The tipping point has tipped - I'm in

Today my wife and I visited three new friends in Georgia's God country - the Unicoi region of the North Georgia Mountains. Ike&Gae and their friend Jennifer spent alot of time with my wife and I answering questions and giving input on their Escape trailers. I'd like to thank them for their time and information. All the way home Karen and I talked about the "Oh The Places You Will Go" as we planned our (oh, please forgive me for this horrible pun) "escape" (I don't believe I typed that)

We are planning a visit to the factory in May, but between now and then we will be asking jillions of questions. I promise I will try to search and see if a question has been asked and answered but considering I'm pretty lazy and ya'll like to answer questions I don't think there will be an issue. See ya'll around!

Hope I am able to answer some of your questions. I received so much incredible help during the year wait for my 17--and then help after picking it up--would so much like to repay! This forum is awesome--incredible knowledge and generosity!

If you two are heading this way in May, you could poke your heads into the rally. Time schedules permitting of course.

Now I want a Pina Colada.

Don't search too deeply, I need something to do for the rest of the winter.

Ever been to Fort Yargo State Park in WInder? planning on staying there early March while we visit Athens.
Happy Motoring

Richard, good for you and the wife! Yes, many of us purchased ETI builds because we want to go-go-go! I know I don't make any terrific memories sitting on the coach. Oh the future places you'll see and memories you'll make once you're an owner.

I too would like to pay it forward. But, if you want to check things out yourself... I think you could spend days on the "It's Friday" thread. Great explanations, beautiful pictures and you can just feel the owners excitement.

Great Decision Richard and Karen! Good luck when orders open up. I'm very much of a newly too, and reading this forum is the best education you can get as you prepare !

Congrats on your decision, Richard. You could not get much friendlier folks than Ike and Gae to show you around their trailer.
