So…Where’s Jay Today?


A16's full-time Van Life Ambassador and part-time Design Aficionado, Jay Golien, has embarked on a four-week Road Trip through Oregon.


His goal:

To work remotely – as though he were sitting right here in our office – while exploring new places, photographing strange landscapes and meeting weird / interesting people.


Why not?

If things get too weird, he can just drive off! Check back often for his latest adventure.

:: So… here we go again! The 6 week van-life trial of working from the road was a success, so I'm off again – this time to explore Oregon for 4 weeks.


This tour is all about mountain biking, hiking, fishing and becoming a bear whisperer. Enjoying the wild Oregon coast and growing my chin whiskers in the forest.


My plan is to drive Oregon’s PCH North to the Washington border. Turn East and check out Portland and Hood River. Head South to visit Bend and Crater Lake National Park. Maybe Mt. Shasta on my way back to San Diego.


You know the drill, take notes there might be an quiz for later!
