I am a "retired procrastinator" enjoying "the good life"

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Currently retired and expecting to stay that way. I love to travel, seeing new and old places mostly by RV. I am not opposed to paying for camping, but I find that the best things in life, as they say, are free. I can't imagine having a "campsite" in a crowded RV park and calling that camping. There is just too much of nature to enjoy.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Like most RVers, I am good at fixing things, and that is my hobby too! If you are here and have a problem, I am only too willing to lend a hand.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Anywhere with a great view and the less people the better. I am not antisocial, but rather I find the best places are not crowded. The desert Southwest to the Top of the World highway, North America provides countless boondocking opportunities.

Awesome Hosts

We had a great stay and the Hosts are such nice people.

We stayed two nights which gave us time to do some exploring. We rode bicycles on the Sauk City multi-use trails and then rode the friendly streets. Next, we found information about Ferry Bluff. We had a spectacularly clear day, so the view was great.

We enjoyed talking about solar, Sprinter RVs, and the hosts are patient tutors about their forest birds. And during the golden hour, deer grazed in the field behind our motorhome.

Thank you for being part of the BW network.

Wonderful experience!

We stayed here on our way north and had a wonderful experience! We visited with them and they were so helpful, giving us advice regarding places to visit while we are traveling, also found out they are fellow birders! The place is beautiful and they could not have been kinder or more generous. I hope we meet again, maybe at Hawk Ridge!

Wonderful Hosts - Great Location

we stayed with Topophilia for two nights on their property in a beautiful natural setting. This is a great location close to Madison, Devil's Lake State Park, The International Crane Institute and we can't forget the Mustard Museum. ;-)
Our hosts were exceptional. We thoroughly enjoyed chatting with them about hiking, travel and kayaking. They are a wealth of information. We hope our paths cross again.

Beautiful people, beautiful place

Hosts were so welcoming and helpful. We enjoyed our chats and appreciated all the tips and insights from an 'old-timer' to us 'newbies'. Thanks for not laughing at us (out loud, anyway). The property is gorgeous, fairly level, easy to get to and with beautiful views. We definitely recommend them as hosts and guests.
