RVgeeks Cruise the Cut! RVing in England – Part 4 – Narrowboating

RVgeeks Cruise the Cut! RVing in England – Part 4 – Narrowboating

As we’re exploring England in our rented motorhome, we’re particularly fascinated by the canals and locks that criss-cross the countryside. Since we happen to be friends with David Johns, one of the most famous narrowboaters living on the canals of the U.K., we took advantage of his invitation to spend a day out on the water.

This video captures the highlight of our 3-week trip to England, so you’ll see lots of smiling and laughing as we have the time of our lives operating the locks and driving the boat.

Of course David was filming today, too, and he created a wonderful vlog of our time together on his boat. If you like our video, you will absolutely LOVE his!

After watching our video, above, you can see David’s here: https://youtu.be/996bT18C2dI

We hope you enjoy both of our videos!

Thanks to you RV Geeks I now know how to pilot a narrow boat. Believe me, I'm never going to try. I had no idea that these canals and locks were so extensive. Very enjoyable video. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Such a fascinating adventure! Each time I follow your romps here, there and everywhere I'm reminded that we only get one life to live to the fullest. Last year I suffered a pulmonary embolism and this year I recently had my first AFIB incident, heartbeat skyrocketed to 181 bpm for over an hour. I thought maybe it was my time. I reflected on my life after the incident and asked myself, Have I lived a good life? My answer was "yes" because I've never let a job or a person determine how, when, where or why I've done the things I've wanted to do in life. Your videos echo the same sentiment. Keep adventuring, keep living and most of all keep "romping" round the world! P.S. If you've never ventured through South America it's worth it.

Hi Tony. Thanks for the nice comments. Sorry to hear what you've experienced recently health-wise, but so glad to hear you feel you have, and are, living life to the fullest. We trust you're doing well, and continuing on the same way, enjoying life fully. South America is on our bucket list. Thanks! :)
