My wife and I have a small A-Frame cabin on the Mississippi River. We spend the late spring, summer and early fall at the cabin with small trips interspersed at various times.
During the rest of the year we travel to different places in our truck camper (I don’t care for cold weather). We vary seldom stay at campgrounds. We like boondocking and sometimes Core of Engineer campground the best. Why would we want to be parked 10 feet from large campers on both sides when our cabin has no one within 100 yards? We enjoy being able to enjoy the peace and quiet of nature.
I don’t have any great skills. Sort of jack of all trades but master of none. I enjoy tinkering in my garage, fishing, boating, biking, walking and talking to people.
We do have two cats who have the run of the property at home by use of a cat door. They are not real happy when dogs are around but will just stay inside when dogs are present.
We do usually travel with them but they stay in the camper most of the time. We occasionally walk them on leashes (or should I say they walk us)!
We do Boondock a lot but very seldom in the same place twice. I get bored easily🙃. We prefer places near water when just doing leasurely traveling but don’t mind a Walmart parking lot if traveling and just stopping for a short night and need some provisions.
When not on the road, we stay at our cabin on the Mississippi River. We are only about 10 feet from the river. Sometimes we are “in the river” when it floods, but my cabin is 12’ above the ground so we just either wade in or kayak in depending on how high the water is in the yard. The deepest the water has ever gotten is about 10’ high. But the Mississippi River never flash floods and we always have at least a week or two warning of any upcoming flood.
It's meeting people like Pogostick906, which makes Boondocking.com so much fun. It is so nice meeting fellow travelers with the same interests as ours. Travel, hiking, biking and even having teaching as a career gave us so much to talk about. We were able to share a few meals, talk for hours, attend a music show in Louisville and walk the Big Four bridge. They were on time, communicated well, was self-contained and very quiet. We can't wait until they return and look forward to visiting them.
We had a few talks about I suppose what you'd call applied science and I would have loved to have picked his brain a bit more about life, the universe and everything (that's a reference to a book written by Douglas Adams). We saw too little of her too because I would have loved to have compared notes about anything sci-fi. I hope they come back again, if they can handle us :-)
Lovely couple visiting family needed a place to park here in surb land. They came and went and were very quiet and conscientious. Two little kitties watching out the window while they were gone were very cute.
A great couple! Very easygoing and self sufficient. They said they didn’t need anything but we got them plugged in anyway. It was cold and rainy but you wouldn’t get a complaint out of them. Enjoyed a good conversation in the morning and swapped some stories. I hope to see them again in the future. Welcome here anytime!
