We have just bought our first travel trailer. Our intent is to do some traveling around the country as often as possible but we will not be going full time. We are both in our late 60's and are retired. We are Christians and do not smoke, drink, do drugs or party. Bill has an auto-harp and we like to sit around a camp fire and sing gospel songs. Bill graduated with an MBA Rensselaer Poly Tech and retired from Pratt & Whitney in East Hartford, CT. Cheryl was a program coordinator with the Community Renewal Team in Hartford, CT. We have three adult children and three grandchildren. We are usually busy Saturday mornings until mid afternoon.
Bill is handy with most anything except vehicles. He doesn't like tinkering with engines, etc. He is good at building things. Bill is an ordained minister and occasionally preaches. Both Bill and Cheryl are students of the Bible and enjoy sharing our understanding with others. Cheryl likes to make homemade bread.
We have a friendly 5 1/2 pound Chihuahua. She is house trained and only barks when strangers enter our home. She has never bitten anyone. Her name is Bouncie.
So far we have only boondocked in two locations. We were planning to do more traveling but health issues and Covid-19 has put a crimp in our plans. We look forward to traveling in 2021..
"We have recently moved to Mohawk, Tennessee. We are within a little over 1 hour from attractions in Pigeon Forge, about 1 hour from Johnson City and 30 minutes from Greeneville, and Morristown, TN. Knoxville is about 1 hour away. We have a double wide manufactured home on 1 1/3 acres of property on a country road. The front of the property will be used to park guests. There is a small "mom and pop" store abut 1/2 mile down the road and a convenience store with gas about 4 miles away. For grocery shopping, there is a "Food Country" about 15 or 20 minutes from us. Other shopping and restaurants can be found about 30 minutes away.
We have a 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan RT and will be towing an 18' self-contained travel trailer. We will NOT be towing anything else.
Nothing short of a God send. We were honored to be their first Boondockers Welcome host. Not detracting from our other wonderful guests but sitting on our veranda listening to Bill play the autoharp and us all softly singing Gospel was an inspiring experience. Sincerely, thank you wafcaf27 and Boondockers Welcome for sending them our way.
wafcaf27 provided a wonderfully level spot for us to park our rig. Upon our arrival we were welcomed with smiling faces and we had a wonderful visit around the campfire in the backyard. Unfortunately the weather was horrible almost the entire time we were there but there was still a few things we found to do in nearby Greenville. The only downside we saw to this location was that is on a very narrow side road and the driveway entrance was a bit narrow. Between those two things, rigs larger than ours (PU & 21’ travel trailer) may find it difficult to swing into their driveway. Thanks so much for allowing us the pleasure of staying at your place.
