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.
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?
We do not have any pets
We spend most of the summer at Arrow Lake Provincial Park. It has 30 paid spots and 10 free spots which you can hop from one to another every 23 days if there is one available. This year has been great but some years it is very full and hard to find a spot. We are planning a trip to California this winter and hope to boondock along the way.
Thunder Bay, Ontario
We recently purchased a 2013 Kodiak, 24 ft. long with a huge slideout. Love it to bits. Pull it with a 2011 Ford F150 ecoboost. This truck absolutely loves pulling the rig up hills.
Had a great evening visiting with Bill and PJ. They are Welcome to return. But they must stay longer.
It was a real pleasure to meet Billl & PJ. I just wish we had more time to spend with them.
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.
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.
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.
Our first boondocking was a great opportunity to meet very nice people in a quiet place. We appreciate a lot!
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!
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!
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.
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.
Not only friendly but very helpful.
We had a great time exchanging stories over a glass of wine.
I hope some day they will visit us in Arizona.
A great 1st stay as Boondockers! Our Host was very welcoming and accommodating right from the start. We enjoyed our evening of good conversation filled with stories and laughs. Thanks for going the extra mile and helping us out with our tire issues. Thanks again for making our 1st Boondocking experience memorable.
We’ve appreciated Bill and P.J.’s hospitality and generosity. As Bill said, we came as guests and left as friends.
Thank you Bill and PG 😘
We arrived as strangers and left as friends. All in less than 24 hours. It's saying everything! Big WOW!
Incredibly kind people !
Beautiful & calm property.
Thank you sooooo much for helping us with our broken van. It means so much to us :-) I can’t thank you enough for being that generous .
If ever in Florida, let us know:-)
We have enjoyed staying at each other’s homes and have played music together. Such a blessing! Their host location is lovely, easy access, quiet ...you are surrounded by nature at its best.
This People offered us a wonderful hospitality and we enjoyed our stay for one night! We had a good conversation with cool Drinks, thank you a lot for all the Information about Thunder Bay!
We spent a lovely evening sharing travel stories with our hosts and their friends! Nice, quiet countryside location not hard to get to. Highly recommend a visit!
Wonderful, interesting and welcoming hosts. We were very appreciative of the time we spent together in the afternoon and evening.Having electricity and WiFi was beyond our expectations. Easy access to town.
Our hostess was very friendly and made us feel very welcome. We had a glass of wine with P.J. the discussion was very interesting. We also talked about there and our travels. The location is beautiful and quiet. We had a wonderful time. We highly recommend this place.
We very much enjoyed our stay at Posthole Pond. Our host and hostess were very welcoming, and freindly. They are very nice people We also enjoyed our friendly chats with them. All the amenities were as mentioned in their profile, and more. Their place is quite enjoyable, beautyfull, and quiet. It is without hesitation that we recommend this location to other boondockers.
Thank you for hosting us in your beautiful Place. Thanks also for having so much Trust to us to lease us alone on your property. We really enjoyed the nice conversation with a nice beer and tips for us where we should Go.
If you ever come to germany you are welcome staying at our house.
Safe travels Michelle and Stephan
We stayed with Posthole Pond for four nights and had a wonderful time! They showed us around Thunder Bay, helped us with phone and computer issues and entertained us with music and great conversation. I highly recommend staying with them if you are able,they are a very fun couple!
What interesting people our hosts were, and what a beautiful home they have! A great new addition to Boondockers Welcome! We have a wonderful time with them, learning about their very diverse backgrounds and interests, and sharing travel stories. Great hosts!
