We are looking forward to a 6 month road trip in the US in March. We will pick up our truck camper in Georgia and plan to head south to catch up with some friends from last year's trip then west through Texas and up to the Pacific north west.
At home in Australia we have a 2008 Northstar 850 SC on the back of a Toyota Landcruiser. We have travelled extensively throughout Australia and love spending time in the national parks and outback as well as the beach and surf. Like getting off the beaten track but realise there will be plenty to see in some of your cities.
We are looking forward to meeting the locals in the US and learning more about your culture, history and traditions including music and food. Also keen to experience some of your sporting events.
Computer skills are not our forte but we get by with the basics. I can turn my hand to most practical home handyman jobs with a satisfactory result. Di is an excellent cook and enjoys all types of handicrafts.
This is our second trip to the US after having spent 6 months travelling there last year. We met some very friendly and welcoming Boondockers and are looking forward to some new experiences this year. In Aus, we have free camped extensively in our travels, having taken the truck and camper 20,000km around Australia 2 years ago.
Our home is on 5 acres at Cornubia, which is just south of Brisbane, Queensland, about 45 minutes from the Gold Coast. A major shopping centre is about 10 minutes away.
Our RV in the US is an Eagle Cap slide in truck camper with a slide out on the back of a Ford 250 4WD.
Had a great time hosting this couple....wish they could have stayed longer...looking forward to meeting with them again some day. Hope to get to Australia to visit :)
Super Aussies we had a great time with. Interested and open-minded folks, which turned out to be like long-lost friends to us. Hope to see them again one day.
What a wonderful time we had hosting this couple from "down-under"... as we have family there and have visited a number of times we had lots to talk about... Enjoyed showing them a small neck of our woods and a bit of town...LOL Welcome back any time and yes, next time we will need to get that golf game in for sure.. A great couple who anyone can enjoy..

My family and I had alot of fun with Dianden for a couple nights. Hosting my new Aussi friends was a pleasant break from the day to day routine.
Very Nice couple stayed one night and we had a good visit--they are welcome any time
I only had them as guests for a few hours overnight as they were headed to N.O. and had to be there at a specific time. What a nice, friendly and patient couple to listen to my boring stories for an hour! Hope they can visit again for a few more days.
Great couple from down-under. I enjoyed their stay with me. I wish them the best during their stay in the U.S. You will be happy you hosted this couple
DianDen were fun to have as our guests for two nights. They are respectful and courteous, and they'd lend a bit of "Aussiness" to your life! We enjoyed swapping stories, sharing dinner and laughs, mixed in with some music and beverages. After we gave Dennis ukulele lessons, we're hoping that the next time they pass through, he'll be able to join the band and we can all hit the road together@ It was our pleasure to have them, and we hope they stop back again next time they're in our neck of the woods.
It's people like Diaden that make being a Booncocker host a real pleasure. They see good in our culture and we learned from theirs. Glad they enjoyed venturing about Florida Space Coast and our Grove. Of course, we highly recommend this Ausie couple to be your guest.
