See our Escape 19 on the Road

I have an idea that I'm about to test to see if this works on this forum. Under the subject heading "See our Escape 19 on the Road", I am going to post a link to a Googlemap of an upcoming trip we'll be making. This will give people interested in seeing a 19 a heads up as to where we might connect for a camper showing.

If this map posting works, anybody else with a 19 who would like to post a map of their travel route could also add their map under this heading.

And if it seems workable, maybe others would like to start new subject headings such as "See our Escape 17b on the Road" or "See our Escape 5.0 on the Road."

Re: See our Escape 19 on the Road

Great idea Liz....once you get the kinks worked out. Sure wish somebody with a 5.0 would do the same.

Re: See our Escape 19 on the Road

Here's how to do it if you want to post your own trip:

1. Go to https://maps.google.com/ and choose "Get directions."

2. Enter your start and end points, or a sequence of intermediate destinations along your route. Then choose "GET DIRECTIONS" in the blue rectangle. This creates the map.

3. Choose the little icon that looks like a few links of a chain to request a LINK.

4. Check the box by "Short URL."

5. Copy and paste the resulting HTTP address here on the Escape Forum.

6. Please give your trip posting a simple heading to identify it and the dates you will be taking the trip. I think it's best not to give too much info in this public forum, but correspond by private message to reveal more details to those you trust.

Just east of Rapid City, SD is Wall Drugs (you'll see the signs long, long, long before you get to it) and the Badlands of South Dakota. Both unique and interesting in their own way, if time allows.

You're planning some awsome trips......sure hope you post photos here!

I've rode both of these areas by motorcycle several times over the years and now we're looking forward to doing it all again, pulling our Escape......and the whole new adventure that will be. All areas have "tourist traps" that often are't worth the time, let alone the money. However, in Chattanooga we felt that Rock City, Ruby Falls and Lookout Mountain were all worth the time and the money. We try to plan the tourist things early in the mornings to beat the crowds (and while we have the energy. LOL).

Columbia, SC has some beautiful plantations and a historic district of beautiful homes.

JCZ, it's nice of you to mention some highlights, and we, too, especially love the Badlands. It's like going to the moon. I listed many of the towns on the trip to the South simply because we'll be passing through, not necessarily stopping long enough to play tourist this time. Still we would be happy to meet up with someone who wanted to see an Escape 19 anywhere on this route.
