Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are Gary and Rhonda. We have raised our family of five boys near Lansing, Michigan (in Laingsburg - aka "the burg"). We enjoy "quiet living" - across the street from Lake Victoria - and 3 miles from Sleepy Hollow State Park. We haven't ventured out of state yet with our vintage RV, but plan on taking some cross country trips in the near future. We plan on visiting the many microbreweries that have popped up across the nation and would like to visit as many national parks as possible. We are currently just getting things ready and only taking small short trips - ironing out the kinks and learning the ropes. So if anyone has advice - feel free.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

We have visited wine country near Traverse City and have stayed in Holland and Ludington near Lake Michigan. We have also stayed at nearby Sleepy Hollow State Park.

bella_mimi's Rig

We have a 1986 Astro Van Allegro (21 ft). The first thing I did was make a new tire cover (the original was in shreds) from remants of vinyl I had - voila! - introducing the "Peace-mobile". Needless to say there are lots of brown and orange furnishings and a retro metal "peace sign" wall art (a gift from one of our sons and his wife).

A Great Couple

We have been so fortunate this summer to have a few boondockers staying with us. And bella mimi have been added to the list of great people. It seems that time is always an issue (not enough). We enjoyed having this couple at our farm and we can hardly wait to visit them in Michigan. Great guests make great hosts!
