Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I live about 11 miles NW of Boston in a very busy suburb. I am longing for the day I can become a snowbird and get away from the cold and snowy winters. I love nature and traveling to national/state parks and other unspoiled places.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Good with computers (PCs); though I own a Mac I'm not very comfortable with it. I'm an amateur birder. I make jewelry. I also make my own toothpaste, deodorant, potpourri, lotions, salves, and other natural things using essential oils, coconut oil, baking soda, spices and other natural ingredients. I have a couple of blogs though I don't write as much as I'd like to. This year I winterized my own rig (yay me!) after finally finding some simple, easy to follow instructions (thank you RV101!).

Favorite Boondocking Locations

State/national parks, Walmart & other free overnight parking places. I haven't done a lot of boondocking, but hope to when I go full time.
