LAW MATTERS

by Richard Jirius

WBCCI Legislative Chairperson

Also published in the Blue Beret

If half of what we read hear and is forecast, sequestration will inevitably affect most Airstream life styles. I would urge all members to pay attention to your surrounding areas both National and State, how this may affect your future plans, and any Wally Byam rallies or caravans. Items I have read include the delay of opening both the north and south rim of the Grand Canyon and reducing operating hours of their visitor centers, reducing education programs in many parks, closing half of the visitor centers on the Blue Ridge Parkway, closing one visitor center on Mt. Rainer, and delaying the opening of the Going to The Sun Road in Glacier National Park. Campgrounds will be closed in The Great Smoky National Park, and a visitor center in the Grand Tetons.

Who was Wally Byam? Born July 4, 1896, died July 22, 1962. He was one of the pioneer manufacturers of the travel trailer. He founded the company, Airstream, Inc. He was a leader in developing both the romance and enthusiasm associated with the automobile and recreational vehicle culture. Wally traveled extensively, and his adventures were the inspiration for the formation of the Wally Byam Caravan Club International (WBCCI). The Club was founded in Kentville, Nova Scotia, Canada, in 1955, and has grown to about 6,000 member families.
