When you think of Hidden Valley Road, you think about a movie.
But that’s not how you get to the film.
“We had to go to the remote village and go down the road and then get up the hill,” says Robby.
“There’s no real path up there.
It’s a bit like a real trail, but with rocks.
It took us two hours to get down.
And it has a really good water source. “
But theres a little hidden valley on the other side.
And it has a really good water source.
And there’s a creek here, which is nice.”
So Robby and his friends were able to get back to the road, but they didn’t know how they got there.
“I dont know what you would call it,” Robby says.
“A bit like ‘What’s up, baby?'”
But they figured it out when they took the video of the scene, and it led to a new road that has become a favorite spot for many locals.
“Theyve been calling it ‘Hidden River Road’ or ‘Hidden Creek Road,'” says Robbys dad, Dave.
“Theres no actual creek, so they call it ‘River Road.'”
Robby got a new GPS to help guide him down the valley.
But there’s more.
He now has a little bit of an adventure story to tell, and he says he just wants to get to his wife.
“It’s not about me and my wife,” Robbys wife, Rachel, says.
It is about us as a family, and that is just what we wanted.
But Rachel convinced him to go back. “
At first I thought I might have to take a detour,” he says.
But Rachel convinced him to go back.
“He went back the second time because he had to, because he didnt know the road wasnt safe.
So he went back, and then the third time, he said he had a lot of people saying, ‘You shouldnt go back,'” Robby said.
“And so I went back again, and they said, ‘Yes, we think you should.’
So I thought, ‘Okay, that’s cool.'”
And he ended up back on the road.
It started as a joke.
Robby decided to put the road back on, and Rachel agreed to let him use the creek to do it.
But he never took the creek back.
And when he went to get it, he found it all gone.
“So I had a little problem with my phone and I didnt have my GPS, and I wasnt sure if I could get it,” he said.
So Robbys parents took it upon themselves to find him a new one.
Robbys father, Dave, is a mechanic who works at the gas station, but Robby is a truck driver.
“This is my dad, Robby, and his truck, which has been around since I was a little boy,” Dave says.
He had just finished his third day driving with the truck, and when he got home from work, he looked for his wife Rachel.
“That was the day I said, I want to do this again,” Dave said.
Roby got a brand new GPS, but Dave says the first time he went into the creek, he didnt have his GPS.
So, he took it on.
He wasnt even sure what was up.
“Just a bit of a mystery,” Roby said.
But it soon became a story.
And then Robby found out it was Rachel who had gone out on the creek and had her GPS.
“Oh my god, it’s my wife!”
“She had her cellphone in her pocket and she had her cell phone in her hand, and she was just looking at the road that I had just gone down.”
Dave got the GPS out of the car, and Robby was able to start his new road.
“When I got to the spot where we had left the GPS, it had a map,” Dave explained.
“My GPS had been in a tree for a couple of years.
And my GPS was in the tree because it had just been damaged in a lightning strike.
So I was really, really excited to go in the canyon to get my GPS back.
I went into this canyon, and there was this little little spot that had been left behind, and its this huge creek.
And I had been down there with my truck for a year and a half, and the little spot where my GPS had just fallen, it was just a hole.
And so I was super excited.
And of course it was there.
And in that spot, I had found a map.
And all I could think about was, I think it is a little way to go.
And that was it.
So it was over
