Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I proudly served my country for almost 10 years and raised my kids into Teenagers. Now it's time to load up, relax, and enjoy all the beauty of wide open spaces/ hidden gems with my kids before they leave the nest.
I don't smoke or drink, and usually keep to myself though my kids love the outdoors so I supervise them on their outside adventures like theme parks, museums, zoo or hiking trails.

Swinn01's Hometown

Born and raised around rural Jacksonville, Fl. My parents moved around during my school years so I lived in Middleburg, Orange Park, Beach and Ponte Vedra, Palm Valley and spent a few years near Gainesville in Chiefland Fl. We will be full time for a few years until we complete our bucket list on all 48 CONUS states.

welcome anytime

this guest had a poor review before arriving but we took them in anyway and it worked well... they are new RVers and have a lot to learn but were trying to do the right things.. they were quiet and respectful and it all starts there.. being a veteran road warrior sometimes u forget the mistakes we all made when we started.. we helped this guest som and showed them a few things... they seemed eager to learn … they are a small family unit so we did not socialize with them as much as som others but that can be true of many guests and that is fine...we wish them well and safe travels.... they are welcome back anytime!

Unappreciative of Free & Safe Place to Camp

It is truly unfortunate that after 109 positive reviews we receive 1 negative review. As she pointed out in the review she had issues parking at the site she chose. She should have moved to a level area. There is plenty of level room. Also, she complained that "everything closes around 9 or 10." This is a quiet rural area; the larger cities are 30-40 minutes away. The generator was an industrial/construction site type & VERY loud. She was asked to move it to the other side of her RV as there were 2-3 other Boondockers parked in close proximity. Likely this is the real reason for her leaving a negative review. She never even thanked us for staying.
We welcome visitors to our farm to stay for free in a safe environment. Nothing is asked for in return. Swinn01 says "we may go back in the future," but her stay request will be denied.
