In this week's episode of Grand Adventure we travel to central Illinois, the Land of Lincoln. While camping right at Lincoln's New Salem State Historic Site we explore not only the historical recreation of New Salem where Abraham Lincoln spent life in his 20s, but also numerous historical sites around the Springfield area dedicated to our nation's 16th President, including the Lincoln Home National Historic Site, Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, the historic Springfield Depot where he left for his Presidential Inauguration and delivered his bittersweet Farewell Address to Springfield, and Lincoln's Tomb, where this great President is buried along with Mary Todd Lincoln and three of the couple's four sons.

USE WHAT WE USE

We've tried it, we've tested it, and we can heartily recommend it. No random stuff or paid product placements.
It costs you no more to shop Amazon with us, but by shopping our store a portion of each sale goes to bringing you more and better Grand Adventure videos! Thank you for clicking through to give us a look!

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!
