Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I am a retired geologist and my wife is a retired high school teacher. We have travelled from coast to coast in Canada with our fifth wheel. We have also camped extensively in the SW of the USA; in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. We have also made several trips to Florida with our rig.
We enjoy state and national parks where we can do some hiking or cycling. We have become interested in bird watching after visiting Bentsen State Park in southern Texas.
At home we enjoy gardening and our grandchildren.
As for hobbies, I paint landscape pictures and enjoy photography. My wife enjoys gardening and volunteers with her church.

KINDRED SPIRITS WE ARE!

How wonderful it was to see our Canadian friends. We met Mister50 when we stayed with them as a Boondocker’s Welcome guest last summer. Though our time with them was short, we left their place feeling like ‘friends forever’. This week they returned the favor by stopping over at our place while traveling. Our two days together were filled with swapping camping stories and making lists of must see places. KINDRED SPIRITS WE ARE! The hours we spent together were enchanting, and we did not want it to end. Mister50 is welcome here anytime. We are already planning our 2019 get together. Safe travels my friends.

Another great visit to our home

Doug and Linda stayed at our place in June of 2013 and we were more than pleased to have them stay once again in Sept of 2014. Had a great visit and caught up on things that transpired over the last year. Doug is a landscape painter and presented us with a couple of cards highlighting his paintings....very nice to have. Hope they can drop by again when they are passing through our area.

Great Spot

I highly recommend this spot. We were greeted upon arrival and invited into their home after dinner. Was great to get their advice on travels by rv as they have been doing it for many years. Close to Sudbury and great hiking/biking trails. Lovely couple, would certainly go back if in the Sudbury neighbourhood. Wish we had the proprty to host as it is a great wsy to make new friends with a common interest. Thanks again.

A slice of heaven

There are times in life when you meet someone and the moment is instantly magical. You feel like you have known these people forever, and you are instantly friends for life. Such was our encounter with our host ‘Mister 50’. What a delight. Wonderfully warm people. We were greeted as we pulled up, and they quickly helped us get backed in and set up. Everything was exactly as described, and they were very quick to return phone emails. They have promised to visit us next year, and we are already excited about their upcoming visit.

Excellent stay

We stayed one night at Mister50's place. Excellent host. Very easy to access their place and good parking spot. After dinner we had excellent discussion about everything... I am not a fine art expert, but I can tell you that he creates outstanding pictures, very talented painter (trust me much better than me...!).

Great evening spent chatting about travels

Our hosts in Sudbury welcomed us into their home for tea on a cold evening. We talked for hours about our travel experiences and had a great time. They are welcome to stay with us anytime.

Great boondocking hosts !

Staying with Doug and Linda was our introduction to Boondocking.... it couldn't have been better. They welcomed us very graciously into their home and gave us some good advice about what to see on our road trip. I would certainly recommend Mister 50.
