Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, we got married June 2013 and quickly caught the #travel bug! We started “travel hacking” & finally decided we wanted to go travel for one year. After 2 years of saving $ and over 2 million miles and points, we sold our cars and apartment and left home January 10, 2016. We started this #travelvlog to share our experiences with friends and family, then decided we really liked vlogging and traveling, and we didn’t want to stop after just one year! After achieving our new goal of 100 countries and then all 7 continents (check out our documentary here:, we had no plans to slow down, until 2020 decided to force us to ;) which is when we bought a converted Sprinter van to start exploring our own country for the first time. #Vanlife was a major adjustment and so different than flying every week like we were used to, but we are incredibly thankful to be able to continue doing something we love every day. 😊🎥🌎

  • 7:14 interesting that a few frames were edited out that prevents you actually seeing the plunge into Nate's arm (check out his face). And indeed very strange, no needle out of Kara's arm at 7:27. Very weird.... if i was a CT i would question if they got a real vx at all and if they were hired as influencers to promote the campaign..... Check out the lady with the clipboard/pen telling Nate to "smile with the eyes". Good for them that they get to travel internationally again :-)

  • Nice weather in SD... I am getting my 2nd shot on may 20th. Pfizer is painless. If you want to to travel to LYR pls let me know. The first time I was there was in May of 1988. It is an awesome place! I am bitten by the LYR bug. It is so out of this mind cool place! How many miles does the camper have under its hood? It makes more noise than what is normal. I have a Vito, and the engine is the same in both. Stay safe, and be safe!

  • I left Prescott, AZ, two-and-half weeks ago and drove all the way back to Nashville because my son, who had flown back here a week before to visit his sibs, ended up in the ER and hospital. Now we are "stuck" here for a while for physical therapy. More importantly, though, he is safe and should be okay long-term (he also got his Covid vaccine shots while here. Arizona let me take mine out there.). It seems like our trips may have coincided with each other. I share your anticipation of hopefully crossing borders soon and seeing new places. Safe travels.

  • Multiplication is 8th grade stuff? Not in Illinois when I was a kid--it was 3rd grade stuff. And I am OLD. Just a handful of years shy of Grandpa there. In 8th grade we were learning "the new math". Instead of solving problems within our normal "Base 10" system...we were learning Base 2, Base 5, etc. It was a convoluted mess--and thankfully school systems scrapped it after a couple of years.

  • Thanks for the positive vaccine narrative in the video. The country needs more influencers to follow suit. I too used a drive-thru site and it was an awesome and well run experience. Oh, and I also hate shots, but the vaccine was barely felt! Also, grandpa teaching the children! I LOVE IT.

  • Thank you for getting the vaccine and being part of the solution instead of trying to piggy back on other people’s vaccine to get back to normal life like many folks seem to be doing these days.And yes there are questions about the potential consequences, but we know what the alternative would bring: more disease, death and financial disruption for many.

  • loved this! my grandparents are helping us build our bus conversion. time spent with them is so precious. They are both in their 80s and my grandfather is an architect so he has lots of ideas. Also he's used to being the boss so he pretty much gets his way. He's usually right, but we don't have to tell him that. lol. when you tried to do math Nate, I almost lost it. I was laughing with you, I promise. lmao! we are so used to googling everything. I understand. doing this bus build makes me realize all the things I have taken for granted especially growing up in a family of carpenters and architects. I'm pretty spoiled!
