Hi and Thanks for checking out our Hosted site! We are currently building a home in Idaho and will be unavailable to host on the Citrus Orchard for the rest of 2023 and early 2024. Please check our availability and feel free to message us. When the new Idaho place is ready we'll create a 2nd host profile for you to check out! We live on a 1-1/4 acre property with a large, main house in front (rented) and our small house/shop in the back. We only host travelers and vacationing RVers and enjoy reciprocating the hospitality we enjoy when we travel. We self impose some limits to the frequency and duration of guests so as to not annoy our neighbors/renters. It is possible I may need to decline your request even if our calendar is open based on how 'busy' we have been. We will not host 'local' RVers who live in their RV and work in the area. The main house on the front of the property and the driveway in front of the house for the exclusive use of the renters. Our primary hosted parking spot is in the back of the property near our home/shop and under large camphor trees; gets quite a bit of shade in the morning and mid-day. It's close to our house where you’ll be the closest to water (10ft). You can dump in our septic access with about 15ft of hose (please ask us to direct you). We have a portable power pedestal with connections for 50A/240V, 30A/120V, and 15A/120V that can reach all of our spots. There are over a dozen various citrus trees on the property which you are welcome to pick to your heart's content. Pets are welcome on a leash but the yard is not fenced. We also have a dog...Mr Cooper. If you have any repair or maintenance needs, we have a large shop and lots of equipment. Steve may be able to help you or at least provide an out-of-the-way place for you to work. This area is semi-rural and with that comes animals. You will hear dogs, cats, birds (large aviary 2 doors down), owls, and a rooster. Additionally, we have squirrels in abundance and raccoons, possums, and rarely a skunk are around at night. We can have, annoying mosquitos based on the weather. Suggested Local Attractions:Things to do 1. Victoria Ave trail / bike path (https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/california/victoria-avenue-trail) 2. The Citrus Park. http://www.parks.ca.gov/CaliforniaCitrusSHP/ 3.

I'm Cheryl. Steve and I got married in 2018 and are both recently retired from the corporate world. We have been busy building our forever retirment shouse. We enjoyed numerous months on the road before building the shouse took over our lives and look forward to escaping now and again. 2024’s main trip will be round trip from southern Idaho to Massachusetts. This will be our first east coast and the timing gives us the opportunity to chase fall colors! I grew up in SoCal and Steve is a Montana man, but has lived in So Cal for over 20 years. We only hang out at home when we need to and are usually road-tripping. We do host on the So Calif property (The Citrus Orchard) when we are there and summer 2024 we will start hosting in southern Idaho. If you need help with anything, Steve is a mechanical/electrical wizard. He is a mechanical engineer and worked in a variety of manufacturing companies (including an RV manufacturer). He built our current home, and we have renovated several kitchens lately, with several more planned. He built our (massive) lithium battery and solar system on our current truck camper. He's also a good cook and enjoys exploring new recipes. Cheryl has been a software quality director and project manager for major computer hardware manufacturers and has an affection for gadgets. She also enjoys cooking, reading, and traveling. We both like to hike and enjoy the outdoors. Our travels are online at; WorkingOnExploring.com and the custom rig build and travel videos are at YouTube.com/WorkingOnExploring.

House Rules
We try to stay out of other's business but we also need to be responsible to our neighbors. This is a very quiet neighborhood. We rent the house on the front of the property and are concerned about annoying those near us. We 'ration' our stay requests somewhat, so our calendar may be open but if we've had recent guests, we may need to decline. In keeping with the quiet neighborhood, we do not allow the use of generators or smoking. We welcome children of all ages. They are welcome to climb my trees and pick fruit (as long as its eaten and you supervise).
Parking & Arrival
For <25' long (Class B, Truck Campers, Small Trailers, Etc) - You can pull straight down the driveway, past the front house and stop in front of our brown fence. There is a portion of narrow driveway. We'll help get you oriented from there. For >25' rigs - you will absolutely need to back down the driveway. There is insufficient room in the back of the lot to turn around. We recommend stopping out front in the bike lane or pulled into the gravel drive and park. Meet with us to show you the path. Continue reading the Maneuvering details for more specifics and make sure you're comfortable with the narrow section of our driveway. MANUEVERING FOR >24' LONG TRAILERS/RIGS Getting to the back of the lot requires negotiating a somewhat narrow gravel drive on the side of the lot. OBSTACLES to understand before deciding to stay here: • The driveway is 14ft wide pea gravel when you enter. There is a concrete stop for the electric gate (which is always open) about 6ft from the road on the small rise just off the street. It’s about 3” tall and can be driven on but with it being located on a 'hump' and the low clearance of some RV’s, it could be a problem. • About 40ft from the road, the driveway is narrowest, about 9ft, where it passes between a tall fence and a hedge. Watch your mirror’s hitting the fence.
