Episode 110: Slow Down, You’re Moving Too Fast! The biggest mistake many RVers make is they stay in Walmart parking lots, cover too much ground, too fast, and overplan! To maximize the RV experience we all need to slow down and enjoy the journey. In this week’s episode, we interview a couple who have been doing just that for 19 years and they offer some of the most helpful, practical and pointed advice we’ve ever shared in the podcast. Bill and Peggy Bechtel also tell us how they were able to retire at the age of 55 and fully embrace the RV lifestyle, unworried about running out of money. This week’s episode is a must listen! Plus we have RV news, tips, questions and an off the beaten path report about a place called the Dead Horse Park that – despite its off-putting name – belongs on your bucket list.

The friendships that RVing brings Cold weather is coming, and the first wave of the Great Snowbird Migration is underway Our travel plans for Mackinac Island this week, Souderton PA next week JENNIFER'S TIP OF THE WEEK This week’s tip is for all of you who have diesel RVs. And it’s a warning about what could happen if you are not careful at the pumps… Jeff and Mary Jane Curry explain on the podcast in an interview with Jennifer just what happened when they mistakenly filled their diesel tank with gasoline. Here’s a link to additional details in a story they wrote on the blog about it - http://roadtreking.com/word-caution-regarding-deisel-pumps/ The reverse could be true, for those of you with gasoline engines. Diesel in a gas engine can also be very damaging. So pay attention out there! And be sure to send me your tips and suggestions for the RV lifestyle.

Great show, especially if considering buying RV!
We've recently discovered this podcast and have learned so much from the show. Hosts seem gracious and maybe even people I would be friends with if they were my neighbors. I love the RV maintenance tips and info on wifi options on the road, solar tech, and other interesting bits. My husband and I are in learning phase and getting ready to purchase a Class B. We are 28 & 35 yro, maybe early on RVing lifestyle, but love the idea of roaming free and seeing the country. We look forward to being on the road soon and really appreciate your show Mike & Jennifer.

I've listened to parts of some of the episodes. Its a new way to learn about RVing. Its an interesting concept. Runs like a radio show about RVing. Can be a little long and wordy but there's some good stuff here
