Video: Van Life 2

10.02.2013

A man and his van, roaming the countryside... Unless you are a 1970s crime-solving superhero (they all seemed to roam America in vans, meting out justice while aided by chimpanzee sidekicks) that premise generally doesn't lead to a happy ending. The man-and-his-van storyline has become the domain of serial killers, broken marriages and poor life choices. Unless, of course, you are Ryan Gardner. Check out the video to see what we mean.
