Having trouble replying here, I'll try again!

Location: South Whidbey Island, Washington (access by ferry from Mukilteo or bridge from Anacortes)
Highways: on island, 525, off, near I5 and I405.
Dates: June through October
Water: possibly, easier not to
electric: 115V, 20 Amp (if it doesn't blow a circuit breaker)
Sewer: no, nearest dump station at South Whidbey State Park

I'm across the street from the beach, dog friendly, place to launch kayaks in back of cabin, sandy driveway for parking relatively small RV. PM or email me. (The level spot is sandy so not good if you would worry about getting stuck; my Campster is fine there but it is lighter.)

We would thoroughly appreciate being able to stay a night or two at a gracious hosts' place someday, so will pay it forward now:

Location: 15 acres of woods 1/2 hour south of Mille Lacs Lake in Minnesota; 1/2 hour west of Grand Casino; 1 hour north of greater Mpls./St. Paul

Electric: 115v/15 or 20 amp.

Water: yes, but hook-up not likely at this time (either way, fill your tank with wonderful well water)

Sewer: not on site (will research for local dumps)

Recreation: many lakes and rivers nearby, a nice walking/biking trail in the city limits as well as a short nature trail at the local museum (and an even shorter one on our property -- with lots of wildlife!)

Contact via a PM to make arrangements.

Hosting strangers for overnighting is a little too daring for me, but I think the idea of being willing to give advice and opinions to visitors is a wonderful idea. I know if anyone is passing through Northwest Florida I can give all sorts of advice on nice campgrounds, things to see and do, restaurants, etc. Maybe there would be enough interest for another string just dealing with people willing to give guidance to visitors?

Great idea, Ray!

I second the motion!

I see it as a "subforum" like "meets", etc.
We could call it " Trip Planning:Ask the Locals" or something and people could write in and start a thread by telling us where they're going...

If I am home I can accommodate one(1) trailer at a time in the parking lot at the end of the building for two(2) nights. Unfortunately hookups and water will not be available but laundry for a loonie [$] and hot showers [my apt.] are. 2 minutes to the Newfoundland T'Railway.
Gander is a full service community. We have Canada's only Wullenweber Antenna array, an Aviation Museum, a Demonstration Forest, walking trails, shopping, tourism office, a memento of the Twin Towers [9/11], campsite, the only War Graves Commisssion cemetery in Canada. Salmon [licence req'd] and trout fishing and many other interesting things to keep you busy. Send a PM if you are headed out our way and don't forget to make boat reservations as early as you can. 1-800-341-7981 for the boat and 1-800-563-6353 for the Tourism office.

Fellow Forum members coming to southern Ontario? We can host one small fiberglass trailer with hydro and water. Lovely quiet neighbourhood just across from the lake. Just send me a private message if you are headed our way.

Just came across this thread, how wonderful! The parents have camped in our back parking area by our garage and really enjoyed themselves. So if you're ever in Saskatchewan you are more than welcome to stay. I have power, water and a little patch of weeds that loves gray water. Black tank can be done 8 blocks away for free. Just pm to make arrangements.

Nice thread, How have I missed it all these years?
BoondockersWelcome.com is an interesting site.
We are going Chicago to Santa Monica and up coast then to Bend Oregon and return to Southern Ontario. Are there any suggestions for safe camping along the way?

I have to agree with Ray on questioning/qualifying the idea.

First I am not a Grinch, and I have hosted visits by RV travelers from around the world at my home.

And, in the past several years I have invited 4-5 FGRV group members here to take advantage of my ample parking spaces, both to overnight as well as stay a few days while visiting SoCal, and that has always worked out fine.

However, about 5-7 years back, when my RV fleet was primarily Toyota mini-motorhomes, I listed myself on such a list, and found it lot more trouble and grief than we wanted to deal with.

Admittedly, being in SoCal makes free parking a big attraction as there is no WalMart parking, state parks and beaches are often full, and always expensive, and private RV parks can be out of site for fees and the local gendarmes will roust on-street parkers out in a NY minute.

And Yes, many did contact me weeks in advance and arranged for convenient arrival and departure times and were excellent and enjoyable guests but, seemingly more than not, I experienced the following:

1. No-shows; we would arrange our schedule and no one showed up or even bothered to call and cancel.
2. Off hour arrivals. I actually had someone knock at my door at 3am because they got "stuck in traffic" No calls, no nothing
3. Unwanted presents, meaning left behind trash.
4. Uninvited/unknown guests. As soon as the word was out, i.e., "Free Parking in SoCal", my address and phone number got copied to a number of what I would call "Freeloader" sites and all kinds of non-related Van and motorhome owners would call, or just show up, asking for a space for however long I could/would provide. At least twice I woke up in the morning and found unknown RVer's in my driveway, spending the night.

While I took my name off of about 5 lists (4 of which I didn't list on in the first place) at least 4 years ago, I was still getting occasional overnight parking requests until I just happened to disconnect my home phone about 6 months ago.

Soooo, if nothing else, never post your exact address or phone number, and insist that "Reservations" be made well in advance.

There is a group called boondockers welcome that has visiting stay overs very well organized. It is a great idea.
