Description

I am 6 miles from Holloman AFB, and there are several attractions locally and within short drives. Carlsbad Caverns are about 3 hours away. Unfortunately, most of these places are currently closed due to Covid restrictions. RV parking here is on dirt in my backyard with no fencing. There is a free dump station about a mile and a half from here.

House Rules

You are welcome to use my outside 120V electric box, and hook up to my outdoor city water tap. My next door neighbor has 3 dogs in his fenced yard. They are friendly, but active barkers. A generator can be used on a limited basis. A dumpster is very close, and a free RV dump station is less than 2 miles away. I am also less than 2 miles from 2 Wal-Mart stores. There is a decent hospital about 3 miles away if needed. While I go along with social distancing during this so called pandemic, I do not wear a mask on my own property. I generally only check my emails in the morning, and late at night, so don't expect immediate responses.

Access Road Conditions

All city streets, no access problems.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

Some room adjacent to RV or on the street.

Three Dog Nights

TH was a welcoming host, and his location is so close to the White Sand Dunes (we went twice!).
Do bring a pair of ear plugs, the neighbor's three dogs bark all night. The puppers are friendly though and lick you through the fence. We'd stay again!

First Guest @ Ted’s

I was delighted to be Ted’s first Boondocker’s guest.
His humble abode space is centrally located In Alamogordo and 16 miles from White Sands.
Ted’s space accommodated my 23’ RV and 14’ toad w/water and 15 amp electric if you need it. A free dump station is close.
Ted was very welcoming and assisted me w/my setup. He’s also very personable was was kind to drive me on la tour of an overview of the town.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, going to White Sands, Missle Museum was Covid closed, yet would highly recommend Ted’s for your stay.
Also has a great view from his front porch of magical sunsets!
