host Profile

Hosted By Solar Steve and Liz

Age:

65+

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 had a wonderful stay at Steve and Liz’s for 1 night. They were very accommodating and let us park our longer RV in front of their shop. would definitely stay again.

    Steve and Liz were in the final days of moving from their previous Solar home up in the Cabinent mountains of 50 yrs down to their current retirement home in Dover/Sandpoint, to which I had the privilege of staying on both gorgeous properties. Steve’s communication was clear, concise, and extremely welcoming with accurate directions and was waiting for me outside when I arrived. Liz came out shortly after, with a big welcome, too. Having full hookup on private property has been such a sigh of relief when having gone without during periods of traveling. Steve was eager to share his extensive solar knowledge with me and offer his advice for my own set up needed. My time spent with Liz was invaluable. Her insights, wisdom, perspective, energy, strength, and natural beauty set me at ease and in awe and the walks and talks shared were just The Best. The community in Sandpoint is phenomenal and I will no doubt return someday soon. Hiking is within walking distance and many trails in the area as well. Words are incapable of expressing my gratitude felt and hospitality shown that these two amazing and rare humanists example. My life is enriched after our meeting. oxo

    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.
