Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We have been married 42 years and have had an assortment of RVs since the mid 70s. Recently retired and purchased new Super C to travel and enjoy each other and sights within the USA. "Grandpa" has been a professional Drag Racer with NHRA, IHRA,Prostar,and SMDRA. He raced motorcycles from the 70s until 2008. Now we have slowed down the pace and race a Chevy S10 in the eighth mile sportsman class.
Joined Boondockers in hopes that travels will be having us see locations other than race tracks.

Skills & Expertise to Share

"Grandpa" is a motor head, excellent mechanic and engine builder and tuner. OCD for details on any and all mechanical things. Schoolmarm is great with kids, computers, crafts and can also help tune and clean carbs. Grandpa is a professional Drag Racer. He has won championships on motorcycles but at 70 years he has given up the motorcycle for an S10 Chevy truck but not given up racing . Linda is the crew chief on and off the track!

SchoolmarmandGpa's Pets

We have a dog named Camo. She is 12 years old and goes EVERYwhere with us. She is combo Catahoula and Blue Healer. We think she is gifted as she follows and understands everything we say.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Hope to do more recreational camping than just traveling to and from racing venues.
Boondocking looks like it beats Walmart and rest areas.
First Boondockers experience was with family just outside Houston, TX. Excellent experience. This is a highly recommened resource.

Great quiet spot!

We had a nice peaceful stay here. Linda and Grandpa were both very friendly and welcomed us as soon as we got there. We will definitely stay here again when we are in the area!

Worth the drive to North Ft. Myers

Well this was a surprise. A comfortable parking spot with hydro and water what more could you ask for. We also made friends and stayed longer then anticipated. They are two wonderful people and we had great conversations and they even showed us around town. I would recommend this spot. WE plan to meet again on the road. Thank you again Marion and Lynda.
