Connecticut family that loves a good road trip

Expired Guest

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are a family of five that love to travel to our national forests and parks. My wife and I have been camping since we met and tent camped during our honeymoon in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. We continued tent camping each summer with our family as we went from a couple to a family of five. After 15 years in a tent, we graduated to a retro travel trailer in 2017 so we could start going further and camping longer. We love our trailer which my daughter affectionately named "Big Red" and have already had many adventures and look forward to many more.

Skills & Expertise to Share

My wife and I are teachers. I am a high school social studies teacher and football coach. My wife is an elementary teacher and fitness instructor. I am fairly handy and have accomplished many home "fixer upper" type of projects and have built several pieces of furniture from pallet wood and other materials.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

We have via Harvest Hosts at several spots. Our favorite thus far was a boondocking stay at Mt. Washington in New Hampshire. We have also enjoyed stays in Burlington, VT and Upstate New York as a way of linking camping stays.

amassengale's Hometown

We live in beautiful Mystic, CT. We love our town and enjoy all that it has to offer.

Nice Family

Very kind family...they even brought us a bag of plums. We'd be happy to host them again.

Recent stay.

A very nice family. We enjoyed hosting them. Only stayed one night so visit was short. Hope they will be able to stop by again so we can hear of their travel adventures.

Happy to welcome this beautiful couple!

We were pleased to meet these two wonderful people. They were very respect and quiet as mice! It was nice chatting with them and seeing their retro camper! They are welcome back anytime!
