European Road Tripping In 1975 w/ Marshall & Debbie Hockett

Extra Pack of Peanuts Podcast European Road Tripping In 1975 w/ Marshall & Debbie Hockett

Today is all about #vanlife but we are going back in time to 1975 to see how much it has changed over the years. I am happy to welcome Marshall & Debbie Hockett from Tripping1975.com, who, in 1975, hopped on a plane to Europe, grabbed a VW van named Banana, spent a year exploring the continent…and then, wrote a book about it 45 years later!
