Meet The Mis-Adventure

After much thought, research and conversation, the Handyman and I sold our 2003 Scamp 16 (side dinette) to the first person who came and looked at it and bought CPAHarley's Blackjack (a very gently used 2014 Escape 21) almost as soon as he put it up for sale. An unexpected serendipity allowing us to sidestep the Escape Lottery for a brand new rig.

So, here we are at Modoc Campground on Lake Strom Thurmond in mid-state SC on her maiden voyage as the newly renamed Mis-Adventure. This is a shake down cruise to orient us with all her bells and whistles in anticipation of our own Westward Madventure Part Deaux come mid-May sighting for the Escape Rally in Osoyoos, BC at the end of May.

While there may be further mods down the road, thus far we've only added shelves to the wardrobe and a riser on the step due to my vertically challenged self. In the wings is the addition of struts to hold the hatch opening in the upward position on the storage hatch under the bed. Beyond that we will see what pops up as we make her our own.

Thank you, Jim, for selling us your rig and working things out due to family and weather related issues. We love her already and look forward to many miles under her wheels with our 4Runner piloting her.

Apparently they are too big to load more than one at a time. Sorry.

I hope the chosen name never proves to be prophetic. May all your trips be good adventures!

Gave up on the name Miss Adventure already?

Hope you have many happy years with your new and roomier camper. It will be a few more years before we catch up with as many mods as Craig did to your Scamp (although I did add Allure plank flooring this weekend).

Tell Craig thanks for the suggestion of getting the oscillating tool!

Hope to see you guys on the road sometime soon. We'll have to exchange itineraries to see if we cross paths as you head to BC while we head to AK.

So what does CPA Harley have now? Did he/is he towing an Escape 5th wheel now?

He is currently rigless. I believe Craig said Jim was ordering a 19 instead of the 5er.

Radar, we decided Mis-Adventure was more suitable to our Madventuring cruises.

I think you'll love that flooring....plenty of cush to the step. And, himself said he was glad the tool worked out for you.

This far our itinerary is leaving around May 10 for Osoyoos at the end of May for the rally. After that we're still in the thinking about it stage. But, we will definitely keep you in our loop so that we might ketchup somewhere along the road.

Mike we are often like the Griswold's on our various madventures so the name is more appropriate than you think. (Snicker)
