I can certainly see starting a gathering in California and posting the particulars here. But, then also post on FiberglassRV and the CasitaForum. Wouldn't it be awful if there was a gathering going on and you passed by just by a few miles, because you didn't know about it? Oh my.

I think we can set it up on the "Groups" tab ourselves. We just need to name our group...and I don't see the snobbery that Donna was refering to at all. There are three groups established on this forum already that are geographic and of course "Escape" because this is what this forum is about. I like the idea because it will give us an opportunity to get to know each other...and camp together!.

So should we ask the webmaster for a California group? I'm a little apprehensive that it might languish if we don't check it. Other options are a Facebook page. Thoughts from fellow Californians?

Donna, I couldn't disagree with you more. Just because we want to get to know other Escape owners in California and maybe get together shouldn't obligate us to have to reach out to the other forums to include them...and you shouldn't lay the guilt on us for not doing it.

Wow, really? You think I'm making you feel guilty? That's a new one on me. I thought guilt came from within.

But, maybe you should check with Greg Janke. He owns an Escape. Tried to join a "brand specific" campout and this is what happened (items I recevied by email):

.....call the rv park at ....., what's-her-name had already gotten me tossed out of the rally area and they pulled my rally discount..... They have an overflow row for mongrels.

AND yes, this was an molded towable group. Sad huh?

No I don't feel guilty at all and it's best that I keep most of my thoughts on this to myself but I'm sure now you've pretty much torpedoed a good idea here.

I'm not trying to torpedoe anything, honest. I was just providing a caution. I've been on the receiving end of exclusivity. It's not a comfortable place to be. Think about it for a moment. If you keep everything between yourselves, what would you gain and what would you possibly lose. Right now we have at least two Escape owners on long term travels. Jon V, and Anne H., neither live in California. IF you were to hold some sort of campout and didn't publish it, there would be a chance they miss you. And, that's all I'm saying.

Remember, not all Escape owners belong to the Escape Forum. Some find FiberglassRV enough. And there are Casita owners who never show up here, but have more than a passing interest in Escapes.

And, that's all I'm saying...

How does it go? "It's a free country"?
Means you can go ahead and form a group, but it also means that others can disagree on the merits.

I concur. I have been warmly welcomed at both Casita and Scamp gatherings where the Escape was the "off brand". There is nothing to prevent the Escape owners from getting to know each other. I belong to "the more the merrier" group. Besides, it is amazing what very useful information can be learned, not to mention the fun.

I believe camping is camping, regardless of your rig. Whether you're in a tent or a million dollar tour bus, we all drink from a garden hose and use a dump station. Understand, respect and enjoy. It's all recreation. There's one in every crowd. Just try not to step in it.
