California Sun

by Bruce Watts

We are finally in California… the “Eureka” state. We are lov’in it!

It’s been a long time coming and a huge haul to get here. However it’s absolutely worth it… so far!

The state itself is an economic powerhouse and her eco-systems are some of the most diverse in the world. In the first few days, we have experienced ocean surf, mountains, rain forests, deserts, giant old growth red wood trees… and the best hot tamales I have ever enjoyed.

The Escape Pod is Conceived

by Bruce Watts

Exciting times… we have a new baby on the way.

About a 9 months ago we never expected this. Tracy and I were passively searching for our next new and “best” camp trailer ever, when we stumbled upon Escape Trailers of Chilliwack British Columbia. These sweet fibreglass shelled puppies were relatively small, yet seemed to have all we wanted and more importantly … needed. We had already crossed the continent twice before in 2 other trailers, so by now we were experienced RV’ers. Our mobile camping stylings were stabilizing…. we knew what we wanted.
