Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We're both retired telecommunication folks. Retired from U S West, in 2000. It had just changed to Qwest, but is now Century Link. We sold our Longmont, CO home in 2014 and went full time in our RV. First in our 30' Airstream Classic that we took to Alaska. We served as volunteers at Corps of Engineers Chena Dam Project near Fairbanks the 2015 summer. But have also volunteered at Texas state parks, Louisiana wildlife refuge, and a variety of other places. We love our full time life style. Our adult children and grand children live in Colorado and Wyoming, so we travel there 3-4 months of the year.

Connie is very much in to quilting. Has a couple Bernina's that fill her time. Some of her quilting can be seen on our blog StreamingAround.com. Ed likes to use his computer and does a lot of video editing, as well as plan our travels.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Since we now have solar panels and a 2800 watt inverter, we are able to do more boondocking. We've enjoyed stopping at a few Boondockers Welcome places and meeting new folks. Always a welcome. We also enjoy Harvest Hosts and have stopped a several places. A raspberry farm in Shoshoni, WY was fun, and the BW welcome location overlooking the Missouri River. Walmart is always a backup for a quick overnight stop.

ednconnie's Hometown

We are Rocky Mountain folks. Ed grew up mostly in New Mexico, but later years in Wyoming, Montana, Utah and Colorado. Connie's young years were in Ogalala, Nebraska, but lived in Cheyenne, Wyoming from junior high till she married Ed and moved to Montana. We lived in Colorado from 1994 till going full time.

Our first guests

Ed/Connie were our first "boondockers". We enjoyed having them stay with us. Connie was so gracious in sharing her knowledge about quilting, helping me put a binding on a quilt I had, and teaching me about my Bernina sewing machine. They are welcome anytime. Eileen/ Country Space.
