big trips....

Our first big trip this year will be to the Casita factory next week to pick up the 17'.:)
The only other "big" trip will be a week and a half to Yosemite in May. Not quite as ambitious as our 2 week trip up the west coast last April in the 13', but will be exciting, since I've never seen Yosemite.:r

Alaska

I am going from Ann Arbor, Michigan to Fairbanks Alaska and back. Actually i bought the Casita for this specific trip. Although after going on a few test outings it has really grown on me. I may just keep it for a while....

Hello, bdavid!

Welcome!

I see you're from Ann Arbor!

Some of my best friends live in Ann Arbor... well, nearby anyway (South Lyon).

Good luck on your trek to Alaska. Of course, we expect a full report, including photos... while in transit, if at all possible! (It's gonna be a long, hot summer for some of us! Although that's almost hard to imagine right now!)

Again, welcome to the website!

:ola

My wife, Teddy & I are also driving to Alaska this summer pulling our Scamp. :steer We plan on leaving around the end of May and spending two to three months. Perhaps we'll see you there. Just look for a Scamp 5th Wheel with Appleton, WI lettered on the back. Incidently we are originally from Traverse City. :)

Where

Hi all....Hoping to catch two Glass trailer meets....First in Langley,B.C. in May and the other On Vancouver Island. Too bad the get togethers aren`t every weekend, then could catch four in a month. This way it`s one per month....After that may head down the Highway ,(#1, I think ), along the coast south to San Francisco and then thru Utah back to Winnipeg or who knows where.....Benny

route 66 - ?

:wave
Our plan was/is to leave Ont. June 1 visit family in Kalamazoo and then head for Chicago and follow route 66 to Ca. to be at the L.A.Roadsters Club Father's Day Show in Pamona.Leaving there on the 15th to take the coastal highway to San Fransico,just missing both egg get-togethers. in Mt. Shasta and Nev., up to Vancouver B.C. then head east to Banff and drop south at Winnipeg and visit a friend who just moved to Warroad minn. and home through U.P. Mich down to Port Huron and Sarnia Ont.
A few problems - Norm has to be back at work on the 2nd of July, another thread told us how hard a run that would be.
- the tow vehicle a 32 ford roadster is still under construction.Currently the body is at the paint shop and Norm is working on the electrical and the mechanical. It's a long haul for a test-drive.
- the political landscape - for a time the concern was how far we'd be from home and the kids if war came to North America. Now it's more the worrisome stories we hear about problems that vehicles with Canadian liscence plates have encountered in the south since our gov't's decision not to go to war. We are much better equipped and trained to go in later as peace-keepers- as we stayed for years in Cyprus and Bosnia.Unfortunately that message didn't come across.
Plan B may be to take shorter runs, to street-rods shows in Ont. NY. state and Mich to work out the bugs and go next year on route66. Norm has been working on this car for 4 yeards to do this run.
Hope to see you on the road - in the yellow roaster pulling the oxygen. Wave-it'll have to be us!
Jean

Our first trip

As most of you know by now, our first big trip will be from the Denver area to Mesa, AZ to pick up our , new to us, 17 ft FD Casita. We are so excited, it feels like we are going on an Alaskan trip. We plan to pick it up, visit my elderly Aunt in Scottsdale for a couple days, and then take a few days heading home to shake down the trailer and have some private time.. We really have high hopes that this is the set up for us.

We are the kind of people who work too hard and too much at home and our jobs and seem to never take enough time for ourselves. We have promised each other that with the Casita, we are going to start taking tons of time for ourselves. You know, in a 100 years, all that yard work and painting and etc and etc won't matter at all. Good memories of great trips and times together are PRICELESS! Sorry, didn't mean to wax poetic.

I just wish I could decide whether or not to change tow vehicles. If I keep the Merc Villager, I am going to have to spend about $750 on hitch upgrade and brake controllers, etc. If I change Tows, it going to cost me a lot more but i'll have more fun pulling the TT. I think I'm talking myself into changing. The big decision is really whether to buy a Toyota 4runner or a Chevy Trail Blazer.

I sure love this forum.

Keith
