  1. A typical RV travel day! We have some minor issues which remind us full time RV living is not always fun. Moving day in an RV is when you find out what is broken, or you actually break something else! In this video we are on the move again! With many states beginning to lift stay-at-home orders, more places are starting to open up so we decide to seek cooler weather. Finally leaving Flagstaff Arizona, we head north towards Page, Arizona and eventually make it to Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah. We break our camera before we even take off but we make the best of it with fun stops along the way. We hope you like this video. Please don't forget to subscribe!
  2. Off roading our tow rig is one of our favorite past times! Camping near the Cinder Hills OHV area, we head out for a weekend trail ride. Flagstaff Arizona is a great area if you love full time RV living! Cinder Hills OHV area is just outside Flagstaff, AZ. There are many volcanic cinder cones and craters in the area, including Sunset Crater National Monument. The combination of ponderosa pine forest and volcanic sand dunes make the area incredibly unique and like nothing we have seen before. Our tow rig is built for this, with aftermarket Carli suspension, King shocks and 35" tires. It just keeps on ticking!. Hopefully you enjoy the video and don't forget to subscribe!
  3. We hit some trails while boondocking near Flagstaff, Arizona. Making sure to keep our distance from friends, we head to a nearby 4x4 trail and end up finding more than we thought! This is full time RV living at it's best! Once again we find ourselves in the snow, but that's OK with us! Being from sunny Southern California, snow is a welcomed occurrence! We also come across another giant pile of trash in the middle of the forest. Of course we couldn't just leave it there, so we load it up and take another load of trash to the dump! We hope you enjoy this video. Please be sure to subscribe.
  4. This is RV living on our Adventure Endeavor! Travel days are typically a fun day, but moving can be a bit stressful unless you plan ahead. We try to scout out camp locations, dump stations and cell signal. Planning is key to an easy RV moving day. Traveling is a lot of fun but certain parts can be stressful, so we try to skip the stress and do a little advanced homework when possible. This includes scouting out our new potential camp location. Check the road conditions, entries, and exits in boondocking locations. Make sure there is an easy(ish) plan for dumping and filling the rig. And of course check the cellular signals before arriving with the whole rig! We hope you enjoy this video and get some great value out of it! Don't forget to subscribe!
  5. LEAVE NO TRACE. Dispersed camping and RV living go hand in hand. We do our best to keep our public lands clean. Hopefully you find this video inspiring and share it with your friends. While boondocking just outside Flagstaff, Arizona we start to realize there are large amounts of trash dumped in the surrounding area. On a daily basis we pick up what we can and throw it away when we venture in to the local grocery store. But we find ourselves wanting to clean up even more so we contact the local ranger station to ask if we can bring in a big load of trash and use their dumpsters.
  6. Hiking in Sedona, AZ is just what we needed to get us out of the RV for a few hours. Fulltime RV living allows us to hike in incredible new locations. We are Adventure Endeavor, thanks for tuning in! While hunkering down near Flagstaff, Arizona we decide to head a bit South to warmer weather and go for a day hike. We decide on Mount Wilson because this trail offers unparalleled views of Sedona and the red rocks. It's a 10 mile out and back hike from Midgley Bridge. Thanks for coming along, we hope you enjoy this video. Don't forget to subscribe!
  7. We needed to get outside! While self isolating at our new spot in Flagstaff Arizona we decided to take a day trip drive to Sycamore Canyon. RV living has been great, but we needed a break from the trailer and Netflix. While dispersed camping near Flagstaff Arizona has been great, getting outside has been essential. After filling our water, dumping our tanks and loading up on groceries we were ready for another 2 weeks of social isolation. deciding to get out and explore the area we take a drive to Sycamore Canyon, the second largest canyon in Arizona. Obviously second to the Grand Canyon. It's a wild wet time, many muddy roads and a couple water crossings to get there. Later in the day the weather turns on us while exploring JD Cabin near White Horse Lake. We hope you enjoy this video and are staying safe during these tough times. Don't forget to subscribe!
  8. RV solar! We finally installed solar panels on our toy hauler. Full time RV living is so much easier with solar. It's definitely not cheap but is a great investment, especially if you love boondocking.If you have been watching the channel for a while you know that we had a solar system installed on our last rig (Keystone Cougar). We swapped rigs over the summer and acquired a toy hauler with a built-in Cummins Onan 5500 generator. This has made it possible for us to boondock without solar and save up money for our full solar install. In the video we talk about lithium vs lead acid batteries, where we went to get the panels installed, and show you all the basics of our system. Hope you enjoy and please don't forget to SUBSCRIBE!
  9. On our way to meet up with some fellow Xscapers we stop off at Truck Haven for some shut eye. The next day we find some free camping near Yuma Arizona, American Girl Mine to be exact. RVing is more fun with friends! A few weeks ago we met Jill and Curt at the Xscapers annual bash. Instantly being connected through off roading, they invited us down to boondock near American Girl Mine just north west of Yuma Arizona. Over the the next few days we did some exploring, off roading and smoked some delicious meats together. We also go to the valley of the names and drive to the bottom of American Girl mine, this is a fun one! Hope you enjoy!
  10. At the Xscapers annual Bash 2020 we took our full size RAM on a jeep trail. We joined fellow Xscapers to hit Redline jeep trail. The tow rig did pretty well and everyone was glad to have us along. This was such an amazing way to jump right into meeting new people at the Xscapers Bash. Our tow rig has been highly modified for towing and off road performance, rock sliders, extra shocks and larger all terrain tires. This trail pushed us to the limit though, trying a couple different bonus lines we ended up needing a small tow strap tug! Everyone on the trail was great and happy to watch us give it a try. Looks like we might need new bumpers though.......we received some minor carnage. Hope you enjoy the video!
  11. Xscapers is a group within the Escapees RV Club, geared towards newer generations of RVers. Dry camping at Xscapers Annual Bash was amazing. This was our first event and it did not disappoint. Xscapers is a diverse community with active, adventurous RVers, that work while on the road full or part time! Located in Lake Havasu Arizona the annual bash is the largest event they do all year. Almost 400 RVs and 700 people converge to share laughs, gain knowledge, make friends and memories. This event (our first) is packed with fun activities such a boot camps, hiking, concerts, Olympics and seminars. This is a brief video of what to expect at the event. Hope you enjoy and if you haven't joined the club, you don't know what you are missing.
  12. We are having more fun on the water. Jet skiing, paddle boarding and picking up floating river trash! Pirate Cove Resort is pretty amazing they have everything you could ask for. If you hang around till the end of this video you can see the amazing sunsets the area has to offer. We also give a quick resort summary/ review! Our thoughts on the place, let us know if you have any questions! Hope you enjoy the video!
  13. ✪✪✪In this video✪✪✪ We head to the Colorado River with friends for a long hot weekend. This is a family trip that our friends do every year and we happen to keep getting invited! While we were there the temperatures were ranging from 100-120 degrees! It's safe to say that we had to get a little creative considering that our trailer only has one A/C unit. This video has so much fun packed in, boating, volleyball, swimming and much more.↩ Also stick around till the very end, we save a Prius! From a sand pit, our friends took a wrong turn at night. We ended up going on a rescue mission! Hope you enjoy the video!

  15. So I'll be honest with y'all... I'm a newbie to RVing, a newbie to full-timing, AND even a newbie to towing a travel trailer (or towing anything at all really! yeah, I know, gasp!)... but I'll be doing ALL THREE in about 4 weeks. I went through RV Online University already, and I'm graduating from Escapees Bootcamp tomorrow at the Escapade in Sedalia, among other classes I've completed, so I think I've done as much video and word-of-mouth and classroom educating myself as I can at this point (and I do have an in-person driving class tentatively scheduled for my trailer pick-up date too). However, there are several very specific electrical and security-related mods that I want done to my travel trailer (it's a tiny econo-20-footer, FYI), and I am looking for recommendations from people who have had mobile RV tech work done in Arizona and can vouch for the both the trustworthiness of the tech and the quality of the work they had done. As a solo female, I really find it critical to educate myself ahead of time and get as many recommendations as I possibly can, never really taking the first, second, or even 13th person's word on anything... because... I mean... it's a wild world out there (even if you aren't Cat Stevens). And traditionally, I was never the used-car-dealership-savvy-type, if that says anything about my vehicle acumen. I didn't even know it was possible to negotiate the price of the very first USED car I bought (as a lowly Air Force enlistee). So I just paid them what they asked. Yeah, I know... cringe, cringe, cringe! And yeah, I do know a *bit* more now. I know enough to be skeptical of everything, at least. But I also know that there are some really good people in this group. So please, help a girl out if you can? So to be honest, the potentially most expensive mobile tech work I'm looking to get done (and I don't have an unlimited budget) include: a solar panel array (160 watt x 3) + inverter (3000 watt pure sine) + replacement battery bank (200-300 Ah lithium ion bank) install (and making sure that the wiring is compatible with all of the existing appliances) so I'd need someone who can do all of that... on a 20-foot travel trailer (roof space is at a premium, but I really don't want to do portable/foldables, and I think the 3 160s would fit, even if with brackets to raise them above some of the roof structures/appliances). Also... a smaller matter... but an RV-specializing locksmith... I want to put a deadbolt on my door, among a few other security-related things. Any recommendations in that regard, whether in AZ (maybe near Tucson or Phoenix)... or even better, in Indiana near Nappanee, would be great! Thanks for reading! Any constructive comments are much appreciated!

  20. I'm curious if anyone has ever had issues boondocking along I-8 near Gila Bend or around Ajo, AZ. We pulled over onto state land/BLM area last night and within an hour a BLM ranger came by to warn us that it's a drug trafficking area, that we may see people wandering through at night and they might even approach our RV. Then he says "And I hope you have a big gun with you too." Then I asked, "Well would you consider Ajo to be just as dangerous?" and he says "Without a doubt." Knowing that many SKPs go there (and we have too), at that point I realized he might have been slightly overstating the risk. We've stayed in Southern AZ & TX areas with signs warning about illegal activity and never had an issue before. Just wondering if anything has changed recently?
  21. We are new to RV'ing and we are looking to Havasu Falls RV Resort for our first trip over Christmas. Has anyone been there? Would you recommend it? What was your experience?
  22. The Best of Tucson HOP March 24, 2017 After a busy week at Escapade, you might like to take a relaxing HOP or two. Let us do the driving, while you can sit back, relax and enjoy! HOPs are fun and exciting, especially when shared with your fellow SKP friends. Board a luxury coach with a local tour guide and enjoy the scenic view of the beautiful countryside, the mountains, the deserts, while learning about the rich western heritage of Tucson. On this excursion, we will: · Enjoy a scenic drive through the Tucson Mountain Park, a part of the beautiful Sonoran Desert, to visit the Old Tucson Film Studios. These studios are a re-creation of an old 1880s western town, built by Columbia studios. John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara movies were shot there, as well as other western movies and TV shows. We’ll watch gun fights, see live shows in the Grand Palace and stroll through the movie museum and a native village. Ride on the Old Tucson train. We will also have a guided walking tour, along with many other fun activities and attractions, as we learn the fascinating history of the Old American West. · Bring comfortable walking shoes and enjoy the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. This includes a 98-acre zoo that was founded to help promote conservation. Housed there, are over 200 native mammals, reptiles, amphibian, insects, and birds including several species of hummingbirds. It also has an aquarium, botanical garden, natural history museum and an art gallery. · The beautiful Mission San Xavier del Bac, also known as “The White Dove of the Desert”, was built in the 1700s. It was founded as a Catholic mission and is a National Historic Landmark. The mission is considered to be one of the finest examples of the Spanish Colonial architecture. Schedule is subject to change. There will be a considerable amount of walking, so please bring comfortable walking shoes, binoculars, a hat, sunscreen, as well as a camera for those breathtaking photo ops. Note: Non-Escapees members are welcome to attend, too! There is a $50.00 charge for non-members. However, if you join Escapees, the $50.00 will be waived.

  24. I don't know that this is the right place for this but...... I have temporarily un-retired and accepted a nine month assignment in Nogales, AZ and am looking for an RV site to be based out of starting in August. The budget is fairly open as the company offered to rent us a furnished apartment or home in lieu of staying in our RV home. We are looking for a place within 30 minutes of Nogales, with full hook-ups, with opportunities for decent walks/hikes nearby, that is friendly, and that is okay with us having a 26 lb dog. We would prefer to be away from I-19 if possible, but that is not a requirement. Patagonia, Mountain View, and De Anza are on the radar and will be visited this weekend. Does anyone know of anything else in the area that we should look at? An RV park or on a ranch would be ok....maybe even a fairgrounds. We appreciate any help we can get. Thanks.
  25. I posted an article yesterday about where I should boondock at Quartzsite and haven't got any feedback yet, so I thought you kind folks might be able to help me out this morning. We're on our way to Quartzsite later today to boondock for at least a week to 10 days. The long-term travel spots are still considered "in season" till April 15, meaning we'd have to pay $40 for a spot with a dump station. Or we can camp out at one of the free BLM properties and come into town every few days to dump at the RV Pit Stop, which costs $15 + costs for water. Any recommendations on which I should choose and any specific sites in particular? Thanks in advance! Young Fulltimers
