Elisabete Garcia says:

Thank you Nate, you are inspirational. I've taken your advice on board and I'll be taking action.

Josh Squires says:

Hi Nate, me and my friend are 15 years old, still in school, our dream is to travel and without sounding too cliche, escape the norm and live a life that we want to live. Your videos have answered questions, given us ideas and provided inspiration when we thought we should just leave it. Thanks a million and keep making awesome videos. Hope you achieve all your dreams as well mate.

James Harvey says:

I loved your van conversion because it's kind of what I want to do when I'm older but if you make shorter videos like 7-10 minutes they will be much better and upload more so you get more subscribers and views. To also make your videos better is to make your voice change especially when your making a 20 minute video otherwise it will just sound so so so so so so so so so so so BORING! And make your videos more about the van and when you go to other countries to make us viewers more intrigued and exited. AND FIND BETTER MUSIC FOR YOUR VIDEOS!?
But apart from that well done on getting 67,000 subscribers in the past 7-8 months
Yours sincerely
James Harvey
