Dotnorthman's Pets

A mellow 10 year old sheltie male born in a Texas.....Somewhat of a twang in his accent, but hardly noticeable.
Very friendly, not aggressive. Well behaved and usually stays pretty close by.
Seems to like women more than me. Can’t blame him for that.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Mostly warm climate areas during the winter months along west coast, southwest, midwest and southern areas. I have family in CA, CO, TX, KY and FL so find myself traveling between those areas, but I’m looking to explore area of the country that I’m not familiar in and the scenic wonders that they have.

Dotnorthman's Hometown

Origional my born in Florida. Moved to west coast and spent next 30 years there. Moved to Alaska in 1998 and love it. Looking to spend winters in lower 48 visiting daughters and grandkids plus extending my hunting and fishing activities.

Welcome anytime

Oh the hours we could've spent shooting the breeze with this guy! So knowledgeable and friendly! Benji and I just loved Jack too. Of course they're welcome any time and I've made a friend for life!!

Great time shooting the breeze with this young timer and his sheltie Jack! I've got a feeling we won't be strangers.

Perfect spot in Wasilla with accomadating host

We had an absolute blast here. Dale was so helpful and very accomadating. He gave us great tips for places to see and places to fish! Such a wonderful experience.

Great Host!

Our stay here was great. The site was a great spot with ample space. The Wasilla location has easy access to everything you would need. The host was great and we became friends fast. He is good at communicating and response time is great. His pups were sweet and welcomed our dog to their awesome yard. We hope to visit again in the future and have invited him to BW at our home when we return. Thank you D. For being a fun and awesome host.

Thank you for accommodating us

The host was out of town but his brother stepped in and Accommodated us exceptionally well. We were able to get a level spot. The short drive down the road is in very good shape. Thank you very much for accommodating us even with though you were out of town. Sorry we didn’t get to meet you.

Thanks SO Much!!

Thanks So much, D! for taking us in on such short notice. Dortmorthman's place is in a great location... quiet and secluded...and no bright lights nearby. We had a great time sharing experiences and travel stories. Thanks a bunch!! J&M

Great guy

So far we have met some really cool people. Dotnorthman is near the top. Very welcoming but allows for your privacy. It was really awesome to sit and have a drink and have some good dialogue with him. Above and beyond.

Stayed one night on our way to the Kenai Peninsula. Rustic location, easy access, good conversation.
