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.
Wonderful couple. We had great visits and hope they return to London soon. So glad they were able to attend church with us on Sunday! Safe travels my friends.
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.
They were there to greet me and guide me in. We sat on their patio and had great conversations together including our love for our Lord. God's love shines through them. They make you feel at home.
Completely boondocked for the first time on The Lower 40. Ground was level and dry. Some street noise until around midnight, then quiet with tons of stars to be seen. Host graciously shared fresh garden tomatoes and well wishes for my sick family member. Appreciate the kind words. It is always nice to have a safe place to stay. Would recommend!
Our experience at the Lower 40 was indescribable! A true blessing to us and these hosts would be a blessing to anyone who stops through. We had amazing fellowship around the campfire.
The description is 100% accurate. The site is relatively level. It was a tight turn with a 30ft travel trailer, but once on the property, there’s plenty of open space. We look forward to returning and connecting with these amazing people soon!
I had a great level place to park in the lower 40! My hosts were most gracious and met me when I go there to show me where to park. They also invited me to visit on their porch but I was beat and had to decline. Maybe next time!!
BW’d from Rhode Island to Florida and back. Although the amenities were few, the hospitality was the best we experienced our whole trip. The RV site was perfect and easy to get in and out. We were far enough away from neighbors that they could never hear our generator.
The most gracious hosts you can imagine! Enjoyed our stay in their yard and exploring the sights in northeast Tennessee. May God bless them as they bless others.
Friendly hosts and beautiful countryside made for an enjoyable stay. Would live to stay here again.
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.
