Lucy has escaped

Don't pay the ransom, I've escaped!!!

Once again, Lucy has set out on one of her epic cross country adventures. She has been preparing for her trip at a secret location in the North Georgia Mountains. She has been hiding in plain sight amongst a large group of lookalike trailers at the Top of Georgia Airstream Park.

Tomorrow morning Lucy will embark on her journey across these United States in pursuit of the the ever-elusive Moose. Before heading into Moose Country, we will make a brief stop in Oklahoma. Then it's on to Denver for some serious truck camper shopping. After that's done, we will head on up into the Bighorns of Wyoming for encounters with the Alces alces (Mooses). If the weather has not broken yet, we will head out into Utah for some red rock adventures.

Come join us on yet another great Airstream Adventure. We will be reporting on our progress and encounters. Stay tuned for further updates.

Brian

Have a great trip.

Pat and Al, your friends from the last moose hunt at Baxter.

If you are shopping in the Denver area, you may want to look at Outfitter truck campers—up in the Longmont or Loveland area along I-25 (I always get those two cities confused). If so, reconsider. We bought one in 2002 and it was a disaster—leaks galore, things didn't work and more things didn't work, very, very late delivery, terrible job installing air bags (one blew out because it was installed incorrectly). We brought it back. I think they are still in business and it's 9 years later and that may mean they solved their problems, but I would be careful.

Another local brand is Haulmark (or a name similar) that had a good reputation 10 years ago, but I don't know since then. There are or used to be other local brands in the Denver area, but some aren't so good, so check it very carefully.

There are mooses on Grand Mesa, but the snow is still deep, but if I see any (it's only 40-50 miles away out my window) I'll let you know. Have a good trip.

Gene

Thanks, Gene. We have an appointment at Outfitter in Longmont next Tuesday morning. We looked at Hallmark on line. They only have east/west sleeping arrangement which is a deal breaker. The other pop-up TC in the Denver area is Coyote, and they have a questionable rep. Right now it is kind of between the the Outfitter and the Northstar which we have already seen in person. They are made in Iowa.

Also, thanks for the Moose info.

Brian

Thanks for the Moose info. We will give that route a try.

We're not sure yet. It depends on the weather and when we will be able to get up into the high country.
