One year today

Our Escape 5.0 is one year old today. We celebrated with a blueberry muffin at breakfast. Our trailer has traveled 18,000 miles and we will get approximately 5000 to 6000 more miles on it before we arrive home in mid September. We are currently in Valdez, AK. It's been a cool, wet summer, but we are enjoying our trip immensely.

Re: One year today

Congratulations Marv & Vicki,

What a journey! Sandy and I are in southeast Wyoming in the Snowy Range dry camping@ 10,000. We've covered 5696 miles so far. Nothing like your travels. This is longest we've ever been out. You are having quite a trip and we want to hear all about it when we see you. We will be camping our way back to the heat of Texas and home next week.
Travel safe.

David & Sandy

Re: One year today

Wow! Congratulations Marv and Vicki on your anniversary and your long trip!

When we saw you at the beginning of June in Osoyoos I had no idea that you were going to be away from home that long.

Happy traveling!

Brian

Re: One year today

Thanks everyone for your kind replies. It sure has been fun. Although, a few days after the big birthday, the refrigerator quite working. Refrigerant leaked out and a terrible ammonia smell engulfed the trailer. All is well now, we aired out the trailer and are now living out of a cooler with ice. It brings back the old days. I guess we will take care of the refrigerator when we reach a big city. We are headed for Sitka tonight on the ferry.

Re: One year today

Beautiful pic of your 5.0 and truck in front of the lake and the cloud capped mountains in the background.

Look forward to the rest of the photos when you post them!
