Michael Wardian- Can’t Find Time to Camp? Look Out Your Backdoor!


Hey Everyone,

So, we got our The North Face MiniBus 33 tent and last week before work (amazing what you can do when you wake up early with little ones), the guys and I put up the MiniBus 33 in the backyard.

We had been talking about camping for weeks, months really and so it was great to get it set up and for Pierce and Grant and me to a lesser extent to get to spend some time in it.

They helped with all aspects of the set up but thinking it might have been easier without their “help” but I loved every second of it and expect that after they do it a few more times they will be very good and fast at the construction of the tent in different locations.

Pierce and Grant have invited their friends over to check out the tent and play Star Wars in it, think it might even be a Death Star some of the time.

The guys are also using it as “base” and their “hideout” and have learned to keep the doors closed to avoid getting bugs inside.


We are really looking forward to getting a lot of use out of it and can’t wait to get it out of the backyard and into the wild.

Hope all is well on your ends and look forward to hearing what adventures you are up to with your children.


The Wardians
