Welcome! Enjoy your stay! No smoking please. Pickup after your pet. When walking your pet, it must stay on leash (if trained & in the yard, it can be off) Social drinking only - No drunks ;-) No fireworks, no loud music/TV, no loud people, no loud vehicles, and no loud motorcycles - detecting a theme here? <smile> Please remember https://www.boondockerswelcome.com/about/courtesy-contract/ Relax, be safe, and have fun!
Access Road Conditions: We have a lane that goes around the edge of the property. Because of a light pole’s location, RVs have to go to the end of the street, drive around the cul-de-sac, and then drive back to gain access to the lane. It is partially grass then crushed concrete. Hanging tree limbs aren’t currently an issue. I trim them back as necessary. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: Plenty :-)

Retired Military Couple; Love to Travel Details: We love camping in our Lance TT and assume others love camping in their RVs too. My wife and I are retired Soldiers. She currently works part time as an RN. I’m the stay at home guy. We’ve been married 35 years, raised three children, and have lived all over the USA, Europe, and other parts of the world. Besides traveling & camping, we enjoy meeting people from all walks of life, spending time with friends, and just spending a quiet evening drinking wine around a campfire. Home Town: Currently, we live just north of DeLand, FL. Originally, my wife is from Washington, Missouri. I’m from Miami, Florida. In the interim, we’ve lived in 10 states, a number of foreign countries, and trained in or deployed to a number of others. Speaking of DeLand, it is a pleasant small town with many things to do. We are near numerous natural springs, state parks, a wildlife refuge, a national forest, the beach, and many other activities. Favorite Boondocking Locations: They are like children; we don't have any favorites ;-) Skills or Expertise to Share: - Lessons learned from failures 😉 - Nursing Skills - Information Technology - National Security - History & useless trivia

We enjoyed our very first Harvest stop with Bob. Very pleasant and accommodating. The only thing we had (perhaps it is just us) but there are three HOA gates with similar names. And of course, our fault not the host) we went into the wrong one. Perhaps clarify in instructions based on our mistake. We will stay there again!
