Trees in FL

Know it is somewhat cruel, but needed to show you our latest mod. We purchased extra "contact" from Escape during our build to match the stripes on side. Created pattern, cut trees out with fingernail scissors. You'll know us going down the road if you can extract your Escapes from snow banks and flee south as we did!
Happy Trails,
John & Diane

Very nice! Your pictures aren't warming us up any.
We want to put a custom decal on our escape when the snow melts. Does anyone know of a good place to order one? My daughter is designing the graphics.

Shop locally. There are at least two dozen places in Portland, OR that do decals for vehicles, typically businesses. Besides, you can go in and talk F-2-F and they'll tell you exactly what they need to give you the best price.

Nicely done, and good thinking to get matching stock to make the trees.

Very nice. Saw you applying the trees in Ruskin, and would have stopped for a chat, but it looked like you had already drawn a crowd.

Hi: Trees... That's the thing we need more of here in Ft.Myers Beach Florida. Seems every severe storm takes out more and they never get replanted. Space is at a premium. We did visit a nice State Pk. Oscar Schreyer St.Pk., already booking up for 2015 though!!! There were a few Fiberglass units hiding in the trees there. Alf

Hi: Trees... What's a good day to come over and meet? Wouldn't mind a tour of Shady Acres with a view for next winter. Sure is hard to beat the weather down here. Alf
