Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Former IT Manager and Education Assistant enjoying our later years looking forward to many more days on the road in our Libero. Having camped for many years in a VW Westfalia where we could often stealth camp, it is nice to camp where we don't have to worry about being interrupted and asked to move on.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Barry can provide Macintosh computer support and technology help. Fern is great in the garden and everywhere else for that matter!

Favorite Boondocking Locations

We like to camp pretty much everywhere... no favourites to list as yet but beaches in Baja are pretty high up on the list.

A very nice couple

Barry and Fern came for one night. They are very enjoyable to spend the evening with and share a glass of wine. Completely self sufficient and didn't even know they were there. Great to meet new friends. Thanks Barry for helping me to understand iPhoto. You are welcome anytime.

Fantastic front porch

We sat and had our morning tea on their front porch. We watched the hummingbirds flit around the gorgeous flowers. A very quiet street within a nice walk to the lake.
They were very helpful and friendly. Checked to make sure our stay was a good one. Was hard to leave this beautiful area!

Experienced Hosts and Travellers with Great Amenities and Conversation!

Pulled into town to find out that all of our overnight boondocking options had been 'shut down'. We were so grateful that Westy responded to our last minute inquiry and provided an enjoyable overnight experience. Had wonderful conversation over a glass of wine in the evening and a morning cup of coffee. Looking forward to meeting up with them in the desert over the winter. Love making new friends with BW!

Sunny hosts on raining days

We are staying 2 nights instead of 1, so our comment follows later

We took our own advice, and on our return trip from the Rockies, when we knew we would be going through Salmon Arm again, we requested to stay a night at Westy’s. We received an immediate positive response, and an unexpected invitation to dinner. We had a wonderful dinner and enjoyed an evening of conversation. If you are stopping for the night in Salmon Arm, you need to stay with Westy and meet this great couple.

If you are anywhere near Salmon Arm, BC, you need to stay with Westy. After reading the one word response to our Stay Request “Absolutely”, I knew they would be a great couple to meet. Upon our arrival, they immediately offered us electricity & even the use of the bathroom in their basement suit, which included a sink, toilet, shower & bathtub. They invited us upstairs to have a conversation, but unfortunately we had to decline, as we hadn’t had supper & were pretty tired. I was tempted after having supper, to knock on their door to have that conversation, but I didn’t. Fortunately in the morning, they were out in their driveway, so we were able to talk for quite awhile. They are an enthusiastic & generous couple. We really enjoyed staying with them & would definetly stay with them again!
