How exciting to read your post, Grant! Lots of good reasons to get to Chilliwack!
Too bad we don't live on the west coast, and we certainly have not had warm t-shirt weather! The past 3-4 days the temps have hovered about 10 - 15 degrees F during the day and today it's been snowing all day and the temp has risen to 9 F. So we've been doing a lot of day dreaming the past few days about our 5.0TA on order (for Sept 2015 delivery).
We are contemplating flying into San Antonio for the rally in April to meet some other escape owners and see the different Escapes that will be there. I think it's been mentioned that Tammy and Reace will also be there with a 5.0TA. We thought we might take a day trip to the rally and then head to Houston to visit with relatives.
Grant & Kathy... enjoy the rest of your planning... we are just beginning.

Holly and I live in Bandera (well, 5 miles out of town) where the rally is taking place. We get out 5.0TA in August but most certainly will also attend the rally in April to get some good ideas. Our build sheet isn't due until June 1 so we will have time for changes. Should you need a place to stay while at the rally please let us know as we have room at the house.

MacMan,
Thank you for your generous offer. We might take you up on it. This is truly an exciting time for all of us and would be great to meet other Escape owners and get ideas. Our build sheet will be due shortly after yours. Thanks a lot! We will be in touch!

We debated the 3 burner vs the 2 burner for awhile. When we realized that at home we rarely if ever use more than 2 burners, and that camping meals are usually simpler than at home, the 2 burner made more sense for us. The added counter space was a bonus too.

We are also planning on a two-burner, with the stove rotated for more counter space. This was the decision of my always-avidly-cooking wife, after evaluating the size of the three burner, and whether she would ever use it.

I am counting the days MacMan. I'm stuck in DC right now, back and forth every week. Looking forward to our month long vacation is making it somewhat tolerable.
