Rolling with Van started when my kids and I decided to drive across Canada to explore the geography of our country in our van in honour of Canada 150. We spent 64 days on the road, racking up more than 14 000 km. We dubbed ourselves “Me+3.” The “Me” referred to myself, and the “+3,” my kids. We spent much of our time in the outdoors, tent camping, exploring, and adventuring.

The trip ended and we settled back into school life but the kids often asked why not continue the blog? Following many discussions, they have decided that they wanted to have their own little corner on the Rolling with Van site to promote getting kids out, and so from there was born #getkidsout. At this time, we are working on many small projects that we expect to post in the coming weeks. Visit our #getkidsout page to learn more about it. 


Bike-to-School day is around the corner in Alberta so it's perfect timing to brush up on some bike safety!
