Back in the saddle after a much-needed break – yep you guessed it – camping the Doc Bus! It was a lovely weekend putting my trusty westy through her paces.

Sooke is likely the further West the Doc Bus will be during its 16,000km documentary pilgrimage across Canada!

The Doc Bus meets a Friend – her double! The ’86 Westy on the left is actually the one in our video, before the Doc Bus was mine!

Holy To-Do’s Batman!

The amount of to-do’s ahead of me are somewhat daunting: setting up meetings, buying geer, exploring data plans and network coverage options, getting sponsor decals made, installing a car alarm and other security features, putting the finishing touches to our new website, which launches next week! And more, yeesh!

The Creativity of Limitation

I am so grateful to everyone who helped us raise enough money on Indiegogo to get the Doc Bus across the country and back! I feel very pleased that we raised so many friends and funds. We made enough that I am in no doubt about setting off on this wild adventure, but frankly, it’s not enough to work my butt off all summer. Yay, best-case-scenario! I’m going to do what I can and enjoy the rest!
