We used Design Hill to make our logo as well as recent modifications to it. It's a pretty cool platform where you outline your specifications in a contest, then a bunch of designers will send you mock-ups to try to “win” your business. You get to interact with your favorite designers and, in the end, pick one to make your final design. If you're interested, we do have an affiliate link for them where you get 15% off: changinglanesrv.com/designhill

We get asked fairly often about how to get the music in our videos. We use EpidemicSound.com and Artlist.io for all of our music under a creators license (royalty free). We know that some of the tracks are in iTunes, but many are not. The best way to find out is to use the Shazam app or ask Siri “what's this song” (Siri uses Shazam) as the music part plays in our video. If it's available, Shazam should recognize it and show you where you can download it.

I (chad) work in IT for a large company where I've been a full time employee for 18 years. I have telecommuted (100% from home) for the last 8 of those years. Tara does all of the editing for our channel, which is a full time job in itself. Nomad life is a great fit for us and we're so happy we can share it with everyone!

Our primary camera is a Canon 80D (amzn.to/2Kr9v9O) with Rode Video Mic Pro Plus (VMP+) (amzn.to/2YWCaf6). We mount this on a DJI Ronin-S (gimbal) (amzn.to/2YU1YbD) whenever practical to get smooth footage.

For out and about stabilized footage, we use a DJI Osmo Pocket (amzn.to/2KsuBVh) for B-Roll and some vlogging. But the field of view is a bit narrow for vlogging, so we also bring a DJI Osmo Action (amzn.to/2GYxriE) for that.

We use the GoPro Hero7 (amzn.to/2KEJBhY) for some vlog-mode shots and as a secondary angle camera when using the Canon if the light is good. When we're walking around filming something like an RV show, the Canon / Ronin, and Osmo Pocket are what we use most.

On the motorcycle (Lucille), we use three GoPro Hero7s (amzn.to/2KEJBhY). One mounted in a Karma Grip (amzn.to/2Kr9JOc) (Tara manually filming), and two mounted in various locations using Go Pro Jaws Flex Clamps, as well as the DJI Osmo Action (amzn.to/2GYxriE) mounted directly on the handlebars.

For aerial shots, we use the DJI Mavic Pro (amzn.to/2KqpR2u) (we have version one).

For voice audio, we have two Zoom Digital Multitrack Recorders (https://amzn.to/2GV1tnF) with lavalier microphones.

All of our camera equipment is here in our Amazon store (changinglanesrv.com/amazon-camera-gear) also, including things that we don't use anymore (things we started out with) but still recommend.

No. See our announcement article for more details.
