Our home is in a small St. Croix River community, 18 minutes from St. Paul and 31 minutes from Minneapolis, MN. We can offer a spot to explore the quaint, old river communities north and south of I-94 or quiet place to come back and rest after exploring the Twin Cities. I am excited to be able to host after having been hosted at so many wonderful properties in the past years! Unfortunately, I am going to limit the size for awhile as after only the second guest, my neighbors made a big deal about me hosting. So to get them use to seeing rigs in our drive, I am limiting the space to Class B, B+ and truck campers.

Solo Jeweler on roads less traveled Details: My name is Catherine and I just recently lost my co-pilot Sitka, my Swiss shepherd. I will miss his companionship. 2019 was my first year traveling without him. Have to get use to traveling alone. The hubby decided this on the road travel isn't for him; however, he might accompany me on a short weekend trip. I am retired teacher living back in Minnesota. We left SoFlo a year ago. I have worked with high school students in all areas of social justice and now more than ever I need to find safe places to be. Boondockers Welcome has been a wonderful resource while out on the road. I took my first solo trip the fall of 2016 to escape the oppressive heat and headed into the Blue Ridge Mountains. I drove the Eastern Seaboard and Outer Banks back to SoFlo. It was 32 days of wonder and bliss. 2017 took us to Wyoming and 2018 we were back in the eastern mountains. In 2019 my 10 year old grand daughter hit the road with me for part of the time, what an adventure we had. 2020 was crazy, right?! I had 2 trips get cancelled. But, I made it to the Mighty 5 in October. 2021 has me fully vaccinated and continuing covid safety practices, I took my grandson on Route 66 End to End last summer. I look forward to meeting wonderful new folks and finding community all along the road. Home Town: Now living in Lakeland Shores, MN a rivertown on the St. Croix Favorite Boondocking Locations: I love travelling period! Ok, that's an exclamation mark.... I almost never travel interstate and the rural highways and bi-ways are my heartbeat. I had a travel trailer before the class B and spent 3 months in New Mexico traveling Route 66 back to Duluth, MN. We transplanted ourselves to Southern Florida, but have now returned home to Minnesota. Skills or Expertise to Share: Retired teacher and now jeweler. I often take my wares on the road with me.

    Catherine and Gerard were very welcoming, and set us up in a perfect spot. Their shaded driveway, with easy access to 30amp was perfect for our Class B. It was wonderful to hear about Catherine’s extensive travel, in her class B, giving us great suggestions for our future trips. My wife was thrilled to look through Catherine’s hand crafted jewelry, and came away with some beautiful earrings that will always remind us of the very pleasant stay we had in Minnesota.

    Great spot, lovely hosts. I needed to work due to a client emergency and was able to do so. Thanks!

    Catherine and Gerard are great hosts and they've got a beautifully landscaped spot for their BW overnighters, a nice level paved driveway, and 30 amp to boot. We spent time on the back deck sharing RV stories and some beverages - see you in Tuscon!
