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: us-first.info/player/video/fNp7qWubdm2pm5c.html), 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. 😊🎥🌎

Hey guys great videos and we followed you for a year now, ( I just saw we weren’t subscribed but we fix that now lol 😆) We admire your dedication wittiness and great sense of finance management ( we know what you have done is only possible with amazing financial discipline and right investment) so my question is do you reinvest your hard earned money and if yes what do you invest them if that is not a to much of a personal question. Thank you and keep doing what you are doing

I've watch a few of your vids, and very much enjoyed your 'Bunker' tour! Interesting and fascinating... Question: I'm really confused and surprised why you would suspend your tour and drive 19 hours just to receive a vaccine shot that is likely unnecessary for people in your age group? It's astonishing how much exaggerated or demonstrably incorrect information is disseminated by the media re. the C-19 virus. There are 5 medical professionals in my family, including my father who was Medical Director of Pfizer Corp. My nephew is Chief Surgical Resident at a downtown hospital in a major city in the NE. His hospital was NEVER severely impacted by the virus at any time. No patients in the hallways, no shortage of ER beds, treatments or ventilators, and no reason to panic. There are three other med pros as well, and ALL of them, have explained in detail that if you are under 55, and in generally good health, the risk to you is 'statistically close to zero'. In fact, you may be MORE likely to suffer complications from the vaccine than you are to become seriously ill from C-19. So, it's surprising that people in your age group are so committed to the vaccine, but even more surprising that you would drive from ND to Nashville to receive it. I am older than either of you and have NO desire to contract C-19. But I'm also cognizant of false promises and the unbelievably inconsistent 'claims' and contradictions coming from the NIH and CDC. And what's worse, the WH seems to have NO clue what their guidance is. I'm not a 'virus denier', so please no nasty responses. However, I am able to make my own judgement based on the facts I've received from the pros in my family and others I know who have detailed knowledge of the vectors that spread the virus. I am very fortunate to live in Florida where life whet back to 'normal' after only eight weeks last year. By May 15th - one full year ago today, we were mostly reopened! NO mask requirements here of any kind! It's highly unlikely either of you would contract the virus basely on your 'lifestyle' alone...and I mean 'alone', as there are only two of you in a van. But it's far more likely that if you did test positive for C-19, you would not become ill or suffer significant symptoms, unless you have a weakened immune system or other co-morbidities. I offer NO criticism. This is a personal choice, and I respect your decision, but the information I have and the research I've done strongly suggests that your hasty trip was unnecessary - unless the primary reason was to attend the party! In which case I'd agree. Much more important to spend time with family...imho.

I know I cried when my husband was able to get it, I cried when I was able to get it, and I cried again when I realized my kid is going to get it. Happy emotional tears. So ready to have some sort of normal back.

I'm so sorry for you both!!! The FDA did not approve this, it won't be finished with final testing until 2023! This was fast tracked for the "emergency". For over 10 years they have been trying to get approval for M-RNA "vaccines". (it is not a vaccine, BTW, it provides no immunity). The reason these gene changing shots could not be approved is because EVERY TEST ANIMAL died! EVERY SINGLE ONE!!!! They did fine in the lab, but as soon as they encountered a new virus they became hyper immune, meaning their bodies attacked itself making reactions much more severe and they died. It took approximately 2 weeks. That equates to humans to a year and a half! There were no animal studies this time, do you know who is taking their place? You are!!!! This goes completely against the nuremborg code. Did you hear about this from the person that gave you the shot? I'll bet not. The insert for the moderna "vaccine" is completely blank. There are over 1000 lawyers and 10,000 doctors based in Germany that are starting the nuremburg 2 trials for crimes against humanity. You really should have used common sense. You are young and healthy and this virus has a 99.99% survival rate for people like you. I guess there is nothing to be done now. You will soon be regreting this. I'm so sorry! I really am!

I'm late getting caught up on the videos but I'm honestly tearing up with joy seeing you guys not just mention getting vaccinated but showing your excitement to do so and how easy and pain free it is! I live in Canada where its still a total nightmare trying to get vaccines but we're finally starting to see some progress in getting at least one dose of a vaccine into a good chunk of people, so hope is on the horizon!! I can't wait until we can get back to travelling and I can hopefully run into you while travelling in the future, that's the dream for me!

Kara: I'm the same age as you and female and I would just like to warn you to be ready to rest for 24-48 hours after your 2nd pfizer dose. I just had mine and I was out of commission with flu-like symptoms for 24 hours straight. The side effects are much more intense for young adult women, but its 100% worth it instead of getting the actual disease. My flu like symptoms started about 6 hours after my end dose and I was 80% as messed up as you would be with the actual flu. Stomach cramps, severe body aches, low fever, very exhausted. You'll be okay though, I'm so excited to be vaccinated and so happy you are too💕💕💕💕💕
me, looking at that first map, as someone that just got back from a ring road trip around iceland................... guys, you need to go ASAP. we had the whole place to ourselves! there were 2 other cars in the parking lot when we visited skogafoss, for example. the process to get in was easy enough, and getting a PCR test in iceland to return to the US was very simple as well. i REALLY want to see this video!!

also you could try and put magnets at the back of your sliding drawers, one on the back of the drawer and one on the back wall of the cupboard, so when you close the drawer the magnets hold the drawer closed but once pulled by hand it releases - its not a stand alone cure but it will help keep your drawers closed in addition to your existing measures.

instead of avoiding -4 think about passive heating, insulation and also some sort of drainage that will revert the residual water from the tap back into the holding tank, an empty pipe cant burst from expanding water/ice.
