Welcome to Grand Adventure, a YouTube channel that focuses on RV-centric outdoor activities including not only of course camping, but also mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, skiing and more, always filmed in stunning 4K.

We’re based in Salt Lake City, Utah, and invite you to come along as we travel all around the western U.S. My wife Patricia and I, and dog Zoe are avid boondockers, so you’ll seldom find us in RV parks or even dry campgrounds. Instead, we’re usually camped in some of the most remote and beautiful spots that you could ever pull a travel trailer into. And unlike most other RV channels on YouTube, we’re not RV dealers or full-timers — we’re “long-timers” who tend to hit the road for weeks or months at a time, while maintaining a sticks-and-bricks home in Utah.

We’ll provide beautiful travel videos, as well as some tips and insight on trip planning, and equipping and maintaining your RV to make your next adventure a grand one indeed! So, subscribe to make sure that you catch every episode, and remember…life is nothing but a Grand Adventure!

    Thanks for sharing looks like a lot of great places.

  2. WILLIAM COOLEY on November 6, 2022 at 9:13 am

    Great job. Several places I have been, but a couple great suggestions. I am always up for a visit to the redwoods. We may have to do Yosemite again this year.

  3. sajohnson33 on November 6, 2022 at 9:13 am

    We actually stayed there at the Mojave Cross. Nice spot!

  4. James Davis on November 6, 2022 at 9:15 am

    Who in their right mind would even consider going close to Californicate? Fuel prices are unaffordable! You pay for a cup of ice water at mcdonads! The traffic is unbearable not to mention the shitty toxic pollution! Unless your into visiting homeless camps In all major cityโ€™s ? Having your gear stolen out of car or pickup? Stay the hell out of this shithole!

  5. Peter Ko on November 6, 2022 at 9:16 am

    i like you you’re a cool guy

  6. GOING PLACES on November 6, 2022 at 9:18 am

    Love your work man!

  7. Randall Wolff on November 6, 2022 at 9:20 am

  8. FireMonster on November 6, 2022 at 9:26 am

  12. sajohnson33 on November 6, 2022 at 9:29 am

    What’s the deal with those rocks that seem to move across the desert floor by themselves?

  13. Tracy Stella on November 6, 2022 at 9:31 am

    Thanks again for sharing Marc! All of your photography is really inspiring and like I said reMARCable! I watch alot of channels and there are a few that comes close to Grand Adventure but not quite. It’s all that you share with us the veiwers and I do appreciate the things you have droned or photographed that I could not have imagined in my wildest dreams! So thank you again!

  14. Downsizing Makes Cents on November 6, 2022 at 9:31 am

    Hey Marc another great tour of awesome rv spots, going full time next month so hopefully we will get to see some of these great views in person, thanks. Larry and Alice

  15. SKPjoe Coursegold on November 6, 2022 at 9:31 am

    love the drone shots.

  16. Brad Wedge on November 6, 2022 at 9:32 am

    Great video! Perfect filming weather. Glad your channel actually goes to cool places like this.

  17. lori h on November 6, 2022 at 9:33 am

    Cali is beautiful and we always like seeing the pups ๐Ÿ˜Š

  18. Happy Trails Hiking on November 6, 2022 at 9:34 am

    Loved all the places, Marc! Thanks

  19. J Barrett on November 6, 2022 at 9:35 am

    You should teach your video and editing skills.. Definitely the best of RV you tubers… Glad i found GA

  20. Gavin Streetie on November 6, 2022 at 9:37 am

    Well yes Iโ€™m back trying to catch up , sorry Marc I been so busy , well seams like I missed quiet a few but now Iโ€™m back I certainly liked California

  21. SAR4X4 on November 6, 2022 at 9:37 am

    The BEST RV travel in CA is Eastbound on the 8, 10, 40, 80, or Northbound on the 15 until you see the signs that say Welcome to Arizona or Welcome to Nevada.

  22. alli J on November 6, 2022 at 9:40 am

    As always, amazing! What time of year were you at Westport Union Lansing? Hard to get a site?

  23. Stacked Pennies on November 6, 2022 at 9:41 am

    Joshua tree is magical. Really miss that place.

  24. Curt Higgins on November 6, 2022 at 9:43 am

    I love seeing video in my birth state! Even more so knowing it is unlikely that I will ever see it again … thanks for the revisit Marc. Beautiful!

  25. Kerry Ware on November 6, 2022 at 9:43 am

    The music could be a little bit quieter. Mood or background level. Not so domineering.
    Actually I much prefer the sound of nature. The breeze in the trees and the birds and the river all sound much more appealing and desirable than the music does. In fact when you’re playing music I turn the audio off and try to imagine what the nature sounds like from the beautiful scenery that your showing.
    When I see beautiful scenery like that I turn the sound back up to see what it sounds like, but all I hear is music and turn it back off again. ๐Ÿ˜ญ
    In fact it would be great if you would signal us somehow that you’re switching to dialogue or nature sounds so we can turn the audio back up. I know some other people feel the same way.

  26. Our Crazy RV Life on November 6, 2022 at 9:46 am

    As always, a wonderful video! I wanna be like you when I grow up, ๐Ÿ˜‰

  27. marian frances on November 6, 2022 at 9:49 am

    Wonderful! Top notch video…ty…ty…ty! ๐Ÿค ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ

  28. Elaine Fleureton on November 6, 2022 at 9:49 am

    Love it, thank you!

  29. Nick Lovgren on November 6, 2022 at 9:50 am

    Have you done any content about your Tundra? I have one for pulling my camper and love it.

  30. genxer711 on November 6, 2022 at 9:51 am

    Good video buy Iโ€™ll be helpful to provide the names of the natural scenery

  31. Thom Fisher on November 6, 2022 at 9:53 am

    The best California travel? No travel there at all! Third-world country.

  32. Laughing Ram on November 6, 2022 at 9:54 am

    After three days of covering Swing Shift, I finally get to watch this video of my home state.

    Filming the giant redwoods never does it justice. One just needs to be to see it.

    Too bad about the smoke out in Tahoe. It is beautiful up there in the majority of places.

    The Mammoth Lake Area / East Sierras looks pretty interesting. Weโ€™ve been wanting to head down to Bodie when weโ€™re up in Tahoe.

    Thanks for another great informational video covering great places to camp.


  33. Don Davis on November 6, 2022 at 9:54 am

    Now your in my state. Thanks Don

  34. joyce marino on November 6, 2022 at 9:54 am

    You pretty much hit a few of our favorite gems but there’s so many others and it has taken us, almost natives, 30 years to find them all, but as much as I hate to share is Grandview campground east of Big Pine. in the White Mountains . It is an astronomers’ favorite and is one of my absolute favorites. Donation only fee! A question, were you able to get your rig onto Gold Bluff Beach, we’ve tent camped there but were warned 2 years ago not to attempt it with our 25′ sprinter?

  35. Smiley Stevie on November 6, 2022 at 9:55 am

    Thanks for sharing your video.

  36. Richard Nash on November 6, 2022 at 9:55 am

    Marc – once again excellent video and commentary. Curious for camping if you made reservations ahead of time or winged it – that is for non-boondocking sites.

  37. Off Axis on November 6, 2022 at 9:57 am

    Love it !! Very good job, hope you enjoy your trip ! If you want to see our travel trip in France country, check our profile ๐Ÿ˜‰

  38. Tom Austin on November 6, 2022 at 9:57 am

    Wow beautiful places to visit n hike Marc ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŒŽ๐ŸšŒ๐ŸŽฅ๐ŸŽถ love your photography skills and the way you tell a story. Very inspiring. Makes me want to jump into my Skoolie and head to those places. Definitely on my bucket list. Maybe this summer. Finishing a couple house projects now n hope to sell the house and hit the road full time. Lots to see and people to meet. Itโ€™s just me now so looking for a dog to take with me traveling n hiking. ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŒŽ thanks for sharing and safe travels

  39. Ari Benscher on November 6, 2022 at 9:58 am

    I wish you mentioned the pricing.

  40. Ernesto Velez on November 6, 2022 at 9:58 am

    Sir, you are always on time, video is great. Thank you.

  41. The Campoholics on November 6, 2022 at 9:59 am

    Nothing but fabulous Marc!!! Outstanding.

  42. Vagabond_Rob on November 6, 2022 at 9:59 am

    Great look back, Marc. Next time you should check out the Bristlecone Pine area. Its south and east of Bishop.

  43. sajohnson33 on November 6, 2022 at 9:59 am

    I’m sure this has been asked and answered before, but where do you get your background music?

  44. Ferdi Schenck on November 6, 2022 at 10:00 am

    Thank you for producing excellent and informative videos!

  45. David McIver on November 6, 2022 at 10:02 am

    My comment about CA: it is beautiful but the roads will rattle your rig to death. Add that to the fact that the drivers are insane and you have the reasons why I would avoid the state like the plague.

  46. Where The Trail Leads - WTTL RV on November 6, 2022 at 10:04 am

    Yes Inspired! Looks like some of the places our 43Ft Class A might fit in. Thank you!

  47. Gorrdd on November 6, 2022 at 10:05 am

    Great fun, Marc… Another really enjoyable adventure.

    Did you end up completely remixing and narrating? Or were you able to use parts previously narrated? Just curious.

    I can see where prior background music and narration would have worked perfectly as a composite to the rest.

    My guess is that you did both…


  48. BenNstyle on November 6, 2022 at 10:06 am

    Good Morning Marcโ˜•๏ธ, we’re on the west coast near Goleta headed northward, so we’re watching this for the second time! Thanks for the excellent footage, information and details in this episode! Safe Travels!

  49. mikes bikes on November 6, 2022 at 10:08 am

    I was looking for info on the best California RV parks, nice videos of your travels. No help.

  50. jwrappuhn71 on November 6, 2022 at 10:08 am

    Excellent vid Marc, I swear, it was almost like I was there….lol.
