Sighting in Yellowstone

We were traveling in just our Ford F-250 in Yellowstone today and along the Yellowstone River we passed a 5.0TA going in the other direction. Think it was pulled by a red F150. Charlie honked at them but of course we weren't pulling ours!

That's how I feel most of the
time, I don't know if I am coming or going.

Maybe we need to organize an FJ Escape rally?

I am on my way to Chilliwack to pick up my 5.0 TA, and saw an Escape 19 eastbound on highway 11 west of Rocky Mountain House about 1 pm today. Gave me happy thoughts about towing my own in a few days!

I am a good boss and would have given myself some time off for a coffee.

Sounds like you guys are having a great trip, Jasper and Banff National Parks are packed with gorgeous places to see, eh?

We were in White Lake last Thurs which is near Salmon Arm but may not have been us you saw, our truck is red.

We saw quite a number of Escapes after Osoyoos and spoke to several of the owners we ran into on our trip to Jasper.
The couple from Seattle, for example, in their 15' in Clearwater and the Ontario group with their 19' we talked to briefly as they were leaving Whistlers campground in Jasper.

It seems the easy introduction to initiating a conversation is "Were you at the rally?"

Hey Lance.

Likely not, this was definitely on the Sunnybrae road, Sunday towards dinner time. Looking up White Lake PP now.

Today, northbound I83 in Maryland, pulled over on shoulder was Vella and Glen with their 21' Escape "Walden" having some trouble with their awning unfurling. Stopped and we chatted and after securing the awning, they got back on the road.

We were in Yellowstone 6/4 - 6/9 in our 21 staying at Fishing Bridge where there was a 5.0TA in D loop (we got stuck in one of the dust bowl loops in the back). The 5.0TA was from Texas and had a "Texans" sticker on the back of the trailer. Drove by a couple of times and their black F150 was always there but didn't see any activity so we didn't stop. May have been the same one you saw.

Two Escapes in the general vicinity of Tamri/Cabana RV parks in Osoyoos.

One 19 pulled by a white Ridgeline and perhaps another at Cabana RV (only saw out of corner of eye so didn't get details).

Picked up "Sunny" our new 19 on April 14 and were camping at Nehalem State Park 5 days later when we met Steve and Debbie who had picked up their 21 on 4/13. Also spotted an older 19 in our Loop but never saw the Tow or met the owners.

Wait till you see how many you'll run into back here on the east coast.

In 2 years I've seen exactly 0, other then when shopping around.

I agree, yesterday was my first one, ever. Plus ironically, this couple viewed my unit prior to purchasing theirs 2 years ago. I was just glad that their issue was minimal and fixable.

The numbers are definitely growing in the East. Since we got ours home, another couple picked up just north of me in Mars Hill, NC. Also another ordered 10 minutes from me. The couple that bought Jim's 21 was trying to see mine first (in SC) Another forum member in Florida bought a used 19 in California after touring mine. Another couple in town was waiting for the 2017 release. And that's just the ones I've met- way to go Reace and Tammy!!!
