The husband is retired, or maybe just tired. The wife still works when they are home in Central Oregon and putters around the yard in her flower beds. We love to travel about the country, would love to travel by RV to Alaska but may never get around to it. We try to travel around the SW during the winter months, staying mostly in Thousand Trails. We have gotten into geocaching and have traveled about letting that guide our route at times.
The wife doesn't particularly like to cook but can do it, the husband nor wife have no particular skills though the husband makes a fairly good handy man.
Between pets at this time but plan to get another small dog soon.
Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, AZ and dry camping away from civilization in Nevada.
We have a 2003 National RV, Tradewinds, 37 foot with 2 slides, both on the drivers side. We tow a Ford Explorer.
We truly enjoyed our two night stay with Ron and Libby! We dropped our cargo trailer on the street in front of their house, and they put us and our pickup camper in their fenced backyard instead of in their side yard so our 12 year old Lhasa Baxter could be off-leash. The first evening, we sat with them at their patio table enjoying adult beverages and good conversation, and Baxter just sat at Ron's feet. The next morning we unloaded our scooters from the cargo trailer and headed off the Bend. We came back in the afternoon, and enjoyed another afternoon of good conversation on their patio. We had left the camper door open so Baxter could go in an out at will, but they told us when they checked he mostly just stayed inside the camper but finally did come out. Ron and Libby are "Baxter approved" folks and are first class BW hosts by us, highly recommended!
We had a fantastic stay with HDT’s. They are friendly, helpful and accommodating. We had troubles with our truck and they went down with us to get it sorted at a local shop. We couldn’t have asked for anything better and would love to stay with them again. Thank you for everything x
Such a hot day and so nice to come home to the High Desert Travelers.
They provided us a cool and refreshing Oasis on our way through town,
and made sure we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay.
Despite a long shift that day and another looming the next day,
Mrs HDT took the time to visit with us both in the evening and the next morning over coffee.
We stayed in their quiet side yard and had a wonderful sleep that night,
and were able to have an early start the next day after a coffee.
We shared mutual traveling tales and information and would hope to meet with them again!
There are lots of good people out there in the world and these two are tops!
I’m batting 1000! Yet another wonderful couple who make you feel like your visiting family. I will them and I’m grayedul for the safe and warm-hearted place to stay. Thank you and God Bless you both!
High Desert Travelers were lovely hosts. Very accommodating.
If you need a respite in central Oregon, be sure to reach out to them. They are friendly and just lovely people.
Sweating bullets, all the local parks filled due to the eclipse, local parking lots filled with RV's with no where to stay. HighDesertTravelers took us in....Let us park on the street in front so we didn't have to even unhook our car. We got to sit in the back yard for some pleasant conversations and our old desert dingo could wiggle on the green grass and sniff to his heart's content...(no green grass at our desert hide out!) Didn't need to hook up because as soon as the sun went down the temp dropped to a nice sleeping range. Thanks guys for the pointers on the road north, we could have ended up in North Dakota!!!! Yikes!!!
HighDesertTravelers answered our mail imiddiatly and even ofered to pick us from the Redmond Airport as we arrived by flight from Toronto.
They were our first summer 2017 stop and they helped us get ready to get on the road including recommending a place to serve thr truck and give us a ride to and back from the garage.
We enjoyed every minute with them, hope to see them again.
The are GOOD PEOPLE.
Tony and I loved these two wonderful people. They were very helpful in so many ways. We felt very welcome camping in their yard and our pups enjoyed romping in the fenced in yard. We hope to stay friends and see them again in Redmond or on the road. Happy Trails to you both.
Our request was answered promptly, and we were made very welcome.
We had a quiet night in nice location.
