Every RVer needs to experience Alaska at least once and in this episode of the Roadtreking RV Lifestyle Podcast, we learn from perhaps the top expert when it comes to RVing in Alaska – author and fulltime RVer Ron Jones. Ron tells us that if you are planning to visit Alaska this year – right now is when you should start planning and he dispels some myths and false notions, replacing it with solid, practical and expert advice on making this long journey. You will not want to miss my interview with Ron, coming up soon. Also in this episode, RV travel, tech and pet tips, news, your questions and comments and much more. Show Notes for Episode #123 Jan. 18 2017 of Roadtreking - The RV Lifestyle Podcast: JENNIFER'S TIP OF THE WEEK This tip comes by email from one of our listeners named Wendy… who came across an inexpensive little gadget that can help with staying clean and showering on camping trips and hikes. It’s called the Simple Shower and it is a specially designed portable shower that attaches to just about any one or two liter bottle to convert them into a shower. That’s right: It turns an empty water or soft drink bottle into a makeshift shower. Here’s how it works: Simply fill a plastic 1 or 2 liter bottle with warm water, or leave the bottle in the sun to heat up, and attach the Simple Shower device in the open neck of the bottle for a quick and easy shower. It's ideal for backpacking, canoeing, kayaking, hunting, camping, emergencies, cleaning pets, washing utensils, at the beach, and anywhere else a steady stream flow shower can be used. A two liter bottle can hold pretty close to a half gallon of water and the Simple Shower attachment pours it out in a nice stream, not all at once And if you have a couple of them, you could even wash your hair. It costs just $12.99 on Amazon. Thanks, Wendy, for sending me that tip. And I invite all our listeners to send me your tips and

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.
