Skills & Expertise to Share

my wife and I are very passionate photographers.. I was one for the Navy in the early 70's and have ever since.. we do a lot of portraits, wildlife, landscapes, and a lot of horses! I have also been a jock my whole life and a bodybuilder in my 30's so my skill is I can lift heavy stuff ( still ) and my wifes skill besides looking amazing is she can eat anything and stay slender.. dont u just hate her!

Fun evening

Enjoyed my one night. Went to dinner with hosts, their friends, and another boondocker. Very friendly. Good spot put away from everything.

Nice quiet resting place

Pascal and Debbie were wonderful & friendly hosts.
They invited us out to the back deck for some conversation and we had a great time looking at their photography of horses and stuff, they are very good photographers and loved looking at their portfolios. Thank you for everything

Such a hospitable host.

Love ❤️ these hosts. Deb even invited me to join her horselady’s night out on the town.
I spent a lot of time looking through their gorgeous photography.
Thanks Deb and Pascal.

Wonderful friendly hosts!

We very much enjoyed our stay here! We ended up arriving on Thanksgiving and our hosts graciously invited us to dinner with thier friends :) We had a nice evening along with some other boondockers who'd arrived as well. The location was very quiet and peaceful. We appreciated the good balance between conversations with our hosts, and plenty of privacy to ourselves. We are glad to have found this spot!

Definitely a travelers rest

We spent one night in this quiet and peaceful horse farm area of rural Florida. The hosts have two beautiful horses and their home is off any main road, so really great for stargazing. We slept well and travelled on the next day although we were invited for Thanksgiving dinner! The hosts are friendly and interesting people...just wish we had stayed a little longer. You can definitely take day trips to springs and Cedar Key. That’s worth a trip. Hope to be back soon...maybe on our way back north. Many thanks 😀😀

Better than perfect!

This was our first time as BoondockersWelcome guests, and these hosts far exceeded our expectations!

We were welcomed warmly, and given a nice, partially shaded spot with an electrical hookup. Our hosts were even kind enough to invite us in for Thanksgiving dinner!

We would highly recommend these hosts, and would stay again in a heartbeat!

Thanks, sodakryder! :-)
