We’re back in the San Francisco Bay Area just in time for a Coronavirus lockdown. All travel plans have been put on hold, but that won’t stop us from sharing some of the best travel disaster stories of all time. And we’ve got a super crazy episode for you!

We kick off with an update on the passengers of the Princess Cruise ship stranded off the coast of San Francisco. They’ve been allowed to get off the ship, but now they have a whole new set of troubles while quarantined on land!

Then Christine shows Jules a video of a group of monkeys in Lopburi, Thailand who are sorely missing their beloved tourists! Let’s just say that without the scraps normally thrown to them by travelers, they’re going a little bananas!

Finally, we only have time for one main story this episode because it is a doozy! Christine tells Jules the famous mystery of Dyatlov’s Pass, one Russia’s most famous unsolved mysteries. A group of hikers travel to Kholat Syakhl, or “Death Mountain,” only to be killed under extremely mysterious circumstances. We go through the prevailing theories and weigh in on it ourselves. Let us know which you believe!
