I am retired from many years of worldwide travel. Some as a suport technician and some as an instructor. I have been camping all my life, starting in tents progressing to tent campers, 5th wheels, motorhome and now have a Northern Lite truck camper. My wife and I now live a quiet life on a lake. Most of our travels now are to visit our children or vacation with them.

I have lots of handyman skills. I do most of the work on my own campers including both mechanical and electrical.

Wish they were neighbors!

It was a real pleasure staying with our hosts! They were welcoming, friendly, funny, and sincere; exactly the kind of folks we would be thrilled to have as neighbors. By the end of the evening we felt as if we'd known them for much longer. We would be honored to stay on their beautiful property again, and hope we do.

Wonderful stay

What a wonderful stay we had at Ralph and Donna’s home. Beautiful location situated overlooking a lake. Level gravel drive made for easy parking. Most of all we really enjoyed our time spent talking to Ralph and Donna, looking at their Alaska scrapbook and sharing our RV travel stories. Hoping we see them again one day. Thanks again!!

Great !

The site is exactly as represented. In a 30ft class C the inward dirt rd of only about 0.3mile posed no problems including no errant trees. Our very acomodating hosts were generous and forthcoming and we enjoyed good times, good informative conversation, shared coffee and treats - nautical and otherwise. All good !
Thanks and kind regards,

The Best of Newport

A fabulous Boondocking experience! We had a lovely level and shaded spot and a
120 volt/15 amp connection. We had a swim in the lake, which helped us cool down from the intense heat. I would highly recommend a stay with this host couple.

Welcoming

Lovely and well maintained property on a lake. Parking was on a gravel side drive, pull through and level. Our hosts were welcoming, and showed us around the property and down to the lake, inviting us to make use of the water access and screen shelter and other amenities as we would like. They respected our privacy but were also available to visit. We enjoyed talking "travel" with them. We would definitely request a stay here if we are passing through in the future.

Great Stop

Ralph and Donna have a beautiful property on a lake just off I95 in Maine. What more could you ask for in an overnight stop? Their property offered a peaceful night sleep, clean, clear air and cool nighttime temperatures. The huge yard is lovingly cared for and manicured. Sitting at the lake is a great way to recharge after days on the road.
But the best part of our stay was meeting Ralph and Donna. We felt like friends immediately, they are very gracious hosts. They shared information about places they have traveled and things they have seen. Donna has a scrapbook of their Alaska trip that we got to look at.
I definitely recommend this location if you need a stop in the area. We travel in a 42’ motorhome and tow a car and had no trouble by following Ralph’s directions instead of the GPS.
Thank you, Ralph and Donna!

A great boondockers experience

We had the privilege to be the first guest staying at Ralph+ Donna but I'm sure we will not be the last. In fact the second came only a few hours later. What a great experience. The location was quiet and serene and the hosts great rvers. We accepted the offer to stay a second night and visit local attractions suggested by Ralph. Enjoyed exchanging RV experiences of which they have many. I certainly hope Ralph +Donna will be able to visit us in Kansas the next time through. Highly recommend them as Boondocker hosts.
