Do you know or have you hosted this user?

My husband works on his own with removing old trees, installs sewer systems, very mechanical. Myself, I clean houses for a living and we love spending time with grandchildren, because they make me laugh and they like my cooking better than there mama's lolol.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Well, I guess I said this already, oops!!! My husband is a very good mechanic, and if can't figure it out, his son can. We are awesome people and enjoy fun!!!

canwoman's Pets

We have 2 cats and an occasional stray. We also have three chickens so you have to watch out for poop because they just seem to go any where. We also have Louis, our Shitsu, he is 12 years old. We do love our animals.

A wonderful finale to our US travels

After a superb visit last year, we were kindly invited back for the grand, once a year, valley party. We decided to make this the limit of our 6 month US trip and we were not disappointed! Not only was it a lovely relaxing stay, but the party was really the icing on the cake - demonstrating the true friendship and hospitality that we have had the pleasure to receive in all of our Boondockers Welcome Stays.

Treated like family

We greeted at the Valley with such a warm welcome! John and Cindy treated us like family, exchanging stories of life and just enjoying each other's company.

Such a nice place, good people, we will definitely stop again when we are in the area.

Beautiful place and beautiful people.

This was just a spot half way between where we came from and where we were going. When we arrived it was beautiful and specious and the hosts greeted us with a huge hug. What makes this place special is the people. So friendly and accommodating and gracious. We have a big family but we all made an instant bond with these two. They are incredible and my kids all want to adopt them as their boondocking grandparents. We will be back!

Friends more like family

Absolutely loved our visit with Cindy and John. An amazing couple that we found to be fun and talented. We fell in love and now added them as adopted family. God bless you. Look forward to seeing them again.

A wonderful stay in the Valley with some special people

We hit it off straight away..... arrived as guests... left as great friends. They kindly allowed us to extend our stay and that had the double bonus of spending more time with these lovely people :) We had a tour of the Valley and shared time with their friends too... much fun was had by all, a memorable stay - sad to leave.

We had a fantastic time with John and Cindy. It was like spending the evening with old friends. We had so much in common we stayed up half the night having a few drinks and a good laugh. Wish we had more time to spend with them and really hope we get to meet up again some day. You couldn’t ask for better hosts!
