June 1st, 2017. Day 1.
Recorded in Medina, ND.
This is the first podcast from our first Spring Tour of 2017. We are in the back of a van which is rigged as a camper. Over the past week Dave has been adapting the back of our 1998 Toyota Sienna. We talk about the design and materials that Dave used. These are the pictures of how it is rigged up. This is a beta-test for the Scamp that we intend to buy.
Stephanie also created black-out panels for the van windows. She talks about the challenges she had in the process.
Yesterday we did our food shopping and also purchased a new Coleman Stove after returning the cheap piece of crap we had purchased from Wal-Mart. We discuss the stove that we returned, the return process and what we think of Wal-Mart.
Dave planted the garden the day before we left and we had fresh morels and asparagus for dinner.
We were up early, packed and repacked the car a few times and on the road by 11:30. A good gig in Fargo, ND, and then we drove to Jamestown for another very good gig. Dave tells a joke.
We arrived at the town park in Medina, ND, made some sandwiches and now we are podcasting, Scrabbling and getting ready to sleep. We discuss recent games of Scrabble that we have played.
We are headed to Billings, MT, tomorrow!
