People call us a happy, easygoing and flexible family. We love to meet people, are hard working and happy to travel. We love a clear dark night sky to lay back and see the stars after the kids are sleeping (if we haven’t yet collapsed from exhaustion 😴)
Handy, light carpentry, nature lovers, chickens and light electrical work 110v and 12v.
Chickens, quail and a bearded dragon back at home.
We've taken the family on month or longer road trips before, and have camped, and/or stayed in 25 states to date. We've gone up along the East coast, covering NJ, NY, MA,CT, VT, NH and ME in one trip, and on an earlier trip went somewhat westward and back, covering PA, OH, MI, IN, IL, and WI, before heading southwards through KY, WV, VA,and back up and eastwards through PA.
This trip we’ve gone through NJ, PA, OH, IN, IL, IA, NE, SD, WY, MT, and ID.
Additionally we've traveled without the camper to CO, NV, AZ, CA, FL, NC, and MD.
We love nature, new places, wide open spaces, meeting new people (not huge crowds) and exploring new places. We are currently exploring the country westwards, hoping to explore some of the more beautiful places in the Western US.

Lots of family time for this group. I hope they have safe travels and remember in Wyoming gas stations can be far and few between.
We hosted this family along with their friends. I had my concerns about having 10 children on the property but it went well. They were respectful of our boundaries and requests. They left their campsite clean and tidy when it was time to pack up. We wish them safe travels.
Therowners stayed with us four nights. The children are very curious, inquisitive, active, and enjoyed exploring their surroundings; I only wish I could have bottled their energy!
Family will be welcomed back any time they are in the area. Enjoy your travels and stay safe!
Therowners stayed a few days and added joy to our lives. The family of 9 +1 is traveling the US providing experiences for their children that will be etched in their memories forever. Mom and Dad juggled all of the responsibilities of family and fun in an exemplary way. At the onset Dad was very up front with his expectations of the children with included respect for the hosts and their surroundings. We greatly appreciated this and the children certainly adhered to these expectations. Jobs were given out and shared by all. The children are very curious and active and enjoyed exploring the surroundings.
We shared lots of conversations on the gamut of life with open and honest give and take.Within these conversations we learned many new things about different cultures. Dad generously shared his incredible musical talents one evening and we were greatly pleased and entertained.
The whole family will certainly be welcomed back any time they are in the area as we are anxious to watch the children grow. You will enjoy hosting this family. Another forever friendship has been developed through Boondockers Welcome! Safe travels.
They are why we joined Boondockers Welcome. We love meeting and sharing our home with others. Therowners were our first large family and it was great. They repaired our deck and cleared some of our trail. The moose head they gave Cecil is perfect. So glad they stayed with us. (I found a little shoe in the drive)
A fun loving and friendly family. Enjoyed being involved in their adventures and excitement for travel.
