A recently retired emergency manager and a nurse practitioner. We are members of the NOMADS (nomadsumc.org) and travel in our RV to mission projects across the US. Most of our work is disaster rebuild. We are invited into disaster areas usually 9 month to a year after initial impact to help homeowners do the final rebuild necessary to return to some sort of normalcy.

We enjoyed hosting for Nomads_2 and hope they will return again some day. We admire them for the work they are doing with the Methodist Church association, Friendly couple that also brought some laughter for us!
Pushed the submit button too soon for the reference! Wanted to add:
Even though they were absent they sent us a lot of recommendations for their area, we got a chance to check out some of them and had a lot of fun!
The hosts let us stay here even in their absence and warned their kind neighbor who showed us the spot when we arrived after dark.
Beautiful hilly area with breathtaking views on the way there.
Quiet spot for the night and safe for our kids to run around.
I did not anticipate how beautiful this location would be, in the foothills of what heads north eventually into the Blue Ridge Mountains. The area is a rural farming community with a beautiful but twisting and turning drive into Birmingham. The hosts were busy with their service work, but checked in frequently via email even alerting me to the weather, and the relatives on the country road welcomed me and helped me figure out my way around. Thank you for the lovely stay!
My wife and I were traveling from PEI to southern Mississippi in Jan. 2013. One of our boondocking experiences was at Remlap on a rainy day. Getting to the boondocking site was a bit of an effort, since it was out-of-the way, but we were very glad we persevered! We were allowed to park in the driveway of an aunt, who made us a tasty cinnamon bread, as well as sourdough buns! We spent a quiet night. The next morning, our hosts invited us for breakfast. Then, since the next leg of our journey was undecided re: where we would stay, our host phoned her mom in Tuscaloosa and arranged for our stay in her driveway, which we did. There's no guarantee of bread, rolls, or breakfast if you choose to stay at Remlap, but I think you'll find it a very pleasant stay.
