Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Consider myself to be a decent guy. Kind of a -'keep to myself'- guy a lot of the time. Have two daughters. Both live about 1.5 hrs away - in different directions.

I am conversational (too much so at times). Not very mechanical any more. Don't socialize a lot locally, but would enjoy your visit & hear about you & your travels.

Like to putt around my place on my quad & 'trot' my dogs on our private road with it. Use the quad to plow snow in winter. Like to snowmobile as well.

Wonderful pups and a great host!

We really enjoyed our time here! He met us up at the top of the driveway, as we got in late when it was dark, and escorted us back to where we could park. Huge green yard which our pup loved! Able to unhitch and take the truck into town easily. Would certainly stay here again! Felt like home :)

Friendly People

We had spend one night by Doug. Very nice guy with so many thing to learn. I hope that you could find a woman boondocker to travel another time with her. Thanks very much. My daughters make a big kiss. Enjoy your life.

We had a great time at dugndog's place! He is a great host & we wish there would have been more time to talk with him. He has a beautiful spot in the woods & it was very peaceful there. Levi & Sara

Great Place to Stay

This was our first boondocking spot and it has been wonderful. Dugndogs and his awesome dogs are great hosts. The location is remote enough to be quite and close enough to town its not a hassle to get things you need. The property is beautiful and the wind comes through the trees just right. Doug has been the nicest guy and is our first new friend in Washington!

Quiet peaceful place

A lovely spot in a rural area with trees in fall colours and an quiet back road to stretch our legs after driving. Dugndogs were friendly and courteous and offered electrical and water fill up to get us back on the road again. Ruth and Steve

Fabulous Host

We stayed here for one night in September 2016. We arrived tired and worn down by hours of driving through wild winds in the mountain passes. This spot was the perfect remedy. We enjoyed a few relaxed hours chatting on the back porch. We then had dinner and a great nights sleep. This spot just exuded peace and the host went above and beyond to make us comfortable.

Super Nice Guy -- Dogs are Big But Friendly!

We spent two nights here and really enjoyed the quiet and serene location. Our GPS took us all the way in but the directions from the main road are simple enough -- call the host (?maybe before you get up in the mountains?) for details if you want to be sure you're going the right way. It took some persuading, but our host finally relented and let me take a look at the landing gear issue with his fifth wheel. We worked together and were able to resolve the problem. I've made my living over the years doing maintenance and repair work so I was more than happy to help out . . . he certainly did not expect anything. The wood bases we made for the landing gear on his rig worked so well that we made another set (from his scrap pile of pressure-treated wood) for our rig. Trying to respect BW's request that we not include real names or other personal information in these recommendations, but we feel like we found a new friend and we look forward to staying here again and again in the years to come.

Nice guy! Easy parking.

We stayed with dugndogs (Doug and his dogs) on June 20, 2016, passing thru from Montana to Olympic Nat Park. It was a little tricky to find his place, as it IS of the beaten path. And THAT, is the beauty of it! Very QUIET night, just what you need when traveling and driving a distance the next day. Large, open area which we had no problem turning our 36 ft. fifth wheel in. Had water and electric (30 amp) all ready for use. Thanks, Doug!

Wonderful Host!

I dare you to try and find a nicer guy on Boondockers Welcome! Doug was very helpful and went out of his way to make sure we knew where we were going when we left. His spot in the mountains is beautiful and so serene. He had two friendly, big dogs. He even let our kids play horseshoes in his horseshoe pit! We have a 36' fifth wheel and could navigate the roads, and his driveway just fine. Thank you so much for your hospitality, Doug!
