2 bigfoots and 1 old burro (very small) sighted on I-5 traveling south Friday evening at Wilsonville Oregon. A friend saw them and phoned me immediately, asking, "Eric, are you missing a rally?"

Anyone have information about them?

Trailer: Scamp 16 ft Side Bath

Last week, during our stay on the Nachez Trace Parkway CG at Meriwether Lewis Monument, we spied a Burro/U-haul parked at an RV Park ... with an advertising banner of some sort wrapped around it. The wind had 'rearranged' the banner so you couldn't read it, but the FG trailer looked to be in good shape - wonder if anyone ever camps in it?

In the neighborhood of friends we are visiting near Mtn Home, AR, we see a 2-tone grey/silver Boler and a Casita ... neither one looks like it has been taken out for any adventures lately. Too bad their owners are missing out on Egg-ventures!

Take care, L 'n D

OK. What happens when I am the one that was sighted?

The Red Subaru Forrester who honked and waved Emailed me later to own up to it.

But who was that in the HUGE black Mercedes who tooted and waved as he passed me on the southbound I-5 bypass lanes at the I-5/I-805 merge?

Last week I spotted my first Escape trailer on the move! It was just before noon headed north on 101 in Coos Bay,OR, pulled by a white Honda mini van type TV.

And around noon on Oct 21 we spotted an eerie near-convergence of Scamps in Half Moon Bay, CA. We had driven hundreds of miles and our only FBG sighting was a single Bigfoot... Then while walking near an intersection on Hwy 1 we saw a 5th wheel headed east, a 16 footer headed south, and another 16 footer headed north, all within one minute!

Today in ABQ I saw what I think was a Compact Jr. Trailer was on Academy turning into the shopping center across the street from Garduno's..I think a Whole Foods/Radio Shack/McD's in that center. Anyway, it was cool - but unfortunately I didn't have time to follow them and say hi. Was a bit before 9am.

A Casita on Franklin Boulevard headed toward Springfield or up the McKenzie river today late afternoon. Was it you?

I sighted Two Scamps today while on a round trip from San Diego to Irvine for work!

#1) While driving north on Interstate 5, just before the Canon Road exit, I saw a 16' Scamp (Side Bath) being towed West on Canon Road by a Light Green (Chartreuse?) Jeep Grand Cherokee. You were heading away from Legoland, and I lost sight of you when you went under the freeway overpass. It was about 9:40 AM.

#2) On my return trip, I had just gotten on Interstate 5 South at Bake Parkway, and at about Capistrano passed a 13' Scamp being towed by a RED Dodge Durango. I was driving the white Ford Van with San Diego Scale signs that tooted as I passed. This was about 1:25 PM. Was it you?

Heading south on Friday we saw a white Casita 17 with white TV in the rest area about 608 mp on I-5. They looked to be still sleeping at 7:30am so didn't honk. Last night we were passed by another Casita 17 heading north. We stopped at the casino near Corning for the evening and they went on. Nice quiet night in their free parking. If you park towards to field on the side, even the trucks turn off their fridge units and it is really quiet. I just hope we don't see too much white stuff as we head over the pass towards home on the end of our last trip of 2007.

While wandering today, and checking out other campgrounds near the one I am at, I happened upon one of our own, The Rudds from San Diego, and their 17' Casita in the Laguna Campground.

I stopped and was pleasantly surprised to find out I had actually met them before at the Oregon gathering in 06. I had to embarrassingly tell them I was the one with the tent in B loop (You guys probably don't remember, but I visited EVERY site there that year)

We had a nice chat and I sure wish I had known about this campground, I may have just gone there.

While we were chatting, a sparkly brand new 21 foot Bigfoot cruised through, but I don't think they stayed.

On my way home from the desert today, with my Fiber Stream in tow, I was passed by 2 fiberglass trailers, amongst all the big toy haulers.

First one was a 16' Scamp, a rental owned by the Navy/Marine Corps MWR (Morale/Welfare/Recreation) department.
It was being pulled by a Dodge Dakota Pickup with a dirt bike in the bed. The driver waved back at me as he passed.

The second one was another Fiber Stream being pulled by a GMC Sierra Pickup with a quad runner in the bed.

I ran into a 16 foot Scamp with a #4 on the back of it at the gas station in Ocotillo. We were both waiting.. waiting...waiting.. and gave up, there were so many toy haulers in line filling their tugs and all their toys. (I had enough gas to get to El Centro, where I only waited 5 mins LOL!)

It was the same one we all saw going by the ranch just as we were prepping to leave.

... And the same one who passed me.

Saw something I couldn't quite figure out on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving...on Hwy 41/46 east of Paso Robles, a red truck pulling a flat red (not shiny red) 16' or 17' fiberglass trailer. It looked like it had a window in the front covered by a rock guard or whatever you call them, but from the back it looked like a Casita. It also had an A/C on top that looked like mine--but red! I didn't get a good look because it passed me going the other way. What was it?
