Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I was originally a Electrician, but after many years of construction I went back to school to get my Engineering Certificate. I worked for the Dept. of National Defense for 34 years first as an Electrical Engineer, working my way up to the department manager. My wife and I were avid boaters for many years travelling in Georgian Bay mainly, but sold our boat beginning of 2019 to start travelling in our 21 foot Chinook motor home. We enjoy boondocking as it is very close to the way we traveled in our boat, and are always looking for locations to boondock for a few days at a time. We enjoy talking to people who have been RVing to see where they have been and where they are traveling to. We like the warm weather so will be heading south for part of the winter hoping to meet great people as we boondock our way. In 2020 we upgraded to our new two us 2008 29 ft Holiday Rambler Atlantis Class C, which we love.

Phenomenal host and place to stay!

Nice rural location to stay. Big backyard and very quiet. Richard is a wonderful host with a wealth of rich experiences to share. We felt this was a great location for us to hit Blue Mountain and hike the Bruce Trail.

Welcoming couple

We appreciated our warm welcome, and visit on the patio. Lovely couple, very friendly and knowledgeable. Would stay again if in the area, and would love to host them in return.

A nice quiet spot to stay for a few days.
My hosts were very, very nice to allow me to stay and use a little electricity to help with the night time temperatures.

Because of COVID -19 we were considerate of each other and maintained our social distancing. I enjoyed our brief chats and hope to met up again.
