Rich and Ginny Quackenbush - Retired Bucket list trip

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are Richard, a recently retired pastor who has been on disability for 6 years, and Ginny who is a recently retired school teacher. We have lived in Florida most of our lives, and are eventually moving to Tennessee. We have just sold her mothers's place, where we had been living and purchased a pre-owned Gulf Stream BT Cruiser - 24 foot and tow a Nissan Versa four down, which is now our only home. This trip is a goal we have had to see as much of North America and it's beauty and it's people as possible before we settle down in Chattanooga TN. We are brand new to the RV world, although we pulled a pop=up since 2006, Our last trip with the popup was from Florida to Maine. We are looking to hear from those who have much more experience then we do in this endeavor, and to learn about things and people who live off the main highways. We have traveled quite a bit in our lifetime and have been to the Caribbean. Africa, Europe and the Middle East. Some day we hope to visit the land down under if our health and funding hold out. We are quiet campers and look forward to meeting so many of you on our way. We thank you for offering us a welcome respite from the noise of this world.

Great Guests

It was great to have PastorQ stop for a night with us. We were a little busy with other things but it all worked out ... We got them hooked up to some electric and they set out to roam around our city for a bit ... The next morning we had a nice visit and although they were on the last leg of their bucket list before settling into their new home we covered a bit of their journey with them ... Welcome to Tennessee PastorQ ... Keep on Keeping ON ... Larry and Sarah ...

Great guests!

We really enjoyed having this couple stay with us. We sat around the kitchen table and chatted about our mutual travels, church, and other topics. We felt like we had known them a long time, and will look forward to a future visit!

Communicative and good people!

We sure hope these guys have smooth waters from now on as they continue their bucket list journey homeward, as they have certainly had to deal with some 'stormy weather' recently, yet they still remained communicative and kept us informed during their delays in getting to us. We enjoyed a great chat and hope other Hosts make them deservedly welcome.

Great guests!

We were gone when PastorQ arrived. They settled themselves into the site and stayed for a couple of days. We had a nice visit with them when we returned home. They even helped unload a couple of cords of firewood! We would welcome them back anytime.

Got stuck with these 2

Wish they could have "stuck" around for a few more days. Nice visit and easy to get along with. You won't be sorry for hosting them.

Wonderful first guests!

We are new hosts to Boondockers Welcome and PastorQ were our first guests. They arrived when they said they would, were helpful in making a needed adjustment to the parking area, and fun people to share a conversation and a few laughs with. Quiet, friendly, and easy-going -- a very enjoyable first experience with backyard boondockers!

Pastor and Mrs. Q were great guests! The kind of people you would like to have for good friends. Would enjoy having them back! (Ironically, just a few days earlier, we had both stayed with another Boondocker host at the same time. They were already there when we arrived after dark and we left in the morning and never even saw their rig, as it was on the opposite side of the building that we were! Didn't know it until they got to our place and were telling us where they had stayed!)Small Boondocking world!

The Perfect Boondocker Guest

PastorQ and his wife were great guest. They were quiet, respectful, and very pleasant to talk to and be around. He even offered to help me with an outside project. They are welcome back to our home any time, even if we are not here. Thanks for the good company!
