Ultra Host

Expired Guest

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We each are on our third or fourth career. We find some interest in everything the World anound us presents, and are impatient to travel more, and actually visit the places we have only read about. If you are well travelled and a good storyteller you will be especially welcome!
I have a shop full of tools and can help diagnose and repair any small issues if they need urgent attention. But I am not a repair shop, even though I am willing to help.

Bogie's Pets

We travel with a pair of large black canine co-navigators.

Nice couple with well behaved dogs.

They stayed a few days while waiting for a package to arrive here. It was a pleasant experience. My small Pomeranian mix fell in love with their huge Doberman. He was quite gentle with her. They are invited to return on their next trip to this area.

Thank you!

Very nice hosts, Kevin was very helpful. The spot was nice and level on their driveway. If you are a light sleeper, heads up that their is a lot of road noise. I turned my fans on the 2nd night, and slept much better. :-) Other than that, we enjoyed our visit and talking with the hosts and getting to see their very unusual motorhome. Fun! Thank you again for letting us boondock at your property! πŸ˜ŠπŸ•πŸ˜Š

July 2021

Great stay

Our stay was very enjoyable and comfortable. Parked in the shade, level, water available, convenient and a most interesting and welcoming host!


July 2021

Stayed hottest day of the year

The record high temperatures was unbelievable in the state and Bogies was kind enough to suggest shady spots to tolerate the heat. All in all it was a very quiet and restful stay in which I got a-lot of work done. Im thankful for the hospitality. Also loved to view their cherry tree, brought me alot of joy!


June 2021

An Excellent Stay!

We had such a nice stay at Bogies Den. We were absolutely comfortable parked here, and welcomed with such friendliness. If we ever pass through the area again, we would be happy to stay here again!


June 2021

Very accommodating

We had to arrive late due to an unexpected RV repair. Our host was very gracious and met us as soon as we arrived to explain where to park and where the electrical hook up was.

The RV parking was spacious. A great location near Olympia.

Great Host! Beautiful Spot.

Bogies Den has a beautiful, roomy patch of grass, trees, flowers, rabbits, birds and even deer, all nestled in convenient suburbia. I thoroughly enjoyed hearing about his travels and learned a lot about refurbishing classic motorcycles.
A nearby bicycle trail provided me with wonderful activity on a gorgeous afternoon with glimpses of Mt. Rainier as I pedalled.
I enjoyed my stay and would happily visit again, if they'll have me.


March 2020

Great host

In these tough times it was nice to stay here on our rather rushed trip back to Canada. Great location and hope we can come here again to properly explore the area.


March 2020

Very convenient for us- lots of room

Was a very convenient spot for us for couple of days with flat area, 15 amp and water, and interesting motorcycles! Thank you for having us.

Awesome couple. Cool Location.

Locations was perfect for visiting my sisters friends who live near their location. Very interesting couple with 3 very sweet dogs I had the chance to meet. If you get the chance to go on the tour of the place take it :) Very cool. Hope to see you guys this winter.

A night off the road...

Not far off the highway, but fine country style setting.
Made to feel welcome after a long day in holiday weekend traffic on the road.
Nice paved site under trees and by the garden, we settled in early for a good nights sleep.
Had a pleasant visit with our gracious hosts and their sweet dog in the morning,
then were off for another day on the road

Hidden Gem! You may pass it by but you'll be glad you came back

What a lovely quiet place! A nice shade tree to park under with a nice level spot. Not to mention how inviting the host are. We happened to come at a great opportunity time, as he was in middle of I've those projects he can do by his stuff but a second set of hands is preferred. So it was great to have some time bonding in the garage. They are such a fascinating couple with so many great stories hidden. You will feel right at home. They have so many great stories to share and boy what wealth of knowledge. He helped diagnose a problem that was way easier than I originally thought it would be . Looking forward to meeting them on the road sometime soon!


June 2019

Great Stay!

Pleasant and comfortable stay, close to Olympia/Tacoma. Pretty property and very gracious host. Flexible when our schedule changed because of RV repairs.


June 2019

Fascinating Hosts

I found Bogie to be quite fascinating in his life's accomplishments as well as openly friendly and accomodating. Meeting these hosts has been a real treat.


June 2019

Great host!

Really enjoyed seeing the BMW motor bikes that Kevin rebuilds! Very interesting! We had a problem with our RV that needed a repair and he recommended us to a place not far from his home. Went there the next morning and the owners went out of their way to do the repair and get us back on the road.
We never would have know about this shop had we not been staying at Bogie! Thanks so very much! Super hosts!

Apologies on my mix up of coming and going.
See you around.


May 2019

Very welcoming.

We stayed just one night at Bogies Den. They have a passion for vintage motorcycles and have raced them.


May 2019

Super nice guy

we parked or 35 ft class A here while visiting my sister in DuPont. easy to pull in and turn around. as a bonus, I got to see his passion for motorbikes.
this motivated me to do the same and soon I will be hosting in Bakersfield .CA.
God Bless You Bogie


May 2019

Beemer people!

Good rv conversations with Kevin, especially liked his rig. My opinion, it was ahead of it's time.
Lots of BMW bike history here as well.
Thanks for hospitality.
Warriors won...barely😊

Our host welcomed us warmly, and gave us a tour of his motorcycle restoration passion!!

Super friendly and accommodating! Great area not too far from Tacoma and Seattle. Cannot thank them enough for their kindness!


October 2018

Great spot and welcoming hosts!

As our host, Bogie, on his site states, his place is off a busy street and somewhat hidden by trees, and has a driveway with low hanging branches at the foot and not very visible from the street.
We were glad to have his personal directions as the GPS wasn't the proper way to approach this address.
Once up the driveway there is so much space it is easy to manoeuvre and we had no problems driving out the next morning. Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful, and easy to chat with. Bogie generously showed us his hobby machines- you need to go just to see what is there! Very interesting and great to learn about. Thank you for the hospitality and we recommend your site to others who may be in the area.


October 2018

nice place to stay

They are warm and welcoming. The spot is nice and secluded


October 2018

great stay

A great host, very helpful


September 2018

Perfect little hideaway

Fantastic host that was very laid back and kind. Their space worked out perfect for us for 2 nights and was in a great location. We visited for a while and they told us about harbor days down in Olympia. We took the kids and had a great time. I wish I were neighbors!


September 2018

Great couple in the heart of town

Hosts were very kind. Not intrusive but very welcoming. They let the kids pick blackberries off their bushes. Plenty of space to park.


November 2017

Hidden Gem

Bogie is new to BW just like us. We are so glad that they were willing to host us. They are full of surprises. They are both so talented, and generous. I'm not sure that you'll see a cooler rig out there, than the one they have. I'm not even going to spoil it for you. If you want to stay with one of the most eclectic hosts out there, and see some of the coolest machines around, pay Bogie a visit. Not to mention they know so much about Olympia and the surrounding hidden gems to go see. We definitely hope to run into these guys again, whether on the road, or on our stop through Olympia.

Friendly Couple

A good time was had by all as the saying goes. Their dogs were not a problem at all. I would have them back again.
