One of the things I love about our Westfalia camper van is that we can pick up and GO! (Here’s a list of 10 reasons why we love our VW Westfalia Camper Van.) Last week for Father’s Day we headed up to Lava Lake, only 35 minutes from our home.

We set up camp, and headed straight to the water.

It seems that we were just dusting off the snow and getting ready for spring, and now summer is here!

One thing I love about our Westy camping is it’s simple and quick in getting settled.

When we camp for a night, I always bring food ready to assemble, so there’s no cooking involved.

DIY Westfalia ventilation

For ventilation, opening the back (that has a screen), we came up with our own system of cross ventilation.

Buy screening, and cut it the size of the 2 front windows.

Roll the windows down, and magnet the screens in place.

No bugs in our VW!
