I have to share this!!!!!!
I've had a lot of unusual occurrences happen in my lifetime and another one just took place last week.
I had camped for the night at Winding Hills Park campground, in Middleton, New York, which is approximately halfway between my seasonal campsite (I'm a snowbird from FL) in Watsontown, Pennsylvania and Otis, Massachusetts, where I was headed to visit with friends.
About 5:30 this one particular evening a molded fiberglass camper, looked to be a 19' Escape
, pulled into the campground and passed by my campsite. The couple stopped and said hello and told me that they too had had a 13 foot Scamp
and that it was their first camper back in 2005. I took a picture of their beautiful Escape
Later that evening, as I was walking my pup, I was passing the Escape
and saw the owner outside doing something so I stopped and said hello. I then asked if I could see the inside of their trailer. They (the wife was outside with us at this point) said "of course" and they showed me all the bells and whistles of their beautiful rig…
We then got to chatting......
Now this is where it gets interesting...we discussed where they were from and where I was from (Sebastian, FL)... Then, where we got our trailers from.. I told them I had traveled quite a distance to pick mine up, used, in Virginia… Well turns out it was very close to where they were from. We spoke about "things" that were unique and particular to my Scamp
...etc, etc, etc...
So.....by now you've probably figured it out…..And….YES! .... My Scamp
had been theirs, the first of their MFG campers!!! They said, after traveling cross country and then up to and back from Alaska, they decided they really liked traveling and had wanted something larger. They sold
the Scamp to the couple I had bought it from.
They came by the next morning to say hello to the first mfg that they fell in love with…and to confirm it was the very same one that they had had. The cutting board the owner had polyurethaned was one of the deciding factors. They also took pictures to send to their friends along with this story...
YES.....it's a very small world!
