Gave away all the "tracks" when the players broke. The turntable lives!

I'm old enough that I had the 78 rpm records and a wind-up record player. Then I went up scale and got a 45 rpm player that connected to a radio so I could listen. Then along came all the later stuff but no ipod.

Yikes, old enough to have had a collection of LPs. Ouch. Anyone else remember "hifi" before "wifi"?
My first "stero" had tubes, now I'm recording my old albums into the computer and burning them to CD. My how times change... but not sitting around the campfire that is still pretty much the same. Well ok I need a chair now or I'll be too sore to stand up at the end of the night but mostly the same.

Just FYI there is a really good inexpensive software for album and cassete to CD conversion. It's called "Spin it Again". Does a great job of splitting the tracks and cleaning up the scratches and pops without trashing the music. With an internet connection it can even look up the tracks and label them by entering the artist and album name. Very easy to use.

I bought a turntable, plugged it in and was able to take all my parents old Christmas records and make CD's for us kids. Now I'm on to my "hippy junk" that my parents hated

Holy cow! I was afraid to look, but that is a great web site and it gives me hope I may meet some industrious, adventurous, lovely lady who's into trailers.

Looks like there's good stuff on there for any trailer owner, regardless of gender.

my first transistor radio weighed about 9 lbs and used a 9v lantern battery, course cars then had their hi-beam switch on the floor and you had to wait for the engine heat to defrost your washer bag before you could use your other foot to operate the pump.

Fun, isn't it? We're likely closer in age than you'd think.

I don't think we have met? You have probably just heard of my youthful exuberance.

All I know is that when I am at the Scamp Camp I am often the only person there who still works!
Not that there's anything wrong with that?


Nothing personal Melissa.

LOL, Oh I work I just dont draw a paycheck. And since I'm also homeschooling I'm dual employed as a homemaker and teacher. When I had Jury Duty Hubby had to do e'thing for 2 weeks. He said that was the hardest 2 weeks he could remember in a long time and was extremely thankful when it was over, lol.

Looking forward to cooler weather so we can enjoy Scamping! Havent budged since returning home in Jun. Definately camping over T'giving and off to TX for Christmas where we will driveway camp at the inlaws.

Great thread. Enjoying reading everyone's replies. I am 38 and have had my "Cloud" for two years now but I have wanted a fiberglass "little" camper since before I was even a teenager. My aunt an uncle had a 13' Scamp and I fell in love with it the moment I saw it and heard all the wonderful stories they would tell of their adventures. The problem was I could never afford one, I think as far as square footage goes fiberglass campers are pretty close to as expensive as they get. I got lucky finally a few years ago and found by pure luck and pure accident a coworker of mine who also owns and runs a farm just happened to hear me talking about my dream of owning a fiberglass camper and he was like "hey I have something like that out in the woods behind my barn" all I could do was say how much which he replied $400 if it will even still roll out of there as it had been in the woods for many many years. Well the rest is history as they say and I have been the proud owner of my "Escape Pod" for several years now. I took it on its first big trip last summer to the Black Hills and Theodore Roosevelt National Park and in a few weeks we are driving Route 66 (we being my 8 and 9 year old sons and I) for several weeks hoping to make it from Chicago to at least the west side of Arizona. Very excited and loving every moment of owning my very own Fiberglass Egg.
