We are a full-time family of 2, Gary and Brenna Lile. We travel with our dog, a mini Golden Doodle, Gypsy Jewel.
We were born/raised in the Kansas City, MO area, but transferred our lives to rural Northern California for approximately 10 years before Gary retired from the power industry in the spring of 2020.
We do not use drugs or smoke. We do occasionally consume alcoholic beverages, but never to the point of intoxication. We do enjoy laughing. We have become night owls, but quiet ones.
Gary loves to cook on his smoker and is getting pretty good at it! We wouldn’t consider ourselves “experts” at much, but we have attempted and accomplished a number of different things over our time on this earth. Home improvement projects, gardening & drip systems, furniture restoration, rock painting. Brenna loves to play the piano and sing. We have recently purchased kayaks and are looking forward to spending some time in them. Also, any of us would be more than happy to pray for you!
We have mini GoldenDoodle, Gypsy Jewel, Born December 2020. She is well behaved, but obviously still being trained.
We haven’t done too much boondocking. We did stay at an Alpaca farm in NM that we loved. Other boondocking has just been quick overnight stays at BLM locations, Wal-Mart, Cracker Barrel, rest stops, etc...
We recently stayed for 4 nights at a farm of some friends we have know for 30 years!
2021 - we loved our stay at Walker’s Bluff Winery near Carterville, IL. Beautiful grounds and sweet staff members!
Fall of 2020, we stayed at a number of boondocking locations via Boondockers Welcome and Harvest Host. We have yet to have a “bad” host!
We are full time retired folks. Raised in the Kansas City, MO area. We lived in Red Bluff, CA for about 10 years. We have set our our domicile for taxes and voting in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. We winter in South Texas, near Corpus Christi.

Glad to be the first time host for these nice folks. Sadly we did not get to spend much time together but sure hope they enjoyed their first Boondocker's Welcome adventure. We hope they will continue to find BW a safe place to stay and would welcome them back any time we are available. Safe travels!
