retired, outdoor enthusiasts Details: My husband and I are retired. We love to spend lots of time outdoors - hiking, biking, canoeing, birdwatching. We just bought a little camping trailer and are excited to travel across Canada and the US exploring new places and meeting new people. We live outside of Peterborough, Ontario in a small rural subdivision. Home Town: Cavan, Ontario - a tiny little intersection about 1 km away from highway 115 - the main artery from Peterborough to the 401. You could almost miss Cavan if you blink when driving by. Favorite Boondocking Locations: None yet...this is all new to us. We hope to hike the Bruce Trail in Ontario and stay in boondocking locations along the way. Skills or Expertise to Share: Scott is a very knowledgeable naturalist and birdwatcher. Beth knows some of this too...lol. Beth enjoys reading, playing the piano, and lots of art activities. She speaks French well enough to help you with any questions you might have. We both love to spend a lot of time outdoors - hiking, cycling, canoeing etc. and we can give lots of suggestions about places to hike, bike, canoe, camp and go birdwatching in and around our area, and further afield. We are very interested in climate change and environmental issues - we keep learning new ways to reduce our carbon footprint, and reduce the overall impact of our lifestyle on the environment. We have started buying carbon offsets from the highly rated carbon offset provider - www.less.ca - to offset the impact of our travel.

Beth and Scott offered us the perfect spot to park our rig overnight. They are the nicest, most accomodating hosts, and are everything you'd ever hope to find on the Boondockers app. Beautiful area for walking the dog, and among all the trees and birds you forget you're not in a provincial park.

It was a great spot and Beth and her husband were very gracious hosts. Water and 15 amp service was available. Site is on a very quiet street and the backyard is a nice little oasis. Thanks to the two of you for being available and available.

Our stay with Scott and Beth was the last stop before getting home from a 6+week summer trek to Maritime Canada. They were about to embark the following day on a vacation of their own, yet in spite of their extreme busy-ness were kind enough to host us for the night. Had a great chat with Scott the following morning about our mutual adventures "down under", especially in New Zealand.
