Quick overnight stay

Parked parallel close to the road, there’s a bit of a hill on the other side. Host was great, we just stayed for a quick overnight.

Great stay

This was our first Boondockers Welcome and it was a great experience. The location is conveniently located to Elizabethon, Johnson City, Jonesboro and even a Bristol -all of the places we wanted to see. This location is very close to the road, but we found it very quiet and fairly level. It overlooks a very pretty field. The hosts were great to deal with and allowed us to stay, even though they weren’t home until our last day ( we stayed 3 nights). The host recommended a great bbq place right down the road, and he was right!
Thank you to our hosts for letting us stay on your property. We appreciate your generosity and would definitely stay in this spot again.

Great stay!

Where do we start? Awesome hosts! Perfect location for visiting family in area. He is a wealth of knowledge on the area and traveling out west. Will definitely stay again when in the area. He handmade a tool to fix the shimmy on the hitch mount bike rack. Very welcoming and friendly 😊

Nicest southern folks you'll ever meet

They took us into their home, and showed us several places to see on our travels. You don't find many hosts like that. They know a lot when it comes to visit places. As a matter of fact we need to get in touch with them when we head out this spring.

Entertaining and educational

A great couple! Had a fun conversation covering many topics. Our host was entertaining and full of knowledge. We definitely learned a few things! Wish we could have had more time with them, but we we’re on the move. Parking was level and easy. They were also very quick to respond, which was great because we intended to go further, but just needed to stop somewhere. We’ll definitely stop back when in the area again!

Greatest folks in 10EC

Can't say enough kind things about this couple. Bob will make you laugh, and almost cry at some of the things he replies to you. Loretta is so warm, we only wish we could have spent more time with them. On our way to visit grandson in Virginia. Will return.

What a great couple

Pamm and I enjoyed our stay with Bob and Loretta, you won't find a more warm and wonderful pair of humans on this planet. We could have talked for hours, maybe days. He shared so many "go see this" place around the US, and even which way to travel to see them. (driving north or south). He showed me many tricks to fixing some of my problems with my rig, and where to get the best barbaque within 1 mile from his house. I tried to pick him up a sandwich, but Loretta had steak in the oven, so he made me take the extra sandwish on the road with us. I told him I would get up at 6 the next day, but we slept like babies and didn't get up until 10 AM. It was alright with Bob, he had more great stories that morning. We had so much fun with them. We made a friend. We will be back!!!!!

We felt like family around Loretta & Robert.. They were so nice to be around and both very helpful.. Robert is so funny !!!He shared some of his travels with us..We had planned on staying 3 days, but there was a NASCAR race not far from their home and My husband is a big fan so we decided to stay at the racetrack .
I highly recommended you stop at their home would loved to have stayed longer..
Thank you Robert & Loretta for your kindness..

Nice country setting

These folk are Bon-a-fide good people. Think I found a brother from another mother. :) His bride is just as nice.

Very nice host and hostess

Robert and Loretta we very sweet and helpful. Space was a little hard to get my truck camper level on as I also have 2 slides, and it was dark when I got there finally. It was also a bit noisy with a factory that is a mill nearby somewhere. But around midnight I thought they stopped as I went to sleep. However Robert told me the next day that they didn’t stop, I must have just fallen asleep. He is hard of hearing so he can’t hear it he stated. Lol. Well it didn’t bother me.

Note: the site is pretty level for vehicles that aren’t 8 feet wide like mine is.

I learned some important history from the as well. I like that about Boondocking! I learn from everywhere I have stayed.

Thanks Robert and Loretta! Merry Christmas to you both!

Great Place. Great People!

We had a great stay at 10EC Launch Pad. From guiding us into our spot to letting us know about some local sights they were super helpful. We hope our travels take us back sometime soon. Great folks.

Good people

Your life may not be the same once you’ve been a guest of these folks ... Sometimes life’s greatest adventures are just parking and visiting... I will remember this stay for the wrest of my life
... with much laughter and fondness...

Welcoming and Helpful

Special thanks for letting my daughter park at their home while she travels around the US and for giving her some great ideas of where to visit in the West. It makes a Mom feel better to know such nice people are willing to share their time and home.

Welcoming Tennessee Boondocking stop

I needed a place to park safely on my way north. Thank heavens for 10EC (Robert/Loretta) for responding to my request and giving me a safe place to park and sleep for the night. It was dark and raining when I arrived - very convenient right off of US19E -- and Robert helped me get parked and we chatted briefly. If you are anywhere near them -- I recommend you stop at their place.

Great Folks

Robert and Loretta were very nice folks. He was out by the road when we arrived after dark with a flashlight so we would not go by his place. Robert installed two new deep cycle batteries to replace my old ones. He would not take any money for his work and it took several hours including the trip to Johnson City, TN to pick up the batteries. We plan to go back sometime in the near future to see these nice folks.
