Good folks

Glad we were able to host them in their new rig.
Watch out for these folks, I think they might even set up a BDW host site out here in the country one day.
Good people. We know you'll enjoy hosting them.

Fun couple

Fun and interesting couple, full-time in their RV.

My wife is a bit jealous of their motorhome. I helped Allen do a small repair to his water heater frame and bracket.

Then are welcome back anytime.

All the best,
Gerald, AiXia and Gaston

Can do it all couple

Very sweet couple that had a difficult time at Bella Terre. When they arrived it was pouring down rain even though the weatherman had reported occasional small showers. Due to visibility a very sharp left them stuck in the ditch. After much hard work they got out of the ditch and a big rut was left. I assured them that it was okay. Exhausted we all went to bed. Well, by the time I got back there the next morning all was repaired. How's that for hard working guest? After that we passed a great time. It was like having family once again. Please, come back soon!

WYOMING'S EXTREME CROSSWINDS!!

ANKRVING got to experience one of Wyoming's most notorious stretches of highway with respect to strong crosswinds plaguing both semis and RVers; I-25 between Cheyenne and Douglas, a north-south stretch with very strong crosswinds. The strong, westerly crosswinds kept getting under his awning and unrolling it, requiring numerous stops to resecure it and, finally, a safety stop in Wheatland to wait out the strong wind as it was simply too dangerous to continue with a light, high-profile vehicle. This saga extended their ETA at SPAGHETTI'S ROOST by about 4 - 5 hours and invoked the comment upon arrival "I need a stiff drink!" Hopefully, one was provided!! They are a very pleasant couple who provided excellent communication during their adventure. They are most welcome to return, though I am not sure that they would want to!! Becky & George

A special connection made

These folks were very interesting and fun to be with. When a boondocker stays more than one night, we get to know them a lot better than if only for one evening...We found we had a lot in common and seemed more like a relative than new-found friends.. Thanks to them for helping paint and making breakfast food!!! They are more than welcome to return anytime to the Quiet Farm and we are hoping to meet up with them in AZ this winter....Wishing them safe travels and more adventures in the future!!

Great Couple!

I met these two in Cheyenne WY at a BW host house. They are really nice! If you get a chance to host them don't pass them by.
