Hello from northern Michigan

Greetings Escapees and Escapee-wanta-bees! We’ve been lurking for quite awhile, soaking up the information and stoking our enthusiasm. This April we secured a 19’ May 2017 production date and took a factory tour with Reese. The product, operation and people involved confirmed our reasons why we chose Escape!

While there, we met Mesa from Colorado taking delivery on their new trailer. Thanks again Mesa for letting us see your new 19! We read your returning home thread and are glad to hear you arrive safely and are happy with your purchase.

Well it’s time now for us to work on our build sheet, keep an eye on the exchange rate and prepare our low mileage ’09 Ford Explorer TV. You can be sure if we’ve questions, we’ll ask here and/or ECI. In the meantime, thank you for this forum. We appreciate the insights, expertise and camaraderie you offer.
We're looking forward to being fellow Escapees and possibly meeting you on the road!

Jan & Bob
Traverse City MI

Congrats Jan and Bob! We hope you'll love your 19 as much as we do ours.

I am fond of the area in the NW section of the Lower P. We've camped at several of the state parks in that area as well as the Sleeping Bear Dunes and all the way up to Leelanaw. The UP is great as well. We hope to get a chance to meet you at a rally sometime. It's not a bad
run over to Niagara Falls from where you are at or to several other popular rallies. Best of luck on your build sheet, we've certainly enjoyed our 19 and look forward to this season with great anticipation.

Welcome. The UP (which should be part of Wisconsin) is one of our very favorite places to camp. We have been to the Porkies several times and its a place I could go back to every year. I hope you can make it to the Mississippi Rally this year.

I've never been to the
Porkies or Isle Royal but it is on my camping list. Tahquenamon Falls is a great park. I get all jabbed up there and do a dramatic reading from Hiawatha. Part of the campers are appreciative however most are either disgusted or annoyed. Palms Book
With the Big Spring, Kitchitikeepee,
with those huge Brown trout is a favorite too. So many stops, so little
time. Wait! I'm retired

I thought Wisconsin was going to buy the U.P with revenues from their overpriced camping?

Traverse City is hardly "Northern Michigan". It's still in Troll Country, after all . Maybe everything north of Detroit is considered "northern"?

Wisconsin? Buy anything? You must be thinking of Minnesota, you know, the one with the good economy.......

Tahquenamon Falls, only state park I've ever been too with its own on-site brew pub.

So Doug where do you get pasties in BC?
