Do you know or have you hosted this user?

The Mrs. and I live on a acre of land (fenced) in rural north central Florida lakeside. We are both retired. We recently purchased a 5th wheel after maybe a 12 year hiatus from camping. We have several friends who RV/camp and their stories seduced us back.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I am a retired engineer among other careers/professions. I try to maintain everything I own. 2 cars, 1 truck, 1 cabin cruiser, 1 5th wheel, 1 lawn tractor, various power equipment, our home and property. I am busy. I thought I had retired. I have a tool garage with a lifetime accumulation of tools. I am more than happy to lend you tools or turn to.

friz's Pets

Yes. Two elderly basset hounds. They are friendly. We intend to travel with them.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

None as of yet. Purchased a 5th wheel last fall after a 12 year hiatus from camping. There are two Boondocker guests whom we look forward to visiting in New Hampshire and Nova Scotia.

Absolutely fantastic!

Host were extremely hospitality! Great place to spend a night and day. They shared their home and beautiful sunset over lake with me, as well as wine, and even homemade guacamole. And their two Basset Hounds were friendly and majestic.
I couldn’t have ask for more. Great spot and wonderful host!

Gorgeous sunset over the pond!

Our host was in touch with us in a very timely fashion and greeted us upon our arrival. We had fun sharing rv stories. What a beautiful spot complete with dancing sand hill cranes!

My stay with Friz at Melrose

The hosts were extremely hospitable, even sharing a glass of wine with me while we sat on their deck and watched the sand hill cranes dance about and the sun set.

We stayed here one night and wished we stayed longer. After staying at several boondocking places we have to say that this was the best one. Beautiful property, wonderful welcoming hosts and lovely dogs. On our way back we will try staying here again.
