Boondockers Welcome in OZ, Plus a Honkin’ Custom Outback-Ready RV!

Boondockers Welcome in OZ, Plus a Honkin’ Custom Outback-Ready RV!

Our video introducing Boondockers Welcome shared this clever way to connect RVers with free, legal camping on private property. Not only were we welcomed like family by our gracious BW hosts here in Australia, but we also toured the most mondo custom-built 4-wheel-drive outback-tackling motorhome we’ve ever seen while we were staying with them.

Doug & Di are not only Boondockers Welcome hosts here in Woodgate Beach, Queensland, but they’re fellow RVers… on two continents! They currently tour Australia in their beautiful 40-foot coach, which is the second one they’ve customized themselves. For their extensive travels around North America (including Alaska), they own a second motorhome in the States.

Despite the fact that we visited over a holiday weekend when Doug & Di were entertaining relatives & friends (virtually all fellow RVers), we were welcomed like family. Just about everyone we’ve met Down Under has been gracious, generous & friendly, but this kind of hospitality took things to a whole new level.

Thanks to Doug & Di and their entire family for making us feel so at home. We really feel as though we’ve made new friends for life. And a special thanks to Peter & Marie for sharing details of their amazing custom “Peterbuilt” (as in “PeterBuilt It”) motorhome.

An extra-special thanks to Marianne & Anna for creating Boondockers Welcome, without which we would never have become an extended part of Doug & Di’s wonderful family. Don’t forget that RVgeeks viewers get a 15% discount on their initial membership with coupon code “RVGEEKS15” at www.BoondockersWelcome.com.

On behalf of Boondockers Welcome, thank you to TheRVGeeks for capturing this experience on video and, above all, to our members, Doug and Di (Woodgate Wanderers), for being such a wonderful example of what our club is all about!

Thanks to you and Anna for creating a mechanism that provides so much more than a place to camp. It connects real people in real ways and has allowed us to make new friends half-way across the globe whom we could never have met otherwise. What better way to experience the joys of RVing than by making new friends for life. Thank you. Thank you.

Scares me sometimes how ridiculously easy it is to drive a big rig in most states with zero training.

This was a delightful video to watch.

My first smile was when you did the turn around at the welcome sign to show how close the beach is. What a pleasing intro to the area.

Peter's Peterbuilt coach is amazing and really shows how resourceful some people can be. I'll be willing to bet that Peter lives in a smaller town and not in a big city highrise.

But I especially loved the clips of Matilda. That even made up for the welcome sign getting your names out of order. (J comes before P. )

With Nikki & Jason's update and now your posting it has been a great week for us followers!

Hi John!

"Peter doesn't live in a big city high-rise" might be the understatement of the year! He made a face and complained about their upcoming trip being a "bitumen run" (on pavement), which he hates! We've been keeping up with the trip that Doug & Di are on... bush camping across the outback in their sport-utility (which they've specially prepared for the trip). They are all so rugged, self-sufficient and handy that it makes us feel more like RV Dorks in comparison. LOL

We're also thrilled with the progress that Jason & Nikki ( J before N :-P ) are making. Very excited for them.
