Super Guest

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Been married for over 40 years and started RVing in 2010. We have 3 adult children and 7 grandchildren so spend time traveling back and forth between the northern part of Michigan and southwest Florida. We've also enjoyed traveling east and west from the Maritime Provinces of Canada to the western shores of Washington State. We enjoy meeting new people and hearing their stories and telling our own if the opportunity presents itself in a serendipity way.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Have some experience with computer technology having used it for over 25 years. Also, if I can lend a handle to any task and have the time would be happy to help.

JustAPlace2Rest's Pets

We have a Goldedoodle pup (born Jan 2017). She's a busy female and very loveable. She's traveled with us since the day we got her, while traveling.

JustAPlace2Rest's Hometown

JustAPlace2Rest's Rig

Rig Type: Class A

43 feet long

We travel in an older 43 foot diesel pusher and usually tow a car. Would love to be able to use our 4 slides if possible when we park but can also keep them in if it's not appropriate to extend them.

Great people - fun to talk to!

It was a pleasure to host these nice folks who just stayed one night but were nice enough to come by for a visit before they left to continue their journey.

Very pleasant couple. Had to guide their 43 foot rig into our narrow drive but managed with care.

Enjoyed good conversation and explained things about the Farm to them. Arrived right on time they planned to. Left in time to accomodate our departure next morning. Recomend this great couple to anyplace that can handle their big rig! They are welcome back anytime we are home.

Great location and great host!!!!

This stay was awesome. The location was wonderful for all that we wanted to do. We really had a great time with these hosts and enjoyed dinner together one evening. We highly recommend staying with JustAPlace2Rest if you are in the area.

Abundance of generosity

This was the perfect place for a stop while we explored the area and while the hubby tripped down memory lane about his days in the military.

Thank you so much for the amenities and for making it a safe place to be.

Great dinner conversation.

Wonderful accommodating hosts!

I stayed for one night on my way to the UP. JustAPlace2Rest was very accommodating and quick to respond to my requests and questions.


September 2018

Such a gracious host

I requested a stay one evening when all parks were full, and the host replied within minutes and said I was welcome to park there, though he wasn't home. His trusting, welcoming spirit reminded me of the good old days when people trusted each other. A most gracious host!

Very Gracious Couple

Great hosts

JustAPlace2Rest and his wife are excellent hosts. We had a good time sharing in conversation with them and were given some very good suggestions about their town. Looking forward to seeing them again.
