Starlink is changing the game for RV travelers and remote workers with affordable high-speed broadband satellite Internet available almost anywhere. In this episode of Grand Adventure, after two years of waiting we share our first experiences with Starlink, including mounting their satellite "Dishy McFlatface" on our RV, running speed tests, and changing our service location. We're hardly overstating things when we say that this will change everything about how we travel full-time in our RV, to work and play from the road.

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 during the winter months, and invite you to come along as we travel all around the U.S. My wife Patricia and I, and dog Zoe are avid boondockers, so while you'll occasionally find us in RV parks or even dry campgrounds, we're usually camped in some of the most remote and beautiful spots that you could ever pull a travel trailer into. We've now transitioned from "long-timing" for six months a year, to living and traveling in our RV full-time.
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!
