For years I have been both a host and hosted traveling cyclists with a similar organization (warmshowers.org) and now after selling my house and finishing a fantastic career (health sciences librarian, Medical Society Exec, Adult computer skills instructor, and community volunteer) I am planning on full timing in my RoadTrek 210 Popular campervan. I am a senior Returned Peace Corps Volunteer, having lived and worked in Azerbaijan from 2008-2010. I have cycled and camped many places in the USA/Canada and the world, and done housesitting/petsitting in the USA and in New Zealand. I hope to combine all of these experiences along with the hospitality of the Boondockers Welcome in the coming years. I generally travel solo, but occasionally I am joined by one of my 4 adult grandchildren, or perhaps a friend. I love to be spontaneous and drive the old highways - so I hope to find new places and make new connections on Boondockers Welcome.
Computer skills (Word, Internet, Excel, mobile devices) but not techy stuff like repairing computers or installing networks.
I am traveling with my 6 year old English Shepard -- calm cousin to the Border Collie. Her name is Perri and she is well behaved and leash trained.
I am a nature loving sort of person - so the ideal boondocking location for me would be a smaller community, national forest, or farmland area. If caught without a place to stay -- I have done Walmart! I am always on the lookout for rail trails to ride my bicycle.
Port Huron, Michigan is on the border with Sarnia, Ontario Canada at the base of Lake Huron (one of the Great Lakes). Port Huron is a medium sized community with lots of green trees and blue water.
2013 RoadTrek 210Popular (Class B) No slide outs, no racks (my bicycle is a Brompton folding bike that fits inside out of sight), NO BLING! Self-contained. The RoadTrek 210 P looks much like a 'conversion van' - built on a Chevy 3500 extended van chassis, it is 22ft long, not quite 9 ft tall, and 7.5 ft wide.
Bonniejean and her beautiful English Shepherd Perri just stopped by for a place to stay on her way back to the cold in Michigan. Would loved to have visited longer but it was cold and rainy here too.
As with many guests, sometimes there's just not enough hours in the day. BonnieJean and her pup were a delight to have stay. Would have loved to spent more time getting to know these two, and was happy to have them here. The communication was some of the best I've ever experienced! What an excellent experience!
Enjoy the rest of your journey!

We are pleased to hear that you found all that you needed at our property and in the area.
Very good guest. Unfortunately I had another obligation so missed visiting with her.
BonnieJean spent a quick overnight with us. She was a quiet and considerate guest.
It’s so nice to meet travelers and hear their tales without leaving home! Bonnie was full of information on volunteer opportunities I have not yet tried. Love her dog too. So nice to play frisbee again.
I enjoyed having Bonnie Jean stop in for a short visit. She was no trouble at all.
It was pleasure to have BonnieJean for the night. She was quiet and easy to host.
I did not get the opportunity to meet BonnieJean, I did see her rig when I arrived at work early the next morning but she had already headed out before I could pop by and say hello. I hope she will make back again for a few more days.
Guest and her cat were very nice. It was a pleasure to have them here. I would welcome them back any time.
Very nice Lady with lots of interesting experiences to talk about. Her dog was fun to play frisbee with too. Both are welcome to stay again any time! It would be fun to live that lifestyle and just wander for a while.
