Title: Forum members with a free place to overnight
Post by: Tom on January 26, 2006, 01:11:52 PM
I've been approached by a forum member who has a place for visiting Forum members to park; He would like a place on the forum where he could list his site and to make note when the site is taken..

EDIT:

If you have a place where a forum member could overnight, please reply to this topic. Include a few details such ascity & state, size limitations, what (if any) hookups are available, and any restriction on time of year.

If you're a member who would like to take someone up on their offer, please contact them directly; Do not use this topic to request a place to stay.

Sure.  The only person to visit me so far is Pete Harpin.  Maybe if someone else would come I would have an excuse to turn Pete away :P  Seriously, we have room for probably 10 rigs but only hookups for one.

Anyone else with a site for Framily members who would like me to create such a place?

You can add "Peg's Campground" in Camp Verde, AZ. We have room for a couple of rigs but full hookups for only one.

That's great guys. How would you like folks to contact you? e.g. should I put a link to your profile and they can then send you a PM or email, or call you if you have your phone number listed in your profile?

Jim, whereabouts are you located?

Good question Don. Let me see if I can add a field to the profile, although it might have to wait until after we get home Sunday. I have some other upgrades I need to install first, but prefer to do the file uploads using my (fast) cable connection rather than my slow air card.

OTOH maybe folks don't want to list their phone number (?)

Post by: John From Detroit on February 03, 2006, 10:50:45 AM
Likewise I have room for one rig in Detroit.  Normally I park my rig there as the site has sewer, limited electric, and nearby water (Alas, the  underground water pipe to the site is broken, but the house is only about  70' away)

I can greatly i ncrease the power avb too if needed (normally it's a 30 amp outlet with a 20 amp breaker labeled 15 amps but there is another 30 amp curcuit nearby)  It is intended as a manintance site for my rig (not occupied) but it can be used for camping,,, I can move my rig to another spot on the lot

Great offer, thanks for posting!  I'm in Bloomington, IL and originally from Champaign so I know just where you're at.

Perhaps we could put together a master list (if it doesn't already exist) of forum members who have "free night" space like this available.

Here's a great resource for anyone with a VW. Any Model. It's basically a list of places to stay along the road. If you run into mechanical trouble many people offer tools, garage space and a second pair of hands. Don't forget to reward their hospitality, many Airs users list their favorite "beverage" as payment  :)

Just saw this, has your Illinois stay already passed this year?  We are located between Bloomington and Peoria off of I-74.

We now have 30A and water to offer to any forum members passing through.  Dump station available at a couple CG's within 5-10 miles.  The driveway may be a tight fit width-wise with our MH parked there along with a guest rig, so you might want to plan on keeping the slides in.  ;)

Hello to all.
We have an overnight parking area ,at least till the house sells,  for anyone passing thru the Conroe Texas area. Conroe is located about 30 miles north of Houston on I45. We are out in the country about 7 miles west on highway 105 just a mile from lake Conroe. It is a concrete back in site with 50A power and water, no sewer.   Actually its our driveway but its huge!  It can accommodate at least a 50 fiver or motor home. I also have every tool imaginable and can lend a hand with repairs when I am available. We also have a 40x60 heated and air conditioned shop (where our Carri-Lite sleeps) if needed. No traffic, very quiet, very clean and above all very safe. Plenty of room to open the slides or park a toad. Forum members are welcome to stop by. Just send me a PM or an email with a request and I'll be happy to supply details and our phone number. We are usually home for now  and plan on full timing when the house sells so stop on by. Hope to meet some of you in the future. Chip and Janette                          falconhunter@consolidated.net

1 free spot 1.5 hours south of Atlanta right off I-75

I have one spot for a rig in front of my house.  Would be for an overnight only as anything over one night is considered RV storage and they frown on that here.

I can top off your water tanks and give you free WIFI -  I can run a extension cord out to your rig and I got a keg of beer in my garage in a kegorator. 

All you need to do is bring me a nice cigar so we can smoke while we drink. lol..

My area is great cause I am 1.5 hours south of Atlanta and 8 mins from I-75

I would be a good stopping point before going through Atlanta.  I typically leave at 3:45 AM and you can get through Atlanta on anyday with no traffic. 

Do not try to go though Atlanta in rush hour anytime.  The road stops to a crawl.  My advice would be to come here early and get a good rest and start early the next day.

Email  zeekxxx@gmail.com direct if you need a good rest and free beer!

Hello everyone. I am Daniel a vietnam era veteran living in the pretty appalachian mountains 55 miles NW of Harrisburg Pa which has I-81 and I-76 running thru Harrisburg area. I am between that intersection and state college Pa off route 322 where i recently saw a ring neck pheasant running across the road. I live here with my 88 yr old mother on our pretty farm 300 yards below a 2000ft mountain with a trout stream running through my property that comes right off the mountain just 1/2 mile away. I have a camper / RV parking spot that mom and me use to use before i rebuilt this old 1820 balloon frame appalachian house. I also have an old log house i am rebuilding. Eventually i want to bring vets from VA hospitals here for a day or weekend etc etc for some peace and solace in these here hills. See my house and land at my site here = http://directory.ic.org/22661/Veterans_Mountain_farm___swords_to_plowshares_in_Pennsylvania

If your coming thru my region and can spend a little bit of time helping etc etc that would be great. i am doing this on a wing and a prayer but i am getting er done as they say ?;-)

NOTE: From 2000 to 2004 i drove a 96 minnie winnie all over the USA  for over 70k miles from every corner to every state in between so i know what an RV goes thru finding a safe place to park and be able to go explore and know your RV is ok and it didn't cost a fortune.

PS: NO SEPTIC HERE BUT I DO HAVE ELECTRIC BUT I KEEP MY MONTHLY BILL UNDER 12.00 A MONTH SO PLEASE HELP WITH THAT. I DO HAVE FRESH WATER HERE TOO WITH A TROUT STREAM AND A WELL. I REALLY COULD USE HELP TOO IF YOUR A BUILDER OR CAN LIFT 20 LBS.

OH THE PICTURE IS BEFORE I REBUILT MY HOUSE BUT YOU CAN SEE THE RV PARKING BEHIND IT WITH THE 2000FT MOUNTAIN BEHIND THAT ACROSS MY TROUT STREAM

I also can accommodate any visitor to Sydney Australia who use hire RV to tour my country. I am in Sydney Revesby only 20 kilometres from Centre and can have up to 5 RV in my factory back yard. Power, wifi and water is no problem. This would be great stop for City visitors, There is nothing close to city centre available for RV in Sydney.

Jan,

You sent me a message asking if I could accommodate you for an overnight stay in May.  For some reason I can't find any way to reply to that message.

But the answer is yes, that would be fun to visit with some folks from Australia.  We have a 30 amp electrical hook up, water , and sewer right in the driveway.  And of course laundry facilities.

My personal email is dougdeterman@msn.com, that might be better.  We are located in Andover, about 30 minutes North of downtown Minneapolis.  Another option to consider is to visit Duluth, MN about 2 hours North of us.  We have a small place there on Park Point which has parking for an RV.  If you google it you'll see it's kind of a unique place.  It's a peninsula on Lake Superior, the largest fresh water lake in the world.  But then since you are from Sydney perhaps Duluth wouldn't be that exciting.  Thought I would throw it out there though.

Tom this is such a great idea for members like me to have list of members with the invite to park at they places.
Is possible to have this listed somehow with allowed details like GPS , or address, or maybe on Google map with option to share this map to our members?
That would be such a useful tools for all of us.

I would not ask normally for this in other forums. But this forum is somehow different. Since I joined, I felt as I belong here. Extremely welcoming people here.

Cheers and thanks for grate work in managing this site. Moderators here are so well balanced.
I am owner of forum based site with much higher traffic and know how hard is to keep forums friendly. There is lot of strange people using Internet.
If some  members here are interested in Reptiles feel welcome to have a look at my website

Hi Jan,

Some folks might not feel comfortable having their home address posted on a public map and, in most cases, I don't know their address anyway. It's probably best that they be contacted privately for that information.

I understand Tom. That is why I mentioned allowed details. I meant to put down just details that members allow to publish. I understand that most people would not like to put exact address there. In my case I would not mind since my free stop is business address.

Name of state and town would be most important. That way when you plan the trip across states you look up for places corresponding to your route. It would be nice to meet forum friends that way in person.

I also understand that to create this list would be a lot of extra work for you guys.

I joined Boondockers Welcome back in April this year and have already taken advantage of it. Stopped in Adamstown, Maryland and meet Bob and Carol. Stayed two nights on their property. Definitely the way to go.

If anyone is in Niagara Falls, Ontario I would be pleased to offer a place to park for a few days. You can see my profile under the user name: Karsty

We have a gravel lot in Fairbury Nebraska without hookups. The city does have a dump station in the city park.
Our lot is a former car lot right on 136 and E Street intersection. There is a Pizza Hut and a liquor store as well as Bedlans Sporting Goods in the same block. You can get a good nights sleep, a jug of booze, a pizza & an antique Winchester in one stop!

We are in Palisade CO (abuts Clifton and Grand Junction) a mile or so off I70 and have an RV site with 30 amp and water available in the summer unless we have visitors using it.

There are a couple of RV parks - one in Clifton and one on Highway 50 west of the mall - but one (RV Ranch in Clifton) is over $40 per night and I suspect the other is priced similarly.

Send me a PM if you wish.

Thank you Clay, for your hospitality. I can't way when, but want to visit your part of the country.

There is a lot to see in this area.
Palisade has a peach festival and a wine festival that draw people in from all over the state.
There are several wineries in the area. Just down the street is one that makes mead.

The best peaches I have ever eaten are grown here in Palisade. Olathe sweet corn from over in Olathe and Delta is really good also.
Both peaches and corn are being harvested right now.

The manager of the peach orchard we used to own brought over some just picked Rosas yesterday.

We will eat some of them but I am angling for Lee to make a peach cobbler.....

Icame across this site today. Just bought our first RV (ACE 29.2) a month ago. Looking forward to going cross country next year or the next. Hubby retires next year. I made a list of all the offers and the states. There were 18 states listed. Hope we get to visit all of them and more in the future.

I know a guy that is doing a lot of free RV parking and showing people where. His channel name is "Living Free" on youtube. He's a bit quirky. But seems really knowledgeable. I hope I can post that on this thread?  Here's the link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9Yl9NlOsgfUR6jkKfTAgBQ

Jan,

We can accommodate an RV in the drive way with water and power.  We have, depending on the neighbors, even have had another at the same time.

Since we have moved to OR, we no longer have any parking for RVs.

I thought I should post this to prevent unhappy people.   ;)

Faucett, MO--I have 2 acres just off I-29 at the 35 mile marker.  Just down the road from Farris Truck Stop. very quiet.  20A power.  Welcome to top off water.

TT or Class C with toad can circle house--no backing needed.  Probably wouldn't work for tall 5er or big rig, especially with toad.  Steep breakover turning into my street from State Hwy DD.  I have backed 45' charter bus to park in front of the house several times though.  PM me if you think this might work for you.
