 Live from the 2015 Hershey RV Show (Part 1)

America's Largest RV Show in Hershey, PA draws tens of thousands of people who tour the equivaent of 33 football fields filled with new RVs.

We hung out at the Roadtrek Display Thursday, Sept.17, 2015 and did a 45 minute live report via a service called Blab. We taped the last few minutes.

Here's what it looked like.

There were 300 people watching this live. You can post questions and I can even add you to the video stream. It's a pretty cool service. The quality is pretty good, depending on your Internet connection. I was using my Verizon Jet Pack 4G LTE data card and my MacBook Pro laptop's camera and mic.

What I really lke about it is how people can post comments and questions live on the right side of the screen as we are broadcasting.

We'll do another live broadcast at 3PM Friday. To watch it live, go to

Or come back here to the blog on Saturday and we'll post the taped version of what we do Froday.

Jennifer and I had a great time meeting so many of you. The small motorhome lifestyle ties so many of us together. It really is one big family. It's great to hear everyone's story.
