Do you know or have you hosted this user?

At one time, we were sailor ! For many years (20), and move on to land several years ago, to visit the America because we couldn't see beyond the horizon. So we've got ourselves a small "vessel" and named "Startrek"so we could flight every were on land we wanted to. We flight very low so any radar see us ! In those 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. Finaly we've extended our land research in U.S. along western coast, flue a few time on the edge of Mexico gulf, California, Florida, the Eastern coast, all of the Atlantic's province. We are now exploring ou own province, and it's funny that we didn't explore before. Follow us on startrekfarwest.blogspot.com and on startrek-et-son-plan-nord.blogspot.com. May be you'll find or learn a little on your next destination. 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.

WELCOME YOU !

Skills & Expertise to Share

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!

startrek's Pets

We do not have a pet anymore with us because we're on road too often and we don't feel good about tying a pet to our camper while we travel or visit places. Of course we will always remember " Fanny " our German shepherd that left us many years ago.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

La Scie on Newfoundland ; Kegaska on St-Laurence north shore; Caniapicau in northern Québec; now dreaming to flight to Tuktoyaktuk, NT !

startrek's Rig

Rig Type: Class B

23 feet long

We have a small Roadtrek's motorhome that we called Startrek because it takes us where we want to go in a relatively longer time than a rocket because the old man still has the speed of his old sailboat as a speed reference. Also, this speed gives us time to enjoy the encounters with the people and the places we visit. And, because of its smallness, it forces us to get used to less thing to own in order to leave less trace of our passage on earth.

Beautiful location et very nice people

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!!

Lovely hosts, lovely property.

We had a wonderful one night stop over. Our very kind and friendly hosts made us feel very comfortable and welcome. They invited us to join them with family and friends on a riverside walk to see a local annual boat parade, it was a lovely sight to see. So nice of them to include us. Thankyou M+M for your kind hospitality and sharing your time, expertise and lovely property with us. We really appreciate it and look forward to keeping up with your travel exploits on your Blog.

Des Hôtes Super Sympa

Nous avons passé une soirée très agréable avec le couple startrek. Ils nous ont accueillies avec le sourire et nous ont fait sentir le bienvenu. Ils nous ont même offert de délicieuses tomates de leur jardin. Yum! Yum!
Endroit paissible pour passer la nuit. Merci de votre générosité.

We spent a wonderful evening with startrek. They were welcoming and we enjoyed a glass of wine in their backyard which has a beautiful garden and view on the lake. It was nice getting to know them and learn about their travels.
Hope to see you again!

Great hosts!

Our hosts (M&M) were incredible! Very welcoming, love life and share their RV adventures. They are a role model that is hard to match. Their experinces of their travels from West to East, North to South of Canada and USA is truly amazing. Sat and talked together around the camp fire in the backyard was a special touch! Another VERY POSITIVE experience. Our circle of friends is growing. My wife and I thank you once again for your hospitality. See you soon friends 🤠

Super welcoming and helpful

Startrek are a delightful couple, extremely helpful and informative. They are very hospitable and we enjoyed chatting with them in their beautiful yard overlooking the river.

Although I don't speak French, our host invited along on her morning walk through a forested area right by their home.

Would welcome them to our Comox location!

Uncommonly beautiful location host very accommodating

Uncommonly beautiful location host very accommodating. Be aware however that this is a lovely location but a driveway thus access to larger rigs should be considered

Beautiful home with beautiful people therein!

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 restful stop

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

Très belle rencontre

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!!!

Extreme winds but felt safe and protected

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.
Sweet time.

Quiet and Nice spot

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.

Peaceful stay

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.

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.
