I’m just kidding, everybody is always welcome.
At Land Between the Lakes a couple years ago two fellows stopped by about 2 hours after the tours were over. The older guy apologized for missing the window and asked if he could look at the outside of the Escape. Rita immediately offered to show him the interior. He went in the Escape, his friend stood off a few feet almost as if he was a little embarrassed by his friend. About 15 seconds later the door opened and the older man called to his friend, “Hey Jimmy, you got to see this, it’s like a hotel in here”. They stayed for about 20 minutes and then they were gone but they really liked the Escape. We’ve had a great time meeting people and making new friends since we got the 19 in 2013 and look forward to attending the Osoyoos rally agin this year. It will be number 5 for us. It’s a 5000 mile trip for us. To be able to do this in our retirement years makes the years of work make sense and worthwhile.

We are on the fence right now, some other issues out west may need attending to. We have been there 2014/2015/2017/2019 with 3 new Escapes where as your Escapes have been there more than 5 times, No?

Yes the Escapes themselves could find their own way from Tucson or from Iowa. In addition when we went to the Rocky Mountain Rendezvous west of Fort
Collins, two years ago, our 19 we originally bought From AZ Jack was there with its new owner. We had the 21 we got from AZJack in August of 2017 and Jack and Nancy were there with their new 17. I know other owners regularly experience seeing previously owned trailers too. It’s all part of the experience.

Sorry I missed you Carl, that was long trip for you. We may stay on this side of the river this year.... and thanks for verifying my memory, I have been in a Corona beer induced fog trying to ward off that Corona virus........)

On that particular day, you were the winner.

The fun begins...we just got an email stating that we are bumped out of our spot # C38 that we reserved Dec 17th.

Reminds us of a Seinfeld episode where the company knows how to take a reservation...they just donít know how to keep a reservation.

They now have us in a spot way to close to the sani-dump for our liking.

I guess I will be on the phone tomorrow...

I had a kid out of college working for me when we opened up this market for Pac Bell who must have read Dale Carnegie's "How to Win Friends..." He got the address of the Customer Care person who assigned mobil numbers, sent flowers & chocolates and got all the custom phone numbers he wanted.

And what ever became of that young man? Can you remember if his name was Jim Norman?
I wonder if he sent candy to ladies his whole life?

That stuff can be dangerous at your advanced age. I’m not responsible. And if it lasts more than 4 hours call a physician.

Same thing happened here.

We received a similar email this morning indicating that we had "accidentally" been booked into a site (C65) that had been blocked off for Escape and that we were being kicked out to a different site. New site is n43, which I am assuming is right behind the showers, across from the store. (there are no "n" letter designations on the map.) Hopefully it is a good site.

If that is supposed to be C43, we are in C42 up above the entrance. We really like that location and specifically asked for it.

I did a little research last night and found that the sani-dump was further away than I had first thought by the site map. I would expect the photo was taken from C44 ish.
