Wonderful people!

We enjoyed staying one night at shangrilew's home, which is very close from highway 401. They were very generous and patient with us in sharing their tremandous experience in Boondocking. We wish to see them again.

Pleasant stay with the ultimate boondockers

Very pleasant evening and conversation with hosts, who shared fascinating tales of their wide ranging boondocking and marine experience.
We learned a lot, then enjoyed a peaceful night in Kingston.
Very glad to recommend Shangrilew as either host or guest.
