Do you know or have you hosted this user?

My wife and I have a quiet location in an unincorporated town with about 16 inhabitants, 32 miles from the Okoboji Great Lakes region of northwest Iowa. Spencer, IA is a quick 14 miles east on a nice blacktop. The home is about 100 ft from the blacktop on gravel.

We love the outdoors, boon-docking, and boating. We are also just as happy sitting by a fire listening to the wildlife. Deer, raccoons, and an occasional fox are often seen in our yard.

We thoroughly enjoy meeting new people and hearing of their travels. So, your presence is our reward, and no gift is needed. Besides, we are purging so we can hit the road in a few years!

Skills & Expertise to Share

I am a fabricator and very mechanically inclined with a multitude of tools including air driven, a welder, and hardware on hand. My wife says I am a John of all trades. We have gutted and remdelled our home, and I cannot resist taking anything apart and making it function better.

Cdmjfm07's Pets

Outside cats.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Beach camping in Texas. Padre Island, Magnolia Beach, Brazosport. Besides the amazing view and sounds, it’s free!!

Casinos are also wonderful because of the 24 hour security.

Exceptional colleagues and friends

J... and C... are incredibly generous and helpful folks. We enjoyed a very fruitful stay with them, learned a lot more about their plans for the future. Two authenticate folks who represent the Heartland of the USA. Although their location is out of the way in rural Iowa, you will find their stories insightful and funny, and their interest in RVing second to none. This is our third trip and we try to return each year when we can go through the Heartland.

So glad it worked out!

My first request did not seem to go through and so I canceled it. I then heard from Smallville quietude and we were able to work out going. What a wonderful experience! Both of them let us as we came in and we got to spend I'm talking about our share travels and where we are each going next. We both slept so well in the quiet and appreciated the soft water. Cadbury, the cat worked out his relationship with their cats and was eager to go out in the morning and sit in the sun. We hope at some point to be able to come back through and stay longer and visit with these wonderful people! And guys, I hope you enjoy Ashfall Fossil Park.

Two Incredibe Freinds

We previously stayed with John and Cheryl earlier in the year. They really impressed us. We were on our way back south to Texas again and felt the need to catch up with them on their activities. John helped us with a number of maintenance issues with our travel trailer, including identifying a propane gas leak that could have been very dangerous for us. We have learned to call them friends. They are generous folks.

Two exceptionally generous folks!

Cheryl and John are two exceptionally generous folks who are very committed to RVing. They have owned a number of rigs and have spent a great deal of time camping and boondocking on weekends and long holidays. Although they have not yet reached an age they can retire, they look forward to that day coming.

We spent a very enjoyable evening exchanging stories of where we had camped and sites we have seen. John volunteered to add some grease to my sway bar and weight distribution hitch, which were squeaking and squawking.. We were able to talk extensively about inverters and deep cycle batteries.

Terrific couple…we shall come by again later in the year when we come back this way. We highly recommend you meet these two folks.

Follow Up to Above

We got a lovely note from Quiet Farm apologizing because our cancellation was the first notification they received. So, it's tha vagaries of the internet and life and we have an invitation to stay with them which we are thinking we wil take them up on.
