Former Silicon Valley Professionals Turned Nomads

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

In July of 2016, we decided to get off the hamster wheel that is Silicon Valley and see this incredible country we live in! We sold our house and 90% of our belongings and headed to South Dakota, where we worked for two+ months as ranch hands/tour guides for the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary. And the adventure continues! You can check out our Facebook and Instagram pages for more info on us and our travels, RoyalEscapadesWithWilliamandKate.

Skills & Expertise to Share

William is a great handyman, and is very good with computers.
Kate loves to cook, and is an organizational wizard. Need your closet or kitchen organized, Kate is your gal!

BillandKate's Pets

Sadly, we had to say goodbye to our itty bitty 17 year old travel companion, Joey, our five pound poodle, In February 2021. :-(

Favorite Boondocking Locations

So far, our favorite boondocking site was Rutherford Beach, LA, even though we got stuck in the sand!
We also loved boondocking in the Utah Salt Flats and just outside Badlands, SD.
However, I think our favorite bookdocking spots have been with the lovely people we have met through this website!

BillandKate's Hometown

We lived in San Jose, CA for 11 years, but lived in Kettering, Ohio for 20 years prior to that.

An eventful second visit..

We had quite a time with these folks on their second visit to our Quiet Farm. Had a busy time re-connecting and learning about their escapades since they last stopped by in 2017.. This "fireball" couple will be remembered as they kept us on our toes their entire stay. Am sure we will meet up with these two again....sooner than later. Safe travels my friends!!!

Was so awesome to have these wonderful guests stay with us again

I'm sad in writing this, because I know that they probably won't be passing by again, which selfishly sucks. they are such great guests, so much fun to sit and catch up and talk and have a cold one and just pass the time away. I sure hope that when they settle down, we get a chance to do some traveling and get to come stay with them. God speed you guys, I was sad to see you leave as I feel like we have really gotten to know you, and look forward to staying connected for many years to come. God speed, and safe travels, can't wait to connect again.

fun couple

we found this couple to be very respectful and not only told us about their life and travels, but also wanted to know about our life on the farm. we had two wonderful evenings on the patio having great conservations and a few good laughs. we enjoyed their stay with us and hope we have the opportunity to host them again. safe travels and enjoy the good life!

Too short

From my perspective, visit was too short; would have liked to visit more. Maybe next time. Come again someday.

Excellent

Will and Kate were perfect guests, quiet and polite. Unfortunately we did not have an opportunity to visit with them due to our Covid-19 exposure and quarantine. They are welcome to stay again.

We enjoyed having Will and Kate. Great conversation about travel full time and places to visit. Must say we are a little envious and can't wait to hit the road ourselves. They are welcome to visit any time!!

Great people.

It was very interesting to talk with Bill and Kate. They have a Dutch Star motorhome similar to ours --- but their's is the much shorter little baby version :>) They are welcome back at any time.

Great Couple, and Joey (the pup) is always happy to see you :-)

Very nice folks, friendly and outgoing. This Royal Couple went above and beyond, sending their drone up and capturing some great shots of my property for me (which I'm about to post on my profile here). They are definitely welcome back any time.

Will and Kate are warm genuine folks traveling with their little Joey. We enjoyed visiting for a few hours and wish we had had more time to show them around. Safe travels and come back anytime

Had a wonderful week cannot sum things up

Will and Kate, well to say that after a week together I feel like family sums it up. Wonderful times, amazing conversations, laughs and tears shared.... So looking forward to staying in contact and seeing them again in the future.... I see a future road trip to go and visit them.

Our time with Will and Kate

What a great couple! Kathy and I fully enjoyed the few days that they spent at our place. They are a lot of fun and they are welcome to come back anytime and spend time with us.

OMG what an awesome couple!

We are so happy we joined Boondockers Welcome. Will and Kate were awesome. Enough that we went away from our home the second night due to Bill's fathers medical emergency in Minneapolis. They both stayed and watched our dog for us when we were gone. We had a great time sharing stories with our life experiences and we truly hope we meet them again when we go full time next year. We already miss them! Thank you Will and Kate and safe travels!

Wonderful guests!

I really enjoyed Will and Kate being at my place. They were so very friendly, and their dog is the sweetest little thing, always sharing his toys. I was not available to hang out with them as much as I would have liked to. And I would invite Will and Kate back again any time.

Both have a delightful sense of humor....we had lots of laughs...Beings I was recovering from surgery, they were so thoughtful by preparing an entire meal and bringing it into the house....it was so good and we appreciated it very much.....We wish them well on their adventures!!! Welcome to stop by any time!!

We hosted Will and Kate this month (June) and they are very friendly and were a pleasure to have stay with us. Their little dog and ours got along very well. We wish them luck in their travels and they are welcome to return again.
