Access Road Conditions: We live one mile off of a hard surface road on a gravel road. There are no sharp curves or hills. The west side of our pull-through drive has a low hanging maple tree but by pulling onto the grass the branch can be avoided. The pull through driveway has a very slight slope in the area near the power pole. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: We have a pull-through gravel drive way that wraps around the farm house, with parking available on grass in dry weather and on the gravel driveway when wet.

Part-time RVers who summer in Iowa and winter in Florida Details: We are a retired human resources specialist and librarian/archivist who spend the winter in Florida and come back to Iowa for the summer. While we are in Iowa for the summer we would like to meet other RVers and talk about the RV life-style. Home Town: We divide our time between Florida and Iowa. The boondocker's invitation is for our residence on a farm near What Cheer, Iowa.

We were told right away that the hosts would not be in town to meet us, but they were still happy for us to stay! We appreciated this so much and really enjoyed our time there. It is a very easy, wrap around driveway to get in and out of, as well as easy to get level. The views were wonderful and the only sounds we heard were the birds chirping. There is nothing around but fields and open space. We were offered electric and water, which was again appreciated since we work on the road. We kept the windows open our whole time there and enjoyed the breeze we had each day! Sorry we didn't meet y'all but maybe next time! Thank you!

It was as though we had known each other for years. Glen and Carl are exemplary professional hosts. Turning and maneuvering our 60 foot rig (truck and fifth wheel) around the maple trees low limbs was easy. The spot where we chose to setup camp in their “Drive-in and drive-out” gravel drive was simple and level. No backing necessary. We thoroughly enjoyed an evening of fellowship around the fire, sharing and gleaning stories with Carl and Glen. The view from our dining table window was borderline Divine! We already want to try scheduling another stay. Even if it’s out of our way! :)
