Novice RVers with "Boondocking" in our blood!

Expired Guest

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

My wife, Sue, and I are retired, and took early SS in 2012. My wife is a former RN with a multitude of practical and artsy interests. She loves the dog and cat, landscaping, interior decorating, horses, art, photography, "controlled shopping", cooking, sewing, wines, movies, the St Louis Cardinals and, of course, traveling. I'm an Army retiree with 23 years of service. My interests are Sue, family (includes the dog), traveling, golf, reading, the St. Louis Cardinals, "Mizzou" Tigers, my fraternity, Theta Chi and movies (mostly the popcorn). I, occasionally, participate in Sue's interest's because she does.

Through the use of "Boondockers Welcome" and some other travel clubs reviewed and recommended by these"frugal" people, we hope to get the most out of our future RVing experiences.

Skills & Expertise to Share

As described above, Sue has a variety of skills worth sharing. I would say I complement the list of skills she offers. I am handy but no expert in anything.

slyltc's Pets

Yes. a shelter dog of mixed breed. "Stella" is mostly an Andulasian sheep dog. She weighs about sixty lbs. and is a great watchdog. The only time she barks is when someone she doesn't know comes around, As soon as she has checked someone out she then seeks their affection. She's great with children. Unfortunately she has hip dysplasia in both hips and her rear knees slip out of joint. We just have to remind her she's six years old and not a young pup anymore.

Very friendly, professional with great stories about his life in the service.

We hosted Steve and his dog Stella for 2 separate nights. He called an hour ahead of arriving, arrived on time and was very friendly. We invited him to an evening out with our camping friends. He fit in perfectly! We would recommend hosting this new boondocker anytime you get the request to do so.

Hope to see you again

Great hosts!

We just left Steve and Sue’s place and had such a great visit. We could of talked to them all day! They were so hospitable, inviting us in and having coffee and delicious muffins this morning. We are hoping we are able to meet them again some day. Truly enjoyed our visit!
