Susanville

8:51am:
We are on the road to Susanville California and made a Breakfast Camp next to a lake. On the menu is French toast with real maple syrup and a cup of milk.

Scampy Team Story
I've been thinking about how we came to be The Scampy Team. It all began in June 2016. That was when I went off all my prescription medication.  That changed everything by improving my health so much!

In September 2016, I decided to live in Jojoba Hills RV Park. In order to apply to Jojoba, I had to own an RV. That's why I bought Twayler the trailer. While waiting to come to the top of the Jojoba waitlist, Twayler was moved to Lone Wolf RV Park in Apple Valley California.

A little after moving to Lone Wolf, I decided to go camping. I bought a pop-up tent and went out to a forest. What a disaster! At my age, tents are a big no-no for me.

But I still wanted to go camping. Online I found out about Scamp Trailers and phoned the company for info. They gave me a name of a person who had bought a Scamp trailer, and I made arrangements to take a look.

After looking at the trailer and learning that I liked it, I began to say goodbye to the Scamp owner. She said to me, "Aren't you going to make me an offer?" I did not know that she wanted to sell her Scamp!

We began to talk about me buying it. And I made an offer which was accepted.

So now I was a Scamp owner and my Honda FIT became a tow vehicle. Which turned out to be a mistake. A Honda FIT does not have the capacity to tow the Scamp. That's how I came to replace my Honda with a Ford Transit.

Note: To be continued.

Mac Air keyboard problems
Many keys on my Mac Air laptop are working crazy.
* Delete key clears the letter in front instead of being a backspace.
* Volume keys make the screen go up
* Arrow left key make the screen go up
* Arrow right key brings the screen back down
* Illumination keys don't do anything

Note: I found out that the Keyboard section of System Preferences had become improperly setup. How that happened, I have no idea?! The keyboard is working OK now.




11:10pm:
Very low data speed 
I learned today that my data speed has been throttled down so much that I am not able to post to Blogger. The reason for this throttling is that I have gone over my 51gb data allotment.

My allotment gets refreshed on June 10th. Until then, I will have a challenge to make Blog posts.

  1. Good morning. Maybe you'll night camp in Valley Falls, OR where Wagonteamaster.com Bob Skelding blogger lives. A beautiful area. Do pictures use up a lot of your data?

    1. Hi Rita,

      I may reach Valley Falls Oregon in the next few days.

      I don't know about data usage from showing images on my Blog. Most of my data goes for watching videos.
