      Larry and Rose Ann Hunter June 18 You can get an idea if there are any BW in the area (pretty sure there are) by going to the website boondockerswelcome.com before you join. It’s a great option in southern  Ontario where there aren’t many free boondocking sites other than Walm...  more

      Kemptville Kids June 16 We have accommodated a 40' Class A and they had enough space to park their Jeep in front of it. Our driveway is 66' long and 24' wide. We are Boondocker hosts and are pretty sure we could accommodate you if you are ever in our region.

      Bruce & Linda (Omnibus) June 14 Chuck was been a watchdog on the industry for many years, but it seems of late that the only news he finds worthy of printing is bad news.  The bad news is out there, for sure, and certainly needs to be reported, but (pause for reflection).

        Jerry and Cathie Bruce June 15 I agree that as RVers we should not be blind to flaws within the industry. “Camping” availability has declined and quality equipment standards are flawed. Repair appointments take too long to get because of the lack of qualified technicians. There is room...  more

        Michael Stortz June 11 Thanks! Love the dog. I'd love to send you some photos if you like. The realtor knew exactly what I was looking for and told me about it before it was listed. I made a below-asking-price cash offer sight unseen, which is apparently what you have to do. ...  more

      Mike and Donna Wagner June 10 Subscribing to all of those apps will cost you an annual fee to join.  Since you have stated that funds are short for you right now you might also just research online for state or county parks or city parks or  public lands. ~Donna
