Happily retired and enjoying our life

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are retired and enjoy camping, riding our Harley Trike, family and buying and selling antiques. We go to 8 - 10 shows a year where sometimes we buy and sometimes we sell. We belong to a local camping group. the Mobile Roadrunners. We meet and camp once a month and enjoy pot luck, games and charity work. We are part of Truckstop Ministry in our little town. We have been married almost 10 years. We went to school together and used to hold hands in the hall between classes. Then of course we went our separate ways. We reconnected at the 40th class reunion and 6 months later we got married and have never been happier!
We love to travel and are always ready for our next adventure.
We have 5 acres and plenty of room for Boondockers! We also have electric connections for one 30 amp and one 50 amp. We are so excited about hosting! We don't have pets, but don't mind campers with well behaved pets.

Skills & Expertise to Share

My husband is a retired Barber and I am a seamstress. I love to cook and feed people! He loves working on junk and repairing antiques. We also put our heads together and build many one of a kind items that we sell.

TomandJudi's Pets

No. We don't mind campers with well behaved pets tho.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

We have never boondocked, but we are certainly looking forward to doing that. We also look forward to meeting seasoned boondockers!

TomandJudi's Hometown

We live in Grand Bay, Alabama. If you have ever driven on Interstate 10 through Alabama, We are exit 4. You were within 5 miles of our house. We are a small town, but we can offer 1 grocery store, 3 Dollar stores, plenty of gas stations, lots of churches and some of the best fresh vegetables and fruits around. Especially watermelons in the summertime! We live on the property that my parents bought when I was a baby. We are sorta out in the country, but we do have neighbors and they are all good! We have 5 acres. We have some pecan trees, satsuma, lemon, blood orange, blueberry, figs and Japanese Persimmons. We also have a coin operated washer and dryer on the property that guests are welcome to use while here with us. Needless to say, we love to travel, but we love to come home.

Enjoyable Stay

We had a great stay on the hosts’ property! Upon arrival, they greeted us at the end of their driveway to make sure we didn’t miss it. They were very kind and accommodating. There was plenty of space for parking and relaxing outdoors. Coin-operated washer and dryer was available on site. Their property — located on a quiet road — is close to many sites we wanted to see, including USS Alabama, downtown Mobile (Dauphin Street), and Dauphin Island. We’d absolutely stay here again.

Wonderful Quiet!

Judi&Tom exemplify Southern hospitality! Their home is charming, and so are they. I stayed here in a travel trailer, which Tom graciously helped back in so I could hook up to their electrical connection. I and my cats enjoyed watching and listening to the birds and squirrels -- and very little else in this lovely setting that is surprisingly close to the major Interstate highway, but you'd never know it. I will be back!

restful and laid back

Tom and Judy were excellent hosts, welcoming us and helping us get set up, and answering our questions about where we could locally find places. We would gladly come back!

Nice

Nice quiet and level spot. WiFi is too far away from the house to reach the spot though.
We had a nice night at this location.

Wonderful friendly and helpful hosts

After a long day of travel, we are very grateful to be greeted by friendly faces. Judi escorted us to the site accompanied by 5 delightful, energetic great grandsons. Tom helped us set up and gave us some local dinner suggestions. Lovely couple, we hope to see them again.

Sweet quiet spot

Despite the thunderstorms and continuous rain, this spot is TERRIFIC! Easy access off the interstate and hosts that met me at the driveway and escorted me a wonderful place to stay. Quiet, flat, and open. Lovely folks. I will definitely return!

Joy to visit!

We were guided to the home of Tom and Judy by Judy on the phone with Tom waiting at the entrance to wave us down. Although a little tight, the entry to their property is very doable with our 33’ type A and attached tow dolly. A storm had made some parts of the property inaccessible which included the area of the 50 amp hookup. We ended up staying under several Magnolia trees at the side and front of the lush green acreage. Very quiet the entire time. Tom has a very heavy Alabama drawl we both loved listening to. Having turned down an invite to a musical evening at their church the night before, in the morning my request for prayers as we continued on our way the next morning was met with enthusiasm. Although they don’t wear their faith ‘on their sleeves’ Judy humbly offered up a short prayer for us. Wish we had more time with these two but we had a pressing schedule to keep.

couldn’t be better

we were driving across the panhandle to new orleans and stayed overnight with TomandJudi. they personally guided us to a nice level spot that was very easy to back into. they even allowed us water & power hookup. their place is a short drive to dauphin island, which they recommended, and our kids absolutely loved. we went to sleep with windows open enjoying bug sounds with a great starry sky with little light pollution. our kids played on their swing set as we broke camp the next day. we’d highly recommend them for the hospitality.

Great stay at a great location

Lush green property, perfect weather for our stay. The hosts were friendly and very accommodating. The hosts were kind enough to provide local sightseeing recommendations. We took advantage of their suggestions to see Dauphin Island and Fort Gaines, which was thoroughly enjoyable. It was a blessing to meet the hosts.

Welcoming

Our family with 3 young boys only stayed 1 night on our way to Gulf Shores SP, but we very much enjoyed our hosts company and wished we could have checked out some of the local sites. Thank you so much for the lovely time!

Nice overnight stay

A great overnight stay as I traveled from FL to New Orleans. TomandJudi were more than gracious helping us park and get settled in the pouring rain. Wish the weather had’ve been better for socializing! I hope to pass through again and recommend this stay fo anyone passing through the area.

Southern Hospitality

TomandJudi were the best. They treated us like family and invited us to meet with their camping group at a seafood restaurant for delicious food and great conversation. They are prime examples of what makes BW so great! It's a half hour from downtown Mobile and we got the chance to enjoy the country life and explore Mobile. At the Mardi Gras Carnival Museum we learned the Mobile was the first to have the Mardi Gras Carnival and still has it annually. The USS Alabama is a must-see as well!

We hope to see TomandJudi again!

Wonderful hosts. Some new friends!

We had a wonderful time in Grand Bay, close to Dauphin Island where we spent a day at the beach. Tom and Judi were more than gracious. We had a great spot for the rig with good hookups. We would definitely recommend staying here. Be sure and ask them about Fast Track!

Great Travel Stop

We weren't able to get a lot of time to talk due to the one night stop over. Very helpful and accommodating couple. Sure enjoyed and appreciated the southern hospitality.
Accessible location just a few miles off the interstate. We will definitely keep this site and hosts in mind the next time we are passing through.

So friendly and helpful

Tom and Judi were awesome!
They met us at the end of the driveway and led us to our spot and we had a nice chat with them. Laundry on site was an added bonus. It rained a ton while we were then and we ended up getting stuck in the mud and Tom rescued us!

Would definitely stay again.

Thank you T&J!

Wonderful stay, great hosts.

Tom and Judi were great hosts. They got us settled in, then came and visited around the campfire (propane).
Unfortunately our visited was only one night, but we would have liked to visit longer.
We really enjoyed our stay at this host. We would stay here again when in the area.

The site was fantastic, very quiet and clean, the hosts were excellent! Judi met us out front by the road after I missed the turn initially and had to go around the block. We were able to visit Dauphin Island and take the ferry to Gulf Shores. Fantastic visit!!

Sweet Home Alabama

Southern charm and hospitality! Charlie and I were greeted warmly when we arrived and TomandJudi made sure we had everything we needed during the unusual cold and wet weather.if you're traveling close by, you won't be disappointed. They even have a coin operated, reasonably priced, washer and dryer available for boondockers!

Short, nice stay on a cold night

We arrived in late afternoon during a recent cold snap. Our hosts met us upon arrival and were helpful getting us settled. They seemed like really nice folks. We didn’t have much of a chance to visit as it was late, cold and, you know, that covid thing.

This was a great place to spend the night and we really appreciated being plugged in on cold night. We would definitely stay here again.

Very nice hosts!

TomandJudi were great! Very nice couple!! They allowed us to park our 35 ft. Class A with 20 ft. trailer attached in their yard. It's nice and quiet where they live and we got a good night's sleep.
Be aware that you must navigate a dirt driveway with large holes and ruts to get to the grassy parking spot in the back.
TomandJudi stood outside and guided us into the spot which was a big help!

Loved our time here at TomandJudi! We were welcomed upon arrival and shown to our spot! We didn’t explore too much as were working. Loved meeting you all, and thank you for opening your homes to us!

Gracious Host

So grateful for the warm welcome and peaceful night. There were lots of birds at this site and a sparrow thought he found a mate in our side mirror..He made quite a ruckus. The bluebirds and cardinal were delightful.

Southern Alabama Hospitality

Come on down to South Alabama has a great setup for BW guests. They have 50amp available w/water if needed which we took advantage of for the 5 days we we're there. There are even coin operated washer/dryers available. The location also ample space for others who do not need to hookup and all of the space is big rig friendly. We were greeted by the hosts upon arrival, escorted to our parking spot and offered any assistance we might need. Would recommend this host to anyone traveling through the area.

Truly a special visit! We felt like family coming to stay. We were greeted so warmly right from the start and loved getting to know our hosts. They gave us some great ideas of things to see in nearby Mobile and we had such a great time. Thanks so much!

Warm Southern Hospitality

Our camp hosts are wonderful people who love serving others. They gave us a warm greeting as they met us at the end of their driveway guiding us in to position. We got a great night of sleep - very quiet area. We snuck out quietly in the morning and didn't want to disturb them, so we want to give a big thank you to them from us. Hopefully our paths will cross again in the future. God bless you both.

Great out of the way place and near the gulf

I missed the drive way and had to go down the road to make a turn and came back and their grandson was waiting for me to make sure I didn’t miss it again. Nice fairly level area with power and water. Really nice folks who said they have been busy with BD’s since joining BW.

Super Hosts

Easy in and out with lots of space to maneuver. Hook ups a bonus as well. Plenty of things to do in the area. It was great getting to know these people and hearing about all of the charitable endeavors they are involved in other than hosting travelers. Just like every boondocker host we have met so far, these are the most generous and giving people you will meet. We loved the peaceful setting and the warm hospitality. Thanks and we will surely see you again.

Perfect hosts

Didn't get to speak to the hosts very much after the day we arrived, however TomandJudi were there to welcome us and show us where to park, where to plug in and showed us the laundry if we needed it. There grandson even cut down a limb that was kind of low at our parking area. TomandJudi told us different sights to see in the area. The epitome of southern hospitality. Great hosts, would definitely recommend. We also asked to stay one more night and our hosts couldn't have been more gracious.

Quiet Countryside

We were greeted and personally escorted in for our brief overnight stay. There was ample space on their five acres for our 40’ bus and 20’ Jeep toad. We had evening plans in the area but would have liked to kick back and get to know this couple better. We really appreciated the stay at this quiet location with a cheerful friendly host.

Nice and quiet

Because of our size we disconnected our toad and visited before bringing the coach. TomandJudi warmly welcomed us and showed us options for parking. We did not need the hookups they can provide so parked near the second driveway (the best). We explored the area a bit but really just relaxed and enjoyed the much needed downtime. Dark country area perfect for stargazing at night. We will definitely return when in the area again!

Quick overnight, spoke with the hosts briefly. Many different homes on the property. Driveway is unmarked would suggest calling the hosts prior to arrival to clarify where to turn in to property

Quiet Spot, Wonderful Hosts

This was our first BW stay and it will be hard to top! TomandJudi were very hospitable! The spot was quiet and level, hook ups were available if we needed them. The only thing negative I can say is that, since Judi made us homemade persimmon bread, we are now addicted and will probably never find it as good as hers!!! ☺️

Awesome Stay/Fantastic Hosts

Awesome stay with Come on down to South Alabama. We arrived and driving in took out a cable due the height of our rig (13.5'). Didn't phase hosts a bit. We were directed to a location, got parked and easily setup. (FYI, they have a second entrance with no height restrictions that we used for our exit). The hosts are super welcoming and very hospitable. We cut our stay short due to Hurricane Zeta but hope to come back again next year and stay a little longer in order see some of the sights around Mobile and the Gulf Shore.

Yesterday was our VERY first everything !!! Traveled from mid Florida to pick up our trailer in Mississippi. YAHOOOOO. Our dream came true. Tom and Judi are the nicest, down to earth people I (Marcy) personally have met in a long time. Super helpful advice. Might even consider doing an anniversary there next year. Hopefully they will have a spot for us. Thanks for making us feel welcome.

We had a tire blow-out and were not able to keep our scheduled stay here. This host was very sympathetic and understanding. I do hope we can stop my here someday on future trips in their area.
