Our fantastic first Boondockers Welcome stay

We met a wonderful couple, Linda and Marion (aka SchoolmarmandGpa) on our very first Boondockers Welcome adventure. They were unbelievably helpful in every regard, including fixing some issues with our motorhome and giving us towing advice. We had a chance to check out their new motorhome and GrandPa's racing car. (This is not something one can experience every day!) They offered us to stay longer and we gladly did so in they nice and spacious backyard. Their dogs were as welcoming as them and we made friends with them right away.
All in all, our stay was awesome and we hope to meet them again in the future.
Linda and Marion, your hospitality was terrific, we'll recommend you to every boondockers!

Great quiet spot!

We had a nice peaceful stay here. Linda and Grandpa were both very friendly and welcomed us as soon as we got there. We will definitely stay here again when we are in the area!

Worth the drive to North Ft. Myers

Well this was a surprise. A comfortable parking spot with hydro and water what more could you ask for. We also made friends and stayed longer then anticipated. They are two wonderful people and we had great conversations and they even showed us around town. I would recommend this spot. WE plan to meet again on the road. Thank you again Marion and Lynda.
