Enjoy the LIVE VIDEO view out the front of our motorhome.
  • Note: Our video uplink is dependent on cellular service; as such, there may be times that the signal drops out, and the video is unavailable. Other times, it may stop and require clicking the play button to get going again (i.e., as we switch towers).
  • Note: You may see a grid pattern in the video from our MagneShade. When we park for an extended visit, we install it to help with temperature control and privacy.

Where are we?

Can’t see anything

    Morning Lynn,
    Since our video is cellular service dependant, there were times yesterday that it simply couldn’t work.

    Sorry,
    Michael

      Dennis Recla · 2020-05-30 at 09:11

      Bye Bye – Have a safe trip – will be watching. Good to see you both again.
      See you later in the year ???

Lynn · 2015-09-16 at 21:16

Oh I see. Pun

Good morning Kidds!

I see your view perfectly now and I recognize the area where you’re at. That used to be all open desert when I live there and traveled from close to the UNLV to Wiskey Pete’s at the state line, long, long ago.

That campground looks fancy.

I’m so excited for your Tesla acquisition. You haven’t posted much since getting it. I’m assuming your busy playing with the new toy.

We are back out there looking at campers, wanting to trade the 5th wheel. Kept thinking truck camper, but now we’re in love with the new Winnebago View 24J. It has everything we want, small and potential to have enough seating with some minor additional belts on the bed, we’re thinking. A little higher in price than we planned though.

Really miss you guys. So many things to talk about. I’ll call.

Squirrel – Do you have a bread machine? Love yah, Lynn.

    We are doing well, I’ve been a slacker as far as posting. We’ve been having a lot of fun with family and seeing shows in town. The campground is fancy – we like it a lot, quiet and lots of nice people. No gun shots. LOL. The Tesla is amazing. We love it.
    We are heading to Arizona in a few days and I will post some images and posts about this visit to Vegas. Better late than never.

    Squirrel – we don’t have a bread machine, but we don’t eat bread so it’s okay. =)

Good morning Kidds. Curious how the box trailer pull went hauling Tesla? How are you liking Tuscon area? We have some friends in that area. Kicking around the issea of making a trip to AZ. Once I know I have a new job. How long are you guys planning to be in AZ? Lynn

    Lehnanne · 2016-01-27 at 14:54

    AZ is a nice place to visit. We are only in AZ for another week then we are off to Texas. We will be in NC in March – coming back for Drs appts. Staying at SHP – hope to see you guys then. Pulling the trailer is fine. We have almost got it down pat as far as hitching, loading and such. =)

        Hi Pete,
        The way I used it today is very simplistic compared to what I think you’re talking about. For my use case, I connected a Google ChromeCast device to one of the HDMI ports. With that in place, I can “cast” a tab from inside Google Chrome browser. If the apps you want to put up there are running on an Android phone, then you can cast the entire screen via the ChromeCast device as well.

        To get more than just this simple use, you’d likely need to run an HDMI cable ( or use Tiffin’s in-built extenders ) to connect your HDMI source ( presumably a computer running your applications of choice ). Running a new HDMI cable from that TV down the ‘A-pillar’ of the RV is not an easy task, but do-able.

        To get access to the TV, you need to do some disassembly:
        1: From inside the two side cabinets, remove the square drive screws holding the trim board in place, then remove the trim board (repeat on both sides).
        2: With the trim boards removed, you should see two bolts on each side, remove those to release the TV ( have someone holding the TV — it will fall without these bolts )
        3: With access to the back of the TV, you can connect any new HDMI cables as you see fit, then reverse of the above to re-install.
        Note: You can also remove the bigger trim boards covering the back of the cabinet ( the part toward the front of the coach ) for access to run more cables, etc.

        Hope this helps!

why ‘no bread’? i do very little bread but like http://www.berlinnaturalbakery.com

    Michael · 2016-02-01 at 10:33

    We strive to be ultra-low carb and non-GMO. Bread doesn’t fit well into that lifestyle… We do miss it though, and cheat sometimes.. but we usually pay for it later.

Love the video link!

William-N-Shirley Mote · 2017-03-10 at 15:14

what type of camera and set up do you have…….Love this idea. Our 2 adult children (who live on East and West coast), and not to mention our grandkids scattered across the U.S. would also like to keep tabs on us.

Thanks, love this site

    Michael · 2017-03-16 at 20:24

    Hello William-n-Shirley,
    We use a Microseven camera available from Amazon (Direct Link). The great thing about them is that the company ( Microseven ) provides free re-broadcast streaming of the camera’s feed (and it’s very easy to setup). This means that your internet connection from the coach only has to go up to their server, and then their server handles the load of however many clients are viewing simultaneously. Further, the stream from your camera to the server is only active if someone else is watching, so another bandwidth saver. Still, I would recommend only using this type of feature if you have a grandfathered unlimited internet account.

    Happy to answer any other questions!
    Michael

William (RV Gypsies) · 2017-03-31 at 06:05

Thanks Michael, and maybe our paths will cross on down the road.

We just left the area you are in! Spent a loong weekend at Taylorsville State Park (south of Lexington) and of course did all the touristy stuff in Lexington, Louisville and hit the KY Bourbon Festival in Bardstown. Next stop is Amana Colonies Campground, Amana IA for their Oktoberfest with the Forest River Owners Group. Their rally is called the FROGtoberfest LMAO. Might go on to Des Moines after that for a quilt show – or go home to the Quad Cities for a bit. We aren’t full time yet, but as soon as the house sells we are on the road! Safe Travels – love your web site TurtleHerding!

    Lehnanne · 2017-09-24 at 06:50

    Amana is on our to-see list. We are hoping next Summer to hit PNW and then across the Northern states. We’ve yet to see MT, ND and such. We’ll get there. Enjoy your meetup, love that name “FROGtoberfest”.

Mom and Dad from Texas · 2019-07-06 at 12:54

Good to see you moving around again! Be careful (of the other guy) on the open road.

Laura · 2019-09-12 at 07:22

Where are you Kidds now. I feel like I’ve seen this same video shot for awhile We are in North Dakota visiting the kids, we leave here on Monday, heading home to Iowa for a month.
Take care, miss you guys.

    Lehnanne · 2019-09-13 at 12:08

    We are in Colorado Springs right now – but leaving for NM in the morning. Are you getting to Alaska soon? Hugs.

      Laura · 2019-09-14 at 11:06

      We have decided to wait till next year to go to Alaska. I’m having a lot of pain in my left knee, going to see my Orthopedic Surgeon @ Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minnesota on October 2nd, need to figure out what’s going on. We will be heading home to Iowa for a month on Monday.

      Mom and Dad · 2019-09-14 at 11:12

      Lila Cameron · 2019-09-17 at 14:07

      Any chance you are close to Los Alamos? We’d really like to chat about water filtration system you have installed

        Michael · 2019-09-18 at 09:44

        Hello Lila,
        We’re happy to answer questions about our system. For details on the currently available systems and for any recommended installers, I would recommend contacting the folks at RV Water Filter Store. They were extremely helpful when we were researching our system.

        Thanks,
        Michael

Dad · 2019-09-14 at 11:13

    Michael · 2020-06-01 at 04:57

    Hi Pete,
    Yes, we will be live today. Yesterday didn’t work out for us as we didn’t have any cellular signal for the majority of the trip, so we didn’t go live at all. We did record the dash cam though and plan to post it one we’re settled at our destination.

Pete Hall · 2020-10-19 at 16:23

    Michael · 2020-10-20 at 06:57

    Hi Pete,
