Eco RV

Ever wanted to see the inside of an eco RV? I’ve been traveling on the road in this 2009 diesel Road Warrior by Weekend Warrior for the last 10 months. After finding out that I would be filming a television show about wild foods all across America, I needed to find a way to not be separated from my son for long periods of time. My cousin suggested an RV and it seemed like a great idea. The network I would be working for was not too excited about the idea of me driving the RV to filming locations, thinking that I could possibly be breaking down on the side of the road and unable to meet productions schedules. So, the trade-off was that I buy a new one with all the warranties and bells and whistles.

Hale Paliku

Here’s a little slice of paradise on Maui’s north shore…called Hale Paliku. Owner and visionary Ryan Luskin has created a beautiful art-filled vacation villa that is really a treat to stay in. Of course one of the draws for me is that he has planted over 100 fruit trees on the property! Imagine stepping out the door, to your own jungle garden filled with macadamia nuts, star fruit, persimmons, bananas, taro, purslane, miracle berry, lemons, passionfruit, mangosteen, noni, bread fruit, and more. Give Ryan a shout out about renting Hale Paliku, as well as his eco adventure tours.
