Just saw a brand new 5.0 pulled by a truck with Texas tags at Mission and Hamilton in Spokane - nice looking rig! We rolled down our window at a stoplight and were told they had just picked the trailer up and then the light changed...

My friend just followed this Escape onto the Port Townsend ferry this morning. She said it had Canadian plates.

We passed it going north through Oak Harbour. We were heading south to Port Townsend with our 17.

Deb and I were east on I-80 today at 12:00 noon and spotted an Escape at the RV Hall of Fame Museum in Elkhart, Indiana. Not sure if it was a 19 or 21, but we think it was there to arrange for induction, once it has been retired for 5 years, of course.

That was us at Heartland RV and Campground,9-20,21,22.We have been away from the forum, busy with the new 5.0TA traveling. Departed San Marcos, CA, 8-9, orientation and acceptance of the new Escape 8-19, Banff for 3days, 3 days in Whistler near Jasper (just a parking spot and our solar panel), 6 days in Edmonton, AB, area for family reunion, 6-7 days in Winnipeg, MB, more family, 6 days in Minnesota visiting my sister in Hastings. Then it was heading for home via Badlands, Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, & Custer Park (stayed at Heartland). Don't head into or out of Denver on Friday or Sunday! 47 miles out the traffic was bumper to bumper. First time in 14 yrs of RVing, stayed at a Walmart, Golden, CO. On to Arches National Park, Zion National Park, a stop in the Las Vegas area for quick visit with a son and wife and then the last 6-7 hours to home on 9-28. 7,094 total miles, 5,649 on the new trailer. Increase of 5 - 6 mpg with the 2012 RAM 1500 pulling the 5.0 vs the old Forest River 27 ft Travel trailer (7-8,000 lbs). Andersen Hitch worked great and easy. The Escape 5.0TA was great, hardly knew it was behind us, U-turns were a snap! It has been washed, off to DMV for an inspection and permanent license plate and ready to go again. This was our most scenic trip, 51 days with only 5 days without the sun.

Like Two Ships Passing In the Day!

We were E\B on Hwy. 20 in Duanesburg, NY at 12 noon on Tuesday, Oct. 11 and a 5.0 TA was W/B. Our first view of a 5.0 outside of Chilliwack. Good looking rig being pulled by a dark gray Ford P/U.

Steve, that was us in Chicago and at the RV Hall of Fame. We were on our way home. Left home on 9/6/16 and got home 10/7/16. 31 days, 7445 miles, and 158 hrs of seat time. We had a great trip and we love our new Escape. Other than Steve's 21 we saw two 17's, two 19's, and 5er.

Whew! You certainly wore me out with 7K+ miles! What a fabulous trip. Glad the new Escaping went so well.
