Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Cathy and Howard have finally made it. We are starting our new life as full time RVers. We still are semi-retired who love to 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. Howard is busy on the family farm, trucking grain and working the fields. We choose to rent out our home for 1 year starting Nov 2017, so we will not be hosting for 2018. 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.

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

We live on a farm close to the Grand River. We are about 30 minutes south of Hamilton. Small towns are all around us.

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

Great location!

Howard and Cathy are very friendly. We drove nearly from Montreal and were road exhausted. They met us at the roadside and welcomed us right in. Very quiet and serene. You will love their dog. TOO CUTE!

Serene quiet farm

We stayed with Cathy and Howard for 2 nights last weekend and had a wonderful, quiet stay. They showed us their new RV and talked about future travel plans. We hope to cross paths again in the future. Thank you!
