Have we got a treat for you this newsletter!
While some RVers are thinking about winterizing the RV, many are migrating to warmer climes like the Florida Keys or finding fabulous places to fish in the South. Our incredible CampingRoadTrip.com friend, Adam Nutting, is in full swing preparing everything from food through to budgets and paperwork before he heads off on his big adventure - hiking the Appalachian Trail!
Yes folks, you heard right... in March Adam will be setting off on his 2,184 mile walk in the woods... and we will be following him every step of the way. Right now he is getting his 'house in order' and doing his research. I'm sure you have questions galore for him which you can email here and Adam will answer them in his next article.
We are so excited and hope this inspires you to get out and take a hike.
