Why did I create The Sierra Mule?

Being a gear-heavy outdoor sports enthusiast most of my life, I finally got tired of having very little room in my vehicle after packing it and having expensive gear strapped all over the outside. To change my game I bought a Sprinter van and had it up-fitted as a configurable “Adventure Van” so I could store my gear, my friends and myself inside. No more lousy, overpriced mountain motel rooms or pitching a tent in the dark after a long drive in inclement weather. Finally, I had a mobile base camp and could crash anywhere and get an awesome night’s sleep in a decent bed! Outdoor nirvana! It occurred to me that if people could rent one of these camper vans at a reasonable price that they probably would love to, however I discovered that adventure van rentals are nearly impossible to find and very expensive when you do find them. So I set out to re-purpose older Sprinter cargo vans into affordable and versatile adventure rigs for outdoor sports enthusiasts just like you. Now you too can have a mobile base camp! So get out there, stay out there and be comfortable! Founder – Micheal Jacobs

What is an Adventure Van?

Unlike an RV style van, an adventure van needs to support the gear intensive nature of an outdoor sport enthusiast. It’s an everything you need and nothing you don’t approach in order to preserve the space inside for most of your gear with the ability to support sleeping, cooking and general hanging out in comfort when mother nature doesn’t behave. The van is your mobile base camp providing a comfortable and secure environment when needed. These vans need good ground clearance and proper tires for snow and dirt. Don’t waste anybody’s time by not employing your hard labour.Now that you’ve already found your own unique thoughts, you want to bring those to life together with your writing. Consider an interest for this essay, such as child care and financing, if that’s something that interests you. A fantastic guideline to remember would be to always be specific, because you can’t go into depth using a generalization.It’s also a fantastic idea to write essay for me about a fantastic deal more than you could just about any specific issue.

I’ve been part of this class for two years and have had zero issues with this specific aspect of the course. It’s whatever you’ve been told to do; read on the guidebook, ask questions at every twist, and also don’t give up till you have a well-rounded feel of the course. It is definitely worth the time and energy.Certainly one of the greatest parts of the course is you will learn about the monetary areas of your area. I really don’t believe I could have gotten this far with no. Use it by presenting yourself as an expert and also be proud of the job you’ve done.

Why Mules?

To celebrate some of the rich history surrounding the animals that originally opened up access to the Sierra Nevada high country long before and even after automobiles were invented for travel. These awesome pack animals with interesting personalities made it possible for commercial organizations to thrive in the Sierras and allowed tourism to take hold laying the groundwork for many national and state parks systems to sustain themselves. The adventure vans are essentially doing exactly what the pack mules did which is to haul people and their gear into and out of the mountains and deserts in a dependable and cost effective way. Each classic Sprinter van is named after an actual Sierra mule which has some documented history behind it. <p/a>
