  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
  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
  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 subscri
  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
  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 b
  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! h
  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 Reser
  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. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. Rose Parade HOP Pasadena Tournament of Roses December 27, 2020 – January 3, 2021 Come with us and experience the behind-the-scenes magic of the legendary Pasadena 132nd Tournament of Roses Parade where this year’s theme is “Dream, Believe, Achieve.

  15. 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!
  16. 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 Ke
  17. 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!
  18. 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 ha
  19. 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 Americ
  20. 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
  21. Let's talk about getting out of your comfort zone! This video is a perfect example and will be empowering to many people. Heading back from the Xscapers Bash Melissa decides to tow our huge 5th wheel. Imagine doing something COMPLETELY out of your comfort zone. How does that make you feel? How does that make you grow? Well that's exactly what Melissa did, she faced her fears. To be honest it wasn't that bad. Trailer/RV towing can be nerve racking for beginners, take it slow, be methodical and have a great teacher! Seek Discomfort people, it's the only way to grow! Hope you enjoy the video
  22. 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 sem
  23. 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
  24. 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! T
  25. 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 mont
