Hosted By Solar Steve and Liz
Retired solar electric business, Quaker Humanist, peace advocate, vegetarian. Details: My wife and I built our solar-electric home in 1978 on a 50 acre forested hilltop. We ran a solar electric catalog international business for off-grid homes for 26 years. Now retired, sold the business and upgraded the RV. Love dogs, and all animals so land here is nature preserve with hiking trails.We enjoy motorcycling and have also several all-electric motorcycle/scooter/bikes which charge from solar power. On our RV is 625 watts of solar electric panels for boondocking and for charging a freeway capable "Zero" brand electric motorcycle we carry. Home Town: Sandpoint Idaho, 60 miles south of Canada, 70 miles N.E. of Spokane, Washington. No place better in summertime. Huge lake and ski area too, mountains and woods, good food and climate, well.... during the summer. Winter is very long, little sunshine, deep snow. Favorite Boondocking Locations: Anza-Borrego State Park and Borrego Springs town within the desert park, between Salton Sea and san Diego mountgains in California . Its not crowded, and the huge Anza-Borrego state park surrounding the town has free entry and boondocking in the desert. Just a few restaurants, all great, a few RV parks with hot tubs, plus state park camps, farmers market, music, hardware store etc. No chain stores, its a really small town. Also a good free overnight stop but little known in the northwest is Roosevelt Park, on Hwy 14, south edge of Washington State on the north shore of Columbia River gorge. Look for Roosevelt sign (no town there) about 50-60 miles west of the start of Highway 14 and Hwy 82 junction. This Hwy 14 runs the north side of the Columbia gorge from Highway 82 junction in the east to Vancouver-Portland in the west. There is less traffic than the south gorge freeway, and a Maryhill museum and Stonehenge replica along the route. Skills or Expertise to Share: Electrical work, especially solar electric battery charging systems for off-grid homes or an RV.

We loved Steve and Liz’ property! So quiet and beautiful. They’ve made hiking trails and a firepit and lots of decorative additions. Very level spot and excellent communication and directions. Very private. Wonderful place to stop on our way to Glacier. Excellent swimming beach in downtown Sandpoint. Highly recommend!

Really nice, gentle hosts in a beautiful, level spot. Made sure we were comfortable. Pure joy as we each shared our set ups. A scenic drive to the north shore of the huge Lake Pend Oreille. Nice City Beach and shopping in nearby Sandpoint. Horse trail rides up at Schweitzer ski area. You will love Solar Steve and Liz.

Very nice couple- he is quite knowledgeable about things solar. Level spot and a great view! The road up is gravel and a bit challenging but doable.

We truly enjoyed our stay with Steve, who graciously showed us around his property, gave us a shady spot to park, let us tour his Solar setup, and provided us with a map of the trails on his 'mountain top'. Steve is a genuine, practical and down to earth individual, and we enjoyed chatting with him. Would highly recommend this spot - don't be put off with the climb up the mountain to get there !!!
