Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Laura and I (Stephen) both teach computer science (yes, we do Windows) at Durham College in Oshawa Ontario. We are both introverts and love to take long quiet summers away from the big city lif of the rest of our existence. We travel with our 30 foot MH, a Forest River FR3!!, and our two cats (who always stay inside the motorhome). Last summer we camped in Nova Scotia for almost two months and stayed with some great Boondockers along the way! What a great experience and a wonderful opportunity to meet people.

Now we are looking for a way to do it again!

Now when I say we are introverts, you have to understand that we are in front of classes of 30 or so students every day. What we look for in summer are a quiet time and quiet conversation. We love to meet new people, but only in rather small groups. We read (a lot) and take pictures. My wife says I am the only person she knows that when asked "what are you thinking?" or "what's on your mind" and answers "nothing" is telling the truth!

Skills & Expertise to Share

For myself, being modest, good to expert on computers (networks, wireless, security) woodworking and out of the box solutions. For my wife, good to expert on computers (networks, wireless, security)and COOKING!

SMFranks's Pets

Two small older cats, Caitlyn and Buffy :) They stay in the MH and are not interested in going out, but they love to watch the squirrels!

Favorite Boondocking Locations

New to this but haven't met a place that we were unhappy with yet!

SMFranks's Hometown

Oshawa, Ontario. I'm going to start asking around, so I can add to this later!

Always Welcome

SMFranks were great guests. Communication on arrival time was perfect and despite the pouring rain, they got set up in their spot with humour. They are welcome here anytime as are their 4 legged kids. 😉 Can't recommend them highly enough. Hope to see you next year on your way thru.

Family reunion.

We may not be related, but when SMFranks arrive, it's like family has come home to visit. Love having them stay. And they have an open invitation to come back anytime.
