Both my husband and I come from careers affiliated with education. He has been a business "trainer" and I have worked at a university in the College of Education. My husband and I are retired and have been on the road for 3 years now. We are coming upon 1 year of being "house free." This means our home is where we park it and the patio changes frequently. We travel with our dog who is a small ShiTzu. She is well behaved and a wonderful traveler. While we have no home, we do head back to our "pier" in Richland WA where our children and grandchildren are.

Our goals are to anchor at our port a couple of times a year and then to travel and explore this wonderful country of ours. We visit family, friends and explore our interests in history and genealogy in the process.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

One of our most favorite spots was in Ohio when we were out in the country near Sandusky. We were fortunate enough to spend almost 6 weeks there. It was on farmland and it was adjacent to property that family had a duplex on. Outside our door was a wonderful pond with fish, geese, ducks, herons, and visiting the pond there were deer and wild turkey. We fondly call that our time on "Golden Pond."
Boondocking has been as wonderful as this, as crazy as Quartzite and simple as Walmart. Our travels have been mostly across the upper part of the USA and currently we are in Maine and will be heading back west shortly.

CJJS's Hometown

We are from Southeastern Washington State. We fondly call it "the non-evergreen" part of the Evergreen State. We enjoy the semi arid desert and all it's beauty and equally as important as to why we settled there over 40 years ago now, is it is relatively close to mountains (a favorite of our camping years with family has been at the base of Mount Rainier) and equally as important to the fabric of our family travels over the years has been our time spent every summer at the Oregon and Washington coasts. The weather in Richland Washington always announces a season, but overall it is not harsh most years and the sunshines a lot of the year making outdoor adventures possible.

CJJS's Rig

We are self contained in a 37' class "A" motorhome. It is a new 2016 and it has 3 slides. When it is extremely hot outside, it is nice to be able to plug into electricity for us and our pet. We are able to function on 30amps but have the capability to use 50. We have boondocked over the last three years and have found that we also do not need to pull out our slides...although a minimum of one is more comfy for getting around our bed. At this moment we do not have a photo, but will post one shortly.
