Drew Simms has become very popular on YouTube (with some videos reaching over 3,000,000 people) thanks to stunning production, epic adventures, amazing storytelling, and, of course, a badass go-anywhere rig. His recent “Snow Storm” has already been viewed over 600,000 times and provides a fascinating insight into living in a compact 4WD vehicle during wintertime.
From Jacksonville, Florida, Drew has been travelling the US (clocking over 18,000 miles in one six-month period) and has lived out of his 2012 Jeep Wrangler since graduating college. He explains that this lifestyle is “in pursuit of becoming a professional travel, lifestyle, and landscape photographer.” If you’re not familiar with his photography, I strongly recommend checking out drewsimms.com or his Instagram, as his work is outstanding.
On a recent trip, he spent three days snow camping in Central Oregon and battled over 2 feet of snow and temperatures as low as 15°F. As always, the visual storytelling is breathtaking and completely immerses you in the narrative, while the relaxed soundtrack and campfire cooking provide a cathartic viewing experience. I gravitate to Drew’s channel because I find it’s a much-needed escape from daily life and the perfect way to switch off after a busy day.
