Favorite Boondocking Locations

for some reason we do very little boondocking its hard to find a site to fit 40 ft mh and a toad or a boat
but as far as camping we love ny shore line on lake ontairo as we spend some time on the boat fishing

Good friends

Joe helped me try and melt a block of ice in my black tank while we were there in early January w/its freezing temps. Not too many hosts would do that! Anyway, we couldn't melt it, but it did melt when we got to Athens Georgia! Whopee. Joe & Kathy we count as friends, and they are always so nice to us. We'll see them again in 2018!

Wonderful Hosts!

These guys truly are great hosts, they welcomed our visit and only let us know after we arrived that a family member was getting married two days later. With all the arrangements being made and rehersal that night, they still found time to spend with us chatting and treated us like family. I soon worked out that Joe is a wealth of knowledge in regard to anything mechanical, so I mentioned to Joe that my generator remote start had stopped working recently, he suggested that the stop switch on the generator itself could be causing the problem. Next day we camped in a State Park, while there I removed the start / stop switch on the generator and cleaned all the accessable spade terminals and much to our delight the remote now works fine, Thanks Joe!!! and congratulations to the Bride and Groom. You guys are most welcome to visit us in Australia if you get to make the trip!! Cheers, Doug & Di

Very Accommodating!

Joe & Kathy were very accommodating during our stay in PA. When we arrived later than planned due to a tire problem, Joe was waiting on the porch to show us where to park. The parking is nice and quiet and offers a welcome haven after a long day on the road. We thank you for your hospitality & for the extra nights stay - definitely recommend staying here (and when they get on the road, if they ask you to stay, give them a great spot!).

Thank You!

I can't thank Joe and Kathy enough for what they did for us. I had 2 small problems with me RV and Joe fixed one problem and believe it or not had the part I needed for the second problem which he graciously gave me. The next morning Kathy fixed breakfast for us and when I asked if we could spend an additional night with them they immediately said yes. They have a very nice place to park and setup. We really enjoyed both Joe and Kathy and the opportunity to stay here. They gave us some items from their garden and some other things that made us feel very special and so thankful that we picked them to stay we. Hopefully we will meet them again someday, somewhere.

Nice Quiet Spot

We stayed one night at Joe & Kathy's, nice quiet area in the wooded area of Pennsylvania. Our host provided power and a nice level area to stay.

So glad Joe & Kathy were there for us

My wife and I were traveling from PEI, Canada, to winter in southern Mississippi in Jan. 2013. One of our boondocking experiences was with Joe and Kathy in Pennsylvania. They provided a safe, comfortable location near their home and got us hooked up without trouble. We spent a quiet night. This was our first 2013 boondocking experience, and it was a good one. I suspect we'll see them again.

Beautiful Location

This spot is near Allentown down a bunch of winding roads. I'm sure we would have found it with a map, but the GPS was invaluable. Nice level grass lawn. Pull through. We used our generator sparingly. Joe is very knowledgeable and helpful and is super considerate. Highly recommended.
