    The videography and drone footage is amazing nice job.

  2. Jeremy Porter on September 4, 2021 at 6:14 pm

    Loving your videos! Me and some buddies up here in central Indiana started bought our first kayaks last summer and have so many plans for this summers adventures! Needless to say, our group has doubled in size this year and now to scout out some river camping in the Midwest…

  3. DT TV on September 4, 2021 at 6:16 pm

    Your intro definitely set the tone 🔥

  4. jaimeparadise on September 4, 2021 at 6:17 pm

    Could you please share the river name, access points and places to park with other kayakers??? Nice video but no kayaking info. Please share

  5. RaisedByWolves on September 4, 2021 at 6:18 pm

    "Rig to flip. Dress to swim." Secure your gear.

  6. Pilton Jones on September 4, 2021 at 6:19 pm

    I wish the videos were 10-20 minutes longer! So good!

  7. Steven Flores on September 4, 2021 at 6:20 pm

    What month was this when y’all went?

  8. Kamo Katfish on September 4, 2021 at 6:23 pm

    LFG

  9. Joey D on September 4, 2021 at 6:26 pm

    Are you kidding? These guys are holding their paddles backwards! Also, their hands are way too narrow on the shaft.

  10. czycling on September 4, 2021 at 6:28 pm

    Living in Washington State now, but I miss home … The Texas Hill Country!

  11. John on September 4, 2021 at 6:28 pm

    I love the Medina river! I still want to try the Llano and Devils. I had a stroke 4 years ago but I think I can do it now. Fun!

  12. Melissa Forbes on September 4, 2021 at 6:29 pm

    Hi from Northeast Houston. I love your videos, very informative! Thank you

  13. Scotty Hall on September 4, 2021 at 6:30 pm

    BRO!!! now my wife is on my butt to get a trip scheduled because of this video. Im curious though where yall put in? Where did yall take out? how far did yall get the first day? approximately where did you find that excellent island? sorry to be so needy, i just respect what yall are doing, ask the pros!!!

  14. Md Nazmus Sakib on September 4, 2021 at 6:32 pm

    You’re awesome! I am a big fan of your kayak adventures! Excellent videos!
    Can you please also add the date/month, start, and endpoint of your trips in the details. It’ll be really helpful for the rookies like me to plan a trip. Thanks in advance 🙂

  15. T Oadaly on September 4, 2021 at 6:34 pm

    So dumb question, how did you get back to your vehicles?

  16. O G on September 4, 2021 at 6:35 pm

    Ever been unexpectedly flooded out of any of your island camping spots?

  17. Blake Holmes on September 4, 2021 at 6:36 pm

    How pretty. I live close to the Ocoee and Hiwassee rivers and we get out often and paddle. Thanks for sharing this, a great video of an adventure in a beautiful place.

  18. Alpha Patriot on September 4, 2021 at 6:36 pm

    Thnxs for uploading and sharing

  19. Josh Azinger on September 4, 2021 at 6:37 pm

    Great video!

  20. eveutube07 on September 4, 2021 at 6:37 pm

    I really enjoyed the video. I smiled to the end. I’m 76 and on my bucket list is to do a kayaking and camping trip on a river. So far I have only kayaked on large lakes. Wish I had started kayaking much earlier in life. But it’s never too late.

  21. Htown Moto on September 4, 2021 at 6:41 pm

    What cfm was the river at in this curious because it looks better than any of the times I’ve done it and I’ve gone at high and low this looks like the perfect flow

  22. Hugo Barrón on September 4, 2021 at 6:43 pm

    where in Texas and whats the name of the river please?
    and if you need any spetial permit to camp? and go on the kayak?

  23. Scott D on September 4, 2021 at 6:43 pm

    What settings do you use on the front GoPro?

  24. Chris Arevalo on September 4, 2021 at 6:43 pm

    Love your videos and have watched almost all of them. I hope to take my own trip one day soon.

    What was the air temp on this trip? I have a feeling you guys can handle colder water than I can! Those rivers are cold in the summer! Don’t you guys get cold being wet all day?

  25. PowWow on September 4, 2021 at 6:44 pm

    What stunningly beautiful footage! I am now a subscriber. The Medina River is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing.

  26. With Wilk on September 4, 2021 at 6:45 pm

    I love your videos, but you never tie your gear down 😂 If I flip, everything is tied down to something, even my water bottle is on a leash. You don’t wana end up shits creek without a paddle.

  27. kent koehler on September 4, 2021 at 6:45 pm

    Why don’t you guys use water skirts

  28. Vsqueezy on September 4, 2021 at 6:47 pm

    Where would I park and enter if i wanted to go here? I cant find info online.

  29. Shillin Hite on September 4, 2021 at 6:48 pm

    When things are tough it’s nice to be able to watch a video like this with people just getting out in nature and having a great time in a picturesque environment. Thanks for sharing your joy with the world.

  30. Brad Strawn on September 4, 2021 at 6:49 pm

    beautiful video. I love yall are doin it on some cheap kayaks too. No need to break the bank to have a good day.

  31. Nadia Shafira on September 4, 2021 at 6:50 pm

    Masya Allah indah dan jernih airnya andai di indonesia ada apalagi adanya di madura

  32. Jose R. Chavez on September 4, 2021 at 6:50 pm

  37. Steve Story on September 4, 2021 at 6:57 pm

  38. ISAAC ALVAREZ on September 4, 2021 at 6:58 pm

    How do you guys go to your cars again? Does someone left you at the top and drive river down to catch you guys? (Meaby dumb question)

  39. Charles Stewart on September 4, 2021 at 7:01 pm

    Why do YouTubers open with “what is goin’ on”?

  40. Robert Morris on September 4, 2021 at 7:04 pm

    Love canoeing or kayaking the Texas hill country. It’s a beautiful trip.

  41. Chad Freeman on September 4, 2021 at 7:06 pm

    really surprised that you dont have more subscribers. The videos are great and the editing makes all the difference, brilliant editing. If you were a more regular uploader you would probably have hundreds of thousands of fans.. Look forward to the next video!

  42. Katrina Kilburn on September 4, 2021 at 7:06 pm

    Medina River is my happy spot.

  43. Garza S. Laura on September 4, 2021 at 7:06 pm

    Amazing video !
    Well done

  44. Taffada Russell on September 4, 2021 at 7:06 pm

    This looks amazing thanks! I’m in San Antonio visiting and thinking of moving from Michigan and this is what we do in Michigan in the summer. This is the stuff I live for so glad to see it here and close to San Antonio makes me feel this move is right

  45. Brade Edwards on September 4, 2021 at 7:07 pm

    Gatewood,..great video man! But….what creek is this and where in Texas is it? It would be helpful to know that info. Thanks!

  46. Muhammad Sattar on September 4, 2021 at 7:07 pm

    Bro, when am I going to get to come along? I’ve watched enough videos. Time for the real deal.

  47. Andrew Elek on September 4, 2021 at 7:07 pm

    what do you guys drink? u seem to pack pretty light so im guessing u filter?

  48. Armando Ruiz on September 4, 2021 at 7:07 pm

    You recommend the inflatable kayaks for these kind of river?
    I plan to travel to Texas and make this kind of adventure but I worry about where to park cars if we’re camping for several days or if we’re only taking a car.
    Your chamber is awesome!

  49. Ryan Campos on September 4, 2021 at 7:07 pm

    I have a fishing kayak would yall be ever down to fish around north texas ? i am mainly around lake lewisville trying to find fellow kayaks to hang with.
