Happy to join and be part of this Community

We are Troy and Barb from Wisconsin. Our 21 is scheduled for completion on June 12th and the build sheet is for the most part complete due to the awesome genuine commentary on this site. A little about us -

1. We live on a small trout stream that is threatened by progress but is still alive.
2. Love to paddle, bike, hike, camp, explore, travel ………….
3. Our kids are out of the house (for the most part) and it's very quiet.
4. We're both introverted but feel a desire to attend an Escape Rendezvous.

Just wanted to say Thankyou to everyone posting on this site and to ask "How do you get a picture in your profile?"

Thanks again,

Troy and Barb

Welcome and I'm sure you will be marking the days off your calendar just like it was Christmas . Plus could not agree with you more about the info and members on this website, they are the reason I knew Escape was the way to go.
Would also suggest you attend a rally when you can, even without your Escape. Learn more there about your new home on wheels then anywhere else I think.

Enjoy the journey.

Steve

Welcome. You've landed in a good spot with an Escape and this forum.

To add a profile picture hit "User CP" on the top bar far left and then click on "Edit Profile Picture" in the choices along the left side. See pic.

Use the "User Profile" menu (Upper Left on the menu bar), select "Edit Profile Picture". Choose a photo you have stored on your computer, noting the size limits described at the bottom. Click "Save Changes" and that should do the trick!

Welcome to the forum.

Well, Dave did a better job - a picture is worth 1000 words & I don't want to type that many!

Welcome Troy and Barb to the Escape world. You'll find we're a friendly bunch. We have attended three of the four Mississippi rallies, usually held in IL on the river the end of September. We won't make it this year but definitely suggest you attend. The rally is open to all FG trailers but you'll find that 90% or so are Escapes.

Perfect timing...if you pick it up on the 13 of June you can drive directly to the BC Fiberglass Egg event that is less than an hour away. This is an event for all fiberglass trailers and would be a great place to check out your trailer before you get to far away.
Hope to see you there.
BC GlassEggs fiberglass meet up June 13-16

You will love your Escape 21. I've had mine for several years now and consider it to be one of the best purchases I've made in my life.

I have really enjoyed the trailer gatherings I have attended, even though I'm an introvert as well. I've enjoyed meeting the other attendees and have learned a lot from them. After each gathering, though, I go back to being a cranky loner.

Fairly soon, I assume, there will be an annoucement for the Mississippi River Rendezvous organized by Fudge brownie. It is planned to be held at Thomson Causeway COE park near Thomson, Il.....across the river from Clinton, IL. A swell event held in late September. You will enjoy your time and the fine folks you meet. Keep an eye on the forum for details.

You know the old saying Mike, strangers are friends you have not met yet. I remember meeting you in Osoyoos one year, I believe it was your first visit to Osoyoos. I always look for you, Bruce (BCNomad), Gabi & Wolf, and Glenn when attending that beautiful campground. I even met Donna D. there one year.

I hope I'm not offending others I did not list, as Iowa Dave, Alf, Red Dog, Jim B, Vella and Glen, Josie and Craig, John and Marti, and these are just the ones who bought one of my used Escapes......just kidding.
