Cathy and Howard have finally made it. We are starting our new life as full time RVers. We are retired snowbirds and love travel. We look forward to meeting fellow RVer's in order to gain experiences of others and an insight into the Pros and Cons of RV life. . Cathy has enjoyed working as a Probation & Parole Officer and currently as a part time support worker for Community Living. Howard is retired from Dofasco and retired as Auxiliary Inspector Ontario Provincial Police. We love to ride our Spider motorcycle. Howard has had in the past a Harley and a Goldwing bike. I saw the spider and said "whoopee" I need to get a motorcycle licence too. I turned 60 and got my spider bike. Howard got a Jeep. So that's how we travel. Our RV pulls the Jeep and I ride the bike. During our Covid-19 winter travel to British Columbia we stopped in Cochrane Ontario, and bought a cottage on a whim. Now we spend May-Oct in Cochrane Ontario.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Howard can drive all kinds of trucks, tractors and lawnmowers .

hlounsbu's Pets

We love pets and farm animals and will be travelling with our Yorkie named Blue.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

We love country spots. Farms, fields and under trees. We have boondock at Walmart when traveling. We enjoy Florida for a couple of months in the winter. Our plan is to travel from one side of Canada to the other, then explore the United States. We have motorcycled through to Newfoundland, HWY # 1, down the Mississippi and the Blue Ridge Mountains. We love Boondockers Welcome. We have stayed at great places and have had great people stay with us from all over the world, including France and Switzerland last summer. Our plan is to do lots more boondocking this year.

hlounsbu's Hometown

At one time we were Southern Ontario Folks, now we are Northern Ontario Folks. We live 15 minutes from the town of Cochrane Ontario. In Cochrane there is the Polar Bear Express train, and the original Tim Horton’s hockey arena as Tim Horton grew up in Cochrane. There are lakes and rivers all around us for fishing. Wed and Thurs there are farmers markets in town.

Enjoy the ride

This couple are experiencing boondockers welcome to the fullest. Interesting travel stories from very organized respectful guests. Welcome back anytime, when its not so windy maybe and you can stay longer to explore the sights or just peace and quiet. Safe travels

Great guests!

Howard and Cathy stayed only a couple of nights, but we enjoyed them being here. They tolerated a big dose of Southern-ness when we took them to a Bluegrass Homecoming Saturday afternoon.....they were good sports.

Howard and Cathy would be welcome anytime! ty

Puppy love

Had a great time with our hosts. Best of all, they raise Yorkie puppies, and I got to hold two of them [4 weeks old, I think] for at least an hour. How great that was. They snuggle and lick and give off puppy noises. We spent a quiet night, had hydro and water and enjoyed our conversations. Would love to come back to this place!
