Tony and Peggy really bring RVing to everyone.

I find at least a nugget of information that I need to know on each podcast. Sometimes I find a whole gold mine, like I did with the episode where Nick Russell was the guest! I now have a bunch of books I need to read.
Your Thanksgiving episode made me hungry!

Just an every day camper, enjoying everything about this podcast

We have been camping forever it seems as a child as a teenager and now as adults. We went from tenet, Poppa, tow behind small trailer, now with fifth wheel with slide. Just camp locally but really enjoy this podcast for all the tips, gadget suggestions, and I especially enjoy hearing about the different areas they talk about in different parts of the country. Looking forward to retirement time so hopefully me and my husband will be able to check out some of these areas ourselves. Really enjoyed learning more about the Boondocking and how that all works. Thank you for all your hard work keep it up!
