Our location is acreage down behind our home. It is pasture, surrounded with a parameter of evergreens, peekaboo view of the Olympic mountains, and Puget Sound. There are other homes; also on acreage, and a couple houses are visible, but the space is private. There is a fire pit, and plenty of space for well-behaved dogs to run and play (not fully fenced). Suggested Local Attractions:We are 10 miles from downtown Olympia, 1/2 mile from a saltwater marina where boats can be rented. We are one and a half hour drive from Mt Rainier, one and a half hour drive to the Pacific coast and the Olympic Penninsula. Seattle is 60 miles away (time driving there vastly changes...). Columbia Gorge is 2 hours away

Location

Access Road Conditions: **caveat to "pull through" is the weather conditions, as this is the Pacific North West, and it can get soggy in the mowed grass field. Rural paved road, 50mph then 35mph 1/2 mile from our place. The driveway to the barns is packed gravel, graded. It slopes at 8% grade for 75 feet then nearly levels at the base, where one can chose to park if not feasible to drive into the field. The length of rig should be considered, related to the grade from the gravel driveway into the field, regarding tail-swing, as it down-slopes (approx by 6 feet). We have many friends stay here, towing Airstreams without 4X4, and class A's and C's up to 45 feet with no problems. Cornering from road to drive is easy for us in our class A under 30 feet. There are no low branches. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: This is a small non-working farm. There is an open field that can accommodate the rig and tow vehicle. Most can pull all the way around/park anywhere in the field (next to trees/shade, or not) without unhooking. There is a driveway that gently slopes downward, and once to the bottom, rig can be leveled there if preferred by owner, or if we deem it too wet (winter) to use the acreage.

We are grateful, fellow-planet-loving enthusiasts! Details: We are both PNW natives, have been married decades, and stayed around here to raise our family in this rare region, that boasts a vast array of stunning natural beauty within a couple of hours' drive of one another. We are close to leaving our professional lives in healthcare, to pursuit of adventure, community service, and plain old fun. We enjoy backpacking, cycling, cross country skiing, and water sports. We recently turned our experiment with RV'ing (in our renovated Georgie Boy--which was very good to us) to a smaller rig. We've so far traveled 25,000+ miles part time, and plan to become long-termers. Home Town: Olympia Washington Skills or Expertise to Share: We know the area very well, and can provide information about outdoor adventures. We love good food, wine, beer, etc and have experience with the local fare We know navigation dynamics of the healthcare community here Retired nurse practitioner

    What a gorgeous area! Could have stayed for weeks! Hosts are amazing and went above and beyond to accommodate us. We pull a 39ft 5th wheel and could not make it down their driveway, so they offered for us to stay on a gravel "access" road that runs parrallel to the street in front of their house. They even cut some low hanging tree branches for us so they wouldn't damage our roof. Others should be fine, it's just that our 5th wheel sits low on our truck so it would have arubbed and damaged both truck and RV. So glad to have met these hosts and grateful for their accommodations and wish them well with their future Boondockers! Would stay again if in the area.

    Both hosts were extremely kind and communicative. Ours was one of the bigger rigs that they have had, a 43' 5th wheel. While it's do-able it definitely is tricky with that size. The land is stunning and you have great water views depending on where you parked. Due to the time of year (April/May) we opted to stay on the gravel because of the wetness. They have a very friendly doggo named Zeke who likes all the pets. The hosts gave us great ideas of what to do in the local area. We were lucky enough to stay with them twice so far and definitely would go back again!
