Camping the Back Roads! We dig up beauty!
Do you dream of the open roads, blue skies, and paths to places that are scenic? How about a canoe trip down a river or exploring a quaint town from border to border? If this is your dream in retirement, this is the episode for you! Pat and Jane Sallee of Guthrie, Oklahoma, do just that! Their son, Dustin, reached out to us after listening to one of our podcasts and encouraged us to contact his parents who have some amazing retirement camping adventures. So we did just that and now we are itching to follow their footsteps and camp across America and Canada! Thank you Pat and Jane!
