I live outside of Rochester NY in a rural setting. I have a wide paved driveway, a 30 amp outlet and outdoor water so you can be very comfortable. A generator probably would not be a problem and we are very pet oriented here. I am 90 minutes from Niagara Falls, Buffalo, Niagrara Historical areas and wine region, 1 hour from goreous Finger Lakes region, with beautiful lakes,glens, waterfalls and award-winning wines, 3 to 5 hours from the Adirondack Mountain preserve, one day from NYC and about 4 hours from Canada. Also worth stopping to see is Genesee Country Village, a huge recreated village where I volunteer occassionally as a Civil War Reenactor. I would be very happy to guide to any of these sites (for Canada you need a passport or enhanced drivers license) whenever available. Lengh of stay can be a needed.
I am a very experienced quilter and often travel with my sewing machine. I'm getting very good at machine piecing and applique and love to teach quilting to others. I also have a passion for history and have been doing Civil War reenacting and Living History presentations since 1994. I love everything about America's social and cultural past. I also dabble in genealogy and enjoy hearing what others have done in that area.
Had really nice stays recently using Traval America truckstops on a trip from home to Colorado. Have used Pilot sucessfully but was impressed mightily with the TA's. However they are more plentiful going across the country than down and up. Also Cracker Barrel-have used 3 times with sucess, in Chicago area and in North Carolina. My favorite traveling directions are all ways but mostly East Coast and Midwest.
I'm taking steps to sell my motorhome and buy an Aliner pull trailer. This is because my camping style has changed to more out-and-about and not staying in one place, the camper sits too often in the driveway, motor and all,and I'm tired of not having the use of a car. Camping alone most of the time -although with other campers- it is enough space for me to have a box trailer. The good news for others is that my camper will now fit in my garage and my whole driveway is now open to boondockers. 'For my boondocking, my trailer will be 15 feet and the van another 15 but they can be separated.
I had told Pat where to park on the phone as I was not there at the time. By the time I got in I believe she was sleeping and by the time I was around she was gone. I'm sorry we never met and chatted. She was in and out very quiet and clean no one would even know.
Pat was exceptionally accommodating and welcoming. We really appreciated her hospitality. Her site worked very well for our needs.
While traveling West thru NY, we stopped and spent the night. Pat was very gracious allowing us to hook up electricity and even use her WiFi! The area is quiet at night but during the day there is a little traffic noise from the secondary Rd running in front of house. We slept very soundly. The site is level and paved. We had a very nice conversation and enjoyed her company. We hope we can recripicate if she travels near us. We would definitely stay with her again.
Pat Quilter was so fun talking with and so generous – while the road she's on is a bit loud at times, it settles down after dark and is a lovely spot. Would stay with her again in a heartbeat!
Pat met us when we arrived, she was very pleasant! A short driveway, but right off the road, no problems parking. Water and 30 amp electric were available. Some traffic on the road, but overall a quiet night's stay.
We couldn't have had a better experience for our first stopover with Boondockers Welcome. Pat was very helpful and accommodating toward my wife and I, and our 2 dogs. The site had power and water. Couldn't ask for more. <emoji>
Cannot recommend this person enough. She is totally an AWESOME person. Exetremely helpful in all ways. We needed an oil change before continuing. She found us a perfect place with detailed directions. But the absolute best experience was visiting with this lovely person when we arrived and the next morning before leaving. Thanks Pat for making us feel so welcome and lived......Larry
Pat Quilter was an awesome host. We stayed a few days and took advantage of her central location to see the sights. She is a wealth of information and assisted us in findings places to visit. She enjoys the camping life in her Aliner a sharing stories with others. Thank you, Pat.
We were warmly and generously welcomed by Pat, who stood at the end of her driveway with a flashlight on so we could find her in the dark. She helped us get plugged in, then invited us in so we could reheat our prepared (by the Wegmans grocery store) dinner and eat at a "real" dining room table. We visited quite awhile - Pat is a Civil War reenactment participant, and was preparing for a trip to the Grant Cottage on the SE edge of the Adirondacks where she would be telling the tales of Confederate soldiers as they made their long journey home when the war ended. She was full of great information, is an amazing quilter, and in the morning, directed us to the bike Trail along the Erie Canal (11 miles away) where we headed for a pleasant ride. We had a great stay.
We had an amazing stay with Pat. She hosted us for an extended stay while we waited for a temporary rental to become available. It was quiet, convenient and we always enjoyed a chat to start or end the day. Our travel trailer and tow vehicle fit great in the driveway right next to Pat's Aliner and car, and we enjoyed the time we spent on property. Thanks for a wonderful stay Pat! Hope to see you again soon. The Bodhi Family.
Myself plus three others were riding the New York Heritage Canal Trail and stayed overnight at Pat's. Great parking and hook up. Pat had some goodies for us + coffee or tea when we arrived. Being from PA near Gettysburg, we had a great discussion on the civil war. We were off the next morning. Had a great time. Thanks for everything Pat! Herb Bierly et. al., Dover, PA
