Rvers since 2004. No longer RV. Details: We are retired and loved travelling in our RVs. Our first rig was an older motorhome, which we took on a short trip to see if we would like Rving. We both had the best time. We took that first rig on a trip to south Texas for the winter. We then bought a brand new Class A motorhome in 2005 and sold it in 2012 after a couple of years of not being able to travel much. We then owned two new Fifth Wheel Trailers. We foowed up with a travel trailer so we could continue to enjoy travelling across Canada and the U.S. exploring new places, meeting new people and seeing the beautiful countryside we live in. We sold it during Covid and bought a 40 foot trailer in a campground on Upper Rideau Lake, which is now where we spend much of our summer. Home Town: Orleans is located on Highway 417, approximately 25 km east of Ottawa (Canada's capital city). Favorite Boondocking Locations: Interstate Rest areas, casinos, the odd Walmart or Flying J. We have also spent a night at a Camping World (with electricity). Our preferred locations are definitely rest areas and casinos. Skills or Expertise to Share: We are both pretty handy and have done many DIY home renovation projects. Jenne loves to cook, make greeting cards and has computer skills. Marcel is our all around handy man who likes to do wood work, read and paint in his spare time.

We had a pleasant stay although didn’t get a chance to meet the hosts in person. Nonetheless they were very helpful and accommodating for our stay. We wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again.

We thought we had left a referral or these kind people when we confirm the check out however it's so important that we do say a few words about them we're going to do it here as well. Jen and Marcel went out of their way to ensure we were set up and comfortable. Such lovely people they had electric connected to our vehicle and their vehicle leveled in their parking area within minutes of arrival. We also got to visit and tour their fifth wheel which they have recently sold. Coffee and chatting on the deck until it was too dark to see the amazing pictures in their photo books was just an added highlight of our stay. These Hosts made us feel so welcome with coffee time and chatting about places they've been and places we should and should not go. Their years of experience made us even more excited on the adventures we have ahead of us. They set us up to receive a bonus when we signed up for Passport America which we already have done. Thanks for the tip and thanks for the 3-month extension on our membership. Their home is a short drive from Ottawa and was a great stopover point for us. We hope to see them both on our future travels and perhaps will dropping again to stay for a night. Thank you for your hospitality and your generous spirit.
