Our friends over at Go Fast Campers started a brand new podcast called “You’re Really Out There!” We were lucky enough to be part of Episode 1: Volcano Eruptions & Modern Medieval Suspension.
Check Out the Show Notes Below.
Desk to Glory give up their day jobs and get rid of their apartment to travel to the arctic, only to find themselves back at home, living with their parents. Meanwhile Scott from family-owned Deaver Spring Inc reveals why no matter who you are and how hard you try, you’ll never get Mr. Deaver on the phone. Callers ask about safety while camping in Mexico and side stepping the cartel and learn many local Mexicans also ask similar questions about the US due to gun access.
