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.
I am reasonably computer literate . I paint in watercolour and acrylic. My wife is a very good cook and often improvises with recipes to produce great dishes.
We enjoy them all.
Our rig is a 33 foot fifth wheel which we pull with a Ford F250 gas engine. It has two slides which project out three feet to give a total width for the trailer of about 11 feet. We don't take up too much space.
A very short visit of this nice couple! ..... we had a good time around the table to share stories ...... they are Welcome to us as soon as they pass nearby ! we can not wait to see them again!
A very friendly couple. The only problem is that they didn’t, stay long enough. They are welcome back any time and I would like that their stay next time will be a bit longer.
The main reason that we are Boondockers Welcome members is because we enjoy the camaraderie of meeting fellow campers. With some members you instantly become lifelong friends. That is exactly the case with Mister50. This was their second visit to our place. We were also lucky enough to stay at their place three years ago.
You could not hope to meet finer people than Mister50. Their love for traveling and their zest for living is contagious. Mister50 is welcome back here anytime, and I do pray that they come back soon. (and, stay longer.)
Wonderful guests, very gracious and grateful. Would recommend anyone hosting them and I hope to be their guest one day in the future! Safe travels.
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.
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.
We shared travel stories and experiences.Welcome back anytime.Mister 50 is a talented artist also.
A pleasure to meet and deal with this couple.
Very nice couple who stayed at our place and visited with us in our home. Had wonderful time sharing experiences and other topics.
They are welcome any time at our place.
Not far from the HWY, quiet road, good level site with hydro for the frig. What more do you need. Met with the 50’s and had a bit of a chat. Nice couple, stop in and see them if you’re in the area.
We realy enjoy the place,close to everything to visit in Sudbury.
Butifull garden and host very nice , helpfull with good tips to repair my Rv, .
Thanks, Hope to see you soon at my place
Mister50 had a lovely property with a driveway that accommodated our 33ft rig. Mister50 came out to see us and welcome us onto his land. I wish we had more time to enjoy the garden and surrounding area but with Covid -19 and a destination of family in Southern Ontario it was only one night and we left mid-morning. Thank you.
We had to move our scheduled date ahead a few days due to quite inclement weather we encountered. They were very accommodating and kind to us. However, understandably due to COVID-19 pandemic, we were unable to do any socializing together. The site we used was very quiet, clean and an awesome yard to explore. We would recommend this site for someone wanting a quiet site.
Great hosts, unfortunately we did not have enough time to have a good talk about there travels. Maybe next time when we are in the area, we would be able to book a longer stay.
Not only the sole BW host in Sudbury, which was very useful, but also pleasant and quiet place to spend the night. There was a large, flat, shaded parking spot, and our host generously offered the use of electricity and dining tent. A beautiful garden added to the experience.
Thanks Mister50 for your hospitality and generosity to us! We were able to have a good rest for 2 nights on our cross country trip. The driveway was pretty level side to side. The views of your property were refreshing with trees and beautiful gardens! Thanks to our hosts for your kind hospitality and sharing with us several practical tips for RVing to RV newbies from RV veterans! Happy travels in the future! Adrian & Ann
Lovely quiet location, easy to get into with any size rig. Host were very friendly and welcoming even during Covid restrictions. We all wore masks outside and social distanced. Hopefully we will meet again when we can as we have so much in common. Thank you for letting us stay on our way back from wintering in BC. Made it easier as campgrounds are closed. Until we meet again
We had a nice short stay at this wonderful and quiet place.
Very kind and generous hosts.
Host recommended us to go hiking and biking to Kivi and Bell Parks. Unfortunately, it was raining but we took the time to go and have a quick look. Location is also close to lakes. We will have to come back to explore more. Thank you for everything!
I really appreciated spending a night at this very quiet and peaceful location. Host help me get installed and was near by if I would have needed anything. Thanks for this stay!
On our way To British Colombia, we spent the night there for a one night stay.
Was Nice To be si close from hghway 17 and It was so quiet
Our host helped us get situated when we arrived and then proceeded to share his knowledge of the area. We also enjoyed some fresh veggies from the garden! If you are in this area, this is a great location. Thank you, Mister50!
Thank you so much! Wonderful visit. The cucumber and green beans were enjoyed tonight. As we talked, please know you are welcome to visit our host location when coming down to our area, and I know coming back your way, we have a safe port. Your gardens are spectacular. I did see one monarch fly off last night, the other in the garage got a wee bit of banana this morning. Hoping she found her wings to fly. Again, Thank You.
Dès notre arrivée, ont ses senti comme à la maison! Très accueillant et sympathique et ils nous ont même offert des légumes de leurs jardins. Bien situé, près du centre-ville de Sudbury. Merci encore pour le séjour!
Very friendly and welcoming. Nice level spot under a big tree to help keep out the heat of the day. They shared one of their garden cucumbers and fresh raspberries with us which was very delightful. Thank you for the lovely stay.
We had a lovely stay at Mister50 - a beautiful and very quiet property.
Everything was easy. They were super friendly, kind and generous - even offered us a cucumber and some raspberries from their garden!
We would easily welcome them to boondock with us!
Keith and Robyn
Our first night at a Boondock's Welcome location could not not have been a better experience. The hosts were super nice. They even gave us fresh raspberries from their beautiful garden. The location is close to the highway, it was easy to park the RV on the property and it was very quiet for a good night's sleep.
Beautiful Garden 🌹🌻🌺and nice property where our very kind and friendly and helpful hosts welcomed us. We even received fresh salad, which was enjoyed.
Thanks so much for your warm welcome🏕 and letting us stay for a comfortable visit.
We wish you God's blessing and lots of great travels🚙
Thanks for letting us stay at your home and a great warm up with a hot cup of tea.
My stay in Sudbury was excellent, Mister50's openness and generosity went a long way to put my mind at ease.
We had a great couple of days here! Sudbury is beautiful and the couple was so welcoming, friendly, and informative about local attractions and histories. It was so great to connect with likeminded people that enjoy to travel just as much as us!
Very good hosts indeed. Superb guides to help us look for the best places to visit in town.
Lovely Lorna and I stayed here while making a run from Peterborough, Ontario to Pancake Bay Provincial Park as part of our Magnificent Adventure - 2018 - #MAG2018. Our hosts a retired educator and a retired geologist invited us into their home after we arrived and settled in making our one evening pleasant indeed. We spoke of many fine RV events and notions related to our nomadic lifestyle and will visit again when up this way.
Thanks for the camaraderie.
Be safe: have fun: don't hurt anyone!
Doug and Linda have accumulated many 1000s of miles (kilometres) in travel through the USA and Canada. They are exceptionally generous and suggesting locations for our future campsites and places we can find usual experiences, such as Rock Hound State Park in NM. Developing a dialogue with them matches one's expectations for very experienced hosts. They were terrific, and we only regret that because of our schedule, we did not arrive before 7:00pm. Their location is accessible and very quiet.
Doug and Linda were very hospitable hosts. They gave us a tour of their beautiful garden and told us the history of mining and smelting in the Sudbury area. Not only was this a very quite area, but also an easy on/off from the main road.
Doug and Linda were great hosts. We spent an enjoyable evening visiting with them. They are very experienced travellers and shared their knowledge and experiences with us. We planned on visiting the Big Nickel and they even printed out a map for us to avoid road construction. Thank you for everything.
We enjoyed spending time with our hosts in a beautiful neighbourhood near Sudbury. They were very gracious, and we had fun exchanging stories about our RVing adventues.
Doug & Linda we’re supper host.
They have a beautiful home in a Very quite neighborhood with easy RV accommodations.
We had a nice visit and they were very helpful with directions and information about their city.
Thank you Doug & Linda it was a pleasure meeting you both. Also thanks for sharing your delicious veggies from your garden, yummy.
Lots of Hugs, Pat & Rudy Armbruster “ Love2travel “
Great hosts... and willing to share some great RVing knowledge!
Generous folks willing to help others along their journey.
Very easy to get to from the Trans Canada highway. I certainly recommend staying with Mister50!
Thanks for having us.
This location all around Sudbury is very pretty & worth returning to. 2 days is not enough.
The city of Sudbury is much bigger than I expected at approximately 155,000+ population.
The host Doug is a great guy &'is willing to assist & advise you of things to do or see.
Unfortunately, I did not have the opportunity to meet Linda simply because our schedules
did not coincide. I am certain she is an amazing Lady.
Doug & Linda both enjoy sharing their wonderful location & are great hosts.
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.
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.
We stayed two nights with Mister50, and also when we didn't meet for long discussions because we all were busy, they gave us some informations and tips. thanks for the good spot and enjoy your summer.
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...!).
We really enjoyed their company and great conversations about travel. Nice quiet location, we slept well! Hopefully we will meet up some time during our travels.
Very friendly hosts, informative about the area. Perfect site for a nice night to relax. Very welcoming and we'd love to visit again. Thanks!
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.
Thanks to Doug I was able to find his place without any problems. He and his wife were great hosts and had a good place for me to park.
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.
We stayed here for a night last week. Large driveway to back into. 15amp electricity was offered. We had a wonderful evening in their home.We highly recommend this place for boondocking. Easy to find,close to highway.
