Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I am a 48 year old self-employed sign shop owner. My shop is next door to my house and I have a 70 foot commute. My biggest passion is my bus conversion, which I travel south in every winter for about three months. My pomeranian runs most aspects of my life.

Cozy and Everything You Need

Dan was a welcoming host. He helped us get set up and even offered firewood and a fire pit. The boondocker spot has a picnic table and an area to sit and relax in the wooded site. We appreciate Dan's hospitality and give him the highest rating possible.

dadesigns4u's provided an amazing boondocking experience!

This host was thoughtful and engaging in every way, really. He eagerly provided us with an overview of the area: maps, personal recommendations, and even set out fresh water for our pups just prior to our arrival. We enjoyed sharing some fireside time with him and his family, as well as his pooch TURBO! Thank you, again, dadesigns4u, for MORE thank just a boondocking experience!

So Great!

This couple and their family were a delight! They were understanding of the vagaries of cross country travel and let me change plans with grace! The location is very special: very rural but close to the highway and the lake. My spot was level and very pretty! They sent me off with directions to a scenic drive of the shoreline. I would have liked to stay longer. I hope they will come stay with me in NY! Molly

Wonderful Host

We had a great stay with dadesigns4u. Nice spot, friendly accomadating people, and a fabulous area to explore. Within a short drive to a couple of nice towns with beaches, dining, shopping, movies, etc. We highly recommend this host.

Great Site, Great Location, Great Host

Host provided excellent directions with pictures to get to the site. Very nice level spot with electric and water. The property is quiet and surrounded by apple and cherry orchards. Close to Frankfort and Sleeping Bear Dunes. We had a great time sharing bus stories with the host and meeting Turbo.
