Retired single male full-timing in a small travel trailer.

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Having sold my home, I decided to take a year or two to travel this beautiful country in a small camper. No particular plans other than to try to stay south of the snow line for the winter then head to more temperate climes as spring filters in.

By way of background, I've had a career as an engineer, marketer, and manager in high technology. My interests are quite varied and include bicycling, kayaking, hiking, reading, and being outdoors in general. Always interested in learning new things, exploring new places, and meeting new people.

Skills & Expertise to Share

As a former engineer, I can often figure out fixes for various kinds of problems that arise in households (or campers). Will not be traveling with many tools but happy to assist if you happen to have your own. Fairly good computer and electronic device experience. No woodworking skills and no artisan skills I'm sad to say.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

I don't know yet but am excited to begin exploring and sharing!

Ccarlson's Hometown

Right now, I have no permanent home but will be living in my camper as I travel around North America. Previously, I lived in beautiful New Hampshire for 43 years. Don't know where I will settle next but returning to New England is a possibility.

Traveling Kayaker

We didn't get to spend much time with our wonderful guest because he was actually using BW what it was designed for ( a safe overnight stay while traveling), but the conversations and interactions with him was very enjoyable. He has a wealth of knowledge to share and both ourselves and our other BW guest were eager to absorb what he shared.
This Gentleman is certainly welcome to return anytime he likes( besides he has a really cool travel trailer).Safe travels and Happy Paddling!

Perfect boondocker guest!

We enjoyed hosting Ccarlson! He was a perfect guest - he communicated his plans clearly, and arrived as expected. We enjoyed a fun evening chatting, and then shared a nice bike ride in the morning together.

We would gladly host him again. He is the kind of guest that make us enjoy being Boondocker hosts!

Ccarlson was our first time hosting, woohoo! It’s nice to finally be a host, we met so
Many nice ones on our travels. Ccarlson was very gracious, and showed us his rig. We talked about his and our adventures. We hope he has the best time. Such a nice guy.

Short stay, but pleasant and relaxing

Carl, it was good to meet you, and interesting conversation. It goes to prove "It's a Small World After all".
