Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are in our mid seventies. He is a retired heating and air conditioning contractor. She is retired sign shop owner and previously, secretary. We enjoy camping and travelling. We live in the country, close to a city of about 110,000. He is in the process of restoring a Model A car and is a tinkerer of everything. She enjoys watercolour painting. He is a private pilot . We have family in Texas (Houston and Dallas) and spend Christmas with them and sometimes spend the winter there but most winters we spend in Florida.

We have an apartment in the basement of our house and most times it is rented and someone is here in case there is a problem.

Skills & Expertise to Share

He can fix almost anything. So can she. Today she was bucking rivets on the airplane door. She is the computer guru but still has a lot to learn. Doesn't anyone over 40?

Favorite Boondocking Locations

We boondocked our way from Thunder Bay, Ontario to Lodi, California, via a stop in Houston to visit family - 2 winters ago. Had amazing hosts and really enjoyed the trip. We also used Marianne's e books to find out of the way spots for "shunpiking". The accuracy of her directions is perfect.

Had a great time!

We really enjoyed these guests. Especially sitting around the campfire listening to their duets on the guitar and harmonica, and his singing all our old favorites. We look forward to having them back any time they are passing through this area.

pickin, buddies

It's always nice to jam with fellow musicians, fellow Canadians and fellow rv travellers. It was a pleasure to host them and I am sure our paths will cross again as we drive west through Thunder Bay.

Love these folks

What a pleasant couple; the kind you just enjoy being around. We tried to get them to stay longer. We’re going to try to get to their place in Canada sometime as they are a BW host too. So if they ping you with a stay request, you’ll be glad you accepted.

Arrived as Strangers, Left as Friends

Those were Posthole Pond's words to me as they left to continue their journey. And it so true--in the short time I hosted them, I felt like I had made good friends. Bill and PJ are a lovely and interesting couple, both with such warm hearts. They have not been shy about living and they have so many fascinating stories and experiences. They definitely know how to live the good life!
Bill & PJ were very respectful guests with a giving spirit. I expressed my trepidation about leaving on my first road trip in my new (old) Pleasure-Way and no sooner said than I got lessons on how to operate the "house" that put my mind at ease. But it gets even better: We discovered that my furnace was not working properly. This is Bill's area of expertise and I almost couldn't believe his kindness! He took the furnace apart and fixed it!
I have had the best experiences hosting Boondockers (Thank you Boondockers Welcome) and my time hosting Posthole Pond is certainly no exception. I work in a field where I see the worst of humanity (criminal law); hosting folks like Bill & PJ restore my faith in the goodness of people.
I hope our paths cross again.

Bill and PJ were very gracious hosts who made sure that we got power for our one night stay. Unfortunately the timing wasn't great for us to have a longer visit. I would highly recommend them.

These hosts were amazing. We had a great time visiting with them and visiting Thunder Bay in general. The hosts have a great location - quiet but close to things to see and do.

Thanks so much for your generous hospitality. We hope we'll meet up again!

A must stop on your joirney

Bill & PJ - where to begin, - the nicest, generous of spirit,, kindest, fun and funky couple. We believe Bill could fix anything and PJ is a gifted artist. They opened their home and hearts to welcome us and we are so grateful for these lively two people. We were the last of the 3 boondocks to roll in, first time for our hosts to have 3 rigs., It was splendid!! Loved meeting the others and just a perfect way for us to lose our boondocks virginity lol !!

First BW experience

We were absolutely blown away with the generosity and hospitality of Bill and PJ.
Not only did they provide an awesome place to stay, but also provided power, water and wifi too. Their happy hour entertainment you will have to go and experience, the best!
We shared our time there with two other boon docker couples who also have become Canadian nomads!!
As our first boon docking hosts, they have set the bar extremely high. We will share our experience with others and they too will have a great time with Bill and PJ.

We enjoyed our hosts so much we decided to stay an extra day and checked out July 4.

Happy hour!

Thank you to our wonderful hosts in Thunder Bay. We had such a great time around happy hour or should I say hours getting to know you both. Listening to you play guitar and harmonica was the icing on the cake ❤️ Thank you for being so welcoming, it was an unforgettable visit.

Jed and Louise Alaska Adventure

PJ and Bill were fantastic hosts. We only stopped for one night but they made us feel like old friends. PJ provided us with a tourist package of Thunder Bay as soon as we arrived. After some sightseeing they welcomed us into their home where we spent the evening chatting about travel and my time in the Navy. We would highly recommend stopping here for a couple of days; not only for the sights but the hospitality of this couple is second to none.

Wonderful hosts we never met

Our host graciously allowed us to stay even though they weren’t home. We enjoyed a very quiet level spot in their beautiful yard. We appreciated all the information they left in their hosting bucket of things to see and do in the area. Thank you very much hope to meet up with you in Florida.

A Great Place

We really enjoyed our stay. A great spot and wonderful hosts. Unfortunately, our family ended up with the flu while we were there so we didn't get to visit as much as we would've like. We highly recommend it!

Amazing

Wow! What a wonderful couple! This is our second boondocking experience, and they set the bar high! Had a lot of fun exchanging with them and fellow boondockers around a beer for 2 of the 3 nights we were there.
I hope you will visit us when you come to Montreal when we're back from our big trip!

Thanks :-)

Great again

Who said something about this subject? Happy that we had another host. This stay was exactly why we’ve chosen for the boondockers concept. And nice to experience that Bill and PJ have the same ideas. Great to enjoy the wine with you and your friends an learn from eachother. We also appreciated learning the addresses for the cheese and buttermilk. Sorry we spend too much, but enjoyed the Gouda. If there would be an opportunity to travel in France we can’t imagine that we could miss you. Thanks for all.

Great but Brief Visit

Our only regret was that we arrived later in the evening and had to leave early in the morning, would like to have visited longer with this engaging couple. We hope to do a more leisurely visit on our return trip.
