    Oh cute R2D2!

  2. Marie Rouse on April 9, 2023 at 10:06 pm

    I couldn’t stay solitary in the wilderness. Probably encounter Bigfoot. For sure I wouldn’t go strolling without a pistol under my jacket. Just precaution.

  3. DREW on April 9, 2023 at 10:08 pm

    I wish you would get a firearm in not sure how you feel about them but just as a security measure to keep you and ole Jax safe.

  4. Off the Record on April 9, 2023 at 10:08 pm

    I just don’t understand people who litter. Does not compute.

  5. Firasse Masserie on April 9, 2023 at 10:08 pm

    That’s sad beauty nature & so much dumped trash we need to emphasize on people picking up after themselves, so it stays pretty for everyone all the time as much as possible, I LIKE WHAT YOU DID PICKING UP TRASH 👍

  6. James K on April 9, 2023 at 10:09 pm

    What song was that from the intro ? Love the 80s music by far my favorite era of music

  7. 99ETC on April 9, 2023 at 10:09 pm

    Nice dude! You’re crushing it. Happy that you and Jax are losing the weight and enjoying the cool and unexplored parts of Texas!

  8. MS FITZ'S ADVENTURES on April 9, 2023 at 10:09 pm

    Very sad people just don’t take their trash out with them .. i enjoy making night laps star photos. . looks amazing. Be safe my friend.

  9. Firasse Masserie on April 9, 2023 at 10:09 pm

    I miss Texas you make me feel home sick

  10. TAMMIE MEADOWS on April 9, 2023 at 10:11 pm

    That cassette player is too cool 😎. A bit heavy for the waist but at least it ain’t a boom box 😂

  11. Todd Ramsay on April 9, 2023 at 10:13 pm

    LOL, guaranteed Jax did not use kitty litter when the alarm went off.

  12. EveningShade on April 9, 2023 at 10:15 pm

    Hi Eric good video. I live in Oklahoma, But being from Texas, I thank you for cleaning up the trash. And showing how pretty it was after. I’ve been to a lot of places in my home state of and although usually not like this, I’m sad to say several are. I was actually shocked when I stayed in Amarillo at the amount of trash around fishing ponds and certain areas. I also avoided it in my videos but it was hard. I picked up as much as I could. It’s breaks my heart to see natural beauty treated this way.

  13. Misde Sixtysix on April 9, 2023 at 10:16 pm

    Love your heart for the land, thank you. So enjoyed this beautifully edited video, especially the night time lapse ❤️❤️❤️

  14. Judy Herman on April 9, 2023 at 10:17 pm

    Love your videography, hope you can do more in your travels. Also love your star laps.

  15. Debbie Lee on April 9, 2023 at 10:19 pm

    Don’t mess with Texas!😂😂😂Texas scorpions anyway!!❤️

  16. Phyllis L. on April 9, 2023 at 10:22 pm

    Great video!

  17. David Gentile on April 9, 2023 at 10:22 pm

    They were brought up by pigs and now they are pigs themselves. They are disgusting creatures they only think of themselves.

  22. Marshall-Benjamin Wolf on April 9, 2023 at 10:29 pm

    Had a loud R2-D2 landline phone about 25 years ago. After about three 4am calls he became a broken critter. Plastic wall splatter. Done. Girlfriend was horrified but I actually ended up sleeping good that night Cheers my friend.

  23. Salty Southern Outdoors on April 9, 2023 at 10:30 pm

    Where did you get that fire pit?

  24. Patricia Sapach on April 9, 2023 at 10:31 pm

    People who abuse the land infuriate me…follow common sense rules or stay out of the wild.. MAKES ME CRAZY MAD!!!!!!!

  25. Orange Ziggy on April 9, 2023 at 10:34 pm

    I love this video in particular bc of all the nature shots and it’s good to see you’re having a good time. It gives me hope to see that you’ve found your right path and that maybe one day I’ll find mine.

  26. Debbie Lee on April 9, 2023 at 10:37 pm

    I loooooove my alone time. I know how you feel!❤️

  27. Moon Gypsy on April 9, 2023 at 10:38 pm

    What river in Texas is this ?

  28. Susans Adventures By Susan Durbin on April 9, 2023 at 10:41 pm

    That is so awesome that you pick up the trash, God bless you!❣️

  29. Todd Ramsay on April 9, 2023 at 10:42 pm

    So you Are Scared of the chance that a robber, thief, criminal person is going to scour the country side if hopes they will find a camper to rob? That would be their worst nightmare with me. And most probably their last. I am ret-army. Homey dont play games!

  31. Ana Cristina on April 9, 2023 at 10:43 pm

    very nice

  32. Bignose Kate on April 9, 2023 at 10:43 pm

    Beautiful just beautiful!! I think I have seen you here before fishing am I right?

  33. Glenda Sellers on April 9, 2023 at 10:49 pm

    I would have to have a clean campsite too. So glad you do that.

  34. Denise Boucher on April 9, 2023 at 10:50 pm

    I love being alone. Have not seen a dole in 2 was, other than my hubby when he gets home from work. I have no problem. A lot of people do not like being alone. They have to have this social thing all the time. Not me.
    Thank you for your hard work 😓.

  35. Denise Cintas on April 9, 2023 at 10:51 pm

    I love camping alone.

  36. DREW on April 9, 2023 at 10:51 pm

    Omg I have to get that Cracker Barrel hat that’s the coolest hat I’ve ever seen!!

  37. Duhhhh on April 9, 2023 at 10:51 pm

    Bury glass bottles tin cans lots of stuff. That trash can save Peoples lives when SH The fan and many escape to the wilderness.Wish I could join You.

  38. Beverly Stone on April 9, 2023 at 10:51 pm

    Eric – I just recently found your channel and enjoy it very much. I am having to backtrack to catch up on all your videos! Did you make a video about your security setup? I would be very interested in knowing a little more about that security set up/app you have on your RV/phone. Impressed with the ability to sound an alarm after receiving an alert on the phone. Thanks,

  39. Ladyin Hotpink on April 9, 2023 at 10:51 pm

    Nice views of nature Eric it’s nice to see u get outside 😄

  40. D Kuhlman on April 9, 2023 at 10:52 pm

    "Don’t mess with Texas"…….yeah,right. Live in the state and, yes, plenty of slobs to trash the place. Sad

  41. BritZ on April 9, 2023 at 10:52 pm

    Great one. Love the night time laps. Fantastic …thank you again.

  42. jhare18 on April 9, 2023 at 10:54 pm

    it’s so beautiful…… nature ….. it’s so peaceful……. memories of Wow.

  43. Todd Ramsay on April 9, 2023 at 10:58 pm

    That trash is probably from way up river not from that campground but ut is unknown.

  44. sheng chia lee on April 9, 2023 at 11:01 pm

    Can’t believe this is USA, trash everywhere. Love your action. I’ll do the same to pick up the trash.💖💖

  45. Joshua Pereira on April 9, 2023 at 11:01 pm

    Welcome to Illinois buddy enjoy your new home 👍👏👏

  49. Jean63 on April 9, 2023 at 11:04 pm

    🇨🇦 Hey Eric, I so don’t understand why you let your followers bully you into thinking you are paranoid and crap, there is nothing wrong with keeping yourself safe and trust me, when the day comes that I can finally be in my van, I’ll be watching ALL your videos again on how to install all this fantastic alarm/security system. Thanks for being you.

  50. Todd Ramsay on April 9, 2023 at 11:05 pm
