Scamp II


 It's the American Dream on wheels. And the dream keeps getting bigger.
Our neighbors, Tom and Sandy, started out experimenting with a small sport trailer in 2008 to see if they enjoyed the camping trailer experience. They took it around the state and elsewhere, with a dream to visit every state park in Minnesota.
They've had a lot of fun since and so this spring they decided to jump in all the way. They sold their old pal to a gal who lost her Scamp in an accident. Yesterday they brought home their new Element, a bigger and heavier model (they've bumped up the size of their tow vehicle as well). Tomorrow they head out on their two-day shakedown cruise to Sibley Park.
Sandy gave us a quick tour (Tom was golfing) and it is spectacular. It's got everything -- bath, kitchen, bedroom, tv and even a "slide-out" for extra elbow-room at the park.
We wished them many happy miles, then looked up the old gag photo we took in April of 2008 featuring Kathleen's VW giving the Scamp a tow. Here it is.
