Home bound waiting start being a nomad

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Mike and Loren have two little humans and work during the week but venture out on weekends to camp so we don't get very far. Once retired we plan to explore the US as much as we can. Loren is a teacher. Mike is a a quality control test engineer.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Loren has been camping and towing since birth. Her parents always had her out as a kid. Her father lives on property and also is an avid camper with tons of experience as well and he has traveled all over the US. Mike is a pretty handy guy and is tech savy. Mike & Loren have camping experience in tents, popup campers, vintage airstreams, and currently are in a Shadow Cruiser while working on their vintage Argosy.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

So far the driveway! haha! SOON! very very soon!

lwood's Hometown

When we are not out on an epic adventure, we live in a small farming community. Everyone knows everyone here. Plenty of sidewalks and golf courses. We are located 35 min southwest of Cleveland so we are close to all of the attractions like the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the "Emerald Necklace" of Cuyahoga Valley National Park, and not far from the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Close to Lake Erie and Cedar Point!

Gracious and friendly folks

We were welcomed as we were coming down the street. As our host was explaining to us about where and how to park, the neighbors were joking asking the host if she needed help to back in. All in good fun as we all got a laugh to start things out. We were invited to join the host and family for a cookout in the side yard. Great family that made us feel welcome and we appreciated that we did have to figure something out for dinner after being on the road all day
We enjoyed ourselves and highly recommended this host as we would definitely request to stay here again if we are ever going to be passing through again.

Lots of Charm and Hospitality

Although it was only an overnight stay to rest and recharge, we enjoyed the accommodations made by Iwood. This area of Ohio has quaint little towns with their own personality. Iwood has many options for the RV traveler and is big on making you feel relaxed and comfortable.

Level, Peaceful, Wonderful Hosts

First of all, the hosts are so friendly! After helping us park in the perfectly level spot, showing us hook up locations, and welcoming us, they gave us time to settle in and enjoy a short nap. Easy back-in site! It’s wonderful, because it’s in a nice neighborhood, but the trailer faced into lovely pine trees, giving a feeling of privacy. So nice!

After we settled, we joined the hosts and family in a nice visit in their yard. They are interesting and fun folks—we would definitely stay there again—next time for a bit longer to explore the area. A big thanks to our hosts for recommending a better way to reconnect with I-90 and continue our travels.

Lots of extras!!!

Friendly, inviting, helpful host!!
Great stay! Water, electricity and sewer all there and it was a super nice parking spot.
We sat outside last night and enjoyed company with our host.
We look forward to returning so we can actually explore Ohio.

GREAT family!

We had such a lovely time visiting with these folks and their two adorable kids! They were a lot of fun, and gave us the scoop on all the local eateries! Highly recommend stopping here if you can. Be aware that if your rig is very tall, you may have trouble fitting into the driveway under the power lines, but they were great about offering alternatives.

Really enjoyed our stay at LaGrange Courtesy Park. She spent time helping us back into the site.
They so generously provided everything needed. We were able to attend two family gatherings in the area. many came from several other states. We were also able to spend an evening visiting with our gracious hosts on the porch, while their two precious children, played in the yard.

Our First Boondockers Welcome Stay!

Wonderful hospitality! A big thank you to LWood and family for a perfect quiet night after a little bit of socializing in their back yard. This stay kicked off both a 3 week cross-country trip from western NY to northern CA, AND our intro to the Boondockers Welcome community. Perfect location, easy access, level pad, super-easy access to electricity, water and even clean-out (which happily we didn't need!). We slept great and hit the road fully energized. Thank you LWood! Hope to come back and experience more of your little town. Thinking we might never overnight at a Walmart again. Hooray for Boondockers Welcome!

Great Host!

Iwood was a great host! Very communicative, easy to get to, quiet neighborhood. Great spot for walking or biking and close to area attractions. I highly recommend Iwood/Lagrange Courtesy Park!
