They have owned Fifteen rv's in six years maybe to get something else and they sell up. And i think they now they still own three right. He said i didn't hear that part. And he said that. If you buy quality yes you can usually sell it for what you have invested in or more particularly now in this market and you take care of it take care of a wash it you take very good care of it. And he said he's shopped off until now it's at the seller's market but he would finally wanted what it was worth he would call every deal and say. This is what i'm prepared to pay. You saw to me and he would go and get it. Use it sometimes. Sometimes one trip. But it's kind of like flipping houses. He would just flip reason. They use them themselves but really interesting story. He just wouldn't go on camera camera most interesting story. I've ever heard young couple. Probably forty s down south someplace pro l. but we'll tell their story anyway which we just did something. We got. Jacob seismic last year on camping about five times so far this year last year.

"Eighteen. And william. Who's nine and yeah. We've been home schooling them on the road a long before kovic. Everyone thinks got into home school because the cova but we were cool before it was cool. Yeah we traveling around right now. We're in san diego and we love it. So were you in our v. tech before how did you get into that part of the business. Well i started off as a mechanic in the military I used to fix howitzers and some of their big artillery. And when i got out of the military we got into. Rv's for fun. So we had some for weekend trips. And i was just constantly working on it and learning about it and having to fix it and never had to have a professional come out i noticed it was weeks until they could show up and sometimes even when they did show up. They didn't know what they were doing. So i decided to start learning myself doing the work myself and then once i realize i was pretty good at it. I decided to get certified. And i went to a class in clearwater florida to be certified to work on our views. So what kind of a standards are those are certification. What should people look for when they hire mobile. Rv tech well. Of course you wanna look for somebody who's certified but the challenge with certification is what is a certification even me so you can get the certifying. Yeah exactly there's rbi a who is Industry standard for for most the rv's around the country and I went to a school called. Atc just a training center in clearwater florida where they use the same curriculum the curriculum as rv a but it is different accreditation I would say it's more important to make sure that your repair tech has better reviews. I'd make sure that they have insurance. And i think those two things will be more important than say a certification. Because i could say my mom certified me certified by you know tammy miranda nobody would know what that meant so now. You are traveling around the country and you work from the road. How do people find you out there. How do they know you there. That has actually been our biggest challenge and one way we do that. Is i have a big sprinter van with our letter right. Our business name or number on the side. And most i'd say probably seventy percent of our business comes from people seeing that van outside of an rv and a lot of people walk up. My my tech never showed up. You know i've been trying to get into camping. World for months of trying to get in the la- mesa for months. Can you please help me. And so i get a lot of people in line like that We also have y'all ads. Google ads that we can change no matter where we are in the world in the country so usually we'll switch over our yelp. Are google a few weeks before we get to a place so we have our calendar. Pretty much booked up when we show up now There is certainly as you as people tell you when they call you that. There is a challenge in getting into an rv dealership for a service center just as challenge in buying a new rv. I've always been recommending mobile. rv tax. But i'm wondering if lately because there's so much demand out there if there's a lot of shoddy work that's being done under the name of a mobile. Rv tech now. I know i'm kind of asking somebody who does that. But you've been pretty vocal and pointing out some of the horror stories that you've seen you could share some of those with our audience. Sure i'd say. I'd say maybe and these are just random numbers that i'm guessing based on my experience i'd say maybe thirty percent of the jobs that i do are to fix jobs from camping. World lamesa other mobile texts at where somebody will show up saying that they're certified they know what they're doing up. But i can't fix your problem because at some crazy industry problem that you as a customer candor stan so why don't you pay me my service fee and i'm gonna be on my way now than i have to show up. Charge the customer again and actually fix the problem and that happens all the time. I had a customer in maryland. Actually a few weeks ago. So water heater wasn't working. He had a mobile tech. Come out he's three or four times. Finally replaced water heater completely. I show up and it was a ten year old. This mold will put in this man's rv and he wired it incorrectly so that was an electrical fire inside the box behind the water heater so i had to get in there and get all wired up and fixed up properly and the guys just like you know. I thought this was impossible. Because i had to separate texts. Come and tell me that. I'm just not going to have hot water. And so it's exactly like you said there are plenty of people who are just taking advantage of people collecting that service. Be moving on how to the average person as an our veer. How did they know when they're dealing with somebody who really doesn't have any skills or competency sure One of the big things that i do when i talked to customers is i tell them if i can't fix it or dose it i will not charge them and that is something that i would ask if i'm calling a mobile check. Yeah because for me. My my time has value. If i can bring that value to the customer if i show up oh i don't know what the heck's going on that'll be two hundred dollars. I didn't do anything for you. I took a shot at the basket. I completely missed. And then for some reason i expect you pay me for not doing anything or making your life any better so i know there's been a lot of amazing mobile tax that i've worked with.

Is It Possible to Make a Profit With Campground Investing

"Had their welcome to the show. Thank you so much for joining us today. Thank you. I appreciate you. Having me to get started. Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got started in real estate investing absolutely so ten years ago i was driving across the country in a camper from florida. California saying in all these different campgrounds house like hey it's just renting parking spots. It's not just writing parking spots. However i started google searching campgrounds for sale campgrounds in my area trying to figure out. Hey is this something i could do. And i found one that was in bankruptcy. I called the bank long story short and bought a campground before. I got california so by the time i was leaving. California to head back to tennessee. I'd bought property. I'd never seen in. I knew nothing about real estate or investing at all ten years later owned about three hundred units and have rv parks mobile home parks and section. Eight multifamily okay. That is insane so you didn't have any real estate background at all and you just jump for it and buyer campground. Yes they might be mildly. Impulsive okay. i want to start with that. So how did you even analyze the deal. How did you find it. What did that look like before we answer that question. I guess had you had any real estate investing experience before that i was at the very first for rain real estate. Investing you'd ever done literally there. I didn't even know an rv. Park was real estate or didn't know what the word analyzed meant. It just seemed like a good idea. Okay so yeah. It's tell us from the beginning. So you decide you want to do this. How did you find the power. Cobb did you finance it. What did that. I deal look like yet so i started google searching. Rv parks for sale campgrounds for sale in my area and i found this property that was next to dollywood which is our version at disneyworld. Only we have dolly parton instead of mickey mouse in tennessee which was an hour from where i lived in our tourist towns. I thought how could it go wrong. I mean how could something next to the number one attraction in the area not dwell call the bank and they want three point two million dollars in they. They're like how much money do you have. A twenty six years old Have any money. This was a different time in the market it was after the market had collapsed so it was two thousand eleven so they still had banks that still had properties on their books. Were willing to get rid of them. In a different way than you can buy properties now. So they gave me a non recourse loan in for anybody. That doesn't know what that means would be similar if you bought a house and you didn't pay your mortgage in the bank was going to take that back you file bankruptcy or whatever the repercussions were non-recourse. Means you're going to have any of those repercussions and no money down which you don't hear of now. It was nothing but a huge blessing. And in sam's els book who's one of the largest owners of in the mobile home park in rb park space. He talks about his first deal and he says i was successful. Because i didn't know i shouldn't have

Hey jennifer and mike. I'm off on thursdays and weekends. Wendy you wanna come theresa. Rainer was matter of fact when we call it with a request. She'd likely heard a thousand times before we arrived at raynor's garage driving down rainer road in the town of either the five or so square blocks of the town tumbled down a hillside toward the west fork of duck creek coal mining country. Brian rayner who passed away in two thousand thirteen was the town mechanic. As was his father and while locals might know the two men for their skills with a wrench and a tire iron thousands more know them as the curator of the museum. We come to see a museum in a thirty foot travel trailer. The shenandoah was a novel and extraordinary craft. A rigid airship built at the naval air station. Lakehurst new jersey. It was the first such craft to be filled with helium rather than the much more dangerous. Hydrogen and it skin was coated with cattle intestines in the form of gold. Beaters cloth the most gas impervious fabric known at the time filling. It took almost all the world's reserves of helium and it was years before a second ship could be filled. It first flew in nineteen twenty three and was christened with a native american name believed to mean daughter of stars in one thousand nine hundred thousand five. This marvel of technology designed to scout for enemy ships and feared u-boat's of world war. One set off on a forty city tour of the heartland stopping at fairs and expositions caught in a violent updraft. On the first day of its celebratory flight it was carried. Farther aloft in its gas bags could accommodate and broke apart in the skies over southeastern ohio. It crashed into three sections. On three local farms. Fourteen members of the crew were killed but miraculously one survived within days. The crash sites were sworn by curious locals and visiting adventure seekers who carried off much of the wreckage as a boy. Brian rayner began collecting anything. He could find related to the shenandoah after all his family had sold soda pop and ice water to the gawkers who came to look and collect souvenirs over his lifetime. He amassed an impressive collection of artifacts. Many of which were sent to him by family members of those who'd carried them off in the first place. Some two came from relatives of the crash survivors. Who appreciated his efforts to commemorate the event. When theresa mary brian collection was strewed around the garage arranged in bits here and there where there was room after a request set up history display in a local store window. The rangers traded for a used travel trailer and remade. The inside with the help of neighbors and friends theresa continues. The family advocation still collecting an opening the museum for those who inquire about it. Sometimes it.

"What's your assessment of where we are in terms of this crazy boom that we're in and and any advice to folks maybe from your rv hacks in your book about what they need to do to help find those campsites that we've definitely seen that the big surge in the interest in it's exciting to see all these new new folks discovering the rv lifestyle. But we don't julian. I have been able to find spots. It's been definitely more challenging. We actually took a forty five foot motor home down in february and march and april in florida which peak season. nbc's We were still able to find spots for but we did have to put worth. It is definitely be patient. And just have lots of backups. I think a lot of people get very set on to go to these campground at this time these dates and sometimes even site. But you just have to be flexible. Really that's just need coaling around be flexible and cancellations happened along. A lot of people are holding campsites. Mike you might have seen that to where booking multiple sites or even if i don't know if they'll need just because they don't wanna miss out and then as the time gets closer they realized well. Actually i count mike that camping trip and cancel it a few days before and then spaces will open up. Might be a little bit more stressful for those that are real planners and i you and jen wing it more when you're traveling and we do more now that we have a small little seventeen foot camper now but definitely with the bigger we liked planning more but campsites around they go further out than you normally would be looking at.

Allow you give us the thumbnail description julie star with that tell us hung doing it and mark a little bit more about. Rv love we. We hit the road is full of is back in two thousand fourteen sold at home in colorado border heim and explored all fifty states while traveling while living wyking traveling from the road which was amazing saves country and we've been sharing his ave love that blog youtube social media in a couple of books now and it's been a wild ride that right now joey i know people who may not be really say one is that accent. That's not a southern accent. That's not a british exit and you your from australia. But you have an announcement to make about that too. Just recently became susan. I did yes actually. In february on the eleventh and bane he living he since the end of two thousand eight. And yeah finally got my. us citizenship. In my little you know as flag was very exciting. Fourth of july felt really different. Actually they see being account explain it but it did filter and markelle tell everybody about your various platforms that you have in how you guys are celebrating and in Enjoying the rv love lifestyle started off with just a blogging youtube for fun. And now it's grown. We also have an online school for success. School enemy also have the two books. Of course. We're all over social media with instagram facebook and all that the liberal market just sharon for fun and then it became popular and everyone started getting into obeying we love creating educational avi contains. Let's talk about your book. Rv hacks it's actually the second book your first book that you guys had is. It was a bestseller and it was called living the rv life. That's still available. Still a great read but this one is a is a little different. Why don't you talk a little bit about what are hacks is all about sharing. Rv hacks are first book. Though you said it was a really big hit it was living. Everyone's talking about alva roll lifestyle in this book. We just thought there's so many little things over the years that we've learned that make this lifestyle more easy more fun and why not just trying to gather all those together in cinema out on a book so that can appeal to everybody and we really like it. It's a lot of fun to read in. It's cool for the audience because they can just pick it up and read it anywhere. They don't have to read it from tobacco they just pick it up and six different categories driving. Rv repairs and maintenance rv lifestyle which is like cooking and living and decorating. And then there's also kids in pats and also working from the big one avi camping campgrounds and talking as four hundred of them in there. And i figure oh i know all these tax and i have had a ball this region. And you've done a great job. You've gotten some of your friends who are out there doing kind of the same thing as we all do. And and they've offered there's but let's start off mike. What is your favorite hack of all. Four hundred of those won't one of them that comes to mind. That was really saved me. A lot over the years was to do some body measurements with your slide out. Assuming you have an rv has slide out is win. It's out. go outside in. Put your body next to the v. And put your arm out and see where that slide out ends on your arm so that you have a really accurate measurement to build a guide. How much space you're slides gonna need when you pull it. Put it out because a lot of campsites are smaller or there might be an obstacle or you might have pulled in a little bit too far to the left or whatever and if you walk out of your and you can just before you get all set up you can just stand next to the rv. Pull out no okay. My slides gonna stop right there and knockin hit any obstacles that we can finish setting up with confidence knowing you'll be able to put all your slides out because too many times those spaces get a little tight that wakes up ice doors to because of these big maasai motorhomes that we've had a couple of these swing way out and we have had the situation mike where we've been all set up a campsite which we did at night i recommend but we did this and we got set up and it was. I think he's a second last thought in the camp ground and they realized we couldn't get the we couldn't get the door open so we had to pack and take a big garage door on rv. And i had a couple of bikes in there. And i got up the next morning. Let's go. i'm going to get the bikes out. I hit a tree with the thing. I could not open the rest of it. I had actually take all the levellers off. Jive forward up. So that's a great tip measure just with your arm and then you kind of know judy. What's your favorite of all your four hundred hacks in your in your brand new. Like many renounces ways the best place. You've been so hard to pick one. But i thinking about something. That is a bit unusual at maybe. Some haven't head of these one is around food safety so you know we keep ravi. Sometimes in storage plugged in going out for the day and sometimes as the 'electricity can go at it a campground and so what we recommend is take a container of water with the lead villain about halfway with water and freeze it and they win. It's far as a a coin on top of the ice. Didn't really have to put billy back home but we do. Put it back in the freezer. So if the power goes out at all or if your fridge taking because let's say the power goes out and they run your battery down and especially if you're gone for an extended period of time then you will know whether or not the ice has melted and that coin his job down and then if the power comes back on rephrase you'll see that coins below the water surface so you'll be able to say whether or not that was impacted and so that affects your food safety so if you're coin is not sitting on top of ice you'll know that it was compromised depending on how thick the ice is where that pennies will give you a rough idea of how long your refrigerator hadn't been working if it's only a little bit. Oh that's not bad. Here's my business because it's so much better. It's actually on page one hundred thirteen and it's about preventing mold and mildew when and humid places this has been a a year unlike any other in the mid rest and in the east. It has been incredibly humid out. There and the humidity is not something that a lot of our viewers who camp in that region are used to encountering and so the you're hundred eighty fifth. Tips says when traveling or starting your rv and humid climates to prevent mold and mildew wipe out an empty fridge and leave the door ajar and keep the cabinet doors open for more air circulation water and moulder to the most common causes of rv damaged in that idea of keeping the refrigerator. Door open particularly when you come back home you park and a turn off the fridge at orders will come. they'll do can develop in. It can be a mess. That was my favorite tech. It was very difficult. Today's weather now..

I'm not a big fan of the wind guard. Connect to system. I think it's pretty expensive First of all secondly While it does a good job as a tv antenna and it is a good job of bringing in wi fi signals as kind of an extended for wi fi does a terrible job with four g. Lt cellular data on our previous unit. I had trouble galore. And i had the. At and t. system. The sim card and it would connect worked for a while. then drop. I go to another location. It would connect then. It would say that. I needed a software. Upgrade go and upgrade wind guard software software and they would connect and then it would drop an even on the new unit. I have found it very balki and for that reason. I can't recommend that. And i'm not alone. I've read a number of different forums. Are years complaining similarly about the wind guard. Connect to system. Now that said there price even if it did all work. I can't go with the price. They're only selling ten gigabytes for fifty nine dollars a month. I think you can get a my card.

But however you're listening. We got a lot to talk about today. And we wanna thank you for latinos listening to us supporting this. Thank you subscribe either podcasts. Or to the lifestyle youtube channel or both that would even be better well most of our time since we last joined. You're here in. The podcast was taken up with the launch of our latest book. It is the tenth of our. Rv lifestyle travel guides. And it's a great topic are five lakes five great lakes and it's something i think people just kind of forget about all the shoreline that's available for them to explore the us shoreline of all five great lakes now the year. We did it. It took us pretty much the whole summer but it doesn't have to take the whole summer. You can do just a weekend a week as much time as you want to do. It's a lot of fun and there so much to see. Everybody always wants to go to to the pacific coast or the atlantic coast or the gulf of mexico and those are all great spots. We'd love going there too. But i don't think most people realize how much shoreline we have around our great lakes though. There is a lot explore a lot of off the beaten path places. You can do our tour however you want. You know we've been talking about the book was coming. We've been talking about it for weeks and weeks and weeks and it's finally out and you'll see in the description below or unscreened in the show notes. We'll put a link to it but We're glad it's out number ten now. The question is what we do next. We'll figure it out. Well we got a bunch of ideas. One of them is the bourbon trail. We think that that has a pretty fun trip in kentucky and then we just did a video series on the naturist trace parkway and that would make a perfect book because there's so much to see their and and then one of our subscribers and viewers they stayed in on this Several months ago sent us a coffee table book called road trip with a raindrop and a first one is that and i started reading it and it is. It is absolutely captivated me a trip on the great river road. This star said many minnesota and makes its way all the way down the mississippi river to were at empties into the gulf of mexico in new orleans. And that would. That's right up our alley. So we're thinking of that as well. If you have any ideas would love to hear about these certainly would send us whatever you think. Our address is And you can reach us at this address for Mike and jen at rv. Lifestyle dot com. Mike and jen at rv lifestyle dot com. Not what you think that that would be good and we'll take it into consideration but more books gun ten of them out there now as our travel guys and we have a couple of others and we We enjoy putting out those books. That's half the fun of of taken our trips because we this will be great for the book getting lots of pictures. Lots of stories much as we can all right. So those are where we've been doing and what we're now thinking about doing so we can plan out another trip but we've got some feedback from our listeners that we want to share with you. We love it to you. Send us photos and links to things that you find that interesting it. It's kind of like we have this great quarters out there and we've got Several that we want to talk about in the podcast. Gambro jackson postseason. Rv facebook group of picture of truly crowded campground. We all talk about how crowded it can be. But i think this wins the prize and this was it showed an rv with a small little slide on it. And i mean a foot away. The people in the lot next door had pitched attempt a tent and at first we saw the photo. And what did you think. I thought it was. Part of. the family was a big group. Kids he said no they were their next door neighbors and they described him as being she described as being very friendly neighbors and said maybe they'll be willing to move the tents so she can brush off her slide. It's time to close up. A good thing is like didn't extend any further than it did. So that was posted on our rv lifestyle group on facebook. Another member of our v. lifestyle. Group john center. Send us a picture that something that we all worry about if we have a slide. I'll say this picture was of of an rv. Going down the interstate. I believe and this slide. The rear slide was fully extended. I don't know whether it occurred then broke. It could have been broke and they have to take it into get repaired. And they're driving down the road. Was it open like that at least in the right hand lane or it could have just opened on route as they were driving. John sent the picture saying they can't possibly not know right. I think they must be taking it someplace to get it fixed because their way to the right almost driving on that white line on the far right. There's no way that you don't know that you've got that situation anyway. I'm sorry at apple. To that group anybody the slide. That's that's the next thing we want to share was said by another one of our facebook members and it was actually of an rv. demolition derby.

I just can't believe the people that netherlands effect crazy i. I can't imagine anybody wanting to watch something like this. I mean it's for those of you who are listening to the podcast. It would be worth it for.

Factoring Health Care Costs Into Your Retirement Fund

"Are the most important steps in retirement planning is basically determining how much it'll cost however this could be a challenge when the price tag of one of the biggest items in your budget could be anywhere between a hundred and fifty thousand dollars and more than a million dollars lace. That is how much a sixty five year old couple couple retiring in twenty twenty one could spend on their lifetime. Retirement health care expenses according to health few services. The range is so wide because the cost will depend on all kinds of factors such as where you live even your incomes. It's medicare premiums are based on your tax return. You know your current health health status and of course any future ailments that may happen to you and to add. Insult to the cost of injury. That estimate doesn't even include the possible price tag. A term care. Actually it turns out that healthcare is unique among the retirement expenses for three reasons. I it's likely to the expense that will go up the most when you retire unless of course you go out and buy rv or something like that. Bank estimates that on average the cost of medicare premiums are almost triple the amount that employees paid for health insurance coverage when they're working people who retire before medicare eligibility at age sixty five can expect to pay more than six times what they're paying for employer provided coverage secondly most expenses actually stay flat or even declined over the course of retirement. The one big exception is healthcare healthy services estimates. That kurt retiree should expect their costs. Will rise five point nine percent a year every year for the rest of their lives and then third healthcare likely be the most unpredictable expense. You'll have in retirement. The amount you spend on things like you know housing food transportation entertainment. They'll be within somewhat narrow ranges that are at least somewhat within your control out but healthcare costs. They're gonna vary up on all kinds of things like government decisions.

Q&A: How to Fund Rehabs and Renovations

"Today's question comes from shanty long and shanties question is we're about to close in a duplex in. It's going to need anywhere between six thousand to ten thousand dollars in repairs. What are some options for funding this rehab so ash. I'll let you go first narconon chime in with my thoughts afterwards. Okay the first thing. I thought of when i was reviewing this question was credit cards. So what did you say. It was six to ten thousand. They're looking to spend with that amount. You could easily get a credit card. Usually for that amount of money and there are so many credit cards out there that will do zero percent interest. So what this means. Is you start buying materials supplies with the credit card at lowe's home depot wherever your hardware store is to get your materials or even online new use credit card to pay and the credit card will usually give you zero percent interest so all you have to do is make a minimum payment every month which can be if you have ten thousand dollars on their. Depending on the interest rate you could probably be paying ninety dollars a month is the minimum payment towards the card. So what your strategy here is to get a card that has that zero percent interest for as long as you're going to be doing the rehab and until you can refinance so for example. Some of the cards will do it for eighteen months. And hopefully your rehab and your refinances completed by then so that you can pay off the credit card before you're actually charged interest on those payments and you're just making that minimum payment which is actually going towards your balance and not towards interest. So i think that is one of the greatest tools that you can actually use and you can find the zero percent interest credit cards on the business side or in your personal name to. Yeah no. that's great advice actually and especially at that dollar amount right sixty thousand you said. It should be not too big of an obstacle for most people to get approved for for something around that loan limit. I think something else to consider and shaun tait didn't really share. What the potential rv or the purchase price of this property is but i mean at six thousand dollars you could also try and borrow money from a family member from a friend and say hey. Loan me ten thousand dollars. I'm gonna fix up. This property wants it's done. I'm going to be able to pull out forty thousand dollars. Whatever the number is. And then. I'll be able to give you a return on your money

Reinventing The Wheel by Fritz Gilbert of The Retirement Manifesto

"I thought of ways. I've reinvented things through the first three years of my retirement. Fortunately i've documented every week in the post on the site going through those archives. I found the following examples of how this mindset can be applied in retirement number one moving from good to great when we realized we do better with our retirement homestead. We sold our original good retirement cabin and moved into a great one number two changing from a saver to a spender making a mental shift to spend to the level. We knew we could afford and no longer worrying about the need to save number. Three changing our approach to travel from cross country train trip to it extended rv v trip to the pacific northwest to a shorter rv trip to michigan's upper peninsula. We've intentionally reinvented our approach to travel. Every year of retirement number four realizing time mattered more than money. After years of focusing on building our investments we made the mental shift to realize that time freedom was what really mattered number. Five building a dream. The story of our new purposeful workshop and focusing our retirement on things that matter to us number six buying a second home in retirement when our daughter moved closer. We've reinvented our retirement to spend more time with our two year. Old granddaughter conclusion retirement is a perfect time to reinvent your wheel. Don't settle for things as they are but rather seek to continually improve your life experience. Have you don't like something modify it. It doesn't matter if it's large or small continually tweaking. Your approach brings tremendous value especially in retirement

Will Eating More Often Help You Burn More Calories?

Will Eating More Often Help You Burn More Calories?

"This week we're talking about whether eating more often can help you burn more calories despite the recent popularity of intermittent fasting. There's still a widespread belief that eating every two or three hours. We'll help you lose weight by keeping your metabolism stoked up or conversely that going too long between meals will cause your metabolism to slow down. I think one of the reasons that these nations have gotten so much traction. Is that people hall out some really scientific sounding explanations. That seem well. Very deep scientific and therefore believable. There are two basic arguments that you'll hear to support this claim and we'll tackle them one at a time. The first goes like this your body when deprived of food for a period of time. We'll go into quote unquote star vacation mode. This is when the body burns fewer calories in order to conserve energy. Just in case the food shortage continues now during a famine. You'd need to live on your stored fat and down regulating. Your metabolism is way to make those fat stores go a bit further. It's sort of similar to the way. Your laptop adjusts its energy usage. It's running on batteries by making your screen a little bit dimmer for example when food is plentiful again. Your metabolism goes back to normal just the way your screen gets brighter. When you plug your laptop back in if there were actually a famine. You'd be so glad that your body is designed this way but if you're trying to lose weight the last thing you want is increased fuel efficiency. You want to be burning through stored fat like an rv burns through a tank of gas so the trick is to reassure your body that there is no shortage of food by eating every few hours and then your body will oblige you by continuing to burn calories with reckless metabolic abandoned or so the story goes. It makes sense doesn't it and it's sort of true. Your body does respond to a prolonged fast by slowing your metabolism to conserve energy. Here's the thing though. Your body doesn't go into starvation mode if you go four hours without food in fact it takes about three days of fasting or serious caloric restriction for your body to respond with any sort of adjustment.

"Summer RV, trip faces unprecedented challenges this summer. And I know tell you something you didn't know right. I mean we're still in the middle of coronavirus. Pandemic camping and non essential travel is restricted in many places. Dangerous riots have erected across North American every major city in many smaller ones. The Canadian borders closed. There are safety concerns financial concerns seemingly a new crisis every day. So this week in the retie gas, we're GONNA talk about those summer RV trip challenges, and how you can make your rv travel is safe and is satisfying as possible given the very unusual circumstances under which we now find ourselves in the summer of twenty twenty. Hello, everybody and welcome to episode two ninety-seven, seven of the RV podcast and we do have a lot to talk about this week. We have RV news. We've got your questions. We've got an interview about how you can get around those summer RV trip challenges and still get your RV to Alaska by ship. We'll talk about that and our interview the week plus we've got tips and suggestions and a lot more but I my lifelong traveling companion McBride Jennifer. Hello, my dear Hello Michael. What a time we live in What time it is yeah. You know the one thing about coming to you from where we are now on Okaloosa island near Destin Florida for Walton Beach Florida that area is. The just to show you. How different is down here? You. Know what the lead story in the paper was today. The lead story was red snapper opening day, the opening day of red snapper season was yesterday, and the local paper was filled with photos from Destin, which is known as America's luckiest fishing village of The Red snapper catch this year and Got Me Hungry I think we should go out for fish tonight. At sounds really good and something else. That was normal was that when we were at the dog park? Today we saw a whole bunch of little kids in yellow t-shirts, getting off a school bus and they were having a picnic at the park and playing on the toys and doing what kids do. This is how life is supposed to be and You know what tumultuous times we live in I mean last week last week as we were do podcast. PODCAST, we were just starting to move out of the national lockdowns from the Krona virus pandemic, and we were saying last week, who could have seen such a terrible thing? And then this week we look at the wave of terrible riots and violence, sweeping the country in the wake of the protests over police brutality in the murder of George, Floyd, and Minneapolis, and we say who could have seen such destruction and pain or this podcast as you all know is about the RV lifestyle, but we certainly have to acknowledge the. Terrible time, we're living to right now Jennifer and I are optimistic by nature where people of faith in we know, many of you are as well and so we ask those of you who? Are the same to to join us in prayer for our nation I. Mean it certainly needs it now? none of us know what is next. That's I guess the lesson that we have certainly all learned this year together, but at the same time we believe that we can move forward when it comes to summer RV trip plants, but we have to do so recognizing the changes we face, and this will be a summer like no other. We've ever experienced, and that's all GonNa. Talk about a lot in this podcast. Said! We're still in Florida on Okaloosa. Island and we are planning a getaway camping trip next weekend, and then the week after barring the unexpected, which is certainly happening a lot. This year we plan to leave Florida, and after almost six months being down here and then head to our home in Michigan, which needs some attentions lawn, work and stuff like that and then hopefully. Resume some travelling. We have lots of plans for June and July and August travel and beyond that but. As we stay up with learned anything this time of the year. It's that those plans have to be flexible. Mike Scott. US inside information and trends that shape the lifestyle years. The RV newsworthy we, as we talk here on the RV podcast about summer RV trip challenges, let's start in Maine where a federal judge as upheld the governor or Maine's requirements that all out of state visitors be quarantined for fourteen days when entering the state to campgrounds were among several small businesses that filed a federal. Federal lawsuit saying the quarantine is unconstitutional for discriminating against out of towners. The governor permits main residents to go camping, but out of towners must be quarantined fourteen days before they can travel about the small businesses heavily dependent upon tourism, said this order was hurting them financially, and sought a preliminary injunction to lift the order as their lawsuit works its way through the legal process. While the injunction was not granted. The cases still in the early stages will keep you informed when we hear more. That's just one of this summer RV trip challenges this year, but despite the many concerns, one in four Americans plan to take some sort of an RV trip in the next twelve months to get that one in four of all Americans plan to take an RV trip in the next year, and this is according to a survey that was released last week from the RV Industry Association. The reason why so many wanted to travel is something. We've been reporting on the RV LIFESTYLE DOT COM blog and And that's because of covid nineteen is people shy away from airline travel? They are expressing concerns about staying in a hotel and more and more are buying and renting RV's and to do a summer RV trip in their self contained vehicle the national media is calling this. The Year of the RV and we've been telling you. This was coming and each week we hear about more people buying our vs camping trailers, sight unseen, and the demand remains very
