Thanks D Davis? I am really enjoying myself. I'll be sad when its done. I'm grateful to have a wife and daughter who puts up with my goofballery.
GrregP. Cool, I'll be camping at Kidsville. Its a great place to camp and offers a tad bit security around the kids. Its nice to camp around other parents so if you forget something child related, somebody will likely be able to help you out. A nice couple loaned us sheets to mitigate the dust on our beds. The Black Rock Scout headquarters will be in Kidsville and no matter where you camp, you can always come to visit or participate in one of our activities. Last year I took an old tent trailer that got knocked around in the wind (gave it to a cute 20 something couple for their next burn) I'm betting the Scamp
will be a lot nicer. This year, I won't be there the whole week but I am organizing a staff of scout leaders to run the show most of the week. My ten year old daughter and I will get there late Thursday night. Props to my wife who admits that the dust is not for her. Its our big Dad and Daughter trip each year. Last year was her first and now I can't imagine going without her.
Check out the solar kit from Harbor Freight. Its super easy and you can at least bring it and set it on the ground at your camp. Mine will be mounted with two car scissor jacks on each side to adjust it when parked.
Mike Magee, Don't think I haven't tossed and turned at night with nightmares of my roof in somebody's front seat. I'm holding it down with 16 bolts connected to the shell, 16 hurricane connectors to solidify the framing, and four tie down cables from the front and rear rafters to the metal frame base. If the roof goes, the whole trailer goes. Maybe I should throw in a race care fin in the back. I'm all for over-engineering.
