Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are a Christian couple in east central Indiana on a farm remnant (5 acres) with a couple old driveways now grass, but pretty good for all weather overnight stays by fellow travelers. We bought a 5er recently but will probably only camp close to home for a while due to still working (high cost of retirement?) Eager to meet other folks of the same leanings and share stories and tips. Would prefer a quieter bunch (not loud music all hours), but campfires are usually welcome and if we get any responses we may put in a couple fire rings for good measure. Well water is available, but it is very hard (29gr) and some odor (It smells like well water, duh!) We have no dump facilities and don't plan on any, but the price is right! We are in our 60s and have two dogs (not ferocious!). Let us know what the interest is and we'll take it from there. thanks

Bought an 07 Jayco Designer 5er and an 06 F350 diesel dually crew cab from a friend. Absolutely could not have picked out a unit we liked better and had it built new. They needed to sell so we bought a little sooner than we would have otherwise. That's why we probably will stay close to home for a couple years.

Nice, Quiet stopover

We stayed here overnight. Easy to find, easy access right off the interstate, but far enough away to be quiet. They had put out reflectors to mark the culvert. We were warmly welcomed. We highly recommend this Boondockers Welcome! host.

Beautiful, Peaceful, and Amazing

Thank you Oldtrojan66 we had a great stay at your place. It was nice and quiet and absolutely beautiful! I know you guys had to be wiped out from just getting home from your own month of RVing, but you were very helpful and friendly and we greatly appreciated your hospitality. Hope to see you on the road.... Maybe in AZ. You have our number :)

Relaxing night in the Country

I am so happy we contacted this host as the response was quick, they put out reflectors so we would know where to park and their property was lovely. It's a quiet spot on a country road where my husband was able to fit in a brisk evening walk before retiring. Very convenient to two major highways and a gas station/convenience mart. I would definitely recommend these folks as they were very helpful and welcoming.

What a place

Host could not be home but allowed us to stay anyway. Their Grandson left a wedding to make sure we got settled in. Wonderful corn country. We were headed to NM from PA. The response time was within minutes. Hope to get back to meet our generous hosts.

Very accomodating even late at night.

We had a tough time saying goodbye to my ailing Brother earilier, then our Garmin got us lost. He still got out there in the dark to show us where their campsight was marked out. They could accommodate a few self contained RVs in their large location. They are only a short mile and 1/4 from the I-70 freeway. It is also a historic area where Wilbur Wright was born nearby. Nice Fellow but we couldn't visit much. He gets up for work at 4 AM. We would visit them again if they will have us!
