House Rules

Be respectful, no littering, pets must be on a leash at all times and pick up after them. Enjoy yourself! *Our driveway is new in 2022, and now cured, but could become soft in the extreme heat … so please no solvents, oils, etc on the driveway and please place a board (we have some if needed) under anything that might impact the surface, eg. Stabilizers, trailer tongue, etc We thank you in advance.😊

Location

Access Road Conditions: Narrow lane with some over hanging trees. Anyone who can tow and maneuver their rv should be able to turn around in our second driveway and back into the spot or vice versa when you leave. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: Plenty of room to park your tow vehicle on our property. We just had our boondocking spot paved in the spring 2022 so if your rig or vehicle is leaking fluids please do not request a stay with us.

host Profile

Hosted By AngandEd

Age:

55-65

Retired, we have done a lot of dry camping around our province and Newfoundland and now that restrictions are lifted we look forward to finally using our membership and seeking out new places and meeting new people on the Boondockers network. We have met many interesting people over the past three years as a Boondockers Host. Details: Active retirees. Home Town: Waverley, Nova Scotia, Canada is where we live. Favorite Boondocking Locations: We hope to have more experiences boondocking. We stayed with two lovely Boondockers Welcome Hosts during our briefer than expected 2019 US trip. We hope to continue our US trip before too long. We stayed with another lovely couple in New Brunswick in 2022. We hope to stay with more hosts in the future. Skills or Expertise to Share: We bought our first RV (class A Coachman Mirada) in 2018 not knowing anything about operating them. The former owner gave us a great orientation and our long time neighbours, also RVers, have given us lots of advice. We used the RV on a couple weekend trips and then spent 10 days exploring Newfoundland. What a trip! Since 2019 we have owned a class b+ and spent another two weeks in Newfoundland as well as short trips around Nova Scotia and music festivals with friends. We briefly owned a travel trailer when the class b+ got too small (adopted a 40 lb pup), but we enjoy the all in one experience best so we are currently driving a class c Bigfoot. We no longer feel like new rvers, but still new to using the boondocking network for our own trips. We have only stayed with 3 hosts since we joined in 2019. Although no longer new to rving, we feel there is always more to learn and we look forward to exchanging stories and knowledge with other boondockers. On the home front we are always working on a new project — renovating, gardening, or landscaping.

    Nice flat location, was nice to have a good internet connections, our hosts very friendly there is a fair bit of noise from the nearby highway. It was nice to have a bit of time to talk with our hosts. Thanks again

    The hosts warmly welcomed us and our dog to their lovely property and we quickly started swapping travel stories, as they are frequent RVers too. We learned a lot about their province and its rapid response to the ongoing wildfires. All in all, a wonderful stay. Thank you, Angela and Ed.

    Angela & Ed set the hospitality bar so high! This was our first boondocking experience. They are so friendly and make you feel so at home. Thank you so much Angela & Ed. If we ship our motorhome back from Halifax we will stop by again :) Greetings from Robert & Ingrid
