We are a youngish (late-40's) couple retired from the Marine Corps and now, more or less, permanently located in Eastern North Carolina (near Camp Lejeune Marine Corps Base). We both work full time, but enjoy traveling on vacation.
We have one Grandchild and decided to purchase an RV so we could make the 18+ hour drive to upstate New York more often, taking the comfort of home with us.
Due to our military travels, we have family and friends in almost every other state, and hope to begin using our RV as our main source of travel.
We are sort of new to the ins and outs of travel by RV and appreciate any and all tips, cautions, or other information.
We are animal lovers and have pet cats, dogs, pygmy goats and chickens.
We welcome pets, but... our older dog is not great with other dogs, so a little bit of coordination and scheduling of yard time is a good idea.
Our younger dog is sight impaired, so also is a bit nervous with new dogs.
They both love people and are good with 🐈 🐓 and 🐐...😁
Travel plans include Massachusetts, upstate New York, Colorado and will expand from there... We are fairly new, so don't have a lot of experience, but are very willing to offer up our yard as a boondocking site... We have plenty of room, a 16 foot gate, into our yard, access to electricity and water, and friendly pets, including dogs, cats and pygmy goats.
Our ‘home towns’ are San Francisco, CA and Springfield, MA Home now is Richlands, NC

Nana and Papa G treated me like family. They have a very nice place to camp and relax. I really enjoyed my stay with them and I highly recommend them for a stay.
We enjoyed hearing about their volunteer activities. The time we spent talking with them was the best part of our stay. The site was level and the neighborhood was quiet. A great place to spend some time.
We had a great time visiting with Nana & Papa for 2 nights. Very pleasant and welcoming, it was a pleasure to meet them both and all their pets too. The street is a quiet dead end and where everyone watches out for each other. The dogs are friendly and well behaved with visitors.
I stayed with Nana and Papa G back in March, although I am just writing up this recommendation four months later. Nana and Papa were wonderful hosts. Being a solo traveler, I spend far too much time alone, so I welcomed their invitation to visit with them in their home after I set up and settled in. They made me feel very welcome and comfortable and we had a wonderful evening together. If I am ever in their area again, I will definitely look them up.
Nana & Papa were such great hosts. They treated us like family and did everything possible to make us feel at home. They included us in activities that they did and Papa took us on a tour of his work place. We had such a great time and hope that we will be friends for many years to come. It is not possible to thank them enough for everything they did for us. We would be more than happy to be able to go there again and spend time with them and hope that they will visit us sometime soon. We would recommend them as hosts to anyone.
