Back-in driveway on five acres in the country. Usually corn or bean fields all around, during the summer. Accessible during most weather conditions. Call ahead. Used to be used for farm machinery so should be stable ground. Quiet, no fires at this time.

HOST
Senior, Christian, Veteran and DW about three years from travelling more. Details: We are a Christian couple in east central Indiana on a farm remnant (5 acres) with a couple old driveways now grass, but pretty good for all weather overnight stays by fellow travelers. We winter in Arizona 4 or 5 months of the year. But our property is still available. Our son keeps an eye on the place and we let him know when guests are expected. Eager to meet other folks of the same interests and share stories and tips. Would prefer a quieter bunch (not loud music all hours). Well water is available, but it is very hard (29gr) and some odor (It smells like well water, duh!). We have no dump facilities and don't plan on any, but the price is right! We are in our 70s and have two dogs (not ferocious!). Let us know what the interest is and we'll take it from there. thanks Favorite Boondocking Locations: REALLY love the Southwest in winter n Pacific Northwest in the summer. But usually spend most of the summer "Back Home, Again in Indiana". Skills or Expertise to Share: handyman, DIY, appliance repair, general knowledge of mechanical stuff (not an RV repairman!) (2018) Just started rockhounding n making cabachons from the stones we find. Seem to be mostly into agates of different kinds.
