I have a large driveway at my home in Reno, most likely available for up to 25-30 feet. 30 amp hookup and water is available. I would not want to have long term boondockers, possibly two/three days at a time. I would have to put my 25-ft RV in the street for duration, so I would want to limit availability. ONe pet would be okay, so long as it is kept on leash and not left in the vehicle unattended. This spot would be unavailable during periods of snow and ice, basically November through February, although some periods might be clear, all depends on weather, as I am at 5K feet.

Respite in the city!

We were welcomed by Christina, Cathy's daughter. Cathy was 'on-the road' also. We were quickly set up and barbecuing our brats right on her driveway! It was a super quiet location and fit our slide-in camper on our pick up. If we'd had anything longer, it would have been a challenge. I can tell you this is located in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood very convenient to all Reno has to offer. We were quickly given the wifi password...which worked well. Also, Christina showed us where the water hose was located (very close) and the 30-amp electric plug-in...a real bonus. We would definitely stay here again. Cathy...if you get over to Colorado at any point, we would be happy to host you at our location. Thank you to Cathy and Christina for their wonderful hospitality. Dex and Carol Lawson

Peaceful night

A nice, flat, spacious, concrete driveway that was easy to find and back into. Very quiet, especially for a Friday. Having a 30amp hookup was a bonus. Thanks.

Memorable stay in Reno

Cathy and her daughter made our brief stay in Reno memorable. We were invited into Cathy's comfortable home, and in no time we were served a great meal, which was welcome after a long tough slog on Highway 50, (The Loneliest Highway in the U.S.). We had a great evening of lively conversation. Cathy made room for our rig in her driveway, and allowed us to hook up to her 30 Amp service. Thanks for your kindness Cathy. Erwin and Linda

Lovely lady and great Frittattas

We went to stay with Cathy earlier this month, only intending one night but it rained all the next day so we settled ourselves on her drive for another peaceful night. We shared a bottle of wine with her, her daughter Christina and friend Patti (?), great conversation, good reccommendations and she even gave us delicious frittatta cupcakes for our breakfast. Thanks for the wifi as well, and I forgot to say, Cathy moved her own RV to let us hook up!

Great place; great power!

========== We stayed for two nights in their large driveway and it was a great accomodation. Large area outside the front door side for lawn chairs, etc. but when we were there (4th of July 2013), it was hot, Hot, HOT! So we were VERY grateful for her 30 amp outlet on the side of the garage which allowed us to run the AC with no issues. They also had a water hose in front for topping off water. AND wifi access (sending that key kit back to you today). Cathy and Christina made our stay very worthwhile. We had to leave early but it was no reflection on them! There is a convenience store right by the roundabout you drive through to get to the house and propane is nearby too . . . just stop for directions at the first RV park. ========== JIM PETERSON <sail4free> ==========
