Pioneers arrived in the Antelope Valley of western Nevada and eastern California in 1860, their prosperity enabled by irrigation ditches that diverted the water of the Walker River. Today the Walker River supplies Topaz Lake, a popular camping, boating and fishing locale in the far northern end of the Antelope Valley, split in two by the state border. While camping for the Memorial Day holiday week at Douglas County's Topaz Lake Recreation Area we'll find trouble while searching for a nearby gold mine, take a scenic trip across Monitor Pass, find supplies in Gardnerville and Minden, and explore the history of Genoa, Nevada's first European settlement.

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 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!
