Hitting 10k YouTube Subscribers
This week we hit a huge milestone on YouTube. Our Adventurous Way YouTube channel now has 10,000 subscribers, 2 years and 3 days after we published our first ever video! In those 2 years, we've published 104 videos - averaging exactly one video per week.
Back in May this year, we reached 5,000 subscribers - another big milestone that we celebrated at the time with a Q&A video.
But we never would have imagined that just 5 months later, we'd be celebrating 10,000 subscribers!
Once again, I'm so proud of Diana for the hard work she puts into our YouTube channel. Not only does she do all the editing (each video takes about 15 hours), but she also spends countless more hours trying to respond to all the wonderful comments we receive, while always striving to learn more and make our videos ever better!
But most of all, we're thrilled to be sharing our journey, our story and our adventures with so many people. We love exploring anyway, but knowing that we can bring joy to so many others who enjoy our videos makes it even better!
Our previous Q&A videos have always been incredibly popular, so we're going to do another one to celebrate this milestone.
We put a post on our YouTube Community page asking for ideas for questions, so please drop us a note there or leave us a comment on this blog post if you have a question for us and we'll do our best to answer them all in the next Q&A video, coming very soon!
Winter RV Camping Preparations
As we talked about last week, autumn is quickly giving way to colder weather. In just over a week, we'll be moving from our current spot in southern New Hampshire to northern Vermont where we'll be spending the entire winter.
Vermont has some very tight travel restrictions due to COVID, and we'll have to quarantine for 14 days when we arrive. That means we need to get as much done as possible to prepare for winter before we get there.
While there are still a few things left to do, we feel pretty good about how things are going. Our heated hoses should arrive this week, we've got a bunch of temperature sensors ready to be installed, and we've stocked up on winter supplies.
Since we've had hookups for the past month, we've been using electricity rather than propane for water heating, RV heating and the fridge. In fact, we last filled up with propane on September 22nd - over a month ago - and only this week switched over from the first tank.
I checked our electricity meter the other day and in the prior 2 weeks we had used 253kWh which, given the price of electricity around here, works out at about $3.25 per day or about $100 per month - not too bad!
