Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are a couple who love travelling. We enjoy peace and quiet, in fact we thrive on it. If we are guests, you won't even know we are there. One of us is semi-retired with plans to be fully retired by mid-2017. The other one will be working a few more years then retiring. We will take shorter trips for now and longer trips once we are both retired. We love the outdoors, wilderness hiking, canoeing, exploring. Have been sailors and owned a cruising sailboat for many years (but not now). Love being grandparents of three (ages 1, 4 and 20) and hope to take one or more of them on RV'ing trips.

Skills & Expertise to Share

As a couple, we have a variety of skills (mechanics, computers, sewing, technical writing)

donnatravelling's Pets

We have an elderly dog, Daisy. She is part lab/part husky and very friendly. Although we have had cats over the years, we lost one to cancer recently and have not brought another cat into our lives just yet. Our dog does not travel with us due to her age and health issues.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Anywhere interesting and quiet.

Great absentee hosts!

Ok, don’t take that wrong, I mean it was great of them to offer to host us while they were away. Add to that that they already had guests coming! The place was great, easy to find and bonus: no mosquitos! Thanks so much for really extending your hospitality.

Our stay at donnstravelling

Our stay at donnatravelling was excellent. We enjoyed a quiet night of sleep before leaving in the morning. Everything was as described in their message. Thank you very much

Supper handy location

They were very accommodating even though we gave them short notice. Very peaceful and quiet even though their driveway is right off the main road.

New "old" friends.

Lovely location in the country with an easy drive into Ottawa. The road in front is busy but the noise was hardly noticeable. It is always fun to meet a fellow boondocker who has the type of camper you have admired from afar. Chatting with our hosts was like talking to a long time neighbor over the fence at home. We hardly touched on the things to do in Ottawa so we will be back to this nice location.
