We have lived for 15 years in the Middle-East, Marc was a computer engineer. That is where we learned sailing and fell in love with traveling on the water. Retired since 2012, we own a small 21,5 ft RV. We also own a 25 ft sailboat at the marina in La Baie, Québec, on the Saguenay Fjord. We have not been boondocking a lot yet, but are looking forward to travel more and more in the years to come. Last winter we bought "RV boondocking in Southern Texas" and we spent 6 marvelous weeks on the road.
Marc is a keen woodworker, and Lise a passionate birdwatcher.

Nous avons vécu pendant 15 ans au Moyen-Orient où Marc travaillait en tant qu'ingénieur informaticien. C’est là que nous sommes tombés en amour avec la voile et les voyages sur l’eau. À la retraite depuis 2012, nous avons un petit motorisé de 21 pieds. Nous possédons également un voilier de 25 pieds au port de plaisance de La Baie, au Québec, dans le fjord du Saguenay. Nous n'avons pas beaucoup voyagé en campeur à date, mais nous sommes impatients de pouvoir partir plus souvent dans les années à venir. À l’hiver 2017-2018, nous avons acheté "RV Boondocking in Southern Texas" et nous avons passé 6 semaines merveilleuses sur la route.

We have a beautiful female cat called "Coquine", french for " hussy". She's grey with long hair, and she travels very well with us. We walk her with a leash and she's very comfortable with it.

Très beau séjour / Very nice stay

Nous avons eu une excellente première expérience.
Les hôtes de Gribou étaient merveilleux et nous avons adoré la petite Coquine. Très accueillant et généreux pour le temps qu'ils nous ont accordé et l'utilisation de leur terrain. Nous avons passé deux nuits reposantes dans leur magnifique environnement en pleine nature. Nous avons adoré notre séjour et nous recommandons cet endroit de Boondocking. Super pour le vélo, la randonnée et la baignade, si vous aimé l'eau froide :).

We had an excellent first time experience.
The hosts from Gribou were wonderful and we loved the little Coquine. Very welcoming and generous with both their time and the use of their land. We spent two restful nights in their beautiful environment surrounded by nature.We loved our stay and absolutely recommend this Boondocking location. Great for cycling, hiking and swimming, if you like cold water :).

Wonderful stay!

We had a wonderful time exploring the Saguenay area and the many great places our hosts told us about. We thoroughly enjoyed getting to know our hosts and were a bit sad to leave! We would be very happy to host them at our place anytime, and would not hesitate to ask to stay again if we are back in the area. While the driveway is a bit of a challenge, the view at the top is wonderful! Merci beaucoup!

BEAUTIFUL LOCATION

A beautiful area with so many things to see and do. The site has a beautiful view of the bay. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful, offering suggestions for local things to see and do. We will return to the Saguenay area in the future for more touring. Many thanks to our host for a wonderful visit.
