Traveler's Aid: The Perfect Camping Vacation (5/17/2002)

Real Audio Listen in RealAudio      help Need audio help?

Bruce Northam, author of "Globetrotter Dogma," Tess Vigland, host of the Marketplace Morning Report, and Tom Steinstra, author of "California Camping" tell stories about the best, most picturesque campgrounds they know. Tom stresses that the perfect camping vacation has more to do with attitude and a willingness to go that extra 5 percent. "Another five percent," Tom says, "is all you need to seperate yourself from the rest of the camping pack."
