6 Months of Summer was filmed during a 6 month roadtrip in The USA during the Summer of 2014, when myself and best mate Rory bought a 1984 Camper Van for worryingly cheap, and set out with no plan and very little money, just to see what would happen. We wanted to break away from the mundane day-to-day of what some may consider a “normal” lifestyle, and didn’t worry about what could go wrong, but rather, what might go right?

The music in this series has been meticulously handpicked to ensure that only the most beautiful and soulful vibrations meet your eardrums.

Part 1:

We start our journey in Colorado, and Part 1 features some beautiful scenery (and snow!) high up in the mountains, a run-in with the police (who encourage us to drink-drive), some 60-foot-high cliff jumping, us using a dam’s drainage chute as a water slide, and some super gnarly vert skating!

Part 2:

In Part 2 of 6 Months of Summer, we visit a strange, timeless land covered in enormous rocks and 100ft natural archways, get very excited about our first wash in 10 days, and Ben stands on his head in 4 different states…

Part 3:

In this episode, we unravel some unexplained ancient mysteries and discover just how The Grand Canyon was formed, the desert burns us to a crisp in Las Vegas, and we reclaim our minds in the Pacific beaches of California…

Part 4:

In Part 4 we lap up summertime in the city and explore LA and its beaches, it all goes a bit tits up when our gypsy lifestyle and the state of Jill reaches situation critical, we get deep during a sunset drive, and I’ve made a special timelapse with a view over the whole San Francisco Bay Area…

Part 5:

In Part 5, the amount of downtime and lack of purpose starts to send Rory into some bizarre behaviours, we check out some crystal lakes in Tahoe, fashion a water-pistol out of the windscreen wipers and test it on the pedestrians of Yosemite, go fast in 6 Flags, and find out where our souls will spend eternity…

Part 6:

6 Months living together on the road in a confined space starts to take its toll on our sanity (even more so!), and in the final part of our journey we leave sunny California and head up into Oregon where the trees start to turn amber, and Jill’s rain-resistance is tested as Autumn starts to set in. Our 6 Months of Summer is drawing to an end…
