The Van Project
Vanlifers Bay Area, California
We’re Matt and Amanda, a photographer and copywriter team travelling the American West in our 1964 Clark Cortez motorhome, which we renovated ourselves two years ago. Since hitting the road we’ve been following warm weather to climbing and hiking destinations across Utah, Colorado, California, Idaho, Wyoming, Nevada and Arizona. When we’re not hard at work creating content for eco-friendly brands, climbing, or hiking, we’re probably soaking in a hot spring or hunting down the creamiest, tastiest ice cream.
We’re currently pursuing our dream of completing our P1, P2, and P3 paragliding certifications and travelling around the Bay Area.
We randomly met at Burning Man in 2014, but then found out we went to the same high school in Connecticut!
Our relationship started with a 3.5-month trip in South American traveling from Ecuador to Southern Patagonia.
Matt worked for the Forest Service for two seasons as a wildland firefighter.
The Charge+ TTI is our go-to tool on the road. Its electrical-specific features like replaceable wire cutters, wire strippers, electrical crimpers, and multiple screwdriver bits are extremely handy when we need to perform quick electrical work on our solar power system or on our RV electrical system.shop Charge®+ TTi
