  • Rolled through Kelso today and the depot was closed due to the government shutdown, arhg! Great video, as always. You do a great job of making the history around all these spots interesting. ✌️

  • Marc, I absolutely LOVED this video! I even enjoyed the music in the first part of it. Usually I hate the music in all videos, mostly because it is over powering. I hope the folks on View From My RV check it out. I'm certainly giving a big thumbs up! 🙂 Jesi James 🙂

  • Once again a great video. One question if I may…you always talk about where 'we' are or where 'we' are going. Who are the we? 🙂
    Safe travels and keep up the excellent videos!

  • You're not kidding when you said it was remote.  I brought the area up on Google Maps and there sure is a lot of nothing!  First I heard of Amboy.  The history you give sure adds to the context of the video.   

    I picked up a Roku streaming stick yesterday evening and while going through the features last night, I came across the YouTube channel.  A light went off in my tiny brain that you probably just downloaded a new video so I brought it up.  That is the first time I have watched a YouTube video on a full size flat screen TV.  The quality of your video was superb!  It was like watching a National Geographic special.  I could not have picked a better video.  Your investment in quality equipment and also your photography and editing skills sure shows. 

    I had to log on to YouTube in order to activate the channel on the Roku stick.  I believe I used my Google account.  Interesting your channel did not show me as subscribed, so I subscribed again.  Maybe you got a 2 of 1 out of it!

    On to next week and Utah ….

  • We know this area well as it is the route to the Marble Mountains where we did a lot of field work towards our BS in Geology in the 80s. Got in trouble for stopping at Roy's for gas and coffee! haha! I still have trilobite fossils from the Cambrian collected at the Marble Mtns.

  • great video again…I watched this one because in winter of 1983 I did a bike tour of the entire mohave desert for 3 months..and I remember going down to the old restored train station area. Just before you get there coming from the north there was a weird abandoned "campground" and I see on google satelite that it is still there. I camped there one nite with one very old desert rat named Obie O'brian, he was in a broken down trailer with his dog eating beanies out of a can over an open fire. I always wondered what happened to him…maybe he is still there! Anyhoo, if you use the Avenza app (http://www.avenzamaps.com ), they have a FREE geo-referenced pdf map of the Mohave National Preserve: https://www.avenzamaps.com/maps/62975
