Cross-Country Road Trip In Record Time

Published by Darron Toy on



today we had some issues at the four-wheel-drive it's so money you park up past your throat so it was so muddy get out no problem there's like a trick we just like 20 minutes going a little ways and it's still locked up and then having to shift everything and select the cameras we're on the road now it's all good today we are making one stop one of six distinct effective California miles it's a long day but make it great for our save huge sandy [Applause] like 60 miles out ish we hit a batch of construction batches I thought it was a stretch of construction and there was a shift in the level and Sasquatch started making a new noise just great hi wait stop yeah nothing yeah so driving this truck is so loud it's hard to tell where it's coming from I think what it was was it's brand-new pavement yeah and it's got all the lines on it I'm thinking it was the lines on the pavement I think so we did a shift again and then it started for like two seconds and then stopped again so it was the tire all the tires are fine we thought maybe we ran over something you got stuck and maybe that's what happened and then it kicked out I don't know got stuck I don't know I'm ready to get to a campground you just sit still for a minute but now we're back on the road since everything looks good we made it I was an eight-hour day eight hours which is kind of insane you're doing really good though yeah personally she's fine I'm tired and grabs he's doing really good so we were just hustling Oklahoma City that was about 400 miles make it you're switching out of step because pulling up there he stepped on yesterday when he was trying to get drone footage it's broken since we literally pulling away from our house I hit the neighbors tree and ripped off the lighter like it was like so anyways I had to make a new piece cut out the kinked part I put it all back but the step up there was mangled yeah so every time he gets up there he almost dies because you can't use that top step okay so it's like oh maybe I should like it done on me you know as you do I was laying in bed last night it was like instead of almost dying every time I get on the roof I can swap the bottom step for the top step so any cute so fun fact we are under a tornado warning for tonight until 11 p.m. tonight I think yeah all right at least I'm staying positive we are in the middle of Tornado Alley in tornado season so either you will see this blogger you won't yes not yeah we're not dying words to live by drive drive like the wind is gonna eat you alive all right for all of you who have been super super sad about us not sharing food lately there you go it's nothing crazy a lot of people would say that's pretty crazy steak and fish yes sir for tip well you're like dark so we made it I don't think it took quite as long it was bad but when we figured out what that noise was yeah we're pretty sure that it was the AC blowing up because the AC didn't work today so it was a very sweaty car right oh my gosh hey we did make it we're safe we're good where I'm a tornado alley hallelujah everything yeah weird thank goodness for age should be thunderstorms tonight but that's okay just thunderstorms it's not tornadoes the fall game so we're gonna eat and crash we are exhausted fried we're so very weak we sound like a broken record I'm tired like sleep for a month type tired yeah so our plan right now and this might change over the next day or two but right now we're actually a day ahead of schedule so I thought is if we can push and get back to California early then we can sit and chill for a few days before our pod shows up and we can just visit and sleep and it's more sleep so we're gonna eat we're gonna crash read do it again tomorrow I'm just gonna say it's amazing what 12 hours of sleep will do for your psyche barely passed out and it feels amazing I'm like okay the world is my oyster stay weird get in for black stuff don't know this to happen it's 437 miles it's just really far breath yeah so that's our goal we don't make it that's okay it will probably go at least three degrees so we'll get somewhere in there like I said yesterday right now we're one day ahead of schedule we make it a fine ah since we're stuck in traffic Albuquerque I guess they're doing road work somewhere up there but you know how does it stops for support 20 miles we wanted to answer some questions for people that are not sure why on earth were joined California we explained it but in the various places yeah so for all the new people who aren't sure what the heck we're doing because we just bought property in North Carolina we are going to California to pick up the rest of our stuff we sold mostly everything but we put the rest of it in storage in a storage unit so this is your equipment yes exactly all of my equipment for my soap business these were the things that we're going to need to make money like you said so we toys are the kids are the toys gonna make you money let me have one that works so we stashed them obviously we can't carry that stuff or this but we knew we're going to need it in the future so we're going back to California to get that everybody who is asked well why don't you just have somebody pack it for you and ship it out we still have family coming for you so this is not just it go get our stuff trip it's also a ghostie family trip we're gonna family we haven't seen in over a year yeah so we're gonna go spend time with people everybody who's like how are you gonna do it or do it this way to do it that way we are getting a pod that was the easiest cheapest option we ran through so many scenarios why now get into renting something just driving just the truck out getting a trailer on the way till I get back ray this option was actually the cheapest surprising way yeah it really was we looked at so many things flying was actually get you mentally expensive hey wise not to mention like you know rich in your car and all that kind of stuff so what's why couldn't we have someone go out there and get her stuff and ship it to us yeah I would not trust anybody to handle my equipment my lathe alone is so heavy it very tricky to move not to mention like that's a pretty pricey piece of equipment and just something for where to get dropped or something like that we at least want that on us not on somebody else so that's why we're heading to California and I mean we are excited to see family so even though the trip itself is kind of crazy because we're we're looking forward to getting out there so now we'll just keep waiting for traffic – yeah it's crooked I'm feeling the grins it's not really good morning we are up you did not oh you're in trouble well was it good morning no it's not wait let's sleep can you tell it feels wonderful we are up and Adam early this morning today is the biggest push of the entire drive this drive is like almost 500 miles we should really break this up and do two days we shot yeah we're close enough let's just make it we we want to get there so we can sleep and sit in a familiar place a lot a campground afternoon yeah so we're we're willing to push today to get there yeah first we're doing at breakfast we're at the Williams Arizona campground we were here last year when we went to Grand Canyon would like this we liked it a lot so we are here and they have a cafe they have breakfast they're serving breakfast we're gonna go get us some burritos because why not life's too short to not have burritos okay when you don't have to cook in a trailer it's a good yes and this is quick and easy and we can get on the road quickly yes so let's go well we have made it a very long day then is actually inside crashing as well he should for all of that driving that he did today it was crazy something about the desert it's just super super windy and that makes it a lot harder plus once you get into California the roads aren't that great becomes a lot harder but we made it safe and sound here we are going to sit for the next few days and sleep and not worry about anything it's gonna be amazing I'm so excited thank you thank you thank you to everybody who has prayed for us who has sent well wishes who has given us encouragement on this drive everybody he's kept it up with us on Instagram and kind of seen where we've been along the way we so appreciate it we made it like I said safe and sound and I know that's because a lot of you guys were praying for us and cheering us on so that's it for the night I'm also gonna go crash we will see you guys in a few days once we are arrested and not zombie-like catch you guys on the next one

Thank you so very, very, very much for chronolouging this journey!! I am almost 60, and having been raised in the Northwest, have never seen the footage you have shown today. So fascinating!! I love your hearts and personalities. May God grant you GREAT rest and peace and restoration over these next few days. Prep for new beginnings is hard as we all want to dive right in! I patiently wait with you during the prep stage as I too am living a parallel life to yours and God is using you to give me hope and encouragement along the way. Blessings of rest and health and excitement for your vision and dream to come true at last!

We ended up buying a container, then shipped it packed to the gills. Once it was on our new land, we slowly unpacked as we had room, then re-purposed the container. The container is now a hay mow.

How do you stay so upbeat all the time? The pressure must be unbearable at times but you still think of your subs. Thank you for the beautiful scenery shots. America is awesome. Only been to New York, Ma and Conn. Where my brother lives. Hoping you get sorted without too much aggro. Greetings from Ireland.

We have one truck you sometimes have to put in reverse to get it to kick out of 4wheel drive.

Elize Vanniekerk · May 14, 2019 at 12:00 pm

I am so excited for you guys specially for your boys growing up on a homestead bringing back favorite memories of learning hard work perseverance and goals. Always love watching you and my prayers are with you. 🙏🏼💕

NaturzBasix Farm · May 14, 2019 at 12:00 pm

(Long time ago) I’ve found that if you put it in reverse after taking it out of 4w and give it some gas (gas on it) it helps knock it out of 4 wheel drive. Then but it back in drive. I’ve never done it pulling a camper though.

Shir K · May 14, 2019 at 12:00 pm

Glad you made it there safely! Please get some rest and have a wonderful time with your friends and family! HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!! And God bless!!

Rose C · May 14, 2019 at 12:00 pm

I’m so happy y’all made it to CA safe and sound. Rest and enjoy family time while you’re out there. Can’t wait to see what y’all will be doing on your homestead when you finally come back home.

Have an 01 F250. Have to put it in reverse sometimes to get it to pop out. Backup 10 feet or so and it will usually kick out if it is in a bind. Have had this issue on a few rigs over the years and this usually works. Hunting/fishing in and out of 4×4 all the time. In the winter at our current property in and out every day multiple times a day. Lol- the a/c just went out in my truck this week. :(. Best wishes on the journey guys! -Robert & Dede.
