My name is Anita and retired 14 years ago from working with young behaviour problem teens in an assessment centre. Loved my work along with being a dog trainer in my off hours and dealing with dog beh. problems. For the past 14 years I have boarded dogs, especially medically fragile dogs when people needed a getaway.
Now it is my turn and with my best friend Spencer my Shepherd (no. 5 in a row) we are off to see the country. My business called HOME AWAY FROM HOME was a wonderful busy life living with different dogs each day or week and taking anywhere from 8 to 12 dogs hiking daily in the woods and with Spencer always there to be the leader and demonstrate such patience.
I am blessed to have very good friends whom have made RVing a full time career for the past 6 years and have been the incentive to go forward with this great adventure. My goal this summer is to cross Canada and meet up with them in BC.
Being a real novice they suggested I join Boondockers for safety travelling alone. Having visited them several times in various RV stops I have been amazed at the bond and helpfullness of others in this community and very much looking forward to sharing experiences with those along the way. Any help offered will be greatly appreciated.
No RV skills but if you have a behaviour dog problem I might have a few suggestions.
Beginning of August we will start our journey staying for the first stop hopefully at Snuffy's Tree Farm near Flint Michigan. Came well recommended by my friends having stayed there themselves several times.
Just purchased a 31 ft Chateau with one slideout. It is a 2006 and just turned 6,000 miles on it and in mint condition. Her new name is NELLIE BELLE Anyone old enough to remembers Roy Rogers and Dale Evens might remember Roy's jeep was named the same. When I was 8 I had my first old bike and named it Nellie Belle and would take off for hours exploring and dreaming of being a big girl and traveling where ever I wanted to go. So here I am finally going to do it, so fittingly my new Home Away From Home couldn't have a better name.
