Mike and Janine (along with our 2 indoor cats) are testing out the RV nomad lifestyle, after years of being part-time campers and full-time employees. We prefer to avoid crowded RV Parks and have authentic experiences with members of the communities we visit. We are fit and athletic retirees (age 68 and 62 in 2021) who love to bicycle, hike, kayak and fish. We're super-excited to be a part of Boondockers Welcome!
Janine has been a writer, marketer and bicycle advocate by profession. Mike was an engineer and a professional bicycle mechanic. Both are experienced bike riders/racers. Mike is an experienced RV owner.
Yes, we have two shy female indoor cats, Jeri and Squeaky, who prefer to experience new places through a window!
We're still pretty new to true boondocking. Ask us again in 6 months!
We have called Chico, a smallish city in northern CA, home for the last 25 or so years. From August 2019 to June 2021, we lived in western NY helping Janine's parents stay in their home. Now we are free to move about the country! But we still think of Chico as 'home base'.
Our 2019 Rockwood Roo, "Kanga" is a 22 ft hybrid Travel Trailer (about 25 ft with the bed ends out)! Our towing vehicle is Mike's pride and joy, a 2018 Ford F150, about 18 ft long We call it "Captain"
We were out of town and we’re not able to meet but we certainly hope j9rood will travel thru our area again in the future. They were great to communicate with and let us know when they arrived and again when they left. Next time we hope to have better weather for their stay.
