Oklahoma has legitimate mountains! Who knew?
Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge, located in southwestern Oklahoma near the city of Lawton, has protected unique wildlife habitats since 1901 for bison, Texas longhorns, and more. It encompasses the Wichita Mountains, North America's oldest mountain range west of the Appalachians. While camping and kayaking at Lake Lawtonka, just outside of the refuge, we'll also tour the U.S. Army's Fort Sill, visit Geronimo's gravesite, down a burger the size of a dinner plate, hike The Narrows, climb Mount Scott, visit a wonderful museum and more. 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!
