Tumbleweed is christened

We finally decided on a name we both liked for our Escape -- one that describes our travelling style and preferred travelling location, the land of the old west, cowboys & mountain men, deserts & canyons . . . A designer friend of Wendy's came up with a graphic, and a signmaker did us up the vinyl sign.

May need a redo, we think it's too large, people will certainly see us coming . . . or going. As was mentioned somewhere on the forum, the name is best on both ends. I agree.

Happy trails.

I like the name, did you put it on the back too?

Be easy to ID your rig on the " Escape Sighting" thread.

Are you asking for opinions? If so, yes, way too large.

Not keen on novelty type either.
Trouble is, if you reduce it, it will become illegible.

Yeah, the novelty type was a bit too much.

I can't help but think it looks like machine gun graphics.
But if you like it that's the important thing.

I like that Tumbleweed seems to be very well named as it is rolling over and tumbling around. Perfect name.

Tumbleweed

I for one, don't mind the size, "font", color or anything else about your graphic. If I ever meet you coming or if you pass me going away I'll simply say "there goes old tumbleweed."
And, if you ever get tired of the name you can put an S in front of the T or take the T off and substitute a whole series of new first letters. B D F H J M R W ( just for fun) and finally a Z just to confuse people. Looks good to me. I never judge another persons equipment in the negative. I've been beaten on the trap range too many times by guys with bad looking shotguns. Have fun with it, that's what it's all about.
