Happy Grampa, semi-retired Details: I am semi-retired bought my first RV, a Class C, Forest River Sunseeker 2850. My first trip was 6,400 miles from NY to Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Texas, Arkansas, Kentucky, Ohio and back home with my adult daughter and my two pups. We couldn't meet with locals much due to Covid but saw a lot of beautiful country including Rocky Mountain National Park, Arches, Bryce Canyon, Zion, Grand Canyon and White Sands. It reminded me of how much natural beauty our country has to offer. I hope to RV around the country and see much more in the years to come. Home Town: Rochester, NY, upstate Finger Lakes Region. A beautiful area to ride my Goldwing during summers. Favorite Boondocking Locations: To be determined and discovered. Skills or Expertise to Share: A committed DIYer, my skill set lies between village idiot and rocket scientist (but closer to the former).

Raymond was very helpful pointing out the best of Rochester. His backyard was a peaceful place to relax after sightseeing and the perfect place to let my dog off leash.

Thank you, Wingman, for a wonderful stay in Rochester! Our host was very accommodating and went above and beyond to make us feel welcome at his place. The location is ideal, very close to town yet quiet at night. We enjoyed watching the fireflies at dusk. I would definitely recommend this place if you’re coming to Rochester. 😀

This was our second time staying with WingMan. Perfect location for us to visit our son who lives in the area. Nice residential location not far off the main highway. Would not hesitate to stay here again.
