Prepping



Get Scampy Ready To Roll

1pm - We just returned from 24 Hour Fitness and got Scampy out of the Lone Wolf storage yard.

Scampy's battery was checked with a hydrometer. A really good reading. About 1275 on all cells!

There is very little to do in order for Scampy to be ready. We have duplicate things in both Twayler and Scampy. For example, there is an electric razor, toothbrush, clothing in both RVs.

Scampy, Honda and George



4pm - Headed out from Lone Wolf
We are going to travel west toward the Town of Pearblossom.

6pm - City of Palmdale
When we arrived at Pearblossom, we learned that this is a very tiny town. We decided not to make a Nite Camp in Pearblossom.

Using our paper California map, we spotted the City of Palmdale not too far away, and continued on.

The first thing to do when we arrive at a place that we are going to stay the nite, is locate our Nite Camp site. Then we made an Evening Camp in a large and nice shopping center located [Here].

Baby Boid seems very happy in his place on Scampy's dining table. The window screen is raised so that Boid may look outside. He likes looking around, and tweets at things that he sees.

7pm - Scampy's tail light
The right tail light for stopping and turning burned out. This has to be attended to immediately! We cannot drive around with a burned out tail light!

We went to a nearby AutoZone. It was sheer luck that we found exactly the bulb needed. There was only one left, and it was hanging in another bulb's slot!


11pm - Nite Camp
We made our Nite Camp near the AutoZone, in a parking lot.

  2. What a great picture of you and Scampy Mr. George! Are you able to stand up straight in Scampy? The picture makes it look shorter than you are if you would be inside. I love the towns' name of Pearblossum! Enjoy your getaway! ~Pam in Louisiana

    1. Hi Pam,

      There is about 4" between my head and Scampy's ceiling.

      Living inside Scampy seems a lot more roomy inside that it appears from the outside.

  3. If you switch to LED bulbs you will likely never have to replace one again :-)

    1. Hi Andrew,

      The thought of a tail light being an LED never crossed my mind!

      Thank you sooooo much!

    2. Not sure if a place like autozone sells them but I know you can cross-reference part numbers online to get an LED with the same bulb base as your regular bulbs.

      Im not entirely sure but I THINK blinkers may need a special flasher to regulate the LED's but not totally sure.

    3. Hi again, Andrew,

      I just phoned AutoZone. They have a replacement LED for Scampy's 2057 standard bulb.

      I'm going there to buy! 😀
