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. 🙂

    For a diesel you should never ever totally drive the tank empty…always fill it up before it's totally empty..there's sludge in the tank which can jam the dieselfilter when you drive it too empty…and if totally empty there'll be air in the dieselhose causing the pump to be jammed by an airbubble…Always fill the tank when the meter says it''s low on fuel.

    I live right outside of Pigeon Forge and I can tell you that it has some great perks, not all cheesy tourist shops. 😉 Our restaurants, close proximity to amazing hiking trails and incredible craftsmen abound. You need a do-over, not just a drive through the strip!

    Hopefully when they let us out of this GULAG by Cacavida-nineteener faucihama sacapuncha…(Canada's still closed, people getting turned around) it's stupid sheit like that. Ya'll can got back to LIFE and freedom… Remember Life how it USED TO BE without communist m3dical horsesheit…..Thanks for the many adventurers … Kara and Nate make anything (anything) more interesting to watch.

    Lovely van and awesome trips, guys. But, I just must point out how worrisome it is to see you not using masks when in contact with other people and in public places. Congregating with people closely and not distancing is just plain dangerous; for you and others. Hugging is big for many of us but we just can’t hug our loved ones who don’t live with us; it’s for theirs and our own safety.

    You’re very young and you think you’re invincible but it’s just not true. We know that we’re living during a time where, astonishingly, science is not being taken seriously by certain quarters (unbelievable to me, every time I say it) but the truth is that the numbers of COVID19 deaths and infected are rising dramatically in the US.

    Nate, you said it: “Health is a crown” and should be treasured. Please take care of yourselves and show your viewers, many of whom see you as inspiration, that you are the responsible, smart, amazing duo that you are! Thank you.
