a man. a woman. a plan. a vanagon.

On May 5, 2011, we picked up our baby: a 1985 Volkswagen Vanagon Westfalia camper.

We don't have an actual baby, so we decided to pour all our time, money and effort into a 29-year-old vehicle.

These are our summer stories, travels, pictures, projects, adventures, lusted-after accessories and anything else that's fit to print.

Words and things by Vanessa. Photos by Corey. Usually.

Introducing Harriet: tiny dog and love of our lives.
We adopted her from Toronto Animal Services in November (A+ adoption experience).
This weekend, we took her camping for the very first time.

Thank god I bought a ukulele instead of a tuba this week (and thanks in advance to all my camping pals who will have to suffer as I learn how to play a brand new instrument around the campfire this year…).

Love this neat and tidy little box from tent-mark.com. I’d store all my fiddly little things in it.

Why yes, that is a tiny motorcycle inside the Vanagon. Seems we just can’t quit yellow vehicles from the 80s.
