Ogden Outdoor Adventure Show 311 - The Vansion (Take 2)

It took us 2 weeks to get this one right, but then we nailed it! From down by the Ogden River to the top of Powder Mountain, we spent time with full-time van-lifer, Jake Nelson, in The Vansion, discussing the realities of van life, how to build out your own van, and van hacks. Also, #OnTheDocket featuring upcoming adventure events, news, a GEAR:30 segment, Outdoor Jukebox and more. We even harken back to draggin the 'vard. Maybe we'll start our own van-drag thing. Or, something. Enjoy Ep. 311 - The Vansion (Take 2).
