We are both retired and enjoying life as much as possible. We met in High School in Misawa, Japan. We were both raised in military families. Brian has many talents. Loves to build things, a musician, always learning new things. He had his own business as a videographer doing wedding videos. Fran is a retired postmaster after 25 yrs of service. She is also a Reiki Therapist, loves to do quilts, crafts and anything that she can do with her hands and creative mind. She is also the admin for Cargo Trailer Conversion on Facebook. We have two grown sons. And have a 15 yr old grand daughter and a 7 year old Grandson.

Skills & Expertise to Share

A little of about everything. We love meeting new people. Brian building. Have remodeled 2 homes built our own camper etc etc.

Brizel's Pets

We love animals but now trying to downsize so that we have more time to travel. At one time had 3 dogs, 6 cats, 4 chickens and two cows. We lost the last of our dogs this past year. We are now down to one cat . Yes we live on 20 acres so lots of room for the animals.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Haven't really did a lot of bookdocking. But we have camped all over the place. Each year we take at least one big trip that usually average about 5000 miles.

Brizel's Hometown

We live just outside of Lewisburg, TN. It's an hour drive south of Nashville, an hour an a half NW of Chattanooga and an hour or so North of Huntsville, AL. Lewisburg has a festival the second weekend of Oct called Goats, Music & More. We are the home of the Fainting Goats and also the home of the Tennessee Walking Horse. We are about 8 miles south of Henry Horton State Park.

Nice folks

Brizels we’re just with us for one night but we visited a little and shared stories. They were pleasant guests and are welcome back any time.


October 2020

Pleasant company

They arrived early in the day and went about setting up, then we enjoyed a nice visit in the evening and watched a nice sunset and the planets and stars come up. My dog enjoyed the company also.

We had a change of wind direction in the evening and the smell from the local feedyards was quite strong (yuck) ....but my guests were good sports about it...

They are always welcome anytime here at Winford.

Fun couple with an impressive rig

Great to chat with these two and get the tour of their hand-built RV. They are doing boondocking the 'right way' (or one of the many), IMO. Happy to have had them here.

Very Talented Guests

We enjoyed meeting these new guests. We did not have much time to spend with them but hope the next visit will be different. We wish them safe travels and Godspeed as they journey to their destination.

Great Friendly Couple

Be sure to ask Brian if he plays any instruments.
The answer will surprise you.
And also ask about the Voodoo Lady.

Such an outstanding example of a Boondockers member!

This place will offer a country visit. They are wonderful people to talk with or listen to about gardening, food preparation, spiritual healing, music composition, woodworking and their experiences through life lessons. This was the perfect place for us as our previous 24hour period was very stressful. We were so relaxed in this quiet country setting/rural that we requested to stay an extra night. To say that we completely enjoyed our stay with this couple is an under statement. IT WAS PERFECT. Thank you and should you ever be in middle GA stop by our place. .

Our hosts were very accommodating and helpful. They were very thoughtful as well. While we were out, a rain storm came up and they put our chairs and barbecue under a shelter to keep them dry. We enjoyed our visit with our hosts!

Odd title, but fun to see these big cattle. Hosts were very kind and helpful, helping us into our spot for the night. A bit off the beaten path, but nice and peaceful.


March 2020


We didn’t visit with our hosts as much as I had wanted because I fell ill and departed a little early but they were most hospitable (offered us morning coffee with them) and friendly. They quickly responded to texts and foresaw anything we might need in advance. I enjoyed and learned a lot by touring Their custom designed pull behind camper made from a trailer.
Their land was open and refreshing and had a creek and small bamboo forest that we thought was real cool. Their neighbors’ land was open with rolling hills and some trees which increased the feeling of nature surrounding us.
They were very accommodating and we enjoyed visiting them and hope to return when we can stay longer.


November 2019

Quiet and spacious

Hosts were very friendly and helpful. Always responded promptly to communications with detailed directions to the location. They actually met us at the main road and guided us back. Gave us water to fill up our water tanks.
Nice quiet location. Big field which our dogs enjoyed playing in.
Only about 1 hour drive to Nashville. Also, close to a town with various amenities.
Overall, it was a great stay.


October 2019

Great stay

We got along great. Good nights rest. And the host went way above and beyond to make us feel welcome. Good communication would recommend for anyone around this area. Thanks Jim

Great folks!

In spite of the scary bridge entering the property, we loved staying with these folks. Quiet and peaceful. We've made friends for life!


March 2019

Great stay!

Such a nice couple that were so accommodating to us as we made a trip south to Florida. They were so helpful and friendly. Their property was perfect and quiet. They let our two little kids run all over. We would definitely stay there again!
