Boldly Go: The Trekers Trailer now available

The Trekers vanAs part of the effort here at Trekers to share our experiences, we have decided to start building up our YouTube channel. Part of having an active channel means having an introductory video that helps people learn more about you and what you do. So, we have produced Boldly Go: The Trekers Trailer.

The Trekers on a frozen beachBoldly Go gives a glimpse of where we have been, the things we like to do and some of the great places we have visited. Many of the locations are in Michigan because that’s where we’ve spent most of our time — but a couple of other states and Ontario, Canada make appearances, too. As we expand our horizons, we will also be expanding our efforts (and our videos) on the YouTube channel. So consider this trailer to be just part one in our never-ending trek to experience and enjoy life in new ways. We really, really can’t wait to shoot more videos and share more of our treks with anyone who wants to follow along, because, in order to do the videos, we have to do the traveling! So, please consider subscribing to our channel and prepare to have some fun with us.

When I shared Boldly Go in a Facebook group, one of the members said they found themselves trying to guess the locations, which gave us another idea. This post could serve as a guide to the video.

Below, in order of appearance, are the locations where we shot the video and, if available, a link to another blog post or video about that location or trek. (We set all the links to open in a new tab so you don’t lose your place in the list.)

Have you been to some of these spots? If so, did you have a favorite memory from that trip? Please share it in the comments below. If not, we recommend you visit those spots and would be happy to offer information and tips we learned from our trek there. Again, just drop us a comment below.

We hope you enjoy Trekers and we look forward to sharing more treks with you. In the meantime, make the most of what you’re doing and don’t forget that to enjoy life, you need to experience it, not just pass the time living it.
