Claire and Jim

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are from New Zealand and are semi retired and in our fifties.
We have bought a 23ft motorhome and have a 6 month visa to travel the US each year. We have travelled over 20 months in North America since January 2014.
Having spent the best part of three years travelling in our bus in New Zealand we have realised a long term dream of travelling in the States and Canada.
So far we have met some wonderful and entertaining people through this website which we recommend highly.
We are currently on our fourth north American trip starting in Salida, Colorado.

Very Nice Couple

It was a pleasure to have these Boondockers stay at our home. We would welcome them back anytime.

What a wonderful pair.

We had the pleasure to host the NZ "Dixie" couple. What a fun time we had chatting about our respective countries, our likes, lives, and just other stuff. They did their own thing, while we did ours on the farm. We stopped a couple times each day to visit. This morning they purchased eggs, lambs cuts, and one of our lamb fleece pillows. I can now say our lamb products will soon be international. They are welcome here any time.

Great folks

Had such a good visit that we ended up tagging along and camping just outside Yellowstone. We made some great friends. Hope to visit again one day.

Pleasurable, Appreciative, and Respectful Company

These guests (Dixie) were pure pleasure to say the least. They respected our busy schedule and privacy and expected nothing from us, yet appreciated everything. We enjoyed their company very much and were even sad to see them leave. We consider them great friends and they will always be welcome at our place.

Jim and Claire stayed with us for a few days to tour Calgary and visit the stampede. They shared interesting travel stories and were thoughtful, polite guests. It was a pleasure to meet them and have them stay with us.

Very delightfull couple.

Jim and Clair are very, very nice people. They suffered the attentions of our large dog with grace and, thankfully, amusement. We enjoyed many a conversation about the similarities and dis-similarities of our two countries and enjoyed a few laughs over the accents (both ours and theirs). We invited them along when we ran some local errands and thoroughly enjoyed exposing them to the “wonders” of Costco, Bass Pro Shops, and BevMo. We thoroughly enjoyed their company and invited them to return and stay again.
