In Episode 268, Adventure Bandits Talmange & Ashanti Grace describe their online platforms

Today I am interviewing a couple of Adventure Bandits who have been RVing for several years and actually enjoyed an opportunity to compete in the upcoming season of RV Unplugged.

Talmange and Ashanti Grace have been RVing together for more than nine years after realizing camping in a tent isn’t much fun, especially in the rain. In fact, Ashanti has been RVing since she was a child living in Alaska before she moved to Ohio where she met Talmange.

For the past two years, the couple has been RVing in a 32-foot travel trailer. They got into the lifestyle after seeing their friends enjoy a lot of comforts, like a refrigerator, stove, bathroom and the ability to stay dry when it rains.

Ashanti works at a remote job and Talmange runs his own business. They take their RV on extended trips where they combine work with play.

The founders of Adventure Bandits, they have a lot of experience as part-time Workampers.

They offered a great suggestion by encouraging couples to have cell phones connected to separate service providers. That way, if a Verizon connection doesn’t work in one area, a T-Mobile connection usually does. The couple also relies on Starlink to provide internet access everywhere they travel.

To support their RV travels, Talmange and Ashanti set up a YouTube channel to teach weekend warriors how to get started in the RV lifestyle. That channel has more than 41,300 subscribers. They also started a Facebook community that now has more than 5,200 members.

The couple meets with followers at annual “glamp-outs” that includes bands or a jazz player plus planned excursions in addition to raising money or providing service to charitable organizations. Talmange and Ashanti also host up to four Adventure Bandit Bashes annually to connect with fans.

They have produced several hundred videos which show people the good and bad side of RVing, as well as recommend products to use and places to visit. The couple also tows a boat with them whenever they travel, which adds a new dimension to their videos.

They’ll be making their first appearance in the upcoming season of RV Unplugged starting May 29, and would really appreciate support from their fans.

People can connect with Talmange and Ashanti through their website at www.adventurebandits.net or on Facebook. People can also email them at [email protected] and subscribe to their @AdventureBandits1 YouTube channel.
