Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Dan and I are in the next life phase and are anxious to travel and see lots of different parts of the country. We love the idea of staying with other like-minded folks and learning from each other...I guess that comes from all those years of teaching! We are boaters, too, and live 1-2 months per year on our sailboat in warm places. We spend summers in NH and winters in the south. We had a pop up camper in the past and loved it, but are planning some more extensive travel across our country and Canada, too, so have just started out with our new-to-us travel trailer.
Looking forward to meeting you!

Skills & Expertise to Share

We are pretty handy, in general. Dan has done a lot of electrical work in both our house and the boat. On the boat he installed shore power and rewired the DC entirely...and installed an AC/DC fridge which I LOVE. We do most of our maintenance ourselves, whether on the house, boat, or (now) the trailer.

New Englanders at heart!

Interesting, friendly, and just plain fun to be with. No host should hesitate to welcome them. Just two of the folks that make Boondockers work so wonderfully!

Fantastic people!

Fantastic people! Once they arrived, they offered us a drink and we chatted for hours. We felt like we were the guests! Great people, great conversation, good fun. 100% recommend!

I hosted Nwdobbins for one night on their way south. They were super respectful of their host. We did not get time to socialize due to my schedule but the minute or so we did talk they were very thankful of their host. They stated that they would be head north again in the spring. They will be vert welcome to return for the night or for several days on their way north in the spring.

Excellent return guest

We were very pleased to have Dan & Nancy return this year and spend their anniversary at Lake Buffalo. They really know how to kick back and enjoy the simple boondocking life. We wish them safe travels as they set off to explore our great country this year. We look forward to hosting them again.

Outstanding guest

Dan and Nancy were a pleasure to have staying at our Boondocker site. I could tell from the first that they were private people like us so we left them to enjoy themselves. They took day trips and fished and swam in the lake, catching some impressive fish that they promised to forward photos of. I’m glad the weather was ideal for their outing. You would never know that anyone had even been on our property, they left it that clean. We would definitely have them and little Cali as guest anytime.
