This is an open series where our hosts can document their travel experiences

This begins our series about our RV trip by looking at the planning process. We give a suggestion for a nice online course that is not too expensive, and offer some tips on using Google Maps in planning your trip.

enjoyed the show

I enjoyed the show. I hope you'll put some pictures of your camper in future episodes. Also, I wonder if you might try some open source tools in future trips, side by side to see how they compare to google's offerimgs.

I'm glad you enjoyed it Brian. The first few episodes are about my planning process, and there are no photos involved other than screen shots on the accompanying Web page, which is always linked in the show notes. In later episodes where I talk about the trip itself, the accompanying Web page will also have links to photos on my Flickr account.

So far I have not encountered any open-source apps for RV trip planning. They may be out there and I just haven't found them yet.
