Crazy For Camping—Summer 2021

After spending a week in a rental camper in August 2020, Clara exclaimed “You know what we should do next summer!? We should go CRAZY FOR CAMPING”! We looked at one another, and then we looked at the kids, and in typical Suter fashion we said “… huh… maybe we should…”.

The next several months were a whirlwind of buying and upgrading a camper (our beloved Taxa Cricket), acquiring a tow vehicle (our less-than-beloved 2011 Nissan Pathfinder), subletting our home for the summer, and spending untold hours prepping and planning.

On July 1, 2021 we set off on a nine and a half-week road trip from Vancouver, BC to Cape Breton, NS. We discovered so much of our beautiful country and stopped along the way to see friends and family. It was wonderful.

And then it took me almost a year to compile this video, quel surprise. Clara says “I hope you like it”!
