BlackJack is gone, Prairie Schooner is being hatched...

BlackJack is being picked up tomorrow and was adopted by a new family in South Carolina. Plans for Prairie Schooner have been drawn up and noted, pending final changes next week with ETI's release of 2017 options. Several changes are in the pot and will be released soon. I have decided to downsize to a new 19' Escape. There are several personal reasons for this change, one of which is a new addition to the family garage. I had one 50 years ago and decided I wanted one for my birthday. I have to start withdrawing my IRA's and 401 plans this year so I want to enjoy the fruit of my labor, so to speak. Seventy is the new "50" according to my 38 year old daughter!!
Details to follow.

Jim. Whatever you do in life, wherever you go in life, enjoy it. And what pray tell are you adding to the family garage? Safe journeys, Steve M

Man you are just full of surprises. Im not even going to guess what you had 50 years ago. I know I still had a Schwinn Bicycle but then again, you are a lot older than I am. We are happy for you and looking forward to having a schooner under the awning of the Schooner. Best of luck with your completion date, I always knew you were a trendsetter. By the year 2021 I predict you'll be picking up the first new reintroduced Escape 13, pulling with a vintage Bronco like we saw in Townsend, drinking beer out of a shot glass, and have two miniature poodles both black named, Spam and Scrapple. Two foot minus~itis, the future is now.

Not a TA? As Iowa Dave says, you are full of surprises. 50 years ago I had a Honda 50 and a pair of Red Wing boots. Does this mean you will be without a trailer for the next few months? We will all be anxiously awaiting your new build sheet, and the list of planned mods.

Love it! Glad that you're not afraid to change your mind. You influenced our buying a 19 and it has fit us to a tee. No two footings for me. (either up or down)

Congratulations! Hmm, now I'm wondering what it is that will be taking up that garage space... will it have 4 wheels or 2?

Hi: cpaharley2008... You must have put on a lot of wait to need that much room in the garage!!! Besides a 5.0TA wouldn't fit in there anyhoo. The bigger the boys... the bigger the toys. Another H Davidson I presume Alf

Wow sure wasn't expecting you to join the 19er's, but exciting.

Hmmm, a Mustang Shelby. Might want a custom painted Boler to pull along behind that.

Congrats on both decisions!
