Hi Bill and Mary. Great to welcome some fellow Iowans to the Escape family. We live on 3 acres near Atkins and also retired last year. We bought our Escape 19 last August and we have already logged over 10,000 miles in 3 trips. We spent the first 7 years of our marriage in Council Bluffs and camped at Viking, Lake of Three Fires and Nine Eagles State Park among others.

Hi Bill and Mary and Rita and Dave,
Welcome to our little Escape world. I recently traversed Iowa on my trip to the Escape Rally in Osoyoos, BC earlier this month. I also attended college there back in the 60's- Parson's College in Fairfield, Iowa, a small town off Iowa rt#34 near Ottumwa and Mt. Pleasant.

Hi chaharley. Parson's College is now Maharishi University where they practice consciousness based education. Quite a different place since you went there.

Yes, I stopped in Fairfield last summer on a trip to Nebraska, it was like stepping back in time!

Nice to know there are some Iowans and former Iowans on the forum! Jim, we're well acquainted with Parsons -- Bill's cousin played football for Parsons in the 60's.

Nice to see there will be another midwest pin in the owner's map. Not sure what is wrong with all these MT people! LOL

I was there from Fall 1966 til Spring 1967 when they lost their accreditation and was forced to leave. Rally liked the school and it's teaching method, would have stayed.

Welcome

Welcome to the Escape family. It's really exciting to be getting your trailer. You will also be gratified that your trailer turned out to be the Cadillac of fiberglass trailers. You have many wonderful travels ahead of you. Congratulations.

Making a change

'Just discovered this great forum! My wife(70) and I (71) camp in a very well preserved 1989 Coleman Laramie popup. We live in Sacramento, CA, and occasionally drive to British Columbia and Seattle. We are growing tired of the labor needed to set up and take down our trailer, so are looking at Escapes and Casitas, Scamps, etc. We tow with a '07 Honda Odyssey van, 3500 lbs rating. We prefer the 2-bed layouts, although it is just we two. We don't have, and don't miss having a shower inside, but love our owner-installed loo. As we get no rain in our N. CA camping season, all our cooking is done outside. And as you may know, CA state parks don't have electricity or water hookups, showers are nearby, so we don't need the shower, TV or AC features. Really, our trailer, now anyway, is just a place to sleep, change clothes and store stuff.
Having said all that, if you were to buy a new or used Escape that answered some of these "wishes", which would you recommend?
Thanks in advance. Gene
