Real Estate Tips:
Make sure that any money you invest is done so with a specific goal in mind. If you just want to preserve capital and beat inflation a little, stick with money markets and bonds. If you are saving for retirement far in advance, look for growth stocks. If you want income streams, look for dividend stocks and real estate income trusts.

    After 3 fun days exploring the Black Hills region of South Dakota, we have started our trek east and first up: Rapid City! We spent the day seeing more presidents, checking out some unique sights from Norway and Berlin, grabbing coffee, seeing art, and eating Indian food. It was a fun little city adventure!

      Safety is our #1 priority and we want to stress that this adventure, and all future adventures, will be done responsibly and with the health of others in mind. Here are the steps we are taking everyday, including in these videos:

      😷Masks and face coverings. We wear these anytime we are near others outside and especially indoors. If we don’t have a mask on in a video, it’s 99% because there was no one around.
      ⏰ Exploring early. We normally start at sunrise anyway because of less crowds, but especially so with COVID. We have been starting our days before sunlight so we can limit our interactions.
      🧼 Washing and sanitizing our hands, especially after touching anything outside of the van.
      🚐 Being in the van 95% of the time when we’re not filming. The adventures we share are a small sliver of our lives. We are staying in the van all day everyday when working and the only time we leave is to do laundry, get gas, or go to the store.
      6️⃣ Keeping our distance. We are trying to stay at least 6 ft from others, which truthfully isn’t always possible (and then we make sure we cover our face).

    2. Try some tandoori chicken. It's more like barbecue style, lamb kabob is good to. You had me at curry though. One of my favorite flavors, rite up there with; ginger and fresh cilantro. So good. I think lamb is a really underappreciated meat. It's always so tender, fricken awesome if you can have roasted, oh yum. I just had lamb chops and garlic mashed potatoes last week, it was so good. Anyway peace out.

    3. I was just at the Black Hills area and watched your videos. You guys were our tour guides! We even bought food at Everest Cuisine based on this video. I stopped at the Dignity Statue based on your video too. Without it, I would have driven right by and missed seeing this amazing statue. Keep up the great work!
