Not an Escape but a Conquerer

We just returned from one of our "bucket list" trips to Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe on a photo safari. It was quite an experience and I highly recommend it! While there we spotted a Conquerer in a remote campsite. I have seen these on the internet but never in person. The campers were from South Africa and very accommodating. Very nice rig!

I purchased some custom parts for my car online so Ted and I decided to take our 17B down to Tulalip for a couple of days to avoid paying any duty. I mentioned to Ted that when I was in the U.S. a couple of weeks ago, I saw an Escape 21 parked at Bobs Burgers in Sumas. He wondered out loud if we might pass any Escapes on our short jaunt down.

The Tulalip casino lets you camp in their RV lot for free and if you register with security, you can get a free pass at the front desk for the pool and hot tub! (Cabellas and Walmart also allow RV's) Unfortunately for the casino, we're cheap guests because we don't gamble and though I may lose my woman card by admitting this, I have absolutely no interest in shopping at the Outlet Mall!

Anyways, as we headed to our preferred slot to park, guess who was parked next door? An older Escape 17B with BC plates! After a short conversation with the owners, we learned they had searched for a used one and ending up driving to Alberta to buy it. Even though our trailers are both 17B's, with the higher axle, larger tires, solar panel etc., our's seemed to dwarf theirs. Plus they had only a single battery and single propane tank mounted up front. Note to Reace: the owner was very impressed with your front storage box! Here's a few pic's for comparison.

While coming back from my grandsons Halloween Parade at his school I saw what I thought was an old fiberglass trailer in an abandoned farmhouse yard. Had to go back and look. It was a very old Argossy metal trailer. I only post this in case anyone out there knows somebody who is looking for something like this. They could contact me and I would find out what I could about it. It's about 25'miles SE of Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

What a surprise to come back to Valley of Fires Recreation Area from our day trip yesterday and find Jon Vermilye parked next to us! Jon graciously gave us a tour of his 17' when he stopped in Tupelo, MS in 2013. Shortly after that, we placed our order! It was great to visit with him again.

I have found this to be a common occurrence, because the Argosy model from Airstream was curved (just like the regular Airstream, but similar to a moulded fiberglass trailer such as a Boler) and painted white.
