Shula and I retaired after our kids left home to have thier own familes ,Shula is an ex dancer and a dancing teacher and I was an Airline Employee.
We both were stationed in Greece,Italy and Germany for 3-4 years in each location, the kids learned in an American Overseas Schools and we all speak few languages.
We have 3 kids and 6 grandkids+another on the way...
In 2002 we packed a suicase and flew to Edmonton Alberta where we purchased our first rig ,F-250 7.3Lt 1994+ a 27' 5W with one slide and took a 5 months trip to Alaska, since then we are RVing every summer for 4-5 months,storing the rig at the end of each trip and flying home for the winter only to collect the rig in the next summer to explore new to us destinations.
Our travels can be seen on our blog (in English that always can be better) www.danyshula.blogspot.com
We love to hike,nature,history and meet people.
Unfortunatly I cannot ofer a place to park a RV (we do not have RV's in Israel,the country is to small, 5 hours drive from North to South and 20 minutes drive from East to West)
Wish you all many happy travels.

These folks were great guests and a real pleasure to have on our ranch. They shared so much with us about their lives and culture. It was incredible. They are always welcome here and we will look forward to their next visit. Shalom DanShula.
From the moment they pulled in to the driveway they were some of the friendliest people we've ever met. We had great conversations over a beer and some wood splitting! Danny & Shula offered their 'cheap' labor until our woodpile was done. If everyone was as nice as them the world would be at peace. Although they say they're going to quit RVing in 2 years, we hope they'll come for a stay again before they quit. Friends forever!! :)
Danny & Shula were a treat! Great conversation & an incredible Family Dinner invite! We hope to meet them camping next year:-)
All our guests have been wonderful to have, but danshula was the best so far. Completely self-sufficient and independent, they were no trouble at all to host. As guests, they were a delight. Stories of their full and adventurous lives filled many an hour, and it was great to join them in conversation over a few beers and some wonderful food. They are welcome back ANY TIME!
They are welcome back anytime, I know they may have a bum review, but we did not experience anything like that, they offered money for electricity and they were very friendly, we enjoyed nightly conversations and some good wine. We learned a lot about their country and its diversity, and shared an awesome meal, Great world travelers.
I would have hosted them for her cilantro mixture alone. They are an amazing couple and super friendly. I would recommend them to anyone. If I ever make it to Israel I'll look them up. Doubt it as I have many more destinations on my list first but perhaps. Thanks guys.
We enjoyed visiting and sharing stories, and learning.
You are welcome back anytime, wishing you safe travels Darwin and Linda
We seem to get quite a few visitors from outside the US. Danshula are from Israel, and are an interesting and fun couple. They stayed with us for 3 days. We had many good conversations about RVing and traveling and their life in Israel. Great guests, we would have them back any time.
I'm not sure what that one negative review is about. Danshula offered to pay me for electricity since they wanted to run the air conditioner (it was over 100F when they were here, and no shade). I declined their offer, and of course didn't expect any sort of "donation" at the end. Really a great couple, very unassuming, and fun guests.
Up until now, my previous guests that desired an electrical hookup have all left a donation. Nothing had to be said as it was a common courtesy to do so. BW now has a courtesy contract where guests agree to compensate their hosts for using hookups. In addition, I hand out my "Tips for a Good Stay" to my guests upon their arrival. I used the same language from BW's courtesy contract, which is $3-5 per day for power without using A/C and $5-10 if using A/C.
Danshula left WITHOUT making any donation. They stayed for three nights and ran their A/C in the hot weather. The reason I'm submitting this second reference is that I made the mistake of leaving the first reference before they left. If you are hosting them, I would recommend having a conversation with them upon their arrival about this subject. Let them know your expectations.
The second issue that bothered me was this. My son, a very skilled technician, spent around three hours fixing three problems with Danshula's RV. He saved them $200-$300 in labor costs for repairs. While Danshula thanked my son, he did not offer any compensation for his time.
There was a third annoying issue. After Danshula went sight-seeing, upon his return to our property he parked his truck in our driveway. His parking place was in front of his RV. I'm guessing he did so because at the time our driveway was shady and his spot was in the sun. Nevertheless, I had to ask him to move his truck so we could get our vehicles in and out of our driveway. I felt like we let the camel's head under the tent, and now the he wanted to move in.
Danshula was a great party to converse with, but unfortunately there were these issues as I have described above. I'm sure other hosts will enjoy them as guests, but as mentioned, make your expectations very clear.
By all means have Danshula as guests. We have immensely enjoyed learning about their home country, Israel. It turns out the Shula is a terrific cook with the result that we have had a two-family potluck for our dinners. They enjoy exploring new places, so be sure to give them tips about the best things to see in your given area.
We went for a 4.25 walk along the levies along our local rivers. They are in excellent physical condition and move at a brick pace. They are superb walking partners. Having Danshula as guests has enriched our lives just a little more.
Very good Guests and very interesting people to talk to. They really seem to appreciate there stay.
The danshula where great Guest, Dan and Shula stayed 4 days and where fun to have at RV Spot, We Welcome them back any time.
We had a spectacular time meeting and hosting Danny and Shula and a few of their extended family members. Insightful conversations of life in Israel and of their many travel adventures. They are kind, thoughtful and so very appreciative. It felt as if we were spending time with family. We highly recommend this couple to stay at your boon-docking spot. All will be truly rewarded.
Danny and Shula are great guest we have had great conversations and wine with them in the evenings while they are here they are welcome back any time
We had a fine time hosting Danshula. They stayed for a few days, and we had no worries leaving them here while we went out of town. It was truly a shame we were so busy during their stay.
We had great fun exploring the local area and I will forever cherish the memory of their visit. Be well, till we meet again and, Lechayim my friends...Randy
It was fun getting to know Dan and Shula and hearing about their home country. We shared meals and went shopping with them. They were great guests and we would welcome them back anytime!
We just hosted our first boondockers. They were a joy to have. Very interesting to visit with and showed us beautiful pictures of there country. If you get a chance, ask to see the picures, it's almost like visiting their country. After their visit, we wished we had joined Boondockers earlier. Happy travels, Danny and Shula. We are hoping our paths will cross again. Your always welcome with 2 kisses at our home.

We hosted Danny and Shula recently. They were so wonderful and fun to have around. They shared so much wonderful info about their home country, Israel. It was great to meet them and they were perfect guests.
We hosted these two Israelis. So interesting to visit and have around. They were easy to have around, did their own thing to prepare for their travels after picking up their RV. We would recommend them and would enjoy having them visit us again. We wish them safe travels as they explore North Oregon and Washington this summer.
Dan and Shula stopped by for a visit (rented a car to drive here from Toronto) and we enjoyed a wonderful couple of hours getting to know them. We welcome them back any time (with or without their RV). We were utterly fascinated by how different our backgrounds are and yet how much we have in common.
