BrendaGardner's Pets

I have a Yorkie named Doc and he is 11 lb.. He is very easy going and gets along with other animals. He maybe a little spoiled but, he's well behaved.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Last year Doc and I traveled from state-to-state for 5 months and we put on 20000 MI. We stayed with a lot of boondockers and all of them were very kind and helpful to us. There is no one boondocking location that was our favorite. We loved all the boondocking locations that we stayed at.

Daring Greatly - Bold Adventurer - Kind soul.

I really agree with all the other posts regarding Brenda and Doc. We were so happy to have them at our home. I wanted to be a little different and point out the joy that this wonderful soul provided my home for the short time they stayed here. Brenda is a deeply impactful person and inspired me to want to be a better person. Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen, thank you. You are always welcome back.

"Truth and courage aren't always comfortable, but they're never weakness.” “If we can share our story with someone who responds with empathy and understanding, shame can't survive.” “Vulnerability is the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy, and creativity. It is the source of hope, empathy, accountability, and authenticity. From Brene` Brown's book (Daring Greatly).

Quiet and Interesting

A experienced BW traveler who has a lot of stories to tell. Her rig is one like we used to have and it is well handled. She expertly and with confidence made it up and down our lower camping spot. Doc, in spite of being ill, was still a treat down by our beach and we enjoyed an evening by the fire with the little guy. Thanks for joining us for several days & best of travels to areas we would sometime like to travel. Cheers.

Quiet, Experienced BW guest

Poor sick little dog, we felt sorry for it. We did have one firesiide chat by the lake and the guest got a pontoon boat ride by a passing fisherman. We hope the little guy gets better. She looks to be a breed similar to ours. The stay continues.

Happy to Host!

We very much enjoyed having BGardner and Doc stay at our site.

She was easy-going and flexible during our very busy, family-filled Father's Day weekend! She even joined us for some of the fun!

She is a respectful and quiet guest. Absolutely would host her again. We wish her all the very best!

The Intrepid Traveler and her sidekick, Doc

Brenda ended up coming a day early and we were able to provide her with the electricity needed to run her a/c in the beastly heat and were glad she was close enough to be able to have a problem fixed. In between she introduced us to the location of a local beach of which we were not aware. B's traveling is fun to hear about and we wish her luck in her future travels. And Doc is an adorable little gentleman.

Polite, quiet, great conversation

Brenda was our first guest, and I’m very happy for that! She was so polite and friendly it really helped relax us. We didn’t really know what to expect, but it was really great. We are still settling our property for the demands/expectations of boondockers, but she seemed to tolerate us very well. Thank you Brenda you’re welcome back any time! Good luck on your adventure and safe travels!

BrendaGardner and her little pooch, Doc, made Little Italy home for a short time. It was fun to watch Doc explore his new surroundings and enjoying room to roam. They both were an enjoyable stay and are welcome back anytime.

Hard to come up with something different for each good guest. We Have hosted over 30:guest and each one has been a joy to host. Brenda and friend were no exception . They are both welcome anytime as is all the rest we have hosted. They were so quiet I had to look out to make sure they were still here. As Long as we have guest like Brenda we will host Even after we no longer camp.

Delightful stay

This guest was one of the best boondockers i have had the pleasure of hosting. Great conversation, very respectful and clean,. We had a chance to sit and chat, which I don't always have time to do and she was the perfect conversationalist. I would gladly host her any time! Very special person.

What Boondockers Welcome is made for

I would have liked to hear some of BrendaGardner’s stories from the road. I only had a few minutes to chat in the driveway before she left. I kept forgetting she was there until I happened to look out the window. Pleasant lady. She’s welcome back any time.

A nice visitor

We enjoying having Brenda and Doc (the cute dog) stay with us. Brenda is doing something most of us only dream of—getting out of our comfortably uncomfortable existence and exploring the world. In her case, she's exploring the states in her truck/camper. She's interesting, considerate and an easy guest to have.

We love Brenda and Doc, Hope to see them again!

What a delightful Lady. We absolutely loved hosting Brenda and her adorable dog Doc. Sometimes you meet people and become instant friends and that was the case with Brenda. She could not have been any nicer or more considerate. Her dog Doc is just the sweetest thing, he sticks right by her side and never makes a sound. We would love to have them back anytime and hope they stop by again.

Quiet Friendly Guest

I would welcome her to stay again if she is ever in my erea again. In 4 nights, I never saw or heard her dog other than her first day when she carried it with her on our hike up to my cave.

Pleasant guest

This guest was conscientious about her dog and friendly. She very much kept to herself and was polite. She asked to empty her grey tank in my garden but I had to say no because it's too close to my stream, my house and also where my dog roams. She understood.

Thanks

Our recent guests, Brenda and Doc, are proof that Boondockers Welcome works!

Their 3 month ’roundabout’ has primarily seen their overnite stays spent at Boondocker Welcome sites.

We were happy to be one of these sites.

Safe travels Brenda and Doc, it was great meeting you two.

My work plans changed and that left her on her own at my place all weekend. She was perfectly able to get herself settled and communicated with me throughout her stay. Safe travels! You're welcome back anytime :-). Give Doc a hug!

Excellent Boondocker

She was very positive and talkative. Loved hearing her stories and enjoyed meeting her. Her dog Doc was very easy and was not any trouble. I like to hear about people who just say I'm leaving for months to see the country. Very refreshing. I wish her luck in her travels and hope she sees everything and more.

Well, I must say it was fun having a woman to visit with. We are a bit isolated as of late.

Have a safe trip and enjoy your time on the road. Hope to see you again !
