WinnebaGoLife Adds Damon Bungard to List of Expert Contributors

FOREST CITY, IA--(Marketwired - August 18, 2015) - WinnebaGoLife has announced that avid outdoorsman, Damon Bungard, is a new contributor to the lifestyle blog website.

Known for having a kayak, fly rod, camera, bow, or hunting rifle on hand, exploring the rivers and mountains of the world keeps Bungard on the move and in search of his next adventure.

Taking Bungard and his wife, Ashley, to their adventures throughout North America will be a Winnebago Touring Coach Travato.

“The Travato appealed to us as a mobile ‘base-camp,’ mobile office for Ashley, and a great tool to let us travel, work, and share experiences together,” said Bungard. “We wanted something very compact, but with the full functionality the Travato provides -- full bed, functional bath and shower, kitchen, fridge, water systems, a work desk area, good gas mileage and internal and external gear storage options.”

Growing up as a military dependent, travel and exploration is in Bungard’s DNA. He has traveled from Chile to the ends of North America in search of the next rapid to run, river to explore, fish to catch, game to hunt and memory to make. As product manager for Jackson Kayak and Brand Manager for Orion Coolers, the Bungards make their home near the Jackson Kayak factory in Spencer, Tennessee.

The Bungards will be sharing outdoor equipment that works well in the Travato, healthy recipes and fishing and experiences from hunting excursions on WinnebaGoLife.

“If you’re looking for a perfect RV pairing, outdoor adventurer Damon Bungard and his Travato are it,” said WinnebaGoLife Editor, Don Cohen. “Being a fly fisherman myself, and looking at Damon’s great trout catches, certainly gets me longing for finding that perfect streamside location where a comfortable bed, and cold drinks in the fridge, are waiting for you after a fun day on the water. It doesn’t get any better.”

WinnebaGoLife features videos, articles and photos that capture the RV lifestyle. It is produced by Winnebago Industries, Inc., (NYSE: WGO), a leading United States (U.S.) recreation vehicle manufacturer.
