We loved hosting Go Solar!! Very interesting and well traveled couple. We enjoyed the time we had to socialize and hear about their travels. They have an absolutely beautiful rig and we learned a lot about the sprinter chassis that we will be getting soon. Hope to connect again down the road.

Neat couple

Definitely enjoyed their visit and I was able to gain a lot of knowledge on some of the tricks of being a full timer. Sure hope our paths cross again.

Delightful seasoned travelers

What wonderful guest we were able to accommodate here at our farm. They are what BoonDockers Welcome is all about, meeting and hearing of their travels was so inspiring. “Living the Dream”.
Highly recommend this couple and their beautiful RV. Come back to “The Hook” anytime.
Safe travels!

Great communication and friendly folks

I was sorry I did not get a chance to meet these folks in person but their communication was excellent and it was a joy to interact with them. I hope we get to meet in person soon.


October 2020

Blown Away!

They were the perfect first guests! Not only are they the nicest people, but we learned so much! Not only about full timing, but fantastic insights on BW! He shared some pretty important resources in both websites and APPs. I’ll be spending the weeks ahead diving into those! We absolutely hope to see them again whether next season as their hosts, or on the road in the years ahead!


September 2020

Wish we could give this couple 10 thumbs up!

It was so enjoyable hosting for this couple! Even though we were quite busy during their stay, we still found a little time to visit. I wish we had more time! I so enjoyed talking with the wife. They were very patient with Molly, our Irish Wolfhound. Honestly, they are the ideal guests! They are welcome back any time!!

Nice couple

They stayed here for 3 days while they toured the area. They were kind enough to bring me some new brochures from area attractions. They have lots of RV stories to share.


June 2020

Friendly and interesting

We learned that we have some relatives in common in a small town in Iowa! Talk about a small world 🌎. They have a wide range of interests and although they have visited the area before there were still new things to do!

Very nice couple

It was good to see this couple again, unfortunately (in one sense) they were heading to Mayo in Rochester. I did hear the results at Mayo was good news. Hopefully the next time I see them there will be NO health issues! They are always welcome back. They are a quiet, neat couple and easy to converse with.


September 2019

Well-traveled, delightful couple!

Go Solar and Be Free are experienced, well-traveled RVers and enthusiastic conversationalists. We have an Escapees chapter in common, so had crossed paths before, but this was they first time they had a chance to stop at our host site and we thoroughly enjoyed their visit.

Go Solar and Be Free were great guests! We had time to sit and relax and share stories. They were kind enough to text me all the tidbits of information I did not want to forget that we had discussed. Very friendly couple that we would love to have back for another visit.


June 2018

Very nice couple!

We had the pleasure of hosting Go Solar and Be Free for one night. Because of prior commitments, we were not home much so did not have much opportunity for socializing. We did much texting though, and they were very kind and curteous. We hope they stay again as they travel back through this area.
