Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We have covered the Eastern US in our Bus Conversion(PD4104-4541). Our kids live in Central Florida, where we spend the winter. We have friends and family in Michigan and we try to spend most of the summer in Northern Michigan. Recently acquired a Roadtrek Class B. Took a trip to the Grand Canyon last summer in the Roadtrek. We have hosted many bus conversion rallies, mainly in Florida where we belonged to 2 different FMCA sanctioned clubs. Upon retirement we relocated to Georgia and many of our friends from the clubs come to stay with us, some for a few days, others for a month or two. We love to see fellow RV'ers pull in the drive, which we especially had redone when we moved here to accommodate large rigs. We stay very busy so may not have time to be a tour guide. We kayak when we get a chance, but most of our time at home is spent working on vehicles and taking care of things that have to be done on the property. Getting ready for the next road trip. We live a simple life, we are not into formal dining or clubbing. You can find our profile on

We travel with 2 dogs. 70 lbs and 50 lbs. When we are home the dogs have a large pen so they can spend some time outdoors. The pen also keeps them separated from the cats on the property.

Down home good ol' couple

They folks have been RVing for years and they're fun to talk to and be around. I can understand why they're also boondockers welcome Ultra hosts. We've had them here before and I look forward to every visit. If you get a chance to host these folks, then take it because you'll enjoy every minute of their company.


September 2019

Quick stop

Very nice folks making a quick stop. I enjoyed talking with them for a while. Good people.


September 2019

Great Guests!

They arrived mid-afternoon, after touring one of our winding, scenic river canyons. Our extreme summer temperatures relented and we were able to enjoy our first outdoor evening in many months. Just chatting and telling stories of places they and we have lived and/or visited. They have many more miles planned for this trip, so departed early. We wish them well and hope we meet again.

Little Piece of Haven

‘Jvickrey’ are wonderful hosts. We got such a warm greeting upon our arrival. We enjoyed great conversation on their outdoor porch. The neighborhood is nature full. We were surrounded by trees and tweeting birds. It was a quick overnight stay for us but it couldn’t have been more pleasant. Thanks J & L ;-)


August 2020

A wonderful stop

Jvickrey hosted us last night even though they were out of town. How awesome is that?! What a sweet little spot we had, including water and electric. Woodsy and charming, even though we just crashed, we enjoyed the trees and the little welcome sign. I'm sorry we didn't get to meet, but hopefully we will pass that way again. They made us feel very welcome and comfortable. We would highly recommend a visit to Hill Haven!

Nicest couple in the world

Nicest couple in the world they invited me to great conversation on the porch at nights, aired up the tires on my RV, invited me to do my laundry in their home. Very peaceful atmosphere. Cat lover like me. I would recommend a stay there to everyone. Makes you feel very welcome. I am so grateful for their hospitality.

jvickrey's place is just awesome, no other way to put it. large drive which was easy to enter, 30 amp and water, shade, beautiful surroundings.....just great! Room to walk the dog enough to tire her out and me and lovely area. the host is exceptionally kind and friendly and we have enjoyed talking about everything. We are here in late July and it is Georgia so it is hot! but we're from south alabama so not any different just be ready. So grateful for such a nice spot to spend the night while on our way north, thanks.

Ultra friendly fellow boondockers---

We completely enjoyed our time here. The conversation referred to as "social porch time" was an ultimate do not miss every evening event. They are a good source of information for those traveling in a bus. We came away from their place with many good points to apply toward our RV life. Wanted to give them a hug as we left but that stinkin covid19 kept us at arms length.


June 2020

Great people, easy parking

We would definitely stay there again! Very easy in and out for our rig. Very helpful folks.


June 2020

Gracious hosts

We appreciated their willingness to host us on short notice. We enjoyed talking with fellow animal lovers about our pets.
We hope to see y’all again when we’re passing through the area.


June 2020

Very welcoming host

Very welcoming host. Invited to visit on their front porch we really enjoyed our conversation about our travels. This was our first Boondockers stay, we really enjoyed it and look forward to many more. Great experience.


March 2020

Great place!!!

We truly enjoyed our stay! Great location and easy to get to...hope to return!!!


March 2020

Nice quiet place

We stayed for three days off to the side on the drive facing a wooded area. It was easy to get there and within about five miles to stores and.restauramts. We appreciate the hospitality, especially during this time of campground closings.


March 2020

Generous host

Our host was unable to be home due to an unavoidable issue, but allowed us to stay anyway. Directions were spot on and the hookups were easy to find. Because of their generosity we were able to enjoy a couple of nearby sites we were looking forward to visiting.


March 2020


Even though the guess we're not at home they gave me excellent directions on how to get to that lovely shaded well service area


November 2019

Peaceful Night

This is my 2nd time staying at Hill Haven.
It was a peaceful restful night.
Thanks for the hospitality again!!


October 2019

Peacefull site

We stay for just one night. The hosts were absents but we met them in our last trip. Perfect place to enjoy the nature.

Thank you for your hospitality.

Hope they'll be home in a next trip to have the chance to discuss with them.

Kindest Hosts

I actually came a day late because of a family emergency. That was no problem at all. They said just come.

They are the sweetest, kindest couple. Was told to make myself at home. Enjoy their wonderful well water and electric.

Had a very quiet, peaceful night.

We discussed all things Florida and I learned so much from their many years of experience.



October 2019

Lovely Place

My second stay here. Super nice hosts, easy parking. Thanks so much!


October 2019

Cool hill stop

Hosts where very fun to hang out with on their porch. If you are lucky you will get a bus tour like I did. They even made me a breakfast sandwich and hashbrowns and I joined them for breakfast on their porch! Fun to hear their stories, and they were most helpful giving me info of cool places to boondock in Florida.

Easy access, level spots, Electric available.
I had 2 bars of Verizon LTE.
Oh, and I filled 4 gallon jugs with their good tasting well water before I left.

I would definitely stay here again if I have the opportunity.


July 2019

Extremely friendly

Wonderful host! Even made us cookies!!! We had to leave when we got a call and didn’t get to say goodbye in person! But they were fabulous. Very comfortable and quiet!


July 2019

Great First Boondockers Welcome Experience

We had a very peaceful overnight stay in a beautiful rural setting. Our hosts were very welcoming and we especially enjoyed the friendly conversation. We recommend this location to anyone lucky enough to stay there.


June 2019


A great place to stay, thanks for letting us look through you RV as we found it interesting as we have also converted buses into RV's


June 2019

Sorry we missed you!

Our hosts went from Georgia to Florida, we went from Florida to Georgia. Thank you for opening your home even though you were traveling. Your grandson Chandler was a great host. Your site was excellent. You have obviously invested some time and money to make you guests welcome and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting your other guests from New Zealand. This was our first night camping in 13 years and as a Boondockers Welcome guest. We could not have been more fortunate than to have chosen you. Thanks again.


May 2019

Good folks.

They exemplify what it's all about.

Beautiful place. Thanks so much!

Welcoming and Quiet

Very nice quiet location with great directions! Plus, we enjoyed hangin’ with our hosts and we love cats!


May 2019

Wonderful stay in Georgia.

This was our first Boondockers Welcome stay, and it was great! Our host gave detailed directions that were spot on and avoided potential issues with other routes. We arrived later than expected, but that was not a problem. We had no trouble getting our 36' class a & toad parked and hooked up to power/water.
We spent much of the following morning chatting, swapping stories & letting kids play. Our stay was enjoyable & we'd highly recommend Hill Haven.


May 2019

Going Home

Staying with these two is like staying with old friends that you just met. This is our second BW experience and both have been excellent A high standard for future BW stops. We expect John and Lois to stay with us when they visit PA in their Roadtrek this fall. Our ATT hotspot worked fine at this location. Easy access to parking location..


May 2019

So nice and welcoming hosts

What a nice place with those greats hosts.

They were very kind with us and we had a lot of nice conversations. It's like if we knew each other since many years. Real nice persons.

We enjoy our two days staying at this place.

Thanks again for your hospitality.

Wonderful Boondocker Hosts

John and Lois were wonderful hosts, making us feel really at home. We had a great "International night" with a family from Luxembourg. Sharing stories about the love of travel with wonderful hosts is what Boon docking is all about. Hopefully our paths will cross on your journey later this year.


April 2019

Limitless hospitality!

I think our fondest boondocking memory might be staying with these hosts!
We were welcomed here together with other travelers and enjoyed a lovely evening together on arrival.
Our toddler was so excited about all the toys in the yard and our baby got to play with a walker!
The next morning we were welcomed on the porch again for a yummy breakfast and received great tips about the area to spend our day.
When we came back they had set up their own bus for us as a storm was on its way! Luckily the rain only arrived the next day after breakfast (we were spoiled again) and they let us wait until the storm had past in their house. In the meantime they gave us useful advice and contact for the rest of our trip,
We are so grateful for the warm welcome here, lovely place and kindest hosts. Thank you!


April 2019


We are very happy to meet Lois. She is a very nice woman (reminds me a lot of my grand-mother :) ) Beautiful area, quiet, perfect boondocking place! She even gave us a bag of deluxe snacks before we left, so lovely and kind. Thank you very much again and we would definitely come back there if we have too!


April 2019

Very beautiful spot

We stayed one night on this beautiful spot. John was not there we spoke with his wife Lois. She is a very friendly lady and offers us water and electricity. The spot is very quiet. If we are in the neighborhood we come again. We recommend this host.


April 2019

Our 1st Boondocks adventure!

Thank you for a great spot, easy in & out. Enjoyed hearing about your adventures & sharing ours! Sorry we didn't meet John but maybe next time! Thank you again for a great evening!


April 2019

Great stay with John & Lois

We had a great time staying at John & Lois’ driveway. They were lovely people and we even went and got some food together. We had great talks about life and family and they gave us some cookies to take with us which were delicious. Hopefully we get to see them again on the road! Or hopefully they come visit Canada and we can go on some adventures together! Either way we hope you guys keep in touch! Thanks!


March 2019

New friends!

We had a wonderful stay at Hilltop Haven. It felt like being with friends and family. Beautiful area, perfect camping spot, welcoming hosts, good conversations and lots in common made this a very enjoyable stay. We will be back, and hope if you ever come to Ontario you will come stay with us!


March 2019

Easy Quiet Stop

It was a very easy in and out. Our hosts made sure we had good directions to get to the place. It was a very peaceful evening. We would stop by again if we were in the area.


December 2018

Great Hosts!

John and Lois were very accommodating hosts and their property was perfect for our travel trailer. John made sure that we had the correct and detailed directions to their site. We would definitely stay there again if we were in the area. Thank you!


November 2018

Lovely property

I was kinda busy doing conference calls n such so didn't get to visit much with this very king host. I hope they will have me back on my next rip through here.


November 2018

A haven for RVs and their owners

Hill Haven is a great spot to park for the night among other RVers. The hosts are welcoming and make you feel very comfortable in setting up and in conversation. A very quiet environment and I would hope that my journeys lead me there again.


November 2018


Nice quiet,place


October 2018


Great friendly host and an easy big site to get into with water and electric. This was perfect for me, not really out of my way, and I could not have felt safer.
