Boondocking in our SUV Camper and Seeing Whales and Grizzly Bears in Prince Rupert

We boondocked (free camping) outside Prince Rupert then headed out on a Grizzly Bear watching tour. On our way to see the Grizzly Bears, a pod of humpback whales showed up and started making bubble nets near our boat. It was such an amazing site. We've been on so many whale watching tours before, but had never seen bubble nets being made and whales feeding quite like this! Check out our full trip here.

Car Window Screen Updates and Other Projects

We're updating our custom car window screens and working on some other DIY projects to make our SUV camper more comfortable. The changes to our car window screens and window covers make it easier to manage the power for the fans. Our other projects make it easier to play games, watch tv, stay dry, and eat while we're camping, especially as we spend more time in our tiny camper in the winter!
