For years, Kevin and his friends had an annual tradition to go camping during the May long weekend at Shuswap Lake, which is located in the interior of British Columbia. Every year since they were sixteen, Kevin and his three closest friends would pack up the car and drive to the lake. Even as adults, they still found time to get together and carry on this tradition. One year, Kevin had other commitments which he could not break, and therefore he was unable to go. It was the first year in the last decade that the four of them would not all be together for their annual camping trip.
