In this episode, we talk about Walmart parking lots, one of the favorite overnight camping spots used by RVers when they need a quick place to spend the night. Over the past couple of years, Walmart parking lots have been linked to story after story about high crime rates. Many RVers, in fact, now stay away from them. Is the anxiety justified? We’ll answer a call from a worried listener and do our best to clarify the concerns and let you know our thoughts abut this. Plus more of your questions, a great off the beaten path report, tips on saving money this shopping season and an interview with Mary Jane Curry on the top gadgets uou need in your RV kitchen.

In fact, surveys show that one of the main reasons people buy an RV is so they can travel with their pets. At a recent RV show in Louisville, we ran into our friends Mark and Dawn Polk, of RV Education 101. They travel with not one, not two but three dogs. How do they do it? We whipped out the recorder and asked Dawn for some tips… Good advice from the Polks! And be sure to send me your tips and suggestions about any aspect of 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.
