Occasionally we receive interesting photos or stories from our hosts and guests. Recently Sunny27 reached out to us with a photo from her visit with a host in France. We were so intrigued about her travels as she used four hosts during her adventure. We decided to ask her more questions about her experience with our European hosts.
If you’re subscribed to our weekly newsletter, you’re probably aware that we’ve had a constant stream of new hosts joining. For the past few months I’ve been saying, we have “almost” 2000 host listings. So I’m pretty excited to announce that this week we reached and surpassed that milestone. I think that’s cause for a bit of a celebration, don’t you?
On most online platforms including Boondockers Welcome, you need to choose a user name for yourself when you register. This is the public name you will go by; other users of the site will know you by this name. Think of it as a nickname, your handle, screen name, or login name.
If you have an active guest membership and have logged in recently you’ll know that we added a few items to the rules of etiquette for guests and that you’ll be required to agree to them before you can continue.
Thank you to SmokinSoleResort, who sent us this story and the photos to go with it.
As you read it, I'd like to draw your attention to this line: "It's different each time you host. Some guests like to hang out with the hosts for part of the time while others just park and say thank you and then go do their own thing."
(We wouldn't want guests to expect this level of hospitality from every host or, in fact, from this host on every occasion).
It's summertime and boondocking is easy and free - until we need to run the A/C!
Boondocking is camping without hookups. Yet 80% of Boondockers Welcome hosts generously offer electric, water, or both. Let's be sure hosts know how much we travelers appreciate this option!
