Grand Canyon | Helicopter Tour | Williams AZ | RV Living!

October 15, 2019


– [Scott] The ground is going to go away and it will feel different. Alright, three, two, one. – [Tara] Wow. – [Chad] Nice. – Oh my god.
– Oh my goodness. – Love it.
– Oh my goodness. – That is amazing.
– Wow. ♪ Hey ♪ (upbeat music) ♪ Hey ♪ (upbeat music) – Going to the Grand Canyon. – Yeah, we’re excited.
– Grand Canyon. – Never been there before. – Oh my gosh. We’ve been talking about
going to the Grand Canyon before we even like moved into our RV. – Yeah. – So we are on our way
to Williams, Arizona. Now I know it’s not camping
in the Grand Canyon. It’s still what, 45 minutes
outside of it or something. – Yeah, there are only a couple
of spots on the South Rim and if you don’t book those things probably a year out you’re
not gonna get in, so. – Well, that and just
the size of our RV too kind of limits us a little bit. – Yeah.
– But that’s okay. We should be in Williams
in about 20 minutes or so. – Yep.
– So it’s exciting. Here we go. (upbeat music) – [GPS] In 600 feet turn left
on West (murmuring) Avenue. – [Tara] The drive from
Sedona to Williams, I believe it was 60 miles. – Yeah, short trip. Technically, I guess we
could have probably gone to see the Grand Canyon from
where we were in Camp Verde but it would have been
an extra hour or two. – Yeah and we just choose to spend all of our time visiting
the Grand Canyon area closer to the Grand Canyon. So we choose Williams which we had heard is a
really cool town anyhow. – [Chad] It really is. It’s pretty neat little town. There are quite a few
RV parks in that area. – [Tara] Oh yeah. – Apparently it’s a pretty
common place for people to stay even that aren’t RVing and
then they take the railway. Speaking of railway, we
stayed at the Railside, the Railside what, RV Ranch? – [Tara] RV Ranch. – [Chad] Yeah and we are right rail side. – [Tara] It’s called that for a reason. – [Chad] Yeah. (laughing) (upbeat music) – [Tara] Yeah, you’re all
right, you’re all right. You’re all right. Yeah, you’re good. (upbeat music) – I got some really cool
pictures of the trains. The trains also love to honk their horns and stuff when they come through. – Guys, if any of you watch our Williamsburg,
Virginia video. (laughing) You’ll know how much I love
having trains right next to us but we did choose it, we did know and I guess I was okay with
it ’cause I let you book it. – Yeah. (trains honking) (upbeat music) – [Tara] It was a neat park. The sites were big, pull-through sites. It was all gravel and they
did have some amenities. They actually had a spa. I guess it has some hot tubs and stuff but it only is open from May til October. And we were there in the end
of April so we just missed it. But they have a pet spa as well which is a doggy wash station, basically. – Yeah, way overkill for Daisy. Daisy’s spa is right
over there in the sink. – That’s right. (upbeat music) Going to the Grand Canyon. – That’s right, our first
time ever for both of us. – Yeah, other than flying over it. – Yeah, I’ve flown over
it a couple of times, like very high altitude. – Yes. – So very excited for this. – Right. We don’t really know
exactly where we’re going. We’re just, it’s Sunday, we
just got to Williams yesterday. – Yeah. – And we’re just gonna go
drive and explore a little bit. – Go until we don’t go off the cliff and I think that’ll be the Grand Canyon. – Jeez.
(Chad laughing) – No, we’re headed to the
Grand Canyon Visitor Center. Get a little information there and it looks like there’s a road that goes around the South Rim where you can stop at various points and take pictures and stuff. So we’re just gonna wing it. – [Tara] It’s about an hour drive. No big deal it’s just
kind of a straight shot. As we were driving, all of a
sudden there were more trees and we entered the Kaibab National Forest. I think that’s how you say it. – [Chad] I’m guessing. – [Tara] Yeah, and so it
started getting exciting. – [Chad] We’re probably doing it wrong. – Probably yeah. Before we went in to the
Grand Canyon National Park, Chad had found some BLM land
that we wanted to check out. And see if a rig our size would fit and so we scoped it out for you guys. ♪ Why would they lie ♪ ♪ Wait in line ♪ ♪ I’ll get there ♪ ♪ We’ll get there ♪ – [Chad] We wanted to do
a little more boondocking and obviously doing that with our ginormous fifth
wheel is a challenge. And we do have some boondocking
coming up in a future video. But this place was not for us. We took the truck, scouted it out. It was a little bit more rough terrain than we would probably be able to do. – [Tara] Rough terrain, dirt roads. – [Chad] Yeah. – [Tara] Which can be tough. Really pretty, it would be
cool if you had a smaller RV. Because they do have certain areas you can kind of tell are
already made into sites. – [Chad] We found a fusebox that we think probably
would have worked but. – You don’t want to count
on those being available. – Exactly, exactly. They could have been there that day and then we cancel our
bookings for the next week and go drive over there and it’s gone. So in situations like that we
just stick with the bookings. – Yeah, if you’ve been watching
us for any length of time you know we like to plan in advance. – Yeah. (laughs) – So it wasn’t something that we thought we would be
able to do moving forward. In that area if you guys know
of any cool boondocking sites for big rigs anywhere near
the Grand Canyon area, let us know. – Yeah, yeah, we’d love to check it out. ♪ My gravel parking lot is
still just rundown cars ♪ ♪ The smell of seedy waste
is made by seedy farms ♪ ♪ And if I stay up late ♪ ♪ Then I can hear the sound ♪ ♪ Of people’s recklessness ♪ ♪ Back in the broken house ♪ ♪ ‘Cause I see something in you ♪ – [Chad] We went to the
visitor center first, right? – [Tara] We did. – [Chad] That was a bit of a bust. – [Tara] First of all parking is tough. – [Chad] Yeah and they
have huge parking lots at the visitor center. So we took forever, found a spot, made our way up to the
visitor center area. – And even the lines for
the restrooms were crazy. – So we’re at the Grand Canyon. – It’s like Disneyland. – Haven’t seen the Canyon yet. – It’s packed. I mean I knew it would be but it’s like I don’t
find it peaceful yet. – I think we got to go
around the other side of the commercial parking. – [Tara] Okay. – Was where that bathroom was. Of course we got to go to the bathroom. – Right, but there was an enormous line like you would find at
Busch Gardens for a ride, for the bathroom. (upbeat music) – I don’t know if you can see this. – Wow. – That is freaking amazing. – And we’re just gettin’ started. – Imagine the people
coming here originally, the first people to discover
this in their wagons. Like holy (bleep), I think
were gonna have to go around. (both laughing) – How do we get over there. – Yeah. Super crowded at this, this is
like the main overlook thing. – Yeah, we’re at the visitor center. – Yeah, we’re gonna find
some more private areas. – Yeah. (upbeat music) – [Chad] A good chunk,
probably like 80%, 90% of the crowd there were
coming off of tour buses. – [Tara] Right and I think
they have limited time maybe on each stop and so. – They were in a hurry, (laughing)
they were a little pushy. – And they didn’t care
and this was the first of many, many times that this
happened to us moving forward in our adventures out West. (upbeat music) – [Chad] The tourist center, I don’t know, I mean we went in and we
looked at some of the stuff. I don’t know that it had a whole lot that we would have to see. – [Tara] Yeah I think that they– – [Chad] Just go look at the hole. – [Tara] They play a video
every 10 minutes or so but we weren’t around for that. We just walked around in a
really short amount of time and then we were hungry so of
course we had to get a snack. – [Chad] Yeah. – [Tara] Before we continued on. (upbeat music) You’re gonna find plenty of other places that are much less crowded. Just as fantastic if not better views. – Just head east around the South Rim. There’s lots of places to pull over. What I found interesting was, in my head, I pictured the Grand Canyon and they’ve got safety rails and stuff. There are no safety rails. There are some. – [Tara] There are some. – [Chad] That’s were you’ll
want to take your kids but you can walk around those rails or walk out into the woody area. – [Tara] Oh we sat on the
edge of the Grand Canyon and just dangled our feet. – [Chad] That’s pretty cool. – [Tara] It was pretty scary. – But the Grand Canon–
– Is scary. – [Chad] It’s amazing. (upbeat country music) ♪ You’ll never guess the
place’s that I’ve been ♪ ♪ You’ll never guess the
places that I’ve been ♪ – So Williams did not disappoint. – Oh I loved Williams. – Williams was a neat little town. It was a good place–
– I loved it. – To walk around, it’s actually Route 66. – It is.
– Cuts right through there the old original Route 66. – Yes. (upbeat country music) – That’s a neat little downtown area so we’re gonna take a little walk around. – It’s so cute. – This is actually Route 66 right here. – [Tara] Yeah. The place we’re gonna eat
is the Historic Brewing Co. and it was an old saloon,
so that’ll be fun. We’re gonna take a little walk first and then we’re gonna go eat. – [Chad] Let’s do it. (upbeat country music) – [Tara] It was so cool. All the little shops and
restaurants and bars, everything was so eclectic
and independent and there’s some tourists stuff–
– Lot of cool. – [Tara] And souvenir shops and things. – [Chad] Yeah, there
was that old gas station that had the old school pumps and that was refurbished and it looked, it was really cool, very retro. – [Tara] Some small diners
and some old school bars. – Yeah. – Push and turn the knob. (Chad laughing) Sign says right there. (Tara gasps) – [Chad] This is an old school bar. – This is cool. (upbeat country music) ♪ Never gonna come down from above ♪ ♪ ‘Cause everything
looks better from above ♪ ♪ And nothing’s ever as it seems, yeah ♪ ♪ Except in that world that I dream of ♪ ♪ Never gonna lose the ones I love ♪ ♪ Never gonna lose the ones I love ♪ ♪ Because every thing
is like a dream, yeah ♪ ♪ But only in that world that I dream of ♪ ♪ Oh, don’t wake me up before you go ♪ ♪ ‘Cause I can’t face this day alone ♪ ♪ Oh, darling, please just let me sleep ♪ – [Chad] What was the place we ended up eating in that little brewery? – [Tara] It was Historic Brewing Co. – [Chad] Yeah, good food, good beer. – Yes, that was an old
saloon in it’s heyday. So it was kind of cool that
they turned it into a brewery. And this brewery not only
makes beer but they make wine. (Chad laughs)
(upbeat music) These are all Arizona wines and if you get here
before six it’s happy hour and so the $10 glasses of wine are $4. So even though I’m getting to see (glass crashing) Oopsie. – There goes $4. (upbeat music) – [Tara] We had great service, great food and a really good time
walking around Williams and eating at that place. – We like to eat. That was a dam good burger. – That place is cool. And Michael was an amazing server. He was awesome. – He was amazing ’cause he gave
is lots of samples for free. – Well no, he was just very attentive and I was high maintenance that dinner. I didn’t mean to be but I was and he didn’t think anything of it. So he was super cool and the food was good and the atmosphere was good. And the wine was delicious, Provisioner. – And the beer was good, really good IPA. – Who would have know that
Arizona wine was so good. I didn’t know. – Yeah. – But it was good. So now we’re just gonna stroll
around a little bit more and then go get the puppy. – Yeah, Daisy. – Yeah, they know. – I know. (dog barks) (train clanging) (train horn blaring) We’re headed to the
Grand Canyon on Lucille. – It’s the first day that
it’s been nice enough for us to take the bike out. We’ve been here for six days. – Yeah, it’s gorgeous today. Got our N.P.V ready to go. – That thing has already paid for itself. – Many times over. – Many times over. – Most of these parks it’s like 30 bucks, 35 bucks for a car. – The Grand Canyon’s $35 a car. – Probably 35 for a bike too. – Probably. (engine revving) (upbeat rock music) ♪ You know baby I’ma moving ♪ ♪ I’ma moving with your vibration ♪ ♪ You know baby got me losing ♪ ♪ Got me losing my concentration ♪ – [Tara] It’s about an hours ride from the RV park in Williams
and it’s a straight shot up 64. ♪ You know baby don’t you tease me ♪ ♪ Don’t you tease me
with your temptations ♪ – [Chad] If you don’t
have a National Park Pass you’ll definitely want to
get one at your first park. If you’re gonna be
doing more than one park in the next year. – [Tara] Right, oh yeah. – [Chad] ‘Cause they’re like 80 bucks and then you can get in
pretty much everywhere. (upbeat music) ♪ Time has been so hard on us my friend ♪ – [Tara] And then we got up to
the guard gate and we waited. – [Chad] Yeah, it was about 20 minutes which I guess is probably not too bad compared to some national
parks getting in but. – [Tara] 20 minutes is significant when you’re just sitting on the bike and the sun’s beating
down on you and stuff. – [Chad] True, true. ♪ Still works out in the end ♪ – How you doing? – Doing all right, how about yourself? – Oh, not too bad. – You need a map for anything? – Nah, we’re good. Which way do you recommend
riding motorcycle, east or west up there? – East, definitely,
– East. – That might be better. – Okay.
– Awesome, thank you. You think it’s gonna be
really busy on Sunday with Easter or?
– Absolutely. – [Tara] It’s always gonna be bust right. – This weekend, yup. – Yeah, have a good one. Our goal was to go to
what’s that watchtower named on the South?
– Desert View Watchtower. – [Chad] Desert View Watchtower which I don’t really get
’cause it’s not a desert. You’re looking at a canyon
and the canyon’s not a desert. I don’t really get the name. – [Tara] Chad. (upbeat music) ♪ Time has been so hard on us, my friend ♪ ♪ But through every night
we keep on getting ♪ – [Chad] We saw quite a few
campgrounds on the way in there. – [Tara] If you’re interested
in staying at the campgrounds in the park make sure you make
reservations well in advance because those campgrounds fill up fast. – It was about another 35 minutes to get to the Desert View Watchtower, if you go straight through. We did not go straight through. – [Chad] Yeah, we stopped along the way. – [Tara] Which we did because
you can’t see a whole lot of the canyon when you’re on the road. There’s a lot of trees
on both sides of you and it’s awfully hard to see that there’s a canyon so close by. But there are a lot of parking
areas for special overlooks and view areas I guess. And we did stop at several of those and the views are just outstanding. It’s still tough to find parking spots in these little parking areas. We were fine ’cause we had
the motorcycle this time. So we didn’t have to worry about trying to fit the big truck in there. ♪ Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah ♪ ♪ No matter what they call it ♪ ♪ No matter what they want it ♪ ♪ They don’t know there’s no
way they will ever get it ♪ ♪ Wind just blows by
and keep us standing ♪ ♪ We’ll call it ♪ ♪ Whatever that we want it ♪ – [Chad] What’d you think? – It’s awesome. – So we made it up to the
Desert View Watchtower which isn’t on the South Rim but by that point they really, it was really more of an east rim. – Are you making that up? – Well it’s just geographically accurate. ‘Cause you go up. You start out going east and you go up and then the canyon keeps going north and the road keeps going east– – Okay.
– And you go away from the canyon.
– I see. – Yeah, trust me. (laughs) – I don’t know about that. – Well because you can
see the sunset from there and it faces west.
– Right. – So there’s that. – But I don’t know if it’s
called the eastern rim. – No, it’s not, it’s called the South Rim but my point is they got it wrong. – Oh (laughing) Oh my god. – When the sun sets you
got a nice western view over the Grand Canyon. – [Tara] Yes. – [Chad] And we didn’t get to see that because we wanted to get back. We didn’t want a long ride
in the dark on the bike. – [Tara] Right and it was a long ride but a lot of people go
specifically to that area for the sunset. – So check that out. We’re gonna head back soon so we’re not driving home at night. – Yeah, because we’re probably, at this point probably two hours away by the time we get down and then out. The watchtower was built in 1932 and it’s a 70 foot high stone building. – [Chad] You can actually see
the Colorado River from there. – [Tara] Really well. – Yeah.
– Yes, it was beautiful. – But we got to see it even better. – Coming up. It’s coming. – [Chad] The tower itself I
guess you can go to the top of. We didn’t know that at the time. And I remember looking for them. I remember being in there
of course it’s a gift shop because anywhere they can
put a gift shop they will. – [Tara] Yeah. – [Chad] But I looked around and I didn’t see anyway you get up. – [Tara] It says on their
website that you can so. – [Chad] Maybe you got to buy a ticket or something I don’t know. – [Tara] I don’t know. – [Chad] We drove back, pretty uneventful but just being that we
can ride the motorcycle around the Grand Canyon was pretty cool. – [Tara] It’s so cool and
it’s just such a neat way to explore the country. I love it.
– Yeah. (upbeat music) (train bells ringing) (train honking) – Yup, we’re glad you’re still here because the coolest part’s comin’ up. – That’s right. Please click that like button
if you haven’t already. – Right.
– That helps us out. Please subscribe. So the highlight of this
trip was Tara’s birthday. – My birthday.
– Birthday. – We took a helicopter
tour over the Grand Canyon. – [Chad] Mm-hmm. So we’re gonna go. – Helicopter. (laughs) We have been talking about doing this since before we ever moved into the RV. – Yeah, this was like one of those things that we talk about, “Hey you know when we’re full time RVing “we can go to the Grand Canyon “and we can take a helicopter tour.” – Yeah, yeah, so it’s now. It’s happening today. – That’s right.
– It’s super cool. – It’s somebodies birthday today, 25. – It’s me, I’m 25. – Is 35 more believable, 35. Something with a five at the end. (both laughing) – [Tara] We choose the Canyon Spirit tour which is 45-minute tour. (upbeat music) – [Chad] The helicopters are good size, they can actually seat, plus the pilot– – [Tara] I think it’s
seven plus the pilot. – [Chad] Yeah, four in the
front and four in the back. They choose you’re seat randomly. – [Tara] They said they do it by random computer draw somehow. – [Chad] Yeah I did let them know that it was her birthday and we would love to sit upfront. Maybe we got that because of that. Maybe we got lucky draw I don’t know. – I don’t know, it
can’t kurt to tell them. (upbeat music) We got to sit upfront
with the pilot, Scott. Scott was great. (upbeat music) I really don’t think I
would have liked it as much if we were sitting in the back. – [Chad] Everybody has
a great view in there but the front is a little better. – [Tara] Oh, yeah. So we were surrounded by the
whole bubble around us is glass or whatever it is. We can see through it. – [Chad] It was pretty amazing. – [Tara] Yeah it was. ♪ Why would they lie ♪ ♪ Wait in line ♪ ♪ I’ll get there ♪ ♪ We’ll get there ♪ ♪ Right on time ♪ ♪ It’s all within the line of sight ♪ – [Scott] So for the
first 10 or so minutes we’ll be going low and fast over trees. For about the first five minutes I won’t be able to hear
you or talk to you. I gotta do my thing with the
tower and all that stuff. So as long as you have headsets on, seat belts on, we’re all somewhat comfy. I’m gonna turn the switch off here, I’ll talk to you about
five minutes all right. – Right.
– Very good. – [Tara] And then all of a sudden. – [Chad] Bottom drops out. – [Tara] Bottom drops out. – [Scott] The ground is going to go away and it will feel different. (upbeat music) – [Tara] Wow. – [Chad] Nice. – Oh my goodness.
– Oh my god. – Love it.
– Oh my goodness. – That’s amazing!
– Wow! – [Scott] Quite a bit different isn’t it. (upbeat music) If you’re still unsure by the way that is the Colorado River. ♪ You need the ocean and a light breeze ♪ – [Scott] This edge that
you see about 2:00 o’clock. That is called the Desert Palisades. That is the most vertical
part of the Grand Canyon. (upbeat music) It’s called the Little Colorado. You can see the water is
much more sand colored. – [Chad] Oh yeah. ♪ And how you’ve always
wanted to go to space ♪ ♪ Our friends were watching
from a rocky ledge ♪ ♪ When I noticed your
reflection at the waters edge ♪ – [Chad] Imagine the first
people coming to this way in covered wagon. – [Scott] Oh I know. – [Chad] And hitting
this like, “Well (bleep)” – [Scott] Yeah, get that all the time. Well now what do we do, you know? ♪ Oo, oo, oo ♪ And we’re gonna end up right near the snow away over there in the corner. I’ll climb up over. ♪ Oo, oo ♪ ♪ The broad sun resting on the water bed ♪ ♪ Before it’s time to
think the sky glowing red ♪ ♪ A pair of gulls
singing a familiar tune ♪ ♪ When you notice my
reflection in the water too ♪ ♪ When you just stole a kiss ♪ ♪ I will always remember this ♪ ♪ Oo, oo, oo ♪ ♪ Oo, oo, oo ♪ ♪ I will always remember this ♪ – That was a fantastic, fantastic
way to spend my birthday. It was a super expensive tour and it’s not something that
we’re gonna do a lot of. If you saw our Key West video for his 50th birthday I
bought him a seaplane tour out to the Dry Tortugas. – Yeah. – [Tara] That was awesome. We’re now thinking that
we need to have a theme for every birthday to do
some kind of air tour. – Some sort of air tour. – We’re cool. – So we’ve done three air tours now. We did Bar Harbor by plane. – [Tara] Yes. – [Chad] We did the seaplane in Key West. – [Tara] Yes. – [Chad] And we did the
helicopter over the Grand Canyon. – [Tara] Right. – [Chad] What’s next? Is there gonna be like a ballon. We need to go on a balloon. – Oh. – If any of you own a balloon
and you’re good at flying it and you haven’t killed anybody. (laughs) Let us know. Let me clarify a real
balloon with a basket. Not like some you know weather balloons tied to a lawn chair. Something like that. – Although he’d probably. – I would love that. – He would probably be
willing to try that. – I would do that. I would take a parachute. – I wouldn’t let him. – And cut and go, but, yeah. – So we just got back
from the helicopter ride. – That was awesome. – It’s amazing, you come up over– – Oh my gosh.
– Come up over the thing and come over in to the canyon. It’s just beautiful views. – So awesome that I’m ready to eat. – Yeah, we’re going to– – El Corral. – El Corral, I think it means the corral. – Yeah, yeah. I’m starving so I can’t think straight. – Yeah, let’s go. Birthday margarita. – It was so so. The place was just eh. We didn’t love it but you know
we needed to fill our bellies and we were tired ’cause it was a big day. It was super awesome. (upbeat music) We know we missed a lot while we were in the Grand Canyon area. – [Chad] We could have gone
west a little bit more. We didn’t have a chance to do that. – [Tara] Right, we were actually in that part of the country for two weeks but the weather just didn’t
cooperate most of the time. – [Chad] Yeah. – [Tara] So we got out
and explored in the times that we did we had a blast. It was a lot of fun. – [Chad] Yeah, and that’s kind of why we went to two weeks stays this year. If you get a little bit of bad weather we’re gonna have a couple
days here and there. – [Tara] Right. – [Chad] We missed a few
things like Bearizona. – [Tara] Yes, and that was
right around the corner from the RV park. – We could almost walk to Bearizona. – I know and we have heard so
many great things about that. But let us know what else we need to see when we go back to the Grand Canyon. And doesn’t matter if it’s North Rim, South Rim or whatever let us know. – Our next location we’re
gonna do some boondocking. – We are, we’re going to Lone Rock Beach. So keep following our journey
to see our next adventure in Lone Rock Beach. Again please subscribe
and click the like button, follow us on Facebook and
Instagram, well see you next time. – Yep, outtakes.
– Outtakes. Jinx. (Chad laughing) – Or been out to Vegas many times and thought about going
to the Grand Canyon but just got drunk instead. (both laughing) – And the trees started showing up and it started to get a
little bit more hilly and. – Trees started showing up.
– They did. – Hi, I’m here. – Hi, I’m a tree. – Home to be a tree. – Oh my gosh. (Chad laughing) You’re so silly. – There’s lots of woods to pee. I could just jump through
the thing here and go pee. – Yeah, well, easier for you than for me. – It is easier for me. – That sun smarts doesn’t it. (Chad laughs) In any kind of wrap-around glasses I just feel like the Terminator. I’m not a Terminator. – Get to the choppa’. – Going to the Grand Canyon and we’re gonna take a helicopter tour. – Get to the choppa’. (Tara laughing) Is it good? – Has Daisy pooped today? ‘Cause I think I smell her. Did you poop? Did you fart? – You got a stinky (bleep). – Is you stinky? Are you stinky? – Just laying here farting on us. – Yeah, she’s asleep. She’s relaxed. (Chad laughing) Okay. – We drove through one
of them didn’t we or no? – We didn’t. He’s thinking of Glacier. – Oh yeah.
– Yeah. – [Chad] What do you think
of the size of my wiener. (both laughing) – It was built in 1932 and
it’s a 70 foot tall. (laughs) It was built in 1932 and it
was a 70 feet tall building. – That’s easy for you to stay. (laughs) We’re gonna find some more private areas. – Yeah. – Do private things. – [Tara] Stop. – We got our home, we’re living in our house 60
minutes from the Grand Canyon. (both laughing) – You sound like Christopher Walken. (both laughing) – We’re living in our house. (both laughing) – I tried so hard to hold it in. Okay, I’m sorry. – Okay, let’s try it again. You made me laugh while me being crying. – I’m sorry, I don’t mean
to make you cry baby. (Chad laughing) – Okay. So that’s why we do this
right, I mean. (laughing) Shut up. Daisy, tell her to stop. – (laughing) Okay, I’m sorry. It’s like you get the
giggles and then it’s. – Yeah. – Okay.

  1. You two are GREAT! The stills, the editing, the outakes and especially the music! Look forward to the next one and the next one and the next one. Get back to key west

  2. Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta the first full weekend of October every year. Get an RV spot on the grounds NOW! It just ended today! I'll bet Grand Designs have a rally.

  3. Great video as always!!! Got a question though on the state park pass, wat does yur camp sites cost?? Is it a big discount???

  4. We were at the grand canyon in March. It was crowded then and there wasn't any parking. The tourist center is a waste of time, not enough rangers and people are rude.
    We stayed at the KOA north of Williams because of the trains.

  5. Frickin awesome guys! Being afraid of heights ( I'm talking 3-4' up) ya think I should do the chopper?? 😵😛 not gonna happen. Almost passed out watching your video! Lol

  6. CHANGING LANES is AWESOME! when we are finished recording our transition to full time, we will be stopping there in our first season fulltime RVing. I was there almost 20 years ago but I want to take my wife and kids. What drone do you have to get those aerial shots?

  7. I enjoy seeing both of you enjoy life. You share your life with the world. This video has information we all can use when visiting the Grand Canyon. Thank you safe travels.

  8. Was there in 1992 visiting relatives in Phoenix. Thanks so much for sharing. You've brought back so many great memories. Safe travels and keep em' coming!

  9. I'm the schmo who lived in Az for 18yrs and never went to GC. I was young and dumb.
    It's on our list now that we have an RV. Someday soon. Looks bananas especially since my fear of heights is badddd. I got chills with that shot of you two sitting on the ledge. Those bloopers got me again. 😂😂😂😂😂

  10. Hey, we stayed in the very same campground for our visit to the Grand Canyon in September! Loved it and the Grand Canyon was truly amazing! We are enjoying your videos! What editing software do you use? #changingtheview

  11. Our dream to ride the motorcycle to Grand Canyon and many other spots in mid west. Just gonna take a 6 to 8 week trip and get them all. Great footage and usual great content. Williams does look like a fun little town. Thanks a lot for taking us along guys.

  12. WOw, the Historic Brewing Company had a hockey game on! Now I like that. Great video. I love that part of AZ. Happy travels. BTW, if you're headed in to San Diego and you're up for it, reach out and we'll meet for the best burger in town.

  14. We stayed at Railside Rv Ranch last September, it was a great park! And the Grand Canyon…Wow, its fantastic!! What an Awesome Birthday present! Wonderful video you guys!!

  15. You're out takes at the end had me crying I was laughing so hard, the dog vapor trailing you was hysterical. Chad I had no idea of you're age, welcome to the "Dark Side". We are thinking of a Grand Canyon trip next year in September and I would LOVE to do the helicopter tour. Hopefully someday you guys will be in the Georgia area, because I'd love to buy ya a beer and a burger.

  16. there is are two balloon festivals in Oregon Festival or balloons in Portland, and then Vista balloon adventures that is really fun to go to but i have not been up.

  17. This was great. We're definitely going to go to Williams, Arizona when we travel. The helicopter ride was great. Awesome way to see the grand canyon

  18. My family came out to Vegas(where I live)on Thanksgiving week 2017 and we went to the Grand Canyon r/t in one day…. it's feasible but I wanted to stay overnight in Williams but they aren't into Route 66 stuff…the parking at the visitor center was insane for us too… it took close to a 1/2 hour to park…we took the express bus out to Hopi Point for the sunset which was a fast trip BUT the trip back they has to stop at every twig and rock…OMG…. that was so long… on the way out of the park there are several signs to watch for wild life…. I had an Elk right at my driver's side door – I was going 2 mph… thankfully I got to see this beautiful animal so close…. Another great job by you guys… Thanks so much !!!

  19. Happy Birthday Sweet Lady!!!!!
    Wishing you many more happy and healthy ones…..
    Train Horns- the first thing that came to mind was "My Cousin Vinny" I'm hysterical.
    I love choppers, dunno if you played on one in Desert Storm. That ride had to be wild! Especially going over the edge. I did the helo tour over Niagara Falls, that was amazing too, so if you go north it may be something to consider.
    The Grand Canyon, such a beautiful gift from God! Mother earth showing off her jewels. Millions of years to make that. It makes you realize how small we are in the grand scheme of things.
    Poor soggy daisy. She paid you back for that didn't she! …. Stinky butt dawg Ha Ha
    The town was so cool! Was that a blown Maverick on the street? LOL, that's a new one.
    Again, thank you again for the great videos, and allowing me to live vicariously through your eyes. It's heartwarming to see you two together, the love definitely shines through.
    So,
    Safe Travels,
    Keep the shiny side up,
    God Bless

    PS: Give Daisy a treat for me!
    Maybe some puppy Beano too.
    Have fun!!!

  20. What a great time! We took a helicopter from Vegas over the Hoover Dam and landed in the canyon for wine and a picnic. Not the grandest part of the Canyon, but still an amazing time. Put it on your bucket list, and happy birthday Tara.

  21. I love the North Rim. It has a faction of the visitors of the South Rim. I don't think you will be able to camp in the park with your rig, but Lucille will love the road from Jacob's Lake to the Canyon. Be on the lookout for the buffalo. Keep in mind the North Rim is only open from May through October. Put the Balloon Festival in Albuquerque on your list. It is an exciting event.

  22. I went in the South Entrance, paid my fee, got my receipt and it was supposed to be good for a week. After a couple of days, I wanted to drive out the East Entrance and see what all was along the river east of the park. When I returned and showed my receipt, that said it was bought at the South Entrance, to get back into the park, the ranger at the booth accused me of buying a used ticket off of somebody that was not staying a full week instead of purchasing a new ticket. I told him what I had done and how I like to enjoy the area around the National Parks. He continued to question me for a good while before he let me back in. If I ever do that again, I will stop on the way out of the park and tell them what I am doing. I did not appreciate that at all!! I am not a thief.

  23. I was at Lone Rock when you were there I was the one with the kayaks. I'm headed back there this weekend. Happy Travels 🎉

  24. Cool video! I love it here in Az! Back in 1981 when I was 11 yrs. old my Grandma bought me a helicopter tour over the Grand Canyon. Back then they dove down over the edge and flew through the canyons. That's since been banned due to accidents.

  25. We toured most of the same spots this passed June only we flew in.
    We went to this old mining town called king crown or crown king was a 30 mile drive into the desert . Delicious Berger’s

  26. When I saw it for the first time, I cried and I'm a big bad ass 22 year Navy retiree. Almost went to my knees.
    It instantly reminded me what we are serving for. I got to me.

  27. We tent camped for our oldest daughters 1st birthday at the Grand Canyon in 79. Used a sunrise photo from that trip as the background of our channel logo. Visited in Model A Ford's also. Have not yet done the helicopter tour. Thanks for that!

  28. Nice video. Informative on visiting South Rim of the Grand Canyon. You should consider visiting the North Rim – awesome but harder to get to

  29. Yep, the Grand Canyon is AWESOME! I took a bike trip and stopped there a few years ago, and took the same route you did around the east rim. Only difference was I was headed to Colorado so I went out through Tuba City. Not much there but the Native American owned hotel I great. Next trip in a couple of years I'll spend some time on the north rim.

  30. Happy Birthday Gorgeous. Opps did I just say that. Yes the canyon is unbelievable.Back in1978 I was living in Denver. We decided one night to go and hick to the bottom of the canyon. It was a fantastic trip.

  31. I see the VAW-124 patch. What did you do in the Navy? And if it was Avionics, when and where did you go through A school? Also you missed a heck of a time in Hot Springs AR. for the Gregory 500+. We set a new world record of 651 Indian Motorcycles in a parade.

  32. Don't know what your schedule looks like, but if you have time, I highly recommend you guys flip over to the northside of the Canyon. The official north rim may already be closed, but there is a stunningly beautiful point just west called Toroweap (some call it Tuweep). From Fredonia, AZ, you basically take a dirt road for 60 miles to reach it. Obviously, you wouldn't want to take your trailer down there.
    The canyon is only about a mile or two across at this location, but the walls on both sides are almost sheer drops all the way down to the Colorado below. There's also an extinct volcano right on the edge called Vulcan's Throne, which dumped lava into the canyon, creating a really cool gigantic formation right in the middle of the river called Vulcan's Anvil, as well as the rapids that were created by the water rushing over these lava beds.
    TONS of gorgeous and famous sunset/sunrise photos have been taken there, and there's even a super clean campground within a mile of the rim. Check it out!

  33. For your next trip to the Grand Canyon the camp ground across the street from the grand canyon brewing company is a nice camp ground. We stayed there for memorial day this year.

  34. You guys really like the brewing Co eateries. I think your going to persuade my wife and I to try more of them. What great views!

  35. Been to the Grand Canyon many times, drive out to the west end before stopping, take the free bus to the east end and walk back!
    Go early, and don't go November through March…..too cold!
    You MUST visit the North Rim of the Grand Canyon…..less traveled and it's beautiful! You'll love it!

  36. You guys captured the Grand Canyon so beautifully! Thank you for sharing your experience and for flying with us. 🚁 If you need more birthday ideas, you can always fly with us again— next time over Las Vegas, Maui, or Kauai 😉

  37. Maverick tours is a cool name, but I'd search for AIRWOLF TOURS….lol. Probably don't exist. Happiest of Birthdays Tara! Love the videos and thank you for letting all of us adventure with you two great people. Awesome videos every dang time!!

  38. I'm watching this with my family. We went there this summer. My wife and I got tattoos and 10 in 1 Tattoo next to that bear sculpture in Williams. We had a blast. it was great to see some of what we did in your video!!!

  39. Thanks for the great comments about our little town of Williams. We knew you were in the area back in the spring as we recognized the lake in the background of your Lyme disease awareness video. (Very well done. Thank you Tara). We are really happy you enjoyed your time here. Try coming back in late August next time. Temperatures are moderate and it isn't as windy.

  40. Great another RV channel. Why are these mobile con artists video's keep showing up in my request box. Quit spamming me!!!!! Not buyn the FAKE lifestyle or any swag either.
