The Lark

I am way late in posting these, but the gud wyfe Lindy says she wants them put where others can see them.

We picked up The Lark on June 21 (Mid-Summer's Day). In this case, "Lark" means "A carefree or spirited adventure," and we will go on many larks meaning "To engage in spirited fun or merry pranks." After we picked The Lark up, we spent two and half weeks meandering back to St. Paul, and had the time of our lives. If we had known how much fun we would have, we would have done bought one years ago. On the other hand, it is a lot easier to enjoy camping when retired! One Spanish word for "retirement" is "jubilación" which is like "jubilation", and it is certainly appropriate for us.

Options were pretty standard -- lots of Umbra hooks (Thanks to Medora for that suggestion), a Jensen LED TV and a AWM975 DVD player which Escape installed. We didn't like the plastic handles on the standard chrome faucet so we asked Reace to substitute a different faucet. Lindy picked out the material (a chenille upholstery fabric, and the formica.

Thanks to Eric and Mary for letting us look at Blue, which convinced us that an Escape was the right egg for us.

The TV is on the passenger side in the rear. We used the standard Escape Mount, and had Reace run an HDMI cable from the AM/FM/WXB/CD/DVD which is above the sink. We usually watch the TV from bed, but have been known to extend the mount so that we can watch from the front dinette.

Thank you very much. Those of you who post pictures probably don't realize that some of us still in the planning stage pour over these pics with a fine-tooth comb. Much appreciated!

Look over your build list and the options. You have these placed where you expect to use them. I have another next to the AC on the wardrobe cupboard at the front.
