My Online Store Is Finally Up and Running!

I’m super excited to announce that my online store is finally live! It’s called Kamchatka Gear, named after a wild and remote region of far eastern Russia that I’ve long been fascinated with. In the video below, I explain a bit more about the site and my plans for it moving forward. (Click here if you can’t see the video below.)

Easy Car Camping Recipes: Breakfast Quesadilla

One of the most common requests I get is to cook more and show more recipes, so in this video I show how to make a delicious and hearty (though perhaps not terribly healthy) breakfast quesadilla. It’s an especially great meal for chilly mornings. It’s cheap and easy to make. What more can you ask for? (Click here if you can’t see the video below.)

The End of My SUV Camping Adventure

All good things must come to an end, and in this video I finish up my monthlong SUV camping road trip. (Click here if you can’t see the video below.)

One of America’s Greatest Drives!

How I Use a Tablet on My Vandwelling and Car Camping Adventures

I’ve been traveling in very remote areas for the past week and a half and haven’t had the time or internet bandwidth to edit and upload a travel vlog, so I threw together this little video showing how I use my cheapo tablet when I’m on the road. Expect a full-length video sometime in the next week. (Click here if you can’t see the video below.)

* Fire 7 tablet from Amazon – This tablet retails for $50 but can be had for around $35 on Prime Day and Black Friday, among other days.
* eTopxizu Keyboard Case For Fire 7 – Note that I think the tablet I have is the previous generation than the one I linked to above, and I’m not positive that the case will fit the newest generation. It may fit, or there may be a newer model available.
* SanDisk 64GB micro SD card

Cooking, Showering, Geysers & More!

In this video I spend some time doing chores around camp, find a geyser in the middle of a southeastern Oregon field, stop by a beautiful saltwater lake, and begin driving up one of the premier mountain roads in the country. (Click here if you can’t see the video below.)

Climbing a Volcano

In this video I climb one of the most prominent and striking mountains in southern Oregon. It also happens to be a huge volcano! (Click here if you can’t see the video below.)
