Somewhat retired. My store went out of business. Plan to go full time once I get my building leased out so I can have a little bit of money to boondock with.
HVAC technician, Computer guru, electrical skills, tiny bit of woodworking skills. trying to utilize all in building my own 10' teardrop trailer to eventually go full-time.
Check out my youtube channel called "PREJEAN OFF GRID BOONDOCKING" which helps out a lot of preppers and boondockers. I cover RV how-to's, cajun cooking and also document many boondocking sites in the deep south for freecampsites.net
Rutherford Beach just outside of Creole, Louisiana. I reviewed it for freecampsites.net. Great boondocking site to camp on the beach.
10 ft. Home built teardrop trailer
After I arrived, I took Rick’s wise advice and drove my rig directly onto a grassy area on his property which is supported by a thick layer of stones so, despite the tremendous downpour, my rig was on solid ground. I was so happy that I didn’t have to back up my rig--always an unpleasant chore for me.
Rick was an excellent host from whom I learned a great deal about RVing, especially boondocking tips, of which he is quite knowledgeable. I also enjoyed seeing his homemade RV trailer which he built. Before I left, he cooked up some wonderful jambalaya, and kindly gave me a heaping bowl of it.
Rick, thanks so much for your generous hospitality!
Rick was very welcoming and even loaned me a few tools I didn't have on hand when I had a minor mechanical issue. He was happy to receive a reasonable contribution toward electricity but left the amount to us to decide. Would highly recommend staying here.
We arrived during a rain shower. Rick and I had a nice chat about SEC football and other topics. He had a map of the area wit attractions and recommended eating establishments. We tried one, Big Daddy's. The food was great, and reasonably priced.
There was a minor issue with power.
Rick went above and beyond to resolve it and be sure we had comfortable stay.
We stayed at Rick's place for two nights. Rick is a nice host. The location is between Lafayette and New Orlean, 25 miles south of Bâton Rouge. It is ok to stop there for one night on your way to New Orleans. Little bummer is the neighbor working on his mecanic shovel for 10 minutes at 6:30 am. We worked up and left...
Nice flat spot for our 31 ft rv. Rick was very nice and even let us charge our computers on an extension cord. He is building a cool rig. Hope you get out there soon Rick!
Our stay at Ricks place is special. He helps us a lot with booking a swamptrip and showed us the area. He is very kind and we hope that he will enjoy is own trip. Thank you for everything!
Great spot to stay if visiting Plaquemine Locks State Historic Site. Thanks to our host for making our overnight stop easy!
Rick's place was a breeze to access. He made sure that if I needed anything he could hook me up. Quiet at night but right off the main road. Very easy to find and felt safe and secure the night. If I come back again I would like to stay for a bit longer to see the area. Thank you.
