#vanlife #whathappened #trentandallie


  1. You just chose the wrong time to go to Costa Rica as far as weather goes. From December to late May it doesn’t rain at all. Game changer!

  2. Allie: I noticed a roundish/reddish bite/wound/mark on the inside of your right arm. I cannot tell exactly what it is. Is this something that needs to be checked by a doctor? Remember that I cannot tell what it is from your videos, so please don’t get insulted.

  3. Puree is disgusting! I never liked jelly growing up… It was only when I tried real homemade jam that I realized how homogenized and processed American food is.

  4. It is so refreshing to see people eating meat and not being ashamed. Seriously, sheesh.
    God Bless you!

  5. Try using chia seeds in with your mashed berries, it will kind of thicken it up. Plus instead of sugar you can use natural honey or maple syrup. Also its good on homemade biscuits. Yummy!

  6. Funny he would say that about chunks in his jam, Whenever I buy a jar of strawberry jam I blend it and put it back in the jar. lol I thought that I was the only one to like it like that.

  7. I totally agree Trent!!!! Smooth, no chunks. Your’s was the best description of dislike I’ve ever heard! Loved it!

  8. I like strawberry jam, which has strawberry chunks in it. Strawberry jelly is consistent with out chunks but lacks the character of the jam. I also like strawberry preserves which is even chunkier than the jam. That is a real treat when I can get it. If you don’t like chunks, then you don’t want jam and definitely not preserves. You eat the jelly and I will eat the jam and the preserves and we will both be really happy!

  9. You want jelly not jam jelly is smooth JAMA’s got all the lumps and the chunks I can tell you one thing you guys are sure funny I love watching you guys.

  10. Have you all ever considered getting a portable dehumidifier for your van? It may help with some of your issues with electronics and just make it more comfortable.

  11. Split the recipe. 1/2 with chunks. 1/2 without. Problem solved. (For more life advice call 876-5309). 🙂

  12. So let’s be clear about this… Allie almost gets killed in a freak tubing accident, but she is "encouraged" to face her fears and to go rafting again. TWICE. But Trent can’t handle chunks in his jam. Wow… you’re just not helping yourself out buddy!

  13. I just realized something; you should make a mount on the ceiling of your bed to hold your tablet (or whatever you watch Netflix on) it would be perfect! Get some Bluetooth speakers (5.1 setup from Amazon) so you can have surround sound! Heck yeah! If you needed… I could make one (tablet socket ceiling mount) on my 3D printer and send it to you! Would be honored. 😊👍😁

    Edit: reply back with some dimensions and I can get to work. Easy peasy! I can do the same for LEAW and Nomadic!!

  14. Try "Cat Crap" a wax one uses for sky goggles. I guess eye glass wax protection would work, too, but I know Cat Crap does,. It should work great in a light covering for lens then you wipe it off.
