    Happy Sunday! This is the FINAL episode of the California road trip series! We go from Temecula to Joshua Tree, which is hands down one of my new top travel destinations. Comment if you have ever been! As for the next few weeks I am home in New York City until the end of 2019. Next weeks video is a look at what kind of apartment $7,500 / month gets you in Manhattan!


    SORRY Erick I only AGREE with you on Highway 1 and JOSHUA tree n.p. as a MUST see in CALIFORNIA. California has BETTER and MORE beatiful places than what you showed on your 3 part video

    Another Great Video Eric absolutely loved it!!. It's saddening to see the same state being ravaged by such WildFires..Praying for the souls who lost their lives to the fires. Wishes U have a Healthy, Happy and Life filled with Love. U really inspire me to travel the World ..Me being an Engineer get too little time to explore will surely make it point to do the same. Cheers Eric. Waiting to see New Vlogs

    I moved from CA this year to Indiana to take care of family and this series really makes me miss it so much. I've done all the things you did and loved them all. Odd you didn't hit Yosemite though. It's glorious. California is the most gorgeous state of all.

    can you please take me with you on one of these travel videos? I't like to go to the US, 'cause I've never been there and it would be cool to go there with someone that has experience and is as calm as you. 😉

    Thanks for the cool video. I was there in Joshua Tree 3 weeks ago, been there many times cuz I got this green color decal for unlimited entry to any National Parks. I went off-roading. It was crowded so I camped at the BLM land outside the park.

    Lol I'm so tired of seeing videos of people touring joshua tree and the surrounding area and not mentioning the scary or bad parts.
    Yeah the desert is beautiful and that's literally the only thing I miss about living in that horrid place.
    A good video would also mention that there are not ANY places in the park to fuel up or to get water. Many people underestimate the desert and MANY people die out there every year. Especially in the summer months when it gets to be over 100°s. You HAVE to stay on paths. The two biggest reasons why people die there so often is because they didnt bring enough water or they go off path and get hurt. There are a few body dumps every year (when they can be found). You also have to watch out for cougars, coyotes, rattlesnakes, scorpions, centipedes, black widows, etc… And I really want a video that mentions to watch out for tortises and to teach how to interact with them. Like the proper ways to pick them up. If you do it wrong they could lose their water and end up dying.
    Also the towns are the worst part about the area. They are FILLED with tweakers. What makes up the town is tourists, tweakers, illegals, military, and the retired. Not many normal people. Occasionally someone famous will be spotted in town.
    I as a local born and raised, do NOT reccommend going out and about at night. I think one particular story that happened about a year and half ago will explain why.
    There is a fast food mexican resturant in old town called Castenadas that was 24 hr. Idk if they still are or not. They had only one person working and a pair of illegals came in robbed the place and then shot the man in the face. They weren't content with just robbing him. As far as I know they werent caught.
    Also I know many girls there that have been raped. Most were in middle school.

    Look. I mean this mainly as a warning for everyone that watched this video and is like oh my god this place is cool I gotta go there. Do deep research before going somewhere like this place.

    If anyone has any questions about the area I will gladly answer 😁
