Van Lifer, Desert Dweller, Dog Lover


We’ve been living in our van, Bertha, with our two dogs in order to lead a more simple and nature-based existence. We are rock climbers, canyoneers, mountain bikers, kayakers, snowboarders, and public land lovers. We live by the motto, “never leave the dogs behind.”

Pro Tip
Yakima’s SkyBox 21—It’s really the only foolproof, safe storage space we have for our important outdoor gear, so we keep almost everything of value in there with no fear of it being stolen.

Fast Talkin'

What’s a feature you appreciate about Yakima products that makes life easier for you?

There’s comfort in knowing that we have everything we need on the roof. Even when it’s messy and disorganized up there, we know we can find it. An extra helmet? Got it. A dog lifejacket? Got it. Climbing ropes? Got it. Hydroflasks? Got it. Running shoes? Got it. It’s like a Pandora’s box of activities up there!

You have one wish…what would you wish to make it easier to do what you love?

The power of teleportation!!! Or the ability to snap my fingers and know exactly which backpack the gear I’m looking for is in!

How do you have fun, kick back, relax, and “take it easy”?

Nothing makes me feel more relaxed than sitting in my favorite little desert rivers with good music, good company, or a good book.

First Car

Jeep Wrangler

Go-to road trip snack

Pepperoncini Kettle brand chips

If you could stand in someone else's shoes...

Katie Lee’s, so I could have seen Glen Canyon before they flooded it to create Lake Powell.

Guilty Pleasure

Wine from a box.

What would you be doing in an alternate life?

A very eclectic old college writing professor.

And then there is the most dangerous risk of all. The risk of spending your life not doing what you want on the bet you can buy yourself the freedom to do it later.
