  1. Coping with loneliness & isolation can be tough when RV living. Life on the road can take a toll on your mental health if you are not careful. We've been taking steps to get comfortable with isolation. Here are our tips for you!We experienced some loneliness even before the mandated self-quarantine protocols due to corona virus. But the bright side is that has actually helped prepare us for this situation. We talk about everything from a good diet and exercise to maintaining a regular routine to protect our mental health. Most of all, a healthy dose of positivity and optimism is the best thing to have when feeling lonely. Hope you all enjoy this video and don't forget to subscribe!
  2. What is social distancing? RV living can be tough. Dealing with isolation while living in a RV can be even harder. After almost 6 days we decided to go out and explore with friends, while keeping our distance! Right now keeping our distance is very important to help stop the spread of COVID-19. It's completely changed the way we think, travel and live daily life. Heading out to the desert to explore, we talk about precautions we are taking to stay safe and avoid contact with others while still trying to maintain a bit of adventure. Hope you like the video and please SUBSCRIBE.
  3. Do you know about the abandoned Nazi camp in Los Angeles? It's called Murphy Ranch is a ranch built in a canyon near Los Angeles in the 1930s by anti-semitic sympathizers. Come along as we take the 4 mile hike into Rustic Canyon to explore the old ruins. The area has been covered with vibrant graffiti that almost makes the area feel like a walking art show. Some of the older buildings have been destroyed but there is still a lot intact. Enjoy the video and please subscribe.
  4. Hiking Southern California has always been a favorite past time of ours. In this video we head to the local Santa Monica Mountains to hike Boney Peak! We encounter rain, steep eroded trails and even get lost! While hiking in the Santa Monica Mountains near Newbury Park we come across some rough terrain. The trail ends up having some light climbing. With rain showers and even getting lost for a second, this is a video you will not want to miss. Dont forget to subscribe! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KSFxIBuLyE8&feature=youtu.be
  5. Manzanar Japanese Internment Camp is located in the Owens Valley just north of Lone Pine California. Rv living allows us to explore this country on our time and terms. Rounding out our long weekend in the Eastern Sierras we head over to Manzanar National Historic Site was once the home of over 10,000 Japaneses Americans that were rounded up during WW2. The museum has many exhibits, videos and recollections. This museum is full of history and leaves us a little uneasy. We hope you enjoy this video, please make sure you subscribe.
  6. The Eastern Sierra region of California is a special place. Home to places like Mount Whitney, Reward Mine and Alabama Hills, there multiple hot springs, high alpine peaks, and great fishing. In this video we show you why you need to go to this region of California. Camping at the base of the Eastern Sierras we drive up Whitney Portal road, Hike to the bottom of Reward Mine and even rescue a stuck Toyota pickup truck. Don't forget get to do your part and leave no trace. We cleaned up multiple bags of trash around the area. Hope you enjoy this video!
  7. Wow where has the time gone! The past year has been amazing but it was not without it's trials and tribulations. Rv Living is very rewarding but at the same time lot's of work. Rv Newbie? You should defiantly watch this video before you get into full-time RV Living. We have learned so much in the past year and thought it would be great to put all the information into one video. Talking about the highs & low's, the do's and don'ts and overall what Rv life is all about. Hopefully this video brings you some value, don't forget to SUBSCRIBE and turn on the notifications!
  8. 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.
  9. RV Bike storage solution! Over the past year we have had our fair share of struggles with our bike's, keeping them secure and in good working condition. Obviously it makes sense to store the bikes in the toy box out of the weather. Wrapping them in furniture pads to keep them protected. Removing the front tires saving valuable space. Also showing you my new to me Specialized Camber mountain bike. Mountain biking is a sport that I am trying to get back into after a couple years off. I take the bike out for it's maiden voyage on a local trail in Southern California. Hope you enjoy the video and find some value! Thanks for watching.
  10. 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!
  11. 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!
  12. 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.
  13. 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!
  14. 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!
  15. 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.
  16. We got a new rig! We are so excited, it took us a while to make a decision and we finally pulled the trigger, but we did it! Swapping rigs can be quite overwhelming, it's fairly similar to moving in a sticks and bricks but EVERYTHING eventually needs to find it's exact location! With this video we are trying to show you our feelings that came with our process. From getting rid of our original trailer and the memories. To the excitement, hard work, and joy! Please let us know your thoughts, have you switched rigs before?
  17. In this video we do a 6 Month recap of living in our RV full-time. There were highs and lows, many highlights and we learnt a lot. Stay tuned to see. 6 month update! We give a recap from our first 6 months of living in a RV full-time. There were highs and lows and memories made. We break the video into 3 categories. 3. Highlights. 2. Lessons learned. 1. Expectations vs reality. Make sure you stick around till the end. Hope you enjoy the video, let us know your thoughts down in the comments!
  18. Living in our RV (Fleetwood 35B) this summer we continue our adventure to Ouray via the Million Dollar Highway and take our Jeep ut yankee Boy basin.
  19. We are still DRIVING! From New York to South Dakota. Due to some work obligations in California, we need to be home by the end of August. Along the way, we encounter many thunderstorms, get some Starbucks and cheese (I know it's a strange combo). This is not your typical road tripping video! Melissa does jumping jacks to burn off some pent up energy and we enjoy delicious cheese "turds!!" ***Feel free to subscribe and hit that like button!*** https://www.youtube.com/c/adventureen...
  20. We start to make our huge push across the United States, we need to be in California by the end of the month, so that gives us roughly 3 weeks to make it from New Hampshire. We start out with some pretty crazy weather, we think we dodged a tornado but were not sure, stopping for some Dunkin Donuts. Eventually we end up camping at Walmart near Niagara Falls New York. The following day we ride our bikes to see the amazing waterfall. ***Feel free to subscribe and hit that like button!*** https://www.youtube.com/c/adventureen...
  21. It's ok, not to be ok, make sure you practice mental self care. RV Living is not all rainbows and sunshine, we have bad days just like everyone else. We discuss how it's hard work to be happy, sometimes you need to take a day for yourself and get yourself to a good head space. RV Living seems to be all fun and games from the outside looking in, but this is still daily life. We still have stressors just like you would in a traditional lifestyle. We go out for a BBQ lunch at Goody Coles Smokehouse in New Hampshire, which puts a smile on Mel's face. Afterwards we decided spending some time relaxing at the lake would be a good idea, so we went kayaking. Well we failed to check the weather and didn't realize a big storm was rolling in. Within 5 minutes of getting out on the water it starts to rain a bit. We still take our time, then the rain really hits and we decide to high tail it back to the dock! ***Feel free to subscribe and hit that like button!*** https://www.youtube.com/c/adventureen...
  22. We go kayaking at Pawtuckaway State Park, the entrance fee is only $5.00 per person at the gate, with excellent views, hikes and the lake there is so much to do. We bought our own kayaks, but they do have a marina where your can rent. Swimming, paddeling and cliff jumping made for a great day. After the great day on the lake, I make the one hour drive to Boston Logan International Airport to pick up Melissa. She flew back to California for a wedding and a bachlorette party roughly 12 days ago. We are very excited to see each other and she arrives with a mysterious bag. Stay tuned for new Vlogs, find out what she brought back from California. ***Feel free to subscribe and hit that like button!*** https://www.youtube.com/c/adventureen...
  23. Maine is beautiful, spending time at our families place in Jonesport Maine we admire the amazing cloud formations, head back to Acadia National Park. We do a very intense bike ride, and enjoy the Schoodic Peninsula portion of Acadia. You need to go to Acadia, we wonder why no one is talking about this National Park, Its a top 5 for me! We love our little RV Life, hopefully you enjoy this video!
  24. We watch the Sunrise on Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National park, also hike the scariest hike we have ever done, Beehive Trail in Acadia National Park. We use our Go Pro Hero 7 Black to capture amazing footage of a super intense hike that might be too challenging for many! Have a look and see what RV living and travel is all about!
