I am self-employed (digital marketing) and my husband is a stay-at-home-dad. We're on an indefinite road trip with our 4 daughters and our pup!
We hope to see all 48 contiguous states and look forward to experiencing new places, meeting new people, and introducing our kids to history and geography beyond textbooks!

We have a pit bull named Penny who was born in Feb 2020. We adopted when she was 8 weeks old, and we've been very intentional about socializing her with other people and other friendly/socialized dogs.
As of March 2021, Penny is one-year-old and 70 lbs (puppy energy in a dog body).
We call her a "love tank" because she loves to give kisses, in a big way.
She's such a good girl and is good with kids (we have 4) and loves playing with other dogs.
When we're not inside the RV, we keep Penny on her leash, a lead attached to the RV, and/or within a fenced "pen" we travel with (depending on where we are) - and of course we always clean up after her.
She is not a big barker, but she will speak up if she wants attention from you or another dog, or if she gets spooked.
We always look for pet friendly sites, and certainly do not want to make anyone uncomfortable by having a big dog on their property.
That being said, if you love wide goofy dog grins and slobbery doggie kisses, you're going to love Penny!
We've enjoyed many of the Boondocking experiences from this website - from Florida to California and Mississippi up through New Hampshire!
We're originally from Rochester, NY - but had been living in Phoenix, AZ for 3 1/2 years before launching on our full-time RV'ing adventures in July 2019.

my wife meet them and mention they were very nice family. Left the homestead very clean. welcome back anytime for a visit.
Happy and safe trials
Didn't have much chance to visit. Nice family on a big adventure.
I just found that I could leave refs for those who camped! Imagine!
Well, if I remember correctly, we have not had any real scoundrels stay at our place. So, I don't remember them starting any fires, etc. So I'm guessing they are pleasant, conscientious, happy campers like us all! Come back anytime!
Polite and easygoing family! 4 girls delightful and dog sweet and quiet! Welcome back anytime!
Nice family of adventurers! Quiet guests, respectful of us and our neighborhood. Well behaved dog and sweet kids.
Family was quiet and well taken care of. Glad they enjoyed their stay here. No problems but wish we could have visited more.
THEBRUNSONS returned to SPAGHETTI'S ROOST and were just as pleasant the second time around. As a family, they are a joy to host and absolutely self-sufficient. Great communicators, considerate to their hosts and respectful of our property, they are welcome anytime! We wish them the best of luck in their future travels. Becky & George
We had the pleasure of hosting this family for a three night stay and thoroughly enjoyed having them. Especially enjoyable was their four daughters, we loved watching them play, they were very kind and respectful. Our grand-daughter who was visiting us one day had a great time with them. I would also be remiss if I didn’t comment that their dog was very lovable and extremely well managed. It would be an honor to host them again should their travels bring them back in our direction.
Quiet, courteous, and conscientious but fun to talk to. Very self-sufficient. Penny (The LOVE TANK) is a sweetheart of a turbo-charged four-wheel drive pup but was NEVER a problem for us! This was the longest conventional trailer I've had back into my driveway and she did it like a pro. They are a well-oiled machine for set up and tear down. Welcome back anytime.
TheBrunsons were wonderful guests. It was a pleasure meeting them all. The kids were polite, playful and respectful. Penny they’re 4 legged fur baby was lovable and playful. I had a good time playing ball with her in the yard. They are welcome back anytime. Safe Travels.
Very quiet and considerate totally enjoyed hosting this family and they are welcome back anytime.
This family is wonderfully accommodating. They graciously helped with property chores and asked if there was anything they could do to help. We rarely heard them on our property. It was the prefect balance of privacy and communication as needed. Definitely a great family to host and we wouldn't mind having them back anytime!
It was great to host the Brunsons family and see the kids enjoy the swing set and trampoline.
Great guests! We enjoyed spending an evening by the fire chatting about life. Would love to have them back anytime!
This was a very close family that stuck to themselves. Friendly yes but stayed together the whole time.
We were not able to spend much time with them, but they seemed very pleasant and respectful.
THEBRUNSONS have been a pleasure to HOST at SPAGHETTI'S ROOST. As my wife, Becky, and I sit out on the porch enjoying our late morning coffee, the young girls would come over with their dog, Penny, and tell us all about the day that they have planned. Fearing that they were bothering us, the parents would show up to shoe them off, only to be reassured by us that, at our ages, it was enjoyable to hear young, excited voices around the place. They have been most respectful of our privacy, our property, and are most welcome to return anytime! Becky & George
We were able to host the Brunson family from the middle of March until July! It was a great situation where we were able to provide a RV spot for them while they waited out the pandemic shutdowns. They were very helpful with putting out the trash weekly, cleaning up weeds, and picking up after their adorable and friendly dog. We really enjoyed having them here on the property. I often times forgot they were next to the house they were so quiet. I would not hesitate to recommend hosting them and welcome them to come back when it is cooler here in Arizona.
Nice couple with the quietest kids I've never heard . they are welcome back any time
We got them settled and they were happy to do their own thing while we did ours. We appreciate their flexibility and understanding. Would host again.
It was nice to host the Brunsons. The children were respectful and I enjoyed doing a craft project with them.
Really enjoyed this beauty family. They were courteous and quiet... hardly remembered the were there.

Great family, wonderful couple with great children. Welcome back anytime.
TheBrunsons have all of their ducks in a row! They work together to make their big adventure possible.We are happy to have hosted them and they are welcome here if the path leads them back this way.
had this family here for Xmas eve dinner... the young kids made it special, we were so glad to share with them... quiet, respectful... a delightful family..
Wonderful family. Loved watching the kids running around and enjoying the yard.
TheBrunsons were super great! The girls were very well behaved and were so quiet I almost forgot there were four children. Enjoyed conversation and coffee and so glad they got to explore the beaches here, they really are fantastic. Always welcomed guests. Thanks,
We loved having them--again! The kids are great--they love our animals. Can't wait to see them again.
nice family didn't see much of them but very quiet and respectful, welcome back anytime
It was a pleasure to host this boondocking family. Their daughters were very well behaved and interacted nicely with our boys. We are glad they were able to take advantage of our Central Florida location to explore the area with their kids. So wonderful and inspiring to see a family on such a learning adventure with their kids. They're welcomed back anytime!
Enjoyed our short visit with this nice family.
Would gladly welcome this family back again.
Well behaved children, you might not even know they were there if you didn't see them.
We enjoyed hosting our first guests. Their four children were very quiet and well behaved.
Their one night stay was very pleasant and wished their stay had been longer for more time to get to know each other better. Especially when I learned she had written and published a children’s book.
What an incredible family! It was a lot of fun hosting them. The kids were delightful and extremely well mannered. It was a nice change having a young family here. The laughter and squeals from the girls playing was constantly bringing a smile.
TheBrunsons were polite, conscientious, and thoughtful. They let us know what time to expect them and then they provided updates along the way.
TheBrunsons are welcome back anytime
Very nice family..you will enjoy them also. 4 sweet girls, they gave our lively dog a good workout! We hope they come back sometime, & we wish them safe travels
Traveling with 4 children, these Guys are brave enjoyed the short time we got to visit-- they are welcome back any time
At least the weather was quite cool while the Brunsens were here (30 degrees below normal). Very considerate guest and were grateful for the spot. Would welcome back at any time.
Going by the 30 minutes we did talk to them they seemed like a very nice family and we are sure we would have enjoyed their company. Unfortunately colds and bad weather kept them inside during their time here and they only emerged when it was time to leave. This was the quietest visit we have ever had. We would not mind hosting them again if they are ever back in this area again.
Our girls enjoyed spending time playing with their kids. They’re welcome back anytime!
OMG! There just wasn't enough time. I had company when our guests came so I was busy but, we enjoy the short time we had. It was so great to hear children playing in the yard and the dog was so happy to have someone to play with. We look forward to a return trip from this wonderful family!
Nice polite family with a camper full of nice young girls. The kids really enjoyed the yard, swng, and kitties. The parents were really nice to talk to and told us about their journeys. Eveything went really well - we just wish we were able to see them before they left to get them to sign our guest book!
Very nice family, called to update us on their arrival time. The children were polite and enjoyed seeing the animals on our farm. Would host them again.
We enjoyed having TheBrunsons stay with us! They are welcome back anytime! Wishing them happy trails!
We don't often have families stay with us, So glad this family requested a stay. The kids were awesome and well
mannered. It was a delight to have some kids enjoying the outdoors and the campfire. Welcome back anytime.
Safe travels to you folks.
It was a pleasure to meet and host this traveling family. I pray that they have no more issues on their USA adventure! Stay safe
Wonderful young family living the dream. The kids had a great time exploring around the pond. Welcome back anytime.
The Brunsons are a lovely family -- lots of positive energy. The children enjoyed running in the yard and were a delight to meet and interact with. It was a delight to hear of their adventures on the road. They are welcome back any time.
They were great guests, kids had fun on the play set, and large chess set. they spent a fair amount of time visiting DC. Would host again. Good luck on the rest of the journey.
We enjoyed hosting this great family. We were always greeted with smiles and laughter. It was wonderful seeing the children enjoy the playground we have for our grandchildren. So happy when they accepted our invite to stay longer.
These folks were so quiet we didn't know they were here! Nice, well behaved kids, a dog that's very calm, and adults that like to talk, but not too much.
This family is welcome back any time.
We had a really great time hosting this family. We barely heard a peep from them during their stay, and they were really warm and welcoming when we spoke to them. Our neighbor has even mentioned to us how great it was to meet and talk with them and their kids! We wish them luck and safe travels in their awesome journey, and would definitely welcome them back any time they're in the area.
Glad to have you. Hope you don't run into more problems. Safe travels.
It was a short visit. A few mechanical issues, which are always good learning experiences for us. The kids were extremely good, they liked our dogs and the dogs were almost overcome with attention and belly rubs. They took a LONG nap after good bys and Mattie (Matilda) still goes out looking for the camper to see if they are coming back. So, we would look forward to a return visit, especially when you have more time to explore STL. And to hear of your further ventures in RVing.
