Dan and Elaine Sivey have wanted to build a home up around Leavenworth for years and years. Recently they bought 17 acres there and are just now starting to build the house. They call the place Kamp Runamok and host a lot of friends and family there.
I got to spend a few days enjoying Elaine's company, a comfy pop-up trailer, the hundred degree heat, a railroad track hike, and the Wenatchee River.
Camping with Elaine: Continuing a 40+ year tradition
We started camping in college and have had a variety of shelters. I'm still scanning old pictures, but here are a few examples. The stories abound: chasing wine down a river, moving a campfire, cooking steaks on sticks, bugging out to a motel when our tent was flooded in a rainstorm. Here, in not-quite-chronological order are some examples.
