One thing you can say about RV travel, you meet some truly wonderful people on the road. From an RV park in Oregon to a boondocking site near Silverton, we've made many new friendships in our travels. Those friendships typically start out with a chance encounter, before quickly graduating into a deep and meaningful conversation in front of the campfire.
Such is the case with the founders of Campendium, the wonderful website and mobile app that turns so many RV campers onto special camping locations that range from remote boondocking to urban RV parks, although in this case the cozy campfire was replaced by a trendy sushi bar. Thanks in part to an RV community that's as small as it is, and a community of electronically connected RV'ers that's even smaller, we found ourselves sitting down together with this couple for a sushi dinner in Salt Lake City when our paths fortuitously crossed earlier this year. We wanted to do an episode of Grand Adventure to introduce them to the many of our viewers who frequent Campendium, but they would have nothing of it. This couple would rather remain behind the scenes, and we both admire and respect their decision.
Ideas nevertheless flowed as freely as the cocktails did during that dinner, and by the time we parted ways after our meal we felt like we'd made great new friends. We've stayed in touch thereafter, and through those conversations Grand Adventure's new collaboration with Campendium was born. The first fruits of this new collaboration appeared today on Campendium's YouTube channel, an abbreviated version of our Episode 108 filmed at Green River Lakes, in Wyoming's Wind River Mountains. While our ultimate goal is to produce unique videos for Campendium, utilizing different editing from our own episodes along with some previously-unseen footage, we're very pleased with how this first effort turned out. We're extremely excited about further developing and enhancing our collaborative efforts with their brand.
So if you haven't yet checked out Campendium, we highly recommend that you head over there now and take a look. Whether you're an avid boondocker, or a full-hookup kind of camper, you'll find honest in-depth site reviews complete with photo libraries and cell phone signal ratings. And soon, you'll stumble across the occasional Grand Adventure video site review there, too!
