Whenever people talk about driving/camping in Mexico, I often think of Michael & Debra: http://www.escapeforum.org/forums/f1...19-a-3895.html

Hi Jim, I understand. I may be biased, about 15 years ago while vacationing in Puerto Vallarta our hotel room was vandalized basically every thing of value was taken. We felt safe and where having a great time up tell then. I wish you a safe and happy travels.

You gotta know that if I end up doing a trip like that, and it is successful, you will hear back. If not that successful, please donate to your favourite charity in lieu of flowers.

The Mexican prisons have quite a few openings for a good handyman, Jim....

I've meet one professional caravan leader and instantly knew I could / would go with one of his groups. For the first time anyways.

Reminds me of this unit I saw about five years ago. These folks were in the process of outfitting their rig to take down into South America...

My guess based on the tail lights, exterior hatches, rear of the body that bumps up slightly and the window configuration that this is an older Casita 16 (late 90's-early 2000's).

Yep. We were there! Then camping next to an identical twin in Tucson and then to the Florida Keys. Picked up trailer September 16 and now have 14,000 miles on it. Wheels are presently cooling off in Idaho. Home again.

Met a really nice couple from Portland who had an Escape 19 at Indian Cove campground, Joshua Tree, a few days ago.

Had a brief chat.... I don't remember their names. I actually don't think we exchanged names.

Only Escape we saw in the (very beautiful) Joshua Tree area.

Meet "Escape-arooski" on the John Day Fossil highway. Totally forgot their names, but maybe they will stop lurking here and introduce themselves. Nice couple (that's them in the background).


Also waved at Jan and Paul "Le Bon Oeuf" in the Maryhill State Park.

Most likely that was me! I was just told about this post at the Spring NOG. I have a "naked" 21, pulled by a blue crew max Tundra. I don't remember seeing another Escape next to me though. I might have been napping, if it was me.

Coming home from Spring NOG saw "Ollie's Trolley" and a Casita right behind 'em. I kind of flew past them as my truck was so excited to get on a straight road without curves and some speed to it (I was in Coos Bay previous to the rally, so yeah, tired of twisty roads). This was at I5 just after you leave the Corvallis area.

I was also on my way to a rest stop north of Albany as I was hungry, hungry, hungry. I believe I sat next to Ollie's parents at the potluck Saturday night as I recognized the driver.

Passed a 5.0TA farther north with gold decals. Around about the area where Mt St Helens explosion's mud river took out the bridge over I5. White truck maybe, but don't quote me on that.

Saw a 19 with red graphics heading south on I5, but forget where now.

We've Been Spotted

Three times!

Old Fulicas friends in Lo De Marcos, Mexico, saw us first. Then Steve Clark saw us just north of the Grape Vine on the I5. And finally BC Nomad got us at the 7 Feathers.

Crystal and I had a wonderful 4 months travelling mainland Mexico this year. We went as far as Zihuatanejo, with many other amazing spots visited. We found the mainland way better than Baja. Better roads, friendlier people and the cost of living was way cheaper. We're already booked in for 4 months this coming winter!

We'll be steaming down the I5 in early October so keep an eye out for us!

James and Crystal
