Who Dat?

While researching a trip to Rocky Mountain NP next year I stumbled across this photo on the Grand Lake Chamber of Commerce site. Sure looks like an Escape to me.

That sure is an Escape and it looks like a 19 to me. Obviously campers with fine taste and a photographer with a keen eye.

Armchair traveling is nice, but it's much nicer to be there to enjoy all the sensory pleasure camping has to offer. Looking forward to the Lake Casitas rally the end of this month.

An Escape 19 with the opening bathroom window option, the storage box option, the A/C option, Spectra Red graphics, and an F-150 tow vehicle with a camper shell and a Thule carrier. Someone fess up.

Seriously, that is all you got? I would think that minimally you should note the truck tire make, and engine too.

True, but my vision isn't what it used to be.

Did I mention the porch light on the driver side and the roof venting (so therefore a late model) for the fridge?

It was also taken in the last 2 years. Colorado has had a beetle infestation and the campground was closed for a year and wooded before that.

You are all wrong. This has been Photoshopped. Some clever individual inserted a picture of his/her Escape into this landscape, to cover the Airstream that is really there!

If you zoom in a little you can probably see all. Might be able to even read the license plate. Here you go.



and, ta da, the license plate.



OK, possibly not fool proof.

Well, you proved they are not from Alberta, as we don't have front license plates. This narrows it done a lot.

But Jim, it could be Alberta. The front plate might be one of those cutesy plaques that says something like "Retired. No clocks, no worries," or "I love my Poodle!" So much for narrowing it down......

We need one of those magical enhancement software programs like they always use on TV and the movies.

I've seen those magical software enhancement commercials on TV, but they ain't talkin about software, more like hardware. : Hopefully the owner of that sweet rig will chime in here soon and enlighten us all.
