RV Podcast #184: What’s Your RV Lifestyle?
3 days ago
There are a lot of RVs out there. And there are a lot of reasons people buy them. So the RV Lifestyle takes many different forms. In this episode, we will introduce you to a wonderful group of people we spent time with this past weekend at an informal meet-up in Waco Texas. I think you’ll find it very interesting how the RV lifestyle can fulfill so many dreams and be used in so many different ways. Plus, coming up, your RV questions, RV tips, traveling tech suggestions and a great off the beaten path report. Show Notes for Episode #184 March 21, 2018 of Roadtreking - The RV Podcast: WHAT MIKE AND JENNIFER ARE UP TO THIS WEEK We are doing this podcast from the beautiful Texas Hill Country, specifically at the Canyon of the Eagles Park on the shores of Lake Buchanan. It’s called the Canyon of the Eagles because lots of bald eagles winter here each year, fishing the warm waters of the lake. We are in a beautiful campground overlooking the lake. It’s just us and one other RV in the entire campground and but is so quiet and peaceful we keep extending our stay. What was to be a quick visit to the area is now on its fourth day! We posted lots of photos on the blog already and we’ll talk more about this place in an off the beaten path report a little later in the podcast. But we’ve had a great week of traveling and have so enjoyed Texas. We spent the past weekend in Waco, Texas, a place well known to fans of the HGTV television show Fixer Upper as the home of Chip and Joanna Gaines, the stars of the show. It is unbelievable how the popularity of the show and Chip and Joanna’s Magnolia branded businesses have transformed Waco. They have a bakery, they renovated two old grain Silos and turned it into a design boutique and they just opened a restaurant… that has a 2 ½ hour wait to get in. 20,000 tourists a week come to Waco… Waco is the 2nd most searched zip code on realtor.com… David Ridley, who owned ne of the homes Chip and Joanna fixed up, runs a tour bus company. This was a really, really busy weekend in Waco. Chip and Joann had their Spring celebration and they say as many as 150,000 people came from all over the country. Every hotel and RV park was supposedly booked up for 80 miles around. We also had our expert tour guide… and we want to give a big shout to David Hunt, one of our Roadtreking followers. David lives in Waco and generously gave

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.

Interesting Concept for RVing Info
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
