I built a motorcycle, I bought a van and then I left...I left my job, my friends, my fiancée, my dogs and every other thing that brought me comfort.
It was an endearing symbol of the ‘60s, but the iconic Volkswagen Van has since becomes a sought-after and expensive collectible. And while you can’t quit your job and drive across the country in this VW Van cooler, it’s a slightly cheaper way to dodge grown-up responsibilities—at least for a weekend.
I left Wisconsin full of energy. I had left my job and loaded my bike and all my gear in the back of the van and said my goodbyes...I had started my journey.
Sometime it’s not just about what a car is, it’s what it represents. Even just sitting there, machines project the potential for speed, for escape, for the journey. The Delica? Your ultimate adventure vehicle.
Summer is in full swing, which means it’s time to head outside for some fun in the sun. And you know what that means: hamburgers, hot dogs, watermelon, and more.
Gizmodo rounded up the best LED flashlights back in 2012, and Indefinitely Wild has a great primer as well, but now it’s time to ask the audience. Whether you suffer frequent power outages, spend your time outdoors or in the garage, or just feel better having one around, a great flashlight is an essential tool. But…
On March 27, while riding a $450 motorcycle through Vietnam, I lost my backpack. It contained my camera, computer, and two hard drives containing seven months of RAW photos and videos. This is what I learned from the ordeal.
Buying a $450 motorcycle to ride across a communist country devastated by war with your own sounds like a great idea, right? I thought so. Here's how you can do it too.
If you're out fishing, hunting, or camping, a decent knife is a good thing to have on hand. If you haven't honed the blade in a while, you can do it along the top edge of your vehicle's window.
Gear To Go Outfitters in Brooklyn, NY has realized none of their customers can actually use the stuff the store sells, so they're running a "Trail Taxi" shuttle service to get New Yorkers away from the infernal clatter of the subway and into the relative-wilderness of some upstate hiking trails.
Corbet's Couloir of Jackson Hole, Wyoming has been called "America's scariest ski slope," because it's a lot steeper than it looks here. Elu the pup wasn't too sure about dropping in at first, but had a solid run once she got her courage up! Snow dogs rule.
Remember your first time fishing? Maybe you were with somebody special, enjoying the halcyon surroundings of an alpine lake. Or maybe you just went absolutely nuts and screamed at the top of your lungs like this lady.
IndefinitelyWild is Gizmodo's new sub-site covering adventure travel in the outdoors, the vehicles and gear that get us there and the people we meet along the way. Here's everything you need to know.
Last weekend, Lara, Wiley and I found what's got to be the most beautiful car camping spot on god's green earth. If you have the ability to drive a car to Big Sur, read a map and cook over a fire, you can camp there too. Here's how.
Over Labor Day weekend, I took Wiley and Lara backpacking into the High Sierras, crossing a 12,000-foot pass and camping in the shadow of 14,000-foot peaks.
