Hi Charlie and Lucy,
At first, thought I might see you in Chilliwack since my 17B will be ready 10/14. Hopefully some day on the road.
Congratulations on your purchase and also on your earlier completion date. This is my first trailer as well and cannot tell you how helpful those on this Forum have been. I feel like I've earned a Bachelors Degree in RV'ing.

Welcome from another who started our knowing nothing and ended up ordering and enjoying towing our first trailer through an exciting 10 week journey home from the factory! Due to all I was able to learn here, there were hardly any things that we needed to pick up after we got our Escape. (Not that we haven't bought things since - we are RV'ers now)

Thanks.

Your new completion date opens up northern tier camping options that otherwise might have been iffy on your return. So many great options depending on your route desires; I'll be happy to help where I can - and no doubt others will also.

Hi Kevin & Barbara,
Thanks for the welcome!
It's nice to know that there are others who have undertaken this whole adventure knowing nothing to start with and came out on the other end with enjoyment! That's what we are hoping to do also. Enjoy our trip home from the factory leisurely, enjoy getting to know the "vagabond" life. And take our time learning all about our new Escape. We have been scouring the forums posts and learning from what others have written. Hopefully by the time we get our build specs in place we will have everything we will want or need.
Thanks again.
Charlie & Lucy

Hi EDarby,
I hope that some day we will meet on the road! We'll know each other by our Escapes!
I wonder if there are any groups of Escapees that meet from the Northeast? Although Cleveland isn't quite in the NE it is more so that Wyoming! Someday it would be nice to make one of the rallys in BC. Maybe for us it might be feasible for 2016?
Anyway... happy trails!

Hey Charlie & Lucy,
I'm new to all this too so don't know if there are any Escape meetups in the northeast. In the meantime, if you're driving through Cleveland on your way back home from Chiliwack, let me know and I'll meet you and buy you coffee. Or beer. Or both.

There was the First Annual Eastern Escape Rally held in September, 2014. Here is a link to some photos.

Here is a link to the discussions of the 2nd.

Hi, Charlie and Lucy,

Welcome to the Escape community. It is always exciting to get a trailer. You can only figure out so much before you camp but fortunately you can add most things later.
