  1. In this full time RV living travel vlog we are finally back on the road as fulltime RVers. Spending the summer in Southern California with friends and family we are excited to hit the road. Our remote jobs allow us to hit the road in our 5th wheel. Heading towards Arizona for one last family get together we stop off at Barstow CA not even long enough to bother unhitching our fifth wheel toyhauler. Then we arrive at Pirate's Cove Resort and Marina where we have the luxury of a full hook up RV site. Living out of an RV fulltime has allowed us to travel all over the country, come along as we get back on the road.
  2. As we go dispersed camping on BLM land we decide to discuss our thoughts on car camping vs RV living. Both methods of camping have their own pros and cons. Overlanding camping (car camping) is great because it allows you to get off the beaten path on to offroad trails and more remote camping locations. RV camping allows you to bring everything with you, we have been on the road fulltime for over 1.5 years and absolutely love it. While most fulltime RVers opt for RV parks and campgrounds there is another option. That is boondocking, probably the closest you can get to off grid with your motorhome or travel trailer. We hope you enjoy this vlog. Don't forget to subscribe! https://youtu.be/wKKIiXlXz7c
  3. Just like the title says, we got kicked out of a National Forest! We had been RV boondocking in Southern California when a forest ranger arrived and told us to leave! In this video, we describe how we were approached while boondocking. Free camping is an awesome way to get outside but sometimes unexpected things can happen. Due to some recent fires in Southern California, the state closed a few National Forests for safety reasons. Unfortunately, we were boondocking in one of them! This is what we encountered while boondocking in California in our fifth wheel. Please make sure you subscribe! https://youtu.be/QHyCJCsLMGY
  4. This travel vlog has a little bit of everything. RVing in a dispersed camping area often brings unwanted critters. We finally catch a mouse in our fifth wheel and have an eventful travel day. The day starts off with an unwanted mouse in our fifth wheel. We try to keep a clean and secure house but they still find a way in. Then it's time to move on, stopping at an RV dump station along the way. We provide some tips when dumping your RV and filling your freshwater. Picking a VERY remote RV boondocking location might have been a bad idea, when we arrive the spot is taken! We hope you enjoy the video. Please don't forget to SUBSCRIBE!
  5. This is the story of how we began RVing. As survivors of the Las Vegas mass shooting, mental health awareness was crucial in our process of overcoming PTSD & transitioning from weekend warriors to full-time RVers. While hiking near Mammoth Lakes California we discuss what drives us to be physically active and the everyday decisions that positively affect our lives. We talk about going to therapy for PTSD, hiking, being in nature, and how RV life can have both positive and negative effects on mental health. Life is all about choices, we have chosen to be happy and make positive choices to better our lives on a daily basis. We hope this video helps someone who is struggling out there.
  6. In this video, we take our tow rig offroad. Our Ram 2500 was originally bought and built for Overlanding. Over the past year, it's been towing our 5th wheel toy hauler all around America. This is full time RV living! About 1.5 years ago we took the leap and decided to start living our lives differently. Bought a fifth wheel and hit the open road, our Ram was originally built with a different purpose in mind. Overall it does great in both fields. Come along as we hit the 395 HWY and do some 4x4 in the Eastern Sierras. We really hope you enjoy the journey, don't forget to subscribe! https://youtu.be/I4of_vAjCi4
  7. We are on a California getaway! Located in the Owens Valley beside HWY 395, Mono Lake is a strange sight to see. Mono Lake, one of the oldest lakes in North America, is famous for its tufa and bird watching. In this travel vlog, we take you to Mono Lake California within the northernmost district of Inyo National Forest. The Eastern Sierras house many incredible sights to see. We start out at the boardwalk on the northern side of the lake. Then we head over to Mono Basin National Forest Scenic Visitor center, eventually ending up on the shores of Mono Lake at Mono Lake Tufa State Natural Reserve. We really hope you enjoy the video, don't forget to subscribe.
  8. Tubing might be our favorite summer activity! We escaped the extreme So Cal heat by floating the upper Kern River. This river can be dangerous if you're not careful. Follow our recommendations for a safer float! Do your homework before by knowing the current flow of the river, and bring a spare raft and a paddle too! We like to float in either August or September, when the water is low and slow. 🛶 We hope you enjoy the video, don't forget to subscribe on YouTube! https://youtu.be/0Bw8sI4ra8k
  9. This is not normal! Normally RV life allows us to RV America at our own pace. In this video, we make a long drive with our fifth wheel toy hauler from Jackson Wyoming all the way to Southern California. Towing an RV long distance can be daunting. While making the tedious haul we decide to share some simple tips and tricks for making RV travel days better. There is no right and wrong when it comes to travel days. We hope these small tips are useful and you enjoy the video. Like always please make sure you SUBSCRIBE and hit that like button, it really helps us out!
  10. In these crazy times, more people focus on living intentionally. With the growth of online-based jobs, it's easier to become a digital nomad and live minimally. Is van life the solution? Join us on this tour! In this video, we do our first ever van tour, with our good friends Rebecca and Dylan. They hit the road a few months ago with the intention of rock climbing daily and living simply out of their converted van. Purchasing a 2020 Ford 350 for the purpose of a van conversion, they hired Patavans in Boulder, Colorado to build out their van and allow them to focus on the simple things in life! This is van life! https://youtu.be/Zv6B8gi2uHs

    YELLOWSTONE!

    Another Yellowstone vlog! This video is all about the top 5 reasons you need to visit Yellowstone National Park! Full-time RV living made it easy to spend a few weeks here and discover things we LOVE. While RV Boondocking in Idaho just 40 minutes away from this National Park, we were able to drive into Yellowstone several times over the course of two weeks. Volcanic activity, wildlife, scenic drives, and more are some of the many reasons to visit Yellowstone, Wyoming. We really hope you enjoy this video and learn something new!

  12. Caravanning with friends has opened us up to new opportunities. While RV boondocking in Idaho with new friends, we get our first taste of outdoor rock climbing! In this video we head over to Red Cliff Campground in Montana for a day of outdoor rock climbing. Our van dwelling friends show us the ropes and explain the differences between indoor and outdoor climbing. We hope you enjoy this video don't forget to subscribe! https://youtu.be/ruiAoa2LxjI
  13. Yellowstone National Park vlog! This is going to be one of many travel vlogs about the Yellowstone, Wyoming area. The Grand Canyon of Yellowstone is one of the most popular iconic stops inside America's FIRST National Park. Full time RV living leads us to a beautiful RV boondocking location just outside West Yellowstone, Montana. Early on a Saturday morning we decide to take a day trip into this amazing National Park. Our priority is seeing the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. This is what the RV lifestyle is all about! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMg41u54rRc
  14. We are full time RV living in Lava Hot Springs Idaho. In this travel vlog we decide to float the Portneuf River with some fellow RVers. Providing information about floating, costs and transportation. Boondocking near the Portneuf River in Idaho, we venture out on a warm summers day for some river tubing. The town of Lava Hot Springs is located a couple miles from our boondocking location and 35 minutes from Pocatello Idaho. The Portneuf River flows right through the town of Lava Hot Springs. The town has many vendors, renting tubes and also providing shuttle options. We opt to bring our own tubes and make the short walk for a few floats.

  15. Virtual Hike in Springtime to Battle Creek Falls Trail. RV Life brings Melissa to the family and dog-friendly Salt Lake City Utah hiking trail to Battle Creek Falls and beyond! In this travel vlog, Melissa leaves Jesse behind and goes out for an adventure endeavor with the girls! The hike to Battle Creek Falls is an easy one mile from the parking lot. Beyond the falls, the narrow trail continues along the creek, up a VERY steep hillside, into alpine territory. This hike is full of small and large waterfalls, huge dandelions, and tons of shale.
