EDIT: When you request a stay, please include if you need 30 amp or 50 amp hookup and water. We are getting lots of requests now that spring is here and it helps us determine if we can host you. (Thanks) We are about 5 miles from exit 4 on Interstate 10. Just inside Alabama from Mississippi. We are close enough to Mobile, Al to enjoy all the amenities there and close enough to the Mississippi coast to visit their beaches and casinos. Pensacola, Fla is a short 1 hour drive away also. When you contact us about dates available, please let us know if you will need electric, 30 or 50 amp, and if you will require water. This will help me determine if I can accommodate you if we have other Boondockers at the same time. We have had 5 guests at the same time in the past. That will save a lot of back and forth with our messages also. Suggested Local Attractions:Just google Mobile, Al., Mississippi Gulf coast, or the Florida panhandle to find many, many, attractions that I am sure you will enjoy!

Location

Access Road Conditions: We live on a paved road. Our driveway is gravel. We actually have 2 driveways to our 5 acres, so entry and exit is never a problem. (NOTE: WE HAVE FOUND THAT OUR 2ND DRIVEWAY IS BEST FOR ENTRY DUE TO LOW HANGING WIRES OVERHEAD AT OUR MAIN DRIVEWAY. BE SURE TO CONTACT US WITH YOUR ETA SO WE CAN GUIDE YOU IN.) When you get to the driveway with the small white picket fence, go to the next driveway. There are no wires there. There are no hills, we are flat all the way. We have a standard size driveway so there should be no issues with getting onto our property. We drive our Silverado pulling our camper in and out very easily. Plenty of room to turn around without backing up or reversing. We have some beautiful trees, but also plenty of room to maneuver away from them. We have one 30 amp hook up by our house that we hook up to a day or so before we go camping so I can load with the air on! It would be available to guests. We also have another 30 amp and one 50amp only about 100 feet from our front porch. We have water hook up at both. No dump sites but we are not far from dump sites on Interstate 10. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: We have wide open spaces and shaded areas. Parking is not a problem. We own and live on 5 acres. So we have plenty of room for any size rig set up.

Happily retired and enjoying our life Details: We are retired and enjoy camping, riding our Harley Trike, our large family and buying and selling antiques. We go to 8 - 10 antique shows a year where sometimes we buy and sometimes we sell. We have been married since Christmas Eve 2010. We went to school together and used to hold hands in the hall between classes. Then of course we went our separate ways. We reconnected at the 40th class reunion and 6 months later we got married and have never been happier! We love to travel and are always ready for our next adventure. We like to play board games, Fast Track is our favorite, and welcome game time with boondockers. We have 5 acres and plenty of room for Boondockers! We also have water and electric connections for one 30 amp and one 50 amp. We are so excited about hosting! We don't have pets, but don't mind campers with well-behaved pets. We must ask all pets be kept secure on a leash as we have recently had an issue with a neighbors pet chicken and a boondocking dog. We have 2 driveways on our property and our Boondocker guests will use the 2nd driveway. So, when you have driven 2 miles on Potter Tract Rd. and you see a small white picket fence on the right, go to the next driveway on the right and turn there. Big rigs will need to swing far to the left when pulling in. Also, please call or text when you are about an hour away. So if we are not home, we can get there before you to guide you in. Judi 251-454-6585 or Tommy 251-490-8288. These are cell phones so if we don't answer it's because the signal here was weak. Please try calling both numbers before you send a text although a text will usually go through. I would like to mention, if you require an electric hook up or water, we request a donation of $15 per day. This is an approved amount by BW and HH. It simply covers the cost of utilities used while you are boondocking. And please pay this when you arrive. Lately we have had numerous people leave when we are not home and not pay for the use of utilities. Also, if you require hook ups, please add that to your stay request. Many times we have multiple Boondockers at the same time. Many are solar or generator users and we have plenty of room for them too. But I need to be able to schedule our plug ins accordingly. Thank you. Home Town: We live in Grand Bay, Alabama. If you have ever driven on Interstate 10 through Alabama, we are exit 4. You were within 5 miles of our house. We are a small town, but we offer 1 grocery store, 3 Dollar stores, plenty of gas stations, lots of churches and some of the best fresh vegetables and fruits around. Especially watermelons in the summertime! We live on the property that my parents bought when I was a baby. We are sorta out in the country, but we do have neighbors and they are all good! We have some pecan trees, pear trees, satsuma, lemon, blood orange, blueberry, figs and both Japanese and Fuyu Persimmons. We also have a coin operated washer and dryer on the property that guests are welcome to use while here with us. Needless to say, we love to travel, but we love to come home. We are members of The Cowboy Baptist Church locally and we will always welcome boondockers to attend services with us on Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings. Favorite Boondocking Locations: We have boondocked at New Harmony in Florida. It was very pleasant and a really good site. They had bath and shower facilities available as well as an honor system washer and dryer. We also look forward to meeting seasoned Boondockers! Skills or Expertise to Share: My husband is a retired Barber and I am a retired alterations seamstress. We still have a few customers that we just couldn't give up. So he can still do haircuts if needed while you are here and my sewing machine never gets put away. So I can help with any repairs, hems, or quick sewing jobs while you are here. I love to cook and feed people! He loves working on junk and repairing antiques. We also put our heads together and build many one of a kind items that we sell.

    lovely stay, friendly hosts. Nice open country area so quiet and peaceful. There are a couple of permanent dwellings on the property so there was a coin washer and dryer just when i needed it.

    What a hidden gem! Our host was very welcoming and the site with 30 amp service and water was perfect for a few nights rest on our journey west. We ventured into both Mobile and Dauphin Island. If we are ever in the area again we would not hesitate to stay. THANK YOU so much!

    We stayed 4 nights at this location. It's nicely located in a country setting but close enough to visit beaches and access services. We spent one day getting an oil change in Pascagoula and visiting Davis Bayou and doing laundry in Ocean Springs, 1 day touring the area around Bayou La Batre and the coast to the south and east, and 1 day going to Dauphin Island. Judi was very helpful getting us set up and we had a nice chat with Tom & Judy before we left.

    We really enjoyed our stay here. Judi was very welcoming and communication was easy. They have tons of room to set up, with water and electricity as well. Our dog had a blast chasing the neighbour's dog Bruno...what a sweet little ball of energy:) Overall, a wonderful stay!

    Very peaceful and easy to access. Judi was very friendly and helpful and the neighbours dog was so friendly and cuddly. Dauphine Island was worth the drive.
