Three more Escapes sighted.

This Sunday, on our way to Chilliwack, we spotted 3 more Escapes on I-84 heading East. We were on our way from Salt Lake to Seattle. We saw a 17' and 19' in Idaho, east of Boise. They were a only about 30 minutes apart. Then, in Oregon, near La Grande, we saw another 19. They were all heading East.
We are wondering if they are heading East for some rally?

Where are you guys?

If you've got too many Escape trailers in your area, just invite us down for a visit and they will magically disappear.

For the third time in a row we have been out with our 21' for a multi-week trip and haven't seen a single Escape on the highway or in our campgrounds.

During the past three weeks we've gone from Vancouver Island to Bodega Bay, CA, without spotting any fine craftsmanship from Chilliwack. The molded fiberglass count stands at three Bigfoots, two Casitas, two Bolers, but zero Escapes.

Perhaps all the Escapees headed to Canada this year to enjoy the free access to national parks. Or maybe owners are keeping their Escapes in storage so they will remain "mint in box" like a Barbie or a superhero action figure.

Anyway, if you are towing or camping in your Escape somewhere and spot a couple of seniors overreacting to seeing your trailer, that'll be us.

Happy travels!

On Friday, 9/8, we were driving west on Interstate 16 out of Savannah GA, we passed a 21 being towed by an F150 (Texas tags). While the traffic on I-16 was not bad, it was horrible when we got on I-75 northbound with what appeared to be the entire state of FL and most of Coastal Georgia. I hope you did not get stuck in it. A normal 7 1/2 hour trip took us 14 hours that day.

Looks like the word is out Alf, we've got suprise attendees all the way from the west coast coming to the Falls. It's not just some Rally, it's some Kinda Rally with a capital K and breakfast at Betty's on Sunday morning. Kicked the tires and lit the fires this AM, bringing a big bag full of great weather and cold beer.

I 90 Eastbound New York State Escape 19 Green

On my way west today heading for Chilliwack to pick up Wild Thing! I saw an Escape 19 with green graphics on Interstate 90 heading Eastbound. I was too excited to see the tow vehicle but it was 10:25 AM around exit 318 in New York just past the Junius Ponds Service Area. Such an auspicious sight as I head out to pick up my new baby! Howdy Ho!

We were Westbound on I80 at about 4:30 near mile marker 205 going in to North Platte, NE.
Almost missed what I think was an Escape 19, blue graphics, heading east bound. Always cool spotting one. That occurred yesterday.
