We have loved living in a van (self converted sprinter van) for the last year and a half and while we enjoy spending time in Canada it can get a little cold throughout the winter. So, we've decided to hit the road and drive across the continent to enjoy some warmer weather in Baja Mexico. If our last trip to this country taught us anything... it's to expect the unexpected!!
Today's episode begins in Page, Arizona and we set out to explore 3 iconic spots in the area: horseshoe bend, antelope canyon and last but certainly not least the GRAND CANYON!! Is it possible to fit all of this into 12 hours of adventuring? Stay tuned to the end of today's van life vlog to find out :).

  • I'm about 2 years late to this video BUT I am a student at University of California Santa Barbara and have take a couple geography courses and a meandering river (like this one) is erosional & has a high velocity on the outer edge and a deposition & slow velocity on the inner edge. This allows the river to carve out sharp corners, and maintain its U shape!

  • Im bummed y'all already came to AZ. If there is ever another time you find yourselves in AZ, you can do a stop over in Winslow, AZ. Our place would be open to you. Just an hour south of Winslow on 87 and it feels like you're in the woods. Mogollon Rim is another viewpoint. My wife and I do a lot of camping in that area. Hope y'all are doin well, I have been enjoying watching your new build. Safe travels!!

    • I was traveling the country by car with my dog. I met my man right before this. He was traveling the country by hopping frate train. One of the first places we went after meeting was quartzsite for the RTR gathering and the gem show. We spent our time there falling in love. It was very magical. It would have been cool to see footage from there if you guys got any. I got pregnant two months later in new Mexico and now we have a 3 month old baby. We live in NH now. I watch your guys videos all the time. We plan to get a van ourselves in the next few years and do it up nice enough for our little family to travel again. 💖 loving you guys ✌

  • Stunning! I havent been to the US for a number of years (and I wont as long as that monstrous man is President), however, its a place I love! That said, my question..... is Horseshoe Bend the same as Goosenecks? It looked so like it though when I went (assuming its the same place) there was no lower carpark, you could drive right to the top, to the edge!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Wow Im so disappointed I thought maybe being FREEDOM LOVERS you would value freedom an the people who want it an then you mention Michelle Obama someone who wants to take our freedom away Thank God they didnt get the chance however they are still trying, liking her I could see if you werent small business owners an freedom lovers she works against all of that her husband dam near destroyed our Country with regulations on small businesses an they are sore losers I don't know what Liberals are like in Canada but I know what they're like here hateful violent they can't stand Freedom they don't want us to have freedom of speech or do anything for that matter that we want so I don't expect that you're from Canadian you would know all the facts because the news just lies on a daily here that's proof by there ratings dropping where Nick at Nite ratings are higher than CNN and MSNBC and you would wonder why why is because they lie to the people and we know it but in any event it is made me also a cold person because you have to have your guard up when you're dealing with these people and so I don't support anything or anyone who supports a violent hateful movement into socialism which is the farthest thing from Freedom ever and I'm sorry maybe you guys aren't aware of what's going on maybe you're blinded by lies like a lot of others are who don't research and want to know the truth I don't know what your status is but I just hope to God that you're reasonable people and you look into things before you put all your eggs in one basket the left never used to be like this this is a new left and our country that is moving us further and further away from freedom and you may be saying "why is this girl saying all this just because I said I was going to read a book by Michelle Obama" well that's exactly why I'm telling you because these people are stone-cold liars they lie to us for 8 years they infiltrated our government with the Muslim Brotherhood they did so many anti-American things we're still in shock cuz they did so many things to our country in 8 years while we were asleep at the wheel thinking this is great the first black president yes we all voted for not once but twice we wanted to give him a chance and and hope by the second term we see different but we saw worse way worse the things that were done to our country the racial divide they hate they put towards our law enforcement sometimes I have to pinch myself because I can't believe that this actually happened you can't make this s*** up you can't I just like you guys alot and I don't want you to look stupid or look like fools or like you're being lied to too many young people in our country have been brainwashed by college it's the truth I think it happens in your country too I don't think it's as bad as here though I don't know but it's sad and they don't look they don't research for themselves I just hope you're the kind of people that truly do care you seem like good-hearted honest people and I can't stand when people like that are abused and lie to and made fools of so that's my only reason for saying all this and just be careful because people on the left in our country are very violent and hateful they pretend to be nice but if you disagree with them you're a white supremacist and a Nazi neither of which exist in this country good luck travel safely

You really show the reality of living in a van which is super helpful for people who are planning on living in a van (me on day) 💛 but i would ask you if you can talk moree about how to deal with period while living in a van, cuz i would like to know more about it. It's a complitley natural and beautiful process, so it should not be tmi to talk about it. You two inspire me and wish you all the best in your lives! 🌼

  • We found it weird as well that there weren't many fences to keep people away from cliffs. But, here in Canada, where everyone has health care, the government is more concerned that we stay safe and healthy so health care costs don't go up. Just like, no need to wear helmets. You get hurt, you're own expense.

  • Do ever find yourself not able to drone a location? Or not allowed to go out further with it because of regulations or anything (like horseshoe or grand canyon)? Or not going out further because if you lose it, you lose it... I'm wanting to get a drone, so just curious how you decide when and when not to use it.

    anni poppenanni poppenIl y a an
    • The drone is a beautiful tool but in the US it is illegal to fly the drone at all National Parks and monuments. It can be a very hefty fine and a ban. Please consider the other people that may now try thinking they can do it like you and get caught. Do some research.

      Vlast PojmanVlast PojmanIl y a an
    • ​@Eamon & Bec Totally! I was wondering more if you ever get resistance from authorities to use it (that sounded way more scary official than I mean, lol). I just picture 10 people using their drones at Grand Canyon could ruin an experience, so there may be regulations in place by the park. Or if you've ever been asked for licensing info, although yours would be considered recreational use so probably not?

      anni poppenanni poppenIl y a an
    • anni poppen hi Anni! The way we look at having a drone is that it’s a tool to create and if we don’t utilize the tool because we’re afraid it will break or get lost than we’ll be holding ourselves back from making something really beautiful. Not sure that answered your question specifically 🤗✨
