Jerry is a retired commercial pilot, who continues to pursue his love of flying, as well as motorcycling, and all manner of projects and experiments.
Margot has been a full time homemaker, who loves reading, gardening, yoga, and sharing in travel adventures and grand parenting with Jerry.
Right now we travel in an old Airstream trailer that we lovingly rehabbed, towing by our Sprinter van.
Jerry is a skilled mechanic of almost anything that has an engine, and also a compulsive do-it-yourselfer.
Margot dabbles in gardening, cooking, sewing, and loves poetry, philosophy and ideas.
Our mini golden doodle, Koda is our greatest asset when we travel. She loves people and introduces us to as many as she can.
Most recently, Baja California, Mexico.
We love the west - Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming, Texas, Montana and more. We’re still exploring and loving the Boondockers Welcome advantages.
Our address is Lebanon TN, although we live between Murfreesboro and Lebanon, about thirty minutes out of Nashville.

Very good communicators. Offered to let them stay an extra night. No problem as we were traveling ourselves. Welcome back anytime!
Koda and her parents were great guests. No problems, welcomed back again.
We very much enjoyed visiting with this couple. They were great guests. Their sweet dog, Koda, and our dog, Star had a blast playing with each other and I could have watched them for hours. We wish them a great adventure ahead and safe travels. They are certainly welcome to return to River's Edge.
Such a lovely couple with the best dog ever! Koda, sure did look like you enjoyed yourself! You are all three welcome back anytime!
We THOROUGHLY enjoyed hosting the Fraybirds! We spent our afternoon and evening exchanging stories, and would loved for them to have stayed longer. Hopefully they will return some time - we'd definitely look forward to it!
I forgot to mention their fabulous little red golden doodle, Koda, who our same-sized poodle really enjoyed, as did we! Couldn’t be cuter or sweeter!
We and the friends with whom we were camping felt an instant connection with Fraybirds, from the moment they accepted our invitation to join us at our campsite at the coast, rather than at our home!
They are charming — friendly, interesting and adventurous.
So we were doubly delighted to be able to host them here a few days later, and to have their help finishing off the rest of that 100# bag of oysters!
We feel that we have truly made new friends, and that we will see each other again!
They were so kind and friendly! They met us when we arrived, helped us get settled for the night with a plug in, and even offered us coffee in the morning! Truly some of the most friendly people we've met on the road.
Jerry greeted me and asked if I like beer.
I’m from Wisconsin so obviously a big yes.
I was then treated to a great home made ipa and homemade soup that Margot made.
I have been traveling 6 days and by far the best meal and company of my trip.
I only hope they will travel to Wisconsin one day do I can feed them brats and a few local beers.
Thank you to these great hosts.
We had the pleasure staying with Fraybirds one night extra then requested. It was so peacefull that after spending the day in Nashville the second night was a welcoming one. Although we did not spend a lot of time to sit down with them we felt at home. We would definitely recommend Fraybird as a host location and their wonderful dog Coda was a plus.
What a great coincidence to stay with fellow Loopers. Fun and convivial evening talking over common experiences.
Terrific and hospitable place to stay. Highly recommended!
I had a terrific stay at Frsybirds location. The hosts were personable and gracious! I’d recommend this location to anyone!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Very kind and interesting couple :)
Lovely hosts, lovely setting. Clare felt right at home with her buddy Koda. Thank you Fraybirds. Hope to see you on our return trip.
This place is a great base to explore Nashville from!
It’s hidden from the road but host’s instructions helped us find it easily.
Beautiful spot in the woods with tons of place to park. Hosts were a lovely couple that brought out toys for our kids to play with and welcomed us to get ready to go on the road again.
Thank you for the lovely stay!
Very welcoming hosts. Had a great visit learned of travels and places to see. Super nice people. Great location.
Our hosts proved great company, very generous, and very hospitable. Beautiful quiet area perfect for sleeping.
