We leave Monday FEB 5th. For Florida then north and west toward home doing a 3 month trip. We are starting out driving to Portland and then will take the coast down to S CAL then turn East and camp along the way.
I would like to thank everyone with all of your advice it was a great help buying the trailer and doing some work on it.

OK what things helped:
1) Books taking lonely planet USA, Wrights books east and west, Woodalls tent camping (new 2007 out $10.95 with shipping) and Colemans camping guide.
2) I went with Verizon cell phone.
3) Shorten my electrical cord for more storage under bed and use an extension cord.
4) Went with prodigy brake controler and got all the wiring done.
5) tomarrow I take the trailer and TV to get weighted. Hope we did a good job loading.
6) Hid all the sharp knives (see if we still like each other after 3 months in SCAMP)

To all who sent us info we will try to reach as many places of interest as possible ( hope to see DonInChatt).

So if you see a green Toyota T-100 towing a 16 foot SCAMP with bikes on the back wave.
We will try to keep all 6 wheels on the road and great outlook every day.

Have a great, great time...make loads of memories. Please check in when possible to update us on your travels (I'll live vicariously!!!)...libraries are a good place if you're not taking a computer.

And remember, "Shiny side up, Greasy side down.)

Be safe

Y'all come! We had snow today, though now melted, so we have some cold weather.

Hey, have fun. We are planning to leave our Leesburg, VA home on Feb 16 to head south. Eventually to Key West and then back north through the Florida Panhandle. We've been planning this trip since we ordered or 25' Bigfoot back in March of 2006. We are ready to start now--its snowing!

Have a good trip and be safe! Coming through Nebraska? We don't have a lot of snow but it is frigid cold. You could keep a photo journal of your trip and send it on to us. Have a great time!
