I love God my family and am thankful I was born in these USA.

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I'm a Christian,serve my local church as a Deacon,and Sunday School teacher. I'm very close to retirement after close to 40 years with the same company. I started working as a Industrial Mechanic and now as a Technical Assistant. We traveled all 50 states and 9 Provinces of Canada with our 3 daughters. I enjoy the outdoors by hunting and riding a dual sport motorcycle.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I consider my self a Jack of all trades and master on none. Which means I know a little bit about everything and not much of nothing.

monroe's Pets

I have a black lab and use her when hunting wood ducks. My dog's name is Belle but she doesn't travel with us.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

We enjoy the mountains I guess because we live in the coastal swamp area with an elevation of 13'.

monroe's Hometown

We live in the small community just outside of Orange Texas in the south eastern part of the state.

We Love Our Return Boondockers Welcome Guests!

It's always a great privilege to host this couple at Candy Cane Corral. We enjoy their visit so much and the time is always too short!! We look forward to the next visit when they come our way again. We wish them Godspeed and safe travels as they return home.


June 2021

Friendly guests

Was glad we could give you a stop for the night. Travel safely!

Wonderful guests

It was a treat for us to welcome Monroe to our driveway for the second time. Monroe has an intriguing hobby cutting lumber on a 1 man sawmill. Since lumber prices are at all time highs I had the opportunity to get educated on the topic.
Monroe and spouse are congenial guests and welcome to return anytime.


March 2021

Very easy to have.

This couple had a full program of visits with relatives planned. We wished we had more time to visit with them.
They had many interesting stories. We regret not having more time to discuss the issues relating to running a one man sawmill.

Great to host Monroe

Had a great visit. Very nice couple with lots in common for what I like in RVng. I’m happy to visit with folks enjoying life around the country.


October 2020

Come again!

Fine guests, friendly, and easy. We do hate that often our internet connection is not reliable, so often folks have to go into town for that service. We're working on this, though! Anyway, this couple should be welcome at your site too. Happy trails!


September 2020

Nice folks.

Hope to see you again sometime on the way through!


September 2020

Great To See You Again!

It was wonderful to have you come home again on your travels. Be safe and we'll see you the next time you come our way.


August 2020

Welcome anytime

Although my visit with them was short, as their stay was also, I’d welcome them back anytime. Very sweet couple, just bad circumstances (hurricane), so we just didn’t get a lot of face time. But they’re welcome to come back and stay anytime. Y’all be safe. Ps: Thanks for checking on me after the hurricane!!! That was very thoughtful.

Another Wonderful Boondocker Experience!!

It is always a great pleasure to host these two at Candy Cane Corral. We enjoy their company and fellowship and just pick up right where we left off from the last visit. We look forward to many more return visits and wish them Godspeed and safe travels. Our prayers go with them as they journey. Thank you again for choosing Candy Cane Corral for your rest stop.

Great couple

Thoroughly enjoyed having them stay. Looking forward to visiting them in Texas sometime.


October 2019

Easy going!

These guests were a pleasure to host. Even though it was short we had nice conversation. They were only here for one day, but we hope they can return to the area for more of a visit. Their cute little lightweight trailer made it easy for them to turn around and park in our yard. I recommend monroe to all other BW hosts!


October 2019

Came back again!!

Glad I could help you a 2nd stay!!

Short, but Delightful!

Would have loved to have spent more time with these kind folks, but they were on a VERY special mission. Very respectful and excellent, timely communication! Would love to have them back again when they have some time to relax. Best wishes and safe travels to a truly pleasant couple!

Very positive experience.

Very nice folks. Good communication, gave notice before arrival, left the area spotless, and were very quiet. I would not hesitate to host them again. Thanks Monroe for staying at Mountain Top Breeze. I hope you enjoyed your visit to this area!

Fun Folks and gracious guests

Monroe and his wife spent the night with us. They were gracious guests and easy to accommodate. They love traveling as much as we do so had a great time talking about our ventures. We hope to host them again in the future.

Terrific Texans!

My husband & I got the pleasure of hosting Carrol & Pam. They are the sweetest couple! I enjoyed getting to know a little about their story and chatting it up before my kiddos swim meet. They left a very sweet handwritten note and a little gift behind. Meeting people like them that appreciate the same things in life as my family, makes hosting such a great experience! Have fun with your family in Northern Illinois. We hope to see you again.

Safe Journeys,

What A Blessing!

It was truly a blessing to host this couple at Candy Cane Corral. We felt such a kinship of spirit with them and felt closer to our God after being in their company. We look forward to return visits and wish them Godspeed and safe travels on their journey. Perry, Ginny & Georgia

Nice visit

I enjoyed having Carrol and Pam stop in for an overnight visit. The small Casita will fit anywhere, so size isn't an issue. I was't home much, but they were not any trouble at all. They are welcome back anytime.


April 2019

Monroe visit

These Texans came in for a short visit did a little site seeing on their motorcycle and we got to have a short visit. Their small camper is quite cute and seems to serve them well. Love to have them back anytime.

Nice folks from East Texas

Enjoyed hosting Pam and Carrol, just wished they'd stayed a bit longer so I could have gotten to know them better. But their Grandkids were drawing them back home, so they only stayed one nite and left early in the morning. Hope we can meet up again!
