SAN DIEGO, Aug. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Van life is a cultural phenomenon. The flexible schedule and freedom provided by a home on wheels has inspired travelers around the globe to take control of their next destination. LifeProof announces Roadside Distractions, a high-energy road trip with seasoned storytellers Catherine Aeppel and Jennifer Yih beginning Aug. 16.
The trip commences in Colorado as the duo heads east to uncover the hidden wonders of the eastern United States in a custom-built van. Their journey will cover more than 20 states as they seek out the best places to skate, bike, hike, backpack, surf and more.
Aeppel is an adventure photographer and filmmaker based in Colorado. From the beaches of Israel to the slot canyons of Utah, remote islands in the Pacific to the far reaches of Western Australia, Aeppel's visual explorations have taken her around the world. She thrives with a camera in hand and lives the adventures she captures.
Yih is a producer and storyteller based in the heart of Portland. She believes the only stories worth telling are the ones experienced firsthand. Her international upbringing has taken her around the globe, from surfing the beaches of Brazil to seeking secluded islands in Indonesia.
LifeProof phone cases and AQUAPHONICS Bluetooth speakers enable travelers, adventure seekers and van lifers alike to make the most of every journey with a soundtrack to match. Aeppel and Yih will put LifeProof products to the test on a daily basis and use them to tell the stories behind their adventure.
Fans can follow along with #RoadsideDistractions thanks to the Verizon network, the official wireless provider for the tour. The van is also outfitted with HumX by Verizon to provide a mobile Wi-Fi hot spot, vehicle diagnostics, roadside assistance and more.
The living space was designed and installed by Opt Overland of Fort Collins, Colo. The shop specializes in overland vehicle design and custom installations.
