This morning I ALMOST saw myself going out to our Trillium to do a mild winterization of it but the weather has not been co-operating for the last 3 weeks up here in the Pacific North Wet, so I hi-tailed it and ran back inside the security oy warm DRY shop to do a l'il clean up. Its not expected to freeze up here any time soon, so I can maybe aford to wait another week or ten days before I haul out the auntie freeze and git'r done.

I'm just posting this little bit of nonsense in an effort to take my mind of the sillieness that has happened to our group here

Tuesday, November 15 we saw a Casita being pulled by, I think it was brown van, driving through Gila Bend, Arizonia???

Wednesday, November 16, we saw an old fiberglass trailer--don-t know what it was, and could not catch up in Nuevo Casas Grandes, Mexico. I will pot a quickly taken picture when we return.

P. S. Finally made Batopilas, Mexico---what a ride down to the bottom of the canyon. Will post more later.

Do not have the time to check everything out right now as I am in an Internet cafe in Creel, but the site sure looks back to normal.

Since we got our Boler a year ago, I have only seen one other fiberglass trailer on the road while we were towing - I only saw it from behind, but as I recall (this was months ago) it was a 13-foot Boler or Trillium, headed east away from Edmonton (Alberta) on the Yellowhead Highway (16). I was going faster than I wanted to drag our B1700, so it eventually vanished in the distance. I'm not sure if I've seen any others during that year even while we were not towing our own.

I wonder how may eggs are just parked, and whether out-of-use units are any more or less common in molded fiberglass than with conventional trailers.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Brian,
There are probably more eggs put out to pasture than we will ever know. I spotted this little Surf Side hiding in the trees on the road to Chilkat State park, Haines, Alaska.

I thought it might be you! Did you give up on the Baja idea? But now that you are headed for Texas, you can drop down on to the mainland---maybe you will see Denis and Renee again.

Diane,
Haven't "given up" on Baja so much, but I just go tired of that neck of Arizona. Denis and Renee might be in Mission TX again. I am heading for the same RV park, cheap, funky, clean enough, and the Xmas display in Hidalgo, plus last year's Mexican Men's choir was awesome, like to see it again. After that...
Sightings: 2 Casitas westbound on !-10 (one of 'em you?), two Casitas at Ft Davis state park, two more Casitas at Seminole Canyon state park. One Casita a full time couple with poodle, way to go. And an (older decal) Casita. Most Casitas I've seen all summer. Love your pix Batopilas -scary road
