  1. 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

The tires have been upgraded to Sailun all-steel radial S637 G 14-ply commercial-grade tires. Brakes and bearings have been professionally serviced every six months since new. We recently had some road damage that required LCI (original frame manufacturer) to conduct some frame repairs. LCI reported that the frame is now stronger and better than new, and they have provided a one-year manufacturer’s transferable warranty on the frame and suspension. Oh by the way, nobody has ever smoked in this RV, but we have two small dogs. Not to worry, my Spouse worked as a Veterinary Nurse for years and knows very well how to keep the RV clean with dogs aboard. Also, the Champagne-colored 2017 F350 Super Duty, Diesel, Crew-Cab, Long-bed, 4X4, Dually truck in some of the photos will be for sale as well, once we sell the RV. Contact me if if you want to talk about a package deal. The truck has a Ram-Mount Tele-Pole system that holds the TPMS, back-up camera display, an iPad for GPS, an iPhone, and a "Giraffe G4" obstacle height sensor, all for easy driver viewing. (I'm also a pilot, so I like the "cockpit" view from the driver's seat.) Contact me for any questions.
  3. Hello. I'm very curious to hear from any divorced parents regarding child custody as it pertains to full time RV life. I've been very interested in going full time for a while now. Unfortunately, it's very likely my marriage will be ending soon. We have a 4 year old son. It's also become clear that due to my work requirements and what my wife has mentioned, that post divorce, we'd be living in separate parts of the country and she'd likely be named the custodial parent. The end result of this point to me having my son for the summer and Christmas/Easter break on alternating years. I've done lots of searches online for the legal aspects of this and all I've really been able to find is hundreds of answers that can essentially be distilled down to "the best interest of the child." Does anyone have experience on how living a full time RV lifestyle can potentially negatively impact child custody. I (as many people might) envision my soon to be ex-wife saying that an RV is no proper place for a child to live, that it's not a safe structure to be confined in, and that she really would not be okay with us not being stationary and having a permanent address. I see it as a great opportunity to take my son to see sights, museums, parks, etc. Unfortunately, I have a feeling a court would side with the anti-RV argument on this. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
  4. 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!

    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! If you'd like to support our channel, don't forget to SUBSCRIBE!
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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. We hope you enjoy this video, don't forget to hit that SUBSCRIBE button!
  9. 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. If you enjoy this video, please subscribe to our channel!
  10. 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!
  11. 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!
  12. 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!
  13. 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.
  14. 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!
  15. 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.
  16. 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!
  17. 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!
  18. 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!

  20. 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.
  21. 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!
  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.
