In this episode, we give you our move day and road trip tips on keeping your kiddos (and yourself) happy. Our road trips in the Jeep can be a couple of hours to all day in the car. Many of our road trips are going to a Jeep trail, so that's even longer in the Jeep. Our move days can range from an hour to five hours. We have even had a couple of nine-hour days, and that's a long time driving in an RV.

Hey adventurers! 🚐
Did this episode spark some wanderlust, or did it remind you of one of your own off-the-beaten-path stories? If you felt that campfire friendship while listening, we would be super grateful if you’d take a moment to pop over to Apple Podcasts. Please leave us a rating, maybe say hi in the review section, and don’t forget to subscribe. It’s like giving a friendly nod to a fellow RVer on the open road.
Do you have a hidden gem of a location you think we should explore next? Or maybe a practical tip for full-time RV living? Leave us a message—this journey is all the richer when shared with the community.
🏞️ Safe travels, and see you down the road!

First, I would like to point out that we try to stay at spots anywhere in one location from a week to a month. We are not moving the RV every day. To be honest, we don't have a lot of one-week stays.
Our goal for move days is to keep the move less than 4 hours daily. We use RV Trip Wizard, and they have a great tool that allows you to determine how far you would like to go and see a radius on the map. Our settings allow us to choose between 100, 15, and 200 miles.
Tony and I love to listen to books as we drive. Here are a few of our favorites.
- Terminal List Book Series by Jack Carr
- Tier One Series by Brian Andrews and Jeffrey Wilson
- The Mitch Rapp Saga by Vince Flynn
- The Survivalist by Arthur T. Bradley
- The Survivalist Series by A. AMERICAN
We bought the DVD players on Amazon. I'm linking to them even though it says “Currently Unavailable” because I'm sure it will be back. I would recommend finding one where you can watch different movies or the same movie at the same time—the girls use both options equally.

Camco 41541 Portable Travel Toilet – 5.3 Gallon, White – We love this toilet so much! Just use some of the RV septic cleaners you use as your main cleaner in this toilet to keep the smells down.
