On today’s jam-packed RV Miles Podcast episode, we cover the surprisingly beautiful Roswell, New Mexico, area. Aliens abound – the truth is out there! But really, Roswell is full of off-the-beaten-path natural beauty, and we’ll tell you where to find it. We also talk with Chef Hardcore, who writes our RV Epicure column, about cooking in an RV.

In the news, a cool new Vegas experience, buying national park entry in advance online, and a sad incident at Arches National Park.
