Hi! I love campers, vans, buses, the whole shebang. I love the idea of tiny living and have lived in a camper full-time in the past. Currently I am primarily stationary and working on turning our property into a farm while I renovate campers into tiny homes as my job. I love to travel in my handmade camper with my little boys and, sometimes, my husband Charlie.
I renovate campers for my job and am pretty good at figuring out how to fix things. I am better at the carpentry, handy work side of things and still working on learning how to fix systems (water, heat, ac, etc.). I also have spent most of my career as a professional seamstress.
I have eight chickens currently and will hopefully be fostering farm animals soon. I don't travel with any of them.
Never done it! Hope to soon.
I live in Greensboro, NC and, for the most part, love it. We have a great community and sweet friends and some good restaurants, coffee shops, and breweries in the area.
I have a 10 foot homemade travel trailer that I pull with my minivan (also has been converted to have an extra sleeping area). The minivan has curtains that I use when using it to sleep).
It was easy to back into a spot at ElizabethS's place. Loved the chickens roaming around behind the fence. She kindly checked in on us. Nice overnight stay, we'd come again if in the area.
Elizabeth was so fun to meet and her boondockers spot was easy to access. She generously shared electricity which is always a bonus for me. If you're lucky enough to visit while she is re-doing an RV you can get a tour and see how really talented (it's what she does for a living) ever she is.
This is a good overnight stop. Level parking and easy access to the driveway.
Where to start? The house/property is beautiful. The camp spot is as described. It's approx 50 yards from the house in a gravel patch next to a gate leading to a small pasture. If being in the way or driveway camping is a concern for you, let me ease that now. You will in no way be an obstruction to daily life. The place is deep in the country and super quiet. They were very generous in providing us with water and 15a service. It got warm during the day but plenty cool at night. (We don't generally hang out in the camper during the day anyway). Your doorway faces east so in the evening, your awning provides the perfect amount of shade. Going solar? Loads of sunlight facing east first thing in the morning and lasting most of the day.
This was our first time doing boondockers welcome. They made us feel so welcome! We hope to go visit them again sometime in the future. We simply can't recommend them enough.
