We are both working nurses. No kids at home but we have fur babies!
Deb is quite the crafter, so if you’re here when she is off work and you’re willing...she might pull you in to a craft project. Consider yourself warned! 😂
We do have pets, two dogs, a wiener dog and a labradoodle. Our labradoodle travels with us.
Anywhere we can watch the tide!
Boise, Idaho is home for us. We have lived here for nearly 25 years. Shane was in the Navy, so we moved quite a bit before settling in Idaho. We were both raised in Washington and met there too. We like to go back often.
2018 Dodge Ram 3/4 ton and 2018 Airstream (Tommy Bahama model)
The hosts were gracious and made us feel right at home. Easy walk to a lovely coffee/brekkie place. Nice level parking area.
Our hosts were both there to get us and help us get settled. We got a bit of electrical that charged our house battery and our toothbrush!
Dscompton have an Airstream that was not at the house so we used that parking space which is a long and very level dedicated gravel driveway adjacent to the house. The otherside has a fence for privacy which also shields the view to the main road. The road noise is fairly significant but did not bother us at all.
Only a few miles from downtown allowed us to have a rare dinner out and a quick 3 mile walk on the river path.
We left in the morning and Dscompton were already at work but we were able to thank them by phone for the hospitality.
We recommend this boondockerswelcome site.
Deb was very communicative and supportive when i had questions before arrival. I met Shane and we learned that we shared a lot of history in our first careers in the military. The gravel driveway to park in was convenient and very long. More than enough room for our 33' TT and F-150. It was pretty level, too.
From their home it's a 5 minute walk to Albertsons and Fred Meyer for groceries. It's also easy access to the freeway and just a few minutes from downtown Boise. Navigating to their home was easy using Google maps.
Thank you Deb & Shane!
We were in Boise to visit friends and this spot worked out great. The hosts were so kind and helpful.
We only ended up staying here for one night as it was a little too hot in Boise for our dogs. This is a great spot, if you want to explore the city. It is backed up to a busy road but the traffic/noise dies down at night.
I’m not very good at backing my trailer so they had their brither-in-law park it for me. They also provided electricity for my cpap machine. They were very pleasant.
Deb and Shane's place was super convenient for us while we spent time with our daughter in Boise. The space is nice and shady on those hot Boise summer days and a quick 10 minutes to town. There is some road noise during the day but it calms down at night and is very quiet. Deb and Shane were very gracious hosts and we would love to stay with them again when we return to Boise. Thanks to both of you!
Really appreciated the fact that Shane offered us a 20 amp outlet so we could run a fan and charge our devices. It made the 2 night stay SO much easier! Site is adjacent to a somewhat noisy street--no problem for us. Lovely neighborhood for walking and riding our bikes. Highly recommend.
Nice parking place right in town. Busy road during the day but pretty quiet at night. Everything we wanted to do was within a 15 minute drive. Host was wonderful.
Right next to a main road with easy access and a large parking area.
We stayed with Shane and Deb for two nights June 12 & 13. They were nice and easygoing. We have 40 foot motorhome and car. We fit easily in their side driveway. They are located in a safe neighborhood with easy access to Boise and the surrounding area. During our stay there we had it up to some natural Hot Springs in the mountains. They were very helpful with providing us information of where we should go. We truly appreciate our stay with Shane and Deb and if we come back to the area, we would definitely request to stay again.
What a great spot! We parked in an extra driveway on the garage side of the house. Partially shaded and felt like our own little oasis in the side yard. Close to Boise, and easy access to I-84–great spot for sightseeing.
Our host were cheerful, free with information, and very helpful. We had a problem with our fridge while we were there and they assisted so. We didn’t have to trash all of our food. THANKS GUYS!
Only negative is that you are backed up to a busy commuter road-rather noisy. But trust me the positives outweigh that small inconvenience 👍!! Would definitely stop here again.
