Senior, Christian, Veteran and DW about three years from travelling more. Details: We are a Christian couple in east central Indiana on a farm remnant (5 acres) with a couple old driveways now grass, but pretty good for all weather overnight stays by fellow travelers. We winter in Arizona 4 or 5 months of the year. But our property is still available. Our son keeps an eye on the place and we let him know when guests are expected. Eager to meet other folks of the same interests and share stories and tips. Would prefer a quieter bunch (not loud music all hours). Well water is available, but it is very hard (29gr) and some odor (It smells like well water, duh!). We have no dump facilities and don't plan on any, but the price is right! We are in our 70s and have two dogs (not ferocious!). Let us know what the interest is and we'll take it from there. thanks Favorite Boondocking Locations: REALLY love the Southwest in winter n Pacific Northwest in the summer. But usually spend most of the summer "Back Home, Again in Indiana". Skills or Expertise to Share: handyman, DIY, appliance repair, general knowledge of mechanical stuff (not an RV repairman!) (2018) Just started rockhounding n making cabachons from the stones we find. Seem to be mostly into agates of different kinds.

    Had a quick one night stay. Wonderful hosts. We enjoyed swapping travel stories. A little slow to respond but worth the wait. Site is level and quiet.

    After being happily greeted by the pups, Molly and Walter, we were shown where to park and given great advice to our inquiring about a place for a good pizza! Pizza 314 was 10 min away and really good and we enjoyed talking with the friendly workers. This BW was a very kind host, their place was beautiful, very convenient from the highway, level parking, and it was a very quiet night....no highway noise...much needed after a long day of travel. Many thanks to this BW!

    Due to an family emergency I had to cancel which was done a week in advance. I did not receive any reply so I did send them another message but again got no response from this site. So I am still not sure about them. I certainly hope they are ok?

    The site was level and the hosts were exceptional. We enjoyed our visit and the fresh tomatoes for dinner. The site is close to the interstate, but far enough to be quiet. We would definitely recommend a stop.
