Just have to share this around.
We left Victoria July 26/10, and were on the road for 100 days (92 of which were spent in the trailer), during which time we were as far south as Chicago, as far west as Burwash Landing YT, as far north as Dawson City, and as far east as Ottawa. We didn't experience even a soft tire. With the exception of a burned out bulb outside the trailer door, everything performed flawlessly. And we had support on the road from Tammy and Reace -- when I tore the propane tank cover by accident (sometimes I don't know my own strength, even in my 8th decade!), they mailed another to us at an upcoming stop. It was also a learning experience, especially of the pitfalls of not making sure the trailer and the tow vehicle are level and in line with one another before unhitching (having parked with the car's rear wheels in an invisible dip in the ground at a Toronto-area park). Hitching up again resembled an aircraft-carrier landing in its need for precision and planning!
A high point of the trip (though not part of the Escape experience) was the phone call we received in Dawson City from our daughter & son-in-law in Toronto -- they're expecting (first child, first grandchild for us) in late April, so here's another reason to take off with the trailer in the spring and go visit the new family.
My wife's blog goes into more detail if anyone would like to have a look at the Yukon as seen through the camera of these two retirees! <http://idohaveamap.blogspot.com/>
