TWITTER: @karaandnate
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. It 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. 😊🎥🌎

  • Awesome video!!! I'd love to live there and help rebuild.

  • Watching this makes me feel so warm inside. I am currently back at my parents' house cause of the panoramic (:"D) and we only use wood-burning stoves as far as heating goes, we do not cook on them but we heat up food if we don't want to use electricity. Since we own properties filled with trees, we don't see the point in spending so much money on other heating options. So every room in my house has its own stove. This video reminded me of how much work it requires to chop the wood and fire those stoves up, but doing it gives me such a sense of accomplishment, I can't describe it, really. That was a very nicely made video, good job guys, I liked your take on living in an abandoned ghost town.

  • What you tagged as Mt Whitney is actually Lone Pine Peak. Mt Whitney is the sawtooth-looking mountain directly to the right of LPP. In this shot it appears to be lower because it's further west in the range than lone pine peak, which is also a 14er and shorter than whitney by nearly 1,500ft. Fun fact: Lone Pine Peak is also the default wallpaper in Mac OS Sierra, so if you use a mac you've probably seen it many times.
