Outdoorsy types on one year whirlwind trip around the country

Expired Guest

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Myself and my fiancee, Rob, are taking a year to explore the county and see what there is to see. His kids are grown and my 14 year job just ended so this is our chance to get out and visit parks as well as far flung family & friends. We have an inflatable kayak and good hiking shoes. Looking for big skies, interesting geology, wooded paths, clear water and good people.

Skills & Expertise to Share

We are new to the Boondocking lifestyle, but if we come across any useful info or skills we will pass them along.

RedwoodMagpie's Pets

Sadly, no. But we love animals.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Lower Salt Creek Shoreline Campground Lakehead, CA. Free in off season (mid September to Mid April). It is basically a dirt parking area for the closed campground. No amenities, but you are right next to the lake and the price is right. No close grocery stores, so come supplied. There is a railroad trestle right overhead and expect 3-5 trains a night so it is not the most restful unless you are one of those people who can sleep through anything. The road to the campground is narrow, but there is parking for bigger rigs if it is not crowded (we didn't have any neighbors the 2 nights we stayed there). Lake Shasta is huge, so if you have a toad or you can drop your trailer and explore a little you will find plenty to do in the area. Best suited for: water sport enthusiasts, budget conscious travelers, and those who can drop their trailer or explore the area with their toad.

RedwoodMagpie's Hometown

Arcata, CA. We are coming from the Redwood Coast of California- giant trees, beautiful rocky coast line, and Bigfoot. Though I cannot confirm that last claim.

Happy to host them

The RedwoodMagpies were perfect guests. We wish we would have been able to spend more time chatting with them and would be happy to host them again.

These guys were great to have around

They showed up in the pouring Kentucky rain, but that didn't stop them from enjoying their stay. The second night the weather cooperated and we had a great time out by the bonfire with our other guest. Our outdoor kitties loved them and wished they had stayed longer. Hopefully we'll see then again soon!

Like long lost friends!

Michelle and Rob are wonderful people and great to talk to. Very down to earth and knowledgeable about a wide variety of subjects. It was a pleasure to meet them! Hope they stop by again and stay longer!
