In the beginning there was an idea:
Let's do the Big Canadian Road-Trip
Unfortunately last year's trip around the Rocky Mountain west showed me that I'm not up to tenting every night. So we chose the next best thing, to buy a camperized Westfalia. It's a cute, wine-red, 1991 model and a bigger vehicle than I've ever owned before. In our neighbourhood I think there are about 6 Westfalia's in a 3-block radius, so it's a little weird to be keeping up with the Joneses.
We've learned that we must wave at other Westfalia drivers (the peace sign is reserved for the older air-cooled versions), and then we must name it. The Big Red Brick seems accurate, but a little impersonal. If you have suggestions for a name let us know.
