My wife and I are travelling around US for our 4th and last six month road trip round your wonderful country. We are lucky to be able to spend summer here then summer back in Australia. We have now been lucky enough to visit all the lower 48 States. We really appreciate and enjoy the chance to stay with you and share some of our stories and experiences.

Love them

Oh my gosh, these people are amazing. They love to cook so we ate a few meals with them. They talk as much as I do lol. They will always be family in our house. Love you both so much.

Splendid Adventurers!

It was a treat to host Phil and Jo again. They are a very interesting couple and we loved hearing about their adventures. They are welcome back on their next tour!

short stay, nice couple

We were pleased to be able to host philnjo on the last leg of their journey. If they are ever back in the area, they are welcome to stay again.

Friends from the opposite side of the world!

It will sound as if I am paraphrasing the Boy Scout Laws when I review these guests. They are friendly, courteous, kind, cheerful, intelligent, generous, thoughtful, talented, and entertaining. We first met them in New Boston, TX, while being the guests of consummate BW hosts at the Candy Cane Corral. When we heard Phil and Jo would be traveling through our area in a few weeks, we insisted that they stay with us. There were so many stories we wanted to hear and questions we wanted to ask and there just wasn’t time during our overnight stay in Texas. They requested a two-night stay and we insisted they stretch it to a week! Phil and I haven’t yet expended our supplies of military, mechanical, and aviation stories. It’s possible this will be their last year touring in the U.S. and we’re saddened to hear that. We hope to see them again. We are grateful, through Boondockers, to have becomes friends with marvelous people from the opposite side of the planet and hope we can be together again someday. Jo, you are a sweetheart and Phil is a very luck man. In closing, just to satisfy Phil, I will admit to three things: 1) that Australian Football is considerably more action-filled than the NFL, 2) that glider pilots are real pilots, too, and 3) that in spite of being a Limey transplanted to Australia, he’s a pretty good pistolero! Godspeed Phil and Jo.

Hard To Say Good-by When Family Goes Home!

We thoroughly enjoyed the return visit with these wonderful Boondockers Welcome Guests from Australia. We met them last year and so looked forward to their visit again this year. We felt like we were waving good-by to family as they departed this morning. We had to check to make sure our new little puppy, Taffy, was not in Phil's or Jo's pockets as he also fell in love with them. They are truly fantastic guests and will always have a place in our hearts and home. We'll never forget them and will definitely keep in touch. May God go with you and keep you safe as you complete your last journey in our great USA (at least until next time!). Perry, Ginny & Georgia

Most Amazing Couple!

philnjo are the most amazing people. We sat and talked as if we had been friends forever. They requested one night stay but ended up staying two nights. We sure hated to let them leave and continue their journey-we so hope our paths cross again because this amazing couple has touched our hearts.Boondockers that follow will have a high bar to reach lol!


July 2019

Great company from 'Down Under'

It was a wonderful experience to once again host a warm and delightful couple that hail from the great country down under, Australia. 

We spent the evening chatting at length about our shared interest in traveling. They are welcome back here anytime. Hopefully we will see each other again. Who knows, maybe we will be knocking on their door one day in Australia.

Wait, you have to leave?

We wished we lived closer to this awesome ripper couple, conversations, trips and so much more we hate to see them leave, they would be welcome back RV or not, and we will be planning a Aussie trip soon. To other hosts, let them stay, you'll never forget them. Cobbers for life!


September 2018


Great fun with this couple from Australia. In fact, we had them twice -- the original stay was to wait to meet up with friends locally, then we invited them back on their way out of town. Lots of fun, great conversation about Australia and RV traveling.

Gday mate

One of the great perks to hosting boondockers is meeting folks from every where. It was a pleasure to host Phil and Jo, originally from England but long time Australians. We had wonderful visits, enjoyed Phill's Wrapped Chicken dinner, went to the Meat Lockers for a barbecue, took a tour over the hill, and shared knitting. Phil loved fixing things for me and I loved the needed help. I hope we meet again.


July 2018

Great guests

We had the pleasure of hosting Philnjo recently. They are friendly and have many interesting stories to tell. We learned about Aussie football and the grandkids learned to fly a drone. They are welcome back anytime.


June 2018

Great visit!

This is a couple you will be lucky to have visit. Talk about interesting! World travelers with interesting experiences and a pure joy to visit with. Doubt you visit many places twice given your adventures but if you do you will always be welcome!

All Around the USA and Australia In Three Days - What A Fantastic Trip!

We had such a great time with these wonderful Boondockers Welcome guests! We were sorry to see them leave today but we know others need the blessing of them also. We shared pictures, experiences and lots of loving laughter with these two. We felt like we had known them for a long time. We wish them Godspeed and safe travels as they continue the adventures they began when coming to explore our wonderful USA! We look forward with anticipation to the next visit with them.

Wonderful Folks

We were so pleased to have Phil and Jo stay with us for a few days and certainly do hope they will visit again when passing through or perhaps meet up with them again on the road somewhere. If you ever have the opportunity to meet up with them I would certainly say you will have a wonderful time as we did with Jo and travels!


May 2018


Glad to have you stay and enjoy a nights rest, your welcome back when traveling through the area.

Freindly, quiet couple touring the US.

We hosted Phil and Jo for one evening. We invited them to have dinner and they accepted.
We had a great time comparing our past experiences and hobbies over dinner and drinks.
Phil gifted us with some aerial photos of our home he took with his quad copter.
I wish they could have stayed another day or so as they are likable....
Mary Ann and I wish you safe travels this summer, and a safe return home!
If ever you pass this way again, know you have a place to stay!!

Inspiring couple

We had a really memorable visit hosting Phil and Jo. They are a truly fascinating couple! They encouraged us to one day take on an adventure like they are doing. Very kind and gentle souls, wish they were neighbors that could stay. We pray continuous safe travels as they enjoy our country and hope to someday meet them again in their next Reunion Tour!
