Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are living our dream of traveling together around this incredibly magnificent country. We have owned a C class, A class and now a B Camper Van. We have traveled to the pacific Northwest, Southwest, points in between, the entire east coast, and parts of eastern and western Canada. One of the unexpected perks of traveling has been meeting new people and making new friends from the RV community. We enjoy learning about others' experiences and sharing our own. Charles is a retired Director of Engineering for a large company and Carol is a retired school teacher. We live on 17 acres of Charles' family's "Old Home Place."

Skills & Expertise to Share

Carol is a Certified Essential Oils Coach. She makes a variety of specialized essential oil blends which smell fantastic and are beneficial to your well being. She also speaks Spanish fluently and muddles through in French :-)

TheOldPlace's Pets

We have 3 cats but they stay home when we travel.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

We have found beautiful locations to boondock in almost every state where we have traveled and hope to discover more.

TheOldPlace's Hometown

We live in a small community called Mountain Park, NC located 15 miles from Stone Mountain State Park, NC and 16 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway at mile marker 229.

New Friends at The Old Place

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with these warm and generous hosts. The Old Place is located on some beautiful farmland, and is quiet and convenient. We highly recommend a visit with this lovely couple, and hope to see them again — thanks so much for the hospitality!
