Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, we got married June 2013 and quickly caught the #travel bug! We started “travel hacking” & finally decided we wanted to 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! After achieving our new goal of 100 countries before 2020 and all 7 continents, we have no plans to slow down anytime soon, and we are incredibly thankful to do something we love every day. :)

  • It seems like quite a few people want us to be upset with the couple who sold us the van. Sure, we would rather not have to deal with these issues, but we are grateful that we didn’t have to build it from scratch ourselves, and we are still happy with our purchase. The people who sold us the van told us they have been getting angry messages. This is completely unnecessary. Please feel free to express your opinions here in the comments...We appreciate you watching out for us, but we ask that you please do not contact the original owners on our behalf.

    • I was wondering if you were kind of mad at them but going over to them and sending them angry messages is a bit tooooo far!

    • That's crazy! Clearly, the people sending those mean messages haven't seen any van lifers before because stuff like his happens all the time to people in THEIR OWN vans! You didn't buy a professionally made van, idk why some people don't get that. Eamon and Bec once had to replace their ENTIRE engine! Wild.

  • I’m glad you guys are still happy with your purchase but from how much y’all spent on it you could of made your own van with everything you guys wanted and not had tons of issues. Also the people that sold you the van do not deserve hate but they should of let you know if there was any major issues with it.

  • What kind of heater is it. I'm aware of diesel and gas heaters that are very inexpensive and come from china, and the non-china heaters are around $800. Then I saw a video about a propane heater that is amazing, also $800 but so worth it and better than any of the other heaters. Now that I think of it, I think the one you got is electric. Please clarify, thank you.

  • Excellent decision in getting professionals for the installs/upgrades. Some things are worth the cost to save you the massive amount of time it would take to do it yourself (speaking from experience with diy home renovations), and to not worry about the safety possibilities. Also, laughed so hard at Kara's "I want to smell it!" And the throwback clip to the fireball. Nate's face gets me every time

I desperately need something like this so I can go visit my relatives and I haven’t seen them forever without imposing on them because they really don’t want me anyway and I’m about to be homeless again in January after six years of having an apartment I would just love to do this would be so cool. And how bad could it be for one person

  • I was really sad to see that you guys barely even took a glance at Steamboat. That's my hometown and it's definitely one of the best places in colorado. Not going to lie but I think it has Leadville beat. Just saying. You guys missed out big time. Also, Nate, if you like skiing then come back to Steamboat in the winter. We are nicknamed "ski town USA" bc we've produced so many Olympians. Truly some of the best skiing in the world. Anyways, just thought you should know you missed out.

  • When i see this i really wonder why you did not just buy a proper RV that does not have these issues, no handles to bump into, easier to connect electricity, fill water, empty toilet etc. If you are going to buy a van to live in for a long time, why noy buy one that is built from scratch as a mobile home.

It is sad to read that people are sending angry messages to the couple you bought the van---I agree with you, that is not necessary. These issues, though frustrating, I think that you will look back on one day and laugh about it. Looking forward to your next video--drive safely! R

  • The fact that Kara feels the needs to advertise them not showering in a week like it's a good thing is disgusting. Gross! 🤢🤢🤢 if I don't shower at least once daily I feel like complete shit.

  • *This brought me to Tears!*😭😭 KJV Luke 15:4-7 4 What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it? 5 And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing. 6 And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost. 7 I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance. *Did you know there are Unfallen Worlds?* See Hebrews 1:2; Hebrews 11:3; *Jesus made the worlds (more than one)* Job 2:1-2. *Sons of God represents the unfallen worlds, Satan presented himself as the representive of Earth.* *The parable in Luke 15:1-7; represents, "earth as the lost sheep. Jesus left the other worlds and came to this earth in search of us the lost sheep."* *Jesus died for you and I. His death paid the randsom for us. Have you accepted his sacrifice? When we accept Jesus as our personal Savior from sin, we are found of Him and there is rejoicing in heaven!* *Let us by His grace be faithful to Him, so when He returns, He can rejoice with the unfallen worlds. Why? He has found His sheep (us) which was lost.* *Have you been found? If not, you are wandering around in a lost condition. It's time to repent, turn from sin and be found.* 🤔🤔 Acts 3:19-20; Acts 4:10-12; St John 3:16-17; St John 14:6; 1 John 1:7-9; Isaiah 44:22.
