Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Retired and living on 4 1/2 acres with a few animals. Some are pets, some are dinner. I have climbed California's highest mountains, one of which is visible from our property (Mt. Shasta, 14165 ft.). I still enjoy the outdoors and travel to Europe when I can afford it. I speak passable German and enjoy practicing my German with Germans who like to practice their English.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I do a bit of fine woodworking.

CaliforniaBob's Pets

We have an outdoor cat.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Areas in the national forest all around us provide many opportunities for privacy and for visiting some of the national parks in northern California.

CaliforniaBob's Hometown

Palo Cedro is an unincorporated area about 5 miles east of the Redding city limits. Properties here are pretty much 3-15 acres. It is a very nice semi-rural area, but hot in the summer.

Beautiful and peaceful spot

CaliforniaBob was a great host. Spacious driveway and welcoming host. He spent time telling me about the area and suggesting great places to visit. His property is gorgeous with expansive views. Heartily recommend!

Another Interesting Host Experience

Lots of connections from similar Chicago origins to similar training and similar professional experiences. We even share an interest in bird houses - there are lots of them around the property. The location is stunning and private sitting on top of a hill with a view to the East that is to die for. Even had a chance to meet the young lambs and multiple chicks. We will return to enjoy more of the hosts and the local energy.

Wonderful location

Not far from Redding and surrounded by Blue Oaks and home made interesting bird feeders.

Lovely stop

We had a lovely overnight stop at Bob and Barb’s. Their property is gorgeous with incredible views. They were warm and welcoming and we felt comfortable walking around the property, seeing the chickens and so many birds and sitting on the deck. Nice level spot to park our van. Easy access to the freeway but so far away from the noise! Definitely a great overnight stop.

Quiet and beautiful

The site is beautiful, quiet, and very peaceful. CaliforniaBob was very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed from a good social distance. I would absolutely recommend this host.
