We travel in a 1998 Airstream B-190 van with our two corgis, Coco and Charlie. We love to hike, run, mountain bike, swim, or sit and read if it is a rainy day. We started our adventure in North Carolina after selling our farm in Rhode Island. We are now based in Tucson, Arizona and in Western North Carolina.
I work remotely as an analyst in higher education, and so during the week (Monday through Friday) I am working pretty much 7-5 cst. Wifi is always appreciated, although we intend to use boondockers welcome on weekends or when we can't find a campground during the week, or when my mifi isn't getting a signal! My husband is early retired and while I work, he goes out for a run, a bike ride, or sits and catches up on reading.
We are open to helping out where we are needed. We owned an alpaca farm, so we're familiar with their care, and we've had various domestic birds so if you need someone to feed the chickens or other livestock, we are happy to help.
We are open-minded and want to learn about the people who live where we are visiting. We are interested in natural and cultural history.
We love food, and have no restrictions, so please tell us where to find the best everything your locality has to offer.
Mostly, we are looking to see the country and meet new friends.

Coco and Charlie
Tom is very handy. I am a great copy editor if you need me to red-pen anything.
We are good with all animals and know how to take care of critters.
Yes, we have two older corgis, Coco and Charlie. They come with us everywhere (pretty much) and like walks on the leash and the local dog park (however, in their old age, they no longer hike with us.)
We are new to this, but so far we love anywhere we can go mountain biking or running or hiking nearby, or where we can walk the pups. So far, we have used Boondockers Welcome in Virginia, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Texas.
Originally from Newport, Rhode Island. Tom is originally from the Albany, NY area. Currently from Tucson, AZ, with springtime spent in western NC.
Airstream B-190 with two mountain bikes on rack - total length -21 feet. Our van has an airstream top, so it makes us taller than traditional conversion vans. It is a 1998. No slides, but it does have a retractable awning on the right side. The interior curtains are tye-died, but otherwise it looks like the photo below.
Guest came quietly and left quietly. Didn’t get to meet them, but all is well. Would be welcome back.
They were absolutely delightful and very respectful. We really enjoyed spending time getting to know them and their story of how they have transitioned into full timers! They are wonderful people and we would welcome them back anytime. Plus they have two super cute dogs!! We wish them nothing but the best for their future and hope we can connect again soon.
Stayed with us two nights, great people, very nice and quiet dogs. They're welcome to come back any time!
Anjuanja and their dogs spent one night with us. They were quiet, respectful and appreciative. We would welcome them back anytime.
This team were our guests for 1 night. They were clean and respectful of our land. They have 2 corgis they travel with and kept them leashed and cleaned up after them.
They are welcome back at anytime.
