Escapade 2016 Interviews
This is our second show with Escapade 2016 Interviews. We were able to do 5 interviews before we ran out of time. Perhaps we can get even more next year at the 2017 Escapade in Tucson, AZ in March. Get much more information at http://www.escapees.com .
This week we interview Marianne Edwards and her daughter Anna Maste who are the principals at Boondockers Welcome. This is a website somewhat similar to Harvest Hosts, but it matches up boondockers needing a place to stay with folks who have an RV pad, or even limited hookups. The interactive map allows you to see the approximate area where the host site is located, and after you make a connection, you will be given explicit directions to the site. This is an excellent way to make good camping connections and at $24.95 a year, it’s a bargain as well. Check them out at http://www.boondockerswelcome.com . Marianne is also the author of the excellent Frugal Shunpiker’s Guides to RV Boondocking. Check out this series of boondocker books at http://www.frugal-rv-travel.com .
We had a great time at the Escapade but we ran into a snag on US4 in New York in Glen’s Falls on the way there. Apparently I missed a detour and ended up going up a road with a 12-degree grade that was one way…the other way. Of course I met someone going the other way. She had to back up and wasn’t too happy about it. It’s all part of the adventure.
Geeks on Tour
Our second of the Escapade 2016 Interviews was with our good friends Chris and Jim Guld aka the Geeks on Tour. We have known these folks for about 7 years and we meet from time to time in different parts of the country. These folks are very well known in the RV community for their seminars all about how to use our new technology. They’re even better than our 10-year-old grand children at helping us to come into the 21st century, sometimes kicking and screaming. We were fortunate to have had them at our Gathering rally last year and they will be back this year in October for the 2016 edition of the Living the RV Dream Gathering rally.
