Favorite Boondocking Locations

We bought our trailer 2 years ago and so far we have made a 7-week trip to west coast, a 4-week trip to Florida and Louisiana, week-long trips to Connecticut and North Carolina. We have put over 16,000 miles on her and keep making small improvements between trips.

We enjoy nature, museums, visiting relatives and wineries and just plain finding out-of-the-way places.

boatboydad's Hometown

We live in the country just a few miles from the Atlantic Ocean. The towns near us on the coast are popular resort towns. Inland is farmland used for raising chickens, corn and soybean.

Don't pass up a chance to meet this couple. Easy to get to know, and so very gracious. We are looking forward to seeing them again.

The best hosts in Delaware

Lynn and her husband were very nice to myself, my wife and my kids. It was my first time using the camper and they gave us lots of good advice and even offered to help with a minor repair. Nice couple to talk with when around. I appreciate them for making our stay lovely. They opened up their big backyard for the kids to play in too. We were mostly on day trips though. Thanks guys for all you did.
