Short rabbit ears = I was thinking coyotes.

I'm on Whidbey now, at Deception Pass. It's very nice here.

Mike- we were interested to see that you are at Deception Pass- we pick up our 21 on 4/21 and will head there for our first few nights out!

Given that, I'll try to behave myself so that every subsequent Escape isn't banned from the park. I've been keeping a low profile as it is, since I don't know what I'm doing.

You'll like it here; it's really nice.

I'm in the same boat. I've got a list of potential first sites. My orientation is May 2. Sounds like a good location to settle while I begin to figure out this trailering life. Thanks for your feedback on beginning the transition from tent to Escape.

Kevin and Barbara:

We have stayed in Deception pass too. Some pointers:
  1. you might want to make reservations so that you get a site with hookups
  2. most sites are treed so you will need to get the right site if you are counting on solar power
  3. there is a Walmart Superstore and a Camping World in Mount Vernon and Burlington just off the I5 near Highway 20 which have a good supply of RV items in case you need to buy any
  4. Deception Pass State Park is on the flight path for the NAS from Oak Harbor, so training flights can make it noisy at times
