Tim.

Listening to #9 as I write this. I'm living vicariously through Rich and his family.

I am a little behind. I have episodes 2-8 to listen to.

Thanks for all the hard work!

I loved it!

From the Troubs' music to the in depth interview about fulltiming and living on the road. I wish it hadn't ended! The time flew by. I will be looking, quite anxiously, for that Extra to hear Part Two. There was so much information about the logistics of traveling full time, great observations and practical tips to embracing the whole philosophy of seeing, living and doing more with your Airstream. It was like sitting together in the living room chatting with old friends about their adventures. I was mesmerized.

Keep up the great programming. You have something for everyone. Thanks.

Smile Great episode of the VAP!

I thoroughly enjoyed the VAP's latest episode. It was interesting to hear about the types of campgrounds that the Luhr family enjoys, and the importance of having an attitude or perspective that's flexible and adaptable for full-timing to work for you. I am also looking forward to the second half of the interview, subscribed through IPOD too.
