So, who reads this thread?

When you take your trailer out on the road, do you check this thread to see if anyone spotted you on the road and posted about it here? I've always wondered about that as it seems like very few sightings have a follow up post from the owner saying "that was me". Some do, but not that many, percentage-wise, it seems.

I've never understood the point of posting sightings. I see my trailer in my driveway every morning, but I don't post.

I read this thread not because I expect someone to see Ten Forward or that I may see others, but to read where other Escape trailers are going around the country.

My goal is to never be sighted. So far in 11+ years and 5 molded FG trailers no one has ever spotted me.

I'm new, but I find it exciting to see and be seen by other Escape owners. Two parties, total strangers, usually headed in different directions, but with a common thread.... .

The coolest thing? Our first trip with the Casita, to Alaska, we were traveling west toward White Horse. Spotted another Casita coming east. He pulled over as soon as he saw me and I stopped and we had a nice 15 minute visit. Two lane road and I think maybe three vehicles went by in that time. Too bad it was before Gina started this thread over on the FGRV Forum.

Wife just got home and announced a sighting. The Trillium that was in the driveway of a house two blocks from ours, has been replaced with an Escape. Not-so-big Al and his 5.0 live across the street.
There. I posted a sighting.

We kept spotting a 19 with red decals, first at our house, then at our local park last Thursday, then back at our house, then it followed us to St. Malo and parked beside us until Sunday. Oh, that was Iowa Dave and Rita came up for the the MB rally

Sighted today, at about 12:15, waiting to board the Port Townsend side of the Keystone-Port Townsend Ferry (Washington), an Escape 19.

Escape 19 spotted

We were at Sleeping Giant Provincial Park for the day on Sunday Sept 4th and saw an Escape, I think a 19 parked in an electrical spot. No truck or car beside it so could not see a license plate to identify where it was from. To the best of my knowledge we are the only Escape owners in Thunder Bay. Maybe an Escapee from eastern Ontario, or Winnipeg MB or one of our southern friends from the St Paul/ Minneapolis area!

We were driving from Jasper to Vancouver on Aug 27 and saw 4 Escapes on the way. That was the most we have ever seen on the road in one day (not counting trips to Escape Rally in Osoyoos - what else would you see there?). The first one was a 5.0 as we were driving out of the Whistlers campground in Jasper and the last one, a 17' I think, passed us on the freeway just before we got to Chilliwack.
