Traveling
  • Will we be moving all the time?
  • Caravans are designed to provide the best taste of an area possible without traveling too far in any one day or moving too often.

  • I don’t think I would like to travel in a convoy.
  • Caravans RARELY travel in a convoy. Most times you will travel in small groups of 3 or 4 for companionship and safety, however if you prefer you may travel by yourself.

  • How will I know where to go?
  • At the beginning of the Caravan you will be given a “Drivers Manual”. It will contain information about the operation of the Caravan and detailed driving directions from stop to stop.

  • What kind of accommodations will we have?
  • Our Caravans try to explore all of the areas that we travel through. As a result, camping accommodations may range from Full hookup sites to dry camping in ball fields or parking lots. Your “Drivers Manual” will contain information about each site so that you can be prepared.

  • Will we be moving all the time?
  • We encourage you to explore the areas we travel to. If possible plans are made to stay at a stopping location for 2 or 3 days (sometimes more).

  • What will we be doing?
  • There will be group tours arranged to highlight things of local interest, plus you will have plenty of time to explore on your own.

  • I don’t want to be in a big group all the time.
  • There will be plenty of time to explore on your own.

  • What if there is an emergency at home?
  • You will be provided with a list of telephone numbers of the campgrounds where we will stop along. You may provide this list to someone at home so that they can contact you. If you have to leave the Caravan because of an emergency, the Leaders will make every attempt to recover prepaid expenses and return them to you as soon as they can.

  • What if there is an emergency while we are on the road?
  • You are responsible for handling any medical or equipment emergency on your own. However, there will be many people on the Caravan that will pitch in and help you all they can. On travel days there will be an assigned “Caboose” to stop with you if you run into trouble on the road. They will not be able to fix your problem, but will stay with you until a solution has been found.

  • How can we receive our mail?
  • You will be provided a list of mailing addresses where your mail can be sent. There will be a “postman” assigned from the Caravan that will gather the mail and deliver it to Caravan members.

  • Who does all the work that needs to be done?
  • WBCCI Caravans are a club function and as in all other club functions the members do the work. You will be asked to pitch in and help with jobs such as: Parking, Welcome Committee, Cookouts, Dumping, Caboose, etc. Jobs will be rotated so that you will not be stuck doing the same thing over and over.
