I am remarkably successful at avoiding four-lane (and wider) highways, especially interstates (even when I'm not pulling my trailer), so road trips mean stoplights and stop signs, seeing real towns and talking to real people, driving with the windows down, eating real food, and taking my time.

There's always a camping tent in the car, and when the weather is right (especially when the sky is clear and filled with stars), that's where I prefer to sleep.

I'm extremely handy and can fix lots of things, but not broken hearts.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

I travel cross country from upstate NY to Southern California and back each winter, when my favorite (luxury?) boondocking spots are my sister's driveway in New Mexico and my daughter's driveway in California; as well as on the property of friends along the way and of all the wonderful Boondocker's Welcome hosts I've stayed with on my travels. But for more basic boondocking, I like the Bosque del Apache (N.M.); a lovely quiet lake in northeastern Mississippi; Cajun country in southern Louisiana, (as well as all along the Gulf Coast); the coast of California; and anywhere near and along the Mississippi, the Rio Grande, and the Colorado River.

JennyA's Hometown

If asked where I'm from or where home is, I say, Santa Fe, New Mexico and environs. It's not where I live, but it's where I have spent most of my life,. If asked where I Iive, I say, for now, upstate New York, along the Massachusetts border. It's where I own a home, where I keep my stuff, where I park my trailer, mow the grass, and grow a garden from May to October. I

A delightful host

After helping us park in her back yard anong her flower gardens, Jenny invited us for iced tea on her front porch. There we had a lovely chat, while forming a new friendship.
This will definately be on my future visit list.

Great host

Jenny was a wonderful host ! She was most helpful, going above and beyond to help us out with our few problems. She is also a wealth of useful informations for other boondockers. Her spot is great, right next to the forest and to her nice garden.

Thanks a lot, Jenny !

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!

Jenny has a beautiful yard, with a portion of it supervised by an old apple tree. Putting your RV up in that portion of her yard is incredibly peaceful, quiet and beautiful. It's not a place for a really big RV (difficult to get into that portion of the yard because you have to pass by the garage), but it was perfect for my 24 footer. Jenny supervised my passage past the garage (even getting up early-early in the am), which was a tremendous asset!

With a bottle of cold tea from Jenny, we sat at an outside table and got to know one another. After dinner, Jenny made her fire pit and fuel available. There, it's possible to listen to flocks of Canada geese flying overhead, the chirping of crickets, and watch the day fade away next to the crackling fire.

I had to make a quick and early getaway the next morning, but it would have been lovely to stay a while. Jenny offered help in picking the most picturesque route that fit my plans, and told me where to get the best deals on fuel. Wow!

Jenny travels with her own RV, so she's not always there. Be sure to plan early. Jenny's location and hospitality are wonderful!

Peaceful Spot

We spent one night at JennyA's back in July - our first-ever Boondockers Welcome stay - and were made to feel instantly welcome. The spot was quiet, peaceful, and convenient to the Berkshires. Recommended.
