Repeat visitor

Bud has stayed with us a couple of times now and has been a great guest. We wish we would have been home this last time to visit again. Who knows maybe in the future.


March 2021


BUD.BETZ - Bud & Stephanie requested a short overnight stay as they were on a "speed" trip to Georgia from the west. Their communication with us was excellent keeping us informed every step of the way, particularly with respect to potential delays due to high crosswinds transitting Wyoming. Another update as they lunched in Laramie! They set up out by the snowdrifts remaining from our blizzard of the 14-15th as their dogs enjoy the "white stuff" and they require no hookups! Becky and I had company so we did not get to physically meet them, but feel as if we are acquainted through our mutual BOONDOCKER'S messages. They are most welcome to return to SPAGHETTI'S ROOST anytime that they are in the area and we hope to get to know them. Becky & George

Great guest, pleasant people. Wish we could have visited more. Very good communication regarding their stay. Welcome back anytime.


February 2021

Thank you

Again I was fortunate to meet another great couple. Only regret is not having more time to chat.
As Bud stated, we have a lot in common, I hope and look forward to meeting you both again.

Safe travels!

What a pleasure!

Adorable couple ... and great furbabies! Was fun to find out he is a former Navy sailor -- and knew all about what we did in the Navy MANY years ago. Visit was too short and hope they stop by again next time they are in the area!

Thanks for the visit.

Overnight guests

Bud and wife showed up when expected. Politely called before their arrival, took good care of my space and were on their way as planned. Hardly knew they were there. Covid and cold/snowy weather kept out interaction short. They are welcome to come by again sometime.


January 2021

Perfect guests

A delightful couple whom I shared a delightful evening. They should be welcomed anywhere they care to roam


January 2021

Whidby Island Express ...

Bud's stay was brief as they were on a fast trip back home ... I wish they had had more time so that we could visit more ... Safe travels guys and stop in on your way back down ...

Making memories through the RV community

I am so thrilled that I signed up for this service. I opened my field to my first guests who within minutes became like family. We shared stories on the patio by the fire and dinner around the table. Their dogs got to play with my dog in my fenced in yard. We shared stories riding bikes to the beach and lighthouse. One day became 2 and we were enjoying the best times with our new traveling friends. Thank you for making memories and feeding my interest in RV traveling. I will see you again.

Great people. Great visit!

Bud.betz57 were wonderful guests who shared stories of their extensive travels! Their 2 well-behaved dogs got along great with my Skippy. The best part of being part of the BW community is the friends we make along the way. I’m sure our paths will cross again someday!

Friendly happy adventures couple

They were easy to talk with from the beginning. We enjoyed conversation at the camp fire in the light rain. Very respectful, hopefully will stop back on there return from maine.

Great couple

bud.betz57 were great guests. Had interesting and informative conversations. They were my first truck camper guests and learned so new things that will help me with my TC. They are welcomed back anytime and I would recommend them to other hosts.

Great guests

What a great couple! Had wonderful conversations over breakfast and around the campfire. Learned a lot about places to visit near their hometown that we have yet to visit. Hope they can stay again with us as they will always be welcomed back! Safe travels!
