We are coming to retirement age and are in the planning stages of doing some traveling with our newly acquired Class A RV. Meeting other RVers and hearing their stories is something we very much look forward to. Our dream trip will be heading north through Canada to visit relatives and then spending lots of time in Alaska!

Skills & Expertise to Share

My husband is a media specialist so travels with his cameras, lighting and sound equipment. He is also a computer and electronics geek. My interests include reading, sewing, nutrition and exploring the great outdoors.

skywood's Pets

We currently have our dog Agape and house cat Luna. Agape is just getting broken in to being on the road. She is a rescue who came with a truck full of other dogs from Alabama and hasn’t been too excited to go for rides. She does love to play with other dogs and is also a very good watch dog. Luna may join us also for the long treks, but doesn’t mind being our watch cat when we are gone.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

We have no favorite boondocking locations as yet since we are just beginning this lifestyle.

skywood's Hometown

Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin is the place we will always call home.

skywood's Rig

Rig Type: Class A

40 feet long

We own a 2000 Safari Continental 425 Panther and have a Chevy Tracker as a toad. We have one slide out, but do not need to use it to be comfortable. If an electrical hookup is not available we would only need to use the generator if our batteries are low.

Our new friends

Skywood stayed with us 2 different nights--one going to their destination and again on their return trip home. We were able to spend some quality time together on their return stay. Enjoyed getting to know each other and hope sometime we can boondock at their place.

Our new friends

They stayed with us on their way to their meeting and also on their return trip. They are very friendly and we had a great time visiting and getting to know each other. Agape is a very nice dog. Hoping we can stay at their place sometime soon.

Fantastic overnight stay!

Met new warm and welcoming friends, had a beautiful place to stay, and our pup even had a friendly playmate!

Truly a fantastic stay. The wonderful host was very helpful getting our big rig turned around. Would stay again in a heartbeat if we find ourselves back in the area!

A little taste of heaven

Really were encouraged to make ourselves at home and we did.
Had much in common and enjoyed ourselves more than any other stopover in ages. Quiet night and great weather plus excellent hospitality to top it off. Even loved their Agape.

Peaceful setting, panoramic views

We spent 3 great nights at Skywood. There was plenty of room in the yard to turn around our 36’ 5th wheel before parking on the edge of the driveway. The driveway is lined with trees, which provide welcome shade in the morning. Beyond the driveway, the view opens up to beautiful rolling hills.
Our hosts were friendly and accommodating. The weather was quite hot during our stay, and they kindly offered the use of an electric hook up. We spent a bit of time visiting, learning about the construction of their unique stacked cordwood home.They also had great recommendations for restaurants and activities in the area; we were pleasantly surprised by how much the little town of Elkhart Lake had to offer.
We would stay at Skywood again.

Wonderful views

We had a very enjoyable stay at this location. The hosts were great - we would return if passing through the area again. Hoping to hook up with the hosts in the future when they begin traveling.

Beautiful View Amazing house Lovely Hosts

Perfect place to stop for the night. Look out over the rolling farmland, bird watch, hike the ice age trail. More like a vacation spot than a stopover. Very kind and welcoming hosts. Would highly recommend this spot.
