Scampy and Honda
Always Together

7:30am - Wherever we go, all of us on the Scampy RV Team all go together. Could it be any other way?

When we go grocery shopping and return from the store, everything that we bought gets put in its place right-away! We have Mr Dometic with us. Stuff that we bought that needs to be refrigerated, is stored right-now.

When George needs a potty, no looking around for an available men's room is necessary. Scampy has his own toilet/shower room.

When George needs a nap during the day, he takes his nap inside Scampy.

Something to eat? Scampy's kitchen is right there waiting!

That's why, Scampy and Honda are always together. 😎

9:15am - Breakfast

Breakfast this morning

10am - UPS Store
This morning we are shipping two packages back to Amazon. Part of the returned HUGE solar panel that was previously shipped back.

Amazon shipped the solar panel to us in 3-separate packages. So, it is required by Amazon [as I understand it] to return in 3-separate packages.

11am - 24 Hour Fitness
The closest 24 Hour to our Nite Camp at John & Mimi's home is the one on Grossmont. But that location must be extremely popular. The parking lot and surrounding streets had no space for Honda and Scampy.

There is another 24 Hour on University Avenue. So we headed there.
  • There is parking on the street on University BUT
  • No towels
  • No spa
  • Shower water almost cold
There is a work-a-round! We plan to go to 24 Hour on Grossmont late at nite!

12:30pm - China Super Buffet
When we lived in The City of La Mesa, China Super was our favorite restaurant. This place knows food prep as few other restaurants know food prep!

Every bite of China Super delicious food is a treat to the senses.  How do they do that!?

The plate below is all that I am able to eat. One plate and a bowl of soup fills me up. Other customers go back to the buffet time after time. I am jealous of those customers!

PS: We wish to share our fortune cookie with you!

2pm - Pic especially for Reader Bob!
Today in a comment today, Reader Bob asked:
"How about a pic of Scampy & Honda together or have I missed it?"

Here it is, Bob. Especially for you!

Whatta ya think, Bob?

4pm - Afternoon Camp
We have made an Afternoon Camp. Click [HERE] to view our Google Map location. As you may see for yourself in the Google Map, this Afternoon Camp is to close to I-8 to make Nite Camp here. Too much traffic noise. We are considering our Nite Camp next to Dixieline Hardware [after their 6pm close].

On the way here, shopped at The Wal*Mart Grocery and bought "Top Job Basic Cleaner & Degreaser."

We just gave Top Job a try. Worked great! Now that we have TJ, there are a ton of places that we can put it to good use. [Only 99 cents for 1.25 pints!]

We also stopped at Dixieline Hardware and bought a 1-foot strip of Velcro which shall be used to attach the Stealth Curtains to the inside of Scampy's window frames. [Only $1.79 for the Velcro!]



  1. Looks like you have the perfect set up, glad it works well for you.

    1. Hi OAT,

      And I am delighted to read your comment!

      Thank you,
      Tioga George


  2. How about a pic of Scampy And Honda together or have I missed it?

    1. Hi Bob,

      Yes, we have published Scampy & Honda together pics. But no matter!

      We shall publish a Scampy & Honda together pic, especially for you! [Later today 😎]

    2. That pic is just so cool!

    3. Hi Dee,

      Are you referring "cool" to the pic of Scampy and Honda FIT together?

      Tioga George


  3. We had a Scamp for years! They are manufactured here in our home state of Minnesota. We have even toured the factory.

    1. Hi Barb,

      I would have toured the Scamp factory also, if I had bought it directly from the factory.

      My Scamp was purchased from a very nice couple who bought it and never used it.

  4. So happy that Honda is able to tow Scampy -- I remember there were some concerns initially. From the picture it looks like they are a good fit.

    1. Hi Sheila,

      Yes! A good Honda FIT!

      I could not resist that "play-on-words!"

      Tioga George


  5. I think you are a shining example of how to compromise just a little bit and you are able to keep RV'ing. Both the Honda Fit and the Scamp are perfect for what you need!

  6. Sounds like you are having a wonderful time George.
    Keep it up! We think of you often.
