Episode 147 | 13 Years on the Road and Being More Dog with Jim Nelson & Rene Agredano

This week, our full-time series returns, as we talk with Jim Nelson and Rene Agredano about their decade-plus on the road. They share their story to full-time RV freedom and tons of tips about traveling with pets. Plus, we’ve recently visited Mesa Verde and we talk about what it was like to visit a National Park in the time of COVID-19. And finally, we bypass fresh tank and black tank this week and instead share our thoughts on recent events and we hope you’ll join us in listening and then taking action.

This week we welcome Jim Nelson and Rene Agredano to the show, whose recent book “Be More Dog: Learning to Live in the Now” was a #1 New Release in Travel with Pets on Amazon.

After their dog Jerry lost a leg to cancer, Jim and Rene bought an RV and traveled the country together as a pack for two years. That bittersweet journey led them to create Tripawds, which has become the largest online support community for amputee pets and their people. Jim and Rene are full-time RV travelers, managing a growing community and 501c3 foundation from their mobile headquarters.

The story of their life on the road with Jerry was featured in Nature: Why We Love Cats and Dogs, which first aired on PBS in 2009.
