Video: Surviving a Force of Nature

10.03.2013

When it's not dumping rain in the pacific northwest, snow flurries are settling, leaves are dumping off the trees and Old Man Winter seems to have shed his walker, colostomy bag and oxygen tanks--he's pissed this time around and he's coming early. Which means that the window on easy-riding-days is rapidly closing. Hello, mud, crippled drivetrains and daily bouts with mild hypothermia. Goodbye, hero dirt.

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.
