Robinson, North Dakota's population is a whopping 37 people, and Patricia, Zoe and I are proud to round it up to an even 40 for the weekend. Walking around town is like touring a living museum of life on the northern prairie. We're hooked up to the local volunteer firehouse to explore the nearby ghost town of Arena, where no one has lived for nearly 40 years.
Once home to 150 people and numerous businesses, Arena withered during the Great Depression, and all that remains today is the soon-to-collapse St. John's Lutheran Church, an old wooden school house moved to the town in the 1970s for voting, and several abandoned homes and outbuildings. Come along to explore Robinson and Arena through our camera lenses!

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!
