ITF028: Flying vs. RV’ing

inthefieldpodcast-300x300This is In The Field Camping Episode 28.  In this episode, Chris talked about moving, work, crowded campgrounds – in other words things keeping us from camping and recording.  Then it was on to comparing flying verses camping, or RV’ing.  Not commercial flying, but personal/private pilot type of flying as opposed to road trips.  This episode was recorded from Jacks Gulch in northeast Colorado.
