We are a retired couple, John from engineering and Bonnie from special education

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I, John am originally from Iowa but lived most of my life in California where I met Bonnie, my wife of many years. We began traveling on our first vacation with a tiny travel trailer, and have continued to do so as our four children came along and the trailers got bigger. The kids are all grown up now but they treasure the family vacation memories they have. We travel as a couple now, visiting scattered family members, friends and of course sightseeing. We have a 29 foot trailer now with all the comforts of home and Bonnie finally got her queen size bed.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Being an engineer, I have electrical and mechanical skills that have been helpful when maintaining and traveling with our travel trailer. Since I have years of experience, I have had to deal with a wide variety of problems and have learned a lot in doing so.

John_and_Bonnie's Pets

We do not have pets but we enjoy those of our family members.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

We like campgrounds in the woods especially in the Eastern High Sierra of California around Bishop, Mammoth Lakes, June Lake loop, and Bridgeport. We also travel to visit friends and relatives, mostly in the western US. We have visited many National parks as well, and especially like Yosemite.

John_and_Bonnie's Hometown

We have been in Mesa Arizona since 2019. We moved here from Southern California where we had lived for many years. The move was to be near our 3 youngest grand children ages 2 to 5.
