Professional climber Alex Johnson grew up in the competitive climbing scene. She became the Youth Climbing National Champion at age 12, Adult National Champion at age 13, and won a silver medal at the Youth World Championships at 14. Eventually, after a long successful competitive career, she decided to focus more on outdoor projects. Spending weeks living out of her car to climb in certain areas became less and less ideal. That’s when she went in search of something else.
Alex soon found “Bessie”, the 1962 Red Dale trailer decked out to look like a 1950’s diner. They’ve had a fairly rocky relationship, but overall they have been there for each other. During their time together Bessie has had a few mishaps, she’s has been blown over, stolen, repurchased, and invaded by a squatter, his crack pipe, and a number of other “items” that we won’t mention here.
Alex and Bessie’s time together has been interesting, but that’s what makes life interesting. The trailer has two Boulder 90 Solar Panels mounted to the top with a Yeti 1250 inside to power all of her trips. For more info on Alex and what she’s up to check out http://www.alexjohnsonclimbing.com
