Bob is retired from the US Army and now retired from another 20 years working to support our deserving military. Rosie is actively pursuing her career of taking care of Bob, a basset hound, two cats, and a small garden pond with scores of goldfish and koi.
Astronomy, woodworking, computer programming, relaxing.
We are very blessed to have Huckleberry our 11 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.
Just getting started but very interested in visiting Big Mike in Homerville, Georgia.
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 nine 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.
2015 Tiffin Allegro Open Road 36LA (gasoline engine powered) flat towing a 2015 Ford Edge. Two driver side slides. If we cannot connect to "shore power" providing at 30 amps in very warm or hot climates or 15 amp for cooler climes our residential refrigerator requires us to occasionally run our generator for a while 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 we cannot move in reverse without removing our vehicle in tow. 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.
Just hosted our first guest with BW. Great experience with our guests. Lots of great conversation and made new friends. The best part was Huckleberry the basset hound. Hope to meet up again in the future. Thanks for visiting with us.
Late arrival still met with good conversation and plans to return!
Visiting the Green Dragon Acres was far better that I ever expected.
I initially was just looking to delay my upcoming visit to Florida to avoid Hurricane Dorian.
But WOW! It turned out to be so much more as one of my favorite BW Stops of 2019.
I believe that we became real friends & I will definitely be looking forward to a return visit
&/or to see them again during our Happy Trails of upcoming travel.
"Southern Charmed" are both wonderful hosts.
They even allowed me to mow their large yard. Lol
My sincerest THANK YOU!
This was our first major trip from Jacksonville, Florida and our first boondock!. Stayed one night with my two sons and two dogs. We have a 39' Class A with toad. The kid, dogs and I will traveling the US for a year or so and having only driven the RV 4 times, including the trip to their house, I was quite anxious.
Bob was so helpful. As a newbie, I a lot of questions and he was happy to answer them. He even showed me a few things I had no idea what they were for! He even gave me some great suggestions for some upgrades on our coach to improve our experience.
We got to play ball in the field and the dogs absolutely loved being able to roam a bit. Seeing stars again was nice. We even got to hear the horses neigh. No frog chorus for us though.
Just before we left we got a tour of their rig, to see the fish pond (beautiful) and hang out with Huckleberry, Rosie and Bob chatting. We wanted to spend an extra day but our water was low.
Definitely country and off the beaten path but worth the visit! Hopefully we get to visit again!
Hope you guys have a great trip and can come join us fulltime!

There and Back Again with the Blake Clan
Great hosts, great setting. Loved the free frog concert. See you on our return trip
It is a lovely place to stay.
The hosts are very nice people.
Can be highly recommended
Beautiful spacious property, gracious conversationalist, could not be happier! Nighttime recording of frogs and crickets displayed on Kevin Doyle's Facebook page! Thoroughly enjoyed every moment!
We received a warm welcome. Lots of space, plenty of shade from high trees. Had nice talks with host, who respected our privacy also. Yes, there are frogs in the pond; they closed their session at 10 pm.
We can definitly recommend this location.
Rosie and Bob are very friendly and showed great hospitality. Thanks a lot.
Awesome and friendly hosts who made us feel at home... including our big dog Sophie. Many thanks to Huckleberry the Bassett Hound... he is such a friendly, sweet, and adorable guy who allowed Sophie to share his people and place for the evening. Enjoyed socializing and sharing stories with SouthernCharmed and even got a tour of their magnificent coach. When it got dark the night sky was beautiful. Parking was super easy for us and we were afforded the opportunity to select the spot to park... nice! We highly recommend stopping by and paying SouthernCharmed a visit... the name says it all.
My first time boondocking, it was a wonderful experience. Hosts were so kind. Hope our paths cross again. Thank you!.
So pleased to have met SouthernCharmed. No misnomer there! What wonderful hosts. Even brought me an adult beverage and spent time to "talk story". It was a lovely evening. Thank you so much!
We had a great time. Our hosts were very gracious. They will be great friends and we will keep in contact with them.
We had a wonderful time. Very peaceful setting and great host couple I such a tranquil spot
oldSarge and his lovely wife were the perfect hosts! My stay on their beautiful acreage was just what I needed!
Quiet. Easy to access. Multiple "sites" to choose from and friendly,knowledgeable hosts to make friends with!
Highly recommend this sweet space and the excellent people who provided it!
