Vanlife Diaries + The Van Project are partnering to host the first annual Teton Valley Vanlife Gathering. Ticket includes two nights camping at the beautiful Linn Canyon Ranch (1300 E 6000 S, Victor, ID 83455) in Teton Valley, Idaho, located just 30 miles (approx 45 min) from Jackson, WY, and under 2 hours from Yellowstone National Parks’ South entrance.
GET EXCITED! We’ve put together an amazing weekend gathering at the beautiful Linn Canyon Ranch, nestled in the spectacular Teton Mountain Range! (Scroll down for the full schedule of events!)
We’re SO PSYCHED at how this is event is coming together: LIVE MUSIC, VAN TOURS, sunrise photography, FREE morning yoga thanks to Shine Organics, and we’ve just announced a FREE LOCALLY SOURCED VEGETARIAN BBQ DINNER THANKS TO Kettle Brand and FREE BEER at the dinner thanks to Melvin Brewing!! Plus TONS OF OTHER FREEBIES (more below!).
You DON’T NEED A VAN TO ATTEND! Bring what you’ve got: tent, bike, car, van, skoolie (we’ve got a few signed up already!). As long as you’re able to boondock or off-grid camp you’re welcome! (we won’t have hook-ups and generators are not allowed). We will have access to potties though (always top of mind for us vanlifers!). This is a great chance to get some rig tours and inspiration for your upcoming adventure rig or tiny home build! THIS IS A PET-FRIENDLY and FAMILY-FRIENDLY event. The only requirement is that you have an open mind, enjoy alternative ways of living, and want to meet some interesting people.
Plus, we’re working with some ultra FABULOUS NON-PROFITS.
---We’re DONATING A PERCENTAGE OF TICKET SALES to the Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance for their Wildlife Crossing Initiative. They’ll be joining us to share more about their efforts in the Teton-area.
---This will be a LEAVE NO TRACE EVENT! LNT reps will be at the event all weekend to share tips, tricks, and run a fun little contest to see who has the most zero-trace campsite!
MASSIVE RAFFLE, including $650 WeBoost cell booster, 3 fly rod setups from WETFLY, Luci Lanterns, gear from Stanley, Leatherman, and Buck Knives, Be Kind Vibes shirts, a Low Tide Long Board deck (a company founded by fellow vandwellers), Cotopaxi, Scott James Sport Jewelry and more!
Since we didn’t write FREE enough above: The FIRST 100 folks to register will get a FREE buff (thanks to WETFLY) or a FREE pocketknife (thanks to Buck knives). Basically we’ve got a crazy amount of value and fun packed into this weekend (read: these tickets are A STEAL).
Location: Linn Canyon Ranch- we rented out the entire ranch, located in Victor, Idaho just 30 miles (45 min give or take-- we move slow in our rig ;-)) from Jackson and under 2 hours from Yellowstone National Park!
