My journey begins tomorrow!

Tomorrow when I get off work I will start on my journey to pick up my 5.0 TA. The truck is loaded, just have to throw in the stuff that I will need to use before tossing it in, in the morning.

Then I will hook up my (not mine anymore, I sold it 5 weeks ago) Casita and take it to Tracy, CA and give it to it's new owner.

I am so excited!

I am getting my new hitch installed on my truck Monday morning, the 21, orientation on the 22nd then off to Sumas, then a couple stops for supplies and food then to Lynden koa for a couple nights before I start on my way home.

Please wish for good weather, and a safe trip. I know there are a few of us headed up about the same time.
I have a total of 9 days off. I am really looking forward to my new trailer!


I will post pictures when I can.

Julie and I have our orientation on March 24. Then we will be bringing a 21 back to California to. We are flooding California with Escapes! We will be staying at the Linden KOA too.

Hi: Sandyb12... Make sure you stop and pickup a large double/double at Tim's; that is if you like cream and sugar in your coffee. You will have enough money left and enough caffeine to pay attention during orientation. Congrats on the new trailer and make sure you slow down on the learning curve!!! Alf

Good Luck and Safe Travels, Sandyb12! We are all lining up. Our orientation is 4/13, followed by a couple of days in Lyndon. Looks like a proper plan for all. We're gonna be bottlenecked at the Oregon border.

After visiting Escape a couple weeks back, and seeing all the Timmies cups there, methinks they should just open their own store inside. Though having one a block away is pretty handy. I do have to wonder how much the employees there have spent on Tim Horton coffee though.
