SPACE DETAILS: Can host Class B only please. 24' or under.
I live in a 1940s suburb of Columbus, with a detached garage on the alley in the back. Honestly, there isn't much of a reason to stay in Columbus unless you are a football fan here for a game. But it is on the way to a lot of places and a good place to break up a long drive.
The back alley is how I access my detached garage, and you can park on my concrete parking pad. You can plugin to the house electricity through the garage. The water can be arranged if needed, you would need at least a 50 foot hose.
Clintonville is kind of a hippy area of Columbus, lots of trees and greenies. I am near High St and Morse Road intersection.
-- No smoking at all - I am super sensitive and can smell it many houses a way.
-- It's a residential neighborhood, next door has a baby, so limit generator to no more than an hour at a time between hours of 8am - 9pm. I don't have a generator so I don't even know if this is difficult? I'm kind of putting it on par with when you would run a lawnmower.
-- General quiet after 10pm.
-- Not a fan of drunk people, so if you are the type that enjoys sitting and drinking a 6 pack every night, probably not a good fit.
The alley you'd access the pad is single lane, and there are trees along it. The big garbage truck gets through fine each week so I don't think it should present problems. It is straight.
I do a lot of last minute trips, so if you request and I don't respond, it's because I'm traveling.
I'm a pizza aficionado and there are two wood-fired places nearby I could recommend. My favorite breakfast sandwich in the whole world is 10 minutes away. Columbus isn't a highlight reel city...not many touristy things to do here. If you say you don't like touristy places, then you'll love Columbus!
I had met EleanorRigby earlier in December, on the 3rd and had enjoyed my stay at her host location. I had put in a request to make a brief stopover on my return leg. She had graciously accepted. It just so turned out that I arrived at the location kind of late and had to leave real early before daybreak as I had quite some distance to cover, so I was unable to meet her for the second time. Everything went smoothly. This time, I was "self-contained" and did not need the electric hook up that she had offered. Again, my deepest gratitude to this fantastic host. I am still in awe of all the traveling around the world that she has done.
EleanorRigby is quite the traveler. She took time to recount some of her memorable stories. She also has the knack for storytelling. Just hope she publishes her book about her travels and advise to other similar travelers. My "self contained" RV proved to be "not so." One of the batteries in the bank of 2 decided to die. I was grateful for the electric hook up. Daisy, her dog was a delight too. Hoping that our paths cross again.
Thank You again. Everything was quite easy at your location. Good luck when you start traveling.
Hey alley parking spot so peaceful considering how close it is to everything. She is such a nice lady, very open and intrequed to help other travelers! Looking forward to seeing her on the road soon! Highly recommend this in town stay your a smaller rig.
Amiee was exceptionally accommodating during the Midwest heat wave. We parked on the garage landing, which was just the right size for our [email protected] teardrop trailer. She even lent us a floor/box fan to help us keep cool.
We would look forward to visiting her again if our itinerary permitted. The neighbourhood she lives in is very safe and walk-able. Coffee shop about 3/4 mi away...great for a morning stroll.
