The St. Paddy’s Day Van Slam

Right.  What’s a Van Slam?

Well a few years ago when my daughter and son-in-law got a VW camper we started heading off for 2-4 day camping excursions… somehow the name slipped in there and stuck.  For this trip we were joined by friends, Lee & Sam, and Ryan.  Ryan was “van-less” but we let him come anyway.  There really is no structure or rules for this club.

After blazing a very wet and rainy trail up north to Anacortes, we pulled into Washington Park and we were basking in dappled sunshine…It was 35 degree sunshine, make no mistake, but it was sunshine.  Sweet!

We had no specific plan further than a big meal of corned beef and cabbage, and lots of campfire time with our pals.  Richie and I packed along our ukuleles for some evening entertainment, and we stuffed in our collection of cool gadgets for the Dudes to play with.  Have a look at a few images:

These deer were wandering through the camp all day.

I made a movie of the event.  Click the link below and come on along with us:

Wonderful weather plus wonderful people = Wonderful adventures!
