A couple of part-time RV'ers Details: My Husband and I love to RV and meet fellow RV'ers. We adore the National Parks and have made 2 three month long cross country trips in the US and shorter trips on the east coast and across eastern Canada including Newfoundland. Loved them all! We're interested in history, culture, good food and meeting local folks. Home Town: Sandisfield, MA Favorite Boondocking Locations: We have not done a ton of boondocking, but one of the best was at Joe Skeen BLM campground at El Malpais National Monument (New Mexico). Another nice boondocking location was through Harvest Hosts at Vermillionville outside Lafayette, Louisiana. We've only had one Boondockers Welcome experience as a guest so far, but it was great! We had an awesome time at Bayside Boondocking in Barnegat, NJ! Skills or Expertise to Share: My husband Ron is an excellent amateur genealogist and history buff and has written several history books. I am an IT consultant and love to figure out how to get the best internet on the road. I also love to play the ukulele. When we're not traveling, we participate in a community theater group.

    A 10 out of 10! I was there for fall colors, and they delivered. The site was private, mostly level, and very quiet. Plus electric! The property and pond out back were stunning. Ron and Jean are super gracious hosts. They even gave me fresh eggs and garden veggies. Thank you!

    This stay is well-worth the drive up into the Berkshire mountains. The parking area was level and well-maintained and the hosts couldn’t have been any nicer. From hostory leasons about the area to vegetables fresh from the garden, both Ron and Jean went out of their way to make me feel welcome in their not-so-small patch of paradise. 10/10 would stay again!

    my husband and i stayed the night last week traveling from ME back to OH. it was a long day of travel (9hrs!). we were welcomed by Ron, shown where to park our teardrop, then he showed us around the property, which is quite impressive. Ron is a wonderful historian and takes much pride in his home and land and the work he has done with it. we met Jean the following morning and had a nice time chatting with her and seeing their 5th wheel and all the places they've traveled. we camped near the chickens and drank our tea on the swing in the yard in the morning. it was very peaceful and we enjoyed our stay very much! i highly recommend these hosts and would love to return the next time we travel that way. thanks again for your hospitality and sharing your beautiful property!

    The parking is near a road, but it had very little traffic and was very quiet. The hosts were warm and friendly.

    This one will be hard to beat! You have the luxury of sampling paradise. Ron & Jean are hospitable, kind, friendly and an absolute wealth of knowledge. It was an absolute pleasure to meet them. We were spoiled with fresh produce from the beautiful garden and eggs from the girls hot off the press. RV parking was easy to pull in, clean and level. Barred owl crooned in the woods right behind us . Magnificent flora and fauna to discover. The swimming pond is divine. Lush scenery and atmosphere. local history was extremely interesting...thankyou Ron. We rate these hosts and the property ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. Much appreciated. Thankyou both so very much
