We attended our very first rally with our Denver Colorado Unit of the WBCCI (Wally Byam Caravan Club International). 121 members attended this very popular annual rally which was held at the Wellington KOA Campground just north of Ft. Collins, Colorado. There were 51 shiny and beautiful Airstreams representing our local club. In addition to maintenance forums, there was a tamale making afternoon with instruction by Nina and Ray Velasquez, my favorite event ~ “open house” where you tour Airstreams (as long as their door is open!!), happy hours each afternoon, breakfast each morning and dinners shared together each night. It really was a great event to not only learn about new and vintage Airstream maintenance and repair but, to meet fellow ‘Streamer friends.

My favorite spot was Luke Bernander’s “Barstream” where we enjoyed draft beer each afternoon and evening. Luke owns Luke’s Maintenance and Repair company in Loveland, CO and is a well-respected Airstream repair facility. (970) 222-4065. Luke is not only an exceptional mechanic but, he is a super great guy and always has a smile on his face.
