We started out with tentcamping got tired of leaking tents and stepped up to pop-ups, heaven after sleeping on the ground. When the slaves grew up and camping with mom and dad gave them the heebeegeebees we started looking for a hardsided trailer for ease of set up and something we didn't have to worry about drying out or getting broke into so easily. We picked the Scamp because of it's light weight and we like to move down the road and wanted to be able to pull it with both our vehicles. Our first one was a 13'. We decided we needed something bigger if we wanted to live in for an extended time which we did last summer when my husband changed jobs. We went to the 19' 5th wheel, a castle compared to the 13'. Finally after 28 years we had a toilet inside the trailer. Getting use to the stinky slinky took awhile.

We divide our time between Wisconsin and Iowa where we still have a house in Northeast Iowa complete with it's own spring fed trout stream that babbles year around. We live in the middle of town but we are secluded by a 240 acre city owned park above us. A water fall comes out of the bluffs and that is what feeds our creek which flows into the Upper Iowa river across the road. So we have canoeing and lots of inner tubing and they are just completing a bike trail that goes all the way around Decorah. Decorah is a very touristy town and is home to Luther College. Our road is a popular with walkers, joggers and tour buses because of the park so are yard sometimes gets invaded by people who can't read "Private Property".

So are looking forward to doing alot of camping with our trailer. Last summer it was hard because it wasn't like it was sitting there waiting to get hooked up and go because we had to pack it up then go an unpack it. So, hopefully our lives this summer will be more settled. Look forward to talking with you all.
