Thanks Greg and Teresa,
We have been checking our email multiple times each evening hoping to hear good news. We haven't yet gotten this last report. Thank you for posting it. So far our pickup plans have not had to change, but we are getting down to the wire for having to cancel reservations, etc. Hopefully, we will hear soon that all is well.

I keep waiting for that next email stating that they are in compliance and exports are starting back, because ours is supposed to go out on the first delivery truck after that. But so far, have not gotten it.

Arrrg - I hate our government - and I'm not being political

The latest email from Tammy, and I will just let her words speak for me or I WILL become political. How can you be exporting trailers for 11 years and then all of a sudden you cant because two agencies can't agree on things....

"Hello Greg,

Yes, I did check the mail today….and I am still an unhappy camper. The day started off pretty rocky with an email from NHSTA stating I have now begun my 4 week wait time which I was not happy to see. It ended this afternoon with multiple phone calls and emails being exchanged with the slight promise of a letter by the end of the week. – I will let you know as soon as I can.

Please feel free to forward any questions you may have."

Can anyone explain here why it takes bureaucrats so long to get a little paperwork done? Makes you wonder how long they sit on the toilet. Loren

They don't care about businesspeople, and truth be told many of them have a lot of bias and even contempt for them.

Boy, to those affected it must seem like a slow motion nightmare.

Hard to imagine what seems to be a deliberate no goodwill situation.

Beginning a 4 week wait now?

I think they just do not have a grip on how timelines affect people. I have seen this in all levels of government. They expect that the requests they issue are simple, one just needs to follow procedure and get results. The problem is that not only is the procedure often difficult to follow, but it takes a lot of time to go through all the phases.

I thought I hear some kind of explosion west of here, it musta been Tammy just blowing off steam.

We are on our 14th day chilling in Chilliwack waiting for this to get resolved. We have gone by ETI and talked to Tammy every few days. She was at her wits end today. She looked at me and told me not to cry because if I did, she'd break down, too. Neither of us cried, but we were both on the verge. We sure appreciate all the work that Tammy has done to try to get this problem fixed.

Hopefully Escape can continue production and not run out of storage room. Just think how good a sales month September will be......
