Adventure Van Life!

Active Guest

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We travel full time in our 4x4 adventure van experiencing North America’s beauty to the fullest. We are avid hikers and kayakers and are most happiest when out in the back country in the wilds. However, occasionally our van can be found parked at the opera or playhouse or inner city arena for some urban fun.

ByTheRiver's Pets

No pets but we are animal lovers, especially dogs.

ByTheRiver's Hometown

Being full time travelers, our “home” is where we are. The people around us become family and we love to embed ourselves into the communities we visit. We seek out the locals to tell us of hidden treasures in their area to see and do. We want to experience it all! Originally, we are from Santa Barbara, California but we have strong ties to Las Vegas, NV and the Jackson, WY area.

Wish the stay were longer.

By the river is a fantastic couple. We thoroughly enjoyed conversations out on the patio during their one-night stop here. Highly recommended.

Easy to please, very self contained. Glad to share the lake with this nice couple. They did feed a few mosquitoes but that is life in Maine. We will welcome them back on the next go round.

Great quests that became instant friends.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time with BYTHERIVER. We hit it off right away with the two of them. We spent several nights by the fire sharing stories and enjoying talking about each other’s experiences. I learned several things that will help Mona and I as we head out with our motor home. We also met up with them after they left here for a great afternoon. I know we will get together as time goes on as we all are looking forward to it. They both are welcome here anytime.

Great Guests

Really glad to have met ByTheRiver. They are welcome at Pfisterville next time they are in the area. Who knows, perhaps we will run into you up north?

delightful couple

Jerry and Kim are fun guests; self-sufficient and knowing. Lots of adventures to share. It was great hosting them and I hope they come back. I want to get a closer look at their rig!
