theVAP Episode 367: theVAP Retires

The Finale Clip Show!

It’s time. After over 16 and a half years I’m retiring from theVAP. 

We’ve had a great run. Much longer than any of us thought. I like to think that we have helped hundreds, if not thousands make their Airstream dream come true.

Thanks to all our listeners! Hope to see ya down the road!
