Judy is a retired HR and Payroll specialist who is now working with David creating affordable housing in Victoria BC. David has been a businessman for 40 years and for the last 25 years has been a Realtor in Victoria. See www.davidhale.com. Our newest business model has us creating affordable housing through "Shared Home Ownership Victoria". see www.sharedhomeownershipvictoria.com. Real Estate in Victoria BC is very expensive, so we have created a program where we specialize in selling homes with legal suites to two parties, who don't necessarily know each other, but find each other through what is equivalent to a "dating site". We are also becoming "Joint Venture Investment Experts"
We have raised 4 wonderful grown adults and are proud Grandma & Grandpa of 2 Grandchildren that live in Phoenix Arizona. We love traveling south in the winter, and we love Vancouver Island and discovering the many surrounding Islands. Traveling, discovering, and meeting people is one of our favorite pastimes. We believe that because we can't see our best before dates, it's time we create our lives the way we want it. Our goal is to travel and discover North America over the next 10 years. We love personal development and we love to make a positive difference in the lives we touch and the world at large.
We are grateful for every day we have and for all the wonderful people we have in our lives and the ones we get the pleasure of meeting.
David & Judy Hale

We work with and coach people (who want to be coached) on relationships and how to discover their blind spots, and help people discover their full potential. We are designing our lives to live every day to the fullest and we love the life we live. We like to "Create the life you can't wait to wake up to" !!!!!!
This is our fouth season with Boondockers Welcome, and love the idea of getting involved with the sharing economy. We enjoy Quartzsite Arizona, Lake Pleasant (NW Phoenix), the free beaches of the Texas Gulf Coast, the super New Mexico Yearly State Park Pass, and the many wineries listed in the Harvest Hosts Website. We love meeting people, saving money when we travel, and sharing our boondocking expertise. We look forward to meeting and making many new friends.
We live in Victoria BC on the south tip of Vancouver Island. It is very much an international tourist destination, and a very beautiful city. We live in a townhouse complex, so parking is tight, but there is possible street camping, and we can suggest places to stay close by.
We have a clean 2004 Seabreeze fully self contained 32 foot A class motor home with 2 slide outs, that don't have to go out, and no tow vehicle.
I must apologize for the very late submission of this review. I hope this delay has not posed any difficulties for Victoria Boondockers.
We very much enjoyed hosting Victoria Boondockers for their brief stay and would not hesitate to have them be our guests again. We wish them safe and enjoyable travels.
I'm glad you enjoyed our wonderful desert oasis
Feel free to stop by anytime!
We only hosted for one night as they were in a hurry to get back home. They arrived as scheduled and backed themselves into the spot and were great at communication. Happy to host them again!
It is always great to see old friends again. We look forward to their next visit.
Enjoyed a good visit with these folks. You two are welcome back anytime.
Sadly our timing was off and we didn’t get to visit with Victoria at all in person, but all our communications were thorough, engaging and clear, and they came and left without a hitch.
Please come back!
We really enjoyed have the Victoria Boondockers stay with us.
Had a pleasant visit with them on our porch before we retired for the evening.
We really enjoyed getting acquainted with this couple from Canada. It was wonderful to visit about places we are familiar with in their part of Canada. Made us homesick to see it all again. We wish them Godspeed and safe travels as they continue exploring North America. We look forward to many return visits and hope to meet other family members also.
Victoria D&J were great communicators, making it easy to host them. We wish our timing had worked out better for getting to actually spend time with this interesting couple.
Maybe we’ll get lucky and they’ll come back, or we’ll find them in BC.
Victoria Boondockers are great guests. They communicated really well before their arrival furnishing an ETA with updates and arrived on time. Unfortunately we weren’t able to visit very long but they were really friendly and we enjoyed talking with them. They were here for only one night but so quiet we hardly knew they were here at all. They are welcome back anytime.
It was a pleasure to host this couple while they were in town. We wish them safe travels. They are welcome back next time that they are in this area.
We had a very pleasant evening visiting around their little propane campfire. Very quiet and respectful. They would be welcome back anytime
My lady friend and I found Victoria Boondockers to be very friendly and enjoyable Boondocker guests. We had great conversation over my fire pit on the river bank. While they only requested 2 nights I informed them that I had no reservations for several days they were welcome to extend their stay. They did so for another night. I also invited them back on their return trip back home. They are welcome back here anytime they wish.
Thanks for being our guest. We really enjoyed out chat. Safe travels and thanks again.
Sheppards pie for dinner. Yum!
Wow! What a wonderful couple. My wife and I were at the restaurant on the day they were leaving and got to spend an hour or so chatting about everything! My wife rarely gets to meet our guests as she works elsewhere so it was a real treat for her and what a great couple for her to meet. She asked me if all our guests were so friendly! I said of course but the Canadians are something special. Thanks for the treats, Ashley was very moved by your thoughtfulness. Safe travels, Jason
After settling in their parking spot, we lite a camp fire and I was treated to a nice home cooked RV dinner. Delicious, and colorful stuffed pepper. We spent some time swapping stories at the camp fire until I had to call it a night. Late morning they continued east to Florida.They are welcomed any time,
We so enjoyed visiting with D & J. Very friendly couple that just fit right in with our family. Hope to see you on a return trip.
We enjoyed visiting with this delightful couple, our first boondockers to return for a second stay. Have a wonderful trip to Florida and we will see you on Vancouver in the fall.
Beautiful people with sweet hearts. Thank you for the gift. You both are awesome. Safe travel and you are always welcome to come back.
Nice visit, great conversations and pleasant couple. Have safe travels. You are welcome here anytime.
We had a wonderful visit with Victoria Boondockers the evening that they arrived. Very courteous and friendly and interesting conversation. Don't pass up the opportunity to host them!
I was sorry I didn't meet Victoria Boondockers, but they took good care of their parking spot. I couldn't even tell they had been there. I hope we meet on your next trip through!
We enjoyed swapping stories with this friendly, generous couple. Thanks for giving us another reason to get back to your neck of the woods.
We very much enjoyed David and Judy, they were awesome guests. David and I talked late into the night over a glass or two of wine......OK, maybe it was three......
Using the words from a very wise person, a stranger is just someone you haven’t met yet. We so enjoy hosting Boondockers and people like Victoria Boondockers are a great example of why. They are welcome back any time.
We spent a wonderful evening with two very interesting people. The best thing about Boondockers Welcome is the amazing people we meet. These great folks are welcome to stop anytime.
We enjoyed hosting this pleasant couple. Friendly and quiet. We wish we could have spent more time hearing about their home and their travels. They are welcome at the Old Farmhouse anytime. Cheers!
Great couple! They were a wealth of information for an upcoming trip we are planning, as they had previously travelled extensively in the area.
Very enjoyable sitting around the campfire, swapping stories. Hope to see them again.
We had a blast visiting with Victoria Boondockers. What a lovely couple. Very engaging and courteous. Would definitely have them back again!!!
They stayed with us early in the year and we with them this summer. Couldn’t have enjoyed ourselves more each time. Welcoming, interesting and fun. Looking forward to seeing them again.
Judy and David are the best. Very down to earth and real mellow. They will always be welcomed here.
