Lovely Couple

We had some great conversations with this lovely couple and would definitely have them stay again. The best treat was that they treated us to a delicious ice cream bar, chocolate and mint. Wonderful.! We learned a lot about their travels.

Wish they lived closer!

I wish there was a classification even better than positive for joebeach. Such a wonderful couple with so many different stories from their travels. We even had the opportunity to sit around and have a drink with them which was the highlight of our week. They are welcome back any time and we really hope they do!!

August 2021

Shared lots of info and ice cream,

Joebeach was absolutely a pleasure to host! So comfortable to visit with in our backyard setting. Was entertained by their 2 dogs who blended in very well with our chickens and the neighbor free range pet rabbit and the evening visiting young deer buck!

Wonderful couple

Very very nice folks who communicated very well and were kind and gracious. We spent a bit of time sharing stories but it was beastly hot and a little tricky to enjoy the outdoors. With that said, they would be welcome back any time so that we can continue where we left off. You will enjoy hosting them when they come your way and we sure hope to meet again. Save travels!


July 2021

What a great couple!

I really enjoyed our conversation and too bad it wasn’t a longer stay over so we could continue! Hopefully they will stop again some time if they’re out this way!


July 2021

Delightful visit

We enjoyed exchanging travel stories and mutual backgrounds. They are welcome back any time!
I was thrilled that my son was visiting and enjoyed chatting with them, too. Think now he understands that Boondockers are great folks and will no longer be concerned about "strangers" in my driveway.


July 2021

Very pleasant couple!

We were so glad the downpour they arrived in turned into more pleasant weather for a driveway visit. Joebeach are such a personable couple with two super-cute dogs, and we enjoyed talking to them about their home-on-wheels and their past and future travels. Hopefully at some point in the future, they’ll pass thru for another visit with us.

Joebeach are a wonderful loving couple who filled my evening with lively conversation.
I was proud to be their first Boondocker's stop. Having coffee in the AM and the possibility of a return visit brightened my day. Safe travels. Stay safe and well.

Easy going couple

Very friendly and easy to converse with. We practiced social distancing and they were very respectful of that. Paul enjoyed talking about our projects with them. Hopefully next visit we can be more social, cook out, or have a drink together. They are welcome to return.


June 2020

Joebeach are the kind of travelers Boondockers Welcome is made for! They are kind and considerate and have a small footprint. We enjoyed welcoming them to our site and had enough time for a few life stories. We hope they cam stop again!

Joe & Ann were our first overnight guests. Loved meeting them and trading RV stories. They were the perfect guests. We wish they could have stayed another night, our city has so much to see.
