I couldn't stand it any longer so last Friday I loaded up and went to one of my favorite spots.
I had to go the back way through the deseert and then up into the tall timber. I got the Scamp
all set up and sat down to relax and have a cup of coffee.Thats when I noticed that some how the wheel bearing dust cap was missing on my Scamp
. 47 miles back to my house for the stuff to repack a wheel bearing and stop by NApA for another dust cap and I was back in business.
I wore myself out on Saturday by putting about 50 miles on my ATV. Sunday I got up, fixed a big breakfast and set out exploring an area that I had never been in. I managed to bury my machine in the snow to the point that I had to winch it out. I saw a scruffy looking brown colored bear, it disappeared before I could get my camera out, and even discovered a mine and old cabin that is not on the Forest Service map.
All in all it was a great first camping trip of the year.
