Just a couple of Canadians cruisin’ around North America in their 1984 Dodge camper van…
Pre-van life, we had been living in Toronto doing the whole people-clipping-their-nails-on-the-subway-beside-you and drunk-people-arguing-outside-your-window-at-3AM city life. Don’t get me wrong, we still love the city but it was just getting too expensive and too stressful. We spent a year saving while anxiously searching for a van to no avail.⠀
After several disappointing leads, we decided to move to Alberta on a whim with hopes of having better luck out west. We found Clementine a couple weeks before moving and sealed the deal instantly without even seeing her in person.⠀
After restoring the interior to a more modern glory, we hit the road and drove all the way to Mexico before going coast to coast in the US twice, and completing our cross-country drive in Canada from Victoria, BC to St. Johns, NL – and back. We run a web development business so we’re able to work while travelling and have also become quite the makeshift mechanics.⠀
Along the way, we launched a camping directory where we add all of our campsites so other travellers can follow along. We’ve got no plans of stopping and are learning and loving new things every day.
