Where is Ron Smith?

Does anyone know what happened to Ron Smith? He was posting in mid 2009 but I have not seen any recent posts.

He was planning to take delivery of an Escape 19 in 2009, and his website shows that he was off to Alaska, but no sign since.

I hope he is all right.

Brian

He is in Utah, apparently safe and sound.

Re: Where is Ron Smith?

Hi all
I never did Escape.. had one on order but was allowed to back out.
I have my old egg and a new knee.
Spent all 2010 limping and didn't even go anywhere.
I know some of you followed me around Southeast AK in 09 and even posted comments in my blog http://ronsalaska.blogspot.com/ but RVwest magazine was also following me and they did a cover story this month http://www.rvwest.com/emagazine
Some of the 600 photos I took are at pbase.com/troron/alaska_09 and fun trailer stuff at pbase.com/troron/casita

Sorry.. cant make links work


Thanks for asking about me, Brian

Ron

Re: Where is Ron Smith?

Ron:

Thank you for helping us understand what happened and resolving the mystery. I'm sorry about your knee and hope that 2011 will be better for you! I'm glad that at least you are still kicking!

Perhaps there will still be an Escape in your future...

Brian

Re: Where is Ron Smith?

Alf, if there is nothing to remind us of our fortune or if we cannot really fathom the liberties we enjoy in our country or if we can in no way dig the power and freedom of the internet then... if.. then if we cannot internalize any of that then you and I who are bionic would at least understand that two generations ago our grandfathers would have been limping around on a cane at an early age would probably have given up a life of pain and immobility and would have died quietly of despair.

Mobility is life
Mobility is life
Mobility is life

just sayin
