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. 😊🎥🌎

  • I’m sorry, but is either I’m getting blind or getting old! I thought you mentioned you guys traveled 20 states already, but if not mistaken I counted 21 states highlighted. I’m in NJ and I have no clue of my own states, maybe I’ll stay tuned and learn something from you guys of my state. All I can tell you of Utah, Washington, Maine, Wyoming, Arizona ,Vermont, New Hampshire and Alaska that I love the most. I’m a nature lover as you can see by the choice of states. Myself has been to 26 states so far and drove through 3 states. I look forward to your new discovery for my next adventure.

  • Columbus, Indiana is known worldwide for its spectacular mid-century modern architecture and art. It’s also the setting for the recent award winning film, “Columbus,” which highlighted the art and architecture. It would definitely be doable during COVID, since there are plenty of self guided walking tours where you can see the art and architecture.

  • You could have a mattress the width equal to the distance between the cupboards on either side using the automatic lowering system as well as make adjustments to the width of the two side seat cushions so that the mattress will fit flush when lowered. It may cost a little more but the convenience will be worth it ... you may have to cut the overhead cupboard doors in half and place hinges so you can still access the cupboards with the mattress up

We love you guys so just keep being you. I live in Boston so as much as I would love you guys to do a video here about the city might I suggest the Boston Harbor Islands they are totally spectacular and off the coast of Boston. So many people have no idea they exist let alone are open the public and you can camp on them!

  • I have another solution for your toilet problem. Buy another bucket part for the toilet. You will have two of those and then can store a full one in a container somewhere on the outside of the van (like an attachment on the back of the van, or a tow, or underneath in some storage.

  • It seems you do not like Eamons shepee to ground concept, otherwise you would’ve done that. What about an tap into the urine tank to the outside, exiting via a flat style draining; at ground surface level to avoid audible splash back in public spaces. You could even have a button on the dash to empty the tank James Bond style 👍

  • For michigan- you should visit all great lakes and do a comparison! YOU HAVE TO VISIT the Upper peninsula! Pictured rocks, Lake superior, taqaumeman falls are all so gorgeous! I did a trip up there this summer, and Lake superior was so clear and teal blue! absolutely gorgous up there!!! we stayed in a little cabin right on lake superior and overlooking into canada! There are so many amazing places to go and visit and stunning views around pictured rocks! along with some cool historical stuff as well! Long and gorgous hikes and waterfalls! feels like another world up there in nature!!! i would highly recommend!! I took a couple mile long amazing hike that ended out at Lake superior, nobody was there- seemed like it was a picture right out of that narnia beach scene!

  • 10:12 isn't the point of having a compost toilet to be able to throw you number 1 and 2 in the wild, like dig a hole and stuff? and if you are really desperate, maybe buy another bottle for the toilet (for number 1), it will allow you to wait twice as long to empty number 1. but you will have a bottle full of number 1 next to the toilet.
