Butch was quick to reply to my email and he and Fonda met us at their place and we chatted all about boondocking. They are right on the road with plenty of parking and also provided 30 AMP electricity. To top it off, they kindly gave us some delicious watermelon. Thanks, Butch & Fonda, for a peaceful sleep "on the road".
We matched up well with the hosts and easily could have imposed on them for several day if time allowed. Will definitely keep them in our address book and find them at a CG or BML land in the future.
We thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Butch and Fonda. They're perfect hosts and provided a convenient stop on our way to the RV Hall of Fame Museum in Elkhart the next morning. We had level parking with an offer of electric if we wanted it. Their town is so small that it was quiet all night and felt more like we were in the country. We woke to the songs of many birds including morning doves and a neighborhood rooster. Having grown up on a farm, I felt right at home.
Met Butch and Fonda when we arrived to stay at their place in Twelve Mile, Indiana at their machine and fabrication shop. Very nice people. Got along just fine and yes we do recommend other people to boondock at their place.
Used the search and found an overnight "haven" from Butch and Fonda in Twelve Mile, IN. They were extremely hospitable and we felt very safe on their property. Great dry, level site for our overnight in a 40 foot 5th wheel.
