Tuesday Talk – Least Favorite Features of our Airstream

This week is week two of a two part question. Today we’re answering what our least favorite features of our Airstream are. Unlike last week’s video where we discussed our favorite features, this week’s video was difficult. There are not that many things we dislike about our Airstream home.

On Tuesday’s we’d like to answer questions sent to us from viewer’s like you and share some of the details of our Airstream life. If you have a question for us please let us know in the comments below or at our website astreaminlife.com

 

Rafting, Bald Eagles, & Smokey Tetons

In today’s video, we head to the Snake River with Black Dog Rafting Company to do a scenic morning float. It was a gorgeous morning and we got to see over a dozen Bald Eagles along the river’s edge. Amazing! We also take a drive through Teton National Park which unfortunately is smokey and hard to see and finally take the boat shuttle across Jenny Lake to hike to Hidden Falls.

Heading To Victor & Getting Up High in Jackson Hole

In today’s video, we leave Jefferson County Lake once again and head to Victor Idaho to meet family. While there we are staying at the Mike Harris Campground which is nice and quiet but has the most unique water pump system we’ve seen. We also spend the day at the Jackson Hole Resort and ride the Tram, Gondola, and Chairlift to get some awesome views!

Friday Favorites – Luci Light (Our Portable Solar Light)

This week’s Friday Favorite is our Luci Light. The Luci light is a portable solar powered lantern that’s perfect for evening meals and nights around the campfire. It’s small and compact and then blows up to give out more light. We use it all the time outside of the Airstream and it would be perfect for backpacking trips as well!

Back To Jefferson County Lake, Our Dodge Fiasco & Awesome Viewers!

In today’s video, we head back to Jefferson County Lake for a quick 2-night stay. We’ve decided Jefferson County Lake is our favorite pay-for campground we’ve encountered so far, so why not stay while we get the truck worked on in Idaho Falls. Unfortunately, that turns out to be a disaster but we did get to meet up with Nolan & Joanne, some awesome viewers for fabulous Mexican food so that made the day so much better!

How To Create A Personalized Google Map For Boondocking and Camping

Welcome to our How-To Series. In this video series, we will explain the many how-tos of Airstream Living. From full-time RVing, to travel, to living in a tiny space we will share what we have learned from living this lifestyle. We encourage you to comment below with your own advice on this topic, as well as any other How-Tos you would like to see.

This week’s topic is How To Create A Personalized Google Map For Boondocking and Camping. We did a video a couple of weeks ago about How to Find Free Camping and mentioned we have created our own Google Map to keep track of good boondocking locations. A few viewers asked for a tutorial so here it is.

The first step is to sign into a Google Account since that is where the map will be saved. Then go to Google maps and click on the menu, then My Places and finally My Maps. At the bottom click the link for Create Map. From there you can name the map, name layers and add new pins for camping locations. Don’t forget to personalize the icon and color and fill in a title and description too. Once there you can open your new map on any device with google maps, including a smart phone, and use it to direct you to all the cool spots you’ve saved!

Our Last West Yellowstone Trip Into the Fog to Mystic Falls

In today’s video, we head back into West Yellowstone one last time from our boondocking spot in Island Park. This time we brave the fog to hike in Biscuit Basin to Mystic Falls which is an awesome waterfall! We then continued the loop to a nice Overlook, especially nice since the fog had cleared. Next stop…the Grand Tetons!

Friday Favorites – A Camping Essential – Our Smores Box!

This week’s Friday Favorite is our Smores Box and everything it contains. Smores are a camping essential and we want to be prepared no matter when the campfire opportunity arises. That’s why we keep a Smores Box always stocked and ready. In it we have marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate of course. We also have our expanding campfire forks and other skewers so anyone can enjoy a roasted marshmallow by the fire. This box has meant we can have smores whenever the mood arises and we absolutely love it!
