The Toyota Corolla Wouldn’t Make It | Costa Rica Vlog 3

We spend the morning in search of hiking trails in Escazu/San Antonio, Costa Rica. Eventually we make our way to Pico Blanco with a gorgeous view of the valley.

If you’re ever traveling and don’t know if you’ll have cell service or wifi, check out the “maps.me” app. Not only does it allow you to download offline maps, but gives you turn-by-turn directions without using any data. (Note: We have no affiliation with the app, we were just REALL grateful to find it when we couldn’t get directions home from the airport.)

Meeting our Realtor at McDonald’s | Costa Rica Vlog 2

After arriving in Costa Rica, it took about 2 hours to get through customs, immigration, and pick up our rental car. Just in time to meet our realtors at a McDonald’s about 10 minutes away from the hotel.

We discussed how much land we want (3-10 acres) for how much ($20-100k) and in what areas. They gave us a list of 6 regions to check out on our own before bringing them along to see actual property for sale.

Our “Go Everywhere Vlogging Rig” for the Canon 70D

We’ve tried way too many vlogging cameras. The RX100 V was the closest thing to a perfect camera, but it lacked an external microphone jack and that stabilization just wasn’t good enough to justify $1000 dollars.

So we’re back to our trusty Canon 70D. Arguably still the best all around camera 4 years after it’s release, but just a little too bulky to carry around all the time. I set out to fix that problem with a belt clip camera holster and Rode Video Micro microphone zip tied to the side!

Cargo Trailer Camper Conversion | Pre-Build Virtual Tour

A virtual tour of our upcoming cargo trailer to tiny house/RV/camper conversion. Included is a full kitchen, Murphy bed with dining table built in, fold out shower, and expanding bathroom wall!

I designed the model in Fusion 360, a free program I think anyone interested in making things should learn, so I’m thinking about making a crash course video series.

Notify me when the Fusion 360 course is available!
