Preferred Check-in Time
Just a spot in our driveway in a residential neighborhood. Total length needs to be less than 40 feet as the driveway is only that long. Close to Kennedy Space Center and Orlando attractions. No shade and a slight tilt to the road. When available, we have a fenced in backyard with gardens and pool that we would share with guests. I work hard at keeping my calendar accurate. Please refrain from contacting me directly to ask for availability when the calendar shows that we are booked. Suggested Local Attractions:Kennedy Space Center and Disney, etc. Beach is 12 miles away.
Vehicle Suitability Information
Electric Hookup: 30A
What you do inside your rig is your business as long as it doesn't bother our neighbors. Common sense stuff, quiet times and such. Please refrain from outside activity without permission as we have close neighbors and little room in the front yard. Just ask first and we can see what we can do. Leave it like you found it and enjoy your time. Please message us with an estimated time of arrival. Please let me know if you are bringing a second vehicle. Thanks.
Access Road Conditions: Just a back in spot on our driveway. Slight tilt to the road. No trees or obstacles. Class B or C's are easily accommodated, trailers are more difficult to fit so small ones only and class A just won't fit. Check with me.
Hosted By BobnLori
Class B travelers Details: We are a couple of empty nesters that travel when work allows us to. I work in technology and my wife is a high school teacher so we travel during school breaks. We call ourselves travelers more than campers as we don't like to stop for long. We enjoy meeting people along the way and when hosting at our home. Home Town: Cocoa, Florida. Space Coast. Favorite Boondocking Locations: We normally go to state parks but have boondocked in friends driveways, from time to time. Skills or Expertise to Share: I have worked over 30 years with technology and in communication services. Also I am very handy fixing almost anything. My wife is a great communicator and people person. We have been very blessed and enjoy sharing joyful times with new friends.

Neighborhood is nice / normal American subdivision. Neighbor kids playing out and about, cars moving by quietly. We had assisstance in parking. Visited on types of RVing, space launches near by and travel suggestions. Nice conversation. This will be a spot to check for availability if we drive back in the area. We were honored to be able to spend the night. Great folks.

Bob and Lori are one of the best host and hostesses ￼I have had the pleasure to Boondock with. Bob met me when I arrived and gave me all kinds of information that I could use while I stayed and explored the space coast￼. Very knowledgeable of the area and we even shared an evening of conversation. very relaxing and pleasant two days. I would recommend to everyone

There is nothing Bob and Lori could have done to make my stay more pleasant. Kind, intelligent, funny, convenient location, I could go on but it would only be more accolades. I only live a couple of hours away and would have no qualms about going back just to see them again.

We have been at Friends in the Yard for 2 days. What wonderful people Lori and Bob are. Friendly, welcoming, helpful and attentive. As a guest you will receive a paper with all important matters and information. Very very valuable. We were even invited to their home so they could give us even more information. We were allowed to admire their beautiful garden. It is wonderful to come into contact with people in this way. This way you will learn more about the country and the customs. Bob and Lori many thanks and when we get home I will send a nice card with tulips. Greetings from Marjo and Hans from the Netherlands.

Very personable and accommodating. Sitting in their back yard by the pool I felt as though I was talking to an old friend.
