Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We've been RVing for a few years now and have done some interesting trips. One trip was a cross country trip. We go camping in the Colorado Rockies frequently. We've gone on three long trips. Our first trip was a cross country trip from San Diego through the southern tier of states to St. Augustine, Florida. Then we toured the Pacific Northwest stopping at Redwoods Nat'l Park, Crater Lake, Olympia Nat'l Park plus the entire Oregon and Washington coastline. From there, we headed to Glacier Nat'l Park and finally Yellowstone Nat'l Park before heading home. In 2016, we took 2 1/2 months and drove to Alaska stopping in numerous places in both Canada & Alaska. It was an amazing journey. We're now planning a trip to South America.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I'm a good problem solver and somewhat of a jane of all trades.

JanJack's Pets

We have 3 dogs & a cat. Sometimes, our cat, Abby, travels with us. Our husky mix is 16 yrs old and doesn't act her age. She still acts like a much younger dog. Our other dog, Ari, was found in the desert of Arizona on our cross country trip. She's a mutt but is the greatest little dog anyone would want. We just added another little mutt found abandoned in Houston after Hurricane Harvey. Her name is Shelby & she loves to smile and howl!

Favorite Boondocking Locations

When we're traveling, we stay at Walmarts whenever it's possible. We have never encountered any problems and have found the stores to be very accommodating.

JanJack's Hometown

I was raised in Missouri but have called Colorado home since 1971. I came here to go to college and stayed!

Quite Respite on the Front Range

Sure enjoyed the hospitality and ease of our stay. As our first time, it could not have been better. Highly recommend. Was also relatively scent free, a special boon for my health. Look forward to visiting again. M&T

Quite and peaceful

We arrived around 7pm and we were greeted by Jan. They have a beautiful home and property. Despite the hot day our parking spot had been in full shade for a while and it was quite comfortable.
Water and a 15 amp extension cord were waiting for us also. The grass was wonderful and the driveway gates can close creating a great off leash area.

It was wonderful hearing about their travels and future travels.

Thank you for a great stay!

Perfect spot

Excellent host. Jan is so accommodating and the property is gorgeous. We didn’t know “the country” existed in Denver! She was happy to let us come and go, and the extension cord was right there waiting for us. Paved, circle driveway with a well landscaped yard. Our doggo was right at home too! Would definitely stay again.

Pleasant, Peaceful Stay

Host was friendly and accommodating, and the site itself was in a quiet, idyllic setting. Our dog was able to run around to her heart's content in the spacious front yard. Nothing more we could really ask for, and we highly recommend staying at this spot while you're in the Denver area!

What a Lovely Stay

This was my first opportunity to use Boondocker's Welcome and couldn't have been happier with the experience. I'd already stayed a few weeks in the Denver area but had run into time limits at the campground I was at, and of course, came down with a cold/flu as my time expired. I was over the worst, but felt I wasn't ready to get back on the road south-so the day before I had to leave I sent JanJack a message and received a reply in a couple of hours that I was welcome to spend a couple of nights with them. It was exactly what I needed. Lovely house and yard - feels like country with cows, horses and chickens all around, but it's still in the suburbs. Nice street to walk the dog and our hosts simply couldn't have been more gracious. I felt so much better after I left. Ready to face the next leg of my trip. I wish I hadn't been sick so we could have talked more as they have tons of great stories. Electric was great, flat parking, and if and when I'm back through Denver will look them up again. As we say in the south "good people". Thanks again!!!!

Super nice people!

What a perfect break on the long drive home (Utah to Ontario). Enjoyed a peaceful night and, above all, we loved meeting JanJack. Their adventures since retirement (and plans for more) would inspire anyone. They're perfect hosts and we welcome them as guests to our home any time.
