Back for their second show, I consider the Boyink family like “returning champions.” They are still living in an RV with kids, but their oldest — now 19 — has moved out on his own.

We talk about traveling with teens and watching them become their own people. They also describe their company and how they find extra work and reduced costs through working at the campgrounds and RV parks where they stay on this brand-new episode of Epic Education Radio.

Tune in! And please share!
