On the road with our new 19!

After a dash from Ohio to the west coast, we picked up our new 19 at the factory on June 12. It was stunning, sitting there awaiting our orientation session. Official transfer to us at Bob's Burgers and Brew went perfectly, and we turned right around and pulled it back to Canada with no problem. After a couple of nights at Lake Chilliwack to check things out while still near the mothership, we headed off to Winthrop WA, Portland, and now we're in Santa Rosa CA. We really love our Escape. After starting with motorcycle camping, then a teardrop, a 13' Scamp, a 16' Casita, we feel like we've finally arrived at a camper that will serve our needs for as long as we're able to be on the road. I really appreciate all the coaching we got here on the forum during our ordering process. We pretty well maxed out our options and have no regrets over our choices. We're still learning about the Escape and will have some questions to post elsewhere on the site. Meanwhile, we're really enjoying ourselves.

Happy Campers,
Parker and Carol

Congratulations! There is a camp ground with full and partial hook-ups at Casini Ranch Campground and RV park. It is off Highway 116 on the road to the beautiful Pacific Ocean, along the Russian River. It is inland from Jenner by about 4 miles. You can unhook and explore everything from the redwoods to Mendocino and the quaint little town of Occidental. Hopefully you will have the time to do that. If you are going back to Springfield, OR, and have the time, will you be joining the fgrv group in Bandon? Hope so.

Congratulations! We will be picking up our 19 in September. We are going down to Winthrop too to visit some relatives. Where did you stay there? We are busy planning our trip details.

Happy Travels!

John and Brenda

That, too, was my philosophy when ordering...I figured do it once, do it right. So far I haven't regretted any decisions I made.

Would love to see some pics of your new and last trailer!

We have the good fortune of "camping" in the driveway of some friends here in Santa Rosa. My wife grew up in Sonoma. It just so happens that I visited Occidental yesterday when I missed the turn for Sebastopol! We're heading back toward OH on Monday, with our next outing being the Escape Rally in Niagara. Need to go home and pay a little attention to things there before heading out again.

I'll have to get to work on that. We picked it up in the rain, immediately drove on gravel roads with it, and have only done a marginal cleanup of the outside since. It looks well used already!

Thanks! We camped at the Silverline Resort. It's a great spot, just up the hill from town, and is situated on a beautiful lake.

Wrong Springfield, sorry. Have a safe and enjoyable trip.
I am sure your wife knows all the fun spots in and around the Santa Rosa area. More for you to explore at another time.

I think there is a Springfield in nearly every state! We hope to get back out here again and will keep the rally in mind for next time. Thanks.
