    Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, we got married June 2013 and quickly caught the 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 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. :)

Congratulations you two. My daughter and I ascend the dunes in Death Valley for entertainment, when she isn't working on her geology work. As you found out, we treat the desert with a lot of respect, and pack much the same as alpine trips. People don't understand you expel 2-3 times the effort climbing dunes. With the altitude, and temperature with the altitude gain, plus hauling a bear canister and water; you need to be prepared. Despite all the efforts, the rewards are amazing, and so worth it. Congratulations on all of your efforts, lessons learned, and learning what mother nature has to offer, and how she keeps you on your toes. Keep doing your VLOGS, and what you've both experienced together. My wife and I have been together for 50 years, and we continue to be amazed by things in our lives. Cherish your memories and experiences. Thank you for sharing your lives, and all the effort needed to share those moments.

1927su that’s awesome!! Yeah that elementary isn’t here anymore. The big W is still here though!! I’m originally from the Denver area and moved up here in 2010 for college and after graduating I didn’t want to move back to the city like most of my friends did so I stayed! Can’t imagine living anywhere else!! When I came here for college it was called Western State College then by the time I graduated it changed to Western State Colorado University and now I think it’s Western State University or something like that haha they keep changing it...some alum donated a massive amount of money to change the name again and build another building to add an engineering department/program to the school, which is cool they have that! But a bit crazy to me to keep changing the name! It sure does get cold here but I absolutely love the cold!! I can’t do the heat very well!

Gunnison is beautiful!!. I went to first grade there at Blackstock elementary, idk if it’s still there, that was back in 1967/68 . I remember being fascinated by the big W on the hillside , my Dad taught at western state U for a year. I think the U has a different name now. I’ve been back a few times, lots of cool ghost towns nearby. Such a gorgeous place but cold in the winter !!

Just a heads up camping gear is hard to find this year because of increased demand. Many people are out camping when they normally would go away on vacation instead. They’re pretty much viewing camping as a staycation and so people that don’t normally camp are camping this year and it all sold out very quickly. If you plan on doing any kind of camping in the future I would definitely keep your eyes peeled every time you’re in a Walmart or maybe order some and have it shipped somewhere for you to pick up. It’s gonna be hard to find in passing though.

One time at the Sand Dunes, I was sleeping “under the stars” (i. e. no tent) and when I woke up in the middle of the night there was the greatest meteor show, with meteor after meteor streaking across the sky every minute or so. I thought it must just be normal for the Sand Dunes because it’s so dark, but years later I realized it was probably the annual Perseids meteor shower. You were so close to the optimum Perseids date (August 12), I hope you were able to see them.

This was so much fun to watch! I am from Colorado and have such good memories of this place! Also the tracks could have been a bobcat as well those are also fairly common to the Dunes area. Great video!

your story really made me feel for the people thousands of years ago in the middle east who would travel by foot from country to country through the desert. props to y'all

I recommend that next time you ever go camping or hiking in a area where you know bears are, you should bring bear spray along with you. I find that it helps me feel safe out in the wild and you can use it on other animals too.😊

I loved visiting there on our 2019 vacation but good God it was so hard to walk back up those dunes after surfing down them.🏂😟😵

I've been to the Great Sand Dunes. I remember there being an incredible population of sand fleas. Sand fleas bite. I couldn't enjoy the dunes which is a bummer. Our dog didn't like the sand fleas either. He ran to the car.

Nate was making me tear up not because of the sand, but telling us how far him and Kara have come. :')

Awhh, Kara & Nate- how cool is this video- apart from the " cat scare", I'm so envious!! We are glamping " tent style" early September. ( Right on the ocean- on a 2 mile strip of beach , dunes & Conservation land! ) I'll try & send you a pic- of our last trip!🥰❤V

Love it! Haha My boyfriend is a national park ranger and did 2 summer-fall seasons at Great Sand Dunes! It was so fun to visit him and attempt sandboarding and explore the surrounding hot springs! And the fall season there was BEAUTIFUL!

Ok let me just put it out there. I've seen hundreds of travel vlogs but your's are the only ones that make me want to be a full time traveller. The only ones that make me feel like the hardships would be worth it, as I watch you conquer yours.

You don’t need bobcat spray😂 bobcats are like twenty pounds. If you meant mountain lion, you would just use bear spray for it, but again these are not mountain lion tracks.

Back in March I lost my job because of Covid and watching you both made me focus on the good things in life. I'm finally working again and had to subscribe again on my phone and now I can leave comments. Your videos are the best! Lots of love to you both! ❤❤❤
