Heading Northwest

10:16 am:
The Scampy Team has pulled off US 287 to Blog at you. We are 67 miles from Bozeman Montana.

Little iPhone has achieved a 2-bar T-Mobile signal. Way out here in the sticks, that good a signal is kinda spotty! So, we latched on to it.

About 400 miles northwest of here, is the Ponderay/Sandpoint area of Idaho. At Lake RV in Ponderay, Scampy is going to get her fiberglass slot fixed up. You may recall that George had to make that slot in the fiberglass in order to get the 12 volt DC power wires inside one of Scampy's cabinets.

At Sandpoint Pack & Ship, we will be receiving a bunch of stuff that George ordered in recent weeks.




11:39 am:
A Movie!

Yesterday evening, Baby Boid and George made a movie! Here it is!



1:14 am:
Air-Conditioning
The Scampy Team is in the process of obtaining an air-conditioner which shall be installed into Scampy's large roof vent.

This A/C unit is not the kind found in RVs, however. This A/C is a window A/C. Please click [Here] to read about it.



6:24 pm:
Whitehall Camp
When the Scampy Team arrived in the Town of Whitehall Montana, we looked around [As we always do on our arrivals!]

A high place that was visible everywhere we drove, seemed attractive. So, we headed up there!

We made our Nite Camp alongside a dirt road and levelled Scampy out. There is hardly anything close to us. This should be an extremely quiet Nite Camp.

We bought frozen very tasty looking Chicken and Cheese Quesadillas this afternoon. Wow and Yummmmm!

PS: The quesadillas contained horrible tasting gooey cheese and hardly any chicken. There were five. I ate one and trashed four! Yuk!


11:13 pm:
The Sherriff Knocks
An extremely polite Sherriff knocked on Ms. Scampy's door. He informed that I was parked on a county road. And, he advised that if I moved ahead about 1-mile that I would find an area where I would not be on a county road.

It is now, 11:40 pm and I am at that new place now. All leveled out and Blogging to you about this incident.

The Scampy Team moved from [This Location] to the Nite Camp Location link below. About 1.1 miles distant.

Elevation: 4,797 feet

  1. I guess I can assume you have found a roof shroud to cover and protect the A/C unit when in travel mode and a reservoir and pathway for water to travel across the outside of the roof to the ground instead of dripping into Scampy.

    1. Hi Dee,

      This A/C is a standard window unit. It needs no weather protection.

      The condensation does NOT drip into Scampy. The condensation runs exactly where rain runs.

    2. I would suspect that the controls, i.e. on/off, temp control, etc are not weather proof. They are typically inside the home.

    3. Hi Bob,

      The controls that you describe are inside my Scampy home! And easily accessible by me!

  2. Having a really hard time visualizing that thing being installed in a roof vent. Guess we’ll have to wait for the reveal.

    1. Hi Bill,

      Well, you are likely going to enjoy watching the A/C installation, right here on my Blog!

      The A/C has already been delivered to my receiving place. Next comes the fabrication of the window frame weldment.

      After that, the window frame weldment get installed into Scampy's big roof vent.

      Next, the A/C gets attached to the window frame weldment.

      Finally, comes the housing which is attached to the opposite side of the window frame weldment and directs cooled air down into Scampy's interior.

    1. Hi David,

      If the A/C gets destroyed by vibration, I'll have the A/C removed.

  4. I have a small ac unit similar to yours mounted in the back door of my 2001 van conversion. It is still going strong after 150,000 miles. I bet yours will be fine. I don’t use it a lot but it sure is nice to have when I need it.

  6. George are you sure about installing the window unit upside down? From what I’ve read, the coolant will flow back to the pump and choke it. You can always have it installed as a side window. Just don’t want you to have any explosions like with the little heater. Good luck.

    1. Hi Mercury,

      This A/C will not be installed upside down.

    1. Hi Bill,

      OK, I understand.

      I do not believe that this A/C will be affected by vibration. I was just answering David Reed's question.
