TWO RETIREES ESCAPING THE FLORIDA HEAT TRAVELING THE COUNTRY IN OUR RV. LOVING LIFE AND THE LORD

Host

Active Guest

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are retired from 30 years in the real estate business and investing our time seeing the country we love. I served with the US Air Force then gave Ma Bell 13 years before venturing into building, investing, selling and managing real estate. Ruth was involved in the medical field for 6 years. I have been doing income taxes and Honey-Do projects and volunteering with Habitat for Humanity in Ga. We do some mission work with an RV group called the SOWERS for churches and charity organizations, mostly in Florida in the winters. We travel with our Poodle and our Yorky and 5 or 6 box turtles in our 35' Winnebago coach towing a Honda CR-V for running around. Will love to meet other members and spend time in their areas as we explore the states along the way.

ED-RUTH's Pets

We have two dogs, a poodle "EPONINE" and a yorky "Bella", and they are usually with us on all trips. We also have five box turtles that are with us sometimes.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

NORTH GA MOUNTAINS AT OUR CABIN AND VIRGINIA IN THE LYNCHBURG AREA. ON THE ROAD WE HAVE FOUND THAT CRACKER BARRELS ARE GREAT PLACES TO STAY AND CLOSE TO THE INTERSTATES. WALMARTS ARE GOOD TOO WHEN WE ARE JUST MOVING THROUGH.

ED-RUTH's Hometown

Titusville FL for winters and Blue Ridge GA in summer.

Beauty and friends in the forest

What a gem. Ed and Ruth were such gracious host. We were welcomed to their lovely property in the trees for 5 nights!!! (we booked it for 3 and loved the area so much asked if we could stay a couple extra days.) We would never have known about Blue Ridge, GA., if not for Boondockers Welcome. Such a beautiful area with lots of fun stuff to do: tubing down the river, hiking to waterfalls, trees everywhere, and really tranquil. All of us, kids and dogs included, had a blast. Ed and Ruth couldn't have been nicer, felt like family. We had a wonderful dinner together and sat on their deck while it rained in the warm summer night. Parked in their RV driveway and slept with our windows open to the sound of crickets in the evening, birds in the morning. Lovely!!! If you get a chance to come here you won't be disappointed. Thank you Ed and Ruth. You guys are the best!!

Mountain Getaway

My wife and I stayed at Ed and Ruth's Mountain home for 3 nights and we had a great experience! Ed and Ruth were not there at the time, but the driveway was level and we were even able to access some covered space for our rig! It was so quiet and beautiful, we were able to go hike on the Appalachian Trail and loved charming downtown Blue Ridge!

*A nice mountain getaway*

Even though we never met personally- we were very well taken care of! All amenities we obviously displayed and I New I was a call/text away from them providing me with any answers I might need. The location very quit and freeing... would highly recommend and hope to meet in person someday! Thanks so much for the stay!!

Very kind and helpful

I contacted ED-RUTH about a couple nights in their boondock as I was passing from one adult child's home to the other. Ed and Ruth were very kind and patient, gave us information and suggested that we contact them closer to the actual dates involved. My husband is not comfortable with uncertainty or spontaneity, and his anxiety soared as our children had to reschedule and reschedule again our visits, and finally wound up cancelling us all together. But I still intended to have my vacation in the mountains, so I planned that we should go ahead and drive up to the mountains and messaged Ed and Ruth. He wasn't comfortable with waiting to hear back even a few hours, so I had to go ahead and make alternative arrangements. This is not Ed and Ruth's fault as they are very quick in answering their messages,
I am hoping that I'll get a chance to meet them down the road, as this will not be my last trip to the GA mountains!

Great Hosts

We stayed at the location of "Ed-Ruth" and were amazed with the hospitality of the hosts. We are in a 25' class B and fit wonderfully on their level RV parking area next to their cabin. The location is just off the paved road but far enough into the forest for an abundance of privacy and quietness. The road continues upward and further into a forested cabin community that makes for a nice but strenuous hike if you so choose. We traveled through on the July 4th weekend and spent considerable time sharing RV stories with the hosts. We recommend this boondocking location any time. Thank you "Ed - Ruth" near Blue Ridge.

Gracious hosts in a beautiful place

Ed & Ruth allowed me to stay on their beautiful wooded property in North Georgia. Gracious hosts. If they ever write to ask about a place to stay, feel comfortable in making them welcome at your place.

nice location

We stayed at their spot one night while on our way to Florida.
Very secluded and about an hour off the I75.
Nice place with roof over. ED-Ruth were not home but the water and electricity were turned on.
Thanks

Beautiful mountain location

Ed and Ruth warmly welcomed us to their little corner of paradise.
We enjoyed hikes to waterfalls along the Appalachian and Benton MacKaye Trails and our time at their property was quiet and relaxing. We want to thank Ed and Ruth for their hospitality and advice on the local trails and attractions. We hope to meet up again in Florida next time.
