Friendly visit with a fellow biker.

It was a pleasure to host Optimisticchris. We enjoyed our chats about our biking and boondocking experiences. He was a polite and friendly chap who was very tolerant of our visiting grandson! We wish him well in his current adventure and hope to meet up with him again.

Boondockers from Wisconsin

Very nice people, missed spending time due to my prior commitment. Maybe next time when they have more time to explore the area. Best of luck to you both.

A nice couple and a short visit !

The Optimisticchris couple were just here overnight, so it was a very short stay. Communication was excellent and I believe we helped them to see some of the sights on their way here through the BW website. They stated they wanted to come back when Covid was behind, the Valley was green (spring through fall) and they had more time. They're welcome anytime as we thoroughly enjoyed the short conversations with both of them.
