CLC Teardrop Camper

Credit: CLC

We saw this camper last year at Canoecopia right after they had completed the prototype and put it on the road for the show tour.  It is beautiful and amazing.  This is especially so if you are young and active and don’t have a thousand pounds of kids, grandkids, and cages of birds to haul around as part of your touring entourage.  If building a boat has been floating about in your mind, this is the obvious follow-up to provide economical and carefree traveling and camping.  These are the links for both the construction video, which CLC just finished, and the Chesapeake Light Craft site.

3-P-100 for February

After recovering from the broken tail bone, I only walked and paddled 42.2 miles in January.  My 3-P-100 program got me to 83.0 miles for February, so I’m looking to get back on track shortly.  The unseasonal warm weather has suddenly brought the flowerbeds alive, so now I have my hands full.  We had one paddle day yesterday, but I decided I needed to stay home and get a handle on some of the yard work.  Actually I didn’t decide; I didn’t feel I had any option.  My wife’s flowerbeds actually feel like a flower farm when everything needs to be done by hand and all 2,520-plus square feet suddenly demand immediate attention.  I have dreams of paddling again.  Honest.
