After a 6 year break do to my wife's ill health, and her passing away in 2010, I purchased my 17B. I've been doing long trips every year since. I travel to see the country & take photographs of some of the most beautiful places on earth. For anyone interested, I've keep on line journals of many of the trips (both tenting & with the Escape) linked here.
And you do a great job of it Jon, and provide a wonderful service to those of us who take fewer photos. Thanks for the bit of personal history.

I can't remember the first time I camped. My Dad says I was two, and he took me camping/fishing at Schofield Reservoir near Soldiers Summit in Utah. Been doing it, in one form or another, ever since - but not nearly enough as I'd like.

Despite the amenities we now enjoy when we do camp, the primary appeal for me is that I get a sense of being reconnected to what is real - instead of the technologically driven modern metro world I have to live in most of the time. I always come back a better man - and it's cheaper than psychology.

I think it was Greg who earlier said the connection with pack packing and the progression to camping and a trailer. I too have been a lifetime packer and a family camper. I don't believe there is any better way to connect with your family, than with camping. It must be the closeness, simplicity, teamwork, and reliance on each other, but it works. I also like the sense of self-containment. In pack packing, you have everything you need on you back, and I like that feeling. When camping, you have everything you need in your trailer. I can't wait for April!
