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. :)

  • Cougars hate people. They avoid us like the plague. The only time you might encounter a cougar is if you come into their territory or there are cubs around. They also aren't likely to snack on adult humans. Also, those tracks look too small to be a cougar's. They could be canines or a smaller wild cat.

  • Doubt people will see this but funny story about the sand dunes. Me and my family decided to go during the summer at night to look at the stars and hangout. We had about 20 mintues of fun until we heard some odd buzzing noise. It was a swarm of bitting Nats and we ran as fast as we could. (We were about 1/2 mile in) and you saw how big the dunes were. It was a warm summer night so we were wearing shorts and t-shirts and were covered in bug bites for the rest of the week. Now we laugh about it all the time.

  • To all the people that say they use a drone to get their shots instead of walking ahead and setting up a tripod, I can assure you being the owner of a drone it would be near impossible to keep it that still in those strong winds. You can also clearly see (13:25) in some of the shots that they use a tripod.

  • I love your video! I love the sand dunes. They bring me back to my youth. My son and I went on a road trip my first time driving a whole trip by myself. I can't believe we hiked it, I can't believe we drove it. My video at 7:27 There is no easy way my son told me. ( ) and I'm at your video 9:39 thinking you are way farther than I ever could imagine of getting. Props to you 👏🏻

  • It's so crazy watching this video , I was there in October and went boarding and crashed on my first sand dune, broke my wrist and had to turn around hike back out a mile to try and find the nearest ER which was 45 mins away. Longest hike and longest 45 mins of my life lol 😂 turns out I essentially broke my hand away from my arm because I crushed my distal radius and ulna bones yikes.

  • Hi guys, love the channel. Those are coyote tracks, and they naturally get laid down in couplets. Coyotes are usually very shy, and this one was probably shocked once she realized you were out there. Big cat tracks are about 400% larger, laid down evenly, not paired, and are in nearly a straight line. actually, if a person looks down a line of lion tracks they will make very slight lazy "s's", often with a tail dip alternating with the stride.

  • They make it seem like it’s dangerous/challenging to camp there. Thousands of people do it every year, many with young children. This national park is not very big and is so safe that dogs are allowed. Also, did they wait till the weather got bad to go so no one else would be there, or were they not smart enough to check the wind forecast? The park get over half a million people per year, and is not remote by any reasonable standards. Those are bobcat tracks, which are far more common in the park than mountain lions. If they did any preparation, they would know that. There are so many other things wrong with this video that make these two look stupid/weak/deceptive. At best, They sound like stereotypical tourists who have never camped before and have no idea what they are doing.
