“Come and Go” Caravans

Shorter “come and go” caravans allow participants to join, leave and/or re-join the caravan at any point. This ideal for working members or those with limited time.  Members of units in adjoining states may choose to join a short caravan as it nears their home state. 

Participants may be responsible for their own campsite reservations at state parks, thereby taking responsibility for cancellation.   They also pay individualized rally fees based on the activities in which they participated.    

Spreadsheets and a shorter time period make this easier for caravan leaders to calculate.

The Florida Treasure Coast Unit will host a SHORT UNIT CARAVAN to the Region 3 Rally in Ladson, SC (Charleston area). The caravan will leave the FTCU Spring Rally at Blueberry Hill RV Resort, Bushnell, FL on Sunday morning, April 26, 2015, spend Sunday night near Jacksonville (approx. 150 miles), Monday and Tuesday nights near Savannah (approx. 150 miles) and arrive at the Region 3 Rally (approx. 90 miles) on Wednesday afternoon. Monday night we will enjoy dinner at one of the Savannah area’s fine restaurants. On Tuesday we will tour the historic area of Savannah, GA, and have lunch downtown. If touring Savannah is not your “thing” there is a Tanger Outlet Mall a few miles north of the campground near Hilton Head, SC. Activities and meals are voluntary. If you would rather do something else on Tuesday that would be fine. We will collect a kitty fee (TBD) to cover camping expenses. Meals and tours are on your own.

The FTCU rally is open to any WBCCI member. If you plan to caravan with us we encourage you to enjoy our rally beginning on Thursday, April 23, 2015.

The Revolutionary War in the
Hudson River Valley


A Caravan from July 15-25, 2015
Unit/Region Caravan No. U-417
led by Debbie and Mark Hammer Metro NY Unit


This exciting, family friendly caravan will take it’s participants from Fort Stanwix and the Battle of Oriskany, one of the bloodiest of the Revolutionary War, through the changing fortunes of Fort Ticonderoga, the Battles of Saratoga that decided the fate of General Burgoyne’s army and the strategic situation of West Point on the Hudson River. There will also be a day trip into NYC to visit colonial sites and explore downtown Manhattan. At each stop costumed guides and re-enactors will meet us and explain tactics and strategies and bring a human element to the conduct of war.


Along the way there will be time to drive through the Adirondack Park and down the Hudson River Valley and explore the towns of Warrensburg, Lake George, Saratoga, Newburgh and Kingston as well as to enjoy the amenities of the campgrounds we will visit.
Social events will include happy hours, dinners, cookouts and lunches at West Point and Fraunces Tavern.
All campground fees (except as noted), tours, welcome dinner, final banquet, cookout, and West Point lunch are included in the kitty fee.
