If We Could Choose "Double Positive", We Would

They were our first boondocker guests and now our first second timers. They are family now. Feel like we've know them forever. We got to visit and share dinner twice. We have grown to love these folks in the short time we've known them. I know know we will see them again, either in Indiana or Mississippi. Maybe even at another boondocker location. These folks are the perfect example of why we love hosting.

Nice guests

Due to covid, we weren't able to interact with these guests as we normally would, but enjoyed having them anyway. They were great with communication, appreciative, and welcome back at anytime!

What A Delight To Host These Guests!

We are so happy we had the opportunity to host these Boondockers Welcome guests. We feel very blessed they chose to come to Candy Cane Corral. We now have more new friends and look forward to many return visits. We wish them Godspeed and safe travels as they continue to follow their dreams.

Great guests!

Friendly and self sufficient couple. No trouble at all and left the spot like they found it. We enjoyed visiting with them while giving them a quick tour of the farm and animals. They are welcome back and recommend to other hosts.

Easygoing fulltimers

It was so easy to host this couple! We knew they would be arriving when we were away, and they followed my Parking directions perfectly. We all enjoyed sharing stories about composting and beer. What’s not to like about those two topics? We look forward to staying in touch, and having them visit again.

Awesome couple. Really enjoyed their visit. Hope to meet up again sometime, somewhere.

Another proud veteran

I like to chat with our Veterans since I am one as well. They always have fun stories. Please help them out when you can. We were not able to spend time together other than a few monutes when they arrived.They were very good about messaging ETA s and we happy when folks do that because we do like to know when folks are at our property.
Stop back if you're in the area.

From guests to friends

Really enjoyed having A and J as guests. We had nice walks and talks. Just a little jealous, they are enjoying the freedom of full time life on the road. We will be glad to have them back any time.


April 2020

Nice couple

We only got to visit for a very short time. I know they had to be tired from traveling. They seemed very friendly. They only stayed over night, but I never know they were really there unless we looked out the door. Safe travels.

Our First Guests - Gonna be hard to be better guests than ajbowman

We had a wonderful time visiting with ajbowman and their granddaughter. Beautiful weather Saturday and got to tour the farm and get to know each other. Since they are experienced boon dockers they were able to share a lot of good information with us. We are now really excited and anxious to begin our boondocking experience.

We hope to see these folks again soon.

great guest

Got a few minutes with these folks and wish I could have spent more time talking RVing or just about anything, so nice and kind. Hope to see them again when we hit the road. Always welcome guest!


March 2020


Enjoyed their conversations and time here. Very quite couple. WELCOME BACK ANYTIME.


December 2019

Can only hope they will try again...

Sadly, between their reasons for being in the area and our commitments to church and such, we had no time for a visit. So, I'm gonna look forward to these folks returning for another try!

Great sound...Unless I looked out the window, I would never have known they were here!!!

Wonderful Couple

Great fellowship and good times with ajbowman while sitting around the fire. What a delight it was getting to know this wonderful couple. Our wish was for them to stay longer.

They are extremely courteous, thoughtful and very respectful. We are hoping that we will get a chance to see them again someday. In the meantime we will be looking for you all out there on the highways and byways. They are welcome back here any time, and we highly recommend them.

Wonderful guest

We really enjoyed A & J's visit and looking forward to their return. They arrived when we had nice weather and they were able to enjoy the river view. We had fun playing games and socializing .
Yes we have developed another great Boondockerswelcome friendship.
Safe travels to you on your journeys.

My first guest

They were great guest hardly knew they were here. We had a very good visit and found we had a lot in common. They gave me a loaf of bread they baked and it was fantastic. I wish them well on their travels and hope they come back. Highly recommended.

Wonderful couple

Though we did not get much time together as they stayed during the work week and they took day trips we had great conversations and it was a pleasure hosting them.

The long dirt road

We are fortunate to have met and hosted this wonderful couple. Due to the much needed rain they brought with their arrival we didn’t get to visit as much as we would have liked. We look forward to a return visit in the near future if your in our area. Safe travels and avoid long dirt roads.


October 2019

Come back anytime!

Ajbowman’s stay was cut short by mechanical issues. We hope they come back someday to enjoy what southern New England has to offer! Wishing them safe and trouble free travels.

Great to meet, and share a campfire. Would have liked them to stay a extra day and share the area.
Privileged to be their first BW spot.
