My husband and I enjoy camping and traveling. We’re also members of a retiree group called Evergreen where couples stay in our guest room for $20/night which includes breakfast. We have a 1 acre lot so there’s plenty of space for RVers. Our area is a four season vacation area with lots of recreation opportunities like golf, fishing, hiking, skiing and more.
I was a teacher for 32 years and my husband Tom spent 30 years in construction in southern CA. We have 5 children and 8 grandchildren. Since retiring in 2006 we’ve traveled and I have worked as a Realtor for 11 years while Tom has kept busy with handyman jobs for friends and family.
Information about the area... places to hike, fish, etc. We’re close to the Petrified Forest and Painted Desert about 3 hours from the Grand Canyon. We have trail maps, info from the Chamber of Commerce and we're happy to share.
Yes we have a young puppy, Peaches who is in training for barking cessation, not jumping on people and generally being more socially acceptable. Please be patient,
Looking forward to building a list of boondocking places to stay.
Show Low is the retail hub of the White Mountain area. As mentioned there are many opportunities for a wide variety of recreational activities—golf, hiking, skiing, fishing and other winter activities. Mild summer temperatures allow for canoeing on lakes, biking and hiking. The ski area allows mountain bikers to ride to the top of the ski lift and ride down.

Loved hosting this great couple! Meeting wonderful people is a gift on Boondockers Welcome!
I stayed at Diane and Tom’s for two nights and enjoyed myself so much! They helped me get oriented to the area - even gave me a map with lots of local hikes. We ate dinner together one night - both Tom and Diane are interesting people with some fun stories. They went above and beyond with their hospitality.
I appreciated meeting Down Abe’s sister as well - another solo female camper.
I feel I made friends the last two days.
Boondockers Welcome is exceeding all expectations I had when I joined.
Oh - and the ponderosa forest region of AZ is really beautiful. Great weather and fantastic hikes all over.
Timberland acres was a beautiful quite peaceful place with elk, deer and wild turkeys walking past several times a day. Our hosts were friendly and kind and offered brochures and maps of the area. I tried to get some replacements for them at the chamber in Show Low but they were closed till 2021. Thanks for the great time.
Had a wonderful time in Show Low, and our hosts were truly exceptional. They provided us with brochures of the area, and my wife fell in love with Peaches, their pup. We were able to put some water in our tank, and I gained some good info on the solar setup they have on their home.
Our hosts are preparing for a trip of their own, and we can only hope they have as good an experience on the road with Boondockers Welcome as we have had with great hosts like them!
This couple should write books they have done everything and seen everything They should write books wonderful wonderful host wealth of information from realestate to construction . Trailer backup into their driveway but tree covered and lovely
We had a nice stay outside of Show Low. Diane and Tom greeted us an offered water for filling out tanks and 110 electric hook-up. We had a nice walk with our dogs in the neighborhood. Our 28 ft. Trailer was a bit tight and we had a bit of a hard time maneuvering it in so we could put our slide out. All in all a nice stay!
Our Hosts made us welcome and comfortable. There are several attractions and lots of outdoor activities in the local area. Our Hostess had brochures for many of the attractions. We had two full days of touring, exploring, hiking. Thanks to our Hosts for a great stay.
Diane and Tom were very friendly and accommodating, even chopping off a few tree branches to allow for our 25 ft RV. They also provided electricity and water. It was very peaceful and quiet. Thanks!
had a great stay, thank you. Had fun playing with the dog. Am gonna miss her! Enjoyed visiting and sharing information. Hope to stay in touch! Thanks again!
