May Long Weekend 2013

Here on the north side of the 49th parallel, it's a holiday long weekend (falling on the 18th, 19th and 20th this year) known to Canadians as Victoria Day, in celebration of Queen Victoria. It is commonly known as "May 2-4" in reference to both the date, celebrated on the last Monday before May 25, and also the fact that a case of beer consists of 24 bottles/cans - no shit.

My wife and I are going camping (at a spot I will leave unnamed), along with 10-20 friends of ours and their childrens. This is the first time we've had a chance to go camping since the summer before last, and you cannot begin to imagine how excited we both are. We ventured up on the 17th to set up our tent and hang out with our friends who've already been there for the past two nights, and since it was such a nice day out I thought I'd take some pictures.

I am hoping to get at least one case down over the course of the weekend, but I think I'll have to bring extra just in case - better to have too many than not enough, I always say. Time to get dumb and be at one with nature!
