Get help from your host during special times

This is a special time. I came here just like returning to my own home. I extended my stay for two days and added a burden to the owner. I am very grateful to him, and I also learned a lot about my country Things, and get his recommendations, see the wonderful scenery. I will come back if I have the chance, I think my host and I have become close friends.
I will put the video I shot here and share it with you. In the days of fighting the epidemic, I hope everyone is safe, healthy and happy. God bless you.

They were an enjoyable and gracious couple.

Unfortunately we didn't get to spend a lot of time with them due to trying to keep them safe. My wife and I had been to Daytona bike week and although we have no signs of the virus we decided to keep our distance so they if we have been exposed we didn't infect them. They even offered to let us stay and ride out the pandemic.

I pull a 5th wheel with a semi so I am very long and they had plenty of space.

We would definitely recommend them and my come back if we make it to Florida again.

Great and Interesting Host

We were attending the Lakeland Balloon Festival and Tagalong graciously hosted us. We have common interests in Disaster Relief and other ministries. I wish we had more time to visit but our schedule did not allow. I hope Tagalong comes our way as we would love to host them at our place.

Nice stay

We enjoyed meeting Terry and he was a great host. Very friendly and shared information about the area and offered a level spot for our one night stay over. We felt safe and enjoyed conversation with Terry and another on of our fellow travelers parked next to us. Sharon was still recovering from recent health issues, so did not meet her, but enjoyed stories of their travel and church mission activities.

Very welcoming!

Our kids had a blast staying here and playing with other kids there at the same time. The street is pretty quiet, but there are no sidewalks out in the neighborhood if you are a walker. We enjoyed some of the local attractions they recommended and appreciated all the insider knowledge. Thanks so much!

Friendly and welcoming

Even though this was a cul-de-sac, our host was right there to welcome us and direct us on where to park. T&S were very welcoming and we enjoyed our conversations with them. We had a lovely, restful stay.

Warm, friendly, quiet & level! What more could you ask for?

We had a great two night stay! A brief moment of questioning as we turned our 41' motorhome with towed into the residential cul-de-sac was quickly quieted when Terry came out to meet us with a bright friendly smile and helped back us into our very roomy spot. The ground was level and hard-packed. Very good shade which is so nice on a warm Florida day! The neighborhood is quiet and not far from food, shopping and activities. Our hosts were kind and gracious and were wonderful with our young daughter and our German Shepherd! I think our dog may have liked to have stayed there with them! ♥️. Thank you so much for a lovely stay - we look forward to seeing you again down the road!!

Nice 6 day stay

Terry & Sharon are delightful hosts. It was daunting at first as we drove into a residential area and ended on a cul de sac. But Terry was right there with his bright welcoming smile and guided us into our site. This was our first time boondocking so we were surprised they provided 30 amp service and water if we needed them. We also met some seasoned Boondockers and picked up some good advice. Next time we are in the area we will be staying here.

Great visit

We stayed at this site for 3 nights. What a pleasant couple! He was right there when we arrived to help us back in. He had a whole list of interesting things to do in the area. And such great suggestions! We enjoyed conversations with both of them. Thank you for your hospitality- it was great to meet you both!
PS - we did make it to Circle B. Loved it! Very, very interesting. Very good suggestion!!

Warm welcome!

Thank you so very much for your hospitality!! We really enjoyed a quiet night despite the storm! We are so sorry we did not get to say goodbye and that we were not very social this time with not feeling the best. Hopefully we will meet again and have a chance to make up for it!
Thank you so much for inviting us to your home!!

Thankful for these amazing hosts

We just HAD to meet these hosts. They are founding members who have been welcoming traveling RVers as thier guests since the first week Boondockers Welcome was born. That's almost 8 years....and in Florida where they get lots of requests! We cannot thank them enough.
They gave us a quiet night after a great visit. They have a wealth of information about the area too. You'll want at least two days here.

Thank you to our gracious host!!

Our host at Tagalong was very friendly, kind, and gracious. He assisted us in backing our RV into position, and came by to visit later. We thoroughly enjoyed his company and conversation even though it was somewhat limited by circumstances.

Thank you so much my friend!
God bless you and your lovely wife!!

Second time we visit Tagalong

Second time we visit Tagalong :)
We visited the surroundings this time.

This host was so helpful, positive and flexible I was blown away.

We had several discussions, Terry is a charming person. As we work on the road we had a lot of work during our visit. We decided to go back next week to visit the places our host told us about. A place that I recommend to you. Lots of flora surrounds the property and our host has extensive experience of the plants that live there.

Thank you

Friendly host, with a level parking space.

Had a great stay at Taglong's property. Host where very friendly and knowledgable about the area around their property. Property was very easy to access, and is on a cul de sac, so road noise is very minimal.

They offered us a 110 outlet for electric, but we went ahead and let another RV'er use it. They can accommodate multiple rigs at once. (Three plus there's while we where there).

Had a great time chatting with them, and look forward to stopping back in the future.

Great references!

Tagalong has a wealth of knowledge and is more than happy to share. Talked about all sorts of RV ministry opportunities. They also shared lots of info about their community. Despite the neighborhood fireworks on New Year's Eve this was a very quiet and restful stop. Hope to stop by again in the future.

Wonderful host and easy parking

How fortunate we were to park at this location. Terry was very gracious and helpful, sharing tips for locale attractions and other opportunities for boondocking outside Florida.
My family enjoyed the stay and hope to return later. There are two spots to park, we were on the west side of the palm trees, it’s pretty level if you back up most of the way.

Pleasant and informative

This was only my second time boondocking but everything went well. Tagalong greeted me upon arrival and helped me back into their space at the end of a cul de sac. He is very knowledgeable about the area and suggested that I visit the nearby wildlife reserve. I had some free time the next day so I took him up on his offer to drive me there so I didn’t have to disconnect the RV. It was a wonderful experience hiking all afternoon in the church of nature, up close and personal with beautiful birds, gators, flora and fauna. It was a photographers paradise. Enjoy!

Great place for rest!

Had a wonderful time with Tagalong. They were so kind and welcoming. We showed up later in the evening and they were still up to help get us in our spot. Offered power and water for us to use. It was a blessing being able to stay with them. Would certainly recommend staying if your ever in the area.

Wonderful Hosts

We stayed with Terry & Sharon for a couple of nights and appreciated their hospitality. Nice site, easy access and the information they shared was very appreciated. Would highly recommend this location.


Leah and Karen

March 2015

Wonderful hosts

Sharon and Terry met us on the road, gave us our choice of spots, hooked us up to power, and invtied us up to the porch for a visit once we were all set up. Very welcoming.

They recommended a nature preserve, biking trails, and a local museum which were all worth visiting.

We felt very welcome and enjoyed our visits, while also being given our privacy to tour and relax as we saw fit.

The roaming chicken family kept us entertained.

February 2015

I think these two have spoiled us for any other Boondockers welcome hosts!

They meet us on the road to direct us in. A real nice location in a quiet neighborhood. Plenty of room and we are their biggest rig to date! They love to talk with you about shared interests, and know the area real well, but acknowledge your privacy. Neighborhood chickens roaming about are very pretty but do crow in the morning. Didn't bother us at all. Follow their directions not the GPS as the GPS will put you into a tight hairpin turn. Stop if you get a chance.

Great time had by all

I stayed with Terry and Sharon again in 2015 for 3 nights and we and another couple had a very nice time together.
I highly recommend Tagalong's site for a stay by all. Cedarbrook

Another Successful Boondock Stay

We enjoyed our recent stay with Tagalong. This is the 3rd time we have stayed with Terry and Sharon and they made us feel most welcome and were excellent hosts making sure we were comfortable. Also fun was meeting again with another boondocker who was also there last year - a great reunion and lots of laughs and stories to share.

Wonderful hospitality

Sharon and Terry welcomed us warmly and you could not find a finer host. We spent 2 nights there, and I (Edith) enjoyed watching and taking pictures of birds coming to the feeder in front of the hosts' house.
We will definitely go boondocking there again in the future.
Sharon and Terry, thank you so much for your great hospitality

Mulberry was a wonderful visit

Sharon and Terry are a warm friendly couple who go out of their way to please. We originally planned on staying one night but stayed for three. We explored the area and had lots of fun every evening. Thanks again for welcoming us into your "campground" we really appreciated your hospitality. We hope to be able to visit our new friends again.

Another Good Experience

We were anticipating being Tagalongs first boondockers, but upon arrival learned another Ontario boondocker arrrived the previous day. The facilities were as advertised, our hosts very friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed spending time chatting with our hosts and other boondocker guest. I guess we passed the "test" as they are allowing us to return on our way north later in the month.
