Motorhome owners often seek out Walmart stores, truck stops and casinos for free overnight parking en route to their destinations. Now they have an online resource to help connect them with other RVers who also welcome overnight guests. Veteran RVer Marianne Edwards and her daughter, Anna, have just unveiled their new website, www.boondockerswelcome.com, designed to provide fellow RVers a place to meet, arrange boondocking and provide references. The idea for the Web-based club came about because, like many in the RV community, Edwards and her husband, Randy Sturrock, invite RVers who they meet on their travels to stop by their home in southern Ontario, Canada.
Club members can arrange free overnight parking with friends all the way to their destination. Eventually, the mother-daughter team hopes to cover the costs of creating and maintaining the website through a small annual membership fee, but for a limited time, a free lifetime membership is offered to early members. The club is open to all RVers, even those who cannot offer boondocking space themselves.
