Little Utah montage!

I filmed quite a bit from Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park in Utah, but I decided to just make a little montage video instead of long vlogs. If I had a chance to do it again, I'd include alot more content, but such is life. Whatever. :)

-John

VLOG Episode 13 - This isn't a vlog in my standard format. In stead, I chose to just 'show' rather than 'tell'. My first time in Utah was pretty magical and I don't feel like much else needs to be said with views like these.

More south Colorado road tripping...

This video was a continuation from the previous one in Colorado. I traversed across the southern part of colorado and over to Mesa Verde National Park. On my list of favorite parks, It's not the highest, But I'm still glad I gave it a shot and saw it!

-John

VLOG Episode 12 - Last year, I hadn't been to a single national park. On a whim, I went and saw the Grand Canyon with my own eyes and I was floored. I'm now on my way to visiting all 59 parks and Mesa Verde is my 12th.

The first video that helped my channel grow

Before I put this vlog out, my channel had something around 18 subscribers. My brother saw my video and submitted it to reddit.com/r/vandwellers and that made it grow to about 400 subs! In the grand scheme, that's tiny, but at least that allowed me a boost in the arm to keep pursuing growing the channel and putting up content!

VLOG Episode 11 - Day 1 of my loop from Denver into Utah! I drove down to the Great Sand Dunes National Park and hiked to the top of the top! It was super difficult, but incredibly rewarding!

Up at 14,000 foot!

This was an awesome day atop of Mount Evans in Colorado! If you haven't been up in the rocky mountains, you need to put that on your list of priorities! Enjoy!

-John

VLOG Episode 10 - Ascending Mt. Evans in Colorado! Was a breathtaking time. :D PATREON: https://www.patreon.com/user?u=3402762&ty=h MY TRAVEL INSTAGRAM: http://www.instagram.com/parkingwithfoalhaus MY PERSONAL INSTAGRAM: http://www.instagram.com/foalhaus MY SNAPCHAT: foalhaus MY TWITTER: http://www.twitter.com/foalhaus MY BLOG: http://www.foalhaus.com MY FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/jonathan.allen.7982780 MY CAMERA GEAR: Sony A7S mark ii Sony 28mm F2 Sony 55mm F1.8 Sony 24-240mm F3.5 Joby Gorillapod Beholder DS1 Handheld Stabilizer 3-Axis Brushless Gimbal Monfrotto Travel Tripod SUBSCRIBE for more amazing content!

The time I almost got struck by lightning

This day was terrifying. My buddy and I went on a 7 mile hike on north table mountain in Golden, Colorado. Everything seemed to be going okay until we about died getting struck by lightning under some power lines. I haven't been this scared in a long time. Enjoy!

-John

VLOG Episode 9 - What was supposed to be a normal hike with my buddy Joel and his two dogs turned out to be an enormous storm. This storm had all key elements: Terrifying, booming lightning, rolling murderous thunder and ominous clouds.

Hiking Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, CO!

Not much to say about this except that this place is beautiful. All the red rocks, the mountainous region in the background, the natural beauty. It's slightly overwhelming, but incredibly worth making the trip out if you've never been. Enjoy!

-John

VLOG Episode 8 - Who needs talking when you've got views like this? Yesterday, I went to Garden of the Gods with some friends and brought my camera along (of course). It's a short video, but a sweet one! Chill vibes.

Two video for one banger!

This blog submission is just a little highlight of a bonfire up in the rocky mountains in slow motion. The other video is me hiking red rocks right outside of Denver. Fun times were had by all and it's just confirmed more and more that I feel like I belong in natural elements! :)

-John

There's something mesmerizing about a fire but there's something especially mesmerizing about a fire in slowmo. Sit back and enjoy. :) MY TRAVEL INSTAGRAM: http://www.instagram.com/parkingwithfoalhaus MY PERSONAL INSTAGRAM: http://www.instagram.com/foalhaus SNAPCHAT: foalhaus TWITTER: http://www.twitter.com/foalhaus BLOG: http://www.foalhaus.com FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/jonathan.allen.7982780 CAMERA GEAR: Sony A7S mark ii Sony 28mm F2 Sony 55mm F1.8 Sony 24-240mm F3.5 Joby Gorillapod Beholder DS1 Handheld Stabilizer 3-Axis Brushless Gimbal Monfrotto Travel Tripod SUBSCRIBE for more amazing content!
VLOG Episode 7 - Today has been a pretty great day in Denver! Sun is out full force, barely any clouds in the sky, and I went and checked out Red Rocks! Oh, and I also go into a little detail about what's coming up in my near future.

Check out this bus!

I met a guy from Denver who built and converted a bus into a liveable area! This thing was awesome! I apologize that I didn't film it very good or very detailed. If I had to do it over again, I would have been more thorough in my filming! Regardless, enjoy! Gotta work the kinks out as a beginner filmmaker. :)

-John

VLOG Episode 6 - I got a chance to get a van tour from my buddy John! He's built this bus interior from the ground up. Pretty sweet.

First explore vlog after I got to Denver

At this point, I had just gotten to Denver and also was looking for a job. I was completely unfamiliar with the area, so I went exploring on top of lookout mountain. Beautiful sight! Also, right when I got to Denver, my brakes decided to explode and just stop working. I had to get a rental car and keep the van in the shop for a few days. That wasn't that fun.

-John

VLOG Episode 5 - Just trying out a new format for a potential weekly video where I shoot the 'shart' and talk about random things and also do random things.!

That time we got 9 ticks on us in the forest.

Right after I got to Denver, I went on a little weekend trip with my buddy Dave and his wife Jen. We did some hiking and exploring and had a great time! Shortly thereafter, we discovered that we landed in a tick mine field! It was a disaster! Check out this mess of a video! :D

VLOG Episode 4 - WEEKEND TRIP TO ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK! Join me as I get into some shenanigans in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado with my friends Dave and Jen.

First stop of the trip: Badlands National Park

After driving through Iowa, a bit of Nebraska, up into North Dakota and across the state, I give Badlands National Park a visit. Before I went to the badlands, I checked out Minuteman Missile National Historic Site. That was pretty cool to see. In S. Dakota, we had missiles buried underground ready to be launched at Russia during the cold war. Crazy times then. This underground bunker was preserved to the exact state that It was during the 60's. If I had a chance to film this whole scenario over again, I would do some things differently. But hey, that's part of the learning process!

VLOG Episode 3 - EXPLORING THE BAD LANDS! I spent a day of checking out the Badlands National Park and Minuteman National Historic Site. TRAVEL INSTAGRAM: http://www.instagram.com/parkingwithf...

Come take a tour of my Class B RV camper van!

Before I left on my epic journey, I felt it was appropriate to give my YouTube viewers a chance to get a look inside of my van. I didn't go into everything that was included in the van, but I covered the basics. Enjoy!

-John

VLOG Episode 2 - VAN TOUR Come check out my 2003 Dodge Pleasureway. It's got about 49,000 miles and it runs perfectly! Channel note: I will be vlogging my adventures on this channel and plan on uploading 2 to 3 times a week starting off.

That time I made my first official Vlog for my channel

This vlog post is my explaining my motivation behind why I bought my van, what I plan on doing with my travels, what to expect from my channel and the beauty of the national parks in the United States. It's interesting looking back at this video now knowing where I've been and seeing all of the amazing things that I've seen. Since this video has been filmed, I have been to Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado, Montana, Utah, Nevada, Arizona and California. I've traveled over 15,000 miles to boot. Quite a journey so far, but I'm far from done. Give my channel a follow to keep up with what's been going on in my life! Cheers.

-John

VLOG Episode 1 - What's my channel about? This is the first vlog of hopefully many! Over the next few days, I will be taking my RV camper van and journeying to Colorado! Along the way, I'm going to stop off in South Dakota to behold Badlands National Park, Wind Cave National Park and some other amazing sights.

That time I went to Wrestlemania

Since I was a little kid, I had been a wrestling fan. My brother Tim and I used to wrestle in the back yard, watched WWE Monday Night Raw and Smackdown religiously when able. We were obsessed. Over the years as I progressed into my 20's, I kindof stopped paying attention to what was happening in the wrestling world of kayfabe. My brother Tim however always tended to keep me in the loop on the latest happenings. We decided last year that we were going to make a trip to Dallas for Wrestlemania 32 (?) in 2016. IT. WAS. AWESOME. Here's one of my very first 'vlogs' from then. I wasn't really that comfortable in front of the camera at this point, but still, it was a great time! Enjoy!

First vlog adventure to the Pacific Northwest

Earlier this year, I bought a good camera and decided I would start vlogging my journey that was going to come to fruition. I had just finished a contract in Chicago and was en route to Seattle, WA to visit friends and a few national parks. This wasn't my very first vlog, but it was my first vlog with my main camera setup. Obviously, there are things I would do differently, but still, here it is. These next 3 months or so, I am going to be sharing 1 video vlog every single day until I catch up with real time. Enjoy!
