Dear Pennies & Pallers, After a few weeks away, we're back! After spending some time catching up, we hop into some short letters that involve gift cards and a brand new calendar. Then we read a letter from a listener who's doing a cross country road trip and wants some suggestions on what route to take and what to see along the way. Plus we discuss: Tesla RVs, Rory's hatred of okra, go-to road trip food, and methods to game the hotel cookie system. Sincerely, Your Pen Pals Daniel & Rory Learn more about your ad choices.

I grew up in Petaluma. I would NEED to be on drugs to float down that river, Quinine, Penicillin, some anti-parasitic and a Z-pac just for good measure. Brave souls.
