Escape Owners Facebook Page

I think it would be a great idea to have a closed Facebook page similar to the Casita Owners FB page. They currently have over 2500 owners, former owners and wannabes enrolled. The current Escape FB page does not seem to have very much activity. Keep it simple and call it "Escape Owners". Our forum is great for technical stuff, but the FB page would be for lighter topics. Just saying...

Explain.
Why do I want to go to two places instead of one?

If you take half the traffic from this site to Facebook, Facebook will earn more ad revenue and this site will earn less.
Revenue, as little as it is, is what sustains this forum.

Nice thought, but for me the forum is great. It's like a close knit family. Whatever help is needed, technical or not, there are always "family members" willing to help. Loving this forum and their members!!

I respect everyone's input, and the forum is a great resource. What I have found is that FB seems to have more realtime responses to "headed to XYZ nNational Park...can't wait to get there!", with a response like " Yikes! I live near there and I just heard the park is closed due to bad weather", or "We will be there too! We are in site xx. Let's get together".

I believe both formats can co-exist without any issues.

And like every close knit family, there are a certain amount of.... well, let's just say misfits...

...but honestly, I am trying to be better.

I agree, but I also cringe when I see those posts both on FB and in a forum. In today's society you really shouldn't ever reveal where you are going to be at in any kind of Internet venue. The criminal element knows your house is empty and where you are located to hit your trailer when you are sightseeing.

Folks need to be way more cautious when traveling and post in public venues where you went after you get back. If there are particular people you want to come meet you then PM, email, or call them and let them know where you'll be. Sorry for the personal security rant, but it is something everyone needs to keep in mind.

If you do set up a Facebook page, can you make it so it filters cats?
