RV podcast: Author, hiker, boondocker, adventurer John Soares

Author, hiker, boondocker and adventurer John Soares has written a number of books on boondocking, travel, hiking, adventuring and more, and we get the lowdown and some great tips in this week’s podcast interview.

We also have potentially the most innovative RV layout we’ve seen, a ridiculously named great gadget, and we bask in the increasing darkness of the lunar eclipse. 

Mentioned in this episode:

John Soares is passionate about encouraging people to spend time outdoors, which benefits them both physically and mentally. His books are focused on making trails and hiking more accessible and approachable, and he hopes to get more people camping and boondocking. He’s happiest when he can combine camping and hiking into one adventure, and he travels in a Kia Sedona.
