Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We've lived in FL all our adult lives and have a Stick & Brick on a couple acres about 40 miles NW of Tampa, 5 miles from the gulf. We have invited boondockers to stay with us in the past and have always enjoyed their company. Well behaved children are welcome.

We are not fond of in-your-face, yapping, noisy, snippy, licking, or very hyper pets, but have no problems with a couple of well behaved pets that are picked up after.

We raised 6 kids and have 15 grands scattered around the country, so we are often on the road visiting & exploring, but usually home Nov through April.

Guests welcome for 1-2 nights. Can connect to good well water and to 15amp exterior plug if needed. Would appreciate a couple $ to defray electric only if using significant ac or electric heat, otherwise not necessary. Generator use is fine. Wifi available on the covered deck, provided not extreme use such as large downloads.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Former nurse, former computer systems analyst.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

We often stay at highway rest stops, Flying J, or Walmarts in between destinations. Would like to stay in prettier places, but our motorhome size & weight often preclude that.

rosegramma's Hometown

Hudson is an unincorporated town on the NW edge of the Tampa Bay Area. All the advantages of a small town but close (35 min-1 hr) to the amenities of bigger cities - Tampa, Clearwater, St Petersburg, Lakeland. We have nearby a small beach with a nice open-air beach bar, and are 1 -1.5 hr from world's greatest beaches (Dunedin & Clearwater). County park, Walmart, many other stores nearby. Weeki Wachee (home of the mermaids & great kayaking river) 10 miles north. 2 hrs. to Disney/Orlando. 50 min. to Crystal River (swim with the manatees!).

Happy Hosts

We were warmly welcomed and had a nice visit. They knew the area well and helped us with a couple of beach suggestions for us and our small dogs. We were a long way from home and they made part of our trip feel very home like. The coffee in the early morning at our outdoor table was a special touch. Would love to go back sometime just to relax with them in their lovely yard.

Lovely hosts

We feel very welcome,and they we're very-carefully when we contacted this host.This feeling became true when we arrived. Our plan was to go to the Dali museum, so we were a little in a hurry the next morning and we missed the coffee and the breakfast,she offered,and that was a pity. Thank you very much. " La Strada" Mia and Clemens.

Great Folks! Great Place! Great Time!

Wow! You couldn't ask for nicer and more helpful hosts. John and Lois are awesome. I spent two days and everything was perfect. They provided shore power, water and great info on the local area and things to do, places to see. I have two more wonderful friends from the RVing and Vandwelling lifestyle. Thanks for a wonderful stay, John and Lois.

Wonderful people I'm so glad I got to know them. They hooked me up with electricity water I even had Wi-Fi available. They parked me out besides her gazebo where we had a good time visiting. Hope to get to stay there again with them or have them visit me up in New Hampshire

Special People

We really enjoyed our visit with Lois and her family. They made us feel so welcome. When we left there we were headed to the keys and Lois went out of her way to help us with reservations is that area. A special thanks to her for that help. Couldn't have done so well without it. They are highly recomended.
