The last time we were boondocking was in the mid 80s, we spent a warm winter in an RV in the Texas area, we had the three children along, ages 3 to 10. It was a great experience. Warm is relative, of course, but there was no snow, and I don't remember a frost until we got back to Canada in May.
This time it will just be the two of us, but are hoping to have as much enjoyment out of it. We enjoy the grandchildren too much to do this full time, but trips of a few months duration are in the planning stages.
We are at the stage where we have the freedom to travel, and are looking forward to meeting like minded people.
Our little town offers an outdoor swimming pool, and golf course as well as some sight seeing. We are about 2 hours out of Edmonton (West Edmonton Mall) is a famous mall worldwide home of the Edmonton Oilers and the Edmonton Eskimos... also Drumheller, AB just 1 and a half hours away offers a great Dinasaur Museum that families will adore. Jasper and Banff are a must see if you come out to Alberta... also Grande Cache, AB. is a beautifully scenic little place. It's like being in Jasper without the tourist scene... lots of hiking, fishing, and lakes. Alberta has alot of fine sight seeing places... check out the Alberta tourism website for much more info.
It is a 35' 1968 Blue Bird bus body on a GMC pusher frame. We did most of the conversion ourselves. I installed a solar electric setup on it in 2014, and it has proven to be a stand-alone unit without the need for a back-up generator as long as it doesn't snow on the panels. These days it is powered by a 5.9 Turbo Cummins with an Alison 4 speed automatic. Not the fastest or most powerful, but it gets us where we want to be. We tow our car on a dolly to give us access to those small out of the way places and roads.
P &P are a fun loving couple that embrace life with a smile. They were nice people to talk with and have stay at our place. Their bus is also a smile magnet. It's unique, well designed and built. Thank you for visiting us, and hope to see you soon.
They both appreciated the beauty and the simplicity of the nature. They are very respectful and kind people. Have a safe trip back home and i hope seeing you in the spring...
Very friendly We didn't get much time to visit, but enjoyed the time we did have to chat and get a tour of the wonderful bus. Very respectful guests. Welcome anytime
We had a great time hosting and really enjoyed their company. Looking forward to seeing them again.
We were very happy to have PnP as our first boondockers since joining this site. Communication was good, all went smoothly and we enjoyed a great evening together. Very welcome guests and wonderful conversation. We are already looking forward to seeing you here in September and hopefully in the future when we wander out your way!
We thoroughly enjoyed hosting PnP. They kindly gave us a tour of their bus. Beautiful workmanship - it is amazing! Delightful, respectful guests who we would love to host again
