Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I retired from SW lower Michigan (Sheriffs Department) in 2008. I own property south of Traverse City, Michigan and have a large pole barn that will be my home port when I decide to seek out warmer climate in the winter. I've been living in my fifthwheel while being involve in my construction project.
I have a FHU site for myself and two sites with RV electric boxes. One 50 amp and the other 50,30 and two 20 amp box. One indoors vor my bad weather months. I have water but not sewer hook up for guests.
My retired law enforcement friends visit frequently too. I have a long turnaround which could be used as no hook up, boondocker only space.

Camping Spot

We spent several nights at Bill's place south of Traverse City, MI and really enjoyed the peace and quiet his place offered. He was absent when we were there. We sure would have like to meet him sometime. We are discussing going back up to the area next summer if we can. Maybe we can meet Bill then.
Thanks again Bill.

Just the nicest

My girlfriend and I stayed a night at Bill's. We both loved him and also Rufus. Bill's kind, quiet. and gentle manner soon had us talking like old friends. Thank you Bill for sharing a slice of your life. We loved getting to know you and Rufus.
