Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I am a mother of three young adults. We live in Connecticut. I'm originally from Finland, my husband is American. We recently purchased a truck camper hoping to gradually extend out trips across the country. Two of our children are in military, so we are also hoping to visit them. We are not comfortable flying due to the pandemic, which was the primary reason for our purchasing a truck camper at this time.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I am a social scientist to the core, enjoy learning about different cultures. I love to study the geography of each area we visit and continuously explore people's life styles and cultures. My husband has extensive knowledge about biology and natural history. He reads a lot about politics and economy. We are not very practical, although my husband is a very good cook and enjoys cooking.

Saara's Pets

We have two mixed breed dogs, Cosmo and Aino. Cosmo is about 70 lbs. and Aino about 36 lbs.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

We are hoping to make it New Mexico, and surrounding states. We also like Northern New England.

Saara's Hometown

Pomfret, CT. We live in a semirural area and enjoy the surrounding nature.

Very pleasant guests

Saara and company were great guests; quiet, respectful and dogs were well-behaved and controlled. We enjoyed sharing stories and meeting some of their family. We hope they come back anytime they’re in the neighborhood!

Quick overnighters

They were a lovely couple & had 2 cute doggie companions. Didn’t get to spend much time with them on there short overnight visit but very nice & pleasant what little time we did have contact. Would certainly welcome these Boondockers back again.
