My name is Dave and I travel with my dog Bella in a 1990 Fleetwood Bounder Class A Motorhome. This is our tour across America. So join us if you’re open to travel, fun, excitement, hiking & exploring. Wish us luck on this adventure! Maybe we’ll see you down the road sometime. Happy trails!

My channel is about full time RV Living in an older RV while keeping the wheels rolling on a budget. I do the repairs, updates and upgrades myself. I’ve become my own RV Mechanic/Medic! I seek boondocking opportunities every chance I can and power the RV with 500 watts of solar and approximately 500 amp hours of batteries. RV Resorts are just not our style!

    Have you been to the Tehachapi Loop in California? It's between Bakersfield and Mojave. Hardcore railfans retire there so they can watch for the rare event when 2 long trains meet on the loop.

    I loved chasing after the train too! Thank you Dave – it is so neat! My 2 Aunts & I took my cousin on a train ride from Pittsburgh to (I want to say Vandergrift, Pa.)? Seemed like we paid with our bus pass. Then the girls & I rode a steam train at Tweetsie Railroad several years ago. Did you see the movie "Unstoppable"? It was a true story that happened not far from our homes. My Brother remembered it.

    As an FYI Sacramento pass is nice layover if you’re going to Great Basin. Also if going west, lamoille canyon outside elko is awe inspiring. South of ely is cave lake & further south cathedral gorge. Pahranagat near almo is free

    I always loved trains, wanted a train set at one time, but because I"m a girl, my mother wouldn't let me have one. 😢 My father drove for the NYC transit authority, I knew his schedule and would meet him and act as though I was driving. Took Amtrac from Cali to Texas, had a sleeper cabin,, LOVED IT!! Anytime you want to show trains, is fine with me. Feel better, kiss Bella! 😊

    Never thought of trains one way or another but I really enjoyed your videos of trains, so sticking around. I was pretty excited when I figured you had a twist and we’re going to show the train going back.

    10:07 sounds like a dog panting. What great views! That was high tech compared to Stage Coaches and Wagon Trains! I would like to see the expression on the faces of the Native Americans. It would be a bit scary seeing that black Snake slithering through the plains, bellowing black smoke! 😳

    Trains are so amazing and make the best sounds… sorry you are in a funk… I sure wish you and CVK would get together with your big rigs and your interests in showing us the sides of life we don't usually get to see! Bella and the Woof Pack would have a blast together! Stay safe and be well…

    Seems like a lot of people I know have been in similar dunks, me included. Maybe it's something with the way the planets are lined up. You're right that everyday isn't all rosey as much as we'd like them to be. Loved the trains!

    Wow great shots… the train was not running the day we were there. We toured the train yard and museum. The men in the yard were wonderful explaining the trains and talking all things mechanical with my husband and of course i had a great visit with the delightful train yard cat named Dirt. I highly recommend it as a wonderful stop. I am so glad you had a chance to see the train running. Not your typical museum especially as they let you wander around all the train engines they are restoring. I loved it.
