On this RV Miles, we journey to the surprisingly adventurous town of Omaha, Nebraska, and visit what is possibly the greatest zoo in the country — along with some other great attractions. But first, it’s fall! Time for Chili! We talk about making chili in the RV or over the campfire. All that, plus news, a new brain teaser, and more! Listen below, or on any podcast app, such as Apple Podcasts.
