Zach and Sarah are back in Atlanta for a last minute work trip. After being on the road (without the RV) for two weeks (give or take), they are anxious to get back to their cozy home on wheels. Kip Dunlap joins the show to share his thoughts on Atlanta and the best things to do and see on a weekend trip to the city.

Kip is active in the community and has a genuine love for Atlanta that is not blind, he works on various improvement projects but always has time for a bicycle ride around town (which is also how he commutes) or a cup of coffee. Listen as Kip provides his recommendations for what to do in Atlanta.
