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.

No pets, but well behaved pets are most welcome here

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.

Fascinating host and a very charming place

We stayed two nights on this beautiful and very quiet spot.
Enjoying the crickets and a sky with a lot of stars.
The host was not only very helpful but also very interesting to talk with.
A Absolutely top spot.
Thanks a lot

Perfect hosts and an awesome location

We spent one evening at Topophilia's on our way through Wisconsin. Bob and Kay are exceedingly welcoming and we had a great time visiting with them around their goldfish (frog) pond. After a couple of long days driving, it was very refreshing to stop early and relax with new friends for a while. Their property is like staying in a well kept park. ...but we didn't see any kangaroos. The next morning, we got up early and headed into Devil's Lake State Park (only 30 minutes away) for a nice hike, before packing up and hitting the road again. Thanks!

Love of place, for sure!

For my first time boondocking, it was the best experience. The welcoming hosts are a sweet, interesting, and fun couple living in a beautiful place they are blessed to share. It was lovely to sleep to the serenade of frogs (one hitchhiking on my windshield the next morning!), see a blue heron leaving the next morning and listening to the calls and songs of a variety of birds, including the one who walked on top of the camper! I should also add the blessing of gathering from a bumper crop of rhubarb! I recommend this host site!!

Totally restful

These hosts are the definition of kindness and the location beautiful. As our first Boondocker guest experience I cannot imagine that anyplace else could compare (but I’m open-minded....)

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.
