Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I enjoy meeting new people and look forward to being a part of a network of hosts and travelers on this site. I have hosted a couple of folks and would enjoy hosting more. I have yet to boondock myself but look forward to it.
For some reason I have missed a couple of emails from people wishing to boondock...don't give up ...try again if you don't hear from me. Perhaps the emails are getting waylaid in the junk mail?

Skills & Expertise to Share

I Love to garden and welcome you to partake of the fresh veggies I grown when in season.

Saco River's Pets

I do not travel with pets but have two cats, goats, ducks and a visiting dog named daisy occasionally

Favorite Boondocking Locations

I love to be close enough to water so I can hear it! Rural areas are my favorite

Saco River's Hometown

It is 40 min from Portland, the ocean, the mountains and ski areas. A peaceful spot by the river

Saco River's Rig

Rig Type: Class A

16 feet long

I have converted a 2005 Ford E1 50 van into a self-contained travel vehicle.I had it painted a deep forest green and they put in two fantastic fans. I have an outside plug in for electric, a solar generator, tiny woodstove and a self-contained toilet. I have a little sink, cookstove and table. It is simple and comfortable, easy to drive and doesn't take up very much space.

Warm, welcoming, casual, and funky

I loved my stay. Altho the description is very understated, the place is so much fun with an old school hippyish feel. Easy to find among winding rural roads, it feels like a country homestead, backing up to a lovely river surrounded by trees. I parked in a level spot in front of the barn that sits right beside the house. It has been converted to a studio space where there are all kinds of art projects are happening. There are goats and ducks in pens right near the house and a trail down to the river. I was welcomed, offered food, and spent the evening talking and laughing over a hot cup of tea. It felt like I was visiting long lost friends. I give Saco River a maximum thumbs up.

Great place, wonderful host

One of the nicest places to stay. Thank you, B., for your wonderful berry-and-rhubarb-cake! The pitch is quiet and the area is really impressive. No doubt, if we will ever be within 100 miles and looking for a host, we know whom to call!
