Loving retirement and traveling around this beautiful country of ours

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We’re the McKnights from York PA, mostly retired (except for a few volunteer commitments) and spending half our time on the road. We’ve been camping since 1960’s when we were pup tent purists, scoffing at big rigs wedged in next to our humble abode. Through the years we’ve slept in backpacking tents of various sizes, adding air mattresses at some point, and eventually cots. In 2013 we took a big step up when we graduated to a truck tent for our month-long trip to The Badlands and Beyond.

It was a fabulous trip and our arrangement worked so well that we did another month long trip in 2015, this time following The Great River Road from the headwaters of the Mississippi down to New Orleans. May proved to be quite chilly and damp, and we decided that if we wanted to continue camping, especially in the off season, we needed to upgrade our accommodations a bit. When we discovered Oliver Travel Trailers, it was love at first sight. We usually travel for three months, and go home for three months at a time. Works well for us, at least for now.

Super Guests

We really enjoyed having travelswithollie staying with us for a few nights. Had the chance to share RV travel experiences over a tea around the kitchen table, and these are adventurous active travelers that enjoy their travels and the RV lifestyle. We hope that our paths cross again in the not to distant future and they are always welcome to stay with us at our BDW site.

Understanding guests

Being under the weather, I was not much of a host, but they were very understanding and self sufficient. Hopefully next time we can get to know each other a bit. They are welcome anytime.

Delightful Couple!

We so enjoyed hosting travelswithollie! They are such a fun friendly couple with a wonderful sense of adventure. They are so warm and friendly that we joked that they must have Canadian east coast ancestors...they fit right in here! We truly hope that they travel this way again soon...they are more than welcome to visit any time.
