Getting ready for 2019

 Getting ready for 2019

OK. Let's get this out of the way. Yes, I know I'm technically supposed to be off work, taking a year-end break from blogging, podcasting and video production. 


I need a favor to get us back to work on January 2 with the next episode of the RV Podcast: I need your input. The theme for the first podcast of the year and first our official back-to-work project for the year is a list of the top bucket list plans everyone has for 2019. We have been doing this every year now and readers tell us that it's one of their favorite stories, something they use to plan and refine their own travels for the new year ahead.

So here's how to do it: We now have a dedicated phone line for you to call in and leave your messages. Just call 1-586-372-6990 and tell us what RV trip you are most looking forward to in 2019.

When Jennifer and I record our next podcast, we'll include all the messages we get.

We return to work Wednesday Jan. 2 with the next episode of the podcast. And on Thursday, Jan. 3, I'll release my next video for the RV Lifestyle Channel on YouTube, showing the two two electronic gadgets I wont travel without. Here's a hunt: One of them is a cell phone booster. I'll reveal the system I chose, show you how and where I installed the antenna and how it performs.

OK. before Jennifer catches me sneaking in this post, I'm going back to the vacation.

Happy New Year, everyone!
