On this RV Miles, we journey to the Quad Cities, right off I-80 on the Illinois/Iowa border for fun, history, and pizza! Plus, we have a follow up on our hiking with kids episode, and a whole lot of news!
Visit L.L.Bean for great gear for exploring the outdoors, and use the hashtag #beanoutsider to show off your adventures on social media, because on the inside, we’re all outsiders
