Large backyard (great for dogs) with long straight concrete driveway. Parking spot is great for small RVs which can turn around in an space about twice their length, or anyone with a larger RV who can manage to back down my driveway. Park on the concrete in front of my RV barn or on the grass under some shade trees to the side. Murphy is a small town in the NE corner of the DFW Metroplex, about 5 miles east of Plano off US-75. I'm located about a mile from a Super Walmart, Target, Lowes and various other smaller stores and shops.
Currently backyard isn't completely fenced, so dogs need to be watched or kept on a leash.
None yet, but if things get out of hand I may have to add some. :-)
City streets in a quiet residential neighborhood. Concrete driveway from the street into the backyard parking spot. Must be able to with back down or back out of the driveway or be able to turn around in the backyard in a space about 30'x30'. The street I'm on is residential in width and the turn into my driveway is a right angle, so trailers and 5th wheels would have difficulties getting in unless you're a really accomplished professional driver.
Fairly large backyard with a long driveway. The driveway has room to park an RV and tow vehicle without blocking access for other vehicles (like mine).
I'm retired and space is available whenever I'm not out RVing myself.
The electrical hookup is primarily 30Amp/120v. There is a 40Amp/220v connection that will work for most 50Amp RVs if not trying to run multiple A/Cs at once.
I don't have a standard RV dump, however I have a macerator setup that I use with my RV which can be used in a pinch on any RV.
Since I can provide power and I live in a quiet residential area, I've shown no generators allowed. However they can be used during the day in a pinch if necessary.
DART light rail station is about 5 miles away. The DART trains and buses can get you just about anywhere in the DFW Metroplex. Southfork Ranch is about 3 miles north.
Our host was very patient and accommodating to us. He went above and beyond to help us. We had a little trouble getting in due to rain and he helped us get in and cleaned up behind us. His patience and grace was amazing. This was our first time and we could not have asked for a better host. His location was great for the RV and great in relation to Dallas. He also has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to rving.
Thanks for everything!
Great welcoming host. He helped us back down the drive way. The neighborhood was central to where we needed to be and quiet. I felt very safe staying here
While I attended a conference in Dallas on Friday, Bob helped my wife clean our motorhome tires to prep them for RenewProtect tire treatment. Then on Saturday, Bob gave me some more good tips as I treated my tires with RenewProtect (a great product btw). Thanks again Bob for such a pleasant, productive stay!
We were in need of wi-fi because ours crashed and BobinMurphy has a strong secure signal for his guest. It was a good stop the host is very knowledgeable of the area and answered all my computer server questions. I didn't get to quiz him as much as I wanted just plain run out of time. Get ready BobinMurphy we will see ya again someday!
We really enjoyed our couple of days here. Bob is a great guy, really friendly and knowledgable. His help and assistance with some jobs on our rig was invaluable.
He is an absolute genius! No joke! He is also very welcoming and so considerate. He knew the Darts (local train 🚊) that we should take everywhere and also the best places to eat. He lived on a culdesac Street which was perfect for my children and I to walk and bike on. He also knows everything about rv-ing! Such a wonderful person. We are so happy to have met him!
Bob was our first experience with boondocking. we were also brand new to owning an rv. Bob helped us so much with all of his life experiences and knowledge. i took many notes! his property is beautiful and is in a great location to sightsee.
Bob was a very nice guy and very helpful enjoyed talking to him and him sharing his knowledge...
Bob hosted me and my pup for 3 nights and was so accommodating. He offered water and electric, and I was parked on a nice dry and level surface that was fenced in. The neighborhood is beautiful and upscale. It is a slightly narrow drive like he mentions in his post, so you have to be able to back up well. Bob is so well travelled and has a lot of stories and knowledge. I look forward to looking at his personal webpage and many pictures of the places he's been. I cannot recommend Bob enough!!
Gave us useful info for where else we might boondock. Helpful even though we did not stay there.
