Homer snowboarder builds camper for competitions

ANCHORAGE (KTUU) - Homer native and snowboarder Davey Baird is thrilled he gets to follow his passion of being a professional snowboarder.

"Just being out in the mountains, playing in the snow," Baird said with a grin. "Discovering new friends that love doing the same thing. Being able to, now, essentially, travel the world and do what I love."

This past season, he traveled in style.

Baird built a camper that he drove to many of his competitions this season.

The camper, which he built by hand, has a stove, battery-powered lights, plenty of storage and a bed.

Baird said it took him about a month to build and says it has made being on the road feel a little like home.
