Always looking for another place to visit!

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are both working professionals. I (Karen) am involved in Emergency Management. My husband, Tom, is an electrical contractor. We try to get away at every available opportunity and explore the beautiful area we live in. We fish, we hike, we cross-country ski, we canoe, we camp, and above all, we explore the archaeological sites of the Southwest. Since we've been to a majority of the cultural sites in the Four Corners area, we can share with you our experiences and help you plan your next destination. We are also both volunteer firefighters/first responders of our local fire department (Tom is the Chief, I'm the Training Officer).

Skills & Expertise to Share

I'm a cultural historian of sorts, and love to share my knowledge of the local prehistoric cultures. Tom is an electrical contractor, and knows a thing or two about wiring.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

We'll go anywhere, given the time! We spend a lot of time in the canyon country of the Southwest, as well as the mountains nearby.

thedicksonsfarm's Hometown

We live in the remnants of a small uranium mining town. Our house is in a constant state of remodel. Most people out here are either retired or commute somewhere else to work. It's a great jumping-off point for trips to the canyon country or trips to the mountains.

thedicksonsfarm's Rig

We have a sweet, 2014 23' Keystone Passport. We've had some smaller rigs, such as a Coleman popup and a 1971 Red Dale that we restored. We've also had a 25' Forest River travel trailer. We think our Passport is going to be just right.

Great place to stay.

We really enjoyed our stay with Karen & Tom on their Mesa overlooking 3 states. The views are fantastic and they gave us good advice about Utah travel. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome and we hope they visit us some day.

Thanks guys,

Perfect night

We stopped for one night at Karen and Toms home and got a warm welcome, a very nice chat and many useful recommendations about the area around Moab. We would come again of course. The area is very quiet, we felt save and you can sleep well.
