We live on a small lot in town. It's a real trick to get our class A in the driveway, so most RVs won't fit. We can offer boondocking for small Class C's, Class B's, and truck campers. The biggest problem would be height because of a power line that hangs low over our driveway. Width may also be an issue. Contact me ahead of time and we can see if you fit. I have loved hosting larger rigs in the past and hope to have a larger property where we can host larger RV's in the future.
We are on one of the busier roads in town, a few blocks off of Route 66. It is paved. Our driveway is narrow and has a telephone pole right next to it which may make it difficult to navigate into.
We don't travel too much, yet, so we're available most of the time.
We are 20 miles from Springfield, IL, heart of Lincoln territory. There are many things for history or Civil War enthusiasts to do around here, including New Salem (about 45 miles away), Lincoln's Home, Lincoln Library and Museum, and Lincoln's Tomb. Other places of interest in Springfield are the Dana Thomas House (a Frank Lloyd Wright designed house), the State Capital and old state capital, and the Illinois State Museum. We are located right off of historic Route 66. We are about 1 1/2 hours from St. Louis and 4 hours from downtown Chicago.
Thank you for staying on your driveway. It was an pity, there were so many bugs, so we didn't talk much,but we had an good and safe night.

I so enjoyed staying at Mary's place! Their boys are delightful and they were all very welcoming! I took a long walk in Virden and really enjoyed the park and town square. Great Boondocking spot!
I stayed at marybright's for two nights, my first stay through BDW. It was a great experience. They were very welcoming and friendly, and helpful with directions for my day of sightseeing. I enjoyed my stay with them. Thanks!
We Boondocked with Mary and Matt and the boys for one night. What a lovely family! The twins were very interested in the operation of the Slide Out and the levelers! What a lovely spot and we got to see the million dollar sun rise peaking over the corn fields. Mary and Matt provided us with electric hookup and water was available. There is enough room in their yard to turn the RV around.
We were their very first Boondockers. Robert and Pattie
PS: Pattie is now knitting rounds! Thanks Mary
