Thanks all for your kind comments.
Steve, Our trip certainly was an adventure. But, I don't think I have the fortitude/foolhardiness to undertake such a journey today. Back then, like so many "kids" I thought I was invincible. Over the decades life has convinced me otherwise. Newly married Jill thought I was pretty smart for a few years and joined more than one of my crazy ideas. Ask her about our year earlier 6 week Winter tenting honeymoon thru Western national parks when bears kept tripping over our tent's guy ropes. We both loved that, but she is wiser now and likes a furnace
for Winter excursions? From now on we will confine out travels to 49 states and a few Canadian provinces and perhaps even a trip to Europe if I win the lottery. On the other hand, since I don't buy tickets and consider lotteries a tax on folks bad at math, Europe may be out of reach.
Or - Has anyone out there modded their Scamp
with floats? Hawaii and Europe would be fun to see via Scamp
. Oh wait, I am not 23 anymore and for sure Jill would stay home making sure the life insurance was paid up. ;-)
Happy camping to all, john
PS. The attached picture shows how we rough it these days at Jumbo Rocks campground in Joshua Tree National Park.
