RT72 Conversations around a winter campfire

 RT72 Conversations around a winter campfire

I am amazed at how many RVers are content to put their RV in storage for the season and never think of using it for winter camping.

In this week's podcast, you meet a group of hearty winter campers who participated in our annual Winter Campout at Tahquamenon Falls in Michigan's snow-covered Upper Peninsula this past weekend. I think you'll find their perspective interesting as they share their thoughts around one of our nightly campfires.  [spp-timestamp time=”30:35″]
