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. #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. 😊🎥🌎

  • If this town were zoned to accommodate tiny homes and or tiny homes on wheels, there would definitely be an influx of people. It's the only thing that's lacking in this country. If you do find tiny home lots, the monthly fees are outrageous in some areas. That's like downsizing your life just to pay the same rent you were beforehand. To sell the land outright and have people either on or off grid would still bring money in. I would definitely move there at that point. I've also lived in Nebraska and the people are truly the best part of it.

  • Ok now THAT is a place worth living! No city shenanigans. I would love to restore one of those houses, good old fashioned hand craft, and keep going one by one.
