We’re “Scampin” 1.12.14

Until I decide whether to start a blog dedicated to the Scamp and camping…I’ll post our travels here.

Loaded up and ready to go. This will be our first major trip full of supplies and with the generator on the back. Jim raised the spare tire and welded a rack to hold it. It will give us power when we are not at a campground. The Yamaha 2000 will also run the roof air. Big surprise to us…but it is only a 6700 btu unit. Perfect for this little camper.

Our plans are 3 nights at the campground in Silver Springs..(Mill Dam Lake Resort) to visit Mike and Karen who are down from NY.

Then 3 nights at the Tin Can Tourist rally in Micanopy, FL. No electric hook ups there so generator might come in handy.


We decided to head to Carl’s. (Jim’s brother). It will break up the trip and give us a chance to check out everything.

A stop at the local Walmart for a few supplies….a stop to top off the gas tank and we are on our way.

The Scamp towed beautifully….no sway even out on the highway at 60+ mph. Jim is happy with the new rear end gears he installed in the Hudson.

We’ve spent a lot of time in small places (over the road truckers, small boats etc) so we’ve learned how to work around another person. You take turns.
