Well I had my first Scamping trip for the 2014 season.I took my grandson to a state park in Pa for a local get away.The first day went fine until I saw what I forgot to bring.There was a Lowes about ten miles away so I spent money I did not count on, as always.We had a great fire that night,lots of local wood for sale.The next day we checked out the campground and did a lot of nothing until dinner.The wind started to blow a little so we ate dinner inside.All of a sudden we heard a loud crash,I ran outside to see my awning was over the top of my camper the wrong way! The wind was fierce and ripped the stakes from the ground and blew the awning back so hard it bent two of the three mounts on the roof.The bolts were ripped out of the two mounts on the ends.The center mount was the only one holding the awning in place. We fought to bring the awning back to the correct side and cranked it back in. That took two of us as it was still extremely windy.Well back to Lowes the next day to buy a step ladder so I could take down the awning the rest of the way so I could tow it safely.Now I wait to hear from the insurance adjuster to call me.Good thing I had insurance! Here are some pictures of the damage.
