2012 Nissan Quest: Girl Scout Camporee
October 17, 2012
Earlier this summer, when the Girl Scout council announced the dates for the Greater L.A. Girl Scout Camporee weekend, the first thing I did was make sure our Nissan Quest would still be in the long-term fleet.
Camporee in late October, Quest with us until December. Whew.
Now, as the time nears when 6,000-plus girls will be descending on a Southern California recreation area (yes, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego and Orange Counties, you'll wanna plug your ears), I've tentatively added a Nissan NV to my master transportation plan.
Moving eight girls, two "enthusiastic" volunteer adults, tents, tables, chairs, coolers, cooking equipment, sleeping bags, backpacks, and likely a bottle or two of sparkly nail polish, 75 miles during peak rush hour L.A. traffic requires a master plan.
Here comes the true test of my packing skills.
