Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Both of us are 57 years young, retired at 55. We lived our entire lives in the Vallejo, California area. Upon retirement, we permanently moved to our weekend home in Georgetown, California, in mid-2015. Ed just completed a coast to coast bicycle ride across the U.S., from San Diego to Saint Augustine, FL, with a goal to do similar epic bicycle tours every two years, and an RV tour in the alternate years.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Plenty of wood for a campfire (result of new log splitter!) Ed is an avid bicyclist, in the event any boondockers wish to go for a ride.
We have camped and RV'd throughout northern and central California since 1978, and may have some ideas to share.

EdC's Pets

We have a standard poodle, Clancy, and two indoor cats. One cat travels with us, the second is a recent addition, for which we will need to develop a solution for when we travel.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

03-20-2017 Just completing a two month trip through the southwest, ending with the 57th Escapade of the Escapees. We did not boondock at all, but instead spent much time in Palm Springs, Yuma AZ, Tucson AZ, Roswell NM, Carlsbad NM, and Terquilla TX. Visited the following National Parks: Yosemite, Kings Canyon, Joshua Tree, Saguaro, Carlsbad Caverns, Guadalupe Mountains, and Big Bend. Plan on a trip to Alaska next year (2018).

EdC's Hometown

Home town in youth was Vallejo, CA. We now live in Georgetown, CA, which is not really a destination, or on a route, but we gladly host when we are available.

Warm & Welcoming

Our stay at EDC was relaxing & refreshing! Our hospitable hosts were most welcoming & gracious. The peaceful park-like setting complete with fruit trees made for a wonderful and restful stay. We enjoyed the honour of being your first guests. Hope we can return the hospitality! D & L
