Thank you Floyd for the cute videos. I love the "Moving Right Along" one. True- getting there is half the fun!

Here in the Buffalo area were supposed to get socked come Sunday. Kinda makes me glad that Shrimp Scampi is in storage now. Made me sad to look at her in my backyard with all that snow atop her roof.

All winter I buy little toys for her (me). Just got new brake controller and charge wizard. Keeps my spirits high. My kids got me a new pots/pans set as I was using absolute junk previously. Can't wait to camp but even so, can't even wait to wax her with a beer on the driveway and my music on! Woot woot!

I found a very cool "Campground Journal" with lots of room for recording notes of each campground & site #'s....this will be very handy for us.

Did you?! I want one! Currently I make notes all over our Atlas and in our Colorado Camping book and I have folders and files of every big trip we've ever taken, but I LOVE stuff like this! Can I ask where you found it? Thank you!

Ginny uses one similar to this, actually we're on our second journal after 15 years. It's interesting how the campground entries have changed over the years. Since we've completed 6 loops of the USA, it is a handy reference to campgrounds from our past.

Getting ready for Sebring! The trip is already started if "planning is everything"...but since "planning is worthless" I'm sure to panic at the last minute and leave late!
Nothing like that first night on the road, it is comforting knowing it is too late to worry about what you didn't pack!
Getting the bikes ready,looking forward to the ride through the hammock.

Just this morning, SHE (who MUST be obeyed) hauled out our 'time table' for 2016 to look at our schedule with regards to camping and such, including two stints at The Fort (in Ft Langley) and Deming, and a stay at the KOA in Burlington!! Our 'card' is filling up FAST!!!!

Norm & Ginny...That is the exact journal I bought locally, It's a very nice book that I'm anxious to start filling when this whole "working" thing is over....I have loved reading your very informative posts!

Check out Norm & Ginny's post for the Campground Journal...such a great book! I'm glad to see others also like the "old fashioned" way of keeping memories...all right I admit I do not know how to do it differently! (Not without a tutorital from one of my kids...their eyes roll here!)

Even then, the clearance requirements of 20" from the front/sides means location and heat output could be very problematic. What about you?
Some one had a stove in their Scamp at the Bandon rally a few years back.... or I seem to recall it was a Scamp & at Bandon.... may have been at a different rally. They had it in the location of the tall clothing closet (which they had removed).

Minus 15˚F wind chill yesterday but we managed to have friends over for a party in the Scamp. The portable heater warmed us up to about 60˚ and the wine didn't hurt matters much.

We already have 14 days worth of rallies planned for the Spring–it can not come too soon since the wind chill is -28˚right now.

6" of fresh snow... while beautiful, makes camping feel a very long time away! Right now our dachshund has difficulty tunneling thru off his path...even he is dreaming of the next camping trip!
