Congratulations to Abby and Seth, the @packingitout team, for making it to Washington and completing your mission! - 5,000 miles by bike and more than 2,000 pounds of trash cleaned up - this is truly a feat worth celebrating. Thank you for inspiring us all to do our part and look at things a little bit differently!

“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” –Albert Einstein - - Big thanks to @jasonhummel for the stellar capture and camp inspiration⛺️✨

"When I hike I don't listen to music. Just silence and the sound the grass and snow crunching under my boots and myself breathing the cold air." - @koreefilms puts it perfectly (with this image and words). We couldn't agree more, there is something magical about heading outdoors and having that moment all to yourself.

Have you heard? VW unveiled the ultimate concept campervan at the German ‘Caravan’ Show. - Adam reports, "Despite the name, the California XXL is a tease for European markets only. It uses the “Crafter” chassis and builds on the current California model—both unavailable in the U.S. The result looks like the lovechild of a full-size family van and Boeing Dreamliner." - "There's a lofted main sleeping area. Specs show the bed has heating and cooling ability. And above the bed, the XXL’s roof offers a full-panoramic skylight." - ☝️link in profile for full article - What do you think? What's your dream adventuremobile?
