We discovered the boondocking life six years ago when spending our first winter in a fifth wheel exploring the SW United States. Since then, we've spent four winters in the south and have also hauled our current trailer to various destinations in Western Canada. We travel in the winter and spend the spring/summer/fall seasons on our small farm on the Alberta prairie riding horses, growing hay, and enjoying the many birds that have made our property their home. Our children all have four legs — two dogs, three horses, and two cats. We enjoy music, particularly folk, bluegrass, country, and blues, and even play and sing a little ourselves.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Quartzsite, Lake Havasu, Cibola Nature Preserve, Telephone Cove, Casino del Sol in Tucson, Wickenburg,

Northern Hitchhikers's Rig

We have a 2007 29.5' Hitchhiker fifth wheel trailer with two slides on one side and one on the other. Our tow vehicle is a 2014 Dodge Ram. We sometimes tow a 16' trailer with a Yamaha UTV behind the fifth wheel. Despite our double trailer rig, we do not require a pull-through spot as the UTV trailer can be easily disconnected and moved around as needed.

Great hosts

We spent 2 nights here in prairie and took a day trip to Banff. We were their first boondockers an d they made things very easy for us. Directions were precise and they were very deligient with communications. Really enjoyed our time here and the conversation with our hosts. We would love to connect again in the future
