Solar Eclipse 2017 Adventure

I made a bunch of videos of my Solar Eclipse Adventure. Here they all are for your viewing enjoyment. My plans for the eclipse: I’m giving a way something “powerful”! I also discuss my plans for the Solar Eclipse, and what it takes to photograph it. Can I make it happen with a Cell Phone?! […]


Overland Expo West 2017 and a Scenic Drive

This is likely the most Scenic Drive in all of Arizona, if not the United States. I took this trip down Highway 89A stopping off at the Overland Expo at Fort Tuthill County Park, also known as the Coconino Fairgrounds. They had lots of fun stuff to look at. I then continued on to Sedona […]


Living in an RV with Kids

Do you have experience living in an RV with kids? Let me know what you think, by leaving a comment on YouTube. You also get to see me install a Jerry Rigged ’10+ front skid plate on my ’07 FJ Cruiser, and learn about one of my favorite YouTube channels.


Tempe Town Lake Damn

The kids go to Temple Town Lake Dam to see all the water flowing through the Salt River, as well as the pedestrian bridge over Tempe Town Lake; which is right next to the Tempe Town Center for the Arts. Lots of people where there walking, riding bikes, and all kinds of other personal transportation […]


Calico Mine Shaft

Fry Lake is a very scenic area, and popular place for cattle grazing in the summer time. The cows are typically brought up form the Verde Valley via Jerome Road. It’s a beautiful meadow full of flowers in the summer time, and typically snowed over in the winter. Get the trail details and download a […]


Fry Canyon, Coconino NF, Arizona

Fry Canyon Trail is a beautiful forest road nestled in the mountains between Sedona and Flagstaff, and is a nice shortcut between I-17 and 89A that can then get you close to the forest roads on the west side of 89A above the Mogollon Rim. It also provides a great place for camping, though it […]


Jerome Road, Coconino NF, Arizona

Out in the deep depths of western Coconino National Forest is an old off-road dirt trail called Jerome Road. Today it is primarily used as a connecting trail to and from Casner Mountain Trail. I can only speculate that the origins of this road have something to do with the old ghost town of Jerome […]
