 009 Roadtreking RV Podcast: Top Questions From RVers

RVers sure have a lot of questions. We answer a bunch of them in this edition of the podcast.

When it comes to technology questions, nobody answers them better than Jim and Chris Guld, the Geeks on Tour, a husband-wife team who travel full-time across North America giving technology seminars to RVers and rallies and campground gatherings all year long.

You’ll hear them in our featured interview this week.

Plus we have a great tech gadget to recommend, an especially beautiful bucket list destination of the week, and news and reader feedback



Here are the shownotes from Episode 9 of Roadtreking: The RV Podcast

This episode released on Thanksgiving week 2014 and we have Thanksgiving greetings from our team of Roadtreking Reporters, the great group of talented RVers who join me in blogging on the Roadtreking.com website.


The Mophie

The Mophie Powerstation Duo External 12000 mAh Battery

With more and more USB devices becoming “necessities” for daily life, the powerstation duo was developed to ensure you have enough power to keep them fully charged when you need it most. Charge your phone and tablet together or share a port with a friend in need when outlets aren't an option. You can get eight phone chargings from a single charge to the Mophie.


Florida’s Emerald Coast – Our destination of the week is the Florida Panhandle, and specifically the Emerald Coast, which has perhaps the finest beaches we have found anywhere in America. Here’s a link to Emerald Cost photos and video and a look at a cool wait =to catch bait for fishermen.
