Whether you are a rookie or have been camping in RV’s for years, you can make a mistake now and then. Even I have made foolish mistakes, and I’ve been RV’ing for several years now.

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.
We love to hear from our hosts and guests about their experience using our site. Occasionally we have hosts that write in to tell us something unique they do for their guests. We spoke with Our3Acres who have only been members for a short time but they have some great advice for hosts and guests.
“Fixin’” is a real word here in the South! It’s a word that conveys intentionality and serious purpose with a commitment to follow through. Don’t confuse it with “fixins”, which means the dozens of side dishes you plan on serving with Thanksgiving dinner.
A few months ago, Bob Nelson (host extraordinaire) told us he would be attending his local RV Owners Association rally in June, and that he planned to give a presentation about the joys of being a Boondockers Welcome host. From Bob’s report, it was quite a success!
We have been living full-time in our RV for over a year now and, though we are retired, we must still work to maintain our lifestyle (someone has to pay for all the maintenance and repairs).
Years ago, on our first RV trip, we found ourselves boondocking on BLM land in Arizona in a place that fits the description, “the middle of nowhere”. The story of what happened there is one I’ve often repeated since – whenever we’re asked if we've feared for our safety or had any bad experiences when camped so far from civilization.
