We're HOME!

After 74 days on our maiden voyayage.... We pulled into our driveway at 5:00 on Wednesday.
11,000 + miles, 770 gallons of gas and memories to last forever!!
As soon as we catch our breath we will post a trip report.
We'd like to thank the forum members for their help in sharing their experiences and advice on the options they chose. That was so very helpful to newbies like us! And to Tammy and Reace and their great crew on a great product and fabulous Customer Service!
Here's to great travels for everyone!

Way to go, Charlie and Lucy,
Sounds like one of our grand trans-continental trips--three so far to B.C. including twice to Osoyoos.
We have visited friends who live in Newbury at the south end of the Lake. I figure that can't be too far from you. Last trip we had our 21' and spent a night there. Next time we're in the area, we'll look you up. Consider coming to the annual gathering next May. It's great fun, and if you need any warranty attention, you can make an appointment for that before or after the weekend.

Welcome home and what a trip. As for being newbies, you guys are some pretty seasoned travelers by now. It seems like a long time back that we camped next door to you in Bayview State Park. A big thanks again to hosting us as your guests that night. Loren

As our members grow with ETI we may someday be able to "caravan" our way to Osoyoos, imagine a string of Escapes traveling across the Great Plains on their annual migratory trip back to where they came. Similar to the monarch butterfly or the upstream salmon run, groups of trailers all traveling together to one spot.

Wow, colour me officially jealous. That sounds like a fantastic trip.

Hi Bill & Earline,
We are near the north end of the lake. Please check in when you are in this area. It's good to be home but it won' be restful for a while. All that fall cleanup. We're already itchy to get back out there. We are considering the Osoyoos experience. Next trip is still in the planning stage. Definitely not staying here all winter so after some camping in the southwest mid-winter into spring with friends we might swing up to Osoyoos. Will register soon.
Loren & Cathy,
It was great (if brief) camping with you guys. We will have to do it some more. No, we're not newbies anymore. We know what to bring and not bring now. After emptying and cleaning our Casa Blanca it will be better organized for the next trip.
Jim,
We'll pick up up for the "Big Caravan" as we pass by!

I get too stressed to be involved in any caravan.
Even traveling with my buddy, we just set a destination. I don't need to keep them in sight, or try to find a place to pull over because they had to stop for gas.
And, I feel safer if I don't have to worry about keeping up.

The caravans I have read about soon gave up on travelling together on the road and also found it to be a problem as far as holding up other traffic. They tend to set a destination and meet there, some early, some late.
