Retired professionals; he was IT (systems analyst), she was medical (non-clinical) field.

We enjoy a simple, quiet life on 25 acres of beautiful, naturally wooded land surrounded by the Mark Twain National Forest, and only 5 mIles from the clear blue waters of Table Rock lake and an amazing full-service marina and restaurant.

Outdoor pursuits, in addition to RVing, include: scuba diving, fishing, hunting, scenic exploration, and camp dutch oven cooking.

IdleTime's Pets

We love animals! Our pets include 2 dogs; a redbone hound mix, and a chihuahua (the diva); 1 chicken (hen), although she plans to add more hens next spring; and a promenade of forest creatures (deer, wild turkey, foxes, bobcat, etc.), although they are wild and not really pets.
FYI - With the exception of the forest animals, all our pets are contained and do not run free unless we are outside with them. The dogs often, but not always, travel with us. They are not allowed off leash when we travel.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Short stay -
just about anywhere legal where we can safely rest for awhile before continuing our journey.

Long stay -
Colorado, especially around the Nederland area.
Arizona BLM lands...Ehrenberg, Quartzsite, Yuma, etc.
Wyoming...Medicine Bow national forest.

IF we stay in a "developed" campground (rarely), it is usually a COE or national forest campsite.

IdleTime's Hometown

We are both Missouri natives, but lived/worked in Tulsa, Oklahoma for over 20 years before retiring to Missouri to build our dream home. Closest town (20 minute drive) is Cassville, Missouri (Walmart, restaurants, post office, gas, laundromat), a typical, small rural community. One hour to: Silver Dollar City and Branson, Mo. attractions; Worlds of Wonder and Bass Pro in Springfield, Mo., Joplin, Mo.; Rogers/Bentonville, Arkansas. 30 minutes to eclectic and colorful Eureka Springs, Arkansas.
