Having spent 2020 replacing worn out knees and 2021 dealing with Covid, we will be in and out in the coming months. When not traveling we will be enjoying our new (little to us) home and hopefully some Boondocker company. :)
We like visiting with travelers and sharing destination information, especially about the Central Coast of California and, really, all of the western states. And, we love learning about other peoples adventures.
No... unfortunately I am allergic to most of them. Your pet is welcome but I cannot interact with them. :(
Tuolumne Meadows in the high Sierras. Huntington Lake. Zion and Canyonlands. Highways 12 and 9 through Utah.
We live in Lompoc, Ca. which is near Vandenberg AFB on the Central Coast one hour north of Santa Barbara and three hours north of Los Angeles
We travel in a 2006 190Popular Roadtrek which is about the length of a long bed pickup truck. We can park anywhere. 15amp electric is nice but not necessary.
So glad J&M were able to visit our home. They are backroad travelers, true 'shunpikers'. Easy guests, hope to see them again, perhaps in CA.
Wonderful couple. Thank you for sharing your knowledge. Safe travels.
Very impressive to see J and M travel our great country. Their energy and spirit of adventure was contagious. We enjoyed having them and learned much from their travels. They are welcome anytime.
We really enjoyed hosting these folks. Kind and thoughtful, left no trace. Welcome back anytime. Best of luck on the rest of your travels!
J and M Central Coast were such a delightful couple to spend time with. I wish we could have had more time together. I hope to be able to host them again.
It was nice to host J and M. We enjoyed our conversations and sharing a meal with them! They are welcome back anytime!
We were privileged to host this lovely couple at our place. It was a pleasure to get to know them. We enjoyed visiting with them and trust they will continue to have safe travels. We would welcome them back anytime.
We really Enjoyed our visit with Marno and Judy. We loved the pictures Judy took of Alaska and Utah! Safe travels!
They spent a couple of nights with us and we visited them at the local Roadtrek gathering. Had great conversations
Enjoyed meeting J and M at my home site. Conversation was too short, but you have to sleep some time :) Nice considerate people.
Judy and Marno caught us in a good mood, but with foggy, chilly weather; unusual for our site. They were gracious guests and were very informative about RV travel and Boondocking in particular. We shared stories of high adventure on the road, and more. They were our very first Boondockers guests, and they have set a very high standard, indeed!
Thank you, Judy and Marno for getting us started on the right footing. See you in Lompoc!

What a wonderful couple to meet, we were gracious for their advice and company. Definitely would recommend as this couple was happy to share adventures and any other suggested destinations once we asked! Thanks again!
J and M, J and M
I would really have been up schitts creek
The fire situation was so dire
The forestry service closed all BLM for the week
J and M really came through
We laughed in our chats
It felt lame to say a simple thank you
A lovely space to regroup, with the occasional cats
This was the second time I’ve stayed with J and M And it was like meeting up with old friends. We had a lovely time together and they even helped me with some problems I was having with my van. Lovely people. I will come back again when I am in the Lompoc area. Thanks guys.
J and M were very welcoming. We spent a nice period of time socializing and I felt like I had known them a long time. Their property is beautiful. Their backyard looks over the greens of a golf course. It was very peaceful and open and I was invited to spend my quiet time there if I wished which I did. A much needed retreat. I hope to come back.
J & M were wonderful hosts. I was delayed by the fires in California closing roads and they were very understanding about my arrival right at sunset. We enjoyed some conversation and drinks on the patio, many great traveling stories and some good advice. I typically get on the road early so we said our potential goodbyes in the evening, would love to stop back by if I’m in the area again.
J&M, thank you so much.
We had a wonderful stay with J&M. Our strongest recommendations go to you boondockers to stop and take advantage of their wonderful hospitality.
Despite the difficult nature of the Covid lockdown, they opened up to our boondock at their place while on our way down to Los Angeles to help our son move. They even invited us to their back patio to exchange stories of RV adventures, sitting across the patio for social distancing in these challenging times.

J&M Went out of their way to make sure we had a wonderful stay . They were even so nice as to take us wine tasting and show us around town.
Great spot in a nice and quiet neigbourhood! We had a great talk with J and M and they are so great for having us over even though in the midst of moving. Thank you so much!!
Judy and Marno were great hosts and very friendly and offered some really useful advise for our road trip up to San Fran. Thanks for making our first Boondockers so welcoming.
J and M were incredibly accommodating considering they were in the middle of moving! They gave us some good suggestions of things to do around town, we really enjoyed the local mission. They also helped us plan the next leg of our trip through Utah and we had great chats throughout our stay.
We hope to run into you guys again some day! Enjoy the new home!
We had a great stay, and some good conversations together with a bottle of good wine next to it. Also gave us good advice about our trip. Would recommend this!
I came only expecting a place to park my RV for the night. Instead I met some wonderful people and enthusiastic RVers. We compared RV setups and they shared lots of tips with this novice RVer.
We stayed two nights at J and M‘s house and we had a fabulous time (parked at the street but there was only very little traffic and the neighborhood is clean and quite). J and M invited us inside and we very lucky to get to know these two great persons. We had great talks about the area and traveling in general and hope to see them again one time :-)
These wonderful people went above and beyond. We really enjoyed meeting them and would have loved to stay longer if we hadn't had to move on to our next music show. We certainly hope to see them again. It was also a very nice, quiet neighborhood. Great for walks.
We are traveling for months in the USA and do a lot boondocking. And by Judy and Marno we feel If we visit good friend and family and we knew them for years. We stayed two nights and did a few things together and they showed us the area. We visit their church and met lovely people again. We feel blessed that me met them. We keep in touch and hope to visit that best Boondockers ever end of this year again when we come back to the USA. Thanks!!!!!!!
We stayed with J and M for one night, and they went out of their way to be sure we felt welcome. They had the electric cord out when we arrived so we could hook up right away. They even served us coffee in the morning while they helped us chart a course around the road closures to Big Sur. Overall, a great place tand stay the night!
We really enjoyed our stay. A beautiful, quiet spot with wonderful hosts. Would love to visit again soon!

We arrived later than planned at J & M's beautiful home. We are glad we did as we were welcomed by some deer in the garden, it was great to see the wildlife. On arrival J & M invited us in for some drinks and nibbles which was much appreciated, especially by our daughter. Sadly we were only staying the one night and were leaving the next morning, so we spent a while of the evening listening to their stories of their adventures and sharing ours. We also mentioned where we were headed next, at which point J pulled out all of her maps. In the morning after breakfast we went in and J had more maps laid out for us to take. They had both recommended several places to visit on our journey up north. They gave us so much information for the road and also for Yosemite National Park. We are so thankful for the recommendations as we got to see so many amazing things. We wish we could have spent more time with you.
We hope we get the chance to meet with you again one day.

We stayed with J and M for one night and it was a great first experience. They provided us with maps and all other sorts of useful travel advise. The area they live is very pretty. A very nice couple and we hope to see them in Europe sometime soon.
We stayed 2 nights. It was very nice ! They made us very comfortable. We had all the commodities available. Thank you very much for everything:).
We stayed with J and M....Central Coast for 1 night. Though members for over a year, this was our first Boondockers Welcome experience and we didn't know what to expect. Having a Roadtrek was instant connection for the 4 of us - plus we found out we knew people in common. They were very gracious and welcoming. We communicated a few times before our stay and they recommended a beach area in Lompoc that was uncrowded and easy. We'd been overwhelmed by Pismo Beach, etc. - way too frenetic and crowded for us. The Surf Beach was wonderful = just what we needed.
We discussed whether we could be hosts in Portland - and after talking with them and seeing what's involved in hosting - we're going to offer street parking in front of our home.
Definitely recommend staying with J and M....Central Coast. thank you both
We stayed one night at J & M's home in Southern California...a very sweet couple who were very accommodating. We felt safe and welcome. They took the time to share their knowledge of the area with us and also gave us some very good suggestions of places to see. Thank you once again, J & M, for your time and generous hospitality! We certainly hope to be able to repay the favour and welcome you in our hometown of Shediac, NB, Canada!
D & D & a dog named Charlie
J and M were lovely hosts. They have a wonderful home and a big driveway with enough space for a mobile home. We got along with them very well and enjoyed all their recommendations including exploring the local wine country, and visiting the Solvang Danish village and Saint Ynez areas. They were very relaxed and extremely accommodating. It is well worth your while stopping over and staying with them. We will hopefully be back one day!
Judy and Marno invited us to stay in Lompoc during our roadtrip in the southwest and they were were wonderful hosts indeed: kind, hospitable, informative and nonintrusive (hope they can say the same about us!). We did feel welcome and looked after. I hope we'll see them again!
