Waiting as gas pumps | Utah. Luis has been on the road for 5 months, living in his retrofitted Express cargo van and rock climbing in some of the country’s best spots.
The front console holds some #vanlife necessities: various chargers, cords and hook-ups; compass; matches; sunglasses; multiple headlamps.
Custom-built bed, cooler, stove, ceiling fan, privacy curtain and reflector, hammock, water container, and dog house. In storage underneath and behind the bed is a panoply of gear for any manner of adventure.
“It’s the only way to really get the windshield clean.” At a rest stop in Idaho, on the road to Jackson, Wyoming.
Lola waits patiently to get on the road again, appearing resigned in her house, built by Luis, which also serves as the van’s center console.
Waiting for a call | van trouble resulted in an unplanned 6-hour pitstop in Pocatello, Idaho. The van would remain there for a week while its transmission was rebuilt.
Finally in Jackson | pieces by Ai Weiwei appear outside the National Museum of Wildlife Art.
