Hello my name is Travis Jantzer! I’m a vlogger from Oregon in the PNW. Online I go by TJantzer. Jantzer is pronounced “Yawn-sir” because my ancestors immigrated from Germany in the late 1800s. My wife’s name is Cassie and our daughter born in spring of 2019 is named Hazel. If you watch our videos you’ll learn we love rock climbing (particularly bouldering), ultimate frisbee, road trips, diy projects, and drones. We converted a van to a camper for vanlife and take road trips when we have time. We play ultimate in the fall. Climb in the gym from fall to spring. Play Frisbee again in the spring. And play sand volleyball with our friends through the summer. I wrote a book and love writing poetry. Cassie loves watercolor painting and pencil sketching. We both enjoy cooking though she is way better at it. I started on Youtube in 2011 but did not take it seriously until 2018 and even then I was inconsistent. In 2020 my resolution is to make one video every weekend and post it by Tuesday of that week. My passion is video editing. I started doing wedding videos last year and this year got a job shooting real estate photos and video. I still consider myself an amateur, but I’m learning something new with every video.
My goals for 2020:
1 video every week
500 subscribers on Youtube
$10,000 earned from local video and photo gigs ($1000 earned.. but Covid.)

I’ll respond to as many comments as I see!

Thanks for stopping by!
I’ll see you next Tuesday.

  2. Kathy Eyman on December 7, 2020 at 9:32 pm

    Love it! What a wonderful gift! Hazel is super cute playing in it. 💦👶🏼💦

    Could you provide more info on drilling through rock. Concrete bit? I imagine some rock is easier that others. Thanks- looks great!

    Great music, really easy process. This is the 3rd video of yours I’ve seen, and I know it will lead to more

    Just FYI, This video was initially just a mothers day vlog where I thought it would be cool to explain how to make the gift I was giving. I was not anticipating it getting the views it has! But, my tutorials (which apparently I make now) are only getting better. Thanks for watching 🙂

    Great…where the water comes out of?

  10. Yet Solema on December 7, 2020 at 9:43 pm

    Wear ya seatbelt!

    I think the reason you’re getting so many questions on this DIY tutorial is that it doesn’t really have any of the DIY features of a DIY tutorial. Namely, the procedures you used for building your fountain.

    Nice water feature.

  14. AzPremium Rush on December 7, 2020 at 9:57 pm

    I enjoy watching your straight to the point videos! Thank you!

  15. Mac Daddy on December 7, 2020 at 10:14 pm

    Nice job – thanks for the idea. How often do you find yourself adding water to the basin?

  16. Mrs. O-S on December 7, 2020 at 10:14 pm

    Thank you for sharing your knowledge and skills, this is exactly what I was looking for… a rock waterfall. I appreciate the diagram at the beginning, it makes so much sense! Using a container to create a void is a great tip.

  17. Shannon Sherman on December 7, 2020 at 10:16 pm

    You mentioned using a tub, (which is what I have) would I still need a void for the water or will the tub suffice to hold the water? Thank you. great videos
