Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Jan & both graduated from Kansas State Univ. After a tour in USAF as pilot, we farmed in north central Kansas for 35 yrs. We have 3 children, Traci has 3 boys, Lesley has 1 boy, Brent is single, he came back to farm in 2006. We leased our operation to him. We still help when needed. We have more hobbies than we can keep up with. Jan has always been a musician(piano & organ), she is into quilting, gardening, & "Grandma". I like to fly aerobatics, ride motorcycle, & like to restore anything(I've got more ideas than I've got done). We both enjoy skiing and teaching kids to ski. We do a lot of woodworking & restoring old furniture. We love to travel, have a 23' motorhome, and have spent 6-7 weeks on the road each year since retirement. We've made it to all 50 states, all but one Canadian Prov. & about 1/2 of Mexico. Always looking for a new experiance.

I'll try fixing anything. Does music, cooking, "Grandma",flying, skiing, woodworking count.

Great experience.

This was my first time boondocking and I feel like I have 2 new friends. My hosts were very welcoming and helpful. I can't think of anything else they could have done to make me feel more comfortable. I'm already thinking that next year I would love to come the same direction just so I can visit with them again. Many thanks for everything.

Beautiful Quiet Location

After a long days travel from our home in the CO high-country we arrived just after sunset. They invited us into their Earth-Sheltered Passive Solar home (in my mind my hero's for building such a resource) for a meal, saving us from cooking/cleaning as we enjoyed their ski adventure stories. We hope to ski with them if they get to CO. The spot for our RV was level & quiet. In the a.m., we got a tour of their farmstead & we hit the road.

Heart in the Heartland!

We (especially our 10-year-old, but us too!) had the time of our lives on their farm! We happened to luck out and arrived during wheat harvest time and got to ride in the combine. Super hosts, such a lovely spot, the lightening bugs were amazing, like natural fireworks. Highly recommend!!!

What a delightful couple

We really enjoyed our stay with rjmccoll. We arrived late afternoon and he gave us the tour of the farm and then we enjoyed a wonderful home cooked meal with them at their table. We were pretty bushed from our 7+ hour travel day so we retired in our coach (in their driveway) and were gone shortly after sun-up. Very quiet location, quite a little trip off the beaten path, but that added to the enjoyment and restful evening. If we find ourselves in the area again, we would most definately look for the opportunity again and we welcome them to our home in Ohio.

Highly recommend.

What a nice experience. Wonderful hosts. Response time was minutes. Not only did they give us a wonderful tour of their farm and earth house, they even fed us. It was interesting and educational to learn the names of different farm crops and special rock in the area. Thanks again for making the stop so interesting.
