We were sailor for the past twenty years and move on to land seven years ago, to visit the America were we could see beyond the horizon. We got ourselves a small "vessel" so we could go every were on land we wanted to. In those seven past years we have visited all across the northern part of America (Canada) from New-Newfoundland all the way west to Yukon and Alaska. We enjoy meeting peoples and share knowledge with them. How long is it going to last? Hopefully, as long as we've been sailing! Than, may be we will be ready to sit on the patio!
We want to see as much as America as to offer, nature is our main concern in planning our trips. We are french speaking guys and we try to gather with all nation to share new experience and learn more about camping. We hope to learn more of the Shakespeare language to communicate and share experiences with new peoples.
Monique and Mike
WELCOME YOU !
I am a retired electrician that spent a good part of my working life (42 years) in traffic controllers repair's and installation, freezing at the street corners in winter time while nervous drivers horn at me! I had also good time in programming and/or fixing industrial machinery. So if you have a electric problem with your rig, I might be able to give you few hints!
We do not have a pet with us because we're on road to often and we don't feel good about tying a pet to our camper while we travel or visit places.
Newfoundland,N-S,N-B; Ontario; Manitoba; Saskatchewan; Alberta; British-Colombia; Yukon; Alaska and northern US states. We keep Quebec for our older's day! Of course all the place we've visited up to now were beautiful. Last winter/spring we did a loop in souhtern-west of US wich we found very attractive for last winter! Winter of 2015, you must follow- it on: startrekfarwest.blogspot.com

Drummondville is a nice cozy town were you can find all of your needs inside a 10 miles radius. Garage, R.V. distributor, groceries, outlets restaurant and much more. You can found FREE dump station at the tourist info center located at: 1350, rue Jean-Berchmans-Michaud, Drummondville, Québec, Canada, J2C 2Z5. The station is on your left at the end of the parking lot.
We have a small rig that we named " Startrek" which is in realty a Roadtrek 190. He was called so because he flight us where ever we want to go!
It was our first experience of boondocking, our first experience driving our fifthwheel and Startrek and his wife welcomed us with love and understanding. We traveled with our son (4 years) and young dog (labrador)and it was difficult for us but our hosts were here to help us. They gave us many informations to prepare our next trip.
The location was very nice, near a river, in a beautiful district of Drummondville.
Thank you for all! and you are welcome home!!
Our brief stay with 'startrek' was very pleasant. The setting & grounds were lovely; our hosts most accommodating & helpful; and after a social evening (with homemade raspberry dessert yet!)we ended with a peaceful quiet sleep. We couldn't have asked for more. 'Startrek' BDW is highly recommended.
Wonderful hosts, Startrek welcomed us, helped us set up. We had a lovely drink on the back patio exchanged stories as a fellow boater and rver. Great trails right across the road to take pup for a walk. Unfortunately only there for a night, will use again for sure. Thank you
A very enjoyable stop on our way home. 'Startrek' provided great directions and was a welcome sight when we arrived after driving through heavy holiday weekend traffic around Montreal!! We enjoyed conversation and a refreshing beverage after we arrived, and shared some stories around the campfire too. We would love to stay again! Et aussi, merci Mme. 'Startrek' pour votre patience et vos encouragements avec mon français!!!
This couple was so friendly and we appreciated their hospitality so much.
The rain and winds were not as bad here as Walmart. But nothing is. Got a lot of Walmarts ahead tho. Startrek was an oasis.
A really nice quiet spot for the night. Shared some stories with Mike on the porch. I had to leave quite early in the morning so wasn't able to thank them enough for the water and night. Great spot close enough to the main highways. Thanks.
We were fortunate to be able to stay at a fellow Roadtrekker's home while they were away. Their neighbour was available to assist if required but we had no issues. There was a firepit all ready for us but we arrived late in the evening. We hope to be able to meet Startrek in the future.
Stayed one night here and it was very delightful. Level spot, very quiet and would recommend it to anyone. Unfortunately our host was away but maybe next time. You are very welcome to visit us sometime, as well. Thanks again.
Nice people,which have done a lot of boondocking and had a lot of tips ,suggestions on how to make our trip better.Beautifulhome and grounds located on a river,pretty easy to find even for me a newbe..
Fantastic people!! Mike speaks English great, Monique is super and communicates well. Place is beautiful, hospitility is unsurpassed. I can fully suggest they are great hosts.
Mike is a wealth of knowledge on places to checkout. He provided me with at least two week worth of day trips for my time in Newfoundland. Contact Mike for info on his blog.
