Youtube sites tend to die off if they do not serve viewers' needs. DIY videos which offer good ideas will often be viewed. Bob Wells' videos are of variable (usually high) quality; youtube channels like cheaprvliving will probably survive for a long time. There are many valuable channels. What is written here will have no impact on the existence of youtube channels.

There might be viewers whose "needs" are served by critical, ignorant and/or misleading youtube channels. As long as such viewers exist, youtube channels which are characterized here as distorting honest vandwelling videos will continue to exist. Fix the human race and the problem vanishes. ;-)

Sadly, most YouTubers take twenty minutes to say ... nothing.

Bored to tears waiting for weekly Wednesday backups, so I looked up "Little House on the Road" and instantly remembered the whining guy who thinks avoiding people is a great thing...and how everyone should live in a plywood camper.   Huh

I think if I watched more of his vids, I might start seeing the Security Six as a friend to my left temple. (SMH.) Tongue
(I have often wondered if his old lady is chained up like a dog inside that little box they supposedly live in.)
Poor woman. Poor poor woman. Sad

Isn't nomadic life supposed to relieve the stress that makes you into a whiny little bi#$%?
Or is it your own baggage that causes "sniveling-whine-itis?" Hmmm...

Think I will fly a few prayer flags on this...then see how the crystals land for an answer. You know, scientific research.

DAMN this sarcasm again...I've tried sprays, powders and it just keeps coming back. (That DIRTY sarcasm!)

Now where are my meds and tin foil hat? I hear the flying saucers arriving in the distance...

Come on JD, everyone knows you can't hear the flying saucers.

I'm thinking of creating a "Hussite wagon" (https://www.warhistoryonline.com/medieval/circling-15th-century-wagons-hussite-wars-mm.html) DIY youtube channel.  What do you think? ;-)

Shhhh!
As long as they think I can, I remain King.
(I actually FEEL them arriving.)

I like Slim Potatohead's channel for the photography, which he is doing with budget gear. And AdventureVanMan for the lack of hype and mellow vibe. Bob's channel for the info. Not really into investing the time to watch beyond those three.

Ok, so I'm into it. BUT, my goal is not to make ANY money off Youtube. My goal is to make it easier for others to give me advice about my build. I don't have a ton of subscribers or views, and that's okay with me. If I can get just one person to look at what I'm doing and tell me a better or cheaper way to do it, it's worth my while. Also, I like having the documentation for myself.

You won't see any Amazon (or otherwise) endorsement links. I do talk about some bargains I've found, but I don't get anything from them.

You won't see any lunch or skimpy bikinis in my videos. You will see me drenched in ceramic insulating paint - the subject of some footage I took today. It was quite an adventure.

Overall, I think Youtube is a GREAT way to explain what I'm doing and get some help from some smart people.
