The Skamper pop top camper flew the coop Friday. KC (left) paid cash for the camper Monday but couldn't pick it up until Friday. It only took a couple of hours to get it off the pickup and firmly secured to this 10-foot trailer. It's actually quite an ingenious way of utilizing a lightweight camper.
The completed rig is shown below. KC was very happy to get the camper and we were very happy to wave good-bye to it. We now have our pick-up truck back after a 3+ year absence.
|Del Rio Springs gets some well deserved attention next week.|
The very first Arizona Territorial Capitol was set up here in 1864.
Did you now, that when Fred Harvey decided to export water from Del Rio Springs that "This movement has been decided upon from the fact that the government chemists at Washington have analyzed the waters of these springs and pronounced them the purest of any in the nation, with the possible exception of the famous Rock Springs, Wyo. product." (Source: http://www.sharlot.org/library-archives/days-past/del-rio-springs-provided-water-for-many-northern-arizona-towns/)
I've always been fascinated with Del Rio because it is technically the tippy top of the flowing headwaters of The Verde River. Someplace long, long ago, I read that spring water actually domed above ground level when settlers first arrived. Those days are long gone, of course. We sure wish we could attend the festivities Wednesday.
