I think a "Kilo'scape" (which I think should be Kiloscape or maybe Kilo-scape) would be a thousand times the size of a base Escape - ten times wider, ten times longer, and ten times taller. Imagine the kilotug!

It was really interesting to see them all lined up in various stages of construction and with addresses for all over North America. Reace said the line moves forward every 8.5 hours. The paperwork is taped to the side of the trailer with any special instructions. With only a thousand spread out and most of them in the Northwest, if I spotted one here in the Midwest, I would feel like I won the lottery. But by this time next year there will be three that I know of in the KC metro area. Loren

How did we get from Escape History to metric system use? Don't answer that...
I'll bet we are taking about food soon...

ETI is definitely doing well if they are to the point where they can complete almost 1 trailer a day!

At the next Escape rally, everyone brings their favorite dish, a
kilopotlock, yes! But, every one really does have to come.

I don't have a favourite dish, I like all food. Yes, some is better though.

I think every Escape owner should come to the rally, though we might have to find a bigger venue, as I has sure seen it grow over the years, since that first one.

I am still miffed that the US has not adopted the metric system, even after my 5th grade teacher, Miss Kessler, promised me that it would be happening very soon. That was in 1960.

I am a cyclist, so I changed all my bicycle computers to show speed and distance in kilometers rather than miles. I am much faster now -- I average "25" instead of "15". and I go much farther now too. When I rode across the country, my blog reported all my distances in kilometers, which drove dear wife crazy until she finally figured them out.

I would be very happy to have a 6.5 meter trailer rather than a 21...
