I recently retired on October 28,2016. My very first job I worked was B and M Racing Transmissions in North Hollywood,CA. Looking back I was so fortunate to have such a great job. We'd go to Bakersfield for the Smoker's Meet. My 1967 Chevelle was even used in a magazine advertisement. I really miss that car.
The company started a motorhome division by the name of Sports Coach Corporation.
Reluctantly I started working for Sports Coach until the gas shortage caused the company to close.
How amazing I might have been influenced by those motorhomes.
My next job was still related to racing ( worked for a funny car race driver) we sold domestic marble for terrazzo flooring and hydro fuel for the other race car drivers.
Looking back my job career after these jobs became very average.
I did work for a local school for 15 years as a teachers aide and school bus driver.
Luckily driving my RV is a little easier from learning to drive school buses.
I was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley area in southern California.
In 1988 I moved to Somerset where I reside currently. I'm surrounded by vinards oaks and pines I have almost 2 acres with my small home and my even smaller guest house that is currently rented to one of my friends.
I like to think I started the small house movement. For a single person it's great. If I have company my RV is my extra bedroom.
I have 2 border collies Beautrice and Boudine along with my 2 cats. Also chickens that I share their eggs with my Boondockering.com visitors. But when traveling I only have my dogs.
Somerset is my zip code address but actually I live in Fairplay. I'm surrounded by vineyards. Most beautiful season is the fall when the grapevines are showing there beautiful colors. Fairplay Vineyards are the highest elevation between 2000 and 3000 feet in growing grapes in California. Just 14 miles from Placerville known as "Old Hangtown" during the discovery of gold. Sacramento and Lake Tahoe is about an hour away along with Yosemite is almost 4 hours away. Travel the famous Hwy 49 and discover charming little towns of the golden history of Northern California.
I purchased my Class C in August of 2016. I think I was influenced by my mother who encouraged me from heaven to buy. It was her birthday and she loved to travel and camp. I didn't think I'd buy a 29 foot but the interior is beautiful. It has 2 slide outs with a outside kitchen and a hugh flat screen TV. That's what you call glam camping.
We are so happy to stay here and met the host. We arrived after dark, but the host is really helpful and welcoming us. We talked next morning and it was so wonderful to meet such a good person. We will keep in touch and will come back to visit again, thanks a lot!
Freedomelite couldn't have been more accommodating! Great conversation and a true joy to be around. She has chickens so she gladly gave us fresh eggs and even gave us our own green onion plant to grow on the go! So thankful we met Freedomelite and hope we meet again!!
My wife and I recently had the pleasure of staying with Freedomelite. We were made to feel extremely welcome in a pleasant rural setting and our host even gave us a dozen fresh eggs. We were very fortunate to be able to stay there on short notice and highly recommend this host.
