Waste of time

I had such high hopes when I discovered this podcast, but they were quickly squelched. Inbetween the countless ads and intros and outros you might gleam a biggest of uself info. But I I didn’t learn anything worth my time wading through half a dozen episodes. (See I tried it, I really tried it.)If you want one sided interviews where the guest hardly gets to speak or get a word in edge wise this is your podcast.Being a woman camper is great. We aren’t second class citizens or have lower than average intelligence. I felt like the host was speaking to the listener as if the listener was a child. “Pull over when you are tired.” No kidding Sherlock. I want my time back.

Found her on Instagram and love it!

I would have never dreamed of camping if I hadn’t listened to your fun & informative podcasts! I loved how it calmed any fears, answered all of my questions and most of all made me feel “I can do this” whether in tent, van or camper!

You'll be going places and doing things!

I love Janine Pettit! She is a good mentor, on podcast, blog, and Instagram. I have learned so much about camping comfortably and safely from her podcasts especially. She never talks down to us, but is always encouraging. And she is informative and friendly to listen to; I love her little laugh! Her humility in sharing her camping journey makes me feel like she's just a few steps ahead and is turning around to take me by the hand to go with her. Thanks, Janine!

I have enjoyed Janine Pettit's podcasts immensely. She presents information in a clear and succinct way, with humor and understanding. She is always encouraging rather than talking down to novices such as myself. As a single woman wanting a change in my life, I had been thinking about buying a trailer and taking off when I discovered her podcast. Camping can be a lot more complicated now than in the days of my childhood pop-up trailer, but Janine makes these things seem simple I.e. The episode on tires. Thank you for the encouragement --and I am really leaning towards getting a Little Guy Max! Kelly B, Texas.

Inspiring Podcast for City Folks Who Dream of Camping

I've been listening to this podcast for several months and I thoroughly enjoy the attitude and spirit of the host, Janine Pettit. She really makes camping and the RV lifestyle much less intimidating for those who have no idea where to begin. Her joy in the outdoors and love of our national and regional parks is really inspiring, and she gives great tips and advice.

This is new for me.

Too many commercials

by gkcbutlerfam on Jul 11, 2017
Rating: ★★★☆☆

I used to love the podcasts but am so sad with the commercialism. The podcast starts at 10:30 and is one long promo/commercial. I looked forward and was excited to hear about the Yellowstone trip but it's tainted :( with the freebie trailer.

I enjoy a related camping podcast and now listen to Janine some too. First I picked and chose some topics and have since subscribed, but it's always still interesting to the non-girl camping enthusiast who may or may not have girl camper friends or spouse. Listening is kind of like chatting with camping friends. Especially when Jeremy or Stephanie from the RV Family Travel Atlas Podcast make an appearance. Interviews with other people are also an interesting and informative treat.

Girl Camper

by Go Dawgs🐾🐾🏀 on May 31, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

I love this podcast! I've always been a camper growing up camping with my family. After marriage, my husband and I what camp with our children. After 35 years of tent camping we bought a used small travel trailer and loved it! On our little Mallard trailer's last voyage before picking up a new and larger travel trailer, my husband died suddenly. After listening to Ginny McKinney on the podcast I found myself not wanting to give up on camping. I have since purchased a class C motorhome and have become a girl camper. Sometimes meeting up with family, Sometimes meeting up with friends, and sometimes just going with my little dog Bella. I am able to be a solo girl camper because of the inspiring stories I hear every week on this podcast. Thank you Janine Pettit for your podcast! You are so inspiring and encouraging. Keep on encouraging other ladies to go places and do things. God bless you!

Janine got me back into camping. I had seen her with some other women from Sisters on the Fly for a few years, and I recently found a post card she had given out about Girl Camper, I had taken notes on the back, hoping to check out this movement of womens's camping. I didn't have a trailer and didn't realize then you don't have to have one to join in. Janine gives a voice to women who want to adventure, to make new friends and have new outdoor experiences, she really does give you the impetus to get going on your dream. Thank you Janine for helping me fulfill mine!

I have discovered a whole new world through this podcast. Thank you Janine for each and every episode! Sometimes you make me cry from the stories on your podcast and sometimes you make me so proud to know a trick about how to back up my camper. But always after each episode I feel empowered to get out there and go places! The things I have learned from your podcast are probably more then I would have ever learned in a lifetime.... both about being a camper and a girl!

Love Janine. We're a hotel kind of family or rent a house people... but for some reason, I want to change that. I like to have my "stuff" cook my own food etc... I decided that either a camper or RV is for me even though we are NOT a camping family. I'm going to change that! I found this podcast and her info is so good. I'm going to be so sad once I finish all the back eposodes and have to wait for another one to come out. Thank you Janine. I joined SOTF because of your info today. Thanks, Rashel from East Texas

Girl Camper has everything I look for in a podcast - interesting topic, consistent regular posts, wide birth of info in topics, fun and engaging hostess. If you are a camper of any kind - vacationer, full timer, girl, boy, long time camper, newbies, all ages, all kinds of vehicles and tents, group camper or single camper- there is new and interesting information for you. PS my very manly man boyfriend who has camped and built cars is impressed with the information and how thorough it is. Way to go girl!!!!!

So fun and inspiring!

This is one of the funnest podcasts I've listened to. I've really enjoyed Janine Pettit and the info she brings, along with her guest speakers. I've been inspired to get my own camper so that my husband and I can bring our dog along on vacations. But after discovering Girl Camper, I realized there is a whole community of women traveling to places and having fun. I can see myself hitching up and towing, as well as meeting new people, even if my husband isn't with me. This opens up so many opportunities.

I have been RVing for many years while raising my 5 children. I have recently downsized to a small, Shasta reproduction that I will be taking on the road for my own adventures. It was while researching my possibilities that I happened upon this podcast. What a treat! Janine is entertaining, informative, and fun to listen to. I lookforward to crossing paths with her someday on the road.

As a (girl) T@B camper owner since 2008, I find these podcasts to be very helpful! Love listening to these in the car on my way to and from work - dreaming of the day I can retire and travel this great nation (3 years, 4 months and 8 days) - and picking up great tips along the way!

I'm a guy who loves to camp. At first, I was not interested in listening to this podcast. Why would a guy listen to a podcast about "girl campers"? Well, after listening to this podcast, I was hooked. Yes, it is about girl camping, and encourarging women to camp. BUT, it is so much more. These same inspirational and encouraging stories are about real life and real people. Everyone, man and woman, can learn and be inspired by other people and their stories. In addition, there is a great deal of educational content. Everyone can learn something new. I highly recommend subscribing to this podcast for all man and woman.

I really hate to be the first person to leave a review less than five stars. I do like the podcast and all the valuable information and encouragement it provides as well as the stories that are told. (The episode with the Ginny interview had me in tears!) My only issue with this podcast is the constant interrupting by the host. It gets the interview way off topic at times and it seems rude to not just let someone answer the question they were asked or tell their story. For that, I have to give it only four stars.

I found Girl Camper podcast a few months ago. It is my "happy" commute time favorite! I love Janine's friendly, upbeat spirit. She encoures women in all things camping, rving & travel. She takes the mystery out of the mechanics of a trailer from buying your first to hooking it up to head down the road. Her adventures with other women are so entertaining, it just makes me want to join! Even if you don't have plans to travel, her podcasts are great fun!

I’ve been listening to podcasts for a long time, but this is my first review. I think I binged listened to the first twenty or so episodes, so when they ended I was bummed. Now, I can’t wait for Tuesdays to come around, so I can listen to the next episode. This is full of a little bit of everything from trailer/rv education, camping tips, destinations, interviews with girl campers, and encouragement. You don’t have to own an rv or trailer to listen to this podcast. Give it a try. You’ll be glad you did.

I just discovered the “Girl Camper” podcast and have been binge-listening from the start all week. I’m learning so much about getting into RV camping (I’ve been a tent camper my whole life but always dreamed of having a little camper of my own). Janine gives such great info, has fun and knowledgable guests and just makes me want to spend a weekend around the campfire with her and all her Girl Camping buddies!

Any woman who's had a dream to do something wild and wonderful, to travel, camp and meet new people but didn't know where to begin or had it in the back of their mind so many fears about setting off on their own have to listen to this podcast. Excellent information for and about women campers. I'm so proud to belong to this group Girl Campers. Good job Janine.

It has been a long time since I pulled out my IPod Shuffle, charged it, and downloaded a podcast. However, after reading Janine's blog, I was just too curious and had to check it out. After all, I was like many women — searching for something relevant to my “wanderlust” anxiety, and wanting desperately to connect with kind/generous, willing spirited, and like-minded, women. Ironically, these just happen to be the qualities of a #girlCamper, those that Janine reaches out to each week with her informational, relevant, and inspirational podcasts. The Girl Camper podcasts have become a new best friend and have made my 90 minute commute to work, something I look forward to. Thanks for the amazing content Janine, and for doing all you do for the industry — and for us. Your campfire chats and carefully crafted interviews help long-time enthusiasts explore new options. They also ease newbies (like myself) into the industry — gracefully.

I've been a camper for 25+ years, first in a tent, then in a pop up and my new A-frame is currently on order. I've camped solo from Maryland to California. Even so, Janine has taught me new things about camping and given me renewed incentive to go out and 'do things.' I love her style. Listening is like having coffee with an old friend. There's something here for you if you are a camper wanna be looking to learn how or an old timer planning your next adventure. Five golden stars.

It may be awhile before I can go on a Girl Camper trip, but Janine will keep me inspired and dreaming!
