Just returned from 4 days in Waterton National Park. While camped in the town campsite we saw 2 original Trilliums, a 13 ft Bigfoot, 1978 Boler, an Escape, a Scamp, and a Casita. Last month we sighted an Oxygen near the Banff Park gate.

Us, again! As we were approaching Mt. Desert Island and Acadia NP, Maine on Tuesday, we spied a Boler (I think), grey on the bottom, white on top, heading the same way ... are you camped in the park? Hope you are enjoying this beautiful spot as much as we are!

Here in the Bar Harbor KOA, we visited with Casita owners Jeri & Keith Howell from South Carolina - they don't play on the Internet, but were interested in checking out local rallies, etc. We gave 'em THE CARD!

As we explored other camping possibilities today we saw another Casita in Seawall Campground (NPS CG), but alas, they Egg People were out having fun (as we were) so we did not get to meet them.

We hit the road tomorrow - night temps are getting too chilly so we'll be heading south. Take care, all - L 'n D

when - sometime in August
where - in a storage facility in Red Deer, Alberta
what - a Bonair Oxygen... my first in-person Oxygen sighting!

Okay, it wasn't camping, or on the road, but it really was a pristine-looking Oxygen. Does that count as a "sighting"?

I would post a photo, but now I can't find it on my computer... must be on the other one!

We were at lunch at another town, and spotted a 17' '77 Boler driving by on the Highway.

"Hey, that's just like ours!"

Uh-oh!

Drove back home in the aft to see our harvest-gold and orange-striped beast still in the driveway, ready to go.
Good thing most thieves don't have a heavy-duty hitch, don't know how to attach the sway bars, and et cetera.

Phew!

Returning home from a North Umpqua river camping trip we saw a Scamp pulled by a white Toyota? traveling south on I-5 between Oakland and Roseburg followed shortly later by a Casita also pulled by a light colored vehicle. Was it you?

Today, at about 1:30 in the afternoon, in my home town of Danbury, NH, a 16' Scamp being pulled by a Subaru wagon. You were coming East on Rt. 4 and I think you turned onto Rt. 104.

First 'glass I've seen in months, other than my own!

This last weekend 15-16th we headed to Chelan, Washington and past a rig pulling a 16ft. egg. Maybe a casita not sure, had blue design. Look like ivory color rig. Past it again going back home. Waved both times and they waved back. They must have had a short weekend like we did. Oh, but it was fun.

Today, at about 3:45, I saw what I think was a 16' Casita with RED stripes and emblems, being pulled East on Rt. 104 in Alexandria, NH. I know it was a Casita: it said so on the side in the normal place, but I've never seen one with red accents. I was paying too much attention to the egg and didn't catch the state on the plate or what the tug was, even.

1980-ish Bigfoot 17G pulling North down mainstreet, Blackfalds, Alberta today about 3PM.

I had to double take and make sure it wasn't mine! This one had the stripe package that must have been red at one time. Was so surprised to see it, I didn't even see what or who was tugging.

Oct. 1 at noon we spotted a Casita camped at Harris Beach, Oregon and also a gentleman with an older Bigfoot at the entrance station there. A Scamp was headed south through Gold Beach about 1 pm, and another Scamp passed us (headed north) just south of Bandon while we were at the weigh station. Their TV was a black pickup with WA plates and they may have had an Oregon Gathering decal on the back of their trailer. Hello to all of you! We hope you managed to stay dry during the big storm that passed through Sept. 30th!

The Scamp with the black tow vehicle was me - headed back to Clarkston after a 2-week visit with the grandkids in Calif. I managed to log about 2200 miles with no incidents. It sure was nice to have my own B&B with me. The Sept. 30th storm found me tucked in warm and dry at my mother's house in Arcata, CA!!

I don't know if this was a sighting or not.
I didn't actually see the Trailer.
In a driveway in the Point Loma neighborhood of San Diego was the silhouette of a Casita under a custom fitted protective cover. I passed it on my way to the Southwestern Yacht Club making a scale delivery.

Greetings from Tennessee, everyone! Well, way back in Lancaster, PA as we were leaving town, we spotted a Burro or U-Haul in a parking lot. D thought it was hooked to a teal-colored SUV, and I thought I saw a 'For Sale' sign in the front window. Traffic was ugly, so we did not try to got back to investigate.

This may count as a 'cosmic' sighting ... When we checked into Otter Creek CG on the Blue Ridge Pkway, the Ranger saw which site we chosen and said "A little Scamp just like yours checked out of that site this morning!" Welcome to the Twilight Zone ??? Was that a member of our fabulous Forum?

Hope everyone is enjoying the transition to Fall , despite the end of the camping season in some areas. Take care, L 'n D
