It’s hard to believe that Season 4 is over. It’s shocking that we going to Alaska! During the past two years of posting videos every Sunday there was a recurring question, “when are you going to Alaska?”. The seed has been planted countless times and I guess it worked. We’re excited to get started and share the journey and the last frontier!

About this Episode
Season 4 exceeded our expectations. It was in our backyard and we’ve already been to many of the destinations, but like we’ve said before, traveling by RV makes the destination even better.
Documenting our travel allows us to really be present in the moment and see the landscape through the eyes of the viewer. It was difficult to pick only four amazing places from the 20 episodes of Season 4, but here they are: Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, Arches National Park, Breckenridge Colorado and Lee’s Ferry. We tip’d the ol’ Alaska hat to Santa Fe and Monument Valley.

If you have ever thought about starting a YouTube channel or just want even better videos to document your journey, we share everything we’ve learned. Learn how to create, grow and monetize your channel without knowing anything about video or wasting time.

    We can't wait to share our solar install video. It took Jared and I (mostly Jared) 35 hours. I couldn't have done without him. For RV DIY content, check out All About RVs ➡️

  2. Patty Sternjacob May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    Great recap. Very enjoyable. Anchorage is where I scratched off a bucket list item…..ride in a float plane. It was amazing. If you want to get an overview of Anchorage, take the Trolly Tour at the visitor’s center at 564 W 4th St. Anyway, I am looking forward to following your journey. 🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗

  3. Good X RVn May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    Just saw your segment on The List. You've gone national:-) Great job, love the videos.

  4. Douglas Smith May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    Thanks for all the thought, planning, hard work, honesty, and artistry that goes into your videos. We love the great chemistry you both have when together on camera. Looking forward to Alaska, but can never get enough of your photography and videography in the southwest and the northwest. The kids are amazing too.

  5. Russell Easters May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    Pilots have and religiously refer to a pre flight check list before each and every flight by the numbers without skipping or skimping.
    Why not create a pre trip check list for your RV viewers. You guys know what to check and you could number it ergonomically so they're not running back and forth from side to side they could do it fluidly and confidently.

  6. Betsy Wicks May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    Either on your way to Alaska or on your way back try to visit Barkerville BC. Restored gold rush town that is fun to visit. Check out the Theatre Royal there. Also visit Wells for local artistry.

  7. Bob McCaslin May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    Hey Marc- got a little bit behind following your channel these last dozen days- I got a job at an RV show (Freedom RV) at the Spokane County Fairgrounds, and having never sold an RV, it was a huge enjoyable learning curve! I sold 4 RVs, and had a blast. I look forward to following your trip to Alaska, and let us know if you will be coming through eastern Washington / western Idaho, Ok? Thanks, and many blessings as you travel! Bob

  8. Aimee Olwin May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    Can wait for the new stuff! Got my Summer to Remember t-shirt in the mail yesterday! Summer trips here we come. Our big trip this year is Virginia to Maine.

  9. Donna Marie May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    What a great recap! Thank you!

  10. Our Wandering Footprints May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    Awesome! Love your videos and I can't wait to see your upgrades and your Alaska adventure!! Hugs, Judy

  11. Northstar7 May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    Thank you, both. Sometime on the road, I look forward to a shared glass. Meanwhile, may we all "mind the dips" in our lives with love, curiosity and compassion. Safe travels up north.

  12. Queen of Adventure May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    You guys are so fun, can’t wait to get an RV.

  13. David Schonhardt May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    You folks are the BEST! This is Dave again and I still want to meet you guys on the way up to Alaska or at a place near Anchorage. We plan to spend our time in the Anchorage area. Hope to see all of you.

  14. Kristen Van Fleet May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    while you are upgrading are you still living in the RV?

  15. Dan Brophy May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    Great tease. Good Luck with the trip to AK.

  16. dbeskan May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    Awesome! 💯! Glad we've been around from almost the beginning and have seen growth in in all areas that are great! Can't wait for our T-shirts in the mail! Thank you for your passion!

  17. Patrick Wagz May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    Marc, would you provide a little teaser on the solar install??

    Mainly total watts of the panels?
    And total amp-hours of all the batteries??

  18. Emily Camera May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    How about a meet-up in Redding, CA? We are currently living in our Grand Design in the mountains outside of Redding and we love you guys! Thanks for all of the videos. You have been an inspiration for sure 🙂

  19. Thomas May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    Definitely in my top 3 favorite RV channels. Advice is always spot on, good content and always entertaining. Keep up the great work…

  20. Chris Reetz May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    Looking forward to the next few "upgrade's" video's. That's where we are with our Cougar. I'm enjoying all the great video's of Utah and Arizona. Reminds me of when I was trucking threw there. Utah always reminds me of the Road Runner cartoons.

  21. Steve Walker May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    You should pick up a current Mile Post book. It helped us a lot moving to Fairbanks. Best part about it is that it tells you which RV grounds are open and how far the next gas station is.

  22. RCA_ garage May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    I'm looking forward to the RV upgrades for sure.

  23. Julian Ramirez May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    When is the hitch video coming?

  24. kim dillon May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    Don't know how you guys feel about this idea, but here goes…. How about a video segment done by your kids for traveling with mom and dad? What are some of their thoughts for newbies, best trips, how to "get away" from the daily frustrations, etc.; basically a younger version of your videos!

  25. Julie Herrill May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    So bummed that you were right here and I didn't get to see you. Love your videos and now I'm following all about rvs.

  26. Dominic Pinney May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    You were on local Denver news

  27. Big Truck Little RV May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    The Solar system just added hitch weight to your already ladened F250's payload. Now you over 1,400lbs. Better get tat dually and 5'r soon

  28. vs1Houston May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    New subscriber – have been following along for the last 4 to 6 weeks. My wife and I are looking to acquire our first travel trailer and find your videos fantastic. Thanks for sharing these great videos.

  29. Debra Duran May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    Hey, we are in Albuquerque! Love the Balloon Fiesta! We just picked up our Reflection 5th wheel today and are transferring all our stuff. What a job, it's like the clown trailer. Stuff just kept coming out of the old one. Keep up the fun videos 🙂

  30. Two Beards and a Babe May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    Bring on Alaska!!

  31. Darlene Lorentzson May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    Alaska is going to be so fun. I am in Fairbanks right now visiting grandkids and lived in Homer for almost 20 years. I believe it is the most beautiful place in Alaska. Can’t wait to see it as you go. Darlene Lorentzson

  32. Diane Culbertson May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    I Will be in Palmer, Chitna,Glenallen, Anchorage, Kenai this June. Flying up to visit family. You'll love it, keep it smooth!

  33. Camp More Bark Less May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    Marc, we are glad that you are going to Alaska before we do. This way all the details will be worked out for us, lol. Cant wait to see the videos. Thanks

  34. lakebro May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    Woohoo! Install videos!

  35. Jaunt Junkies May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    Glad to see so much of Utah in your season 4. We love it here. You are correct on the weekend travel that is what we do and have based our channel around. Someday we will make it to a meet up. Keep up the good work. Stay safe in your travels. Congrats on your channels success.

  36. Niles Nibogie May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    meet up in calgary?

  37. Expedition Unknown May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    Another idea for Newbies and Seasoned RV'ers is make a checklist and check it twice.

  38. Eli Williamson May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    Congratulations on your huge donation! I've worked for non-profits like this and hearing the good news brought tears of gratitude to my eyes. Keep up the good work.

  39. Silly Azza Adventures May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    I did read last night, always fill your tank when you are half way. Sometimes stations run out of gas or are waiting for supplies

  40. Silly Azza Adventures May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    Appreciate the RV newbie segment. We are picking up our 86 Airstream Saturday. The full time journey is just about to begin! Love you channel. Your camera work just gets better and better!

  41. Dirt History May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    (Shocker) how I picked up on the bute comment 😊 great season as always

  42. Marty Phelps May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    Are you coming through Salt Lake City on your way to Alaska?

  43. pault1964 May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    Sorry missed a bit just subscribed to all about RVs

  44. Andrew White May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    Ice cream solves all….


  45. Christie O’Brien May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    Great talk!!. And will love the upgrade videos to come, gives us ideas. ☺️

  46. Brian Hickman May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    Make sure you have the Milepost Book. It gives you step by step guide for the road to Alaska. You will be happy you have it

  47. RV 365 LIFE May 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    Each and everyone of our big mistakes – have been due to that rushed feeling that we ourselves created. Taking your time is so important – and the dip – it happens all the time and getting over it – not allowing that dip to ruin your time – great stuff guys!
