Two other Escapes were camped at Green Point in Pacific Rim National Park on May 12 and 13: a 5.0TA in Site 87, with a RAM pickup as TV; and an Escape 17 in Site 45, towed by a VW SUV. We didn't intrude on the owners' privacy and enjoyment of that beautiful campground, but it was nice to see some Escapes among the SOBs. Counting our Escape 21, three quarters of the current Escape product line was represented there on those nights.

I had a pretty good look at a beautiful Escape 21 this morning. It was the Spirit of the Plains, piloted by Loren P. and it came down my driveway. We had a good visit. He was on his way back to Kansas. He's got a very nice 21 and he pulls it with a good looking GMC pickup that's loaded with accessories including a 50 gallon fresh water tank. Might have been cheating as a sighting but it was great to meet Loren. He was listening to the Willis Bros doing Give me Forty acres as he circled the propane tank and headed for the Sundlower state. Thanks for stopping Loren, that was fun.

In Livermore, Ca.

At 11:45 am today, Debbie saw an Escape northbound on Arroyo Rd. at the intersection of Concannon. She thinks it had red graphics and had a couple of bikes on the back. Was that you Art M? Maybe coming back from a long weekend?

Hi Catchlight. That was me in site 45 with the 17B, I thought the same thing, I didn't want to intrude on someone's privacy. LOL;I guess we shouldn't be so shy!

Must be a Canadian thing! As an "Ugly American" I've walked right up and introduced myself if folks were outside.

When Escapes are as common as SOBs, I'll worry about privacy. Till then, I want to know who owns that cool trailer....

And always remember a stranger is just a friend you haven't met yet.

After folks meet me, only then do they realize I am stranger.

Jim I believe you have a typo, you must have inadvertently put an "r" on the end of strange

That's how I feel when out on a trail. When passing someone, I almost always say "Hello" or "Good morning" first but many times don't even get a response. Although hoofing it alone, I must look like the Trailside Slasher.

David H, you've got a deal: next time we see you camped we'll drop in, and we encourage you to do the same if you spot us. The couple with the 5 TA at Green Point later took the initiative and introduced themselves. The next evening we polished off a bottle of wine around their campfire, and got to see the beautiful mods they've done to their trailer.

We were walking down the sidewalk on the narrow streets of Biltmore Village in Asheville and a 17' drives by us. They went around the block and appeared to be looking for a parking space but disappeared after not finding one. I waved and Cheryl laughed and asked if I really thought they knew why I was waving.

We enjoyed a 10 day trip to southern UT last week. We spent 3 nights in Kodachrome Basin S.P., 3 in Bryce N.P. and 2 at the Forest Service campground in Red Canyon. We did several good hikes and enjoyed camping in our 17B. On the 8th, while we were checking out the Red Canyon campground (for use later in the trip), we spotted a 19 in one of the sites. No one appeared to be around--we would have enjoyed meeting fellow Escape owners. Anyone traveling in that area around that time?

Today was a great day for viewing Escape trailers on the road. Just after I crossed the border into Canada I saw a 17 hauled by the ETI red pickup truck (assumed it was theirs as it was definitely overkill for a 17 and it had Canadian plates while the trailer didn't have any), heading to Sumas for delivery. A bit behind it was a Voodoo blue FJ Cruiser. When I got to the factory shortly after that, a new customer told me the guy was from Alabama and was there to pick up his new trailer. Yay for him!

Heading home later that day an Escape pulled off I5 just south of Bellingham - probably heading towards Anacortes. I believe it had red graphics, but I don't know the tow vehicle as there was a ton of traffic I had to concentrate on. Plus, they were in front of me.

Farther south on 5, I saw what I think was a 21' without graphics heading north. I don't know the trailers enough to recognize if it was an actual Escape or another brand. Nor am I 100% on the size unless I see the graphics that tell me what it is.

Saw several Scamps and another unknown fiberglass trailer. Great weather for camping!

And, of course I saw WADS of trailers at the factory, but those don't really count as I knew I'd see 'em there. I'm making several reports on my visit there today, in separate threads.

Hello Dave: That would have been us, Mike and Sandra from Laramie, Wyoming. We were in spot 22, one of the best in the campground from our perspective as it was far enough from Hwy 12 that traffic noise was not an issue. In addition, you cannot really see any of the other camp sites from that spot. We are just back from a 3 week trip, 5 nights in Zion, 7 in Bryce, 5 in Capital Reef, and 1 in Arches among other stops along the way. The Red Canyon Forest Service campground on Hwy 12 is a great base for exploring Bryce as it is only 15 minutes from the entrance to the park. There are also some really nice hikes right out of the campground and others just outside of it.

Thanks for your reply and we're sorry that we were not able to connect with you. Glad that you had a good trip!! Southern UT has been a fairly frequent destination for us for many years as it''s right in our backyard. We have driven through Red Canyon many times on our way to Bryce, but had never stopped there. We agree with you that it is very pleasant (without the crowds of Bryce) and we certainly enjoyed the hike we did there. Hope to meet you in the future!
Dave
