Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We've enjoyed many years traveling in many types of RV equipment...from tent campers to large fifth wheels. We've traveled extensively in our native Colorado and all about the western US and into Mexico. We were also power boaters for years and owned a couple houseboats at Lake Powell. We've downsized now to a 23 ft. travel trailer which suits our needs completely.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Lots of experiences on the road in a variety of RVs. Also veteran powerboaters and houseboaters. We're potters and have our own home studio where my husband throws functional stoneware and some occasional artistic pieces; I do slab building. We have a natural gas kiln in the backyard. We've sold our pottery in various galleries. Now mainly selI custom orders to individuals. I am a multi-media artist, and concentrated on fiber arts and art quilting for several years. I make a lot of garments. When time permits we're pleased to show our studio. We're retired business people where we marketed office equipment, mainly medical records technology. I retired from a management position in a University Bookstore We've been winter snowbirds in variety of spots in Arizona and Southern California/Nevada. Done much travel in the Pacific Northwest and New Mexico. A couple RV trips in Mexico.

Peaceful night!

These excellent hosts greeted me upon arrival and helped me park my rig next to their driveway. I had a very restful night, thanks!

Welcoming hosts and great location

Appreciate CarolandDan as considerate and welcoming hosts. Enjoyed our conversations and communication, getting backed in and setup was easy but be prepared as side farthest from house is lower and needs boards or other to raise to level and drop-off to street is steep and need considerable jack extension.

Their neighborhood is quiet and all the neighbors we encountered waved and smiled, however we do think there is a competition to see who can mow their lawn closest to sunrise! ;-)

Grand Junction was our only 2nd visit on our grand tour of Utah and Colorado, we loved their downtown and restaurants in addition to the many local activities.

Lovely hosts

I had a really nice, easy stay here. The hosts were gracious and helpful, although not “too” helpful. As an independent person, I really appreciate that fine balance. The power and water were exceptionally convenient for hooking into. Nice neighborhood and I felt safe
And very welcomed. I highly recommend this host.

A Lifesaver

Dan and Carol are gracious hosts and provided water and a 30 amp hookup allowing us to run our AC. That was a real lifesaver as the night was extremely hot.

Lovely couple, great area

We enjoyed meeting the hosts and they were extremely helpful when we discovered a fault with out levelling system. Once we had got by that we were able to enjoy the area, visiting the Colorado Monument 20 mins away and some breweries. The hosts had kindly printed info on this for us, thank you ** Note for bigger rigs, we are 28' class A and took up almost all of the space available. The front of the driveway is quite a bit lower than the back so be prepared with blocks to raise the front **

Wonderful hosts!

We had a great stay at Graveled Spot. It was a welcome stay with 30amp hookup during a hot spell and after spending a month boondocking on BLM land in Utah! We enjoyed visiting with our wonderful hosts, and with their vast RV experience they gave us much needed advice for our future rig upgrade. Great stay and highly recommend!

Wonderful hosts in a great location!

This beautiful home on a neighborhood cul-de-sac was a wonderful respite. Caroldan welcomed us warmly and gave us great tips about the area. We enjoyed chatting with them on arrival. It was a great and comfortable stay. Another bonus, they are located not too far away from the Colorado National Monument which is an amazing destination of mountainous beauty. Thanks so much. We enjoyed and appreciated everything.
