Our Scamps last hurrah ... maybe

Well,., we did make it tot eh 3 day/night yoga retreat at Orchard Beach State Park in Manistee, Mi.

No yoga on the beach as the very high lake levels and the ice pack during the winter eroded all the beach and undercut the bank. The park actually moved a cabin some 300' back for the edge so it would be useable for some time to come.

The stairs on the lower half were gone with about a 20' drop to the edge of the water.

Great park, very quiet and nice facilities. Only a few hook-up sites but we were able to get an electric only. Worked fine as the water supply was only 20' from the rear of the Scamp so no issue with keeping the fresh water tank topped up.

Made a newbie mistake. Filled the fresh water tank at eh dump/fresh water station when we pulled in. Hmmm forgot we had winterized and the hot water tank was empty so we went through our 12 gals of water quickly as some went to the hot water tank.

More details for here and our next leg of the trip in the next post.

Home now and cleaning up the Scamp and hope some one will give it a great home.

Sorry to hear of the erosion. Same thing happened at McLain SP in the UP the previous year IIRC. Those lakes have a lot of power.
