Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I took a year leave of absence from my professional job in Minnesota, and my wife left her teaching position to travel the country for a year and homeschool our children. This has been my wife’s dream for over a decade.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I’m a “helper”. If someone needs help, I’m typically ready to jump in. As a jack of all trades, I’m capable in almost everything from construction or maintaining vehicles to more intellectual aspects. My wife, the elementary teacher, is great with kids. She loves figuring out how to organize and make life efficient.
We both enjoy helping people develop financial well-being through budgeting and planning.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Virgin Valley on the Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge in Northern Nevada.
Gebo Wyoming, a ghost town on BLM land.
Badger Canyon near Lee’s Ferry, Marble Canyon AZ

Youngsma's Hometown

We sold our house in Marshall MN in June 2019, and left our friends and family to experience and explore the USA while we learn all about our great country. We will return to Minnesota in June 2020.

Youngsma's Rig

Rig Type: Fifth Wheel

35 feet long

Well cared for 2006 Ford F-350 XL (white, crew-cab, single rear wheels) diesel pickup towing a 2014 Keystone Hideout fifth wheel camper. The fifth wheel has two slides, one slide on each side. Total width of 13 1/2 feet when extended. My pickup came with a backup beeper that I have chosen to retain as the safety factor outweighs the potential annoyance.

Youngsma's Travel Preferences

  • Has a tow vehicle
  • Travels with kids, ages: 8 & 9, 1st & 3rd grades, boy & girl
  • Has slideouts

Beautiful Family

It was my pleasure to host the Youngsma family. Very polite and pleasant and kind people. Their children are beautiful and they are giving them experiences most people can only dream of. I will welcome them back anytime!

Great guests

It was great meeting this family. My kids loved playing with their kids. They shared valuable information on RV traveling that we’ll be using on our upcoming trip. We would love to host them again.
