Do you know or have you hosted this user?

On my own after a long marriage. I am a retired Navy Chief - spent 23 years maintaining aircraft and training sailors how to work on them.

More or less into a semi-retired mode to travel and do some work on the side (RV Tech). I would like to spend as much time in my RV as possible ... which includes seeing places I have never been or never had the time to see.

Got my first RV in late 2019 (the 2306 MiniLite) ... and attended RV Tech school in Elkhart in early 2020. Have been working as a mobile tech ever since then.

I enjoy meeting people and sharing tales about where I've been, what I've done, etc ... and hearing the same from others.

Quiet, unobtrusive guest

We enjoyed having DHodge boondock with us. Did not see much of him except when we invited him to share our campfire. We enjoyed hearing about his travels and he would be welcome to stay again.

Quiet and respectful of my property. It was good to have him visit the camp fire with other guests one night. I would definitely have him back again. DHodge, thank you for your military service.

Great guest

Enjoyed the visit. Very quiet guest. We didn't even hear him leave in the morning. He is welcome to stay again if he is back this way.

Ideal guest!

Self-reliant, which I appreciated since I regrettably had to be gone overnight. Would have enjoyed visiting more had time permitted.

Welcome Courteous and Respectful Guest

Dave and his daughter made a brief one night stop and they were a pleasure to host. Unfortunately rain cut our opportunity to visit short but we did enjoy getting to know them and would welcome them back anytime.

DHODGE, Becky and I thank you for your long service to our country!! As a former naval aviation, VA squadron person myself many, many years ago (6 years and two extended MED cruises on the USS America, CVA-66), I can appreciate your sacrifices! Becky and I are delighted to be able to provide SPAGHETTI'S ROOST to BOONDOCKERS and particularly to Veterans of our US armed services who protect our freedoms on an ongoing basis. Your conduct during your visit was as expected of a Veteran and a BOONDOCKER resulting in your being welcome at any time that you are in the area. Beck & George
