For the second year in a row, we’re sponsoring Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine and Elevation Outdoor‘s Live Outside and Play Tour! Comprised of Travel Editor, Jess Daddio, and teammate Adam Ritter, the pair have transformed their Ford Transit Van into an all-inclusive adventure vehicle to travel the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic states and Colorado in.
“The Live Outside and Play program is so much more than a festival tour,” says Daddio. “It’s about living simply and authentically, exploring new places, and engaging with outdoor communities and like-minded people.”
Aside from wearing and playing with some of the coolest gear around from us, ENO, La Sportiva, Lifestraw, Farm to Feet, IceMule Coolers, Mountain House Adventure Meals and Delorme In Reach, the pair will be collaborating with locals, businesses, and outdoor advocacy groups to go outside and play, culminating in 20 separate meet-ups throughout the seven-month tour.
Also, check out some of their pics from 2015’s adventures below!
