Two Cowboys



COME TRAVEL WITH US AND MEET THE LOCALS!

"When you get, give. When you learn, teach!"

Who We Are


We are Traveling Cowboys that produce entertaining travel-related promotional and informational content. We feature local people, small businesses, unique products, amazing destinations, worthwhile causes, and exciting events.

We seek out "local knowledge" of where to eat, where to drink, who to meet, where to stay, and what to do to avoid the typical tourist traps. We show you the real people and their unique maker-type businesses.

Please join us as we aim to entertain you weekly with new stories in the hope that you will share our experience with us as an armchair traveller or meet us on the road as we introduce you to our places and "our people". With us, you learn about inspiring businesses, the people behind them and their amazing destinations.

Our Mission


We entertain and inform our followers for free on social media, through our blog posts, and on Patreon.

Tourism-related businesses, communities, and entrepreneurs who want to be featured by us are our patrons. Our promotional value is worth a lot to these people and small businesses. When we promote them, we bring much-needed tourism, customers, and business to smaller communities. Patreon helps us to give destinations and local businesses a hand in their marketing and promotions.

Our goal is to keep the traveller, informed, entertained and educated about great experiences in unique destinations and to provide an affordable promotional platform for small destination businesses to meet new customers.

Background


We left the cubicle, stepped off the mortgage train, took the red pill and dropped out of the corporate "rat race" in January 2016. Since then, we've become vandwellers, social entrepreneurs, and digital nomads. Today, we tour North America and New Zealand while re-inventing the art of living and promoting interesting local businesses to travellers and people like us.

Why We Do It


Professional video and good online content production cost thousands. It is often out of reach for most tourism associations and small business operators. It means the "real stories" about destinations and their businesses go untold.

We take a novel approach to reduce the cost substantially and put it within reach of businesses, associations, organizations and individual operators to have themselves showcased by the Traveling Cowboys. All the contributions we get through Patreon are pooled to help fund our mission. At the same time, we bring an alternative perspective to what it means to have " local knowledge" about a destination.

We focus relentlessly on producing engaging and entertaining content for anyone that share our interests.

Please become a patron if you want to be featured by the Traveling Cowboys.

Our videos are published on YouTube, and our writings and photos on this Blog and Social Media.

On our trip, we give local businesses and makers a promotional hand. It showcases their work to our ever-growing audience. Our content promotes our people. In turn, they become our sponsors and our patrons. They give us the financial means to tell the world about more of them. Because they sponsor us, we wear their clothes, walk in their boots, put on their hats, drink their beer, have their coffee.

Our people's voices are growing faint in the face of globalization and ever-increasing rules, compliance, and regulation. It is hard being a small business or manufacturer in the western world. Some of our towns are waning and disappearing as a result. The simple principle of successful community is under threat because we are losing the knowledge of who we are, and who our neighbour is.

We need to know more about the people around us. Those that provide us with our products, food, employment and take care of our needs. We need more information about the world near us.

Our purpose is to showcase the value and role that Producers and makers play in our various communities and society overall. Our people are awesome, and someone needs to tell their stories. By telling their stories, we promote these people, businesses, events, and associations.

People do amazing things. There is a positive Producer story in every town, and we want to tell it. We will share with our audience:
  • Who are these fantastic people?
  • What do they produce?
  • What motivates them?
  • How they started?
  • What keeps them going and inspired?
  • How their communities are involved, and who benefits from what they do?

What We Do


We travel and tell stories through professionally produced and entertaining online content.

After 25 years in the corporate world, and running the "rat race" we are now full-time dedicated to our cause. We are perpetual travelers and storytellers. See where we've been here on our map.

We are always on the hunt for incredible people, businesses, and places. The people we feature make deli meats, architectural woodworking, beer, chocolate, roasts coffee, cereal, ice cream, software, tools, and much, much more. Our community news cover events, markets, and small businesses. We produce content weekly. 

The people, businesses, events, and associations we feature benefit from an enormous amount of marketing and promotional exposure from the Two Cowboys through:
  • Video: See here.
  • Photography and Blogging: See here.
  • Social Media: See here.
  • Shopping: See here.
  • Experiences: See here.
  • Online Reviews.
All the proceeds from our earnings are plowed straight back into covering our costs for traveling and promoting local communities and Producers. We will be traveling, meeting, eating, learning, and producing stories about our journey. You will be able to track our progress on this site, and through our YouTube channel: Two Cowboys & A Camera and Facebook Page. With our help you learn about inspiring businesses, the people behind them and their amazing destinations.
