Style of rig:

Okanagan truck-camper

What’s the purpose of your trip?

It included seeing my 15-year-old granddaughter, Cassandra, compete in the 2015 Canadian Female Box Lacrosse Championships in Calgary. This was very special: Team BC took two golds and a silver, and my granddaughter’s team was one of the gold medal winners.

What brings you to Cranbrook?

I’m visiting an old friend and former work colleague. Having the camper is a great way to visit—I spend the day and evening with my friends and then I get to sleep in my own bed. It’s very convenient for everyone.

Where to next?

I’m off to Osoyoos to visit with more old friends, and then home.
