Simple... leave it as you found it and be respectful. Avoid religion and politics. Alcohol is good, Illegal drugs are bad. Generator use is between 9am-7pm (exceptions can be made, please ask) We do not usually set arrival/departure times for our guests. ETA's are helpful especially if we are working with more than one guest on that day. It is always easier to arrive during daylight hours but it is not required. There is a dusk to dawn light near the parking area.
Access Road Conditions: There is a large Church parking lot that borders our property. You may enter/exit the property through the parking lot as long as there is no church function (Sunday mornings/Wednesday evenings). The road is a dead end with a large turn around. The address is clearly marked on the mailbox. Access via the driveway may be difficult with large vehicles due to drainage ditch/mailbox Parking will either be in the yard or gravel driveway. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: Tow vehicle's can be parked in the gravel driveway or the yard. Please do not park in the church lot.

Small family looking for weekend adventures Details: Hi, I'm Joe and along with my wife Taylor, baby boy Owen and our two small dogs Higgins and Ellie we make up the H****y family. We love to travel and explore new places. We have been apart of the RV community for about 3 years now and host boondockers as well. We love the adventure of travel, meeting new people and seeing new places. Home Town: We own our home in McGaheysville, Virginia just outside of Harrisonburg. My wife was born and raised in this area and we are lucky to be surrounded by so much family. I am from just outside of Pittsburgh, Pa and moved to VA in 2005 when I was hired on with the fire department. Favorite Boondocking Locations: There are a few dispersed camping sites within the George Washington National Forest near Fort Valley, VA that are some of our favorite. Skills or Expertise to Share: I am a career Firefighter/EMT. I hope that my skills are not needed but are available if a situation were to arise. Taylor works in the healthcare billing and insurance field.

We got a late start to our trip and we're delayed by a day and a half for our 2 night stay. Host was very understanding. Arrived in the dark, but directions/instructions provided were clear and easily navigated. We sadly did not get a chance to actually meet, but provided some excellent words of encouragement and advice on our new adventure. Thank you for a great first HH experience!

hosts were honestly great! i came in after a long time being at work and they respected my privacy when i came in for the night and passed out. they had mentioned watching football too which if i had more energy for i might have jumped on right away. not only that, but after i found a family's dog in the national park they offered to let me stay again to keep the dog in the area if needed. great folks would definitely stay again :))

Got there early; left the RV on the grass and went to Staunton to visit and see a demo of glassblowing at Sunspot studios Following morning did the very nice Skyline Drive followed by the Luray caverns Joe is very friendly and accommodating and his place is central to the activities around. Fairly quiet place to rest
