In this week's Grand Adventure we're leaving behind Nevada's Carson Valley and climbing into the Sierra Nevada Mountains just to the south of Lake Tahoe, where we've found our favorite boondocking site of the season thus far at Border Ruffian Flat, only a half hour's drive south of Lake Tahoe and outside the "blue line," the perimeter drawn around Lake Tahoe within which dispersed camping in the National Forest is prohibited.
We explore not only our camping area and the area surrounding nearby Carson Pass, but also the gorgeous deep blue and turquoise waters of Lake Tahoe, both from shore and from our kayak launched at Sand Harbor State Park. And much to our surprise, we rescue not one, but two motorists stranded in the forest surrounding our camp.

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!
