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.
We noticed that Peter & Marie use the same Pressure Pro TPMS we do, so apparently it’s robust enough for the punishment of the Outback. It was good to see that our PressurePro system is way overbuilt, since our tires will never see conditions anything like theirs do!
