We can provide a van-sized (21 feet or 6.4 meters) paved space either on our driveway or on the side of the street in front of our house in a 50's-era family-friendly neighborhood. You will be right at the edge of the tree-lined street. Residents' cars will drive down the street. Children may play in nearby yards and driveways. Neighbors will say to one another, "Oh, they have company again." ;-) So please do be thoughtful of our neighbors and their children. Note: We can NOT offer guests WIFI but free WIFI is available at the town library a couple of miles away. Please do not ask. There is a dump station less than 3 miles away at the town sewer department (10 Pine Road) for a fee. Free unsecured wi-fi is available at the town library a couple of miles away. One slide-out or awning could go out over the front lawn if parked on the street or if over the lawn if on the driveway. The driveway slopes down toward the street (for drainage) which may require levelers for sleeping comfort. The town requires dogs to be cleaned up after and leashed when outside. No dogs on our lawn, please. By the way, early on Sunday mornings our Sunday paper is delivered to our front door and this could potentially interrupt your sleep. You would be an easy drive from I-295 and lots of interesting mid-coast Maine sights, museums, nature, shopping, and a surprising variety of restaurants for a town of around 20K people. (If our site is not available or your rig won't fit, L. L. Bean in nearby Freeport offers a designated RV parking area and does allow overnight parking). Suggested Local Attractions: museums, art galleries, old buildings and houses, and lots of restaurants are in this "foodie" town, plus outlet shopping, scenic coastline and walking/hiking/biking trails are all within easy reach.

Love turning former strangers into new friends. Details: Retired medical professionals. Nonsmokers and nondrinkers. Quiet. Parents of four wonderful daughters. Grandparents to eight. Happily retired and enjoying having more time to travel around the continent and to enjoy beautiful Maine. ;-) Favorite Boondocking Locations: So far, except for a wonderful seven-week ~10,000 mile journey across to the west coast and back in our minivan "Class B- camper" and now a second 7,500 mile journey to the west coast and back in our Class B ProMaster campervan, we've primarily boondocked up and down the east coast en route between visits to family. Pennsylvania rest areas have been great spots to stop for some free sleep time. We've also overnighted at Walmarts, Truck Stops, friends driveways, and national forests. We're looking forward to meeting other hosts eventually as we have more opportunities to explore. Skills or Expertise to Share: Love to travel, love to plan inexpensive trips, and we are happy to share our travel experiences and recommendations.

    Larry our host helped us set up our rig for the night and a fine quiet night it was. Enjoyed conversation and learned a bit about the neighborehood--Bowdoin College and its illustrious grads. Also his reference for the Memorial Library was spot on and we spent a productive hour there using wifi.
