Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Two 70+we’d who love retirement and the time and flexibility it brings for travel, meeting new people and seeing the world. Between us we have five grown children and five grandchildren. Don retired a year ago from electrical contracting, Jane 2 years ago from the nonprofit world and fund raising.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I enjoy working with tools but don't have expertise, I also enjoy fly fishing, water coloring, sewing, piano, but also no real expertise. I think the only thing I could say I am an expert on is tying a good bow for a package!

Don is great at fixing most anything.

It was a pleasure hosting this couple. So easy to please and we were able to have a lovely visit on the deck getting to know each other and share some snacks too. Would love to have them return anytime.

Great Couple

A breath of fresh air. Knowledgeable, positive, courteous, honest and they were just fun to be with. The time passed way too quickly and we wished they were staying for the full 5 days. They can return any time and we hope they do.

Enjoyable first guests

J & D were our first guest to stay from Boondockers welcome. I could not have asked for better guests. They were very friendly right from the start. We had great conversation over a drink. I only wish our busy schedules allowed more time. I hope they come back to visit and keep in touch.

Nice folks

They were just in late afternoon and out the next morning.
They had just purchased a new Scamp from the factory near us,
which was exciting for them.
They would be welcome back anytime.
