Rolling with van is a website that began as a blog of my adventuring experiences with the kids. In 2017, the kids and I drove across Canada. You can imagine that many conversations were had on the drive. One in particular, that they continued to talk about long after parking the van, was to have a space of their own to vlog. They called it Get Kids Out, or #getkidsout, Their intentions: to have parents using the hashtag on social media platforms, to raise awareness of all the good times had when getting kids outside, and seeing what others are up to.
#getkidsout has since evolved into promoting active school travel in collaboration with Ever Active Schools.
All our posts aim at promoting active lifestyles by getting outside and experiencing some of the places that are at our fingertips. However, our intentions are also to encourage kids to be creative and, create! Recently, #getkidsout has also been involved in promoting active school travel in collaboration with Ever Active Schools.
In 2019, the kids and I made it to the West Coast of Canada, but our farthest East Coast adventure was to Cape-Breton, Nova Scotia. After touching the Pacific Ocean in Tofino this past summer, they agree that maybe touching the Atlantic from Newfoundland should be next. So 2020? Maybe NFLD!
For now, keep on rolling!
