As I get closer to retirement, I can't wait to "hit the road". In the meantime, I am happy to meet new friends passing through my area. It's so much fun to welcome everyone and to share a bit of New Mexico.
I am still working full time for a hotel in Albuquerque as a Catering Manager. I work long hours but that won't keep me from opening my place to new RV friends. I live with four (Yes....FOUR....including two new puppies) standard poodles on five acres in the East Mountains out of Albuquerque.
I love to do genealogy research and am anxious to visit some spots in Tennessee, Virginia, Maryland and Kentucky to "dig up" some ancestors.
I am working towards my retirement dreams and have been the recipient of many great new ideas from my guests. It's been wonderful to share travel stories with my new friends.
I am a bit of an historian and love to share my knowledge of the history of New Mexico. I have an interest in traveling around Mexico and eventually around Central and South America. For those RVers wondering about traveling to Mexico, I am happy to share my knowledge and tell some "tall tales", too.
I have three standard poodles including a crazy, fun-loving puppy. The puppy is a hand-full and I am challenged every day with her antics. They love to travel.......anywhere!
One of these days......I will be out "there", too. Counting down to retirement and full-time RVing. Right now, I love to head to the mountains around New Mexico for a little weekend get-away. I know a great place about 3 hours from my house that has a fabulous hot spring within walking distance. That's a great place to spend the weekend.
Sandia Park, NM....in the East Mountains out of Albuquerque.....close to Sandia Ski Area and the Crest of the Sandia Peak.....close to the Sandia Man Cave...... My home is at approximately 7,200 feet so during the winter months it is quite chilly and usually very snowy here. There may be times during winter months when I would recommend not to even try getting here from where-ever you are. The roads here get quite icy and can be closed down by the State Police at anytime during a severe storm. When we have a big snow, it is measured in feet and I am sometime a little slow at doing all that hand shoveling. By April, the weather is usually stabilizing BUT we have had big storms in April some years.
I have an oldie but a goodie.....a 33' Travelmaster Class A built in 1988. I may need to look at something a little newer one of these days. My dogs and I have traveled many, many adventure-filled miles in "THE BARGE" and I look forward to always taking the path less traveled and checking to see what's behind the next curve in the road. I usually tow my quad on a small trailer behind.
Patryk was a wonderful and accommodating host with sweet dogs and beautiful property. Our little spot included a sitting area with hammock to watch the sunset.
Very generous and welcoming lady with 4 beautiful dogs. She was super helpful to us as my wife was sick and she took me to the grocery and offered medicine if needed. Unfortunately we had to leave early to get some medical attention for my wife but that doesn’t change my opinion of our stay. The lady is a doll and we would stay here again if invited. She has a gorgeous property and those sunsets are to die for!
Great location for us and although we didn't meet, directions were spot on. Thanks.
Mustang Chaser is the perfect Boondockers experience. Beautiful, private, quite location with a beautiful vibe that emanates from the host's soul. If in the area I highly recommend not just for the great location, but the opportunity to meet a true fellow traveler.
Spent 1 nite with Patryka in May. Lovely weather and host was very gracious and accommodating. Must be very careful on entering loop driveway as utility cables scraped our 11 ft 7 inch roof. Newer/higher coaches will not get under the cables. Our 32 foot class A is about all the driveway can handle. Patryka lost her horse several months ago and is in the grieving process. Thuroughly enjoyed our stay.
We really liked staying here with Mustang Chaser, who could not have been a more gracious host. Such a beautiful area and so convenient to Albuquerque and Santa Fe. Getting to meet the dogs and horse was just icing on the cake.
Thanks again for hosting our family during our journey the western USA. Wish we could have spent more time arround to see all the beauties of NM and the Sandia Park area. Hope to be back someday in the winter time for some great skiing.
Mustang Chaser is such a sweet lady and her 2 poodles are a great team of very friendly dogs. I hope I can return to enjoy the junipers and Paloma, her mare.
The space is tight, but my 25ft camper could enter her drive way which is a semicircular one with 2 gates.
Also, it is very well situated, 10 miles from Edgewood, where there's a nice library, and close to Albuquerque and Santa Fe'.
Her Wi-Fi worked well for me and I got electric too!
Warm friendly and welcoming. Thanks so much for allowing us to stay with you. Great place and very accommodating. We had a wonderful time at the balloon festival and we look forward to caravanning to Mexico with you. :)
Patryka was kind and helpful and a pleasure to share an evening with before I left. I hope to visit again one day. Thanks again!
Much enjoyed my stay here. I not only got to visit with Patryka, but got to get a dose of horse therapy by feeding her horse an apple and some carrots. It was a relaxing environment and she thoughtfully provided me with electric also. It was my first experience using 'Boondockers Welcome' and look forward to the next opportunity.
What a fabulous hostess! I have found a new friend in Patryka. I so enjoyed my stay and hope to come back in the future to this awesome area of New Mexico. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for all your kindnesses.
Stayed during Mustang Chaser's most frantic work time, yet she found time to be welcoming and helpful. My highest recommendation.
We thoroughly enjoyed staying here near the City of Albuquerque, N. Mexico. Our hostess was very accommodating and we enjoyed the tranquility and serenity here. Highly recommend this location.
