Episode #45 – Hotels – the Good, the Bad, & the Ugly

Listen to Episode #45 On-Demand

This week, we discuss advances in hotel accomodations over the past 50 years. At the same time, the nickel-and-diming at some properties keeps getting worse. And an ugly few hotels and motels may actually be hazardous to your health! Join us for a lively discussion about hotels on this week’s edition of Road Trip Radio!

Our weekly travel segment Along the Way… heads down to the hills of Northern Alabama for a scenic drive along U.S. 72. We’ll be stopping at the Unclaimed Baggage Center, Russell Cave National Monument, and the U.S. Space Center – three unique stops located within an hour of each other.

We debut the new segment Travel Q&A, where we talk about passports, passport cards, and enhanced driver’s licenses. Jeremy opens up The Travel Archive to listen to a couple of classic commercials from the golden age of radio, and we take a call from Australian internet radio tycoon Paul Hubbard in our popular comedy segment On the Lighter Side.

Episode #44 – A Drive Down Florida’s Atlantic Coast

Listen to Episode #44 On-Demand

While much of the country sits in the deep freeze, join Jeremy and Dave as they head down to Florida’s coastal highway A1A for a scenic and historic drive down one of the most interesting roads on the East Coast. You’ll learn where to find the best beach scenery, as well as the best places to stop along this picturesque byway. The team start their voyage in quaint St. Augustine, home of the Fountain of Youth, and meander their way down the coast.

Also this hour we’re joined by Lincoln Highway enthusiast Brian Butko, author of the book Greetings From the Lincoln Highway. He’ll tell us about the history of the original transcontinental highway and share some of his favorite spots along the ‘Father Road’.

Join us for this week’s news from the roadtripper’s perspective on This Week in Travel. Lots of travel news this week, including a United Airlines ticket agent that was beaten ruthlessly by a crazed passenger, as well as an economical car (less than $7000) that goes on sale in 2015 that claims to get 84 miles per gallon.

Jeremy opens up The Travel Archive to listen to a few classic commercials from the golden age of radio, and fictional caller J. Howard Carter gets what he deserves in our comedy segment On the Lighter Side.

It’s another action-packed hour of travel, roadtripping, and fun on Episode 44 of Road Trip Radio, the travel show for the common man!

Episode #43 – Treasures of the Arizona Strip

Listen to Episode #43 On-Demand

The Arizona Strip isn’t a cut of beef, it’s the strip of land in Arizona north of the Grand Canyon that’s cut off from the rest of the state. As a result, this unique region – larger than Massachusetts but with a population of only 8,000 – holds scenic and cultural treasures that few ever get to experience. We’ll be visiting the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Kaibab National Forest, and the eerily majestic Vermilion Cliffs National Monument. Join Jeremy & Dave for an all-new episode where we explore the diverse landforms, monuments, communities, and parks of the Arizona Strip!

With this episode, we begin our second season on BlogTalkRadio, with all the travel fun you’re used to, like Along the Way travel segment, On the Lighter Side comedy, and this week’s news from the roadtripper’s point of view on This Week in Travel.  It’s Road Trip Radio, the travel show for the common man!
