    The love you'll both feel the moment your eyes see your baby when he/or she is born will make every single sacrifice worth it. I know cuz I'm a momma and as I type this to y'all, tears fill my eyes. Y'all are in for the best years of your life ❤

    Absolutely loved this video! I loved the music you used and I loved that you talked more. Loved that you shared Thanksgiving with everyone. Mindy really outdid herself. She is just the sweetest person! You made everything so special Mindy. Dorit loved your outfit. Is that like a sleep in sleeping bag??? The little kitten is so cute. Is it Dorits? Use whichever camera you like. You can do great videos with both as this video shows. I feel like all of you are family. Love when you all get together. Only one missing was Dawn. Missed you Dawn. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you. Love and hugs to all!

    Great to see the two of you surrounded by so much love and friendship. Mindy is one of a kind, always so upbeat and kind, I bet you're both so special to her. Stay positive, stay happy, you and Jaylena are going to look back at this time and wonder how you could have ever worried or stressed when all that matters is your little family of 3. Everything is going to be okay.

    I think you should use whichever camera is most convenient for you given what you are working on and/or filming. Stop worrying so much about what people will say and just do what you need to do. If people are so shallow they can’t understand some filming methods are just better than others let them complain and just ignore them or better yet let them go somewhere else!

    We love you Isaac and your loyal followers will watch whatever you post no matter how it was filmed!

    I'm thinking your the only one I can watch build a bus. I like the fast forwarding parts. I feel your Videos are for really showing your Subs how to build a bus and not to just be filming to have a Video. Thanks!! 😎


    Hi Isaac. I like Both styles of filming. Can’t wait to see the new Family Bus! 💜💜💜

    I love the format of this vlog, Isaac. It's as though one gets a wider angle of everything. What a lovely time you all had, and Jaylena is looking radiant and healthy, and caring for the fur babies in the midst of everything else. Mindy is the glue that keeps you all together happily and cared for in her lovely home. How blessed you are to have each other as a bus community. And there's the little Bus hobbit too! 🤣
    Much to be grateful for over Thanksgiving!
    Had a good laugh about the storage that didn't fit properly the first time. Oi, the learning school of life, Isaac, and your face and body language... so typical of the human spirit. Thank you for an incredible editing job. How you all find time for everything, I don't know. Much love to you all. ❤

    Hi Issac! The go pro films great, like the ease of shooting, getting more shots quicker, but like the big camera too for some of your fabulous shots. Both are great, whichever you're feeling the day you film. Thanks for sharing Thanksgiving, we all appreciate the time and difficulties it takes to film. Keep looking forward, you have lots of viewers wishing the best for you.

    Wooohooo that'll be awesome, sending prayers he accepts the offer. So good to see you back at it and I do love your photography but when you're building I love that you can just grab the gopro and run with it lol. Sending lots of love and prayers to you and Jaylena and I'm so happy for you both on your happy news about your bus Bambino!!! Stay groovy ✌❤

  • Douglas Smith
    Douglas Smith Month ago +4

    Great idea Issac, you love building buses and you're good at it. I say GoPro all the way. I'm no videographer though. I hope the deal with "the family bus" works out. It's good to see what you're doing by staying with Jaylene and the baby...If you did something else you'd just be the same guy you were before you met Jaylene...You've "manned up" to become a father...maybe you'll feel differently years from now; but for now be thankful for what you have...Jaylene, Mindy and all your friends and your kool business.

    Hey Isaac! Been missing yall. Hope yall had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I'm hoping you get your dream bus .
    I'm amazed at how calm you are when things go wrong. That is not how some of our husbands act , so now I'm jealous of your amazing character. I'm glad Jaylena has you bud.❤❤❤🙂

    • Retha Moore
      Retha Moore Month ago

      @Leave Her Wild , I know what you mean sweet girl. My husband throws temper tantrums to the point I'm just so tired of him but, I'm 70 years old now and I can't do anything about it. I got a sucky life. That may be why I notice many things on your channel. I don't point things out but, I sure am happy for you sweet Jaylena. I hope Isaac will always be with you and our sweet baby. Love from your old Georgia Nana here. ❤❤❤

      @A Bus Life Story I'm so glad yall had a great Thanksgiving , we did too. We had family and friends this year and it was great. I noticed our girl Jaylena was a little quiet today.

    *⏩ Isaac, do what works best for you, honestly!* When the baby comes it's more important that you spend the time with your little family. Do high end when it's convenient, but *DO EASIEST most often.* I've had two kiddos. The time goes by *so fast.* Savor those moments! Getting MORE shots is *BETTER* than than making SOME perfect!

    For general build stuff, GoPro works (and then it’s all in the editing and thinking of recording with editing in mind, if that makes sense). Best wishes on the bus swap, and all that goes with it.

      Yes. Getting negative vibes . Jaylena is not herself at all. I mean puking and being exhausted from being pregnant is REAL and hopefully that's what is showing here. But, she needs to try to get happy. Stressful pregnancies are not good for momma or baby.

    IMO, for most of the videos, the GoPro is perfect. But there are a few such as your "In the woods Alone" video and the Buslife Weddings, the "good camera" just adds that something special and makes the scenery pop. Great job on this video, looking forward to more (and go lives!) soon

    Congrats to you both.Having a baby is sooo awesome! Baby proof your bus before the baby is born. Baby proof everything and build a nusery in the 🚌 too with the crib bolted to the floor rather than under your bed. I'm a grandma....raised 3 sons that's why I advise a nursery/crib.

    Felt it was a good video. Gopro did the job. Uses what you feel good about. We just enjoy you all watching you fix and explain how and why you doing what you need. I am praying the bigger bus comes through for you all. Good project for the both of you.

  • Denise Harris
    Denise Harris Month ago +1

    I like both formats! This one has a very nice flow and gives a great view of the bus build and your movements through the day. But I also like your upscale photography using your better camera too. You have a great eye for catching good angles for great shots. So I say use your intuition and give us some of both!! Trust your gut on when to use which camera! We will watch!!

    I enjoyed the Thanksgiving festivities although I didn’t get any of that delicious looking food. I love turkey stuffing and gravy. I could fill up on good homemade stuffing and really great gravy. Amazing everyone used to love stuffing and mashed potatoes and turkey with gravy, but nowadays it’s got to be Mac and cheese instead of stuffing and turkey and gravy. I make a great seafood turkey stuffing and gravy and everyone wants my recipe when they don’t realize it came from Grandma. I love these holidays but hate the effects of all of that good food we eat even the nuts the fruits cakes and pies. Then I go into hibernation to get rid of all of that gluttony I forced myself into eating. Well as one grandpa used to say you only live once, pass the pecan pie… see y’all after I dig out of New Years’ blackeyed peas.
