N O M A D // no. 7 | Jef F.
We only have so many summers so get out there and live.”
The towering rocks of Sedona were glowing red when the sun rose over the Verde River. The meandering rivers and endless red rock faces are what Jef (@jefalope) lives for. He’s the quintessential climber dirtbag / river rat, and a man of few words. He’s a leading guide for multi day backpacking in the Grand Canyon. He’s also a rafting guide for rivers all over the southwest, and in the off season, he picks up odd jobs from friends.
* “Guiding life takes me all over the country for work. My free time is spent heading to climb between seasonal work.”
Jef lives in his 50 square foot ’92 Ford Micro Schooly. For the uninitiated, that’s a converted short bus. He’s been living in it for nearly two years.
He told me the story of how this home on wheels came to be… and I’m paraphrasing here.
“It was when the Super Bowl came to Arizona. Bud Light made this party bus, so it had wrap around couches and a stripper pole in the middle. And of course Bud Light branding all over the exterior. They didn’t need it anymore after the game, I guess, and they made me an offer I couldn’t refuse.”
* I haven’t really had any hardships. Yet. You live in the elements every day. It just becomes natural. I guess saying good by to new friends along the way is the hardest part, but you usually see them at the next crag.”
