Active couple excited to go van camping

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are a mostly-retired couple who loves outdoor activities and travel, we've been married for 40 years, our two kids have long-since moved out. Bill is an engineer and musician (saxophone) and Alice has done a bit of everything including woodcarving. We've tent-camped, hiked and biked for decades but recently decided to upgrade to the comforts of a camper van when we travel. Bought our first van in May 2020 and converted it into a camper over the next few months.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Bill : saxophone (rhythm and blues!), engineering, computers, bicycle touring.
Alice: woodcarving, gardening, cooking, very handy, good people-person!

Very Informative folks

Very nice folks. Happy to have hosted them and hopefully may see them again.

Downsized their home base, near the Atlantic Ocean, and are exploring our great country.

They are traveling in a class B van they completely built out themselves. Many great ideas and fine workmanship, too. They can be comfortable any place they stop the RV.

Big on hiking and they did a lot of that. Many good trails around here.

Mindful, friendly and fun

Great couple. We enjoyed their visit. They stayed for three nights and were very careful about masking up and social distancing. We had several nice conversations. They were very quiet and respectful of the property. I’d host them again anytime.

What a blessing to see a lovely couple who is fully experiencing the joys of using their custom R.V. This couple is extremely enjoying a unit that they have nicely outfitted with all that is needed to enjoy an extended road trip.I’m glad they chose “Heaven’s View” to spend a portion of their journey. In our conversation we learned that we have a lot in common and not just in our R.V. experiences. I hope they enjoy safe travels and are welcome back any time they are in this area.

Great Stay!

B+A stayed with us on a chilly but pleasant November weekend. They are a great couple, friendly and fun to talk to, respectful of social distancing and appreciative of the opportunity to stay. And did I mention their recently converted van - which they did themselves - is fabulous! Welcome back any time!
