Retired on 16 acres in rural southwest Indana Details: My wife and I have retired to a rural property and built our house on it using old barn posts and beams. We have 16 acres with a garden, ponds, trails and wildlife. We are about 25 minutes west of the Indiana University campus. We no longer have our Vanagon camper. (Maintenance got to be too much.) We have friends come to camp occasionally and always can enjoy new ones. We have traveled to all 50 states and camped in most of them, plus Canada and Mexico. We have been to China, New Zealand (camping most of the time), Germany, Sweden, Great Britain (mostly camping), Kenya and Belize. Our best trips have been those with the least pre-scheduling. Once in Maine we rented a pickup truck with a hinged back cover and bought a surplus mosquito net to camp in it for a week. Talk about fast set-up! I heard about Boondockers Welcome from a friend and thought we'd offer parking space off the beaten path. NOTE: Cell phone coverage here is unreliable due to the topography. Use our home phone number unless you know we are away. Home Town: Bloomfield is just a little town about 7 miles west with just over 2400 citizens. We are about 20 miles from Goose Pond FWA, one of the best birding spots in the Midwest, and about 5 miles from the Tulip trestle, the 3rd longest railroad bridge in America.

    Very happy to stay with Mr. Ed. He and his wife are nice people and like to talk. He did all efforts to put me in a confortable place in his property. Also took me to a tour around the nice landscapes of Bloominfield, including the cover bridge. Thanks for your attention Mr. Ed!

    Former RV travelers now retired, Ed and Sandy were very nice hosts. Ed met us on our arrival and offered suggestions for parking in their gravel drive. The driveway curves and is not very wide and is tricky to get in and out of. I recommend for small motorhomes less than 28’ especially if a novice driver. the property is very shaded with an abundance of gardens that Ed gave us a tour of and offered my wife a harvest if some fresh lettuce. we made a fire in their firepit in the evening and Ed joined us for a chat. Very nice stay.

    Friendly and kind hosts but I couldn't stay. Parking too tight, driveway uneven with low branches for my 22 ft van.

    Great folks with a wealth of gardening knowledge to share. An amazing, educational experience. Arrive early to visit the winery just up the hill on the property. We pull a 27' TT with a 1500 RAM. The driveway/parking area was very tight. Cedar branches scraping the sides. Backing out was a bit of a challenge. I wouldn't recommend new drivers or anything longer.
