Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Bobby and I live on a small farm in Church Hill, TN. We love to RV and recently bought a new RV. We are beginning to plan for our retirement life - although both of us are still working right now. We love to meet people and enjoy getting out an emerging ourselves into local areas. Part of the fun for us is meeting new people and enjoying new locations. We do quite a bit of dry camping and thought this would be a new and unique way to dry camp and enjoying meeting more people in their locations.

One of the things we discovered as we became empty nesters, is that we love to travel together. Hence, our recent purchase of a new RV. We do both dry camping and staying in campgrounds. We did a trip out West last summer - travelling over 5,000 miles and visiting 7 National Parks. This summer we travelled to Canada and enjoying New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Nova Scotia. We again travelled over 5,000 miles and saw some awesome sights.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Bobby owns his own vehicle body shop. He repairs wrecks and insurance deals. His specialty is actually big trucks (18 wheelers). I am a marketing communications manager at Eastman Chemical Company. I love my job and enjoy the power of communications. In addition, I love to cook. It is a favorite hobby of mine. In fact, Bobby and I are good cooks together.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

We love to travel. We have boondocked in many locations all over the United States. We have stayed in everything from Walmart, Cabela, rest areas, truck stops, and many places in between. One of the most unique is we stayed at a grainary in South Dakota!

The Parsons's Hometown

We are originally from Church Hill, Tennessee and still live there. We love where we live. East Tennessee definitely enjoys 4 seasons of weather. It is a small rural area with lots of charm.

The Most Wonderful People

I cannot say enough good things about this couple. What lovely, friendly, pleasant people. I was warmly welcomed in Kingsport by Mrs. Parsons and she led me to their home and welcomed me inside to coffee and we chatted. It was such a friendly feeling to be at this location and when Mr. Parsons came home, he was so nice and set me up with water, electricity, wifi and asked me if I wanted to top up my water tank. This is where I was a bit dumb because I was so new to my own rig, I didn't know how or what to do with my water tank. I had tried to fill it but it seemed to leak and I didn't know if I had a hole in the tank or what. Well, he jumped right in and sorted out the problem, then offered to fix the problem if I stayed another day. I stayed, what can I say? They fed me breakfast and a dinner and took me into town to get parts to fix my water tank. I felt like they were my family only nicer (just kidding). The Parsons have a lovely spot with rolling hills, and farms surrounding them. Nice and quiet and yet, all the conveniences....and more. I loved their spot and I think they are awesome! I highly recommend stopping here.
