Road Tripping in America is a podcast about life on the road, brought to you by two restless souls, Lisa and Paul. We’re exploring the US in a pickup truck with a camper – we named our setup The Bobs.

If you daydream about long-term travel or overlanding or #vanlife – or maybe you’re already on your own adventure – join us every two to three weeks for some entertainment from the road. We’re in search of off-the-beaten-path adventures and new experiences after a year and a half of standing still. Visit roadtrippinginamerica.com for more.
