I live in an older neighborhood with easy access to main roads. My driveway is basically level and I can provide house current (15 amp) or 30amp. There are many trees so a big motorhome would find it difficult to maneuver but a Class B or C would do just fine. My RV is 22 ft so anything over 30 ft is problematic. No turn around, so backing in or out would be necessary. Suggested Local Attractions:nc state fair grounds. Triangle area has many attractions from academic to cultural.

Location

Access Road Conditions: my neighbors both have large motorhomes in their driveway so I suppose there would be no difficult with the road conditions.There are trees which would be a hinderance for a unusually high profile. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: parking along the street on my lawn is fine if the rig can not be backed into the driveway. It is a residential location.

Age:

65+

I am retired. My wife died last year from ALS. I travel in an 2003 Isata Sports Sedan. Details: I am a retired independent school administrator and teacher of history. originally from Massachusetts, I went to Amherst College '64 and have taught in seven independent schools up and down the east coast. The last one is in Raleigh,NC where I currently reside. My 22' sports sedan is comfortable and compact enough to fit about any where. I boondock a lot because I need to stretch the funds as far as possible. My hobbies are biking and hiking. When my wife was alive, We travelled the country biking Rails to Trails routes and greenways of various cities. Currently living with my son, Randy who thinks a guy approaching 80 needs a companion. Home Town: Raleigh, NC Favorite Boondocking Locations: we love the woods, lakes and mountains. I admit to loving to stay overnight in truck stops, walmarts, and Cracker Barrel parking lots! Skills or Expertise to Share: I have been RVing since 1972, travelled across the country about 10 times and have 182000 miles on my Isata sports sedan. I can impart good information for newbies especially, if they want to boondock extensively.

    The parking was as advertised—nice flat driveway spot perfect for a smaller rig. Jim and Randy were extremely welcoming and generous, I felt at home as soon as I arrived and learned a ton about RVing throughout my stay. Most of all, they are good people and great company to spend a couple of nights with around a campfire. I would certainly stay here again!

    Great conversations around the bonfire both nights, and very welcoming to me and my current foster dog, nice neighborhood for walks, too. Truly excellent hosting.

    Can't say enough about these amazing hosts who welcomed and treated us just like family. We loved the dinner and breakfast together, sharing our stories including personal events and thank you for the lovely bonfire in your backyard. Perfect hospitality from one of the original boondockers.. we are so blessed. May God keep you safe and guide you in your onward journey.

    We were flabbergasted in the best way by our BW experience in Raleigh, NC. Jbeck is warm, engaging and hospitable, and welcomed us into his home for wine and great conversation. He has a longer-than-normal driveway for a suburban home, which felt cozier, and it was easy to back into with our small camper. He provides 30A power and water. This is your go-to host for a stay in this area! Thanks again! :)

    Jim was very concerned about our welfare and did a wonderful job of accommodating us. The accommodations at his home were excellent. A very woodsy lot where we felt that we were in the woods. We have made a new friend.
