Do you know or have you hosted this user?

My wife Connie, our teenage son and I travel a few times a year with our 26' travel trailer. Primarily round the southwest (we live in New Mexico) but sometimes we get lucky and travel further afield. We're a couple of real estate professionals that also own a computer repair business. Self employment is better than working for someone else, but the hours are longer and days off are fewer!

Skills & Expertise to Share

Computer repair, technology expert, buy/sell a home (in New Mexico)

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Just venturing from the concept of KOA living to Boondocking - so we really don't know anything yet!

Father n son trip

Matthew and his son just stayed one night on their way to a family reunion. We were able to visit a bit and talk about the modifications they had made on their trailer. They were polite, quiet guests and are welcome back anytime!
