Hello from Washington, D.C.!

Hey there folks!

We are just now introducing ourselves...though we've been devouring the forums here for the past several weeks. Really like the community you've all built here.

We ordered our Scamp 13' this past week and are super excited to pick it up late next month!

This may be a little crazy, but we're selling most of our possessions, putting the rest in storage, and becoming full-timers right out of the gate. Oh, we've never stayed in an RV before, let alone lived in one. But hey, like John Muir said, sometimes you've got to just "throw some tea and bread into an old sack and jump over the back fence."

We're huge fans of the National Parks and National Forests, as well as state venues for camping, hiking, and so on. Our need for outdoor time has probably been heightened from being country mice living in the city (Washington, DC) for the past few years. And while we've explored the heck out of this part of the country, we can't wait to explore more! And head west...and south...and north....

We're looking forward to becoming a part of this wise and welcoming community of adventurers and we'll see you all on the other side of that back fence!

Mary and Amy

How exciting for you! I wish I could take the plunge and do the same ... but can't just yet.

Welcome aboard, Mary and Amy. I just discovered this site about a month ago and love it. I'm so impressed that I did the same thing you did. I ordered a new Scamp 13 on Tuesday. It's supposed to be ready the last week in October. Maybe we'll be lucky enough to pickup our units at the same time. Hope to meet you. Wish I could leave work and explore full time. That will eventually happen.

Best regards,

Welcome! We got our first Scamp this spring and love it! We can enjoy the outdoors without worrying about weather or the constant dampness of camping. And everyone is so friendly. We gave three "tours" in our first campground. We actually asked Scamp for more brochures because we gave away the four we had.
