Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We have jobs that lets us work from anywhere most of the year so we bought our first Class A in 2021 after some Class C & trailer travels. Our youngest 2 kids will graduate high school in the next 3 years and we're starting the travel we haven't been able to do raising 6 kids. We're quiet, but enjoy meeting new people and seeing new places. My wife just started painting and refinishing furniture again, and I'm ready to see the country privately from the road instead of from planes and taxis for business. Mostly it's just us, though the last 2 kids and their 2 dogs do go out with us once or twice a year.

Skills & Expertise to Share

We've traveled extensively domestically and abroad with work, church, and just for us but this is only our 2nd year RV traveling. Worked with my hands until I was 24 in the sign making business, pretty familiar with hand tools, still learning to be handy with RV's, but not a beginner. Driven up to 30' trucks all over the states between CA and NYC and managed live corporate, political, and private events, also in all the states below that line, and most of New England, Chicago, Detroit as well. Over the years my wife has been in business management on the accounting, tax, and finance side. We're parents of 6 kids and travelled with them quite a bit, though we haven't had young children in a decade (except our first grand child), that pretty much took up all of our spare time. We're introverts, but pretty approachable, so feel free to ask.

TheShelts's Pets

We have 2 tiny Yorkiepoos that only travel with us when our 2 kids do, very rarely. Leo is 6lbs, and we adopted his 1 year younger sister, River, in early 2021, she's about 4 lbs right now as a 5 month old puppy. We never let them run free, inside the motorhome or caged under the awning or always leashed if we're walking, so small they're in danger from birds of prey. They're excited to meet everyone.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

If you can get into Assateague Park on MD side, reserve extremely early, it's beautiful and the wild horses roam right through the camp grounds, they have more rights than we do, and of course you're right on the Atlantic Ocean beach and you can get an OSV permit if you have a vehicle that will drive on the sand. We've only done campsites or mooch docking with family up to now, but the Chesapeake Bay & Eastern Shore has a few promising places that we're getting ready to try out spring of 2021.

Great guests

Very nice people. We were very busy working on projects and didn't get to talk much, but they were very friendly. They surprised us with gifts....very thoughtful. Welcome anytime.
