We now have an 18' X 50' gravel pad ! Hi everybody! Happy New Year to all of you out there. Picture is just to calm your heart ! As a host I just got done upgrading my agreement with BW . I don't agree with everything and I hope I don't get in trouble for posting some of my thoughts. I realize some of the rules need to be in place for a few of "Bad Apples " in the bushel. Let me explain my position on the number of nights that someone can stay. The new rule is 5 nights within 90 days and I do understand for what this Group was originally started for. My rules are a little different according to your "Credit Report "(I'll explain in a little bit). As hosts we try to look for places that we would like to be a "Guest " at so this is where a lot of our side of thinking come from. Now I will get to the point. Our site is on the Eastern Shore of Maryland (35 mi. from Ocean City),so we are in a summertime resort area that can be very expensive for a family vacation. Since I regulate our site and since We get the same "credit" whether a guest stays one night or five nights here is the offer and the rules. If planning a weeks vacation in this area and if you make reservations with us 1 month in advance ( and have a good credit score ) we will let you stay 2 weekends with the week in between with just one posting to BW. All other rules apply as if just staying individual nights.(Donations, Etc.) We want people to be able to "Explore the Shore " without breaking their wallet. Now , let's explain the credit score. When we get a BW request we look at your profile very carefully. We read what other hosts have to say about you, how many times you have used BW ,and look at what you use for RVing. All this is your "credit score". So,just like anywhere else, a good "Credit Score " usually gets you a better deal. All that said,hope you give us a try, keep your "Credit Score " high and go out and explore this Great Country and be Safe. Sorry for the long post and hearing me out!
Access Road Conditions: We live on a well maintained tar and chip (almost blacktop) road a little over 2 miles from Route 50 (major highway for the "shore"). The" easternshore " is flatland country, no hills to worry about. Our location is easily accessible . Tow Vehicle Parking Details: I have a large Pole Building behind our house with a large graveled area in front of it which is used as a turn around area. My RV carport is also near my main building with areas around it for parking. Pickups pulling trailers,and 5th wheels (around 30 ft.) can probably do a U-turn in the gravel area ,anything longer will probably have to back in the driveway from the road. This also applies to Motorhomes also. We have a 35 ft. class C pulling a Toad and I can't make the full swing. I have to unhook the Toad once I get back to the gravel area after pulling in. If you want to stay hooked up you can,or unhook if you like. we live on 2.3 acres.

This has been one of our best stays yet. The site was perfect with the amenities of water, electricity, shower and washer and dryer. We also had a covered picnic table and fire pit that we enjoyed the company of Jeff and Sue for pie iron pizzas and fruit pies and very amusing conversations. we stayed 5 days enjoying Ocean City beaches and Assateague state park, shopping in Berlin and of course the peacefulness of our campsite. This will definitely be a returning trip for us.
