Jeremy and Stephanie Puglisi are the co-hosts of the weekly RV Atlas and Campground of the Week podcasts and the RV Atlas blog. They are also the authors of See You at the Campground: A Guide to Discovering Community, Connection, and a Happier Family in the Great Outdoors, and Where Should We Camp Next: A 50 State Guide to Amazing Campgrounds and other Unique Outdoor Accommodations, and the Acadia National Park Adventure Guide. After buying their very first pop-up camper more than 10 years ago, Jeremy and Stephanie caught the RV bug in a big way, and now spend over 70 nights a year in their travel trailer with their three sons, Theo, Max, and Wes, and sweet Maggie the pup. You can follow along on their adventures (and misadventures) over at RV Atlas.
Upon learning of their youngest daughter’s severe food allergies, Jennifer and Jerome Braga knew that traditional life, traditional social activities and traditional travel was going to be out of the question. So in 2013 they purchased their first travel trailer and set out to experience some quality family time in a food safe, allergy-free environment. After their first year, the family caught the RVing bug and they purchased a brand new 28-foot travel trailer with the ideal kitchen to support their family’s travels around New England. Today they take their business on the road in the winter months, homeschool, and tour the southern United States in their new 42-foot Fifth Wheel. Their journey, their allergy story, and their savory recipes can be followed through their blog at www.ouronechance.com.
