On a three month boondocking extravaganza!

Active Guest

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

For the last nine months we've been parked on Puget Sound in Everett, WA where Aaron was a temporary project manager for a friend's boat building company. We're on the road again driving The Great Northern Route (US-2). We plan to take about three months to return to the Midwest and hope to boondock as much as possible so we can truly enjoy the beauty and peace of the Cascades, Rockies, and ranch lands of the Great Plains.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Aaron has built a home, so he is comfortable with electric, plumbing, etc. He was a potato farmer for many years in north central MN.. Before that, he owned a printing company and can scoot around on a computer fairly well. He also did OTR trucking. Is there anything he can't do? YES! This is where Deborah's skills come in. She loves to cook and bake and tell stories of her several years working in the healthcare industry. She is also very interested in the benefits of essential oils and uses them on a daily basis. Recently, she began attempting to learn Spanish in case she and Aaron make a trip to Central America.

Great People

Aaron and Deb were a delight to host. We shared Pizza and wine and a good time was had by all. We thoroughly enjoyed their company and would gladly host them again, especially since they were very forgiving of our big Black Lab that thinks that everyone should love her AND invite her into their rig.

Nice couple

This couple stayed with us last night. They were very nice and we had a nice visit with them. They are sure welcome to stay again if they pass this way. If you get a chance to host them, you'll enjoy them.
