Travelling around north america with our cat

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

recently bought a travel trailer.
So the Wife, cat, and myself are travelling around the continent. Would love to hang out with some locals, or other travelers.
Just need somewhere to park our trailer!
Going to post a map with our route under my profile pictures. If youre anywhere along the route hit us up!
Basically left florida mid sept. Headed up the east coast hitting the smokeys and new england all the way to nova scotia. Then all the way across to the west coast kind of hopping back and forth between canada and the US hitting montreal, toronto, UP mi, dakotas, wyoming, calgary/banff and eventually vancouber BC. . And then all down the west coast to tijuana and then around arizona, nevada and colorado. Almost following rt 66. Finishing early january in Chicago. .

When not on the road....
currently live in Chicago. Before the road trio though we lived in florida, and im from canada.
After a few more months in chicago(for school) we would like to end up in the pacific northwest.
Im 30, wifes 28.

I caught the travelling bug in my late teens and went on a trip to Amsterdam, and Englands southern coast, and have gone on multiple international trips almost every year since.
I have loved pretty much everywhere I have gone and been to some of my favorite cities quite a few times. I would return to all of them again.
For some of my more recent trips I got engaged in Prague, then married in Jamaica, and honeymooned in Cuba.

Lived most my life in Canada and worked as a chef and had a catering company Doing weddings and dinner shows.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I was a chef for well over a decade.
Have worked in lots of hotels and restaurants and even owned my own catering company. I love learning other cultures recipes and cooking techniques. My goal is to perfect a few dishes from every region around the world.

CarlsBadWagon's Hometown

I am from Canada, just outside Toronto. My wifes from Florida. We now live in chucago, at least till august because of school, before that was clearwater florida for a few years.

Nice people, very quiet, polite, and respectful. Not much time to interact due to weather, work, and holiday activities. Contribution to electric fund was appreciated. Welcome back any time.

two night stay

We did not see each other. I was away when they asked to stay. That was no problem. When I returned home there was no sign of them having stayed on the yard.

Quiet campers

We were so busy and it was so cold we didn’t get to visit. Quiet campers, hardly knew they were here. They kindly closed our gate when they left, thank you!

Great couple

Carlsbadwagon Very nice couple friendly and enthusiastic. They were respectful of the property. They were almost never here, hopping around and exploring So Cal and Mexico. Would welcome them back any time or recommend them to any Boondockers location. Happy Travels

No time for any personal connection

They were a bit behind in their schedule so there was no time for getting acquainted. They had a flat tire to repair on the morning they left so I think they forgot to leave a donation for the power, but I doubt they used much since they were gone exploring Sacramento and Yosemite most of the time they were here.

Quick Stay

CarlsBadWagon was only here for one night - unfortunately the rain had arrived and our camp area was a bit muddy - sorry. Friendly and enjoyed talking with them and hope that they can stay when the weather is a bit more agreeable and we can spend more time talking.
