We, Rose Ann and I have been camping, mostly in tent trailers since we were married 30 years ago. For last few years we have tried several options in anticipation of retiring in mid 2017. We had 2003 Wesfalia Weekender but found it a little to cramped. About this time is was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes so the ability to pull over and prepare a healthy lunch was essential. We looked at all the lightweight options and finally ended up purchasing a 2014 Airstream Bambi 16'. The next year we upgraded to a 2014 Airstream Bambi 22. We loved both the Airstreams but in the end sold the 22 as well and purchased a 2017 Livin Lite 14 DBS. We loved this trailer but found it expensive to travel with given the rising cost of gas and with our love of Boondocking we wanted something smaller. We have been looking at Roadtreks for many years and now we have a Roadtrek 190 Versatile.
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.

Skills & Expertise to Share

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.

Larry and Rose Ann's Pets

We have Abbey, a five 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.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

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.

Super Guests

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.

Nice folks on a cold winter night!

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!

Happy Anniversary!

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.
