Four Wheel Campers & New Belgium Brewery Hit The Road
A five episode web series devoted to capturing the Pop Up Life experience through the lens of a collective of unique individuals – climbers, snowboarders, skateboarders, and musicians living life on their own terms.
The caravan of American Off-Road Vehicles, equipped with Four Wheel Campers lightweight, low-profile, durable pop-up campers, crossed through 6 western states and included a wide cast of characters including climber Jonathan Siegrest, climber/surfer Jessica O’Bryan, professional snowboarders Danny Kass, Chad Otterstrom and Alex Andrews, snowboard mountaineer Laura Hadar and many more.
The adventures begin at the Four Wheel Camper factory in Sacramento, CA., where climber Jonathan Siegrist picks up his new rig and then heads west, to climb at Donner Summit. A trip to visit snowboarder Danny Kass in Mono Lake takes an unexpected turn due to wildfires nearby.
Viewers will get to experience the impact of the California wildfire smoke, get an intimate look at off-the grid living in Utah with a private backyard cement skatepark, see the beauty of lesser known National Parks, and imagine a simpler and perhaps more sustainable life, immersed in nature, with everything you need and nothing that you don’t.
Caravan producer and photographer Matt Alberts had this to say, “Traveling in these AEV’s, kitted out by Four Wheel Campers, allowed us to get to places you could never get to in a van. We were mindful of the resources we used including water and solar power and took great efforts to leave each place better than we found it. New Belgium Brewery, America’s first carbon-neutral brewery even paid to offset the carbon used on the trip. It truly blew my mind how simple this style of living can be.”
