About
ATTENTION! Current Health issues regrettably cause us to suspend hosting. Hopefully can resume later ( Maybe late March, but it's still iffy.) Note: will not accept reservation without a contact phone #. Can't accept reservations more than 30days ahead.. Please allow ample time to reply to requests (2 - 24 hrs.). We have a large yard (a few acres) in a semi-rural area. We offer a patio, patio table and chairs. Could accomodate up to 35ft MH or 30 ft trailer with a tow vehicle.. Many nearby conveniences (see 'Local Attractions' below). At this time, we cannot accept pets, as our son's family with 2 dogs are staying w/us temporarily & their dogs do not get along with other dogs & would bark incessantly if another dog was in the yard) We have 15 amp exterior plugs as well as spigots available with good well water. Wifi available to most if you have a decent receiver booster. Ask for password. 1-2 nights. If longer needed, lets talk. Suggested Local Attractions:Hudson is an unincorporated area of Pasco county that has developed immensely over the 50 yrs we've lived here, so almost anything is available very close by.

UPDATE!!! Recent health issues require us to deny requests from Oct thru Dec'23. Expect to open up in January. We are Floridians who have enjoyed RVing for years, but lately are mostly homebound. Details: Lived in FL all our adult lives and have a Stick & Brick on a few acres about 40 miles NW of Tampa, 5 miles from the gulf. We've hosted many boondockers in the past and have always enjoyed their company. Well behaved children & pets have been welcome in past. Our situation has changed, as our son & family are now living with us & have 2 small very friendly dogs, 1 of which hates other dogs & will bark incessantly if another dog is nearby, therefore we no longer accept pets unless they are kept inside your RV at all times. Guests are welcome for 1-2 nights. Can connect to good well water and to 15amp exterior plug if needed. ONLY if using SIGNIFICANT ac or electric heat, would appreciate a couple $ to defray cost, but otherwise not necessary. Generator use is possible, depending where in our large yard you are parked. (Ask about appropriate times, as son works 11p-7a shift & sleeps 11a-8p). Wifi available, provided not extreme use such as large downloads. Some folks have difficulty connecting if they don't have a strong reciever or booster. Home Town: Hudson is an unincorporated town on the NW edge of the Tampa Bay Area. All the advantages of a small town but close (35 min-1 hr) to the amenities of bigger cities - Tampa, Clearwater, St Petersburg, Lakeland. We have nearby a small beach with a nice open-air beach bar& restaurant, ideal for sunset viewing and are 45 min -1.5 hr from world's greatest beaches (Dunedin & Clearwater). A very nice County park (walking trail, tennis, ballfields, racketball, playground, splash area, pool)1/2 mile; 6 reastaurants within 1.5 mile, propane 1/2 m, Dollar General & Circle K 1/2m; Publix, CVS & Walgreens:1.5 m, Aldi 4m, Walmart 5m; many other businesses nearby. Hospital/Trauma Center 3 mi; SunWest Beach & Water Park 6 m NW, Weeki Wachee State Park (home of the mermaids & great kayaking river) 10 miles north. 2 hrs. to Disney/Orlando. 50 min. to Crystal River (swim with the manatees!). Favorite Boondocking Locations: not doing much traveling recently, Hope to again in the future. Skills or Expertise to Share: Former RN nurse, former computer systems analyst. John is fairly knowledgeable about basic automotive, RV, plumbing, & electrical issues, though not as physically capable as in the past.

House Rules
Just common sense curtesy. Inform us by TEXT or phone call.(NOT the BW messaging service. It's too cumbersome!) of expected arrival time (12 to 24 hrs ahead & again 30 - 90 mins ahead). Do not arrive when we are not here to welcome you. We also prefer to be here when you leave, unless we make plans otherwise because of a conflict of schedules. Inform us of any difficulties that we may be able to help with. Glad to help, offer advice if we can, even early or late. You can call, text, or knock on rear sliding glass door (if we're home). Upon arrival (to avoid having to back up), just barely pull part way through gate, enough to get rig off the road. STOP. HONK a few times or call us. We will come out to direct you which side of house to go, depending on your preferences. You may need to turn sharp left across front yard or go slightly right to go around back. Often best to get out, walk around, & decide which will be most suitable for your rig. Vans or very tiny RVs will have no problem turning around anywhere in yard to get best situated. Later rigs need to assess situation before proceeding..Bagged trash or recyclables can be placed in appropriate trash cans ( ask about location).
Parking & Arrival
Access Road Conditions: Short distance (1 - 2 miles) from multi-lane highways. All paved roads, clear, easy access until getting in the gate. Small & medium sized rigs are easy in & out. Our driveway/gate/mailbox/ditch configuration makes anything larger than a 35ft motorhome or a 30ft travel trailer difficult or imposible to get in our yard. (Our son's 30ft TT pulled by a E350 van barely fits). I would think a 35ft 5th wheel would be okay except possibly some large limbs may be an issue for very tall rigs. Driving over fairly level solid grassy area circling our house generally requires no backing. Easy in & out. (Some soft/sandy areas to avoid, thus, need our direction.) Tow Vehicle Parking Details: Towed vehicle or tow vehicle can stay attached or parked separately (in yard only, no street parking). There are level areas available. Easy drive over grassy area makes complete circle around house, so backing is usually not necessary. Other than tightness at front gate that requires caution when pulling in, it is very easy in & out.
