Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are a very active couple. We walk a lot to keep fit. While traveling we try to stay busy doing fun things in the different areas we visit. We visit National Parks whenever we are in their area, hike, zip-line, ATV tours, and lots of other things. We also tour just about anything military as my husband is a retired Navy submariner. This year we will attend two submarine reunions and tour several military veteran memorials. We travel with our 2 dogs (one is age 14 and the other is 13 and blind); they are our fur babies. There is always something to do while traveling - no matter where we go..

RV_gypsy's Pets

We have 2 small dogs - nicknamed "Guppies". They travel with us everywhere we go.
They are currently 14 and 13 years of age. The youngest is a miniature Schnauzer (he has no eyes so he is blind) and the oldest one is half miniature Poodle and half Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier (a Whoodle).
Totally awesome little critters who love to play ball and the oldest does lots of tricks. They keep us entertained!

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Just started boondocking on a regular basis this year - so we'll be looking for those perfect places.

RV_gypsy's Hometown

We currently reside in Custer, SD. We love this area and live 35 minutes from Mt.Rushmore and about 5 miles from Custer State Park. There is so much to do around this area and we're so glad we found it. We lived in our RV for 7 years while we looked for the perfect place.

We can't say enough good about RV_gypsy. They left us the most beautiful card I have ever seen. Such artistic talent has been given to this couple. We have added 2 more to our extended family and look forward to having them visit us again very soon we hope. Safe travels and God Bless you both. Come see us again soon.

Amazing Couple and their Guppies

We highly recommend these this wonderful couple! We enjoyed every moment with them, our conversations never stopped, and we didn’t want them to leave! They had requested 3 nights and we got them to stay 4. They both are so talented and have so much knowledge to share! You can ask anything and they have the answers, or life experiences to share, they are so unbelievably helpful! They are very respectful of your property and you can’t believe how smart, well trained and well behaved their dogs are! We are so grateful they came to visit, we will stay in touch and hopefully they will come back soon or we rendezvous! Till then we wish them good health, memorable adventures and many more Boondockers Welcome experiences!!
