Vanlife Tour: Jack Campion’s VW Crafter Mobile Chalet

If you enjoy adventures in the great outdoors, odds are that you're not content staying put in one place for too long. There are simply too many places to go and things to do for an adventurer to remain happy in a single locale. Combined with the ludicrous cost of living in many mountain towns, this desire for mobility and flexibility has led to the rise in "vanlife," a phenomenon in which spend copious amounts of time and money transforming commercial vans into mobile, self-contained homes.

Perusing social media after saying "van" within earshot of your phone will surely result in a feed crammed with glamour shots of immaculately-built rigs, but glamour shots don't tell the whole story. Enter Jack Campion, who has made a great video explaining the reality of building and living in a VW Crafter van. If you're considering selling your kidney and buying a van, this video is certainly worth a watch, for inspiration, if nothing else.

Change is a constant of life. We can’t control change, but we have autonomy over how we react to it. For folks who thrive in the outdoors, this rings especially true. We’re constantly at the mercy of Mother Nature, coping with changing elements, seasons, conditions, or goals. For someone like filmmaker Renan Ozturk, his life was always dictated by climbing.

VIDEO: Bolting Big Routes in Peru with The North Face

Head down to the arid Peruvian Andes with a team of North Face climbers including Emily Harrington, Nina Williams, Matty Hong, and Jacopo Larcher, and watch as they bolt new routes and complete first ascents.
