That would have been my blushing bride of 46 years , the former Miss Niffenegger, now the brains and money of the modern combination herded by the indefatigable Iowa Dave and ably protected by the always vigilant Jihad Jake. Nice town. Lots of old tractors but no Oliver's that I saw.

Loved the old tractors! If I could tow my 19' with one, I would. Anyway, it was refreshing to see another Escape, hope you enjoyed your travels!

If you have time, Creede is definitely worth a visit. It's about 20 mi west of South Fork. Neat town, the old mining facilities built into the mountains are stunning.

Headed east, we spent five days at the Rocky Mtn.Rendezvous. Visited Mesa Verde and Black Canyon of the Gunnison. Train museum in Durango is very impressive and free. Park entries were free too with the geezer pass. Went into Mesa Verde, the entry ranger was a genius, parting comment " I hope you and your daughter have a great day in the park. Rita felt good all day, I was just confused.

Have been before, but it's been awhile, so we are thinking of making a day trip over there. Thanks for the pics!

Saw a blue 19 on Hwy 40 between Kremmling and Rabbit Ears pass. They were headed toward Steamboat Springs.

We were putting our kayaks in Big River (Mendicino, CA) when I noticed an Escape crossing over us on CA 1. It was about 10:30 this morning. I think it was a 21.

I saw an Escape 15, red trim, towed by a red Toyota Tacoma with Saskatchewan plates late this morning. It was in the Canadian Tire/Save On Foods parking lot in Canmore, Alberta

Saw a 5.0TA parked on the side of the road in Fort MacLeod Alberta today at 2:00 pm. Towed by a white Toyota. Nice looking rig.

Cheers

That was most likely us. We were returning to Salt Lake from a trip to the Beartooths and spent a couple of nights at Sinks Canyon State Park. Good campground (no hook-ups) and a very interesting geologic formation--the river disappears underground and emerges one quarter mile down canyon. Apparently, significantly more water comes out than goes in. We had a good trip although there were several forest fires in northern WY. While at Beartooth Lake, two trees were blown down--one hitting a camper and the other destroying the bumper of a truck. Two people were in the other end of the camper when the tree hit but fortunately were not hurt--although their camper suffered significant damage.
We've had our 17B for a year now and love it! The trailer (and retirement) have enabled us to spend 68 nights in it and we've towed it 6,718 miles. Love it!

What an interesting place, Sinks Canyon SP seems to be, may have to see it in person one day. We spent 3 days one night in Jackson, hitailed it out and went up thru Dubois and Thermopolis to Greybull on the way back to Sturgis. This place would have been a nicer place to camp compared to Jackson.

A few years back we camped north of Dubois at a USFS camp called Horse
creek. Very nice camp, good trout fishing,
The Bighorn Sheep museum in Dubois was very interesting to me. Take your bear spray in that country, they are bigger than you. I'd like to get back there in the early fall some time. They say you can hear them sheep cracking heads up in the hills when you walk down Main Street in Dubois!

Cool deal! We were camped for 2 nights at Sleeping Bear RV in Lander. Sinks Canyon WAS pretty cool, saw the sink and the rise as well as hiking to the Popo Agie falls, which were pretty impressive. The crazy huge monster trout in the rise pool were borderline scary....We're on the '14 5.0 TA shakedown tour after buying it in May, dragged her over Teton Pass this AM, TA was fine, truck and driver complained a bit! Hanging out in Victor ID for a couple of days of touring about. If anyone is ever in Lander WY, try the Cowfish restaurant and brewery, amazing food and better beer. Had the Rock Chock Rye and the IPA!

Josie and I spotted a 21' classic Escape going through Lee Vining ,CA. at 4:30 this afternoon. The Escape and tug both had orange striping. We were in a parking lot waiting to pullout and waving like crazy as it went by.

Josie and I passed a 21' classic dark pulled by a dark colored pickup or suv around 10:30 this morning. We were heading north out of Lee Vining as they were heading in.

Trailer: Escape 21', "Cardinals' Nest"

That was us in "Cardinal's Nest", just starting our trip to Minnesota and Wisconsin. We'd overnighted at the Flying J in Winnemucca the night before a lousy idea as it was way too close to the traffic noise from I-80. On our return, we tried the Walmart there, which was significantly quieter. It was far enough away from I-80 to avoid most of the I-80 noise, but there was traffic from RVs and big rigs most of the night. [We didn't check the Forum while traveling, as the WiFi at McDonalds, Burger King, and occasional campgrounds was so slow that we could barely do necessary tasks, like banking & checking for our next stop, and we had to up our cellular data allowance for our phones. ]

From subsequent posts, it sounds like we could have had a mini-rally in Winnemucca if we had stayed there on 7/10/16. Glad you found a good mechanic for your broken axle.

On our return, 8/11/16, we were stopped at a rest stop on I-80 in Nevada, when a 17' Scamp pulled up beside us. The driver leaped out yelling to Kathy, "I'm in love." Turned out he meant our 21' Escape, "Cardinal's Nest", not Kathy; so we were able to have a friendly conversation, and a quick tour. I think he was even more in love with Escape when he left.

The contact information cards from Escape have been going fast. In many campgrounds, someone has recognized that Escape trailers appear to be high quality, and want to learn more about them.

19 footer heading south on 405 in the Renton WA area around 11:15AM on Saturday, August 20th. Pulled by a black Toyota Tundra (or Tacoma?) TRD. I was slowing down in traffic so only got a quick glance at it and don't remember the color of the decals. Vague memory of some stuff (like a kayak or bikes or ??) in the bed of the truck.
