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. :)

  • But why is it called "The Groover?" Because the little porta-potty thing is a new addition to the setup. It used to be that people pooped in the ammo can. If you actually sit down on the can it will leave temporary grooves in your backside. Thus "The Groover." And thanks for the binge watch. I know you're trying to see states you haven't been to before, but I think you should come back to the west.

  • When exploring the back country trails in Colorado, you will occasionally come across very old trailside campsites, (sometimes near old structures, mine shafts ect) with old firepits used for many years back to the "wild west" mining days. Among some of the scattered old litter will be remains of old rusted cans with lead tops (that dont rust) from a time long begone. They used lots of lead in canning back then. ....and still used small amounts till 1991 in the US. Yep, miners and cowboys of the day had canned goods. Obviously today, lead was not a good health choice for sealing.

  • You're like "Lilly" from the AT&T commercials, Kara. I even enjoy your speaking commercials. You're delightful to look at and fun to hear. You should require that advertisers only you two do the ad, if they want ads on your channel. I loved the creativity of the van crossing at night in front of the K-Mart sign. Innocent understatement is your genious in these vids. Never edit your personalities out.

  • Nate, I don't know if someone has already mentioned this, but you don't have to roll up the sleeping bags to get them to fit in the sack. They are called "stuff sacks" because you can literally just unzip the bag completely, then stuff it in little by little. SO much easier! (I learned that the hard way too) :)

  • here in Sweden we have an attraction called Kållerado ... guess it should be a clever name for Colorado 😅 where you go rafting, it's so fun and I can imagine that I would have appreciated doing what you do here. but Sweden is not as cool as Colorado 😆 love your videos and that you can come with you, however, I miss when "we" go to all corners of the earth, hope that covid-19 soon calms down. Love you guys, please stay safe. Xoxo 😘
