Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Married to my wonderful wife of 36 yrs! She has the gift of hospitality! Three of the most important things for me are FAITH, FAMILY & FLYING and in that order. RVing is up there too but it doesn't start with an F!

Skills & Expertise to Share

I can repair most things around the house!
How's that saying "expert of nothing but able to do most things" or something like that.
I do run a transportation business.

No, but we did at one time.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Honestly and unfortunately, the only boondocking we have done was a Flying J and our own driveway.

Ideal spot

Lititz is a wonderful town to visit in an area full of history and beauty. "Nothing Fancy" is a great spot for exploring. The driveway is easy to get in, very private and has 50 amp service and water. But bring a long extension cord for the electric. My host came from work (nearby) to meet me and make sure I was properly settled. Rainy weather kept me RV-bound most of the time but such is boondocking!

I definitely recommend Nothing Fancy and would love to come back during the dry season.

Nice and FANCY

We had great stay in quiet neighborhood. The host were not home but we did get to see them briefly before we left. We would love to go back if the opportunity arises. Lititz Pa is very scenic with all the older homes and the Amish way of life. The restaurants were very good and everyone was friendly

Easy in and out

Hosts weren't home, but we had a good stay. Backing in was easy and we were able to level easily. We didn't need power or water, but both were available. Power needs an extension cord. Access to wifi was very appreciated. Thanks for a nice place to park for the night.

Wonderful hosts, beautiful spot!

This spot is nice and spacious and easy to get in/out of. The home and area are beautiful and peaceful.

We loved getting to know the hosts. Wonderful couple who were warm, friendly people.

We made the drive to Philadelphia and had a great time during our visit. The Lancaster area also has quite a bit.

Quick stopover in a perfect setup.

Only stayed for a one night stop thru. The setup was fantastic and peaceful. Everything we needed. Although we did not meet the host, the information and communication was prompt and thorough. Thank you for hosting us.

A Wonderful Blessing!

Words can't express it enough for our hosts generosity and loving kindness that they have shown to us. We were in a very safe, quiet location that provided easy access to many area attractions. Excellent communication and directions. "May the Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace." Numbers 6:24-26

A wonderful experience

Craig and Alana were extremely accommodating and friendly. Their space is level. They provided electricity and water. It was so easy to park my vehicle. And, it was so peaceful and quiet. They provided seats to sit outside and they had beautiful Halloween decorations to enjoy. Their site has a beautiful view of sunsets. So close to the Lancaster/Lititz tourist attractions. I give them an 11 out of 10!! I am so grateful for kind and generous people like Craig and Alana!!

So much more

Had a great nights sleep o. Our 1-niter with gman1216. The place is so much more, beautifully manicured landscapes throughout the neighborhood, very quiet, great access to Lancaster area activities. We greatly appreciated the hospitality and wish we could’ve stayed longer. A highly recommended stop for a great location and host.

(Also ask for breaker on off when hooking up or Disconnect) our visit was brief do too a 7:00am.appointment.in Denver PA. For chassis/wheel alignment. We hope to pass through in the near future and spend more time with our friendly hosts.

Amazing Hosts!

What a blessing our hosts were. They made us feel super welcome and were very friendly. The property is tranquil, and the host's instructions were clear and helpful. The driveway is very easy to level. We only needed to use their 50 amp electric hook-up, so I had to use a 50 to 30 amp adapter, a 20 ft. 30 amp extension, plus our camper cable, and we were able to reach our hookup at the rear of the motorhome.

We just needed a quick overnight stay, but my wife and I would love to visit with them again next time we see the area. They have a beautiful home and are lovely people! Thank you again!

More than Nothing Fancy

What a great spot! Nice level asphalt surface with water and 50amp. I did have enough of and extension cord to position out of the way so gman1216 provided one to use while there. Although our schedules didn’t line up (we went to historic Lititz, which a must see) the short time we had to chat he was very accommodating. Gman1216 is what Boondockers Welcome is all about. We will be requesting to come back.

Shelter in the storm

Spent a rainy day on the Pennsylvania turnpike and was really happy the host accepted my request to stay. Driving through the idyllic Pennsylvania countryside on the way to their home was really pretty special. Didn’t get to meet them but spent a peaceful night safe at their place, even my pup slept like a baby. Grateful for the accommodations

Terrific hosts!

Gman1216 was a wonderful host with a beautiful home and level spot for us. It was a very easy back-in with lots of room. He and his wife stopped for a friendly hello, but we were already in the middle of preparing our dinner. So we missed a great opportunity to really get to know them. They were so accommodating and friendly we really wish we'd had more time to visit with them. We hope to visit them again.

Very nice location!

Thank you for letting us stay. You have a very nice parking area and we had a great time exploring the Amish farm markets and all of the beautiful back roads around you.

Much more then Water and Electric!

I don’t know where to start. Let me first say that my wife and I were initially hesitant due to the Virus Pandemic and restrictions that were put in place for travel.
Upon arrival we were greeted by gman 1216 who let my wife and I know that he was totally comfortable with our stay request and that No mask were needed for our interaction with him unless we really felt more comfortable by wearing them and keeping at a distance. Wow what a up front relief for all of us.
We were the first guest that they were hosting and what a beautiful experience we had. The wife was so warm and friendly we spent several hours chatting with them on the rear patio of their immaculate spacious home. Driveway parking was level with And plenty wide with lots of privacy.
We have invited both of them to give us a visit here in Delaware and they have graciously accepted.
Great place again for other Boondockers to explore. We will definitely pay them another visit in the near future!
Believe me it is much more fancy then water and electric.
