Support Crew Customizes Merrell/Zanfel Adventure Van
Merrell/Zanfel Adventure isn't just one of the most competitive adventure racing teams at Primal Quest, it's also got one of the best support crews at this epic expedition. Check out this photo I got of the interior of the Freightliner Metro cargo van in use by Merrell/Zanfel Adventure at PQ. When support crew member Jeff Akens picked up the van from the rental place in San Diego, it was empty. See those shelves on the right-hand side of the photo? Jeff built them. One trip to the Home Depot for two-by-fours and plywood, six hours of careful power tool work, and there you have it. Shelves by day, bunk beds by night. A place for everything, and everything in its place. And only ONE trip to the Home Depot for this project? I make a minimum of three for every attempt I make at being handy!
