Many people dream about a life of travel, but what is it really like living on the road full time? As a follow-up to his first book, Take Risks, Joe Russo’s Tales From the Open Road takes you along for the ride as he and his wife Kait turn their dream into reality and navigate their first year as full-time RVers.

The memoir offers a personal account of the mostly good and sometimes challenging adventures (and misadventures) that Joe and Kait face when they trade their house and possessions for life in an RV.
