Day 102

Salem Oregon

The Scampy Team is holing up in the City of Salem. We want to view The Eclipse from here.

From the beginning of June, we have travelled in the Salem vicinity from the lower part of Washington State to Lincoln City, Oregon on the Pacific Coast. That's during June, July and August.

Salem, Oregon is usually pretty calm place. But lately, there may a little bit Eclipse Mania going on in Salem.

Laundry Day

Day 101

The Best Part of Laundry
This morning, I found out about the "best part of doing laundry!" It's the folding!

I never before considered doing the laundry as being some something special thing to do. But when I took my dirty laundry to the Lincoln City Coin Laundry for their Wash And Fold a few weeks ago, I got pointed in the proper direction!

The lady in charge wanted to know how I wanted my laundry done?

 Flat in a stack?
 On hangers?

[There may be more options. Can't remember]

Miss her...

Day 100
MsTioga Nostalgia

I was at the Salem RV Park dump station this morning. A guy pulled up to the other dump station. I noticed that he was driving a Fleetwood Tioga.

° Me: What year is your Tioga?
° Guy: A 1991.
° Me: For many years, I RVeed in one. Same year as yours. Had good times.

For awhile after that meeting, I seemed to be in a very quiet and mellow mood. MsTioga.........?

Day 99

The Good Old Days

Back in the days when I was young, from the 1930s, and even as far as the early 1960s, things were better than now. People that I knew were unique people. Not like now:

➜ I speak to phone support for any company. The very last thing that is always said to me is, "Is there anything else that I could do for you?" Not, "Thanks for calling." Or maybe, "How'd we do?" Or maybe, "See ya!" Why ask this question. Maybe I forgot what I phoned for?
➜ I say thank you to somebody. The answer is always, "No problem." Not sometimes. Not some people. But every single person says exactly the same thing!!

Day 98

Tweaking = Easier Life
Life here on the Scampy RV Team just keeps getting better and better! This is happening because all of us are inveterate tweakers.

We tweak everything. We tweak things that on their own, may not amount to much. However, taken all together, they change the very essence of our daily life.

Just this morning, we tweaked about belts, for goodness sakes! This may be close to the bottom of something that if improved, would lead an easier life!

Mac Lives!

Day 97

Rise From The Dead!
Just past midnite this morning, our Mac Air computer turned itself off! Nothing that I did restarted the Mac! For example [shift + control + option + power key] supposedly, the ultimate Mac restarter.

Our beloved Mac seemed to have died!

I Blogged to you the following from Little iPhone:
"I'm making this blog post using Little iPhone! Tomorrow I'll try going to an Apple store to see what may be done.

Living in the computer age without a computer is the pits!"

Day 96

Backing Up Accidents
We have had yet another accident with Scampy. It happened at nite. A couple of nites ago. It wasn't a biggie. But big enough!

On our way to a Nite Camp, we had entered the parking area of an office building. The way forward was too narrow. So, we went to backup. Because it was dark [11pm]. When Scampy was too far right, we did not see it. Scampy jackknifed into TrĂ¡nsito's right rear! TrĂ¡nsito's taillight broke. And, there was bumper damage too. The same bumper that was replaced only a few weeks ago!

Day 95

Power Sources

How does a Vagabonder-Supreme outfit such as the Scampy RV Team get by when the weather closes in? We are addressing, the electric power issue!

Well, the very first thing that we do, is to have faith in the absolute certainty that we shall be successful in everything that we do! And in this case, what we do when the Sun is hiding behind clouds.

We never do:
★ Doubt
★ Double Mindedness
★ Worry
★ Fear
★ Panic

First Day

Day 94

My Fulltiming Life

I was thinking this morning, that my life as a fulltimer, with the dawning of today, reached a fantastic and even magical threshold!

Although this is an extremely subtle and difficult to perceive change, it is there. It has arrived. Nothing shall be the same for me ever more as I continue onward into my future. Traveling as a member of the Scampy RV Team!

Day 93



I've just returned from a partial round of golf. Golfing was very, very tiring for me today! I played only 7-holes before caving in!

I played one hole over 400 Yards. One hole over 300 yards. Three holes over 200 yards. And two over 100 yards.

I walked the course pushing a cart. And..... of my three golf partners, as we walked the course, I was always behind the others. Breathing like an old wagon horse!
