Chilliwack or Bust Sept 30, 2009!

Sometime in the next few weeks, were gonna try to post a link to a Google Map of our planned route up & back for anyone that might be interested in our jouney. Also, suggested camping sites along route are welcomed.

We plan to arrive in Chilliiwack on Sept 30 & stay a night or two. Then well take 2-3 weeks slow-boating our way back to TX while visiting family, friends, & lots of sights. Planned stops include: Glacier, Yellowstone, Grand Teton & Rocky Mtn Natl Parks. Hopefully we wont encounter too much early winter weather. Palo Duro Canyon in the TX panhandle will be the last sight-seeing stop.

If anyone happens to be in the Chilliwack area during our pickup or somewhere along our route, let us know if youre interested in trying to meet up with us. Wed love to put faces to the names we see on the forum. Edgar has already told us he's gonna try to meet up with us in Rocky Mtn Natl Park.

We hope to post some pics (& updates) from the road... However, dont hold your breath. At a minimum, well post some pics when we get back to TX.

Brad

Re: Chilliwack or Bust Sept 30, 2009!

It'd sure be nice to have 6 weeks to really explore each park, I'm just gracious we can swing the 3 weeks to pick up the trailer & not have to drive super long days to get it back home. Given the time constraints & distance we have to cover, we realize that we're only gonna get a small taste of each of the parks. But it'd be too hard to just drive by them without at least making a cursory visit of a day or two. Plus it'll help us prioritize which one to get back to for a longer stay next year.

btw - On the way up, we're hoping to catch the tail end of the fall colors in the Rockies before the aspens drop their leaves.

Re: Chilliwack or Bust Sept 30, 2009!

Congratulations on your 19' Brad and Shay!! I'm sure you are going to be just as thrilled with yours as those of us who have our Escapes already. And what a testimonial to the quality of the Escape that you're traveling from Texas!

Have a wonderful time on your leisurely trip back home

Sweeeeeeeet... It's awesome to see pics to make it feel more real rather than vapor.

Thanks for taking the pics and posting them for us Glenn. You rock! Would it be possible for you to email the full resolution pics (including the one of Tammy & Reace in our 19) to us for our soon to be started photo album?

Also, let us all know if the new converter did ultimately solve your battery/electrical issues you had been having.

Brad

BTW - Jim, I'm getting even more stoked now!

Re: Chilliwack or Bust Sept 30, 2009!

Well... We got a final confirmation from Tammy the other day that the 9/30 date is still a go for our 19.
So after a couple of frantic days of packing, we're loading up and hitting the road today. Woohoo!
