Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Still work part-time, but trying to not let that interfere with traveling too much. Involved with Disaster Relief ministry. Wife is retired Special Education teacher's assistant. Both of us enjoyed many years leading our church's Special Education ministry. Being able to travel and experience this amazing world makes us realize how blessed we are.

I have pretty good mechanic and DIY skills; but not a Pro.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Campgrounds in a natural setting are what we prefer. Traveled for first time out west this summer (2017). Hit 27 National Parks & Sites and all were great: Tetons, Yellowstone, Glacier, Great Basin, Capitol Reef, Arches, Little Big Horn, Badlands, Pipestone...
Our travels in the east have been great too: Acadia National Park (ME), White Mountains (NH), Adirondacks (NY), Grayson Highland State Park (with wild ponies, VA) come to mind.

PeteRT's Rig

Rig Type: Class B

20 feet long

We have had a 2006 Roadtrek Class B van for 6 years now. I use it as my daily driver to work and around town. I have made many mods and upgrades, with a list of more I would like to do. We like the flexibility it gives in traveling and boondocking.

2nd Timer

After hosting many boondockers we have found all of our guest to be interesting and enjoyable....
Pete and Letty have become our friends that we will know for a long time to come.
They have hosted boondockers who have traveled from their place to ours, and visa versa. The "French Family", comes to mind. Any host will be pleased to meet Pete and Letty.

Great communication

We didn’t actually make it to Pete’s due to severe rain and thunderstorms. We ended up spending the night in a Walmart only half an hour or so from Pete’s. We kept in contact with Pete but after several hours of driving in torrential downpours and flooded roads we had no choice but to find somewhere to park. Pete was gracious enough to let us know that our safety was his first concern and that we could arrive at his place if the weather broke no mater how late it got. I hope we get to meet Pete on another trip! Thanks Pete for being so understanding.

Highly Recommend!!

Would highly recommend staying with PeteRT. Accepted our stay on a very short notice and we are so glad to have not missed the opportunity to meet this wonderful couple. Lovely setting, didn't even have to disconnect. We were able to sit and talk about all kinds of subjects, confirmed our interest into ways to help others in need as we travel. Would love to have stayed longer and explore the area. Definitely hope to meet up with them again.

Pete could not do enough for us, even fixing a broken RV door handle. Highly recommended.

Wonderful stay

Stayed with our amazing hosts for 2 nights. We enjoyed sharing camper modification ideas. They gave us great info on things to see/do in Hampton, Va. Hope to see them again as we have an interest in disaster relief and they are seasoned volunteers. They are welcome to stay with us anytime.

Wonderful stay very accommodating!

Thank you! I wish you many blessings and a happy Easter! Great stay very accommodating very safe area and very quiet area except for the Cowboys occasionally from Langley dipping their wings in flybys! Which is normal for the Norfolk Hampton Virginia area. Lots to see and do here it's my favorite spot in Virginia! A wonderful stay and rest for a weary traveler who still has a thousand miles to go! Kind regards Paula

Wonderful host

It was great staying with Pete and his wife. He responded quickly to my request and let me boondock even with short notice.

I had good internet access and 15 amp power.

If I am in this area again I look forward to spending time with them.

Wonderful stay, lovely hosts!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with this hospitable couple! They went to great lengths to make sure we were comfortable and felt at home. We shared a lovely meal and enjoyed spending time getting to know them. They were so great with our kids and were ever so helpful planning our journeys and giving us local information. Our only regret was not being able to spend more time with them.

Nice Quiet Spot

Stayed one night with Pete & Letty, nice area and a level paved parking spot. Enjoyed meeting our hosts and the tea and coffee cake was good. Would gladly stay again and hope we can reciprocate on a trip to our area.
