We had an awesome first 3 days on our PCH road trip, but unfortunately it came to an abrupt end. This seems to be a trend in 2020...plans getting turned upside down. BUT first, we got to explore Long Beach :)

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. :)

  • That beach reminds me of La Push from Twilight!

  • I have been watching you guys off and on with really long breaks in between. The idea that you canceled your trip and allowed politicians with a political agenda to stop you and cancel your freedom of choice witch is what this country was founded on and what we stand for is unfortunate. Being that you have so many followers and your livelihood comes from this medium , the backlash from certain segments of your watchers may or may not cause problems. I wonder if you don’t see the larger picture in all this? Maybe, maybe not?

  • 2020 has definitely been the year of nope. I got permits to hike a trail I've been trying to hike again since 2015. Nope, Canada is closed. So we stayed closer to home and did stuff that I probably never would have. Luckily home is Utah, so our "stay-cations" were a lot of people's literal lifetime bucket list items. So the Pacific coast. Can I be honest with y'all? You've already seen the best part. Once you get south of Monterrey, CA and down toward Lompoc it gets really dry. When you go back to drive it again my advice is to drive south to north. The advantage is that you go from dry to wet. The disadvantage is that the ocean is on the other side of the highway so the passenger's view isn't as good. Heck, drive it both directions. Something I'd suggest is taking Amtrak from Santa Barbara to the Lompoc Surf stop and back. If you really want to see the coast it's really the only way. Do some research, but I think it can be done as an out and back day trip. Last time I was there some friends and I rented a VRBO in Oxnard by Point Hueneme. It's a must do. We also went kayaking on San Juan Island in Chanel Islands National Park. Hopefully your beef with the NPS gets settled and you can film that adventure. We did the Caves and Coves kayak trip. Another thing you should do is kayak from Tofino, BC to Hot Springs Cove. It's on my list.

  • I live in Los Angeles by the Beach, & although it was disappointing that you had to change your plans, this last week was the 1st time CA has had decreasing COVID #’s (week of February 8th,2021). It’s been horrible in CA with lots of people sick w/COVID since March 2020. California is here for you to enjoy, but better to wait until August or September 2021, after more Californians have been Vaccinated. I know you will ❤️ Southern California !

  • Will you return to national parks, soon, based on the recent DC Federal court ruling? A victory for camping & van life vloggers. Very happy for you guys, as this was initially a tremendous blow. Seriously though, blanket party for whoever snitched in the first place (I suspect another, lower quality vlogger, personally): www.google.com/amp/s/drivinvibin.com/2021/01/26/national-park-filming-permits-ruled-unconstitutional/%3famp

  • I mean it's okay to feel a little disappointed but honestly it was a little unrealistic that you thought the West coast states weren't going to do something like that when California was so locked down, but I don't even know why you bothered planning anything. I mean the governor at that time had indoor and outdoor dining shutdown. That's no way to visit California. Obviously you guys understand that you have it better than the rest of us right now, but this feels really out of touch with just how much better you've got it.

    LynnBLynnB26 天 前
  • To bad you didn't just stay on course, the people in those states didn't even listen to those Governors. Oregon is better in spring anyways, come on back soon :)

  • Well the quarantine was only for non essential travel, and not for people traveling for work purposes. I travel from Oregon to Washington every day for work and don’t need to quarantine. You guys need to realize that this channel is your work and you are helping others who are staying home and can watch your videos. Take the whole national park fiasco. Whether you like it or not, you guys are a commercial operation.

  • 1st time commenting on your channel. The outtake of not wanting to play putt putt reminded me of another CNworld channel of another couple also based in Nashville that travels all over the country and all they do is putt putt courses. I am still waiting for them to visit New Hampshire and the resort towns there including Funspot.

  • Can I just commend you guys. The mask wearing. The reminder to avoid crowded places. I know it’s a personal decision but it’s so nice to see people of influence use their platform for good. Cause you see, you both are in top shape but you are choosing to be cautious. It’s because you care. It’s because you are not selfish. You still patronize local businesses but are practicing safety precautions. I wanna applaud you guys👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

  • You should have “went for it” anyway. They are just a governmental service corporation. Those “rules “ are for THEIR federal employees- not the general public! We hire them to protect our Natural, God-given rights. This whole year has been a misunderstanding on so many levels. We, the People are the government. The State of Washington is a corporation chartered in Delaware providing governmental services for the people on the geographical location Washington, one of the 50 states in the Union. Would you let the internal ‘rules and regulations’ of the Amazon corporation or Exxon corporation dictate to you how to live your life??? It’s the same difference. You would only obey their “corporate mandates” if you were employed by them via contract. Make sense? 💡💡💡 It’s totally unlawful

My family has had a place on the Long Beach peninsula for 70 years and it is a beautiful place, its to bad you didn't go all the way up to the tip and it rained the whole time but thats cool you got to see Long Beach and Cape D. Hope you made it home safe, I'll try to tune in to more of your adventures, I sure enjoyed this clip. Safe travels

The growing population of homeless people also starts wear on you. A lot of drug problems especially in the Portland area where we stayed waiting on permits etc. Glade to be leaving that job behind.
