2nd Escape home in Michigan

In Oct. we had two Escapes parked in our driveway: our original 2013 Escape 19 (Trees) and our new to us 2021 Escape 5.0. We returned from purchasing 5.0 from AZ Jack and spending 5 weeks in AZ & UT Nat'l Parks. So grateful to Jack & Nancy for giving us the opportunity to continue "Escaping" after Diane's spinal fusion surgery and checking this trip off our Bucket List !
It fits our new age appropriate needs perfectly. The Escape 19 will go on the sale block when we return from FL in April. Until then, it will rest in the pole barn and our new baby gets to travel.

Rita owned two at once, both bought from AZJack and Nancy. They’re pictured in the avatar. Sold the 19 in 11 hours. To the nephew of bandleader Glenn Miller.
Merry Christmas

Hey Alf,
Go out in the yard an dig up another coffee can full of silver dimes you buried years ago before the frost makes you use a jackhammer.
Have fun on your snowbird trip this year. We will be looking out the window at our snowbirds (black eyed juncos) and eating ice cream we keep on the porch.

We remember meeting you at Niagara rally probably 2015. Jack and Nancy are great people and spoke fondly of you. Looking forward to crossing paths with you some time.

It is a little disheartening to read about owners with medical issues, myself included, that preclude full enjoyment of their Escapes.....

We met you at the 2015 rally also, can't forget your "lighting the trees above you." Yes Jack and Nancy are great. Six years ago we had a visit with them at their home.

TV as in tow vehicle, not television. It's a common mistake.:

We had our first snow November 10, still here, only a little more since. It would be nice to get some more, especially for Christmas. It was -30C the other night only warming to -20, but it's milder now (0C).

Dana & Daphne. :-). We have our own TV: Dodge Ram Hemi.
But the 12 volt TV is cool for news, weather in morning when spending night in transit at WM or Cabelas!
