Donna's correct. They'll post there when registration opens. It's not as hectic as the Bluebonnet Rally or Pineknot though - you should find a space no problem, even if you register late.

Thanks! I will keep watching. We stayed at Matagorda last January. Quite windy but very nice. There was an Airstream rally forming as we were leaving. It's a popular place.

Houston escape sighting

A 15 or 17 escape sighted in Houston BC July 6. We passed by on Hwy 16 with our 19 on the way to Terrace and you were stopped at the big fly rod. Orry no pics.this is the first escape we have seen in thee parts other than ours.

The next day caught rainbow trout on dry fly at Seeley lake between Smithers and Terrace. Great fishing that lake with the mountains around. Weedy so don't try trolling.

Escape 19 sighted in Thunder Bay, ON

Saw an Escape 19 turning from Hwy 17 west to Hwy 61 South towards US Minnesota border Wednesday early evening. First Escape I've seen in these parts except ours.

Two Escapes???

Heading west on I80, just outside of Carlin, Nevada, and spotted a 19' or 21', sporting a red Cardinal graphic on the front, heading east. About ten minutes later, we believe we saw another 19' or 21' Escape heading east as well. (The highway was divided so we couldn't be 100% certain it was an Escape however, it was definitely a fiberglass .).

We've been on the road for over two weeks, California to South Dakota via Nevada, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming and Utah, and have only seen a handful of fiberglass trailers.

I usually make a prediction each morning on what we will see for fiberglass trailers that day. It's usually something like one scamp and two casitas, or two scamps
and an unknown like a boler, Trillium, Burro or whatever. I am very rarely correct. Average
350 mile day would be about 1.5 fiberglass trailers per day counting the campground occupants. Of course it goes up within about 50 miles of a rally, before or after a rally. We
Did see a TA in Glacier this year that had been at Osoyoos three days earlier.

Leaving Winnemucca, NV, and spotted another Escape 19' getting off the highway. We waved but not sure if they saw us. What are the chances of seeing three Escapes in such a short time frame?!

But not sure if seeing three is a bad omen. As we were turning towards the on ramp, our truck made a 'clunk' and started shaking. Then the screeching and grinding when we turn started. Made it to the KOA in town and will wait for the mechanic to open tomorrow ....

Clunk, screech, and grind on turns sounds are bearing sounds if the race broke and the bearings got out......

Certainly a possibility.

I'm interested in hearing how this turns out... hopefully in a new and separate thread.
