties and enjoyed a good lunch.
The Saturday night potluck was a big hit.
We lowered our inhibitions and tried some games after dinner.
Some visited the Castle Air Museum. Thanks to Kent for the photos.
The Norcal board has decided upon a design for a garden flag for your Airstream.
The text below the poppy can be customized. Stay tuned for ordering information.
What’s New in 2018?
So, I’m starting the new year with a blank page. If you are looking for information about past years, check out the links at the bottom of the page. If you are looking for information about 2018, look on the Calendar page. Of course you should read the Poppy.
How do I fill up the page? With contributions from people like you. If you have a great photo from one of the upcoming rallies, send it to the webmaster. I can’t guarantee that I will use every photo, but there are so many terrific things happening at rallies that my iphone and I cannot capture them all. Thanks in advance.The NorCal Airstream Club is a chapter of the Wally Byam Caravan Club International (WBCCI).
