We are a semi retired couple, DW from the post office me form the nursery business. We still run a seasonal nursery on weekends only in the spring. New to rving and find we seem to prefer going to places without asphalt. We are practicing dry camping in our Minnie 32g.
We are located a mile off of I-5 at the Mt.St. Helen's exit at Castle Rock Wa. 50 miles above Portland.
I think in the winter we would only be able to accommodate class B or a smaller Class C or an A under 30'.Our driveway isn't turn around friendly especially after a lot of rain.. We are able to turn our 32' C around with a spotter. I would not recommend any trailers or toads. You can however unhook a toad across the street at a church parking lot,(except on Sunday). We have water available 15 amp 120v power with a 50' cord (which we have on hand) wifi that works fine if you hold your jaw just right and point your laptop toward our house. A city run sewer dump site 2 miles away free or donation (I suggest a donation, to keep it open). Our site is fairly level.
The mountain and Observatories are a few miles up the road. There is a Good Sam park one mile away and a state park, Seaquest, 4 miles.
We will be around most of the spring but would need some notice even if it's just earlier in the day.The nursery is open weekends in May, June, July and early August but this shouldn't effect guest RV parking. Please call at least a couple of days in advance starting in August, that is when we close the nursery and do our own traveling.
We may decide to take off at the last minute but if we did we would notify anyone that had already called. When we are gone the nursery is locked down.
We have 5 cats, pets are welcome but should be kept on a leash or indoors.Quiet dogs are appreciated. As well as closely supervised kids. There are so many greenhouses to get into that we wouldn't want the kids getting hurt.
We are in a bit of an echo hole so please no generators, our neighbors wouldn't appreciate the noise.
We are newbies and are willing to hear your rv'ing stories and willing to share a beer now and then. We are planning a fire ring that we plan to share with guests.

DW says I'm an expert at everything. I think she might be kidding. Ask us about your dead plants and flowers.

We started out looking for something in the 24' range in a C but by the time we added the bath and bedroom and pantry and shower we were up to 32'. Thought it would be a rolling box on the freeway but it drives very smoothly which is a nice thing. 2005 with one slide.
