Adventurous & friendly married couple, full-time RVers, experienced boondockers

Expired Guest

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We lived full-time in our RV in Colorado for the summers of 2017 & 2018. During the winters of 2016/2017 & 2017/2018, we lived in temporary housing while working as massage therapists in Breckenridge, Colorado. In October 2018, we became full-time RVers year-round!

We write and illustrate books and journals (which we sell on Amazon and in our Etsy shop). Joyce does some self-care/stress management coaching and Luke works as a seasonal massage therapist.

As experienced boondockers, we spend most of our time on public lands. We also appreciate the friends who have land and let us moochdock! Because of this, we are very clean, quiet, courteous, and completely self-contained. We have a solar set-up and will soon be adding a composting toilet!

We are friendly but like our alone time. We love nature and animals. We also love being outdoors (hiking and climbing are our favorites) and exploring new areas. And we enjoy meeting others who participate in the RV lifestyle!

Skills & Expertise to Share

Joyce is a writer, digital artist, and self-care/stress management coach. Luke is an illustrator, digital artist, and massage/pain management therapist.

The_Cains's Pets

We have one kitty, Snow the Mustache Cat, who is always with us. He is indoors only (unless we have him on his leash to enjoy some outdoor time).

Favorite Boondocking Locations

We have a special place in our hearts for the Rocky Mountains and Front Range of Colorado and the Oregon coast.

The_Cains's Hometown

We have spent the past three-ish years in Breckenridge and Buena Vista, Colorado or traveling the west coast (mostly northern California and Oregon). Prior to that we were in Fort Collins, Colorado, for about 10 years. Before that, Luke lived in Colorado and Nebraska and Joyce lived in Arizona, Wyoming, California, Alaska, and Nebraska.

These guys were too kind.

OK, so the biggest problem with these guys, was their kindness and generosity. [I mean, which part of ‘Free Boondocking’ do they not understand?! ;-) ] They were excellent guests and we were flattered and happy they stayed longer to get their ‘money’s-worth’ out of our area. Excellent communication, quiet with minimal requirements. Welcome anytime!

Nice Couple

Very nice and friendly couple would recommend them to any boondocking host


October 2018

Very personable and outgoing couple

We were fortunate to be able to provide a place for the Cains to stay. We enjoyed getting acquainted, and would have liked to get to know them better - but our schedules did not match very well.
Would definitely look forward to having them visit again.
