Rock Climbing New Jack City - Rob's Rambunctious Ride 5.9

Vanning Ain't No Joke and neither is rock climbing!

Rock Climbing Ain't No Joke!

Here is a first person video of me leading a 5.9 in New Jack City about an hour and a half away from Joshua Tree called Rob's Rambunctious Ride.

I really enjoyed this route because it moves around a lot to the left and right of the bolts and keeps you thinking.

The wall is the puzzle and you are the puzzle piece. It's fun figuring out how to move your body in the correct ways to get up the wall.

5.fun! Sigh Otter on the belay and Wander the Stubborn Sniffer for the moral support.

“Vanning Ain’t No Joke.” This is all my friend Brad Parker said to me after showing him photos of this 1978 Dodge Tradesman 200 I was going to buy to live in. I had no idea what this meant at the time. I had no idea what I was doing. That little saying stuck in my head. I didn’t know why he had said that originally but I sure do now. Living in a van forces you outside your comfort zone. You are constantly learning and growing. You are always facing problems you have to overcome. You are always moving, always going...

Vanning definitely Ain’t No Joke!!!


After 4 years of living in a van, many people have told me they live in vans because of me or that I have changed their lives. That’s where this magazine comes from. I thought to myself. If I could change peoples lives just from living my own life and show it on Instagram then how can I do this on a bigger scale? Not only do I have tons of stories and information to share but I know lots of people who also do. 


I called my brother Neal Eisler and asked him if they wanted to start a van life magazine with me. We could change peoples lives I told them. After getting them on board, we got to work to make something we could be proud of...something that could not only change peoples lives but change peoples mindsets. I am really excited to share this first issue with everyone and can’t wait to share future issues we haven’t written yet.
