My name is Geoff and I'm a retired hydrogeologist/civil engineer. Mary Jo is a retired high school principal. We have been RVing in a variety of units since 1985, tent camping before that.

We both retired a few years ago and moved from the city to the country to enjoy a quieter more, relaxed lifestyle. My hobbies include raising fresh and saltwater fish and amateur astronomy. I have several telescopes that I am still learning to use and I am now building a small observatory. I collect rocks, minerals, fossils and meteorites. I keep busy working around the property and enjoy travelling by RV. Mary Jo has two horses that are boarded near our property. She used to ride in shows and competitions and now rides for recreation. She enjoys music, reading,and trying new recipes. Sometimes she knits. She loves singing and is president of her local chorus that does well in international competitions. We both enjoy the outdoors and camped in a small tent through the 70s and early 80s. We got our first C class in 1985 and have since had another C class and a large diesel pusher. We have traveled with a 5th wheel since 2011. We enjoy swimming, hiking (in moderation) and often travel with an inflatable kayak and standup paddleboard.
We always travel with our dogs and do not go anywhere that they are not welcome. We are new to boondocking and look forward to meeting hosts across the country.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I usually travel with a telescope and am learning about stargazing and astronomy. Mary Jo is a good cook and an enthusiastic singer and choir member. She is good with horses and dogs.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Just starting to Boondock now since learning about the club. Hope to travel to many areas of eastern and western Canada over the next few years. Favourite destinations in the U.S.A. include the Outer Banks in North Carolina and the Florida Keys.

Hydrogeo's Hometown

We live on a rural property in the small village of Mono, Ontario, about an hours drive northwest of Toronto.

Hydrogeo's Rig

We have a 2012 38 foot Keystone Montana 5th wheel with 4 slideouts and a 2008 Ford F350 pickup. Not too good in tight spots and appreciate a pull through site or room to maneuver.

Pleasant evening under the stars

Hydrogeo spent a few days with us last week. We both had busy schedules but found time to spend a pleasant evening chatting around the campfire and looking at the stars. They brought us some nice reading material on an area we were interested in - and thank you for the wine!
