Three words that best describe our current motorhome:
Safety, drivability, quality
The best thing about our motorhome:
It’s easy to drive.
We decided to buy a motorhome because:
We love to travel and shoot and edit video from the comfort of our own home.
John: filmmaker, cinematographer and RV travel video producer for John Holod Productions & RV Adventure Videos. Jodie is co-producer. We produce RV Adventure Videos to help RVers save time and money on their next RV trip. We spend most of the year on the road producing travelogues and presenting them to audiences around the country.
The best thing about motorhoming:
The people we meet on the road. Everywhere we go, we meet great people.
Our favorite motorhoming destinations:
Alaska, Key West, Maine
Our all-time favorite motorhome trip:
Ferry trip with RV up Alaska’s Inside Passage
Our “dream” motorhome trip:
Our perfect day of motorhome travel:
Drive five miles, and then rest by the campfire.
Our worst motorhoming experience:
Sliding backward on ice into a ditch in Pennsylvania in February 2007.
The best addition we’ve made to our motorhome:
Our mobile editing studio so we can edit our videos on the road.
If we could change one thing about our motorhome:
To spend more time with friends on the road!
Something about motorhoming that we know now but did not know when we started:
Almost everyone we meet on the road is a great person.
When driving the motorhome the most important thing to remember is:
Don’t drive too many miles in one day: Drive less, see more.
We joined FMCA because:
The fellowship it offers to RVers
Our advice for other motorhomers:
Be considerate of friends and neighbors. Stop to smell the roses and don't drive too many miles a day.
Fishing, snorkeling, great beaches, great food
Life is short, so have fun!
Fourth of July, because of the fireworks
Athlete or celebrity we admire most:
No athlete or celebrity. We admire the real working people of our country who go to work every day and make a difference.
Favorite restaurant: Ruth's Chris Steak House
If we were given a free shopping spree at any store:
We’d go to Brookstone for massage chairs.
The Voyager in Tucson, Ariz.
Bear Paw RV Park in Valdez, Alaska
