Hello from Nebraska!

Hello everyone, it's Otis & Taura! New owners of a 1977 13' Scamp. We finally got it back from the shop where they put a new axle and wheels on it, and we're getting into this little can of worms

Hope you have a lot of fun with your Scamp. Nebraska has some very nice
areas, especially up around the Niobrara in the north central part of the
State. Where are you from? We used to live in Council Bluffs. Good to see younger folks getting into fiberglass.

Welcome!! My husband and I both grew up in Nebraska and all of our family is still there. IowaDave is right, the Niobrara is one of the most beautiful areas for camping in the state! My mom used to do trail rides in the area south of Sparks and I spent my summers up there. You are going to love camping in your little Scamp! Ours is the same size and we absolutely love it!! Enjoy!

Congrats.....

Nice shiny little camper! Looks like Otis might have to duck a bit inside.

Years ago Canoe Magazine named the Niobrara River as one of its top ten paddling destinations in the US.

We're in Lincoln, and have been tent campers, both car and backpacking, for many years. There have just been enough times where it was too windy, too sandy or too rainy for me to want to tent camp 100% of the time. My parents have always been tent campers as well until they bought their A-Liner a few years ago, and we all camped together on Padre Island for a week where it rained for 7 days straight; the difference between having a dry place to sit and cook (camper) and a wet sandy place to cook (us in a tent) really made the decision for us!

My mom and I have been pretty much everywhere in Nebraska, we just camped in Niobrara State Park and it's really beautiful right now!

Did you mean Scottsbluff?

Nebraska has many beautiful areas. Scotts Bluff, of course. The Sand Hills are really neat, so is Chadron area and Agate Fossil Beds. I have to see the Niobrara area yet.

Council Bluffs is right across the Missouri river from Omaha, so even though you're in Iowa you might as well be in Nebraska But I agree that Scottsbluff is awesome!

Hi Paul
Nope, I meant Council Bluffs Iowa, just across the river from Omaha. Lived there nearly 8 years in the 70s. Had many outdoor type friends in Omaha
and knew the parks department guys in Lincoln real well at that time. Nebraska has its own special brand of wide open flavor, history and hearty citizens. Here's ancouple pics at Bassett Nebraska.

Hi Dave, thanks for the clarification and the pics. We have driven from VT to CO many times. Every time we find some new to us, interesting places to stop to take a break from driving, or bypassing I80 completely, taking a detour. At first we thought it would be a big flat, boring place to get across, but that's not it at all!
