SouthernCharmed's Pets

We are very blessed to have Huckleberry our 10 year old Basset Hound. He is very friendly with children, adults, and other pets. Rosie is in voluntarily servitude to two cats that roam the property and our home.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Just getting started but very interested in visiting Big Mike in Homerville, Georgia.

SouthernCharmed's Hometown

We both grew up in Southern California but Bob's military career has moved us around the US and Bob around the world. We have lived in southwestern Georgia for eight years now. We are surrounded by mostly agricultural acreage yielding peanuts, cotton, corn, pecan, and pine. Americus to our northeast is the sleepy town waking up. It's very apparent that the city managers are very interested in drawing in the tourist traffic. They have recently begun hosting monthly "First Friday" events offering diverse attractions. This last Christmas season Americus has been our destination for holiday socialization. At about twenty miles south, Albany, Georgia is the closest "metropolitan" area but is lacking in a cohesive organized central core to attract much tourist attention. I've heard from many sources that for whatever reasoning this is the desired outcome of the Albany leadership. There is hope though. The last few years has witnessed the arrival a few more big name eating establishments and December saw the opening of a brand new brewpub in the downtown district.

SouthernCharmed's Rig

Rig Type: Class A

37 feet long

2015 Tiffin Allegro Open Road 36LA towing a 2017 Honda CR-V on a dolly. Two driver side slides. If we cannot connect to "shore power" at least 30 amps our residential refrigerator requires us to run our generator for a while twice a day to keep batteries charged. Our OEM Onan generator is considered quiet by most standards not like a bargain priced utility unit purchased at a big box store. Having a towed vehicle limits the distance we can travel in reverse to about ten or twenty feet depending on conditions. Turning any coach and towed vehicle around requires a much larger distance than just about any other RV. "Three point turns" are out of the question.
