This year, we decided to attend the annual Escape Trailer Owners Appreciation Rally which is held about Memorial Day in NK'MIP (that's ink-a-meep) campground in Osoyoos, BC, which is a great place to visit. I failed to take many photos here, but I have included what I took. There were about 150 trailers at the rally. We saw some of Osoyoos as well as enjoying meeting many other Escape Trailer owners. We met several from the Bay Area, which was fun. We were assigned site 77, which was right on the waterfront. The photo is the view out of our back window of the trailer. The first night
We started today on our trip to the Escape Customer Appreciation Rally in Osooyos, BC, just "down the street" from the Escape Trailer factory in Chilliwack, BC. Every year about this time, they host a rally for Escape trailer owners. We thought we should go to one, so we are on our way. Today, we traveled 384 miles to Chiloquin, OR, and are staying overnight in Waterwheel RV Park. It is a delightful place on the banks of the Williamston River. Our neighbor told us there is good fly fishing here. We are enjoying the peace and quiet after a long day of driving. Tomorrow, we are off to
We decided to go to Oregon to see the total solar eclipse on August 21, 2017. We made state park campground reservations 9 months before the day. The sites went on sale at 12:01 am and by 1 am, all sites were booked.
After spending a few days at the north side of the park, we moved around to camp at Kalaloch campground, a really nice campground on the bluff above the Pacific Ocean near the southwest corner of the park. We didn't know what to expect as it was a national park campground, which are always nice, but we had been camping in parks with hookups.
In July, 2017, we took a trip to Washington's Olympic National Park and surrounding lands. We first spent a few days visiting some of our many relatives and friends who live in the Seattle area. How did so many end up there?
In July, we took a trip to the Washington Olympic Peninsula. At the start of the trip, we went to Astoria, OR, and stayed at Fort Stevens State Park. We recommend all Oregon state parks as we have yet to be disappointed by them. They have all been great.
We visited Lewis and Clark National Historic Site, where the Lewis and Clark expedition stayed for the winter on their trip to explore the Louisiana Purchase. We learned a lot about Lewis and Clark and their journey. If you like historical places, you will like this park.
While were so close to Monterey on our California coast trip, we decided to take a day and go to Monterey to see the fabulous Monterey Bay Aquarium. We have been to many aquariums (aquaria?) but none is better than this one.
From Morro Bay, we went to Fruitdale, and stayed at a KOA which positioned us to go easily to Monterey, Pinnacles, and home. The KOA was like a lot of RV Parks, mostly pads for trailers with little greenery or separation from your neighbors. This park was almost all paved with what seemed like a lot of permanent or at least long term campers. It seems that there are more and more long term campers in RV Parks.
