  1. Long term travel comes with surprises. In this RVing travel vlog we are headed south from Las Vegas NV to Tucson AZ. Along the way, our 5th wheel has a minor issue. Full time rv living brings its own problems and issues. As we prepare for a travel day we realized that our fifth wheel toy hauler has a flat tire. It's quite a disappointment because the trailer has brand new tires! This boondocking location in Nevada was littered with trash and we picked up a rusty nail. We hope you enjoy our journey to Tucson. Don't forget to subscribe! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oLg659pamfs
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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 tu
  7. 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!
  8. We found we rarely used it. No tears, DW probably picked it up 5 times in 3 years of traveling. If you need one its cheap on eBay. I think I have it for $5 + media mail shipping. -Bill
  9. 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
  10. 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 t
  11. 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!
  12. Looking at signing up for Escapees group at the balloon festival in October 2020. Any past participants have feedback on what it was like and is it worth it?
  13. A Canine Gem, is a local dog rescue located in Burlington Vermont, our Boondockers welcome hosts help foster and find homes for the cute pups. We stayed here foe a long weekend, it's quite amazing to see how they interact and treat these dogs. The dogs are mostly from the south, come from very bad situations. Go give there site a look, remember always consider adoption! We hike Mt Mansfield Vermont's highest mountain, luckily this time we are allowed to bring our rescue and hiking buddy Zamboni. It's quite windy, foggy and even raining a little but we don't let that stop us!
  14. 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!
  15. New England has always been a special place for me, New Hampshire, Maine and Boston. I have a lot of family in the area, in this Vlog we stay at another Boondockers welcome and take the bikes out in Portland Maine. + We discuss Toll prices,I make coffee (very exciting), we explore around our Boondockers welcome which is located in Yarmouth Maine. This season in New England is immensely wet year, for us its great, we are still trying to cool down from our time spend in the south. Feel free to subscribe and hit that like button!
  16. We arrive in Epping New Hampshire, after a great surprise and a disappointing Boston Bruins game 7 defeat. Shaving off my gross playoff beard is priority one, priority two is changing the differential fluid on our Dodge Ram 2500 Cummins. In this video I show you some steps and teach you what I know about the maintenance process. Feel free to subscribe and hit that like button!
  17. I've just published a 45 page resource booklet that has over 50 photos and also clickable links. For anyone who travels with pets or is thinking about traveling with pets, this booklet will be useful to you. This is my story of my first year on the road full time with numerous animals, both domestic and exotic, with lots of reference material included. Topics include how to find places to park and what your choices are; shopping; sightseeing; supplies; emergencies; and more. Authored by the owner of AnimalsAboard.com travel blog with over 50 pet-friendly reviews. $.99 as a digital dow
  18. There's a lot of talk here, and elsewhere on other RV forums, about the advisability of driving US-550 (a.k.a. the Million Dollar Highway) through Colorado's San Juan Mountains in an RV. I figured that I'd give you a video glimpse of the road so that you can make these decisions for yourself. Travel it with us from end to end, from Durango to Ouray. We'll camp in the historic town of Silverton and check our its famed steam railway, take a 4x4 trip across Engineer Pass to Lake City that makes the Million Dollar Highway seem like a Sunday drive, and learn about Silverton's rich mining herit
  19. A small lot of land with a storage building on South Lubec Road in Lubec, Maine. The lot is 8,712 square feet (about 90' x 90'). The building is about 24' square. The land is flat and well drained - gravely. The property has electricity but no water or septic. The property is about 600' from the Lubec Channel and has a limited view of the channel and Grand Manan Island. South Lubec Road is the road to the famous West Quoddy Head lighthouse. Taxes are $615 per year based on a $26,000 assessment. The area of the land is approximately what is bounded by the bushes in the attached photos. The buil
  20. Recently I saw the question posted on facebook, "Can I install a household shower head in an RV" The answer of course is yes. they both use standard pipe fittings as well as the faucets in the kitchen and bathroom. I decided to get a shower head that is not labeled for RV use and see what happens. I was completely underwhelmed, it was just like I had put the factory shower head back on. So now I'm back in the comfort of my oxygenics. Check it out if you have some time!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXr6jFOMVVk
  21. Hi all. I've been reading on this forum quite a bit and love how active it is. I was hoping all you experienced RVers could give my husband and me some guidance on what rig to buy. Here's our plan: We want to travel the country for at least one year with our (now) 2 year old. We are open to the idea of buying a Class C or Class A, but here are our main criteria: 1. NEEDS to have a sleeping solution for our toddler that we don't have to set up everyday (leaning towards Class C because it's more common to find bunks in those). We're also open in remodeling a closet or other space into
  22. We have been Escapee members for about 15 years, about 12 years using their mail service as we are fill time. We have no sort of home base and have not had such for 12 years. That makes it more difficult when we travel internationally as we don"t have a set place to leave our motorhome. In January, we will be traveling out of the country for about two months. We have reservations out of Houston International. We have intended to leave the RV at the Escapees long-term storage. The problem is that Escapees will not take reservations for long-term storage and we were told it was "hit or miss" as
  23. Hello! We recently started fulltiming and I'm looking for an online travel map solutions so friends/family can follow us. There aren't any options that I can find that meet what I'm specifically looking for: Historic route Stops/Points on the route The ability to add descriptions or links to the points/stops Ability to embed the map on a website or, alternatively, have a public link to the map. Google Earth limits the number of points per route Most travel mapping apps are designed to for travel planning, not a historic record of actual travels.
  24. Caribbean Cruise HOP October 22 - 29, 2017 Enjoy the sparkling blue ocean waters, relax on beautiful sand beaches, sip on a favorite cool beverage and watch the sunset. Once on-board, the ship will provide activities, entertainment and incredible food. There will also be fun and interactive HOP socials during the days at sea. The ship offers a wide array of shore excursions in each port-of-call to fit your lifestyle. Excursions are the best way to enjoy the magnificent sights and culture in each of the islands and enjoy the warm embrace of the native people. Enjoy
  25. We RV with 2 beagles, now unfortunately only one. I wrote up a blog post recently with some tips from what we have learned RVing all over the country with them. Hopefully it can help out those that are new to the whole RV scene and bring their dogs with them. IntroductionAnne and I have traveled many times with our two beagles along with us, Oscar a 45 lb. male and Angie a much smaller 20 lb. female. It is one of the reasons we decided to see North America in an RV. We desired to embark on a one year trip and couldn't imagine leaving our beloved pets at home. We don’t have children
