Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Hubby and I live in rural CT and after forced retirement(economic downturn)we discovered the beautiful USA and ways of fugal travel. We have been doing such for 10 years. We now have B3. We traveled 5 years, 48 states,70,000 miles(a little Mexico and Canada)in Baby B taking 2 week - 3 month trips. We decided to buy a bigger rig, Big Boy, to interpretive host volunteer in some of those beautiful places. Four years(30,000 miles)later being away 3/4 of the 4 years we purchased B3 and are now back in CT but still traveling some. Must be in the blood!
Carol has a background in accounting, teaching and art (paints when she can). Hubby was in CT manufacturing (a thing of the past). We raised 5 children and paid our taxes. Traveling for 10 years was not planned but the best experience, besides raising a family, we have done.
Carol volunteers at Weir Farms NHS in Wilton, CT and hubby, a beekeeper, is keeping up the homestead.....and we have learned to welcome the world into our world. Come visit on your next travel through New England. We have a pond and a nice forested rural setting 15 minutes off I-84 so come rest and relax.

Quiet, beautiful and welcoming hosts.

The site was easy to find is located in a quiet large level site next to a pond. This was a fantastic spot was we traveled from Nova Scotia to Virginia to get some rest in a SAFE, welcoming place. The host were welcoming and offered advice and suggestions for our route south. Stayed here on the way south and liked it so much that we planned our return trip to spend another night. Highly recommended.

Great hosts & a wonderful visit

We stayed with John & Carol for two days in September 2015. There is plenty of room to accommodate any size rig with easy in & out. Although there are no hookups they had no objections to us running the generator to recharge the batteries. We also enjoyed their company very much & they shared a lot of local knowledge with us. Thanks again, Marlindy
