The excitement on the drive out will make you want to get there sooner and afterwards you can relax on the return trip.

The bonus to making time going out is that once you get to South Dakota you can drive 80

Strike while the iron is hot. Live every day as if it were your last and one day you will be right.

Since you made the trip from NC let me ask you how you handled the registration of the vehicle. I am being told importing is not a problem but getting the registration is tricky. Can you help?

Picked up my Escape camped in the Cascades, then went to the Escape Rally in Osoyoos, BC. Enjoyed the rally, but then I got lucky with my pick up date being close to the Rally date.
From there I went up to Alaska and returned home 2 months later. A trip of a lifetime as they say. Since one is already out West, good time to explore out there. I would especially recommend the area around Jasper and Banff National Parks. One does not have to go all the way to Alaska for beautiful scenery. I would highly recommend the Cascades National Park as well. Enjoy, the Escape makes a very comfortable adventure vehicle!
Someone around here was telling us registering the trailer in NC can be tricky. We don't want to head right back but don't know if we will be registered for the trip back. Know how to handle this?

But we can't wait. I am an engineer close to retirement and my lovely wife is a retired school teacher. Extended camping is our dream. We shopped carefully for our camper and feel Escape is the perfect choice. My wife and I look forward to chatting with all of you.
Ha! I was born and raised in Jacksonville . . . now retired in Wenatchee, WA.
