We, Rose Ann and I have been camping, mostly in tent trailers since we were married over 30 years ago. For last few years we tried several options in anticipation of longer journeys in the future. We have finally settled on a 17’ Casita fiberglass egg trailer. It is lightweight, easy to tow and is well constructed. We tow with a 2011 Toyota Sienna minivan modified by Can Am for better towing.
We love to travel but are frustrated with the lack of affordable options for camping in Ontario. We retired June 30 2017 and have been travelling ever since. We found Boondockers Welcome a valuable tool for us and we are hooked on Boondocking.
We are self reliant and with our solar panel are pretty self sufficient.
I recently got my advanced HAM radio license (VA3LHX) and look forward to learning more about it as we travel.
I love to cook both indoors and out. Have recently gone back to cooking with charcoal while camping. I am fairly mechanical and have a background in electronics. I have been playing with solar panels and chargers for several years and love doing mods on my rv's. Rose Ann is an avid gardener and loves to take the photographs on our trips.
We have Abbey, a seven year old Bichon and King Charles Spaniel mix. She loves to travel and loves all people, especially children and is great with other dogs and cats.
We have so many Boondocking locations that we love. Beside a pier, a lighthouse and a garden in Port Medway, Nova Scotia is one of our favourites. We also loved the Texas coast and Deep South Texas.
After swapping rigs too many times in the last 10 years we finally decided to try an “Egg”. In late 2019 we found a 2003 Casita Liberty Deluxe in very good condition. Although the same length as our Livin Lite,it is much lower and more areodynamic so we get much better milage towing with our 2011 Toyota Sienna. It was setup by Andy Thompson of Cam Am RV and tows amazingly. We are fully self contained with 250 watts of solar and a Honda EI 2000 U for backup.
Had the opportunity to host Larry and Rose Ann. We had a few interesting conversations. I wish I had spent more time talking with them but it was a very busy weekend for us. They are welcome back anytime and hopefully we see them at some point.
These guys and abby(? Spelling ?) were delightful to host. Helpful, kind, friendly towards the animals and just a joy to talk to! You guys can come back anytime! safe travels friends, see you down the road!
So glad to have been able to share our host location with these folks.
Great time around the fire and they really appreciated the spot.
They are welcome here any time.
We had a lot to share and learn from them. Which is why we like hosting boondockers. And they make good bread.
What a nice couple very much enjoyed hosting them. Abby their sag is very cute and is very obedient. Rise Ann is a master Gardner so enjoyed sharing our love of flowers. Hope they can vitit again in the future. Wishing them happy travels.
Super couple visited on a rainy day and had a wonderful stopover. Their compact Road trek van was located on a level site that overlooked our peonies garden. Recommend them to all hosts.
Larry and Rose Ann are delightful people and very respectful. They are completely self contained and we enjoyed havkng them. They are welcome any time.
Larry & Rose Ann were escaping the cold in Canada, but we were just as cold in Ohio! They arrived after a long drive in crummy weather, and settled for the night. Off early seeking warmer temperatures (or at least above freezing)! Wish we were headed that way too. Fine guests - welcome anytime!
We were honored to host Larry and Rose Ann on their anniversary weekend. They had spent their honeymoon, 30 years ago, at the Elora Mill. With the mill currently closed for reconstruction, boondocking with us was the next best thing -at least we hope it was! Nights were cool (below freezing) but that was not a problem for these experienced winter-campers. We thoroughly enjoyed our time together, had some great visits, and we welcome them back any time.
