Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We live in a nice small town of rural south Georgia. Thomasville promotes itself as a retirement area. The town has quiet a history. Husband is 71 and worked for FEMA for 16 years and I am 60 and work as a caregiver at an assisted living facility. We traveled for a while with our fifth wheel (still have it). We did some work in Ocala National Forrest first time out and kinda enjoyed it (middle of summer) But economics and some health issues have us sitting it out for now. We live just 1/8 mile out of city limits on 4 acres of land. We would love to hear about your RV travels and experiences.

Skills & Expertise to Share

None of any particular. Husband is a high rise million dollar plus project manager before retiring to FEMA for 16 years, now re-retired. We have owned our own business in 18 wheel trucks and developed some software for disaster projects. Experienced in a variety of career /work disciplines.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Located along the Natchez Trace in Mississippi. Camping at any one of the three campgrounds along the Parkway (Rocky Springs, Jeff Busby, and Meriwether Lewis) is free and available on a first come, first served basis. We came through close to the end of August one year and were treated to thousands of fire flies at night putting on a show in the woods.

Good Experience

This was our first time to use a Boondockers Welcome location and it was very positive - just like we hoped it would be. Our hosts were very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. The parking area was large and easy to maneouvre around. We slept very well in the quiet surroundings. After hearing what the area offers we are thinking of returning on our way home - assuming our hosts will have us back!
