“As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness.” – Henry David Thoreau
Byobnb's mission is to create a vast network of secure parking spots by providing a service that will be mutually beneficial to all who use it.
Early in 2012, my employer relocated me to Boulder County, Colorado. While living there and traveling around the western states of the US, I consistently saw people living out of mobile villa's; like RV's and trailers to converted vans and buses and even minivans and cars.
When outside of nature, these mobile dwellers were usually parking on a side street, with no security, running the risk of being asked to move or ticketed by authorities or in a Walmart parking lot.
After I was laid off in late 2014, I took a 30 day, solo road trip in my hatchback through the Pacific NW driving over 4500 miles. When I returned, I decided I had too much space and stuff in it and started to plan my downsize. In the spring of 2015, I purchased a vintage 20' Class C RV with solar and a wood stove. #MVlife
At that moment, I created a crucial need to find long term parking on a small piece of land on private property and a willingness to pay for that peace of mind. If I only had a place to find it; and so, Bring Your Own Bed & Breakfast was founded.
byobnb.com is in it's infancy stage; the website is static and has no current search or matching engine, however mobile dwellers looking for parking can find and network with property owners offering parking. We are also doing market research to gauge the interest level and need for this service.
