This spot is on a paved road that is pretty busy during the day but quiets down some in the evening and overnight. Our spot can accommodate big rigs up to 45 feet long but is not pull through. (How’s your backing up skills?)😀😀 The spot is all paved with a slight grade for water run off. Use of leveling jacks are no problem if desired. Please see “House rules” for more important information regarding staying with us.

Age:

65+

We are an older couple traversing the country part time with our Pup’s. Been married for over 45 years and started RVing in 2010. We have 3 adult children and 9 grandchildren so spend time traveling back and forth between the northern part of Michigan and southwest Florida. We've also enjoyed traveling east and west from the Maritime Provinces of Canada to the western shores of Washington State. We enjoy meeting new people and hearing their stories and telling our own if the opportunity presents itself in a serendipitous way. Home Town: Alpena is a delightful port city of about 10,000 people. If you like to visit museums then the Great Lakes Maritime Heritage Center or Besser Museum might be of interest. For more on the area try visiting the Alpena Chamber of Commerce website where the list many interesting opportunity's to visit. http://www.alpenachamber.com/area-information/culture- Favorite Boondocking Locations: We’ve experienced many favorites and the majority of those have been the results of meeting fabulous Host. Thank you to all the Host who make this sharing arrangement possible! Skills or Expertise to Share: If I can lend a handle to any task and have the time, would be happy to help. Feel free to ask.

    Kip and Vicky were super sweet and welcoming. The driveway was wide enough to easily back into. And there was a nice trail behind the house to walk the dogs! They were super sweet to my son and even let him see their home and make himself at home lol!
