Hey all... We're back from our first 3 nights of camping in our Scamp
. I can't decide whether I should think of it as the first camping trip of the year or the last! We stayed in Christine's parent's yard near Flathead Lake; it's more like a campground than a lot of campgrounds... beautiful pine trees, pitch black nights with blazing stars, and coyotes howling in the distance. The house was packed with visiting family and we needed a place to stay, so Egg Power to the rescue!
We picked up a small electric heater at Target, hoping it would be enough to keep us from freezing and it did great... actually had to turn it down at one point because it was just too darn hot! We ended up with it running about one minute out of every 10 minutes. Considering that it was about 25 outside, not too bad. Our tent camper would not have faired as well, to put it mildly...
The bed is... ahem... small. We're king size bed users in our house, and have always occupied both ends of the tent camper, so the Scamp
bed will take some getting used to. We put a 1.5" memory foam topper on it, but I'm thinking the key will be to put at least 4" on to make it really cozy....compensate for lack of width with brute snugglyliciousness!
It was fun to take family members on the tour... my brother-in-law is already talking about getting one!
