hello & howdy
i’ve been super busy this week! i bought a scamp fiberglass travel trailer
but i decided i didn’t want to tow anything so i traded it in for a class-c rv.
the class-c gets really bad gas mileage and everytime i need to leave my dispersed dry-camping site in the national forest to go adventuring it’s sort of become a pain in my tuchus.
so what could i do?
i had to buy a 16 foot casita!
since trixie my kia soul cannot tow anything, i had to sell her and buy a larger vehicle with a towing capacity of 6k pounds. i like to be on the safe side.
you should have seen me trying to park each of my new toys in my narrow driveway! after several failed attempts i decided to use an rv storage place a few miles down the road when i’m not on the road.
ALL of that in just the last week!
here we have the inside of of the SCAMP. there are several different layouts. this is the model i prefer and here’s the inside layout:
on and on my mind careens towards a bright future.
or it could be a doomed one. i can’t tell yet.
still with me?
all joking aside, the idea of heading out on the road in a small travel trailer for 6 months or a year post-retirement thrills me!

while i was out boondocking on BLM lands, the kids finished up their explorer portraits.

meanwhile at the sketchbook table this was happening.
while i draw with my gouache, i watch youtube videos about full-time, traveling, casita dwellers on my roku player.
