    Who are Kara and Nate?!
    Watch our documentary here: • 100th COUNTRY DOCUMENTARY
    Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, we got married 2013 and were super “normal.” I was a teacher and Nate started a small printing business from the spare bedroom of our apartment. We discovered the world of “travel hacking” & became obsessed. So after 2 years of obsessively saving $35k and over 2 million miles and points, we sold our cars and apartment and left home January 10, 2016 for a “one year” trip around the world. Our goal was to see as many places as possible before we ran out of money and went home to “normal life.” We started this travel vlog to share our experiences with friends and family, but quickly fell in love with this lifestyle and did everything we could to keep going. 4 years later, we achieved our new goal of visiting 100 countries and all 7 continents. We had no plans to slow down, until 2020 forced us to ;) Which is when we bought a converted van to start exploring our own country for the first time. Van life 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 not afraid of heights, I'm afraid of plummeting to serious injury or death. I'll stand in the roof of a 1000 story building. But probably not go near the edge unless it has a big guardrail of some sort.

      @Joe McKim So you kinda are afraid of heights :D I'm the same way. As long as there is some sort of barrier or guard rail I'm fine. Cut that out of the equation and I'll be hugging the ground faaaar away from the edge.

    Love the way you support each other! Next time you do a Via Ferrata, always have your two carabiner's facing in opposite directions when you clip onto the wire. If you were to accidentally fall off, you could risk having both carabiner's open at the same time. Placing them in opposite directions protects you because it provides an extra layer of safety and stops the risk of them both opening. I work as a Via Ferrata guide in the Italian Dolomites. Thank you for sharing your adventures with us! : )

      My heart was in my throat the entire time they were on the ladder and going up past it. I am terrified of heights too and I could just feel my own heart beating a mile a minute, even knowing they made it through. I was even nervous when they were standing by the cross because it seemed so close to the edge. I love all their videos and seeing adventures through them.

      I love this so much! I was a competitive equestrian for years and I would always be so nervous and never felt “ready” to move up a level. But somewhere along the journey I saw a similar quote saying you’ll never feel ready, you just do it scared. And i told myself that over and over and eventually went to national level (was never a winner lol but I did it and survived which is what counted for me). Just do it scared!

I started watching your travel vlogs in 7th grade during the Trans Siberian Railway series and completely fell in love with you guys and your videos. Now, I’m a senior in high school and have probably watched every single one of your videos at least twice! You also inspired my love for travel and it’s one of the reasons I have decided to go to university in Prague next year! So, thank you for all you do. I hope you guys know how much your videos mean to your followers, even the younger ones :) -Anya Martin from Eugene, Oregon

      There is a (steep and not easy) hiking path down from the peak. But I strangely enough find walking down a difficult and very steep path significantly less scary than hiking up. One reason is that going up you add the physical exertion of going up the equivalent of stairs in thin air to the psychological fear of slipping and falling.

      Their videos really are a blessing to so many who for a variety of reasons would have no other way to experience these adventures. Their dedication to bringing us along for the ride and providing such an immersive experience is just amazing, and I hope they see your comment and know just how much we appreciate it.

    I have an odd phobia - I fear watching people fall from high places. I avoided watching this but I’m happy I did - because you two are absolute LEGENDS. Like how on Earth did you not only climb that damn ladder but also produce such beautiful videography?!? I’m in utter awe at your accomplishments! Very well done. I still wouldn’t do it, but I admire you both.

    I was literally anxious and sweating just watching this video. You two are seriously amazing and make me want to step out of my comfort zone even more (definitely could never do this) you guys just smiled through the whole thing even though you were terrified and the constant encouragement and validation made me want to cry. Love you guys so much.

    You two are so amazing. Climbing that thing is one thing but filming while climbing and flying a drone to boot. You make beautiful vlogs. What next??? I love you two.

    what an experience! smiling along with you the whole way.. well, maybe not the whole way 😛 We laughed a bit too hard at Kara reaching for the tickets and they were behind the screen 😂 proud of you both. I, Aimee B the great would have smashed this too, but Craig nearly cried just watching it haha! GO TEAM!

    You're both insane, but in a good way. You couldn't pay me enough to do that. I can't even climb a ladder onto my roof, let alone one that's suspended between two mountains with a drop that large. I was holding onto my seat watching those POVs. 😱😵 Well done!

    I honestly have not ever watched a video where my heart was beating out of my chest so much. You guys are authentic, adventurous and kind souls and I have adored watching your epic adventures over the years. But more importantly I love watching the character you have as you approach life. I feel like I just ran a marathon watching this 😅

    These routes/trails with fixed cables are called “Klettersteig”. I think he explained it well…it’s a mix of hiking and climbing, usually in terrain that requires fixed cables or ladders in order to be “hikable”. In Europe Klettersteige are considered harder than hiking but easier than technical mountaineering or climbing. It’s a rather safe option with the extra thrill.

    Seeing everyone is so impressed and shocked about it makes me think I may be a bit different. I'm 14, I have done the climb and to be honest I wasn't even that scared to hang from the ladder.

    I’m just watching this adventure and want to thank you for the totally awesome and crazy climb you did. I get to live this through you two.
    Kara, you are so incredibly brave, you and Nate have to be the best support system ever. There’s no way I would do this now however in my younger I probably would seriously consider it, but 35 years ago it wasn’t on anyones radar I knew. Please do remain conscious of your limitations and remain safe. Sending love and appreciation for your U tube adventures! ❤

    You have officially crossed over from UAclipsrs to Thrill Seekers. One of my favorite videos! The 360 camera shots were amazing. The drone shots were SUPER epic. You guys are cray-zee, very brave and full of talent.

    A Japanese tv show covered this “ladder to heaven” and I’ve been wondering what the traverse is like up to and around the area would be like. Thank you so much for giving the in-depth look into the journey!
    I would 100% do this but I don’t know how my 156cm height would handle some of the courses…

    I usually skip through vlogs because it's mostly boring but this...THIS WAS EPIC. I was at the seat of my pants the ENTIRE time. Thank you for filming this. You guys are so inspiring. One of these days, after 1000 hikes/climbs up other mountains (ha!), I hope to build up the courage to try this.

    Wow just wow! Just watching this I have that jelly feeling in my stomach from heights. Be very proud of yourselves because that takes an incredible amount of courage and mental gymnastics to keep going. I certainly wouldn’t be able to do it.

    I’ve watched numerous videos over the years where influencers do exciting, and sometimes dangerous activities for their channels. And then there’s you guys that always do take us on these awesome, very unique, and sometimes dangerous adventures. What’s really great is that you take us to spectacular places that most of us would never see had you not taken us along. Although you make these videos as a source of income, and as great way to see the world, but I can tell that you really care about the quality, and entertainment value of your videos, and always strive to make them as good as possible. Here you are, hiking up the side of a mountain while hooked on cables, but regardless of how difficult it probably was, you guys took amazing videos of each other climbing. It’s simply amazing what you do to entertain us week. Thank you!

    This is my favourite video of yours so far and that's saying something. This was absolutely sublime to watch, as good as anything out there on any platform right now. Even though you're clipped on, the difficulty level and some of those ascents were spine-tingling! Much love.

    Y’all inspire me so much. Especially you, Kara. Lots of love to Nate too, but girl the way you push through fear because you know the end result will be so worth it never ceases to amaze me. You’ve helped me get outside my comfort zone and have experiences i wouldn’t have had otherwise. Thank you all so much for sharing your journey with us, I hope you know just how much we appreciate it. Keep being you, keep shining!! 🥹✨❤️

    I think people know if they can do certain tasks like this. And I love what you guys do and just now found your site and have subscribed just to watch you. Been to Austria but never ever would attempt what you do. And that is fine with me because I can enjoy watching you and feel the thrill of just watching you at my age of 74. It's all good.
