IS DARYL MARRIED?

In October 2004, fate brought Daryl and Angie together, marking the beginning of their enchanting love story. Their journey culminated in marriage in 2008, where they embraced the adventure of building a life together. The family grew in 2012 with the arrival of Cayden, adding more joy and love to their lives.

While Daryl and Cayden are avid enthusiasts of overlanding and off-roading, Angie has her own unique interests. Valuing her privacy, she doesn’t always join them on their outdoor adventures. However, she occasionally participates in select trips, especially those involving travel and camping, adding her own special touch to their shared experiences. Their relationship exemplifies the beauty of partnership, where each person’s strengths and interests complement the other, creating a harmonious balance in their life’s journey.

WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS

The pandemic’s impact on my work, leading to a slowdown on April 3, 2020, left me feeling agitated and teetering on the edge of PTSD or a nervous breakdown. In search of solace, Vancity Adventure was born out of our shared enthusiasm for outdoor adventures and video production. Each day was dedicated to refining our video skills and discovering new routes and trails to explore.

What ensued was beyond our wildest dreams. Hundreds of like-minded fans joined us, asking questions, and sharing their own experiences. Vancity Adventure transformed into something we never could have imagined, and we were overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and camaraderie.

We’re incredibly grateful to have you join us on this journey. Welcome to Vancity Adventure!

HOW DID YOU GET INTO YOUTUBE

Christmas 2019 marked a pivotal moment when I reached out to a DJ friend from my childhood for music for a Christmas parade we were participating in. To my surprise, he had transitioned from DJing to embracing Vanlife, documenting his journey on YouTube under the name Vancity Vanlife. Intrigued by his venture, we met up, and he introduced me to the world of YouTube content creation.

Inspired by our conversation, I decided to delve deeper into YouTube, despite primarily focusing on interviews on my existing channel. After discussing the idea with my supervisor, we embarked on our first filming project together in March 2020.

Little did we know, the onset of the pandemic would herald the birth of Vancity Adventure. As circumstances shifted and work slowed down, we seized the opportunity to channel our energy and passion into exploring the great outdoors and sharing our adventures with the world. And thus, Vancity Adventure was born—a testament to resilience, adaptability, and the power of seizing opportunities in times of uncertainty.

WHY DO YOU CALL YOURSELF VANCITY ADVENTURE

Vancity Adventure draws its inspiration from our hometown, Vancouver City, often affectionately referred to as “VANCITY” This vibrant urban center located on the West Coast of Canada, near Seattle, Washington State, is renowned for its breathtaking natural landscapes, dynamic cultural offerings, and abundance of thrilling outdoor activities. It’s this spirit of adventure and exploration inherent to Vancouver, combined with its stunning natural beauty and lively cultural scene, that inspired us to create Vancity Adventure.

 

DESIGN WORK

Ninety-five percent of the design work is crafted by me, drawing from my background as both an artist and a computer graphic artist. My artistic journey has adorned walls, graced magazine covers, and left its mark on numerous logos across various platforms. While I am the primary architect behind the creative process, I have collaborated with other artists on occasion to infuse fresh perspectives into my work. This blend of artistic prowess and collaborative spirit ensures that every project undertaken by Vancity Adventure resonates with creativity, innovation, and visual excellence.

WHY DO YOU TRAVEL WITH YOUR SON AND DOG

Indeed, the essence of these adventures is beautifully simple yet profoundly impactful. They offer a multifaceted experience encompassing bonding, education, storytelling, and valuable lessons for others to glean from. These adventures provide a unique form of stimulation that nurtures personal growth and fosters connections.

Most importantly, they serve as a remarkable bonding experience between my son and me, strengthening our relationship and creating cherished memories that will last a lifetime. And having Tosha, our loyal canine companion, along for the journey adds an extra layer of joy and companionship. Indeed, dogs truly make the very best travel companions, enriching our adventures with their unwavering loyalty and boundless enthusiasm.

DO YOU USE A DRONE

Our journey with drones began with a small, inexpensive model, which unfortunately met its fate while filming a waterfall on one of our adventures. Undeterred, we embarked on a new chapter by conducting extensive research and investing in the DJI Mavic Air 2 drone—a decision we haven’t regretted.

Navigating the Canadian regulations, we ensured compliance by obtaining the necessary pilot license for drones weighing over 250g. As licensed drone pilots, we embrace the responsibility that comes with capturing breathtaking aerial footage of our adventures. From majestic landscapes to thrilling expeditions, our drone adds a unique perspective to our storytelling, enriching the experiences we share with our audience.

WHOS TRUCK IS IT

The truck leading our adventures belongs to me, proudly adorned with my company logo and information until February 2023. Alongside it, I also owned another truck that bore a striking resemblance, albeit with distinct features such as a rack on the back, a different grill and lights, and being a 2005 Dodge Ram. While the latter was part of our fleet, it was typically driven by others as I primarily drove the former.

The images below capture my truck as it appeared in 2008 and then in 2020, before embarking on the exhilarating journey that became known as Vancity Adventure. This snapshot serves as a nostalgic reminder of the transformation our vehicle underwent as we ventured into the realm of epic exploration that we are now in today.
