We didn't use the Scamp as much this year as last. I used it 118 nights, 26 of which were driveway surfing in Bullhead City while working on Helen's dory and 10 were on my solo trip to Zion. We did put nearly 7900 miles on it this year including the 77 night trip to Nevada, Oregon, and Washington during the summer.
Grand Canyon river trip in March for 24 nights on the river in the canyon. BJ joined her gal friends for 5 nights of hiking, snorkeling, and kayaking in the Channel Islands in August but she couldn't be convinced to do a blog post about it. In late September & early October, BJ and I enjoyed 11 nights on the Green River between Ruby Ranch and the Confluence with my solo canoe, her kayak, and good friends .
build her kayak. It's great fun to build boats with someone else's money and making a mess in their garage! She used the kayak locally through the summer and then used it for the 11 night Green River trip.
switched from Zep polish on the Scamp because with 15 months in the desert it was starting to yellow. The Scamp is all shiny now with a Nu Finish applied. We'll see how this stuff handles desert sunshine.
We're looking forward to a new year of just finding our way around this beautiful country.
We've been using NuFinish for years. It is inexpensive, readily available in stores, easy to apply and buff off, and seems to do a great job.ReplyDelete
Look forward to reading about your 2015 trips. Happy New Year!
Happy New Year to both of you. Your rig is a great sales pitch for NuFinish!Delete
So grateful for long shirt tails! LOVE the picture of the four of you in front of that beautiful barn...Schroeder Family Farm East. Happy New Year to you and BJ and Turk the City Dog. We are blessed to have you as family!ReplyDelete
Ellen & Pat
We're so thankful for you two (and your kids) opening your arms and home to the extended version of your daughter-in-law's family! We love watching what you're doing with the farm and the way you minister with your hospitality. Trusting you'll have a wonderful New Year.Delete
We started using New Finish due to a recommendation from the gentleman who sold us our 1990 13 ft Casita. While it never made the old trailer look like new, we have been using it as our primary polish for 7 years.ReplyDelete
It feels like we are crawling toward Arizona...just got into TX and the storm may delay us even more....but I see 70's in the forecast for next week!!
Happy New Year to you and BJ!
No sense getting in a hurry if you have a nice place to hole up along the way. Next week is looking much better than this week.Delete
