After 18 months of touring the U.S. and Canada, we're back in Utah to establish a home base, take care of some business, and shop for our new rig. We're excited to return the favor of so many memorable stays with BW hosts by hosting ourselves. Rodd is a professional interpreter and Ashley is an accountant. We both enjoy the flexibility that being self-employed allows and look forward to many more adventures ahead.
Ashley is an accountant, specializing in small business accounting, payroll, process automation, compliance, and consulting.
Rodd is a man of many talents: Satellite TV (both Dish Network and DirecTV), Window Washing (available for hire - hosts get a discount! :) and a language professional/translator/interpreter (Spanish/English).
Yes - cats! They love to get out and stretch their legs. They are very shy but will often warm up if they are around you, or if we are around. They listen pretty well and come in at night, so as to protect them from nighttime predators.
We have a handful of favorite spots across the country. We always love hearing where fellow RVers like to go! We really love anywhere along the coast.
American Fork, Utah
We have a 21' 1989 Tioga Montara, with a smart car in tow!
We want to adopt them! and their cats. Very gracious guests.
We loved seeing them again, with their kitties! They are always welcome back. Loved the banana bread!
We enjoyed meeting and talking with meaningfulmiles! We are glad you enjoyed your stay. If you travel this way again, please stop and visit.
I wasn't home to meet these two, but was still happy to share my parking spot for them. They left no trace, so I couldn't ask for more.
Come back sometime so we can at least say "hello!"
Great visitors , and now friends. We loved sharing travel stories with each other. Not only where we’ve been, but where they’re going.
Hopefully our paths will cross again someday.
Rod and Ashley were our very first guests and what a delight they were! We did not know what to expect and we couldn't have been happier. They are an interesting and happy young couple. We shared a meal and shared many stories during their time with us. They have 3 very well behaved cats who we enjoyed seeing and who were able to get some fresh air while staying on our property. We hope to follow their travels and remain friends. They will certainly make you smile!!
Two young professionals living the dream. We had several great conversations with them. Welcome back anytime.
Meaningfulmiles were our first guests since joining BW early in September, and we couldn't have asked for better. They were with us for three nights, and although we hardly saw them due to conflicting schedules, they were very quiet and respectful, and we enjoyed their kitties. We would highly recommend hosting these lovely people, and hope they'll visit us again!
Ashley and Rodd were great guests -- they were super appreciative and such a joy to be with. On their first evening, they showed us how to use our Instant Pot, the meal we shared was fantastic, as was the company! It was a treat to have Rodd and Ashley visit us and become friends. We're looking forward to hearing more about their adventures in life!

This was our first BW experience, and we couldn't be happier. These are just he sort of people we had hoped to meet when joining BW. Any host would be lucky to have them stop by, and definitely take the opportunity to swap travel stories!
hope to see you again here, or on the road somewhere!
It was a pleasure to have them stay here. Nice quiet respectful people. Would welcome them back anytime.
We enjoyed having this couple stay with us a couple days. Very quiet, polite, great guests. Welcome back any time.
My only regret is that we didn't have more time to spend with "meaningfulmiles" . Quiet, respectful guests with adorable cats !! We hope they enjoyed their stay here. They are welcome back anytime.
We were truly blessed to have meaningfulmiles stay 2 nights with us, sharing great admiration for each other as well as helpful tips that they have a bounty of after being on the road (with 3 sweet cats) for a year and a half. Awesome energy folks that felt like family!!
This couple spent three days with us and we really enjoyed having them. They had a lot of interesting information about their travels. Would welcome them back any time.
It was so nice to have Rodd and Ashley come and stay with us again on their return run back to the US.
We had a good visit, shared good conversations and a lot of laughs.
Miss them already!
An added bonus, their three cats got along pretty well with our 5 when they were allowed out of the RV to stretch their legs.
Oh yes, and it seems we are —somewhat distantly— related a few generations back!
Safe travels and Happy Homecomings!
We thoroughly enjoyed spending time with this sweet couple! Love their dedication to their goals. Hope to see them again down the road!
We enjoyed "meaningfulmiles" being with us for a couple of days. Since we're old, it's appropriate to say, "They were young!" We enjoyed making their stay comfortable and being welcoming. We also enjoyed hearing their stories about their travels and their upcoming plans. They were a happy couple. Their stories and good attitude is an aspect of BW that keeps us welcoming others to stay with us. We wish them well and valued our time together.
2 beautiful people on an incredible adventure. We were very lucky to have them arrive at our home and be a part of our lives. Hope to meet again in the future. Safe travels!
Very nice young couple. Easy to talk with, good to get to know.
Had a pleasant visit with them. Talked half the night about destinations, places visited and experiences.
Would have them visit again in a heartbeat.
As a matter of fact, they are planning to come through again in a couple of weks. Yay!
This couple arrived hungry so we fed them. They had been delayed by a visit to the vet so we were happy to be of some help. They let their cats run around the yard and that went well. Ann went to a sick neighbor’s house to help catch up on house cleaning and they pitched in to help also! They are welcome back anytime.
These folks are delightful. So glad they were able to stay
4 nights & see many of the local attractions, businesses, etc.
The cats are sweet & gentle...completely well behaved.
Absolutely recommend this couple. We wish them safe &
Can’t say enough about R and A! Had a wonderful time chatting and dining together. I am so impressed with their life goals! And R made my windows shine! 😊
Hope to see them again here or on the road!
Really enjoyed getting to know these guys. We had a lot of fun & was sorry to see them go. They were always willing to pitch in & lend a helping hand with any work being done around here. We shared a couple meals and had great conversation. Hope to see them again soon
They could have easily become my "kids". Ashley and Rodd were considerate, quiet, and helpful. You will be blessed if they choose to boondock with you!
We greatly enjoyed hosting meaningful miles on their trip with a mission.
The cats are troopers! Our animals also enjoyed the attention they received from our guests.
We hope to see you again soon.

Rodd and Ashley were wonderful guests. They are well versed in the art of conversation and we don't think there is any subject you would not be able to exchange thoughts about. We really enjoyed their company and that of their 3 cats that seemed to feel right at home on our property.
We would recommend Rodd and Ashley to anyone and they are welcome to return any time they like.
Good luck in your future adventures and safe travels!

As Rob and Ashly are now about a year into their "full-timing" experience, there's no doubt they are enjoying it. Like all RVers they've had a few issues with their RV, but it doesn't seem to spoil the adventure they're on. We enjoyed them being here. Hope they'll come back when they return to NC. ty
Glade we were able accommodate your stay. We enjoyed a good chat on the porch and It’s always fun to talk about everyone’s travels. That’s how you find out about all the cool spots to visit.
We have enjoyed Robb and Ashley very much while they stayed with us. They are very friendly and listened to our suggestions of the area. Our sons loved their cats and were always looking forward to finding them under their RV. We learned new things about the RVing lifestyle from them. We look forward to meet you again one day either back in Sanford or on the road somewhere. Safe travels!
Ashley and Rob were delightful guests, and we loved the cats too. The four days went too fast and we hope they will pass our way again.
We had such a good time getting to know this couple! Ashley had to fly home for a few days, but we enjoyed socializing with Rodd before dinner every evening and Ashley both before and after her trip to Utah. We hope they come back someday!
We hosted them over Thanksgiving and they were a delightful couple. Friendly and quiet. We had interesting chats. Would definitely host them again.
LOVED HAVING RODD & ASHLEY AT OUR HOME, VERY SWEET, HONEST, CARING COUPLE.....
THEY REALLY HELPED US OUT, WHEN IN NEED. SAD TO SEE THEM GO, LOOKING FOWARD
TO HAVING THEM BACK AGAIN !!!!
SAFE TRAVELS AND KEEP WAXING, LOL

I enjoyed having Rodd and Ashley camp at my place for the past week. They are a wonderful sweet couple exploring the U.S. to see what's out there. You couldn't ask for better campers. I didn't know they were here most of the time. Their animals were a joy to have around as well. No problems at all. I'd have them back anytime.
We had a fun time hosting this quiet couple. Very friendly. Their cats were fun to watch while they explored the desert. They really enjoyed our sunsets. We would definitely host them again!
We enjoyed meeting this great couple and wish them well in there travels.
We enjoy there time here, and the 3 cat were no problem at all, had great communication as while.
Enjoyed their company and shared traveling apps and stories. We all have so much to learn and their are many friends out there. Safe travels!
We had another great stay with our BDW hosts! We stayed in a very cute neighborhood and our hosts were super welcoming and gracious!
The hosts were extremely nice! Comfortable area. Thanks for the zucchini & raspberries!!
We very much enjoyed our stay. Friendly and gracious host. Nice easy shaded spot with lots of parking options. Nice walking park at the end of the block. Close to freeway, but still quiet. We’ll be back!
We stayed here while visiting our kids in the area. Great driveway space and our hosts were kind enough to loan us an extension cord so we could hook into their power.
Would definitely stay here again when in the area. Thanks for the hospitality!
Meaningfulmiles were great hosts. Very nice and accommodating . We appreciated their hospitality and enjoyed having a chat about rv traveling! The location is safe and quiet but also close to many shops.
The hosts live in a quiet area with friendly neighbors and near lots of shopping. I enjoyed talking with them, meeting their cats, and listening to the ducks.
After welcoming me, the hosts kept their distance, Covid-wise, and even provided electricity for my rig. Very convenient location for an easy walk of a couple of blocks to many restaurants and shopping. Kind-hearted people!
Our stay with meaningfulmiles was very positive. We pulled up late evening and said hi, then walked our dogs around the park just across the street. Would definitely stay again.
The hosts were very welcoming and offered 15amp, wifi, and garden vegetables! It was a pleasant stay.
Our hosts have such a nice friendly disposition. Not only where they helpful in accommodating us, but they also made us feel like old friends. Great place. Easy access. Located near services.
Rodd and Ashley are a great couple and it was a real pleasure to meet and visit with them! Quiet and pleasant neighborhood and a good night's rest. They graciously offered access to electric, wifi, laundry, etc. which I didn't need for the night but surely appreciated the kind offer. Thanks for everything!
We enjoyed having Rodd and Ashley with us for a few days. I think the kitties enjoyed their time exploring here as well. You guys are welcome backing time!
