We are a middle aged couple with our kids off at college/medical school. Exploring the Americas while we are able to enjoy it. My husband is a retired IBM exec. that spent the last few years living his dream flying in airshows from Oshkosh to China. I am a CT/Radiology technologist that loves to garden, cook, and travel.
I love to bake and garden and my husband is a super handyman that built his own airplane and a large addition on his hangar. He can fix just about anything.
We own two dogs but they are at home with the kids keeping an eye on them.
We reside in Gold Hill a very small town in North Carolina,
2017 Ford f350 towing a 44ft voltage toy hauler.
We had a great time hosting Tordal13, gracious guests, polite and quiet, shacking up with some friends, they are welcome back anytime. And we can go do some backcountry flying. And hopefully cooler weather.
Unfortunately, I didn't even get the chance to meet them....I was busy until late evening and they left early in the morning... Safe travels my friends & hopefully we will meet again!! <3
We really enjoyed their visit. They are super nice people, and the Baked goods they gave us were wonderful! They are welcome to stay again whenever they are in the area.
Nice couple on their first Boondockers visit.
We especially loved the Focaccia bread they brought us on arrival.
We wish them a safe journey and would welcome them back any time.
We had a wonderful stay with Mike at Pilot's Paradise! He came out to greet us and got us hooked up with electric, water, and even were able to make a dump! It was a really nice place to let our little dog run around, and his dogs were great company, too. My partner had a lot of fun talking about aviation and adventures, Mike is truly an excellent host. Highly recommended!
The name says it well. It is paradise, perhaps especially for pilots, but for anyone who appreciates aircraft. I had a terrific time visiting with the host, and learned a lot about precision flying. Oh yeah, and the facilities were great!
Amazing host who went the extra mile with every part of our stay. Definitely a great stop!
We stayed overnight for a quick stopover and it was exactly what we needed. They have beautiful land, very secure area and graciously offered us well needed electric, water and pump out. Plus their doggies welcomed our puppies with typical doggie sniffs and kisses. Thanks for hosting!
Very welcoming host that offered us all sorts of amenities after our arrival.
Location is easy to find and straight back into their driveway.
Three friendly dog kept us company and host graciously offered his deck to relax as well to swap some stories.
Boondocking at its best.
Thank you for your hospitality.
Mike was an awesome host. He greeting us on arrival, offered his facilities and gave us a great tour of his hangar and some information about his acrobatics. But then, when I was ready to leave the next morning, I had issues with my generator. he totally jumped in and fixed it - and would not take anything for his time and effort. Well beyond what was necessary or expected. I am truly grateful!
We had a great stay, hosts are super COOL and also very friendly, and accommodating. We felt right at home.
Cute dogs were a bonus! The hookups were clean and easy to use, and the spot was perfectly straight.
Thanks for having us!
Mike was the most gracious host! not only did he offer amenities like hot tub and back deck, he showed us his incredible planes, explain his life as am acrobatic pilot, he even fixed my generator this morning. I cudnt thank him enough!!
I had a very nice visit, was most impressed with his planes and his background in flying. Amy was not available, so I did not meet her, but the 2 dogs think they found a new friend. Their place was easy to find, easy to back into and level. Highly recommended.
I was afraid I was starting off as the less than perfect guest because my arrival time kept changing due to traffic and other factors outside my control. My host, however, was perfectly understanding and put me at ease. When I arrived he welcomed me warmly, showed me around and offered me some connections (which i didn’t need but it was gracious of him to offer). We had some great conversations which were all the more appreciated because my visit was so short. And I should mention my dog had a great time with his very, very friendly dogs
We were on our maiden voyage in our brand new RV and stayed with Tordal13 for our very first night. The hosts were amazing. Not only did we schedule our stay very last minute, but we also got delayed and arrived after dark. They were beyond accomodating and incredibly understanding. Upon our arrival, they mentioned that we had total access to an indoor full bathroom if needed. They also spent so much time with us showing us the ropes of our RV. Since we had come from the frozen North, they helped us de-winterize our coach, let us dump our tanks, and even disposed of our garbage for us. Their friendliness made us feel completely at home with total strangers. They went above and beyond anything we would have expected from a host and all of this happened on New Years Eve. We enjoyed a bottle of wine together to christen our new RV and thouroughly enjoyed getting to know each other. We can not recommend these hosts enough.They have definitely set the bar high for any future hosts we stay with!
I want to say how mike went above and beyond, I can’t thank him enough. We had some things break down on our camper unexpectedly and I was able to work on them at his home. He’s a genuine person and I honestly hope someday I can extend the favor.
Traveling around the country is hard when you’re constantly on the go, this gave us a few days to relax. It’s what we needed.
My hosts were great with communication and greeting me when I arrived. After hooking up my host offered to fix my bent jack and he did. I was lucky enough to be offered laundry, shower and dump station on top of elec and water and wifi, Such nice accommodating hosts. Didn't socialize much but got in a good visit.
Our hosts were so welcoming. It honestly felt like going to stay with family. They made us feel right at home.
Our dogs got to romp around with their dogs which was also a really nice reprieve for them as travel days tend to stress them out and give them extra energy that needs to be run off.
We would love to come back again sometime and can recommend Tordal13’s place without any reservations.
Thanks so much for having us!
