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: kgworld.info/wiki/video/qtl9p5eZfGyuyJ0), 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. #Vanlife 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. 😊🎥🌎

  • that happened to me in south Connecticut almost into nyc, freak snow storm, i was loaded with my truck and horse trailer, out of no where I almost ran into an 18 wheeler that did not have working lights. I could not stop praising my husband for his good driving skills to get around it and miss it.

  • Just discovered your vlog. Glad you both are safe. Watch a marathon of your vlogs from your visit to the Philippines (I’m Filipino) until you upgrade your van. Not knowing that it was already 2:30 AM. Then got to wake up early today with for my run. Tired while running due to lack of sleep but it is worth it. Your videos are so beautiful very clear and the shots are amazing. Most of all it is very informative. Love it. Continue what your doing.

  • The most dangerous part of winter traveling in the US is your first step outside your hotel in the morning. Many proprietors are too cheap or lazy to throw a little ice melt outside the exits to keep people from slipping on icy ground and bashing their heads in.

Magnificent doesn't quite cut it. It's beyond that. The bison jams we're faves of ours. So glad to see YNP in winter through your eyes. So glad you made it there safely. Happy trails!

  • I know I’m a week late but the worst time to drive with snow if right after. There’s usually black ice and you can’t see it, it just looks like the road is wet. Then you slip and slide and that’s when the most accidents happen. I’m glad you guys are okay!

  • Been in that weather way too much in the mid west, used to drive home for Christmas every year 13 hours white knuckling it. Other drivers always were the scary part. Honestly I was more scared for you when you were in India and you talked about the drunken crowds of men attacking women. Really enjoying your van videos, maybe more than your old travel videos.

  • WI driver here with a Corolla. 1. Slow the down, like real down. 2. Take away distractions. 3. Follow somebody cautiously. 4. Use hazardous if you sense danger. 5. If you feel what your about to do is dangerous then it is. 6. If have a moment and slide don’t brake , let off the gas gently and be careful. 7. If you don’t need to be on the road don’t be.

  • I learnt alot about black ice from my dad and dang when something as big and heavy as an 18-wheeler goes off the road you know it's series btw i live in a small mountainy town in Tennessee and it gets really bad here sometimes during the fall and winter and the wildlife consists of deer,bear,coyotes,birds crows and hawks included,snakes,turtles,rabbits,lizards if i can remember correctly,fish,insects,spiders and when humans first settled this town that i live in there were elk and buffalo and wolves but unfortunately they were all driven and hunted out of the area
