Instant Friends

This was our first experience with BoonDockers Welcome. I actually set up my profile and within a day had our first request. I was so excited. I communicated with her via Boondockers messaging and before she arrived we knew we already had lots in common. She kept me informed of her schedule and arrived right on time. She has a wonderful Shitzu and so do we so they hit it off immediately. The only negative was she had to leave too soon. It was so fun showing her around our "neighborhood" and we've already made plans to cross paths again when we are on our next adventure. Wonderful guest, very quiet and respectful and so appreciative of our hospitality. I would recommend her as a guest to anyone.

JTowers reference

JTowers stayed with us two nights and three days and was our first hosting experience. This was like welcoming an old friend I had known all my life. You will not find a better guest! We learned from her as she shared her experiences on the road and found that there were many things we had not considered. It was simply the best visit and her pal Scout was a delight to have visiting our furry crew!

Nancy and I enjoyed meetng you and Scout. Have fun in your travels. Your always welcome at our house. Thanks for stopping by.

An easy guest

Joan was delight to host, and was no problem in any way at all. Her little dog Scout was so well behaved that it was hardly even noticeable that she was there. I would recommend her for any other Boondocker Welcome hosts

Wonderful lady

JTowers and her four leg companion were a pleasure to host. She has logged a lot of mile in a short amount of time and really seems to be embracing the full time lifestyle. I hope she'll make it back for a few more days on her next go around.
