CROWS (Cruisers Riding On Wheels) Details: We are both retired. Randy was a military pilot and a Human Resource and Training professional in his working life. Lori was a Human Resources Manager. After retirement, we spent 15 winters cruising our sailboat in Florida and The Bahamas. For the first 10 of those years a motorhome was our summer residence and means of travel between Florida and our home province of Manitoba. Several years ago we bought a house and a couple of years ago we sold our sailboat. For the immediate future we're planning to spend our winters traveling the southern US in our motorhome. We enjoy music and art, cultural events, food and wine, walking and biking. We are animal lovers and a little dog crazy. Home Town: Our desire to be near water influenced our decision to buy our retirement home in Gimli, Manitoba, a fishing village, resort town, and home to Crown Royal on the east shore of Lake Winnipeg. Favorite Boondocking Locations: The boatyard in FLorida where we kept our boat was our favorite boondock location. We've also frequented Walmarts and Flying J's and have tried a few BLM sites in Arizona. Skills or Expertise to Share: Reasonable knowledge of RV systems and carpentry.

    Hosts are friendly, level driveway parking. 20 minute walk to town. Enjoyed the Icelandic Museum and Park and had a delicious Pickerel meal in town. No WiFi ion site but a nice coffee shop in town has WiFi. We had hoped to do some cycling but weather turned bad and no paved trails in the area so we left a day early.

    Enjoyed a wonderful few days with Lori and Randy while exploring the Gimli area. Beautiful location and extremely friendly and gracious hosts. A great spot on the outskirts of town with easy access to everything.

    Had a great stay. Location is in Gimli and close to downtown, very quiet. Easy walk to shops, restaurants and the beach. My son caught a few fish at the Harbour.
