    Loved the video. I live in Georgia. Last week June 10th 2022 to June 19th we went on a road trip. Rented an RV and visited 20 states. Had a great time. Road trips with family are amazing. Coolest place was probably Maine and Niagra Falls. Spent over $1000 in gas was no fun. Keep up the wonderful videos. Go team puppy and kitty

    Just as Believers go to church,those who worship the god of the flesh,those who go to those adult shops instead of getting it on the internet are going to their "churches" they are gathering together to bring glory to satan.You may laugh at my answer,but as a person who has become Born Again, I now understand what is up. With that said,I do really enjoy your channel,exploring God's wilderness, thank you.😁

    The guy could have murdered his "friend" beforehand & called in search & rescue to look for her as a cover. That would explain why she vanished without a trace & even dogs couldn't pick up her trail. Because she was never there.

    This is a great movie, and so far this is the best video that I"ve viewed from you and your production staff. I'm from inner-city Chicago and I really enjoy watching your videos. Thank you for your consideration concerning politics and other social issues, you do a good job of keeping your deeply personal feelings out of your narration and that makes the video palatable for people with other ethnic backgrounds. You and Suzie make such a great team and the rest of your team is so professional that most viewers won't realize that they are there. Great work Luke, Suzie, and company, and thank you for sharing your experiences. I plan to get back out there soon. Peace.

    Great road trip video across a big piece of our great country. When I traveled the entire Route 66 trip with my wife, 2 kids and a mother in law, I had a lot less fun than you two. We also kept track of broken down vehicles, so I thought it was funny that you did also. We also found Chevys in first place, but not near as many Jeeps.

    Hitting an armadillo with your vehicle doesn’t hurt the vehicle any more than any other animal that size. You realize they don’t have a shell, right?

    There is never enough parking at the trail heads in Colorado. Some are only big enough for 2 cars and the road isn't made to handle the people parking on the side. But the trails are usually nice.

    Hi Luke and Susie, sorry I'm not going to watch the two hours right now (I will later). I like and watch your videos, keep them coming (I just found this one). I look at videos like yours from an emergency preparedness, comfort, safety and cost effectiveness stand point, not just for vehicle camping for one person. So, I will just mention my initial observation and issues with a lot of videos like this. I know that people are somewhat stuck with what they have (car {sub compact to full size}, truck, van, SUV), at least until they can make a change that better suits them. My Pick-up truck purchases have always had a carpeted Leer topper similar to yours (for shelter), with the "BedRug" bed liner system. I have always purchased the standard 6'6" pick up truck bed length ALWAYS. With two short people, the ability to crunch up and fit in a short bed truck, where the bed is shorter than the occupants is almost an impossibility long term (more than overnight while waiting for a rescue, or just camping). The BedRug bed liner will keep you from having conduction issues with the cold metal truck bed and is easy on your knees (we are older). You might want to consider a longer bed on your next truck, you will instantly appreciate it, if you need to lay down (especially if there are two of you). So I do not need emergency fuel, alcohol, propane, butane, or electric, for heat (that can run out prior to you being rescued), in the winter months I keep TWO surplus military ECWSS in my truck (one for me and one for the misses). The ECWSS (Extreme Cold Weather Sleep Systems) are just a fancy acronym for a 3 layer sleeping bag set up that is rated to MINUS 40 DEGREES BELOW ZERO (F), with proper layering. If you end up with an emergency brake down or being stuck (like what happened in a blizzard in Atlanta some years back and a recent event in Virginia), the ECWSS will keep you totally comfortable and warm as toast without needing to rely on a heat / fuel source that can run out. I will not try to compare or compete regarding gear (you are probably much better set up than I am), but I usually learn something from these videos.

    Watched this last night and it made me think that I can't imagine driving1600 miles to do an overnight. Did like the show but too many miles for a short backpacking trip.
