Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Hi, my wife Pat and I are seasoned campers having camped most of our lives with and without kids. We are now retired and are looking forward to traveling more in the states as time permits, to see more of this great country of ours and also making new acquaintances. We love the great outdoors and partaking in a lot of activities that each area provides. Having tented all these years, we have invested in our first trailer that we feel is a reward for all the years sleeping on the ground. We are looking forward to all the great places we will be visiting and the people that are part of the whole experience.
Thank you ahead of time for hosting us.
Rick and Pat Van Houdt

Sunny Smiles!

What a lovely couple! Would have been so nice to spend more time with them. Nothing but smiles and pleasantry even after a little hiccup in their travels. Hope to see them again one day!

A perfect pair to have as guests.

A wonderful evening of new friendships were grown. R and P are amazingly friendly, down to earth, travelers of the planet. Be rest assured, we will now have two new forever friends. If they request a stay at your place, just know that you too will make two new friends to last a lifetime!
Thank you for being a part of our world.
