We quit our jobs and sold everything in Fairbanks, AK to fulfill our dream of catching a fish in every state. We plan to take about a year to travel the country in our 5th wheel before settling down in New England to be closer to family.

We were pretty busy, so didn't get much time to visit, but would welcome them back any time!

We were busy during their stay, so didn't get a chance to visit much, but the time we did chat, very friendly, quiet and would welcome them back any time!

Almost half way to your goal.

Friendly couple on a great adventure. Glad we had the opportunity for them to stop and share some of their experiences. They were very appreciative and respectful of our host location. Welcome back any time. Hope our paths cross again on the road. Travel safe.

Very interesting couple with an interesting plan

A very nice and interesting couple, traveling from Alaska and planning to fish in all of the lower 48 states. We are their third state, and they did get to fish, but didn't catch anything, but that's not required. We were their first boondockerwelcome host, I hope we gave a good impression. We would have them back anytime. Oh, and I have to mention the smoked salmon from Alaska that they shared with us, delicious!
