Great Holiday Visitors!

These guys were friends of friends and now they are our friends! It was a short stay on a holiday weekend and it rained one evening, but we still had a great time getting know each other. Hopefully these guys will be back soon when they can stay longer. They are always welcome here!

GaRoadrunner are just some nice folks to have. Super willing to help and lend a hand where needed. Would recommend future hosts to accept their stay requests. Hopefully they will return to Sunny Hill and stay a little while longer!

Family! 🤗

This was Georgia Roadrunners fifth visit with us, and as always we were delighted to see them again. Our evening of fun with them was enhanced by two other Boondockers Welcome guests that we had.

I could write a book on this wonderful couple. They are simply the best, and it is hard to express in words the solid bond of friendship that we have formed with them since hosting them in March of 2018. We have traveled out West together and we have been guests at their place as well. We no longer consider them guests, nor friends, but family. In fact when they arrived it was a family reunion.

Of course we highly recommend them, and I promise you will enjoy meeting them.

Welcome back

Read the Blue Book.🤗🤗🤗🤗

Great fellowship and good times with the Georgia Roadrunners. What a delight it was bumming around the countryside, visiting a sugar cane syrup farm and partaking in some of the local cuisine (bar-b-que). Our wish was for them to stay longer.

They are extremely courteous, thoughtful and very respectful. We hope to see them again soon. In the meantime we will be looking for y'all out there on the highways and byways. They are welcome back here any time, and we highly recommend them.


August 2019


It was fun having the GaRoadrunner come and stay. We enjoyed showing them a little piece of our Kentucky home. They arrived as strangers and left as friends.

Lovely couple

Even though it was a short overnight stay I so enjoyed talking to them.
Took them on a walk about to see all my butterfly host plants and caterpillars.
Hope they stop by on their travels back home.
Very pleasant,clean and quite guest you'd hardly know they are camped outside. I'd be honored to have them back anytime.
Thanks for the sweet treats.

Nice Couple

Had a really nice visit with GaRoadrunner. They are excellent guests! They are welcome to stop by again. Sorry for the late reference I was busy after their stay and then haven't had a reason to get on the site since.

Very Nice Folks

I was sorry to see them leave.
They were a very interesting couple , we shared some RV ideas.

They were volunteering their time and skills to the local Habitat for Humanity.
As a result of our interactions,, I have now signed up to do work for Habitat myself.
Hope to see them again.

Great people

It is so good to have wonderful people like you take such careful care of my property while you enjoyed the wonderful scenic, historical area around Wheatland


August 2018

Wonderful guests!

We hosted Tad and Glenda for two nights, and we would gladly have them return anytime!

We enjoyed chatting with them in the evening about traveling and life adventures. They were everything you would want in a Boondocker guest.


August 2018

Pitches Right In

Great to see the men working together helping out another boondocker. That's what life is about, paying it forward as we go. And this couple exemplifies that type. We wish them pleasant projects on their journey.


August 2018

Nice folks I'd recommend to anyone

Keeping with my record I've never had a bad boondocker. This couple is nice, pleasant and entertaining to talk to. Forgive my inadequacies in my references as I never know what to say. But I wouldn't hesitate to let them stay with you.


July 2018

Hate to see them leave.

GaRoadrunner, quiet couple ready to check out the sites and enjoy a traveling lifestyle, No review can summarize the level of appreciation and gratitude we have for GaRoadrunner, their conversations and the wonderful history they share is outstanding, their humbleness is to be admired, they are welcome back anytime they want.


July 2018

Great couple

Both very nice people. I was doing a project at my cabin and he jumped right in and lent a hand.


July 2018

Enjoyable guests

We had lots in common with these folks, and thoroughly enjoyed chatting with them.. Hoping they will return so we can get to know then even better!

Great Boondocker Guests

The GaRoadrunners were great guests and we would gladly host them again. We enjoyed some time sharing our travel and life experiences. As they mentioned in their review, we share the desire to help others through the freedom we have to travel. So I will put in a plug here encouraging the boondocker community to take some time each year to help others by volunteering through your church, Samaritas Purse, Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity, etc. We work mainly in disaster relief and rebuilding, but there are so many other areas one can help in.


May 2018

Perfect guests!

I really enjoyed meeting and talking with GaRoadrunner! Learned a few tips from their experiences and sent them down the road to see our famous fruitcake factory! I'm sure we will cross paths again in a campground or passing each other on the road.

Great Couple

We had a lot in common. We enjoyed their visit and hope to see them again in the future.

Corvette Summer

GaRoadrunner were the best. What a delight to meet them. They were on their way home after being on the road for five weeks. I fully expect that our paths will cross again on the great highways and byways of North America. GaRoadrunner were very respectful guests, and they are welcome here any time. Our only complaint: Stay more than one day next time. ;-)

First Timer

Tad and Glenda were first timers but it won't stay that way....they are friendly, fun and down to earth.
They have blended in with us, our country side and way of life. Other boondocker host will be fortunate to have them as a guest. ( it wasn't easy to say "good by" )


March 2018

Fun loving couple

It was my pleasure to host this gracious and fun loving couple. They are welcome to return
and spend time here in the future. You will find them excellent guests if you are lucky enough to be their host.


February 2018

Great guests

We are happy to have hosted the GAroadrunners at our place. Friendly, courteous, and a pleasure to interact with. Tad even pitched in and helped me (really, he did all the work) with a repair on my wife’s car.

We hope they will stay with us again as they continue to travel!

A golden Boondockers experience!

We had the most wonderful time with GaRoadrunners. They live in a beautiful, peaceful location in the Georgian hills close to the town of Dahlonega and Helen! They went above and beyond to meet our needs and made us feel part of their family! We kept on extending our stay, not because of the Coronovirus but because we didn’t want to leave!

Thank you to you and your family for opening up your home to us, educating us about Dahlonega’s gold history and allowing us to share on your southern country life! Such rich memories that we will cherish forever! We will miss you!

Five Star rating!!!!

What an incredible Boondockers Welcome place tucked away in the secluded hollows outside of Dahlonega. From here you are close to numerous wineries, the charming town of Dahlonega, places to go and pan for gold, and numerous other attractions. Or, you can bask in the quietness of the forest around your camper. This place is enchanting.

Georgia Roadrunners were a BW guest at our place a couple of years ago. We have become fast friends since that visit, and we have had the opportunity to travel together in Florida and out west. You could not meet anyone finer than these folks. You will delighted in getting a chance to know them.

It was fun being here and being their first official BW guest since they have opened a host site. Of course we highly recommend you stop over if you are passing through this area.
