After the mail, and before we discuss the RVer Health Insurance Enrollment, we talk about going back to the Tampa RV Supershow this coming January 15th and 16th, and greeting our listeners again on Friday and Saturday from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Come see us if you are in the Tampa, FL area.

I spent some quality time investigating a very thorough and well thought out app called The Ultimate Public Campground Project. This fits in very well with last week’s discussion about camping on public lands and where to go. There are almost 25,000 sites in the lower 28 states, 3,500 in Canada, and another 400 just listed in Alaska. This covers BLM, COE, USFS, TVA, National Parks, U.S. BOR, U.S. Forest Service, military, state, county, municipal, utility, Indian Reservations, non-profits, and other miscellaneous public camping spots. This is a really great App for $3.99 Check out the website at

We discuss the top 10 things you need to know when traveling in Canada. It is mostly common sense, but it puts a lot of good information together to help in trip planning.

The main feature is all about RVer Health Insurance Enrollment as it relates to current open enrollment for the Affordable Care Act (Obama Care). The folks at the RVer Insurance Exchange have produced a very extensive RVer Guide to ACA Open Enrollment. This is very key information to those of you under 62 years of age traveling around the country. Our feeling is that lack of adequate health insurance can be a game changer for the full-timing RVer. Here is a link to the guide.
