I completely understand why you and your family decided to change your content, there really is a lot of trolls on YouTube that can make your life miserable!! I have a small YouTube channel myself, different content, and I've had to deal with idiot trolls too and it can be extremely annoying!! I just found this forum, didn't know you had it until recently so I have been asking on your YouTube channel why you had left. I just feel it would have been nice for your true fans if you had made a video, even if it was a 30 second video saying goodbye and that you have decided to change your content and for an explanation send people here if you didn't want to make a long drawn out video explaining. It was just strange how you all of a sudden disappeared without an explanation. Your last video you made had a title that said ,"goodbye" in it but you said absolutely nothing in it as to why you were leaving!

Lately, we've gotten a lot of questions asking us what happened to us. Are we missing!? Did we die!? Did we sell the channel!? Did someone get sick!? Most people are simply

Best wishes to the EWU Family. May you prosper in everything you do. Have a wonderful time with your new content!

Thanks for the feedback, but there is a very good reason we did not make a video on our reasons for changing the direction of the channel. We could not talk about this before because we needed to focus on the change and not set off a small vocal mob of "fans" who would leave negative comments, down votes, etc. 

The reason we did not make an announcement or video is that it would have caused a major backlash from a small vocal mob of angry "fans"( viewers), and we wanted to avoid any major backlash. We wanted a nice and peaceful transition where we could focus on the new content, and not have to read angry and rude messages from a small group of angry viewers on why we are wrong and how our channel is going to die.

It's hard enough trying to change the direction of a channel once it has so many viewers, and it would have been counter productive to make a video or announcement to cause a small angry mob of angry viewers to leave nasty comments, down vote the videos, etc. We had our minds set that we were going in this new direction, and that would have only caused nothing more than a distraction. 99% of our old viewers love the new content and the transition has been a major success. 

I wish some people would give others the benefit of doubt and realize they may not know what others are doing, or why they are doing it, and realize they may have done something a specific way for a very good reason. As we can see, our transition into a totally new type of content has gone very well and our channel is growing at a rate faster than we ever imagined. Actually, we have many channels now growing at incredible rates! That tells me that we must know a little about what we are doing. 

If anything,  maybe other creators who want to change their content can learn from this and how to property take their channel into a new direction. 

The most important thing for us as a family is that we have never been happier making content.

Hello @Raaben, unfortunately due to those who don't respect our copyrighted content, we are forced to keep a fairly large logo on screen. I would love to not have a logo on the screen at all, but copyright thieves would love that and we would spend almost all our time sending out takedown notices.

Long time watcher and never understood the change. Glad I found this post and I am glad you addressed it even in text form. It sucks that people on the internet can ruin family fun and make things dark. I am saddened all that caused yall to change content types but absolutely completely respect your choice to do so as you said it best family comes first.

Just popping in to say I miss you guys and gals. I liked the content with the fam but am glad to hear you are doing something you enjoy. I also understand how after doing so many explores that it can become mundane. The best explores are those rare times you happen on a place that has essentially been untouched for years. As somebody that has been out to different places those are few and far between and difficult to find, often extremely difficult to get to or find. The two least untouched spots I have been to were miles deep hikes into the sierras and hidden under the trees from satellite views.

Just joined to make sure you guys and girls were ok! Congrats on Y’all’s success! Glad y’all are well and Bob, sorry the internet crazies were making you and the family uncomfortable. Those old videos are pretty cool though. I guess for us non crazy people it was nice to see a family that interested in something that I’m interested in. Stay safe and well.

Yes there are other exploring channel and I do follow them. I do prefer the older content, I started following when it was just Bob narrating. I really enjoyed it when it the presentation expanded and  included the family. As a father of 3 teenagers I thought it was very cool that your guys did this a family unit. I was amazed that Bob had to create a video defending what him and the fam where going. I also thought is was very cool that you where able to support yourselves with your YT productions. At the the time you expanded to include the girls did have reservations since I figured the sickos would come out. I am a bit jaded.  Apparently they did and much worse then even I though they might. This totally sucks. 

I hope all is well in the new year! 

I do have to point out this famous quote from Sean Connery,  reported declaration in 1971 that he would "never" play that James Bond role again. 12 years later and after Roger Moore's bond run, Connery returned in Never Say Never Again.

Hello from England y'all!

I'm quite new to EWU, but I love your videos, both the narrated mystery ones and the family explore ones. It's a shame you've given up the family ones, but it's understandable - I think you'd probably done enough of the Area 51/abandoned cabin ones anyway. 

It'd be great to have some video updates from the family occasionally. Take care!
