We have been traveling the US in our 21" Born Free Motor Home since 2009. Details: We are a couple who have been traveling the US since 1982 when we went cross county with our 3 children ages 13, 10 and 4. 29 states and 47 campgrounds and we caught the travel bug. We then bought a campground in Southern Maine and enjoyed running it for 4 seasons. Since then we continued to be self employed in the travel and building trades. We are now retired and spend our summers in Maine and winters on the road. We have visited the 50 states. Hawaii by air. :-) Home Town: We live in Naples, Maine. We arrived here in May 2016 after selling our Sticks and Bricks in June of 2015 and traveling to Alaska for the summer. We then spent the winter out west and upon coming back to Maine bought a small parcel of land on the Crooked River with an RV and full hookups. We fish, canoe, kayak, float in tubes and swim in the river. We enjoy sitting by the fire almost daily when weather permits. We are 3 miles from Sebago Lake State Park where you can swim, hike, bike or just enjoy the view of the lake with the mountains in the background. Sebago Lake is the second largest lake in Maine. We are less than 2 miles from the Songo Locks, a hand turned swing bridge that is intersting to watch as boats of many sizes travel through it to connect from Long Lake and Brandy Pond to Songo River and Sebago Lake. We are within 5 miles of Naples Causeway that offers a beautiful area to walk and many restaurants. The Songo River Queen is at the Causeway available for a boat tour of Long Lake. Delicious Maine seafood is available within a few miles to eat in or take out. Farmers markets are also near by. Favorite Boondocking Locations: Quartzsite, AZ Skills or Expertise to Share: We are somewhat Jack & Jill of many trades but masters of none. Always willing to share our experiences and knowledge and receptive to learn more from others.

Dick and Shirley were amazing hosts, not only did they have a fire waiting for us but they also blew the leaves off the parking area. We sat around the fire pit and chatted for quite a while and they shared their PBR’s with us. Their site is really cool and sits along the Crooked River. We hope to return one day in the summer to enjoy the river and nearby town of Naples. They also reinvigorated our dream of having our own boonedockers welcome site someday.

Dick and Shirley are a wonderful couple. The site was beautiful and just feet from a clear river. We shared in a lobster dinner around a roaring campfire and they sent us home with fresh picked apples and a homemade dessert. It was a stay to remember.
