By the end of an extremely wet camping trip on the West Coast of Vancouver Island, everything was soaked inside and out. Swore we'd never tent again - it was time for something dry with solid walls. Never looked back. We have explored and have traveled through much of Western Canada and the Western States.

Skills & Expertise to Share

We are a family with a computer software programmer, a montessori teacher/outreach volunteer, and a french immersion honors high school student. We love to play sports, games, watch movies and shows like Amazing race and Survivor (from all the countries that produce them). We are huge music fans and our heads are filled with music and trivia. In addition to road travel, we enjoy tropical holidays and cruises and have forced our child to take extended holidays (and miss some school). Miscellaneous things some of us enjoy include technology and computers, animal issues, culture history and other languages, art, yoga, fitness, hiking, spelunking, rocks, minerals, shells and fossils, gardening, harvesting and processing fruit in canning, making jam, dried fruit, and fruit leather. Cooking, baking and especially eating. Reading and relaxing on a beach. We also enjoy spending time with a large extended family for birthdays and holiday gatherings.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Have enjoyed National Parks in Canada and the States spending time in and near the parks.
Exploring Northern California, BC's mountains and valleys, Alberta's wide open spaces, Oregon, Washington and California coasts/beaches and inland. Enjoy being in places with hot springs and lakes. Loved our boondocking/camping experience in Northern New Zealand.

Cities visited include Vancouver BC, Calgary AB, Greater Seattle, Portland and Bend Or areas Redding, Sacramento, and Southern CA,. These places feel like second homes.

Close enough to visit again soon

We didn't get much opportunity to visit with this twosome, but we hope they will have the opportunity to stay with us again. Thanks so much for the compote. Does it come with refills?

Great Family

Wonderful folks, they were respectful, quiet and fun to chat with. The left the area just as they found it and I always love it when people wind up the electrical cord with my bad back that helps me too. Their daughter made the most wonderful hand colored thank you card, my favorite of all time, and I was welcomed on the first day with big smiles and a gorgeous bouquet of flowers. Flowers are always a girl favorite right?! They are welcome anytime.

What a great family!

They stopped for an overnight on their way through. What a joy to have around. We had a campfire and I must tell you, if you want the worlds best roasted marshmallow, look no further! They were so good I even had seconds. I don't normally even like marshmallows, these were INCREDIBLE. Welcome back any time.
