We had an awesome first 3 days on our PCH road trip, but unfortunately it came to an abrupt end. This seems to be a trend in 2020...plans getting turned upside down. BUT first, we got to explore Long Beach :)

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. :)

Hi you guys. So sorry you had to cut your trip down the coast short. My family has had a place on the Long Beach peninsula for 70 years and it is a beautiful place, its to bad you didn't go all the way up to the tip and it rained the whole time but thats cool you got to see Long Beach and Cape D. Hope you made it home safe, I'll try to tune in to more of your adventures, I sure enjoyed this clip. Safe travels

*global pandemic exists* *travel advisory announced* “we were in disbelief” like what were they expecting I’m just confused the US is a big fat mess
In the spring if you stay in Washington you should go to mount Vernon for the tulip festivel.

I am a Canadian flatbed driver, who out there as a pilot car moving wind tower to Saskatchewan. It was a really tough time. When they put more restrictions on restaurants was the hardest for us. The growing population of homeless people also starts wear on you. A lot of drug problems especially in the Portland area where we stayed waiting on permits etc. Glade to be leaving that job behind.

Dear Kara and Nate, I've been dreaming about the crystal blue water's in central Florida. The springs and national parks look good to me. Will you two please go visit for me and let me know which one is your favorite . Blue waters , floating along at a slow pace and being able to see to the bottom anywhere you look. Bucket list!

I love that you showcased our small community thank you. This is a great video. Not in love with promoting beach driving. I’m sure if you knew more about the impact this has on the fragile coastal eco system you might not have chosen to promote it.

There is a deadly pandemic, yet you two continue to travel. Why? Have you not heard almost every governor asking people to stay HOME? I used to be a subscriber. This just reinforces the reason I unsubscribed. Have some concern for others!!!

I just discovered you last night, and I look forward to going back to watch all your videos. Honestly, I'm surprised you were able to keep traveling for as long as you did with the politicizing of Covid that's running amok in so many places. Even if you never vlog for us again, I am greatful to have witnessed your travels. I've only seen a few so far, but your bravery--climbing and sleeping on the rock face of a mountain or plummeting depths of 200+ feet to sleep in a soundless, lightless (probably haunted) cave--inspires me to face my fears with a little more gusto. God Bless in all your future endeavors. 😁🙏❤️🚐 ⛰️

None of these advisories are actual laws ...laws have to be passed.. and none of it is based on science but k whatever it makes you guys feel good to believe and just put your lives on hold because somebody on TV said something.

This site may help, (if either of you are prepared to research a bit further), to get through these troubles: sedm.org/Forms/FormIndex-SinglePg.htm#1.12_TRAINING_COURSES Browse through the index - some forms are for paid memberships but there's plenty to read for basic (free) membership. Also www.thehealthyamerican.org (based out of California I believe) may help to 'un-hinder' your travels. Don't be forced into a 'box' of compliance. Research everything, like you do when buying a camera... and keep on traveling. These are interesting times. Blessings to you two ~

Hello from the tip of the USA Key West. Found your videos on facebook and now I'm hooked. I think I'm living vicariously through you because this kind of lifestyle was my dream. Thank you so much for your vlogs! It has been a savior through one of the worst years of my life. Have a wonderful end of the year and can't wait to see where you head to next.

California Overland
The U.S. Constitution protects the right to travel and move freely within the country, so it would be unconstitutional to prevent Americans from crossing state borders. However, the federal government does have the authority to impose quarantine orders on travelers to combat the spread of contagious viruses. But we know Trump won't do that. State governments and local authorities also have the power to enforce such measures within their borders. But nearly every single sheriff in the west coast states have said they're not enforcing curfew or Quarantine laws. These governors are so far off the reservation. We went to Washington for Thanksgiving. Didn't get stopped or even looked at by law enforcement. They have more important things to do.

Wow you drove right past our house. We live on the Olympic Peninsula near Forks WA. Great of you to show those ORCA Whales they are endangered because they feed on salmon and there are not enough of those anymore. Come back when you have more time and we can show you what you missed. It doesn't Rain here everyday.

My wife grew up on Long Beach and we've visited plenty of times. Glad you found the Chowder House. My favorite spot too. Jake the Alligator Man made my youngest cry when she was like 18 months! LOL. Cape Disappointment never disappoints with its views though. We've always dreamt of moving back and retiring there, but like your video said- plans get turned upside down some times.

I live in England and some of the scenery you filmed in Washington of the mountains and the forests looked so beautiful! The only time I have been to America was in 2016 with my family where we visited San Francisco, Yosemite, Las Vegas and Los Angeles and it was INCREDIBLE! I would love to go to America again and explore some of the places you have been to lately! Love your videos ❤️❤️

Funny after watching this video, I went to St Augustine with my wife, kids, in-laws, and my mom for Night of Lights. We ended up eating on historic St George Street at St Augustine Seafood Co, which funny enough had Chowder Fries. They have local seafood and chowder fries were amazing.

I don't blame you , however I would have gone through with the plan yall have your own vehicle and or house on wheels for goodness sake the only people that are actually strictly enforcing all this stuff is Hawaii , but that may be almost to the point of soon or already overstepping federal law because HI is an actual state ... other than that , should be fine except for a few busy bodies here and there but little practical enforcement and yes, for the record I did get covid here in TX over halloween , but it passed already similar to the flu

Please come back!!! You are missing the best parts of the pacific north west. Oregon dunes will change your life! Make sure you plan a few days to ride the Sandune ‘s. The redwoods in Northern California are some of the most beautiful trees you will ever see. So big you can Drive a car through them. There are some spectacular hikes through some of the most beautiful fern covered redwood tree forest. Mendocino down you can pretty much skip just stay up north. We would love to show you around when you come back!!!!
