  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. In this video we showing you some things to do in Bryce Canyon National Park! First, we start the day off nice and early at Sunrise Point. Then after a quick 5K, we take advantage of Bryce Canyon's scenic drive. There is no better way to start off a day than an amazing sunrise at Sunrise Point. With a temperature of just 38 degrees F, the view was well worth braving the cold! Then after completing our Xscapers Virtual 5K on the Bryce bike path, we head back into Bryce Canyon National Park to complete the scenic drive. We really hope you enjoy this video, don't forget to subscribe!
  6. Biking Thunder Mountain trail in Bryce Canyon National Park! I take a solo trip mountain biking this famous trail. I turn it into a long loop through Red Canyon on the public bike path. RV living allows us to explore way more than living in a sticks and bricks. I start out by taking a couple dirt roads from our camp in Dixie National Forest. At the trailhead, I realize the trail is rated as difficult. Venturing on this ride alone, I make sure to take my time and have a fun day. Hope you all enjoy this video, don't forget to subscribe!
  7. 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!
  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. 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!
  11. 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.
  12. 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!
  13. 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!
  14. 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!
  15. 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!
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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
  19. 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.
  20. 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!
  21. This video we cover everything about Kernville California, from hiking, mountain biking, fishing, rafting and even skiing. Great boondocking locations and great campgrounds as well. We have been going to the Kern River Valley/Lake Isabella area for a long time now, it's the gateway to the southern sierra's! While we were in Kern for Whiskey Flat Days we decided to share our knowledge of the area and take you on a tour. This area is an outdoor paradise with year round activities. Whiskey Flat Days is one of the most popular festivals in Southern California. This festival takes place in Kernville (Formerly Whiskey Flats), Where the town is taken over with vendors, carnival, rodeo, a parade and even a wild west encampment.

  22. 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!
  23. In this video, we show you some of our highlights from King Of The Hammers 2020 and take you along as we spend the day spectating at various locations. King of The Hammers 2020 is an offroad race that combines rock crawling and desert racing. They have multiple races throughout the week, UTV's, dirt bikes, trophy trucks, every man challenge (lower budget & car limitations) and the main event King of the Hammers. The racers can get up to 100 mph in the open desert and they are also built to crawl the rock sections at high speeds. We started spectating this race around 2009, we have had a great time every year. To keep it safe for spectators they have taped off certain areas, we do our best to get as much footage as possible. Considering that we live in our trailer full-time and Melissa couldn't make this trip I left the trailer with her, ill show you my new RV! Hope you enjoy this video!
  24. 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!
  25. 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!
