We had excellent communication and directions. Phil and Theresa have a wonderful set up that they are willing to share with fellow Boondockers Welcome members. We arrived early and found out where and how to park our van. Once we were set up it was time to head out for dinner. On their advice we went to Mt. Angel Sausage Company and enjoyed a delightful evening. After a quite, dark, pleasant, and restful night of sleep we left early in the morning. Highly recommend you stay here if you can fit it in your plans.

I felt like I was visiting family. We were met on arrival by our hosts and had a lovely conversation about Boondockers Welcome, RVing and Salem,Oregon. They were very patient with our hyper dog. We were tired out from a less than stellar 3 week trip and this host provided a quite place to rest while we regrouped for our last leg of our trip home.

Phil and Theresa are great! I'm glad I was able to come back before heading south. My pup needed to release some energy, and they graciously allowed him to sprint around their fenced acre! It was great catching up and talking about our summer trips. I hope to come back next year!
