Do you know or have you hosted this user?

After 16 years of owning a small business and no vacations, I and my wife - who is retiring from head of catering at the world famous Tony Packos in Toledo, have turned to a minimalist lifestyle to travel the country, see all there is to see, and meet like minded people. 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.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

So far, after a year and a half of travel, our favorite spots for boondocking are Spencer Bay on Moosehead Lake in Maine, and The Steps in Lake Havasu City, Arizona.

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.
