  1. This is one of our main reasons for RV living! Renting out our house and going full time saves us a lot of money on a monthly basis, which allows us to do more activities we love! Heading up to our family cabin in Kernville, California, we get ready to hit the slopes! Just 20 minutes up the road from Wofford Heights is a small ski mountain know as Shirley Meadows or by it's official name, Alta Sierra. It has just two ski lifts and roughly 10 runs. They only open the slopes when they get enough fresh snow, so you'll have to time your skiing experience just right with the winter weather! This is California Snowboarding at it's finest, cheap lift tickets, and bluebird day with no lines!
  2. In this video we explore Santa Barbara, California. Come along as we visit a great Atlas Obscura find, Knapp's Castle, then a giant fig tree, and finally bike along the Pacific Ocean. Our first stop is Knapp's Castle located in the Santa Barbara mountains, is an old ruin site. Rebuilding has started so make sure you get up there soon! We believe it will be a private residence soon. Stopping at the Santa Barbara train station to park the truck, we have a closer look at the Giant Fig tree that was planted many years ago. It's definitely a site to see. The hopping on the bikes after almost 5 months to cruise the boardwalk, is was a great day hope you enjoy the video!
  3. Continuing to explore the open desert we head over to Burro Schmidt Tunnel in the Mojave Desert. Carved all by hand taking over 33 years, this tunnel goes all the way through a mountain. We enter the tunnel and show you what it's like on the inside and all the way through. On this adventure I have gotten pretty good at crashing our drone and Melissa finds a unique use for the GoPro. After spending a good amount of time exploring around the tunnel we cut back across the desert. Attempting to find another mine but the road conditions wouldn't cooperate.
  4. Dogs love RV Living also! Traveling with dogs can be difficult. But they get to be with you even more while discovering new sniffs, places and sticks to chew on! There are some things to consider. We finally introduce you to our two dogs Blue and Zamboni. Going into their back stories, likes and dislikes. Towards the end of the video (Time Stamps)we go over pros and cons of RVing with pets. Boondocking, BLM and general camping with your pets and what to be aware of. Hope you enjoy our super cute pups! We absolutely love them.
  5. We are back in the snow! New Years weekend takes us out into a snowy winter wonderland once again. Come along as we put the tow rig to the test as we hit some slushy 4x4 trails. Out in the California desert once again, to do some offroading in the snow and mud. California RV travel in snowy weather can make for difficult traffic conditions! We meet up with a friend to go exploring but the trail conditions throw us for a loop.
  6. This video is slightly different from our others! Hopefully that doesn't scare you guys away. RV Life can be difficult and sometimes we need a break. Come along as we take a trip away from the RV. The toy hauler might not be with us but this video is a trip!
  7. It's finally here, winter wonderland snow camping In California. This past Thanksgiving we went out desert camping with friends. We didn't realize a huge winter storm was rolling in to Southern California. That didn't stop the fun, this video has all sorts of off roading, prerunning, delicious meats and snow mageddon! It was unexpected but we had a great time and made the best of it. This is a memory with friends that we will never forget.
  8. We are in Barstow California for the annual desert clean up and prerunning! this is an amazing event where overlanders, campers and outdoor enthusiasts get together and clean a local desert. It's a great event, the desert community gets together with many sponsors. They provide, all the cleaning supplies, dumpsters, t-shirts and event a huge raffle. We went out with the toy hauler, filled the truck with trash and watched some trucks jump. Hopefully this catches on!
  9. In this video we are sharing some knowledge. If you like to tow your 5th wheel or travel trailer and still off-road, prerun, or 4x4, this might be helpful! We install Daystar airbag cradles, this cool system allows your truck or SUV to have full suspension travel and still tow heavy loads. We had previously ripped out one of our airbags due to the airbag limiting our droop travel. Now that issue is solved and we can still tow heavy loads. If you have any questiong please let us know!
  10. Well we left our trailer behind! This video is slightly different, as we take a weekend trip with out our trailer. Headed up to Sequoia National Forest and the Trail of 100 Giants. My parents have had a cabin up in Wofford Heights California for quite a while now and we decided it would make for a great get away. What do you do to get out of your trailer? Do you feel the need to change it up? The Trail of 100 Giants is an absolutely amazing place. There is a small parking lot and in November it was quite busy. For a $5.00 fee you can park, use the toilets and walk the well maintained paved path.
  11. Here we have a little how to video! I am by no means a mechanic, Ill show you my process for the "preform maintenance" light on my 2016 RAM 2500 Cummins turbo diesel. In my opinion it's a fairly simple job, with the research and information provided you can do this service yourself. Saving you a large sum of money, between $350.00-750.00. This project took me roughly 35 minutes and that's with filming. The filter costs $54.00 (linked below), please let me know in the comments if you have any questions!
  12. This video is action packed! RV Living at it's finest, boondocking with friends, beautiful California desert and Prerunning. There's a little bit of everything in this one. We even break our truck! This video is about our journey to meet up with friends at their annual desert trip, Desert Palooza 2019. This event has been going strong for 15 years, out in Jawbone Canyon CA. Along with all of that we show your one of our tips for fueling up with a large rig, give a few more details on our Grill that so many people keep asking about and of course we take you along for the ride while we go desert prerunning. Hope you enjoy the video!
  13. Come along as we explore a few different areas along the 395 HWY in California. Rv living allows us the freedom to travel where ever our hearts, by simply following the weather and maintaining a strong cellular signal. While camping north of Bishop California we head into town to explore there small shops and grab some coffee. The following day we wake up pretty early to make the trek north up the 395 to Ruby Lake Trail Head. The hike ends up being a perfect day hike in an extremely beautiful area. On our drive back to camp/home we decide to hitch up and head south back to Fossil Falls for the night. They have a small campsite that is VERY primitive, but only $6 a night.
  14. We go through our process to finding a free camping. We have been doing this for many years, so for us this seems like a simple thing but we realize there is a lot of information out there. From selecting your state and region. To different land use, apps, and websites that can help you along the way. The point of this video is so that you can learn the process, learn the rules of the land you are camping on and also learn potential hazards/dangers that you could run into. Like driving a 38 foot Toy hauler down a dirt road! Hopefully this brings a good amount of value to you. Thanks for watching!
  15. After having issues with our 5th wheel contacting our trailer we starting looking into all options. The Andersen Ultimate Connection kept catching our eye, this hitch is lighter and stronger than ever! Weighing in at 35 lbs it makes the removal process simple and helps with our payload. With this installation I filmed as much detail as I could while also getting the job done. This hitch helps solve the problem short bed truck owners face, the base pushes the hitching point back 4 inches. Then when you install the coupler depending on your setup and configuration you can gain another 4 inches. We gained 8 inches of clearance, and that has been enough for us. Towing has been great! Let us know your thoughts!
