Newly Retired (but working part time)

Active Guest

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Cheryl & I (Burk) are newly retired, hoping to travel Canada and USA. We are fairly active with cycling, walking, hiking & love to ride our motorcycle. We enjoy meeting people and hearing their stories.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I'm a mechanical engineer by profession. Also have some skills in woodworking, plumbing & electrical work.

Burk's Pets

We have a small dog, Milo. He's a Schnoodle (mix of Schnauzer and Poodle). He's very friendly & just loves to meet people even more than we do. He seldom barks. Most of the time, you don't even notice that he's there.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

We have limited boon docking experience; six stays with Boondockers Welcome so far and all have been very pleasant. Looking forward to many more.
If I had to pick a favourite location, it would be The Ranch in Laclu, Ontario.

Burk's Hometown

Our home is in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada. We've only lived in Niagara Falls since September of 2020, but have lived in the Niagara area for most of our lives. We spent about six years in beautiful British Columbia, which we totally enjoyed. We travelled quite a bit throughout the province, but can see ourselves heading back there for vacation and visit our friends.

Easy Guest

Communication was great with this guest and although we didn't meet the property was as it was before their arrival. Just what we want.

Can return anytime.

Great guests

Burk and Cheryl were very welcome and easy guests. Unfortunately I was working so did not get to spend time with them. Quiet pleasant and easy to accommodate. Pleasure to have. Burk thank you for the Italy info. Hopefully we can act on that in the future. Safe journey

A lovely couple

Although the weather was non-stop heavy rain and we did not get a chance to sit around a campfire we can highly recommend this lovely couple into Boondockerswelcome. Safe travels on your way to Ontario, Ralph & Shelley.
