Why do we call our camper van Ripley?
Well, its simple really. I have been avidly following the YouTube travels of Jorge and Jessica in their 1986 Volkswagen Vanagon Syncro for a while now.
They named their kick-butt beast Ripley, and although this serious 4WD adventure machine is on a totally different foodchain to our sedate Auto Trail FB… I see their journey and their passion as something to aspire to in many ways.
I have no idea if they named it after Sigourney Weaver’s character in the Alien movies…but I have totally stolen the name in homage to both.
Jorge and Jessica have been a little quiet of late, but if you are interested in the spirit of adventure travel, it is well worth putting aside a little time to explore their backstory here: Live Work Wander.
