Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We're a friendly, respectful, animal-loving family of 4 looking to explore the USA and meet new people! We have a nice little slice of heaven on the Bras D'or Lakes in Canada and plan on hosting some Boondockers in the summer of 2019. For now, we plan on our own USA Boondocking adventure- maybe we will meet!

Skills & Expertise to Share

Retired mechanic so pretty handy around most vehicles (especially 1996 and newer). Specializing in wiring and fuel injection and computerized engine controls. Have some web development and hobby electronics (raspberry pie, arduino, etc) experience along with general handyman skills (plumbing, electrical, woodworking, HVAC, etc).

We have some basic farm skills too (kids especially love to help out with animals). Love to tinker, learn and figure out problems and always willing to help a fellow Boondocker or host!

Welcome any time!

Summerbounder returned for a 2nd stay. We were delighted they did. Darling children. They helped me completely change out the brakes on our 5th wheel and got them working. Saved us at least 3 weeks in time. We are extremely grateful for you taking the lead on this!

Thank you for visiting!

Delightful couple with two, well behaved/mannered children. Stimulating conversation. Now we have two families to Boondock with in Nova Scotia. Come back anytime you are in the neighborhood.
