Nice place to stay!

The hosts were very nice with us we were able to have nice conversations with them.

The location is beautiful, quiet and secured with a very nice view around!

They allowed us to fill up the fresh water tank and the terrain is nice and level.

We were supposed to be there for one night but we felt so good with the host, we decided to stay an extra night.

We had very goods travel recommendations from our host, where to go and what to try.

Thank you Andy101usa!

The Coolest 😎 Stay in NM

The host was by far the best experience first Boondockers Experience we could have experienced! The host, shared a meal, shared a swim and lets us stay a few more days to get a couple of things together in our rig. If you are going to pass through Las Cruces or El Paso...go ahead a put this location of your stop.

Peaceful night

Very gracious, friendly host. We had a nice quiet overnight rest here.


June 2019

Great overnight stay

We were fortunate to stay overnight at this location on our way to Texas. The host personally guided us into our spot, and had an extension cord ready. It is a level and quiet area that allowed for a good nights sleep. We would highly recommend this site.

Great Host

Andy is super. He introduced us to the famous Rosa's Cantina where we had a delicious mexican meal and heard the theme song played by a live musician. Great place to stop on our way to Austin, TX We look forward to another stay as we travel to Austin frequently.

New Mexico Badlands - Good Spot

After we parked, the host helped us with ideas to explore Las Cruces and El Paso.

One of the sites that we have never known about was Rosa’s Cantina. Reference: the song El Paso by Marty Robbins.

Our host explained that the host site is in the New Mexico badlands as mentioned in the song.

Our host was available to talk and share life stories and tales from the trails.

Thanks for a great stay.

The real New Mexico!!!

beautiful place in the desert! Breathtaking sunrise and sunset, with a host who knows the area very well !!

Thank you Andy


April 2019

Beautiful high desert property!

Andy has a beautiful high desert property and is a helpful host. A very friendly cat and sweet dog will also greet you when you come to El Rancho Seguro. Well worth the road up to get there!!


April 2019

Amazing first experience of Boondockers Welcome

andy101usa was our first Boondockers Welcome host and could not have been more hospitable. We were welcomed on arrival. He backed our rig into the space more competently than we could have done. He was always ready for a chat on any topic, and gave detailed advice on places to visit in his and neighbouring states. An extra night? "Of course."
Does it get any better? What a wonderful host!


April 2019

Kiwis on the move

Over the phone we had the feeling Andy would be a friendly welcoming guy and on arrival we were certainly made to feel very welcome. We dined together both nights, good music, good food, lots of local information and great company. Buddy, Andy’s dog was a big softy and very lovable. Highly recommend this spot. Close to Las Cruces. All round good stay. Thanks Andy


April 2019

Excellent Stay!

Andy is an awesome host! He parked us next to his house on a level site that offered much protection from the strong winds that hit NM during our stay. He provided great insight to the local area that was much appreciated. We enjoyed many conversations with Andy and now refer to him as a friend. Hope we are able to cross paths again.


April 2019


A little off the beaten path but a great way to see the local flavor. Andy very accommodating and happy to help. I had a Texas size head cold and was left to rest and the peacefulness was wonderful! Thank you again Andy.


April 2019

Such a dedicated host !

Andy is such a dedicated host ! Always making sure you have a great stay and also very helpful with rig problem ! I’m considering him as a real friend and look forward to see him again !

Nice visit

Second stay here and enjoyed it as much as the first time. Like visiting an old friend. Great stories and ate at a recommended restaurant.


March 2019

Beautiful property & Gracious Host

We enjoyed our brief 2 night stay at Andy's residence. He graciously guided us into one of a few RV spots and stopped in to chat about our journeys and share some advice. We are very grateful for his hospitality and generosity.


March 2019


We had a short stay here. Andy was very helpful in getting us into his spot. Located a few miles out of town and some country road travel involved. Nice and quiet country spot.


March 2019

Safe and Quiet

Andy treats us like family and makes sure we are safe and comfortable. What an awesome host!


March 2019

Nice spot with a great view.

This proved to be a great spot to lay over for a night. We did not get to visit to much with andy101 but the little we did was pleasant. He’s a very friendly guy and must be committed to Boondocker because he had two other RV’s at the same time we were there. Aside from a bad wind storm reducing visibility the views were awesome. We would not hesitate to stop here again if in the area. Thanks a bunch andy101usa.


March 2019

A real good guy

We had a good time with Andy and his dog, Buddy, is so lovely. We shared our supper, stories, travel experiences and tips. Our night was peaceful and quiet and you can see the city lights of El Paso further on the mountain, it's beautiful. We would stay here again.


March 2019

Great visit

Andy couldn't have been nicer. Spent a lot of time with him and had very interesting conversations. Hope we get to see him again at his house or at our house. Our dogs got along well too.


March 2019

Great views of the Organ Mountains

Nice stopover between Las Crusis and El Paso. Dog friendly with plenty of room for them to run.
Thanks Andy


February 2019

Favorite host

Andy is a wonderful warm host. Staying here is like staying at my new best friend's place.


February 2019

Great stay

We all had a great time with our host, he’s super friendly, and was very gracious to our family. We enjoyed sharing food and even a small road trip together. We will definitely be back when we come around this way again.


February 2019

Welcoming spot

Grand time, provided with suggestions of things of intrest in the area. Felt relaxed and will put on my favorites list.


February 2019

Great desert location

Andy was a wonderful host. Gave us lots of information for things to do around Las Cruces. He took us to a local Mexican Restaurant for supper. Excellent food and friendly service. Would gladly stay with this host again. Thanks again Andy!


January 2019

Gorgeous & Friendly !

Andy was a generous host and we enjoyed chatting with him. Gorgeous views as well as a quiet night sleep


January 2019

Beautiful views and great host

We came for a night and left with a new friend. Andy is such a great host. We truly enjoyed his company and shared many laughs. The property has breathtaking views. Highly recommended!


January 2019

Great host!

This was my first Boondockers Welcome stay, and it couldn’t have been better! Andy is wonderfully personable — and fun. When we went to dinner, his favorite restaurant was unexpectedly closed, so we went to his second-favorite, which was excellent. The views from his home, and the night sky with so many stars (and the Milky Way too) were astounding. He’s an animal lover too, BTW, but he’ll make sure you have as little or as much to do with his dog and cat as is appropriate for you. Would I stay again? Absolutely!!!


January 2019

What a Great Host !

What a great place to visit. Andy is a great Host and is very knowledgeable about the history of the area. Knows about the best restaurants as well. We stayed an extra day and were tempted to stay longer. Our thanks to Andy for everything he did for us.


January 2019

Great host and beautiful space!

Andy was very friendly and welcoming of his property and home. His dog was also very friendly and welcoming of my little pup! Thank you Andy for my first stay with boondockers being such a positive one. I may be back to visit again! :)


January 2019

Great views and hospitality!

Andy has a beautiful place with breathtaking views of the Organ Mountains, along with great hospitality! Make sure you visit Chope’s for some tacos!


January 2019


Andy and Buddy (his rescue dog) were very gracious hosts and made us very welcome...even after our last-minute change in plans and request to stay at his awesome New Mexico location. We arrived just around dinner time so Andy drove us to a local restaurant specializing in authentic Mexican food. Andy is a regular at this long-time family restaurant as he was well known to the staff to the point that we were treated royally. If you are in the area, don't miss this one!!


January 2019

Most excellent!

Quiet rural location with gracious host.


January 2019

Super Host

It’s too bad Boondockers Welcome doesn’t have a choice for Super Host. If so Andy01usa would be marked as that!! He was very knowledgeable about the area and had great suggestions on places to see and visit! If you’re coming to the area we highly recommend you reach out to Andy101usa. We now have a new friend in New Mexico!

Monsoon Season

In spite rain and mud, we were happy to take shelter from the inclement weather with Andy who went out of his way to make sure we set up for a pleasurable hospitable stay. Next day's bonus was to see the desert breaking into bloom from the rain.


December 2018

Very nice stay

Andy gave us great directions, met us at his driveway and helped me back in.

This was a great stop, our Boxer Stella had a great time with Buddy, Andy's dog. We went out to dinner with Andy and another Boondocker at a local Mexican restaurant. His place has a fantastic view.

Andy and I hit it off. We have lots of things in common politically and personally.


December 2018

Nice place and great host!

Andy is a very attentive and welcoming person ! I loved my stay and would go back anytime!


December 2018

Most welcoming host ever!

Andy greeted us with a big smile, making us and our dog feel immediately welcome and comfortable. He guided us in and helped us hook up to both electric and water - both so nice to have when boondocking. He had lots of ideas for hikes and things to do in the area, as well as information about the Las Cruces and El Paso area in general. His sweet dog Buddy and our Millie had a great time playing tag together - though Millie was never able to catch spry Buddy - she had a great time anyway. Thanks Andy for a wonderful stay - we may see you again on our way back west!


December 2018

Peace and Quiet :D

Andy was a lovely host. My husband and I arrived exhausted after two long days of driving and each of us battling a cold. Andy graciously offered us an extra night stay so we could rest and get better. His property is very peaceful. It was just what we needed!


November 2018

Nice isolated ranch, very quiet.

Andrew is very welcoming and he is a great person . We really enjoyed our stay.


November 2018

Great Hosts

We had a wonderful experience staying at this location. We used there 15 amp electric on the coldest night of our fulltime adventure so far. Their property was easy to park our 30' travel trailer and level. The hosts were friendly and we greatly enjoyed our conversations. We hope to see them again in the near future.


July 2018

Incredible HOSTS!

Andy and Laura were the penultimate, generous hosts. They were exceptionally welcoming, and Andy has an unbounded knowledge of the local cultural, business, and historical elements around the area. Their property is so quiet! Do not be discouraged by the lefts and rights your GPS is going to ask you to make. The property is outside of Las Cruces by maybe 15 miles. But, it is located in the most beautiful pecan-growing countryside we have encountered.
We look forward to another trip where we can spend more time exchanging stories about our combined life experiences. You will enjoy learning about Andy's passion for entrepreneurship and the range of business experiences comprising his background.


May 2018

Mesa top views

Very friendly hosts, it was like visiting with old friends. We shared dinner and company and enjoyed a quiet night filled with stars.


April 2018

You won’t regret your stay here!

We had so much fun with Andy and Laura. Andy has enough stories and advice to keep you entertained for a lifetime, and Laura is so sweet and easy to talk to. We got the full New Mexico experience, complete with road runners, bunnies, giant rabbits, red chili chicken, homemade ribs, and desert exploration. And the view of the mountains is incredible! This couple is both hilarious and hospitable, and we would love to stay with them again in the future. They went from boondocking hosts to friends in such a short amount of time. Don’t pass this place up!


April 2018

From strangers to friends

We're not too sure about the cats but Andy, Laura & Buddy are among the most friendly critters we've met in the USA. We arrived as strangers but parted as friends. From the first hug when we arrived both Andy & Laura made us feel right at home. Andy especially is full of life and the four of us had plenty to discuss. They are full of travel tips. Don't miss City of Rocks SP. We hope that we can meet up again ... Andy, Australia is not that far. Thanks again for the hospitality.
