Update From WHERE? River & Grilling

Update From WHERE? River & Grilling


well hello world you are not going to
believe where I am right now take a guess take take a guess you’re
probably wrong oh yes the official Cologne of jaja jaja I’m here in Georgia
guys I’m here at Keffer ban Kevin’s favorite spot he’s from these parts well
sandy bottoms campground yeah could not get a waterfront site they are all
booked all six of them up there there’s like seven that aren’t but
actually have access to the water like my own private spot let’s walk right
down there so see there’s my RV right there and here’s the Tallulah River
beautimous it’s a very form day it says 91 but feels like 99 so very humid here
in Georgia never in my wildest dreams that I thought I would be in Georgia in
the summertime that does not fit my whole chasing 70 degrees but I just come
down soak my feet in the water up to my knees there and then I kind of feel
totally cooled off and I’ll do this like every 30 minutes now it just doesn’t get
much better than this this area of Georgia up here near the Smoky Mountains
of Tennessee this area is the only place in the country I found that reminds me
of home so much so to be here and see green moss and and ferns and – the the
temperatures and everything this is one of the only places in the country where
I feel at home might wear out where I grew up and so this is really refreshing
right now it’s a good little reset but I know you guys have lots of questions
because I am well off of Lincoln Highway we’ll get to it just take a chill pill
send all of your hate mail to me Eric Jacobs one 4-6-3 yahoo.com it’s gonna be
okay I love the fact that no matter where I’m at in the country what time of
year what happens if something happens or an opportunity arises I can change my
plans at any time now I know the world following me doesn’t like that because
if I don’t stick to the plan then people get really stressed
and they want to voice an opinion and all that but I just say get used to it
and I don’t mean that in a mean way it’s just guys this is my life and Lincoln
Highway is still the route okay so I am about ten hours south just not believe
I’m here right now in the in the southeast and summertime it’s fine
as I mentioned I’m gonna have to be a little vague because some things have
happened some changes have happened and I need to be very patient I’m gonna be
here for about two to three weeks still I can’t give away too many details right
now because I don’t want this to fall through but what’s going on here
involves the RV and no don’t even throw out rumors or anything because you have
no idea what’s going on no idea it’s a good thing though I promise you yeah but
I just have to be patient and we are just going to make this up as we go so
for right now we may stay here five or six days it’s 15 bucks a night’s
beautiful and actually don’t have my phone it’s inside but I was texting with
campervan Kevin I’m showing some pictures and talking about this place
and then randomly mid-conversation he’s like what wait how are you texting me
from soggy bottoms campground in the Chattahoochee National Forest like dude
the booster the Wi-Fi the cell phone booster now this is the first time that
it’s ever given me signal when there was nothing nobody gets any service out here
except me I literally went from no service to two bars of usable 4G LTE
service like in string Netflix texted people send pictures I was surprised I
was not expecting to get service out of nothing that’s not what we boost is
supposed to do it’s just supposed to amplify what’s argue there so pretty
cool little bonus and that means that for the next few days
I can I can stay connected to what’s going on in the works
and yeah so if I need to leave at the last minute just put the bike back put
the awning back up and we’ll head out of here if I need to until the the other
thing is I still had the delay on my video so don’t if you’re watching this
right now don’t come out to sandy bottoms and did I call it soggy bottoms
I might have don’t come out here and look for me cuz most likely I’m not
going to be here I will have moved on to the next phase of what’s going on here
in Georgia but I’m still gonna shoot out a video
every other day and be uploading it from right here – – just to keep things going
man I am so so excited but one thing that happened when I got here yesterday
was the camera system and all of my stuff that runs off my inverter quit
working it wasn’t even on this guy that I got in December in Texas the pure sine
wave inverter from Amazon this is power tech on don’t get one of these guys I
know they sell a bunch of them it only lasted six months I opened it up it’s
got four thirty amp fuses in here that are all good there’s no reason for this
to not work anymore but luckily I saved my old Schumacher 750 water put that one
back in it’s not pure sine but it’s working and it works great I’m bummed
about it but big ol honkin piece of paperweight trash right there I’m gonna
do some research and find find another pure sine because I like it it’s better
cleaner power and it’s quieter where that 750 runs that fan all day all night
no matter what this one only runs it when you put a like a heavy load on it
so I’ll fix that later but I got it covered I’m glad I did not throw away or
donate or give away the Schumacher inverter let me see other updates here
going on oh I made a a Best Buy order so I got to get to Best Buy here in about
seven days I’m going to pick up a new camera accessory one that you guys have
been waiting a very long time for and that is a stabilizer that is right I
love everything about this camera and they now have a stabilizer that will
hold seven pounds it’ll hold a DSLR heavy lenses the shotgun microphone on
top have the flip out screen everything
stabilized in one unit it’s the last step I can really make to have the best
videos possible I’ve cleaned up the color saturation and the exposure and
all that kind of stuff I feel like I have fine-tuned the m50 down so
hopefully here in a couple videos I will be showing you that piece of equipment
and you will not be getting a headache from the blurred corners background
shakiness that goes on in the videos just something I want to do I personally
want to do it took me a while to get there but yeah soon what did you see what was it a bug
Georgia bug okay what kind of bug you don’t know you want to tell him about it
what do you know an ant I’m sweating are you sweating well you’re not even
sweating you’ve met all this fern whoa what is all this okay I’ll get the comb
all right Jax is all taken care of it’s about that time I go back to the river
and dunk real quick be back with you in a minute oh man I
might have to switch it up and actually go all the way in the water here at some
point later I don’t know how you guys deal with the moist hot humidity that
comes with the heat in the summer around here that’s just a whole different
element that it makes you feel sticky all the time granted this area isn’t
isn’t bad there’s one drawback to my setup and that’s that I’m not getting
any solar so I mean I can’t even run the fans I mean I’m not getting any solar
maybe an amp but I’m in the shade but that also creates a lot more cooling
inside the RV naturally it’s not sitting there baked in the Sun in a parking lot
but in just like back home I get Margaret McKinney I will have to run the
generator and the speed charger for about two to three hours a day just to
maintain the DC battery so I can still operate the things that run on DC inside
the RV but still there’s there’s just nothing like it
this is of this a perfect spot to spend five six days and I love it I love it you know and if one
of the water sites opens up here it’s gonna be easy for me to put the awning
away real quick and move I may move down to a water site I don’t know the
forecast says it is gonna rain several days but it’s not gonna rain all day so
I can probably put up with it and now it’s getting dark the Sun has set and
the Flies are out I’m getting ready to close up shop for the night it still
does not rained so I really lucked out on my second day here with no rain
thankfully watching some Vikings here on the TV because it’d be a raining good
out there nothing like eat Mountain nature right hmm oh man
trying some new stuff following a guy on YouTube obese to beast on YouTube he
shares a bunch of these really easy recipes for eating a little more
healthier and all of them like like this one I’m gonna get four meals out of what
I just cooked so that the chicken the broccoli and the rice four meals out
that which is great and it’s under four dollars a meal which is a fantastic deal
oh I think I forgot to mention got a Riverside campsite now yeah I was just
over there hanging out and all of a sudden the people just left at like 3:00
p.m. from the Riverside SWAT like okay like less than seven minutes later I was
over here I brought the motorcycle over parked it to kind of block the entrance
and reserved it and then seven minutes later I was over here yeah can you guys
see the mist the fog on the water it’s kind of hard to see but there’s no fog
or mist anywhere except for right on the water like all the way down the creek
that’s kind of creepy but yeah just because you see green on my plate Here I
am not changing everything it’s still gonna enjoy a pizza like once a week and
another stuff but hey it’s fun to change it up sometimes mm-hmm I actually got
some awesome news tonight everything is still moving forward as planned so I’m
really really excited with what the future could hold discuss some great
news tonight man I’m really enjoying life I really am guys have a great night Jackson I’ll see
you in a couple days with another update from Georgia bye guys

  1. I'm so happy that you are back in Georgia. It's so pretty and yes I watch campervankevin channel and he has stated that is one of his favorite places

  2. Nice job Eric! I really want to know the surprise. I think you'd do great on the Discovery Channel too.

  3. Lincoln Highway will still be there, love it you are laughing at hate mail so healthy, can’t Wait to hear why you’re in Georgia?

  4. Beautiful site but the humidity plus heat would be a deal breaker for this California wuss. Lol. Glad you and Jax are doing well. Fingers crossed that whatever’s coming down the pike goes well for you!

  5. Lmao soggy bottom was in that movie with what’s his name Who married the Middle Eastern woman and they ve since had twins, I think. This is the way my friends and I communicate (we’re all over 70) can’t remember shit…..

  6. And you're right, I was way off on guessing where the heck you were! That is one heck of a detour. But sounds like good things are coming! Keep eating those greens Eric, you shocked 3/4 of your watchers with that meal… 😉

  7. 70 degrees today in the Upper Peninsula today LOL! As for changing your plans…it's YOUR LIFE and the US is still a free country. You don't even have to keep posting videos so anyone who thinks they have a right to tell you what to do is wrong. If you want to be in GA then good for you 🙂 Stay cool and safe travels Eric.

  8. wow YouTube does not want me to watch your videos. This is the second time i have had to re-sub. Hopefully this time it stays subbed.
    you could always get a smaller solar panel and a 50 foot extension for the cords, to set them up in the sun while your rv is in the shade. They also make a small generator that you can put in running water like the river in your video, if you are parked near running water often. running water would charge your batteries 24/7.

  9. Watch those afternoon pop up storms. Not far from my neck of the woods, just a little east of me. Enjoy

  10. Thanks Eric for all your videos! We have learned a lot from watching you, and enjoy your journey. It also helps that we are big Jax fans as well! 🙂

  11. Eric if you're trying to lose weight I got a helpful hint I put 1 or 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in a bottle of water 16 oz or more I went from size 20 2 size 16

  12. I hate that feminist bullshit in viking show. My ancestors did not have women fighters. Women aren't capable if fighting.

  13. Fly by the seat of your pants! I think its great when you change up your plans. You'll get back to lincoln hwy.

  14. I heard that The Travel Channel has contacted him, apparently their headquarters are in Georgia. Time will tell….Best of luck Eric and Jax!! XOXOXO

  15. Shouldn't there be fish in that river, looks inviting, in SE Texas the heat level close to 3 digits in the shade, other parts of Texas have been reporting 3 digits daily. Thank heaven your are in a COOLER location. if you have any issues with We Boost, send a message to John of the Jade and John Show, he used them when trucking, as well as their former home in Tennessee, now they are semi-retired & managing several condos at an undisclosed location on the Gulf Coast.

  16. Halleluyah on the stabilizer. I love a bit of suspense. Can't wait to see what lies ahead on this visit to Georgia.

  17. Looked like a very healthy meal. Jax was great as your sidekick in this video! Can't wait to hear/see your news!

  18. Paper plates are bad for the environment. You might consider getting real dishes even if they are plastic.

  19. there's a rumor that Nomadic Fanatic may be heading to Atlanta to talk with The Travel Channel about doing a show for them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mAjeX0oN33o

  20. Are you going to stop and see Big Dog ? If you do tell him to make more videos !!! Miss him…

  21. Eric I hope you have done well with all the horrific thunderstorms we have had in Georgia and Florida. ♥️to Jax

  22. I'm always cracking up when I see Americans eat: Fork left – knife right – cut meat – put knife away – put fork in right hand – eat.
    Can't be any more childish and ineffective, right? Y'all grew up without parents?

  23. Welcome to Georgia!! If you go to the fireworks at oconee park- take your bike😀🎉… Jax saw a lizard!!! 🦎

  24. Awesome video Eric & Jax! Beautiful sceneries, greeneries & river. Great home cooked meals. You are blessed🙏🏽👍🏽

  25. If you come up here to the NC Mountains in Western North Carolina, you can have all that beauty with temps in the low to mid 80's 🙂

  26. Good to see you eating healthy, looks delish….cant wait to hear your good news.

  27. Your cooking made me hungry. Very nice, healthy meal, congrats! What's going on with you? Enjoy your de-tours, I wouldn't want you to turn into a regular travel channel 😉

  28. Eric,we watch your videos all the time. We were wondering why your new camera seems to be overexposed. The whites are really bright. Do you have a way to control the brightness. The greens seem to be fluorescent. Sorry about the complaining.

  29. * Lovin' the detour.
    * Nothing beats falling asleep to the sound of water weather it be rain or creek or both!

  30. Wow Eric. I'm impressed. I was hoping to see the day when you eat green healthy stuff but never expected it to see it so soon. Well done. Yes, will add years to your great life and save money

  31. Eric, Do you know Aluminum foil should never be heated with food?
    Cooking directly on aluminum is connected to Alzheimer's and ALS, per lots of science experts.
    Please, look it up.

  32. You can buy chicken tenders & cook them in the pan with a little bit of olive oil (healthier than that spray) & your seasonings in just a few minutes. 3 tenders would equal half a breasts you cooked in the oven. One package of tenders should give you 3-4 meals.

  33. Keep up the great work! I really enjoy your channel and whatever you do and wherever you go is good for me. You give me great ideas for my own travels. Thank you very much!

  34. i love you shows and the places you go that way i can see them and see if i would like to try and go there you are awesome you are cool.
    theres time i wish i was with you.

  35. With Eric & Jax ….we NEVER KNOW….that’s what WE LOVE ❕
    It’s YOUR LIFE …you got that right ❕

  36. Eric life is constantly is on the change. WHO cares where you & JAX are. GO life is an Adventure when nothing is tieing You to one Area. WE just enjoy seeing the scenery & you taking us along for the ride.. THAT'S the best part constant change life would be so boring without that.. SAFE TRAVELS

  37. Love to see the healthier foods! I lost a ton without exercise with 2-3 bran muffins in mornings. Can make them peeled overdue apple, dead bananas or canned pumpkin with some pumpkin pie spice added. Is just like banana bread! I use mostly apple sauce instead of eggs and oils to cook…Just mix it up to a slop and cook in muffin tins til done. Toothpick comes back clean…Is like power food! Eat as many as you want for breakfasts. Got me great results with no exercise.

  38. You need to make the investment into a Green Mountain Grill the model Davy Crockett would be perfect for you here's a link, https://greenmountaingrills.com/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI6Minlr6Z3AIVWbjACh3oOg__EAAYASAAEgIoOfD_BwE

  39. Dude, I camped at the end of the sandy bottom campground , same time you were there. Said hello and told you I'd check out the channel. Small world huh!

  40. Glad you came through North Georgia. Beautiful nature everywhere. Next time you roll through put Blue Ridge on your list if you can. See the swinging bridge and nice easy hike to Falls Branch Falls, double waterfall, off Aska- I think road is Stanley Creek in heart of Chattahoochee National Forest. Anyway no shortage of all the nature your heart desires. Lots of friendly people too. Stay safe.

  41. I was born and raised in the foothills of Mt. Rainier and for the last 25 years I have enjoyed the foothills of the Smokies. I agree with you on the likeness, WA of course has taller trees and more moss, but TN/GA area is so lush and full. If the humidity wasn't so bad it would be perfect! Enjoying watching your travels, thanks for all your hard work and unique view of quarky roadside attractions. Blessings and safe travels!

  42. My Baby is living in Georgia She loves it there ! Peace Great videos as always . Keeping it interesting for us all . I am trying to win a RV for my son so he can get out and see the country he can be "Come Along with Eric 2" I hope we win . Fingers Crossed

  43. Next time you're in NC drive from Boone to Tennessee. You'll be on Beech Mountain. So green. So pretty. Rivers, scenic outlooks, cool even in the summer!
