Jim, i know how hard this part of the wait is. So close but so far away. It just makes the arrival that much more sweeter!

Jim, I sincerely hope that your trips with BlackJack never involve the kind of challenges that Dave is facing just delivering it to you!

BlackJack is in Illinois tonite, Dave is dropping off the one 21 and will continue to Goshen where he will drop off his trailer and continue on to York with BlackJack on the truck's flat bed. We are a 11 hour+ drive from Illinois, so Wednesday is my estimate, which is good because we are expecting 3-5" snow Tuesday am.

Dave is earning every nickle. He knows he's got treasured cargo on board and I can't even imagine the white knuckles! But if anyone delivers on days as close-as-to-be-expected, I would think it's a delivery from Escape Trailer Industries. Be safe Dave!!! (thinking of you Jim).

Agreed, he left one week ago, tomorrow and 3000 miles in 6 days in the winter is great.

THAT is moving right along on sunny days and more than I'd want to do for that length of time. WOW.

Well we got hit with 6" of the white stuff today, I just came in from clearing off the 10x20 pad in the rear. Have to wait for the plow to do the alley before getting out the snow blower and make a path for BlackJack in the neighbor's yard before backing it into my yard. With the temperature dropping most of the stuff will be here for awhile. I'm hoping sometime tomorrow to see Dave and BlackJack.

Your delivery makes ours seem like a piece of cake. I was stressed watching ours come across the country but I think I'm more stressed watching and reading about yours. Looks like the snow is moving out of your area so hopefully he will get to you tomorrow. Remember to take delivery pictures.

Well, the story gets better. The first Escape was dropped off in Illinois this am and Dave was going to Goshen, In to drop off the empty truck trailer and then head here to Pennsylvania. I tried calling the mx but got no answer.
Anyway, when asked why it took so long to get thru Customs, Dave said it was because of my Escape. Customs went thru it for close to 3 hours. He said it was the same last year when he brought my 19' across.

This was unbeknown to me. The reason is because it is noted on US Customs record that my identity had been stolen. This happened about 4 years ago over some fraudulent credit card purchases. I now have a special code assigned to my account, which, if I had known, I could have given to Dave.
I guess I'll have something to look forward to when crossing the border. Oh well, the saga continues…...
