Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I am a semi retired Emergency Room PA that likes to travel with my Casita. Hobbies include ham radio and flying hot air balloons. I do have space available for your RV should you be commuting through the area. It is a very nice area and convenient to the Interstate.

Quiet, peaceful spot.

Dustin’s home is in a lovely, quiet neighborhood. He couldn’t be home but was very friendly and helpful via text. I would be happy to stay here again.

A great place to stay!

Howelldw was a terrific host. We don't know how there's enough hours in the day for him do do all he does.
We had a great time talking about his "balloning" travels, camping, flying, and everything else.
It's a very interesting area, with the Germantown Colony Museum, a great lake to hike and swim at nearby, plus another museum and eateries in town proper.
A big thanks for a couple of nice nights, we'll hopefully see howelldw again!

Hospitable host

Had great chat about site and camping as we continue north. Hot Springs sounds great. Interesting hobby, hot air ballooning. Thanks for the use of your bathroom and carport as we only have a microliters teardrop.

A gracious host!

We requested to stay at Germantown colony for one night as we were passing through the area. Although our host was not going to be home, he still answered and said it was fine to stay.

We found the property easily and backed into then spacious driveway with no problem at all.

Our host was also kind enough to offer electric and water if needed.
We went for dinner in town and met some very friendly locals in their 'Cheers' bar (El Jimador-Mexican restaurant)
The location is a safe, quiet neighborhood.

Thanks again for your generosity!

Nice neighborhood.

We had a great stay at this Boondocker site. Even though he was at work a lot of the time we stayed, Dustin was in constant communication with us and offered anything and everything we needed to have a great stay. It was a lovely community that we enjoyed walking around between raindrops. We also met Dustin’s mother, a lovely lady who stopped several times and even brought us farm fresh eggs.

Don't miss stopping by and meeting Dustin.

Where do we even start? Dustin is the cream of the crop. You couldn't ask for a better stay, than what we got in Minden. Dustin replied almost instantly to our inquiry about staying with him. He waited for us to show up, even though we showed up later than planned. He accommodated every want and need we could think of. He gave us the guided tour of Minden. He told us all the best spots to check out, and eat. He invited us in for dinner, and showed us what he's all about. We felt like we were treated like family. We showed up as strangers and left as friends. We will definitely stop by again. They don't make them any better than this.
