Howard and Cathy as of December 2017 have become full time RVers Details: Cathy and Howard have been full time RV’s since 2015. We are retired (sometimes still work on the farm) snowbirds and love travel. We look forward to meeting fellow RVer's in order to gain experiences of others and an insight into the Pros and Cons of RV life. Cathy has enjoyed working as a Probation & Parole Officer and currently as a part time personal support worker . Howard is retired from Dofasco and retired as Auxiliary Inspector Ontario Provincial Police. We love to ride our Spider motorcycle. Howard has had in the past a Harley and a Goldwing bike. I saw the spider and said "whoopee" I need to get a motorcycle licence too. I turned 60 and got my spider bike. Howard got a Jeep. So that's how we travel. Our RV pulls the Jeep and I ride the bike. During our Covid-19 winter travel to British Columbia we stopped in Cochrane Ontario, and bought a cottage on a whim. Now we spend May-Oct in Cochrane Ontario. Home Town: At one time we were Southern Ontario Folks, now we are Northern Ontario Folks. We live 15 minutes from the town of Cochrane Ontario. In Cochrane there is the Polar Bear Express train, and the original Tim Horton’s hockey arena as Tim Horton grew up in Cochrane. There are lakes and rivers all around us for fishing. Wed and Thurs there are farmers markets in town. Favorite Boondocking Locations: We love country spots. Farms, fields and under trees. We have boondocked at Walmart, Cracker Barrel and Bass Pro Shops when traveling. We enjoy Florida for a couple of months in the winter. Our plan is to travel from one side of Canada to the other, then explore the United States. We have motorcycled through to Newfoundland, HWY # 1, down the Mississippi and the Blue Ridge Mountains. We love Boondockers Welcome and Harvest Host. We have stayed at great places and have had great people stay with us from all over the world, including France and Switzerland last summer. Our plan is to do lots more boondocking this year. Skills or Expertise to Share: Howard can drive all kinds of trucks, tractors and lawnmowers . He can back almost anything into tight spots so if you need his help, just ask. Pets We have 2 Yorkers, and once a year have puppies, Cathy still loves her babies.

    Our stay at 'Country Roads' was great. It was the perfect place to break up our trip to Nipigon. My wife Wendy and I had an wonderful evening conversing with Howard and Cathy in their home.

    Extremely hospitable, and allowed me to complete some upkeep on my rig roof. Very peaceful location. I felt more comfortable than at an RV park.
