My name is Jesse, my kids are 14, 8 and 4 yrs old, my wife's name is Merrriam.
We are the Five Pilgrims traveling the narrow road and we get tired sometimes (always) and need to rest, and that's the reason we may take advantage of this amazing service and great heart from You.
I'm an AT&T technician who works hard and once in a while I go out RV'ing with family just to get away from home, not a lot of time really, as we also stay busy at our local church serving the community. If you open your place for us, we will respect your privacy and rules.
We do not drink alcohol, we do not smoke. We solve our personal problems at our home or at our church with God.
God Bless You and Thank You for your kindness.
Love music, know basic electric bass, basic keyboard, wife plays guitar.
I install at&t internet and Directv. Had helped lots of RVer's with their Directv satellite problems.
Yes it's a 7 pound ,5 year old Yorkie named BOO. 1 dog only.
Boo is not always traveling with us.
Along the Oregon coast highway on a vista point with ocean view and the moon shining on the ocean (night stay), I can't forget that night. An OREGON state trooper sent us there.
1998 Tiffin Allegro Bus, (diesel pusher) 36 ft long bumper to mirrors,( 1) 10ft by 3ft slide. Self contained, no oil leaks.
Very nice family they were very quite and the kids well mannered. I would host them again anytime
We had a wonderful stay! The road in had some potholes, but they were easy to avoid and it was easy to pull through the driveway and park. There are a lot of animals around, and a rare train - but other than that, it was very quiet.
Our kids loved playing with the host's kids, and we loved meeting our hosts.
We appreciated use of utilities and an outdoor shower.
Would love to visit again sometime! :)
The 5 Pilgrims were very accommodating, friendly, flexible and made my stay very easy. Smiles from all and a big thanks back to you!
Clear directions to location provided by host. Nice parking spot on level gravel drive. There seems to be a dog at every house on the street and barking continued until dark. We slept well though. Nice couple who greeted us then let us set up and even offered 15 amp power cord for light.
Our hosts happily welcomed us to their property outside Bakersfield. Very nice couple! They helped us get set up and provided a 15 amp electrical line. A nice surprise.
We were heading out of California on our way to Florida, and this was an easy stop off of I-5. The hosts gave us very specific directions on which streets to take, and even sent us a video on exactly the route to take and where to park at their place.
The 5 Pilgrims are a sweet couple. They weren't home when we arrived, but came to say hello and even gave us a sweet treat that they had bought just for us. It was the perfect snack after a long day of driving!
The neighborhood dogs bark a lot. They quieted down at night, so sleeping was very peaceful and quiet. We have three dogs of our own, so barking doesn't bother us. But for those who may not be used to dogs, just be aware of that.
Very easy stay and super sweet couple. I would recommend this place to anyone needing to pass through the area. We would definitely stay again. Thank you so much for your hospitality!
Spent two quiet nights next to the families classic mid nineties Alegro class A motorhome. Full water and 15amp electric close by made it a very easy and enjoyable stay. After arrival, I was immediately welcomed by the "lady of the house" where she showed me where to park telling me that if I needed anything, just let her know. Very down to earth people with some great children.
I would recommend staying here, and it is close to California Interstate 5.
thanks for the warm greeting after such a long day of driving, you were a blessing that greeted us. And thankyou for the evening chat and sharing. Thanks for your kindness, hospitality and being part of our BoondockersWelcome family. PS. Didn't hear any roosters this morning so we slept in!
Nice to be off the road and in the orchard groves of Bakersfield valley. Very happy couple, and fun to talk about the re-build of the Ford 8N. Quiet night and level spot with power too. Hope to swing by again. Thank You both and the family too.
Very convenient location and easy to find (thank you for great directions).
The host and his family are very welcoming, and their little Yorkie is adorable :)
Lots of space for my RV, they even offered me to use bathroom / shower in the building behind their house. Hooked me up to electricity - thank you !
Was very quiet during the night. And in the morning I heard several roosters in neighboring properties welcoming the day - love that sound !
Thank you and your family for having me !
This was my first boondockers welcome experience and a very pleasant one too. Thanks for making me feel at home.
The 5 Pilgrims were very friendly hosts...... nice spot to get off the I-5 and get some rest. Thanks for being part of the Boondocking family.
This was a great stay. The host was very accommodating. Their communications and directions were very quick and helpful. The property is great. Super easy in and out. Level. And we were met upon arrival and they ensured we had everything we needed.
We visited seqouia forest and los angeles from their spot. So being right in the middle of the two worked out great! If we are ever in southern cali again we will definitely request their place again.
This is on the outskirts of Bakersfield. The host was very friendly and provided electric, water, and even a shower and toilet shed that he made for guests that is accessible at the back of the house. It looked amazing! Thank you for letting us stay 😊!
We had a wonderful visit with the host and his family. They made us feel very welcomed from the moment we arrived. We only wish we had time to visit with them more. The directions they provided are super important to follow. We arrived after dark, so it posed some issues trying to find roads....but you should be fine if you plan appropriately. Host offered water and let us use their 120v power. It was quiet and felt safe. Would highly recommend to other boondockers!
Very nice people. Offered use of shower toilet.
Bit muddy after big rains.
Not good for dogs as burrs everywhere. an
The Host and his family are so wonderful! This was our first stay using Boondockers. We stopped over to stay halfway between the coast and our destination. He was very responsive to texts on the day of stay. His wife greeted us and showed us around the property. He has even installed an outdoor restroom and shower for his guests! We visited for a short time when he arrived home from work, he has such a giving spirit and heart. Thank you so much for an amazing place to spend the night. We would love to come here again someday.
We loved our stay at Airfiberoptics. This was only our second time using Boondockers Welcome and the hosts have all been absolutely wonderful - especially Airfiberoptics. We used the helpful directions to access the site - the city road is quite dilapidated and in need of repair but the host provided a useful YouTube video and instructions on how to access the driveway entrance as well as overnight parking space. Lots of room for large rigs. We enjoyed listening to the roosters at sunrise and would love to stay here again.
This spot was a great resting spot in the middle of a sea of almond orchards. A quiet semi-rural area away from the highway. Our hosts were very warm, friendly and helpful. We enjoyed spending time with the whole family.
As I travel, I am meet a lot of people. I was fortunate to have met this one special family. They have an open heart. I'm inspired and leave with hope to find more like them. I really didn't want to leave!
The roads are torn up, take it slow, shopping is close and so are all the fruit and nut trees! Thank you for bringing me a cup of coffee this morning!
