Why name the trip: L1616 Le Voyageur? I’ve always liked the French pronunciation of ‘The Traveler.’ Also, my bicycle trip across the United States 35 years ago was on a Schwinn Voyageur, so there is beauty and sentimental value. But what about that cryptic L-16-16? It’s my new license plate number. It feels infused with meaning while being completely random. I liked it immediately.
Why is this a ” scamping” adventure? Scamping = Scooter+camping.
