Travelling around north america with our cat

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We bought a travel trailer last summer.
So the cat, wife, and myself are travelling around the north america as much as possible while we can. We were on the road sept2019- january 2020. We were in Chicago since then while my wife finished her degree.
Now that she is done we plan on doing another few months on the road before "moving" to oregon.
Would love to meet some locals, and hang out with other travelers.
We Just need somewhere to park our trailer!

Current trip:
we just picked up our trailer after having some warranty work done around christmas time in indiana. Headed to the southwest. Spending a few weeks in Arizona and surrounding states with some friends.
and then taking a few weeks down the baja peninsula and back. After which, around mid march, we will (very slowly) be making out way towards oregon.

The last trip:
We basically left florida mid sept/2019. Headed up the east coast hitting the smokeys, A.C., new england all the way to nova scotia. Then we headed west, kind of hopping back and forth along the US/CAN border untill we got to vancouver. Then all down the west coast untill tijuana. and then across arizona, nevada utah, and colorado. Almost following rt 66. Finished that trip early jan/2020 in Chicago.

About us:
I caught the travelling bug in my late teens when i went on a few month long trip to Amsterdam, and Englands southern coast. I 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, operating a catering company specializing in weddings and dinner&comedy shows. Now I work in finance.
My wife just graduated with her second Masters, and has worked in a variety of social work roles, and is in the process of starting her own agency in the northwest.

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. I am happy to teach/share recipes and cooking techniques.

CarlsBadWagon's Pets

We have one cat, she is super friendly and will try to climb in your lap. we have no problem keeping her inside the camper while staying places.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

We have had so many great ones its hard to choose a favorite.
Some of the beaches we found along the oregon and northern cali coast were my favorite.
We boondocked on some cliffs outside the badlands. So many great spots in the dessert.

CarlsBadWagon's Hometown

We were in chicago for the past year. Before the last road trip we lived in florida for a few years, where my wife is from, and im from Ontario, Canada before that. Hoping to end up in the PNW/Oregon long term.

Look for this name!

If CarlsBadWagon request a stay with you....accept their request! We truly enjoyed their stay with us here in La Paz. They are adventurous and not afraid to explore your area. We also learned of a great geothermal heated pool beach area that we didn’t know about before. Also he is a trained chef and shared some great food. Will see you at our Canopy Grove in Oregon.

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


December 2019

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.


December 2019
