Do you know or have you hosted this user?

My wife Shelley keeps herself busy through being a Rotarian and volunteering with a number of other organizations. Myself, I am now retired but will be working on the "Honey Do" list for the near future. Our kids are out on their own so there is just the two of us around here. We like to go camping, quading, jet boating and relaxing in the local area during the summer months. In a previous life I was a Navy Communications Technician but retired from that in 1998 which resulted in our move to Alberta.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Good with computers and electronics, licensed ham radio operator (VE6DDD). Can do some mechanical repairs and have a good selection of tools in the garage.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Any place warm in the winter. The local areas known as the "West Country" provide summer time boondocking, ATV'ing and all sorts of outdoor adventures within 1/2 hour of home. Travelled the Baja in January 2014 and loved it. We enjoyed trips to the Yukon in 2015 and 2016 jetboating from Whitehorse to Dawson City. (boat boondocking??)

Peaceful stay

Thanks Joedog, for coming out in the rain to welcome and and to show us where to park. It was an excellent spot and the location was peaceful and quiet. Hope we can come back when it's dry and sit at that great looking campfire!! P.S. Did your new kitchen counter arrive safely??

Quiet night

Nice spot in the country for quiet nights sleep. Stayed 1 night, had another place to be the next day. Wished we could have stayed longer. Hosts were very helpful and friendly.

Friendly and very interesting

These hosts were very welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed spending time with them. We learned so much from them about the current situation in Alberta. They recommended that we see Lacombe and we spent a delightful day there. These hosts have led very interesting lives and we were delighted to have them share some of their experiences with us.

Great boondocking location!

joedog provided a lovely, level and grassy site for our one night stay. We really enjoyed meeting this friendly, fun couple and swapping travel stories. Would definitely stay here again.
