This week we kick off the Grand Adventure 2023 travel season boondocking along the Burr Trail, a 75-mile route pioneered in the mid-1800s through one of the most sparsely populated areas in the lower 48. It's a rugged road connecting the tiny hamlet of Boulder in southern Utah with the even smaller locale called Bullfrog, on the shores of upper Lake Powell. It started out as a livestock trail, and it didn't change much for the next 75 years or so. Pioneer Josephine Catherine Chatterly Wood wrote in 1882 that the Burr Trail, “…is the most God-forsaken and wild-looking country that was ever traveled.” While camping we'll explore the area including a slot canyon, searching for ancient cliff dwellings, visiting Anasazi State Park, and of course traveling the entire route that passes through Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument and Capitol Reef National Park, so come along!

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!
