Retired floral shop owner with amazing & beautiful wife.

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

My wife and I are in our third year of full-time RV living and travel. We love taking in all the beauty this country holds, and meeting so many wonderful people throughout the U. S. We're non-smokers and very light drinkers.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Master craftsman in floral design, and pretty handy with tools. Grew specialty cut flowers before retiring.

davestaelgraeve's Pets

We have a beautiful miniature aussie named Molly, who was born April 6th, 2021. She's super - smart and well behaved. She's a great traveler, crate trained, and housebroken. Very good at obeying many commands and is constantly learning new skills.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

So far, our favorite spots for boondocking are Spencer Bay on Moosehead Lake in Maine, and The Steps in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. We have also been lucky to get 5 nights at Upper Teton View.

davestaelgraeve's Hometown

Sevierville, Tennessee is our current home of record, but we lived most of our married life in Ida, Michigan.

The best guests I never met!

I was out of town the week they stayed, but my mom (who was watching the place for me) enjoyed meeting them and their pup, and I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the gift of spicy sweet pickles they left for me. Recommended and welcome back any time.

Wonderful guests

Enjoyed their stay here, they were very tolerant of our barky puppy Peaches. They seemed to get out and enjoy the area each day. Welcome anytime they're in the area.

Fun Couple starting their new life on the road.

Boondockers Welcome never ceases to amaze us. This couple, who just started RV living full time was such a joy to host. They shared their adventures with us around a fire with chili dogs and drinks. They even left us a departing gift which was just perfect. We highly recommend hosting them and hope they stop back by in the future.

Another great Boondocker couple!

What a great couple! We had a great evening of conversation, and even had help tagging one of my newborn calves! These folks, like all of our guests so far, are welcome back anytime.
