Full time RV'rs

Do you know or have you hosted this user?


My wife and I are full time nomads, traveling around the USA since April 2015.

We travel in a motorhome, but have enjoyed an occasional airbnb to mix things up!

We enjoy kind people, and quiet places. We like good conversation, and listening to stories. We also like being alone with our own thoughts. We do work on the road, so can get extremely busy, but mostly it's relaxed work and so we have time to explore and get to know people :)

We own a house in the Pacific Northwest, and rent it out while we travel so we understand the peace of mind that comes with having a respectful guest.

Sara is an ex dental hygienist, likes yoga and cute animals, and is a fantastic (healthy) cook. She likes flowers, vegetables, new experiences, but also digs some routine.

Derek is an ex professional photographer who likes exploring back roads on a bicycle, as well as mountain trails. He also likes swinging in a hammock. He prefers every day to be completely different. He also keeps a basketball handy at all times.

Things that we like to do together are sing(Sara) and play guitar(Derek, kind of -learning.) around a campfire. We also enjoy a week long backpacking or canoe camping trip, snowboarding, paddle boarding or exploring a new downtown/historic neighborhood on our folding bicycles.

Thank you for considering us!

Skills & Expertise to Share

we can play guitar and sing a few tunes around a campfire. I only shoot with an iPhone now, but would be happy to take a family picture :)

Talented and kind couple

We thoroughly enjoyed Derek and Sara's visit with us. They are a talented and easy-going couple, making the most of their on-the-road lifestyle. We hope to see them back our way to visit the manatees again together!

Considerate Folks

Very engaging couple. Extremely respectful and concerned about our property.
Constant rains made it a challenge for all - including cabin whether in unit or in the house.
Voluntarily relocated truck so it wouldn't cause ruts in our grass. So considerate.
Looking forward to hosting again...we will all do a sun dance beforehand.

Super couple, you'll be lucky to host them

I so enjoyed having them stay here, wish it could have been for longer. They are great guests, very respectful, ask before doing things. I'm looking forward to their return visit.

Great start to the new year

These are BDers that any and all hosts will love. We had the greatest visit and happy to have been part of their 20th anniversary and new year's celebration. Friendly, respectful and helpful with tips and tales of the nomad life. Their stay was so nice we allowed them to extend their time. And have their spot reserved for their return next year. Travel safe.

Fun loving and quiet couple

A wonderful friendly couple! They are a busy couple but make time to say hello and get to know others. Wish they didn't have to leave so soon so we could have learned a little more about each other but their work takes them to make new discoveries and new friends! You will not meet two nicer people so welcome them to your site if they ask for space and say hello!

We are looking forward to seeing you again when we are out on the road or back at our site when you're ready for some down time. You will always be welcome back to our little piece of paradise! Safe travels to you both! Thank you for spending some time with us!

Excellent Neighbors

We boondocked next to this couple for a week and they were the best neighbors. So friendly and inviting! Enjoyed a nice day trip to the beach with them, did yoga with Sara and had a jam session under the awning. So fun to get to know these two!

Hope to see you on the road!
