Introducing Juniper

We’re soon off on another adventure. We’re going westward to explore our country and some northwestern American states.  And we’ll be traveling in a new way, aboard a motor home. We named her Juniper and the name was carefully picked.

We have a dear friend named June. Over the years, she, her husband Glen, my husband Ken and I have enjoyed lazy afternoons in their pool, a few rain-soaked camping trips and many great meals, usually accompanied by a bottle or two of nice wine.

Often our conversations turn to travel and June asks why we still enjoy camping in a tent. “You should get a hippy van!” she has jokingly told us on many occasions.

Last spring, her joking turned a little more serious. With all the traveling you do, you should get a motor home, she said. And now’s the time to do it. Why wait?

June’s question resonated with us. We had been toying with the idea for a few years and Ken had done a fair bit of research. Why wait indeed, we took the leap.

Once we decided our motor home needed a name, we searched for a way to honour our friend June and her well-timed suggestion.

Juniper it is! Juniper also happens to be the name of a hardy shrub that grows throughout the northern hemisphere, including far off places we’ve visited like Russia, China and Nepal. Seems right on so many levels.

Our new adventure beckons…
