Smile My Son Beat Me Camp in Alaska No Less! Warning Not Fiberglass

Yep, he beat me camping this year. He got his Truck Camper onto his pickup & went for a one night campout.....no campfire. They went out by Summit Lake to do some snowmachine riding.

In fact, they had spend on night a month ago, just in a camper shell on his pickup, but this time he was able to get the TC out of storage & onto the pickup. It was a cold night for them in the shell. But the TC's furnace worked great, he had to turn it down during the night....to hot. Needless to say, they did not have un-winterized. The Forecast was for a low of -15 degrees that morning. He believes he may have used a half a tank of propane. 10 gal. tank.

Northern Lights Friday night on the way.


The 'Campground' near Summit Lake....site of the Arctic Man. Ooophs, not campground but cabins near the Lake. Found out after talking to my son.


His Lance TC on 'Big Blue' at the campsite.


The Snowmachines.


The Riders.


Summit Lake Area Playgrouund.




They had a good time.

I warned you, Not Fiberglass, not even a Trailer. Though it might be interesting anyway.

We're starting to plan for Alaska with the Scamp 13 - up on the ferry, then drive back. Tentatively Fall of 2013. But there is so much to do, and so little time.

Never taken the Scamp to Alaska, but we did get to do a little camping there in Summer of 2011. Perhaps you can find something in the link to help with your plans.

It's a neat place to see.
