Wander Bus has officially moved on to her new home, and Jason and Abby are just days away from picking their new RV up. With all that in mind, seems only right to take a look back on some of the highs and lows of converting, traveling and living in a school bus.
As FMCA prepares for its 100th International Convention in Minot, ND, Doug Ulenbrach joins us to talk about the history of the FMCA convention and why they continue to be one of the best ways to learn about the RV lifestyle and meet those who love it as much as you. Ready to join FMCA? Click the link below and save $10 instantly on an FMCA yearly membership. We’ll see you in Minot!
Plus we have the answer to last week’s brainteaser, a brand new one, and Jason and Abby’s fresh tank/black tank picks.
