Favourite Youtubers
« on: August 25, 2020, 03:10:46 PM »
Hi Swaggers,

Lately, I'm feeling bored with my current Youtube subscription list. 

Who are you watching on Youtube lately? I'd appreciate some suggestions.  Doesnt have to be related to camping etc - but I'd love to hear who you enjoy watching on that front too!

Cheers!
Happy Camping!

Yeah Michael is great. Hopefully he might start up again, but I did talk to him about a month or so ago and he was not too interested at the time sadly :(  He's enjoying his camping a lot more with no cameras around. 

That video he did with us was awesome!

I'm enjoying Trip In A Van. A young family living the dream and travelling full time.
Very likeable personalities, they visit some magic spots around Oz. Great photography and videos too!

I think he should go down the Mark Rober (another YouTuber if you haven't heard of him) route and just aim for 1 video a month (if that), that way I think he'd likely find enjoyment in it again as opposed to it becoming a chore.

Another one you might like (with a young fam) is Trip in a Van, guessing you have already seen it though. The Way Overland was also another favorite before they got thrown in jail in Iran and then were part of a prisoner swap between the Australian and Iranian governments  :o

edit, just saw brickiematt recomended Trip in a van as well.

I have grown to like a bloke from WA called 'Wild Touring' - his wife, his young daughter and he have just set out on a lap of Aus. Still raw enough to feel real and achievable, so very relatable.

A lot of my subscription list has already been mentioned but to add a few:

- Big Oz Explorers - Similar to Trip in a Van but not as 'sponsored' as some of their videos are becoming
- Dangar Marine - For anyone into boating
- John Malecki - Ex American NFL player doing awesome woodworking
- Luke Towan - Miniature modeling. I have zero interest in taking this up as a hobby but his creations are unreal
- Colin Furze - Absolutely worth a watch if you have never seen one of his builds

Another for Bad Obsession Motorsport and 'Project Binky'.

I'm also a fan of Acorn to Arabella, a couple of guys that are building a wooden ketch on a shoe string budget and making the lot themselves, from back yard casting the lead keel, dropping the trees and sawing the timber and even making the bronze rivets.
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAiDWnTP0WB1xCp6uuUo0VA

Marty T is a kiwi bloke that buys old farm equipment and gets it going again https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCp-mnssZd4X2bgIcekaNfgA

Millennial Farmer I like too, showing the daily goings on and challenges of running a grain operation in the US. He's got a sense of humor with it.https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCp0rRUsMDlJ1meYAQ6_37Dw

They had a big storm go through Iowa last week (didn't make the news here), but some of the destruction is worth a look. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qAkr3ion2zI

And Dangar Marine. Aussie bloke with a how to fix your boat on a budget channel. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBsXuIe0nBO3Bi2JmtVk1ZQ

Probably my favorite is Beau Miles, he's a uni lecturer, but does adventures and documents them really well. He doesn't often release stuff, but its worth watching for the insights and it can change your view of the world. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCm325cMiw9B15xl22_gr6Dw

Foreman and Wilms Adventures.  Older videos from their Australian adventures.  Now their adventures in America.  The videos on restoring an old landrover are a great entertainment.

Slightly off-topic, do others think the shine starts to wear off a little as they become a bit more popular and then often little more advertorial like, I don't begrudge them making money, and they are providing me with essentially free entertainment so I wish them every success in the world, but often the more successful they get, the more they seem to push the "sponsors" products.

Also in tandem with this, is the setups they start rocking become unobtainable, i.e. Trip in a Van's latest car and van setup would have to be approaching $300K, again the best of luck to them it's about them and their lifestyle, not just made just for my viewing pleasure, but it's just a bit less relatable IMHO.

There are some successful YouTubers who from my perspective get the "sponsors" right, Mightycarmods would be one of those, they have businesses support their channel, and they are very upfront about it, they are also all businesses/products they also used before they supported them. Similarly, Tentworld helped out on one of the Seek adventure vids, and he had previously said he used them in one of his vids about pegs.
