Joan and Murray are retired high school teachers who enjoy RVing. We have 3 grown children, and 5 grandchildren.
We live on beautiful Trout Lake, a large lake 10 minutes from North Bay. Murray is a competitive runner, barbershop singer and a mandolin player in a bluegrass band. Joan likes to golf, play tennis, hike and entertain her 5 year old grandson and 2 year old granddaughter.
We are not particularly handy when it comes to fixing things. We could take you on a hike, share a meal or just chat.
We don’t have any pets at the moment but do love animals.
We generally like to travel in the southern USA for the winter. In the warmer months we go to many different bluegrass festivals in Ontario.
North Bay, Ontario is a city of 55 000, with friendly people, and a small town atmosphere. The city is nestled between 2 large lakes with nature being the main attraction. We live on one of the beautiful lakes, Trout Lake.
We have a 2013 30 ft Cougar fifth wheel. There are 2 slideouts on the same side but is functional with the slides in. Our total vehicle is a 2008 2500cc Dodge ram.
We really enjoyed Joan & Murray. We had a good bike ride, Murray entertained us with his mandolin and singing. Had some good fellowship and would have them back again. doverguy
He was a great guest. I did not get to meet his wife, as she had other plans. I hope the next time they are in this area I will get to meet her. I hope to visit them up north someday. They are welcome here allways.
We have thoroughly enjoyed On the Road Again visiting our Boondocking site here. They are very friendly and we loved getting to know them. They are supposed to come back and stay another couple days and we are looking forward to that time together.
Murray and Joan are , without a doubt, the perfect guest....They fall into the following attributes: Considerate Adaptable Interesting Appreciative Fun Natural We here at THE GROVE consider them FRIENDS. Good luck to Murray and Joan (On The Road Again) .....You are highly recommended to future Host.
Lovely, hospitable couple in a beautiful location. Recommend this dock!
We found ourselves in North Bay on our way across Canada and were lucky enough to spend a night with Joan and Murray as they were quick to respond to our request to stay. Their beautiful house on the lake lends itself to peaceful rest and relaxation. Both Murray and Joan are wonderful conversationalists having been long time educators and travellers. Though we wanted to go our whole 41 day trip without plugging in and relying upon solar, we needed a bit of a boost and they were quick to offer us a plugin. We hope to meet up with them again some time in the future.
